One block from Placa Universitat and one of Barcelonas most restaurant-rich streets, Enrique Granados, we find this unique corner apartment. Thanks to the unique floorplan we find four balconies and a fantastic ceiling height that gives a lot of space and light.
We are greeted in the entrance by the semi-open kitchen and the 28 m2 large livingroom with high balcony doors facing the street. On each side are the bedrooms, one of them with private bathroom and a walkin closet. To the right of the entrance is the second complete bathroom and a third bedroom with exit to a space in the inner courtyard. The smaller bedroom has interesting surfaces that can be suitable for example a childrens room or a home office-space.
The location is perfect for those who want to live in the center within walking distance of the Placa Universitat and Cataluña, which is the bigger location for the metrolines, commuter trains, buses and airport buses. You will find some of Barcelonas most popular restaurants and brunch cafées. For those who need to be close to the airport this is the right side of the city !
The apartment is completely renovated in 2018 with a nice mix of modernista details and modern materials. It is sold without furniture apart from the kitchen that has a lot of storage space and is fully equipped with high quality appliances.

In 1859 a competition was announced; the city wall was to be torn down and Barcelona was to expand, but to do this a design plan was required. The winning plan was drawn by architect Ildefons Cerdà, and he was given the honour of creating the modern Barcelona, with construction beginning in the 1860s.
Today, the district of L’Eixample fills the gap between Ciutat Vella and the former small towns outside Barcelona. The area is organised based on a grid plan, with properties built in squares, often with inner courtyards in the middle. L’Eixample is best known for its art nouveau architecture, and many of Gaudí’s most magnificent masterpieces can be found here, including Sagrada Família, La Pedrera (Casa Milà) and Casa Batlló.
L’Eixample is a large area stretching from Plaça de Catalunya to Diagonal, and is split into ‘L’Eixample Esquerra’ (left) and ‘L’Eixample Dreta’ (right), divided by Passeig de Gràcia. Quadrat d’Or, the golden square in Catalan, is an area around Passeig de Gràcia and featuring the largest collection in the world (comprising 150 in total) of protected buildings designed in the art nouveau style.
There is also a plentiful array of some of the best bars and restaurants in the city, not to mention a café culture that has blossomed with streets full of terraces and cafés. Barcelona’s main boulevard, Passeig de Gràcia, and the streets leading off it are home to first-class shopping, with shops from all the big designer chains.
The area is characterised by large apartments, the majority of buildings being equipped with lifts, and a limited number of smaller apartments.
The district is served by metro stations, the Ferrocarrils (offering connections to the areas immediately outside the city), and bus lines.
