Good Wednesday morning! A stunning Spanish mansion circa 1931, built in the style of Gaudí, with artisan-crafted tilework, in need of restoration.
This mansion is very intriguing. After remaining in the same family from the 1930s to the 1990s and falling into some disrepair, this impressive palacete was put on the market, finally selling in the early 2000’s to a buyer who restored it largely to working order. It was put on the market again in the early 2010s, from what I can tell, with no buyer yet.
The house is massive in scale, with all kinds of amenities including swimming pools and a tennis court. It’s likely that the building requires significant work to restore it to perfect condition. The listing makes it clear that price is negotiable. Such a beautiful structure – I hope someone can save it!
