The metropolitan area of Barcelona is one of the most attractive areas of Spain to invest in residential properties. The advantages are pretty remarkable: quick access to the Catalan capital, notable services of all kinds (education, health, entertainment ...) and great social atmosphere but without all the hustle and bustle of a capital city. Among the regions that surround the city of Barcelona, Maresme or Vallés Oriental is one of the most sought-after regions. This is where we can find an impressive mansion in the peaceful town of Llinars del Vallès.
The property in question is a single-family house in which no detail is missing and is within the municipality known as Torre Carolina. Built in 1926, the mansion has undergone several renovations that have given it its impeccable appearance. This has been done through the essence of a classical finish and much distinction that shares its image with certain concessions to modernity (these can mainly be seen in the kitchen and some of the living rooms). Of course, the first surprising note on the outside of the house is the stately air that imbues everything, from the cornices of the windows to the arcade entrances.
The available plot offers almost 2,000 square metres, with a constructed area that reaches 640 square metres. Undoubtedly, one of the great challenges for the new owners will be to take advantage of the numerous possibilities offered by this mansion's gardens. Another outdoor space that draws attention is the private tennis court. Inside the house, the exclusivity becomes truly patent. From the outset, most of its interior fixtures and fittings seem to go hand-in-hand with natural light. This overtakes everything thanks to the strategic layout of the rooms and their numerous windows.
Eleven rooms, seven full bathrooms, living rooms, library, cellar, basement, two parking spaces ... These are just some of the reasons why the Carolina Tower stands out as one of the best summer villas (estiueig, in Catalan) that are most representative in the north of Barcelona. The purpose of these large properties was to serve as temporary accommodation for wealthy entrepreneurs (mostly industrialists) who had profitable businesses in Barcelona. Between the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, these businessmen fled from the then grey Barcelona, in search of the peace and quiet that an area such as Llinars del Vallès offered to them.
As for the benefits of the town, Llinars del Vallès has just over 9,700 inhabitants and is situated at the foot of a natural landscape with great beauty such as the Montseny massif. It is almost 40 km away from Barcelona and its transport links are exceptional.
