Barcelona-NYC home exchange: 4-BR penthouse with a large private terrace with sea views

The apartment:
Our home is a light-filled and spacious four-bedroom apartment (1.800 sq. ft. + 800 sq. ft. terrace) built for the Olympic games in 1992. It is accessed through a huge open plan living room and a highly flexible office space. In this floor, there are also two master bedrooms that include a king size bed and another bedroom with two single beds. All rooms have large wardrobes for plenty of storage. The two bathrooms have been recently refurbished and have now a walk-in wet room shower. There is a separate laundry room with washer and dryer machines. There is air conditioning for cooling in this main floor (living room plus all bedrooms). The kitchen is in the second floor by the terrace and it is well equipped and features integrated appliances and a dishwasher.

The terrace:
Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate and, most importantly, lots of sunny days regardless of the season. The large terrace, full of beautiful plants, with views to both the Mediterranean sea and the Tibidabo mountain, allows enjoying pleasant breakfasts in the morning and evening meals outdoors, accompanied by a gentle breeze from the sea during the warm summer nights. The plants’ maintenance requires no work because there is an automatic drip watering system. 

The apartment is located in the Olympic Village of Barcelona, on the top level of a five-floor building, between two parks. The apartment is conveniently situated in less than 3 minutes walking distance from the beach, and within a one-minute walk to the subway station Ciutadella/Vila Olimpica.

Local conveniences:
There is a supermarket, an organic greengrocer, a bakery with a wide variety of freshly-made bread and pastries, and cinemas (10 different movies) in original languages, just within a five-minute walk. 

We are a family of five looking for two months simultaneous home exchange Barcelona-New York City starting July 2018. Dates can be flexible (to some extent).
