One of Barcelona’s top developers has launched a new-build project, offering one to two-bedroom apartments for sale in the city centre. Part of the Sant Gervasi district, the residential area is perfect for families and those seeking a peaceful environment yet close to the city’s central action. Just metres from local supermarkets, restaurants, bars and even banks and hospitals, the properties are perfectly placed to enjoy all the amenities of modern life.
Why is this opportunity so exciting?
Sant Gervasi is a district in high demand with both locals and foreigners and is a big hit with younger crowds and families, yet the area continually has low supply. Properties here then not only tend to get snapped up quickly, they also increase in price over the years. Currently, Sant Gervasi sees property price growth of approximately 5% per year, meaning investors are likely to see significant capital appreciation in the coming years. Plus, with foreigners and families moving here, they provide an ideal opportunity for long-term rentals, often between one to three years.
On top of this, Barcelona is lucky enough to have a hot and sunny climate and while many properties are built with materials that helps keep their insides cool, not many provide outdoor space for owners. Not only does every apartment come with some sort of outdoor space, but Saragossa also boasts a beautiful communal garden, which all owners and inhabitants are free to use - perfect to soak up the sun during warm summer days.
What about the properties?
Dating back to 1953, this building provides an intimate setting for owners of its 13 properties. Large windows allow natural light to fill the interiors in order to make the most of the capital’s sunny days.
On the ground floor, two of the largest two-bedroom apartments for sale in the property have large private terraces, one of 21 sqm and one of 35 sqm. One to two-bedroom apartments occupy the first, second and third floors ranging from 43 sqm to 62 sqm. All enjoy one or two personal balconies. Atop of the building on the fourth floor lie two penthouses of two bedrooms each, boasting 77 sqm and 86 sqm respectively. Best of all, these units can take advantage of warm summer days and views of the city from their private roof terraces.
The apartments are finished to high standards using a Scandinavian inspired design of calm colour schemes of white walls and wooden flooring. They are all equipped with fitted interiors from either Bosch or equivalent brands. Having worked with the City of Barcelona, the developers have insured to ensure a lower carbon footprint and reduced energy consumption for owners by creating a thermally insulated main facade and equipping all windows with double glazing, ideal for when the weather finally does cool down during the winter months.
Why Sant Gervasi?
Despite being one of the biggest districts in Barcelona, Sant Gervasi is also one of the most peaceful thanks to its several residential pods with beautiful buildings and architecture. Situated in the north-western part of the city, the hilly area is home to several parks (Els Jardins del Turó del Putget & Jardins d’Enric Sagnier) which offer stunning panoramic city views and a perfect afternoon out for the family. Further attracting families are the numerous schools in the area, both local and international, as well as day care and nurseries.
The neighbourhood is well serviced by public transport, both buses and metro links (Fontana L3, L6 & L7) enabling you to be in the city centre’s Placa Catalunya within just 10 minutes.
