Located in the National Park of the Collserolla hills there’s not one single room in this impressive Modernista house in Barcelona’s prestigious Sarrià district that doesn’t offer spectacular views. The most emblematic of the property’s eight ensuite bedrooms was regularly used by Montserrat Caballé when she felt blue. A good friend of the previous owner, she would stand on its wraparound balcony and sing her heart out to the city. It is also believed that Catalan president Lluís Campanys lived in the house for a year during the Spanish Civil War, and hid here when the Falange did their house-to-house searches.
The house, known as Villa Paula, was designed by the renowned architect Jerome Granell i Manresa in 1912. It is a listed building with a degree of protection that involves keeping the original façade and the unique architectural elements of the building.
The house has been exquisitely renovated to a very high standard whilst maintaining many of its original features, including marble and mosaic tile flooring, high ceilings with mouldings and beautiful stained glass windows.
The property is set on a large plot of 41,000m², making it one of the largest privately-owned plots in Barcelona. It boasts fantastic terraces and gardens with a stunning infinity pool, currently under construction, and breathtaking city and sea views.
