Spectacular 8-bedroom Arabic modernist villa with pool, lots of privacy and wonderful views for sale in the Eixample district of Sant Cugat del Vallès.

Lucas Fox is pleased to present this magnificent modernist home called La Casa Generalife. It is a building in the town of Sant Cugat del Vallés (Vallès Occidental) included in the Inventory of the Architectural Heritage of Catalonia. It is a summer home of Arabesque style, commissioned to the architect Eduard Maria Balcells in 1919.

This spectacular modernist house has an area of 822 m² on a plot of 1,040 m². It is distributed over five floors and has two completely independent annexes.

We enter the house from a majestic entrance and we find the hall that leads to the landing of the stairs and a guest toilet. On the right, we find a spacious living room of 36 m² that connects with a second living room of 22 m², a study of 14 m², a dining room of 14 m² and a kitchen of 17 m² completely renovated with access to one of the patios. All rooms have plenty of natural light, thanks to their beautiful horseshoe-shaped Neo-Arabic windows.

Going up the stairs, we access the first floor and we find a balcony and to the right, a spacious 32 m² living room with access to the night area. It has two double bedrooms that share a complete bathroom and a master suite with access to the balcony, two dressing rooms and a complete bathroom.

On the rooftop floor we find two storage rooms, a bedroom with a private bathroom and a large, totally separate utility area.

On the top floor, we access a viewpoint with incredible views, covered with a dome.

Outside, the different patios and gardens stand out on two levels with a fabulous Byzantine dome, a 5 × 12 metre saltwater pool area and a chill-out area. From one of the gardens, we access the guest house, which has all the comforts and is distributed in a bedroom with a complete private bathroom, a dressing room and a living-dining room with an integrated kitchen and access to a magnificent balcony. From the garden, we also access the summer dining area, with an outdoor and indoor dining room, with barbecue, fully equipped kitchen, guest toilet, sauna and bathroom with a shower.
