Poblesec, Barcelona | January 2019
This beautiful house of 63 m2 is located in the neighborhood of Poble Sec, in a very quiet street, near the Parc de Montjuïc and 5 minutes from the metro station Paral·lel. It is a Principal floor (first real) located in a typical royal estate architecture of Barcelona of the early twentieth century, very well maintained and restored.
The floor opens to the façade of Tapioles Street with a continuous balcony that goes from side to side and gives a lot of light to the living room and one of the rooms. The integral reform has been made with a modern style but at the same time trying to preserve and maximize all the unique architectural features of its time. It has very high ceilings, preserved in their original format with metal beams and classic Catalan ceramic vaults. The original hydraulic mosaics, with different geometric patterns and colors in each space, have been preserved and restored almost in their entirety. They have also been able to maintain almost all the woodwork, incorporating double glass with camera. In the area of the kitchen and the bathroom two new aluminum carpentries have been lacquered in matt white.
The space is distributed in a very functional and compact way, without corridors. From the entrance door, through a small hallway you can access the bathroom, which is very spacious and comfortable and gives access to a laundry room where the electric heater and the connection to install the washing machine are located. This same lobby opens onto a large open space where the kitchen is located, with a bar table with stools and the dining table. Crossing two arches, this space communicates with a large and bright room from which you can access the outside balcony. The two double rooms are accessed from the common area, one is Tapioles Street and the other has a balcony to the interior patio, both are equipped with fitted wardrobes.
The house has been completely renovated; all the water, sanitation and electricity installations have been made new. The living room and the two bedrooms have hot / cold air conditioning machines. The kitchen is equipped with integrated fridge and dishwasher, oven, extractor hood and induction hob. The apartment is delivered completely furnished.
