Full description:

This stunning Eixample modernist apartment is in the central Calle Trafalgar in Barcelona, in a listed building which was built in 1875. Trafalgar is near to Plaza Urquinaona Square and is within walking distance to all of the central sights and attractions of Barcelona. Buying a property in such a central location in Barcelona is a privilege in itself but in this case you get even more. The property is a wonderful example of the modernist movement of architecture that flourished in Barcelona in the 1920s. Own a wonderful property as well as a slice of classic Barcelona history.

The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of the building. The sun is on the Calle Trafalgar side of the property in the afternoon and receives the morning light from the interior patio.

The apartment has been totally refurbished and restored, combining its original modernist characteristics with carefully selected modern touches and the very best materials. It has a grand entrance hall, two single bedrooms, an auxiliary bathroom, a kitchen and a living room area with wonderful gallery style windows and terrace. The two main suites have a grand dressing area of 12m2 and 7m2. These two suites also have grand balconies and modern bathrooms.

It maintains many of its original elements such as its mosaic tile floors, its interior and exterior woodwork and its artisan ceiling features.

Refurbished Modernist apartment in a listed modernist building

Imagine the history and the stories that a building like this has been witness to. Built in 1875 the central location of the building has made it a unique witness to the pass of time, the changes of the tendencies in the city and yet it has maintained its modernist roots to today. The building, which has been residential since its construction, consists of a total of seven floors, with a ground floor, a first floor, and five more.

Due to its formal construction characteristics, the building has been listed within the 'Patrimonio del Ayuntamiento de Barcelona', and is now considered to be a point of urban interest, with protection level C. It has stone pillars with arched openings, and looking from the front it has a symmetrical facade with a central point of focus coinciding with each apartment entrance. The buildings openings all have vertically aligned French windows, a traditional feature of modernist apartments. The windows get gradually smaller as you go up the floors, they each open onto balconies with decorative supports, and wrought iron railings, and this is consistent for all the floors except the first one which features a central balcony design.

The apartment, with a surface area of over 200m2, has been designed in accordance with classic modernist buildings within Barcelona's Eixample: It's an apartment opening up onto both the street and an interior courtyard, with solid load baring walls within and classic Catalan Vault ceilings. Its exquisite mosaic floors are also noteworthy; they vary in geometric shapes and colours and are another typical feature of buildings of the time. It has impressive three meter high ceilings with intricate artisan cornices throughout.

Due to its interior organization and the buildings position, the daytime area is focused around the interior courtyard. The living room, dining room, terrace and gallery pace are all bathed in sunlight from first thing in the morning right up until the early afternoon. The nighttime area, such as the bedrooms, are all positioned facing Calle Trafalgar, and they receive sun in the early afternoon, and the height of the apartment also prevents too much noise pollution from the street below.
