Barcelona's luxury homes with views are booming

Show light - BARNES Agency, luxury real estate in Barcelona

The pandemic hasn’t changed our behavior and consumption habits, but the way we perceive our home as well. Since the beginning of the confinement and the increment of home-office, we started looking for larger spaces with a garden, terrace, or balcony to stay in touch with the outside world.

In a city like Barcelona, where we can find a myriad of mountain and beach landscapes, a house with panoramic views is one of the most sought-after. National and international clients expect properties from which they can observe the main tourist attractions such as Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral, Casa Batlló, and Tibidabo. In fact, the views can actually boost the value of a high-standing property by up to 30 percent.

Today, on the BARNES Barcelona blog, we explain what luxury homes with the best views of Barcelona are like and where you can find them.

Where can you find Barcelona’s luxury homes with views of the city?

You can find wonderful and privileged viewpoints in the neighborhoods farthest from the center, some of which are more popular, while others are more unknown. We’ll like to highlight some of them: El Carmel, located at the top of a mountain 265 meters above sea level; Sarrià I Sant Gervasi, about 135 meters above sea level; and the Putxet, 135 meters high on the homonymous mountain.

If you’re looking to live in the city center, you can enjoy the facade of Casa Batlló and the impressive architecture of the neighboring buildings from an apartment on Passeig de Gracia. You can find luxurious penthouses with views of the most central areas of the city in La Dreta de l'Eixample. Moreover, you'll be able to see Gran Vía, Tibidabo and so much more your apartment’s windows and balcony.

What is the most sought-after home in Barcelona's high-end market?

Usually, the most sought-after homes have a surface area of 150 m2, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and outdoor spaces. Furthermore, to find the perfect home, the safety and tranquility of the neighborhood, as well as the proximity to schools, shops, parks, and sports areas, are important features in finding the ideal residence.

While there are typically fewer properties that are not restored, you shouldn’t rule out a purchase of this kind, you can buy a house for a lower price and remodel it according to your tastes and preferences.
