This design apartment recently renovated for sale is located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. If you would like to live in a typical Barcelona apartment that has a part of the city’s history, this will be your ideal home! The property is 5 minutes walk from the Ramblas, at the level of the famous Liceu theater. In addition, it is surrounded by historical treasures of the city such as the Gothic church of Santa María del Pi, and very close to the Plaza de Sant Jaume where the town hall is located. And of course, this flat is surrounded by all kinds of shops and with an ideal public transport connection for getting around the city.
This property has a very special design. It is located on the principal floor (1st) of an old building. It has an area of 190m2 and the space is distributed in 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a large living room. The house is characterized by very high ceilings and despite having been completely renovated, it still preserves original details such as the ceilings with Catalan volta and the exposed walls with bricks and old frescoes. This home perfectly combines traditional elements with an exquisite minimalist design.
Being on a narrow street, natural light does not reach directly the interior areas of the house. The architect Gus Wüstemann, owner of the house, carried out a reform to solve this problem, using built-in white cabinets and an incredible lighting system in the kitchen and bathroom, which are the heart of the house. Thus the area where the kitchen, the three bedrooms and the bathroom are located is perfectly lit.
When we enter this renovated design apartment for sale in El Gothic, we find on our left the spacious living-dining room with three large windows that let in a lot of natural light and have access to two large balconies. To our right is the first bathroom and next to it is the entrance to the kitchen. The kitchen is in a passage area to optimize space and is furnished with white fitted wardrobes. A little further on, we find the bathroom, which forms a cross with the kitchen and is also decorated in white to increase the luminosity. It has a shower and two spouts to wash your hands. Finally, we find the single bedroom on the right and the double bedroom on the left.
Do not miss the opportunity to live in this unique home with such a careful design in one of the most emblematic areas of Barcelona. Book your visit!

The Old Town District
Ciutat Vella (old town in Catalan) is a district composed of 4 districts. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea in the southernmost part of the city and by Plaza Catalunya, Plaza Universidad and Plaza Urquinaona in the north. Ciutat Vella, in addition to being an architectural showcase with an impressive historical and cultural heritage, is one of the main restaurant and bar areas in the city of Barcelona. There are many alternative shops with their bohemian atmosphere which, together with the richness of the cultural offer, make the Ciutat Vella district one of Barcelona’s main attractions.
Barcelona’s old city is divided into four main areas. On one side is the Raval, a district with a rich multicultural environment and a strong commitment to cultural spaces. You also have the Gothic Quarter with its particular architecture and magnificent shopping streets. The third is the district of Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera, where Borne is located, a very bohemian part of the district, and then Barceloneta, an urban beach where you will find the best fish restaurants in Barcelona.
