El Born, known as the SoHo of Barcelona, is the city’s hippest location. Chock-full of independent boutiques showcasing Barcelona’s brightest young designers, funky eateries and historic buildings hosting cosmopolitan bars and clubs, there’s always something new to discover amongst El Born’s labyrinth of streets.
Built size: 165m2
Located on a quiet, pedestrianised street overlooking the impressive Mercat del Born – the largest covered square in Europe and home to the ruins of medieval Barcelona – this beautiful apartment is also just 10 minutes walk from the beach and 100m from the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella.
The apartment has been recently renovated to achieve a calm, natural space with contemporary finishes, such as polished concrete floors, exposed brickwork, natural wood fittings and two interior patios, all of which complement the “shabby-chic” touches, such as the exposed beams running throughout the living room and bedrooms. French windows offer great views of the historic Born Market and the spacious open-plan living/dining area leads on to a 50m2 light-filled terrace giving a sense of space and openness rarely found the middle of the city.
Another interesting feature is that the owner is offering both this and the neighbouring sister apartment for just €1,980,000. Both units can be opened up to make one huge 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom apartment of 330m2 plus 100m2 terrace and 3 inner patios. A wonderful opportunity in one of the world’s most talked about city centres.
