The new development Escudellers 44 perfectly symbolises Barcelona’s contemporary revival. Consisting of 16 apartments for sale in the heart of one of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of the Catalan capital, this development represents a unique investment opportunity in an up-and-coming destination.
The stones of this historic building were first laid more than 500 years ago to build a single-family house. The property has evolved over the years to today become a four-storey building with gothic features dating back to 1769. A real history emerges from this property and its original facade will be preserved during in order to retain its natural charm.
Over the next two years, the building will be fully renovated to create 16 apartments of the highest standards including a large luxury penthouse. This development is the result of the collaboration between an experienced developer and the famous architect Xavier Guitart from Barcelona, author of several successful projects in the city, including the renovation of Basilica Santa Maria del Pi. With the common objective to preserve the traditional charm of the building, the developer and architect will make use of noble materials creating a subtle blend between modernity and authenticity, combining comfort and aesthetics.
The properties for sale vary from 1 to 3 bedrooms and display generous interior spaces between 46 sqm and 141 sqm. All apartments will enjoy either balconies or some will boast a large private rooftop terrace from 13 to 77 sqm. The modern open plan kitchens and bathrooms are delivered fully equipped. Owners will be able to choose from a wide selection of tiles, parquet floors and coatings which are available to satisfy the requirements of an international clientele.
In addition, the ‘smart-home’ properties will benefit from advanced home automation which will offer residents comfort and safety. Owners will be able to configure their preferred home environment from anywhere in the world by choosing the intensity of light, setting the room temperature, or consulting the security system when away from home. Finally, thanks to the ‘smart-home’ technology, the energy consumption of the apartments will be fully optimized.
Besides its impeccable level of finishes and its innovative architecture, the Escudellers project is distinguished above all thanks to its unbeatable location. In the heart of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, the building is set in a charming pedestrian square with a children's playground and cafe terraces. The Gothic Quarter is one of the most sought-after and lively areas of the city. The culture is omnipresent with vestiges of the Middle Ages or the works of the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudì. The area is also popular for its trendy nightlife and restaurants or tapas cafes that give Barcelona its reputation. A stone’s throw away from Las Ramblas with its numerous shops and 400m from the coast, it is difficult to find a better location in Barcelona.
