Exclusive modernist penthouse in Casa Burés
EXCLUSIVE PENTHOUSE IN THE DRETA OF EIXAMPLE, IN A MODERNIST FINCA CASA BURÉS
BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HomeServices LARVIA, a consultancy specialising in the marketing of exclusive properties in the best areas of Barcelona, offers this fantastic 221sq m duplex apartment in a newly refurbished building with top quality materials, located in the emblematic Casa Burés building, in one of the best streets of the Dreta del Eixample.
221 m² duplex apartment located in Casa Burés, one of the most impressive properties in Barcelona's Eixample, completely refurbished.
This 221sq m duplex penthouse is located on the fourth floor of the building and is achieved by recovering the old roof terraces of the building. Something that makes this property a unique touch.
On the first floor we find on one side the day area composed by a kitchen open to a spacious living-dining room with southeast orientation. The night area is made up of a bedroom and a complete bathroom and a second circular bedroom which is made up of a master suite that houses a bathroom, a dressing room and some beautiful stairs that go up to a first floor that leads to a majestic circular work area that would form part of the upper part of one of the towers of the estate.
The new architectural design maintains the most outstanding elements, such as the sloping ceilings and balustrades, and incorporates skylights that bring light and originality to the space.
A very modern interior design, with neutral tones and soft lines inspired by nature, allows you to comfortably enjoy the sun, the views and all the typical terraces of Barcelona's Eixample.
Care has also been taken with the spacious communal areas open only to the owners, consisting of two common areas, the ground floor and the upper terraces, which allow residents to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The ground floor includes an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, home cinema, wine cellar and a work area, as well as a professional kitchen with dining room, ideal for celebrations with large groups of friends. The upper terrace offers an outdoor swimming pool. In addition, a storage room is included in the price for each of the flats.
The Burés house was built between 1900 and 1905 on behalf of Francesc Burés, owner of one of the most important textile companies in late 19th century Spain, and was initially intended to house his company headquarters on the ground floor, the 1,000 m² family residence on the main floor, and 12 rented flats of 300 m² each. One of the first lifts in the city was installed in the building to facilitate access to the upper floors.
After a period of neglect, Casa Burés has been restored from its foundations to its original splendour. In the process, each and every one of its original elements has been conserved and recovered by expert craftsmen under the control of the Catalan Heritage Department, given that it is a listed building. The aim was to recover the past, maintaining the glass windows, the hydraulic floors, the mouldings on the ceilings, each door and each window, achieving a spectacular result that takes us back a century to the origins of Modernism.
On the other hand, with the refurbishment, the interior design with soft lines and neutral tones has managed to bring the spaces into the 21st century without losing their original essence, allowing natural light to enter all the spaces of the property.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a modernist jewel of great heritage value. At the same time it offers great comfort and convenience with a luxury service and exclusive communal areas.
Casa Burés is excellently located in the Eixample district on the corner of Girona and Ausias March streets, between Paseo de Gracia and the recently remodelled Paseo de Sant Joan. Just a few minutes walk from the Palau de la Música Catalana, Las Ramblas and the Mercat de La Boqueria, the Ciutadella park and the charming Born district, the OneOcean Port Vell and the beaches of Barceloneta. Casa Burés is ideally located to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle of Barcelona.
