Eixample Derecha Penthouse with Private Terrace for Sale
Live your Barcelona life from the rooftop! This duplex penthouse is something truly extraordinary. The apartment has more than 100m2 on the main floor, comprising two bedrooms, one of which is a master suite, a generous kitchen dining area and a large lounge. From the lounge you climb the stairs to the large rooftop terrace. This whole roof can be used and transformed according to several options which you can discuss with the developer.
This modernist penthouse is located in Trafalgar Street in Eixample Derecha, just a few steps from Arc de triomf, the Cuitadela Park and the “Nord” train station.
This luxuxy apartment in Eixample is a 2 bed apartment measuring 104.4m2 downstairs with an upstairs section and a double roof terrace. It has a generous lounge area that gives onto the balcony over Trafalgar street. The front section of the house has been designed to maximise space and comfort. The lounge covers the whole width of the apartment and is adjacent to the kitchen dining area. As you can see on the plan the kitchen and dining section have the perfect layout for entertaining. The two bedrooms, including the master suite, are located on the “evening” area of the apartment.
In this project there is only one apartment per floor, which affords maximum privacy. The elevator opens directly into the apartment and is operated with a private key function. The apartment is accessed from the central area where there is an elegant vestibule with a “patch” of original Barcelona mosaic tiles. The colour and beauty of this pattern provide a charming welcome for you and your visitors.
To the left as we walk in we have the kitchen, and then the dining area in front of the kitchen island. The quality of the materials will be one of the first things that stand out for anyone who walks through the door. Of course the most stunning feature, in our opinion, are the well preserved, large wooden beams that make up the traditional ceiling. Truly wonderful.
Beyond the kitchen dining area we find the lounge area which is 30m2. From this room we have a staricase that takes us to the room upstairs. This is where the fun really begins!
The top part of the penthouse has a room which can be used as a bedroom or a lounge. This gives out on to a large front terrace that faces Trafalgar Street. This terrace links to a much larger private terrace that affords all of the space and comfort you can wish for. The developer will liaise with the buyer to finalise the private terrace to the buyer’s taste.
The building was built in 1900 and is a classic example of the properties in the Eixample Derecha district of Barcelona. The developer, a company with many years of experience in Barcelona, is renovating the whole building which means upgrading all of the plumbing, wiring and also adding a brand new lift. The most impressive aspects of the classic features, such as the ceiling, have been restored carefully to bring out their beauty. The floors are being replaced with more modern wooden parquet flooring but the tiles that have been recovered will be placed as a “rug” section in the entrance of each apartment.
