Buy a penthouse in Barcelona

Barcelona is characterised by its spacious apartment blocks with all the luxury and design features and amenities. For those who want to go a step further, the Catalonian capital also offers completely refurbished penthouses with original features such as exposed beams or mouldings, spacious designer apartments with terraces and pools, charming lofts and art studios… And the best thing: the incredible views of the Mediterranean sea and the Montjuïc and Collserola mountains that can be seen from the city’s skyline. Buy a penthouse in Barcelona considering that it is a big investment for young entrepreneurs, professionals and executives who are looking for something different in the city.

Penthouses in Barcelona: neighbourhoods where you can find them

In reality, those looking for penthouses for sale in Barcelona can find them in practically all the city’s neighbourhoods, as many apartment blocks house this residential solution on their top floor. This way, buyers who are willing to make a bigger investment than that of an apartment or flat can choose this option, which is available in almost every part of Barcelona.

There is no doubt that the penthouses in Barcelona open up an interesting alternative for those buyers who love the historic centre or the nerve centre of the city. Even though the amenities of the properties in these areas are limited by their size and unitary design, the top floor is usually a way around this. For example, if you are considering to buy a penthouse in Barcelona you will like to know that the penthouses in Eixample enjoy an unparalleled reputation when it comes to the city.

On the other hand, the Gothic Quarter also has plenty to add to the list of penthouses for sale in Barcelona. Although it is a neighbourhood that is becoming increasingly tourist-oriented, the upper floors manage to escape this trend and are chosen by people looking for properties with a unique quality and those who love being in the heart of the oldest part of the city. And the same thing happens with other neighbourhoods; they all have their own personality, such as the spirit of revival in Poblenou or the seafaring soul of La Barceloneta.

If you own a car, the decision to buy a penthouse in Barcelona usually goes hand in hand with obtaining a parking space in a garage or on the street. Many apartment blocks have their own underground parking facilities or have nearby parking spaces. In any case, Barcelona’s excellent transport network (metro, train, tram, bus) makes living in a penthouse possible even for those who decide to forego a personal vehicle.

Penthouses for sale in Barcelona: why they are unique

The penthouses in Barcelona usually stand out as they are much more spacious than other properties in the same block or area. Sometimes, they take up the whole upper floor or the majority of it, and so they are ideal for those with larger space requirements. Moreover, in many cases they are properties that have been renovated or which may be renovated in the future, which is a bonus.

On another note, they tend to have a terrace, which usually means spectacular views of the neighbourhood, the sea, the mountains or the Barcelona skyline. The sunrise and sunset on the horizon and the surrounding rooftops are well worth the price of the property.
