One of the most popular areas of Barcelona, the Eixample (or “Ensanche” in Spanish) district, is restoring its former grandeur. The recovery of the Spanish economy has reactivated the real estate market of Barcelona, the reason why the Eixample returns to be to the investors one of the most attractive zones of the Catalan capital. In its streets, especially in the so-called "Golden Square", are located most of the modernist buildings of Barcelon, as well as a large number of emblematic shops, restaurants and fashionable places that look like luxury shops, museums and galleries of contemporary art.
According to the city planners of the city, the Eixample is one of the neighborhoods of Barcelona that best combines three basic and essential life components: work, leisure and housing. Real estate agencies in Barcelona point out that the price of real estate in the right part of the Ensanche increased by 12% last year, and its mix of modernist buildings, proximity to the city's most famous symbols and its wide offer, made it a popular place for foreign investors, 60% of whom are citizens of Europe and the 40% are citizens of other countries.
"The Ensanche experienced a decline in the demand for luxury properties in Barcelona during the most difficult years of the economic crisis," say experts, but "at the moment it is one of the areas with the highest demand for luxury properties in the Catalan capital." For example, the luxury apartments in Eixample are the most sought after among other types of housing, and buyers choose this area because, according to them, "all that implies the concept of "living in Barcelona” can be found here in an area of just two kilometers".
Moreover, according to experts of real estate agencies in Barcelona, "the Ensanche is full of life and rhythm that doesn’t exist in the upper part of the Catalan capital, in areas such as Pedralbes or Sarria." "Buyers of luxury real estate in Barcelona want to be part of the city, and not to live in the desert," argue real estate experts of Catalan capital.
In addition, this area is the epicenter of the emblematic and important shops of the city. "The Eixample is full of history, magnificent modernist buildings, and natural light, in contrast to other areas of the city," added experts from the Barcelona real estate market.
And we're not talking about the best-known brands of clothing and accessories or large malls. In the Eixample you will find only the most exclusive boutiques and individual shops where a perfect combination of excellent quality and service awaits you.
