This elegant 8-bedroom listed villa dates from 1917 and was designed by Enric Sagnier, a contemporary of Antoni Gaudí and the architect responsible for the new Customs House at the port in Barcelona.

As well as being one of the city’s finest Modernista mansions, this breathtaking property is in one of the most sought-after residential areas of the city, situated on a very large plot in an elevated position, with 4 floors and lovely views.

All the magnificent hallmarks of interior design’s belle epoque are here, including elegant marquetry floors and decorative fireplaces in the reception rooms, a deeply polished mahogany library and elegant brass and crystal chandeliers. There is also a dramatic, marble tiled hall that would have been the stage for some of the most elegant parties in the city.

Outside, a stone staircase leads through the grounds to the front door and provides a grand entrance, while various terraces and more formal walled gardens provide plenty of space for relaxed entertaining. There is also a separate staff or guest house.

This is the perfect family home but also has the size and stature to make an ideal corporate headquarters. A recent renovation has retained and rejuvenated the rich history of the house but brought it into the contemporary era with the addition of modern-day essentials such as air conditioning and central heating.
