Large and remarkable villa by Antoni Tàpies on Barcelona’s Maresme coast

  • Bedrooms 9
  • Bathrooms 8
  • Size 893m²
  • Plot size 3,125m²

Magnificent villa in the centre of tiana. Completely restored inside and out to its original 1850s neoclassical and Italian renaissance style.

This historical landmark has the unique creative stamp of Renowned Catalan contemporary artist Antoni Tàpies, and at its heart is a fabulous domed sitting room with wonderfully ornate original plasterwork.

This leads off into more grand spaces rich with spectacular wood, marble and mosaic finishes, and a lovely original staircase connecting the three floors.

Bespoke features include American Pine beams and carpentry, oak flooring and manual hydraulic tiles, and Brazilian, Italian and Indian green marble. There are paintings and frescoes restored in 2013-2014 by Carla Alpañez and even a 24-carat gold bath.

Other highlights include the master bedroom with terrace and sea views, a further living room with spectacular fireplace and huge dining room with space for 26 people. This room is a perfect example of the stunning detail of the no-compromise restoration, using American pine, teak, mahogany and maple with meticulous painting in mother-of-pearl white and nacre.

The feeling of space and opulence continues throughout this uniquely amazing property, from vast wine storage room to the top-floor home cinema and onto the roof, where you can enjoy 360º views of the mountains and the sea.

There are plenty of modern luxuries to match comfort with cultural heritage including a fantastic industrial kitchen and integrated hot and cold air conditioning. The 4-person guest/service area has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a living/kitchen area, and here is a service bell system in all rooms.

Outside, walled gardens lead down from open terraces with balustrades to a lovely open pool area. An automatic sprinkler and drip irrigation system make maintenance easy and keep everything looking perfect.

Location

Tiana is a 20-minute drive from the centre of Barcelona, just to the north of the city where the picturesque Maresme coast begins.

The house is in a private and secluded spot very in the middle of Tiana, overlooking the countryside, mountains and the sea, with the nearest beaches less than 10 minutes away.

This is a great spot for accessing the Catalan capital while living a more rural Mediterranean lifestyle, and is well positioned to enjoy the wonders of the Costa Brava just up the coast.

This is a very popular area with international families looking to combine the expat lifestyle and good international schools with authentic Catalan living. Barcelona airport is just 20 minutes away, with the alternative Girona airport less than an hour up the motorway.
