Fabulous neoclassical style country house, originally built in 1827 is considered one of the most outstanding properties in the region, located in the center of the sought after town of Alella, 15km from Barcelona on the Maresme coast.
Exquisitely restored by its current owners, the 6 bedroom home boasts over 1,000m2 of constructed area and is set amidst beautiful Mediterranean gardens with far reaching views of the surrounding vineyards and the Mediterranean Sea. The large plot of 9,070m2 is set on several different terraces and includes an award winning 1930's rose garden, numerous fruit trees, an orchard and a stunning Provençal style swimming pool amidst mature olive trees.
Originally built as a summer home for a prominent Catalan merchant family, this idyllic house is one of Alella's most important historic properties. The restoration project, completed in 2017, was completed to the highest specifications and great care was taken to ensure that the home lost none of its authentic charm and beauty. The home is replete with original features, including its spectacular Catalan vaulted ceilings, an ornate water tank directly in front of the home, old olive and wine presses on the first floor and the original wrought iron gates at the main entrance.
The house is built on three levels and includes 2 kitchens, several generously sized reception rooms (the main room on the first floor measures over 135m2) and a total of 6 spacious en-suite bedrooms. Architecturally, one of the key features of the property are the two beautiful porticoed terraces that extend from the front to the rear of the building on each wing of the first floor, offering exceptional views of the town, the coast and the surrounding vineyards. .
The extensive grounds have been meticulously landscaped and great effort has been made to preserve as much of the original landscape architecture as possible. There are several shaded seating areas for outdoor dining, a lovely bar area, a beautiful swimming pool with covered terrace and ample storage space for garden furniture and machinery. There is also ample guest parking next to the second entrance to the home.
This is one of the best properties in the region and a rare opportunity to acquire a country house in a privileged area of the province of Barcelona, very close to the city (17 km) and the coast (2.5 km).
