There’s plenty of natural light and a historic vibe to this Barcelona apartment on the city’s Paseo de Gracia, which is listed for sale as a ‘restoration opportunity’.
Fantastic Frank is selling the five-bedroom bolthole for €1.8m. It’s located centrally in Eixample Right, next to fashion stores, restaurants, wine bars and art galleries along the avenue, which is famous for its modernist architecture.
The apartment is nestled inside one such building and is bright all day long. Rooms are free-flowing, with an open living room and dining room with lofty ceilings and original mouldings – all white-washed for a monochrome look.
Marble flooring runs underfoot, and windows peek onto the street below, offering a spectacular vantage point for people watching.
It could use a spruce, and at 1938 sq ft, would benefit from introducing an additional bathroom and an updated kitchen. But location is king, and there is a lot to inspire its renovation.
