This beautiful property was built in 1902 by famous architect Maurici Augé and retains many of its original features. Completely restored in 2000 and used as a private club in recent years, it can easily be returned to its original form to offer a wonderful family home.

The striking architecture stands out in a neighbourhood famous for its landmark properties. The ornate façade and meticulous detailing are works of art, with tiles and intricate ironwork reflecting the style of the city’s other famous architect Antoni Gaudí.

At the same time, bold, purposeful lines create a sense of strength. The fabulous turret emphasizes the feel of a castle and leads to a roof terrace with 360º views across Barcelona, from the port and sea to Montjuїc, Tibidabo mountain and the Collserola natural park.

The lower three floors house the main accommodation and includes high ceilings and a fireplace. The second floor, which is currently used as an independent studio, is ideal for conversion into two stunning suites. This level also has beautiful views and a terrace.

Outside in the sheltered garden a lovely swimming pool, covered terrace and chill out areas are framed by tumbling bougainvillaea and mature trees. There is also a large 5-car garage.

Location

Pedralbes is one of Barcelona’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, with big detached houses, mature trees and a sense of being in a privileged position very close to town and yet with fresher air and more space.

This villa is perfectly positioned for easy access to the city centre, but has on its doorstep some excellent international schools – including Benjamin Franklin and the American School – as well as some of the best sports and social clubs and bars and restaurants in town.

The excellent road network is also within easy reach and brings the airport and coast within a 10-minute drive, which is perfect for international families.
