Downtown Designer Loft with TERRACE

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer de Montserrat, Barcelona, Catalonia 08001, Spain

The Space

Spacious loft-style apartment with beautiful private terrace just off the Ramblas in Barcelona’s historic centre. Completely remodeled in 2005 by architect owner (me:) with a modern open-plan design using sliding panels and curtains to separate spaces, whilst retaining some original features such as the timber beams and windows.

I have put much love and care into this apartment which has been my main home for 7 years, and I am happy for others to enjoy it so long as they are quiet and respectful. Not for party groups! Although it is possible to sleep up to 6 people it is more suitable for 2 to 4 due to the open plan. Also note - 4th floor with no elevator.

TERRACE: 15m2 with timber deck floor, large table and chairs, outdoor cooking facilities - sink and gas cooker. Shelter from sun or rain with a remote controlled awning.

KITCHEN: fully equipped with electric (vitro-ceramic) cooker and oven, microwave, dishwasher, stainless steel refrigerator and a bar with 4 barstools.

LIVING AREA with comfy sofa, two lounge chairs, coffee table,TV, music system.

DINING AREA with table and chairs for 6 people, SOFA converts to double BED (200 x 160cm) which can be curtained off.

BATH: large bathtub which can be opened to the living area if desired, and the “inner” bathroom (with normal door) has a shower, toilet and bidet.

BEDROOM 1: spacious room with balcony to the street, large double bed (200 x 160 cm)

DRESSING ROOM: Walk-through to bedroom 1, separated by curtains, you will have plenty of space for clothes.

BEDROOM 2 / STUDY: With desk area and double bed (190 x 150 cm). Can be opened up to the main bedroom or closed by transluscent sliding panels plus thick curtains. Has a window to the street with views to the Ramblas.

The apartment is 50 metres off the Ramblas, on the edge of the cosmopolitan and happening “Raval” neighborhood of the Old Town. It (email hidden)ly area especially at night with plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs within a few minutes walk. There is no ambient noise from trafic or music but you may hear the street-life on some nights!

Most of Barcelona's major sights are within easy walking distance - 2mins Palau Guell, 4 mins Liceu Opera house, 7 mins Boqueria market... The Old Port is right on the doorstep and a pleasant stroll along it will take you to the city’s main beach in 15 minutes.

  • Very nice place, fully equipped with all you need. Large enough for 5 people, modern design and a perfect host. Kim gave us detailed information prior to arrival and explained everything very precise.
    It's perfect to be downtown, only a minute from the Ramblas-the downside is the noise in the streets until 4am.

  • Amazing loft apartment in the centre of all the action! Kim was very gracious and there to greet us ( 2 adults and 3 kids) upon our arrival. The apartment was super clean, very well equipped in a great location. The terrace was a real +++ with children. Great to have a big outdoor space to eat meals and enjoy the skyline of Barcelona. Thank you Kim for a great stay! Hope to be back soon.
