Magnificent luxury home for sale in Alella, Barcelona

  • Bedrooms 6
  • Bathrooms 6
  • Size 1,050m²
  • Plot size 9,070m²

Exquisite 6-bedroom country house on a large plot of over 9070m2 in the centre of the sought-after village of Alella on the Maresme Coast

Originally constructed in 1827 and, without question, one of the standout properties in the region, this magnificant neoclassical style country home is located just a stone's throw from centre of the sought-after town of Alella, 15km from Barcelona on the Maresme Coast.

Exquisitely restored by its current owners, the 6-bedroom property boasts over 1.000m2 of constructed area and sits amidst beautifully landscaped Mediterranean gardens with far reaching views across the surrounding vineyards and to the Mediterranean Sea.  The large, 9.070m2 plot is set across various different terraces and includes an award winning rose garden from the 1930s, numerous fruits trees, a kitchen garden and a stunning Provençal-style swimming pool sat amongst mature olive trees.  

Originally constructed as a summer house for an prominent Catalan merchant family, this idyllic home is one of Alella's most important historical properties. The restoration project, finished in 2017, was completed to the very highest specifications and great care was taken to ensure that the home lost none of its authentic charm and beauty. The property is packed with original features, including its spectacular Catalan vaulted ceilings, an ornate water deposit immediately in front of the property, ancient olive and wine presses on the ground floor and the original wrought iron gates at the main entrance. 

The home is built across three levels and includes 2 kitchens, several generous sized reception rooms (the main ground floor living room measures over 135m2) and a total of 6 spacious en-suite bedrooms. From an architectural point of view, one of the key features of the property are the two beautiful porticoed terraces that extend from the front to rear of the building on each first floor wing, offering exceptional views across the town, the coast and the surrounding vineyards. 

The extensive grounds have been meticulously designed and great effort has been taken to preserve as much of the original landscape architecture as possible. There are several shaded seating areas for outdoor dining, a beautiful bar area, a lovely swimming pool with covered terrace and extensive storage for garden furniture and machinery. There is also ample guest parking by the second entrance to the property. 

This is one of the region's finest properties and a rare opportunity to acquire a country home in a prime area of Barcelona province within such close proximity to the city (17km) and the coast (2,5km).
