The Building – A Modernist Icon
At the heart of the modernist city, the building that houses this extraordinary property is a modernist icon and a dream come true for architecture buffs with a soft spot for modernista. From the floral sgraffito façade, through the wrought-iron balcony rails, to the scale-like glazed tiles and stunning round windows on the dome that crowns and perfectly finishes Casa Estapé – every structural element and original feature of this remarkable building pays tribute to the art and style of Barcelona at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Design – A Luxurious Tribute
Embracing and respecting the unique design of the building, the property’s interior is as spectacular as the outside. With extremely high, top quality coffered ceilings creating an echoing sense of space, a large variety of beautiful hydraulic floors in every room, and large, wooden framed windows and doors with stained glass elements that bring in ample day light, this space makes one pause, to take it all in.
The Property – Flexible Layout and Usability
Even the layout of this property is like no other, occupying the entire “Princpal” floor (1st) of the building. With a total area of 264 built sqm and a 15 sqm terrace facing the inner courtyard, the property is made up of two joint and registered units, one facing the street, with a tourist license, and the other facing the inner courtyard, currently used as an office, though the entire property is built for residential use. The ‘tourist license’ half of the property currently houses an independent 50 sqm apartment, including a living-dining room area with an open kitchen and access to street-front balcony, and a double bedroom and bathroom.
The main living room is a breathtaking space from floor to ceiling, with classic modernist elements and beautiful stained-glass windows. There are 7 more rooms – one facing the street, 3 facing the courtyard, with access to the terrace, and 3 interior rooms, as well as a separate kitchen and 3 bathrooms. Even the gas heating system utilizes beautiful antique radiators and ducted air conditioning.
The Area – The Best the City Has to Offer
Located on Paseo Sant Joan, at the foot of the Arc de Triomf, Casa Estapé is close to the city center and the Ciutadella park, with plenty of services, shops and public transport options in the surrounding area.
