Gaudí-era Barcelona Pad is Appropriately, Ridiculously Ornate

New, 1 comment


Here's a property in the center of Barcelona that the brokerbabble calls "one of the most impressive and exclusive buildings in the area," and, considering the amount of stucco work and tile details, it seems that statement is actually not much in the way of hyperbole. Built in 1906 (the year architect Antoni Gaudí finished up his Casa Batlló, as the listing is keen to point out), the 7,535-square-foot five-bedroom has been "thoroughly restored," from the "sunlit lounge terrace" to the wood-paneled library to the closet that's filled—filled!—with crystal goblets and silver tea sets. While the listing is "price upon request," the brokers say the owners ask "€12M to €15M," or roughly $16M to $20M. · Property on Paseo de Gracia, Barcelona, Spain [Sothebys via Homes of the Rich]
