The footprint of the architect Antonio Gaudi in Barcelona is one of the greatest heritage and tourism assets of Barcelona. However, the work of this modernist genius was not confined to the urbanised Barcelona as there are many other notable examples in different parts of this province. In the 4th August edition, the prestigious newspaper The New York Times paid recognition to a stately home in Santa Coloma de Cervelló, which is a manor house included in the portfolio of Engel & Völkers.
Since the article's publication, interest in this property boomed. Following the same pattern as other important men in Barcelona, such as the industrialist Eusebio Güell, Gaudi whose orders gave birth to some of the most visited buildings in Barcelona, decided to build a house on the outskirts of the city. The subject property would combine functionality and comfort, since Güell's intention was to provide accommodation to the staff members who worked in various factories.
