LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Leading global marketplace Concierge Auctions is to sell Villa Torres, a
mansion dating from 1912 and designed by one of Barcelona’s most
renowned modernist architects, Jeroni Granell i Manresa (1867-1931),
best known for his designs for the stained glass windows of Barcelona’s
Palau de la Música Catalana. The estate, one of the largest private
plots in the region, was initially listed at €12.5million and will sell
at or above €4.5million on 6 June. Bidding will open on 4 June.
Built to the globally celebrated modernist style for which Barcelona is
known, Villa Torres offers 8,234 square feet (765 square metres) of
living space, including eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Arranged over
four floors, the property includes bright and spacious reception rooms,
cinema room, spa, gym, watch tower, wine cellar, internal lift and a
number of terraces with stunning views over Barcelona and the
Mediterranean sea. The historic property is set within a 10 acre (4
hectare plot), including an infinity pool. It has been recently restored
with all modern amenities, but still benefits from period features
including an original façade and tiling, vaulted ceilings, hydraulic
tiled floors and stained glass windows.
The property is situated in the affluent Sarrià neighbourhood, just 5km
from the city centre of Barcelona. The area is well-known for its period
architecture and natural springs and sits adjacent to the Collserola
Park, the largest metropolitan park in the world – 22 times the size of
New York City’s Central Park. Barcelona–El Prat Airport can be reached
in 20 minutes by car.
