B ARCELONA, S P AI N P RI C E : €3.525 MILLI ON ( $ 5 . 7 3 M)
Positioned at the top of Casa Bures, one of Barcelona’s best preserved buildings in the Catalan Modernist style, this twofloor penthouse apartment offers contemporary living with classic Catalonian style. Constructed between 1900 and 1905, the historic building’s first owner was one of Spain’s most successful textile merchants, Francesc Bures.
Describing the renovation process, broker Liza Kjellberg, of Lucas Fox, calls it nothing short of “amazing.”
The intensive renovation of the century-plus-old building required a 50-person team to spend more than 100,000 hours over the past three years.
The painstaking process required the team to not only remove and restore the original wood beams, but also to renovate tens of thousands of stained glass and mosaic pieces.
Spread over two floors, the approximately 230sq m penthouse includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The recently renovated building offers homeowners a wide range of amenities, including a 20m rooftop pool, access to a spacious communal area with a large kitchen and dining room, their own private wine cellar, a laundry room and a 24m indoor pool.
