An unusual and spectacular oasis right in the centre of Barcelona. This penthouse has an indoor area of 63 m2 and two private terraces with stunning views over rooftops and beautiful historical buildings. The total terrace area is 75 m2.
The 63 m2 penthouse was completely refurbished in 2004 with high quality materials and a lot of charm. The design plays with the contrast between modern elements with clear lines and original elements such as Art Nouveau tile floors, wooden beams, oak parquet and handcrafted tiles in the shower.
It has an open fireplace, central heating with city gas, double glazed windows, high-quality aluminum carpentry and a kitchen with cooking island.
The first terrace with direct access from the apartment offers an intimate atmosphere with beautiful, expansive views over the roofs of the 15th century Gothic Santa Creu Hospital in the Raval district.
The second terrace, also private, is located at a higher level and offers stunning 360° views of Barcelona, Montjuic, Tibidabo, even as far as Montseny, 60 km away. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the magic of this unique neighborhood. The penthouse is remarkably quiet and tranquil, as its height means sounds from the street below cannot be heard. The sonic landscape is composed of the "laughter" of seagulls and the romantic sound of distant ship horns.
The penthouse is located on Calle Hospital (the ancient Via Romana), on the fifth floor of a renovated building without elevator, opposite the "Massana", the gothic Santa Creu Hospital (today an art school and library) with its fabulous courtyard decorated with orange trees and a fountain, just a few meters away from the Ramblas, the most emblematic promenade of Barcelona, and the Boquería market, in a lively, multicultural area. In the immediate vicinity, there are all types of services and public transport, the Liceu L3 metro, city bus and Bicing stations, etc. Walking distance to the port and the beach area.
As well as a being a remarkable home, the penthouse’s characteristics and central location make it an ideal investment.
