An exceptional luxury property for rent with a historic 14th century defence tower. Located on a large plot in the heart of Alella on the Maresme Coast.

This magnificent luxury property is located in the centre of the exclusive town of Alella on Barcelona's Maresme Coast - just 15km from Barcelona city centre and only 2km from the nearest beach and marina.

Located on a large plot of over 5000m², just a minute's walk from the town centre, the property is a protected building and listed as part of the town's architectural heritage. The earliest records of the property date back as far as the 14th Century when the defence tower was used to warn of impending attacks from marauding pirates. The property underwent a number of changes between the 17th and 19th Centuries before being fully restored but its current owners from 2004. The restoration project was extensive and cleverly combined luxury contemporary finishes with the property's authentic original features. The result of the 3 years project is one of the region's most spectacular properties.

The property comprises the 5-bedroom main house (plus en-suite service bedroom) distributed over three levels, a large garden with swimming pool and barbecue area, a large driveway with ample off-street parking and a private garage for several cars. Although situated just 150m from the town centre, the property enjoys a peaceful location with a high level of privacy.

Amongst the property's many original features we find a large function room with high, vaulted ceiling on the ground floor, the original defence tower, water features in the garden said to have been either influenced or designed by Gaudí, and decorative wooden panelling in the dining room.

There are 5 main bedrooms in the property plus an additional service bedroom on the ground floor. The property is equipped with a lift and there is a Bang and Olufsen sound system integrated throughout the main living areas and bedrooms. Other features include a 4-car garage, a 10.000 litre water deposit, wooden and marble floors, underfloor heating (on the 1st and 2nd floor), a central vacuuming system, air-conditioning and Teknal double glazing.

There is a large outdoor kitchen with a barbecue leading from the main dining room and there are changing rooms and showers located by the swimming pool. The garden also offers numerous shaded seating areas and several water features.

This is unquestionably one of the Maresme coast's most spectacular properties.
