680m² house / villa for sale in Sant Cugat, Barcelona
This exclusive Renaissance-style country house has, over time, been perfectly integrated into the city. It is a building with an overlap of constructions and building systems, since it combines the ashlar work on the ground floor and part of the first, with the brickwork on the upper floors.
Currently, it is divided into two homes with independent access and connected through the garden and period arches, it features hybrid architecture including typical features of masias of the 18th and 19th centuries. The building has been declared a cultural asset of local interest.
The façade on the street side and in the central courtyard reveal the original limits of the building. It indicates that the original structure of this estate was built during the second half of the 13th century.
