This property from the seventeenth century is in the town of Colonia Güell. It was used by Eusebi Güell, Conde de Güell during a period that was particularly productive for the architect Antoni Gaudí. Original elements, both architectural and decorative, by Gaudí can be found inside the house.
Parabolic arches, mosaics and light fittings are some of the details that sit together with features like Catalan vault ceilings, the same as those that were used in the design and execution of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona for which the crypt of this town served as a testing area.
The layout of the rooms and their design perfectly complement the noble title of its owner and are worthy of a mansion. Rooms are large with high ceilings, big windows and fine materials, making this a truly exclusive piece that is worthy of its listing as a Bien Artístico y Cultural.
This property is the perfect place to let your imagination run wild and think about a project that will mean you can use this country house and the area surrounding it to their full potential. We only have to think of the number of bedrooms in this house, the stables, the old barn, the church next door, the spaces on the ground floor currently used as separate family homes and the large garden with its swimming pool.
Colonia Güell is in itself a town with industrial origins that stands out because of the condition it is in.
The fact that Colonia Güell was built to create properties and services for workers who worked in the old textile factory and the fact Antoni Gaudí participated in the design and the construction of its most significant buildings means that this town is now popular with tourists who are channelled through the Crypt and its Welcome Centre. An important number of people visit each year, enjoying the tranquillity this place offers and the charm of travelling back in time to a society that is far from the one that we currently live in and many wish to keep this kind of community going forever, living in the town.
It is well serviced by transport links since there is a train station, bus lines with buses to nearby towns passing frequently, schools, sports centres and natural spaces, meaning that all kinds of basic needs are satisfied.
This is a really luxurious opportunity, just 20 minutes from Barcelona.
