A traditional mansion with modern conveniences

The exterior and the views are still extraordinary, but the interior is now entirely different. The property was gutted, stripped down to its original brick, and steel beams inserted to support the original timber. The art deco-coloured glass windows were removed, restored and reinstated. Beautiful hydraulic tile floors were cleaned and put back into parquet flooring. Some stunning original features remain, including a marble and pewter standalone sink in the master en suite that some believe may have been made by or to emulate the work of Gaudi, and an original fireplace that was moved from the living room into the main bedroom and converted from woodburning into gas.

The eight-bedroom house, believed to have been built in 1890, now has four floors and a tower, a guard/guest house and an outdoor kitchen, along with a state-of-the-art indoor kitchen. Further amenities include an infinity pool, gym, sauna, wine cellar and several porches. The interior features a variety of different styles, from the unusual bright green tongue-and-groove kitchen, to the New York loft-style dining room (complete with exposed brick) to the original Spanish architecture installed by Jeroni Granell I Manresa.
