  • Size 673m²
  • Plot size 3,256m²

Catalan farmhouse by Francesc Berenguer i Mestres, for sale in the El Poal residential area, with spectacular sea views.

This is a landmark property in one of the most prestigious communities on the Barcelona coast. It is set at the highest point of the Poal Valley in the rolling hills of the Garraf Natural Park with beautiful views of the lush countryside and glittering Mediterranean.

The house dates from the late 19th Century and is a modernist marvel by the distinguished master of works Francesc Berenguer i Mestres, intimate friend of Antoni Gaudí. He also collaborated on projects including the Parc Güell sample house where Gaudí himself lived between 1906 and 1925.

The exterior of the farmhouse is stunning, with a breathtaking tower, beige stone façade and roughly worked white stone elements. There is a wealth of very special details inside and out, including a feature modernist window, funicular arches and a fountain.

The house combines a rich history with all the trappings of modern family living, with the garden, pool, barbecue area and stone oven perfect for entertaining or relaxing while enjoying the fabulous views and close proximity to nature.

The gate opens onto a large and welcoming parking area, but your attention is firmly taken by the house with its stunning façade and tower, its perfect position, the garden with terrace and pool and of course those panoramic sea views.

The entrance hall and lobby welcome you with an amazing modernist window and two funicular arches, and lead on through the house to a back yard with a central fountain and barbecue area with stone oven. Behind the house there's nothing but natural parkland and rolling hills.

The lobby leads to a large dining room with magnificent views of the pool and sea, as well as a bright living room with marble fireplace and a large kitchen-office with access to the terrace and garden. This floor also has a large bathroom, service units and a laundry area.

The first floor has four bedrooms including a fully independent master suite with small balcony, complete bathroom, office and spectacular stone fireplace.

The master suite also has access to the tower, complete with a games room featuring African decorative details and a beautiful attic with low-covered wooden roof. This level also has access to the rear terrace overlooking old stables and the hills.

Downstairs there is a large double-height cellar and the property also has space for security guards. Outside, there's a fruit tree orchard and a large area of land with 7b rating (green and protected, classified as undeveloped) bordering the El Garraf Natural Park.

Location

This is the highest point of the Barrio del Poal, a lovely community nestling in the hills overlooking Garraf and the expanse of golden sandy beaches just to the south of Barcelona.

This is a popular area with overseas families who enjoy the perfect climate, outdoor lifestyle and close proximity to excellent international schools including the Bon Soleil and the British School of Barcelona.

This location has easy access to Garraf, Castelldefels and Sitges to the south, while the centre of Barcelona is just 25 minutes away in the car. The local bus service is a short walk from the house, it takes just 3 minutes to drive to the beach and only 10 minutes to the airport.
