This spectacular Modernista house was constructed in 1902 by the architect Salvador Comas and fully updated and modernised by the current owners over a 4 year period.
It is located in an upmarket town just 40km from Barcelona city and within walking distance of all local amenities. The property is constructed on a large plot of over 3,316 m² and is surrounded by beautifully maintained landscaped gardens with water features and a porch of 32 m² with a barbecue for summer dining.The house is listed as an asset of local interest and is currently operating as an exclusive boutique hotel/guesthouse, restaurant and conference centre.
The property is simply brimming with stunning period features, many crafted by artists and artisans. A number of bronze and marble statues from the Modernista era adorn this historical home, along with stained glass windows, painted frescoes on walls and ceilings, marble floors and solid wooden doors.
The house has 4 floors, with a total built surface area of 1,147 m² and a lift to all levels. We enter this magnificent property via the ground floor where we find a vast 112 m² banquet room with access to the garden, guest bathroom, a 5-car garage, the installations room and an impressive wine cellar with capacity for no less than 2000 bottles.
The first floor offers a large dining room with access to the garden and an annex reception room. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a central work island and the main reception room features a grand oak fireplace. The library also has a fireplace, in this case made of marble, and there is a separate office.
On reaching the second floor we enter a landing area with a beautiful stained glass skylight. This landing leads us to 4 very spacious en-suite bedrooms (34 m² – 57 m²), all with private terraces, some with dressing rooms and one with a private lounge area. From this level of the house there are views over the town and from the second floor, on a clear day, it is possible to see as far as Barcelona. In the spacious loft we find a laundry room and a gym with a bathroom.
Additional features of the property include gasoil underfloor heating and air conditioning, an alarm system, water softener and automatic irrigation in the garden.
A unique chance to acquire an impeccably maintained Modernista mansion for families or for someone looking to run a boutique hotel business.
