The district of Gracia is one of the most popular in Barcelona not only for its famous festivals that, for many, put the finishing touch to the summer. The old town of Gracia is the perfect counterpoint to what we usually associate with the centre of big cities. Friendly social environments and a multitude of terraces and outdoor venues make up an authentic and lively street life. Today we will mention five penthouses that are available for sale or rent in Gracia.
The first property for sale is a newly built loft-style flat. It was built this year and stands out for the modernity of its materials and finishes, with a constructed area of 420 sqm, which ends in a terrace of more than 100 sqm. The building in which the penthouse is located dates from 1892, in the golden age of modernism in Barcelona.
The same authenticity applies to the original structure of the next flat that's for sale, which has more than a hundred years of history (built in 1900). Conceived as a loft-style penthouse that embraces the Zen philosophy, its design combines traditional elements (such as living room decking) with more modern features (like most of the furniture). The open-plan kitchen is another highlight of this penthouse.
Among the penthouses available for rent, the first one takes us to the very corner of Paseo de Gracia. It is a property in which natural light plays a major role in each and every room. The flooring is made from top quality material (the floor is laminate). The American kitchen gives full assistance to the large dining room, with capacity for ten guests in front of the huge window that leads to the terrace. This terrace, by the way, respects the general atmosphere of the property as its flooring is made from teak wood.
In the area of Vallcarca-Penitens, also known as the upper part of Gracia, there are two other penthouses that offer different features. On the one hand, we highlight an attic-style flat with communal pool built in 2016 (still brand new) that has a terrace of 75 sqm. The building has other communal facilities such as a games room and ample parking.
The last property that we must bring to your attention is a designer penthouse with a traditional exterior appearance that hides the interesting interior details. The sobriety of the walls (impeccably white) goes hand in hand with ceramic floors (stoneware tiles) and various colourful details (such as carpets and curtains). This bright and airy flat is properly equipped with appliances from well known brands.
