Spacious, heterogeneous duplex (350 m2) in the heart of Barcelona

Hi! We live in a spacious, 350m2 duplex (including the top floor with therrace) in the heart of Gothic neighborhood in Barcelona, within the historic roman perimeter. The house is divided in two flats connected by a staircase, both flats connecting separately also to the building elevator. The decoration is very heterogeneous, as a result of how we have worked on different areas at different periods of our life, resulting in an astonishing combination of atmospheres that we hope you will enjoy. There are two double bedrooms and two bathrooms in each floor, as well as separate fully equipped kitchens, as you'll see in the pictures attached. Please note that we can close the internal staircase dividing the two apartments, allowing us to offer only the entire house or, if your group is not that large, only the upstairs flat or the downstairs flat and still offering complete privacy, giving us a lot of flexibility in arranging both simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges.

Lifestyle

We are a family with a lot of plans but short time to do them because we haven’t flexible timetable. We live really in downtown, next to Las Ramblas and close to the sea. We can go walking to most part of museums, theatres, the opera, … and we try to profit them as much possible during the week. At weekend we use to go to a country house in Costa Brava, to the north coast near France, if I’m not going to do mountain sky.
