Hacienda Barcelona, a 1926 Mission-Style historic home, has been totally renovated and expanded into an exquisite 4 bedroom, 4 bath private oasis with lush tropical gardens, elegant loggia, private salt-water pool and hot tub. The brand-new kitchen with expansive granite island is open to a huge family room with wall of French doors with panoramic views of the loggia and pool. One wall of the family room is an elegant wet bar with full-sized ice machine to ensure you never run out of ice for your cool tropical beverages. Three of four bedrooms open onto the loggia and pool and each has plentiful closet space. The master bedroom has soaring 20 foot ceilings and a marble bath with step-in glass shower and private WC. Another bedroom/den also has a 20 foot ceiling, plantation shutters over giant windows and an original 1926 tongue in groove cypress ceiling. In addition there is a formal living room with gas fireplace, dining room adjacent to the kitchen and large laundry and storage room. The circular Chicago brick driveway provides convenient off-street parking. Broadband WiFi is accessible throughout the house.
The El Cid neighborhood, established in the 1920's on the site of a former pineapple plantation, hugs the Intracoastal waterway less than a mile from the restaurants and clubs of downtown West Palm Beach. The neighborhood is filled with majestic mature palms and gorgeous well-maintained historic homes, many of the Mediterranean Revival and Mission styles. Only one block from Hacienda Barcelona you will stroll past the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden on your way to the breathtaking Intracoastal waterway and it's spectacular bike and walking path.
Hacienda Barcelona is only minutes from Palm Beach International Airport, downtown West Palm Beach, CityCenter (an outdoor urban mall with movie theaters, restaurants and high-end shops), and The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Whether you are looking for the farmer's market, a diversity of restaurants, nightclubs, movie theaters or shopping, it is right there. It's also a short drive or bike to the shopping, restaurants, beaches and glamour of Palm Beach, including the iconic Breakers resort. The Palm Beach public beach is a mile away and provides access to the azure waters and gentle waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can take a short 3 block walk to a brand-new Publix grocery store (scheduled to open in February 2016) and a quick 10-minute drive to the new Palm Beach Outlet Mall and Whole Foods.
