Exceptional restored 16th century Catalan masia, on a large plot with pool and terraces, with an additional 14,000 m² of natural parkland.

Masía Can Bruy is located in the town of Alella, one of the most charming winemaking villages of the Maresme, 15 minutes by car from the centre of Barcelona, 30 minutes from El Prat Airport and 5 minutes from a reputable international school.

This 12,500 m² estate with an additional 14,000 m² of natural parkland, is located just 15 minutes' walk from the town centre, in a natural setting surrounded by forests, fields and with spectacular sea views. It is the ideal place to enjoy the privacy and tranquillity that the surroundings offer. It enjoys an unbeatable southeast orientation that makes it very sunny and with pleasant temperatures throughout the year.

The plot is divided into different zones. On one side, in front of the main house there is a terrace area with a gazebo and barbecue overlooking the sea, which offers a summer dining space from where you can access the pool area with natural grass surroundings and changing rooms with a sauna and jacuzzi. Two very spacious multipurpose rooms and a private garage with storage space complete this area.

On the other, we find a second area with a padel tennis court, fruit trees, garden areas, a vegetable garden and private water well and pond. In front of the main building there is a wooded area with trees that are native to this part of the country.

The estate has 3 direct access points leading to the 3 buildings that are differentiated and attached to each other, distributed over 3 floors and with sloping gable roof. These 3 sections are the main house, a secondary house and several annexes. In total, 636 m² and 264 m² of sports facilities (pool and padel tennis).

We access the main house via a door, where we find a wide entrance hall. On the right there is a large living room that connects to a toilet and the kitchen via a hall. Three adjoining living rooms to the left of the entrance complete this floor.

From the hall, stairs lead to the first floor. As soon as we go up, we find ourselves facing a bedroom with a private bathroom. On the left, a landing leads to a bedroom with a dressing room and a bathroom with an adjoining room that could be used as an office. The right part of the floor consists of another bedroom with a private bathroom and 2 bedrooms that share a bathroom, one of them with a dressing room. The attic floor consists of another bedroom and a small bathroom.

This house is equipped with air conditioning, heating and double-glazed windows to ensure your comfort at any time of the year.

The secondary house, currently designed as a staff house, is attached to the main house and has an independent entrance. It offers 2 bedrooms, a living room with a kitchen and a complete bathroom. It would be possible to merge the main house and the staff accommodation in order to great a single, larger home.

The house is listed and protected by the Catalogue of Architectural Heritage of Alella, and still has the original sundial dating from 1807 on its main façade.

According to local planning regulations the property is for private use only. Commerical activity (such as a hotel or restaurant) is not permitted.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a country house on a large plot with sea views close to the centre of one of Catalunya's most sought-after towns, just 15km from Barcelona city.
