The ethereal spread

Because I’m a time-traveler

Will I like it here?

Yep. You’re in an old building on top of the world. You get lots of sun. There’s central AC. You have a Buddha on the bookshelf and a dream-catcher above your bed.

Really? Tell me more...

You’ll never lose track of time. Three cool clocks hang about the comfy sofa. Your small balcony overlooks a narrow, medieval street. Take a peek.

We think this is ideal for those who live in the now and love visiting the past. You’re in an historical area. Every street offers a unique experience.

Your top 3 reasons to live here:

  • No one lives above you.
  • There’s air conditioning.
  • The decor is old, new, and a little eclectic.

But you need to know this...

  • You’re on the 6th floor. And there's no elevator.

Our Homechecker, Andrea, said:

“I loved this property. It’s bright. It’s in the best area. Every street is like a new universe.”

Give it to me straight...

This is a 6th floor studio on Carrer de la Formatgeria in Barcelona. There isn’t an elevator. The cool decor, cozy space, and balcony are worth every step.

It’s perfect if you love a charismatic space in an old neighborhood. Lose yourself on narrow streets. Discover trendy restaurants and hidden gems.

What we liked the most

  • Benefiting from the absence of neighbors above your head.
  • Cooling off on hot summer days – there’s central AC.
  • Embracing the comfort of home – the studio is full of character.

Things to keep in mind

  • You’ll need to walk up 6 flights of stairs – how medieval.
