Villa Paula is a fabulous listed Modernista home located on the Carretera de las Aigües in Barcelona in a hilltop setting in the Collserola National Park. The villa sits on a plot of 41,000m2 making it one of the largest privately owned plots in the city.
This eight bedroom, eight bathroom villa (765m2) was designed by the architect Jerome Granell i Manresa in 1912. It has been fully restored maintaining many of the original architectural features including its façade, marble and mosaic tiled floors, high ceilings, stained glass windows, curved staircase and a roof with green Arabic tiles.
The main house is distributed over four floors and a tower. There is a guard/guest house separated from the main house by a corridor and a garage.
The property has been brought up to date with features including terraces, lush gardens, decking and an infinity pool, which is under construction, with spectacular views over Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea.
Barcelona and The Costa Brava.
Barcelona is Spain’s second city and by far it’s most international, perfectly caught between the Mediterranean Sea and the Montserrat Mountains. It’s a business centre, a tourism hub and a classy working city with an easy mix of designer shops and charming, low-key chirunguitos – beach bars.
Modernist Eixample is prime Barcelona, where apartments in high ceilinged buildings built around wide, square courtyards provide a cool respite from the Catalan summer heat. Eixample links the family-friendly residential areas close to the mountains - Turo Park and nearby Sarria for example - with El Born or El Barrio Gotico, the Gothic and Roman Centro Historico close to the sea.
Hop on the AVE high-speed train and the cultured cathedral city of Girona is within 40 minutes. The city is a foodie’s delight with some of Europe’s most acclaimed restaurants. Twenty minutes away PGA Catalunya is an award-winning golf course where cool, contemporary architecture replaces the more predictable Spanish golf villa design.
Head a little further north, still within ninety minutes of Barcelona, and the Costa Brava begins in earnest. From Blanes to Begur this is arguably Spain’s loveliest costa, featuring heavily wooded hills and pine trees dropping down to shaded bays. Prime beaches include Aigua Blava, Sa Tuna and Sa Riera.
