Unique Modernist Furnished Penthouse in Born

A quiet and cozy furnished 3-bedroom apartment located in the trendiest and at the moment most exclusive area in town (right in front the Born Market and the Ciutadella Park). The 1900 modernist building was recently renovated. It has a beautiful marble entrance and our flat is in the 5th floor (yes, there is an elevator). The entire apartment has modernist floor tiles and we painted it all white just a month ago. It comes fully furnished with two double beds, one convertible sofa, all appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, etc.) ... and a hammock. It has gas heating and A/C, and tons of light. It has two double bedrooms and a third one that we use as a closet. The large terrace gets sun all year long; it is perfect for dinners outdoors, it has great views over the Market, Mount Tibidabo and the old city. The balcony on the other side of the flat is ideal for romantic and sunny breakfasts.
The flat is surprisingly quiet. Yet you have plenty of restaurants and bars at your feet, a supermarket right there, the great farmer's market of Santa Catarina 5 minutes by walk, and in 10-15 minutes walk you're at the beach.
It is available from 15th of August till 15th of January.
We are also interested in homeswapping with New York (Brooklyn, Manhattan).

Among many other things, we both love jazz - which is the secret reason why we are going to New York City....
