Carpe fucking Diem;
This personal life slogan of the owners, meaning do what you really like, is noted throughout this loft. The house is remodelled to perfection. Designed to enjoy time together with friends and family and a perfect place to entertain guests. A known newspaper mentioned this loft with the title: When bohemian is premium
The moment you walk through the entrance door you fall in love with this unique home. The eclectic style of this loft, which we can describe as Hollywood Regency industrial makes the place even more special and impressive then it already is.
The current owners brilliantly optimised light and space. The majority of the plan is given over to a beautiful open plan kitchen and living room, positioned in a row of three full height windows. The spaces are incredibly bright and have a real sense of volume, accentuated by five-meter high ceilings and huge pillars. The remodelled black coloured kitchen with high-end appliances is positioned behind an island that serves a breakfast bar, with textured granite tops. The industrial heritage and unique features like the elevated ceilings, exposed brick walls, big pillars mixed with beautiful art works throughout add flash and glam to the house.
Next to the kitchen is a small terrace that overlooks the courtyard of the apartment. Past the living room through a wide hall, you enter, still on the same floor, a spacious blue painted dining area accenting its white ornamented elevated ceiling. On the wall a huge image of Michelangelo’s David face together with the other very original custom made art-worked furniture give a bohemian artistic feel to this home. Well-fitted carpets on the black ceramic floor give the spaces this cozy home feeling.
In the other wing of the building, close to the entrance is another spacious living room with a second kitchen and mezzanine bedroom en suite.
The spaces heighten the sense of pure luxury that this unique loft emanates.
The property furthermore boast a range of mod cons such as underfloor heating throughout, air-conditioning in all the bedrooms and office, automatic screens for the full height windows, very fast internet and a sophisticated camera & alarm system.
Size matters, especially in the bedroom
You will be totally flabbergasted as you go downstairs you enter the biggest size master bedroom of Barcelona if not the whole of Spain. Here it seems that normally scarce square meters available in Barcelona do not apply. This master suite covers this entire floor (157 m2!), plus an extended 30m2 private courtyard next to it, as well as an interior patio bringing in lots of light. The Catalan masia style of the arched ceiling, bóveda catalan, with its exposed classical handmade brick stone, toba manual, which Gaudi used a lot in his architecture, adds to the romance. The king-size modern bed with its custom-made velvet headboard makes you feel majestic. A freestanding bath in the middle with its curious shape and messing tap and showerhead, which are repeated in the double shower make the best five star hotels jealous. An oasis of tranquillity.
This must see suite has also a huge dressing room of about 40m2 (now partly used as cinema room) as well as two separate bathrooms.
Office in multipurpose space
The loft has an independent wing next to the local food market, which is now in use a secluded and tranquil office area with again big windows that overlook the patio and the living room of the loft. A little terrace connects with the other main spaces of the loft. . It also contains an open mezzanine bedroom and independent bathroom. The space could also be converted into a good-sized garage for various cars and motorcycles.
