A designer luxury pad is a must for urbanites, but not many would believe that a detached house with double bedroom, open plan kitchen and living area, bathroom and private terrace would be within their reach.

The staircase from the ground floor

Urbane Barcelona is currently marketing a unique renovated house in the charming and quiet residential area of La Sagrera in Barcelona. The neighbourhood lies at the foot of the Collserola mountain range and offers great views over the city and is the ideal pad for the city businessman or woman and is priced at just €220,000.

Is there a catch? Not really. The house has been designed with functionality in mind and offers the utmost in style within its 18m2 per floor surface area. The ground floor features a compact living room with bathroom and open kitchen, the second floor a double bedroom and staircase to the private terrace, which lies on the roof space and creates the ideal spot for barbecues, relaxing and catching the sun’s rays. In all, this pad, which also has air-conditioning, offers 54m2 of designer living space in one of Barcelona’s most tranquil and enchanting areas.

There’s also access to the roof terrace

Mike Williams, Director, Urbane Barcelona, explains: “Many business people seek an apartment in the city centre for somewhere to stay during the week before returning to the family home. This unique and appealing house really does offer something very different for the urban resident looking for their own space with a quirkier nature.”

The neighbourhood of La Sagrera

La Sagrera maintains its traditional character thanks to its beautifully preserved cobbled streets, architecturally-stunning squares with arcades and shops. Unlike most neighbourhoods of Barcelona, this part of the city doesn’t have many tourists and keeps its local appeal. The area also has a well-developed infrastructure offering easy access to the city centre by numerous bus routes and several metro stations. It’s also home to prestigious schools and hospitals and is ideal for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, but enjoy its many attractions within minutes.
