Beautiful aerial view
Living in the heart of the city of Valencia, Spain, comes with cultural perks and landmark views.

Set on the Mediterranean Sea, the busy port of Valencia, Spain, has a lively historic center.

This newly renovated flat is in the heart of the city next to the town hall with its iconic clock tower and baroque features, the art nouveau Estación del Norte railway station and other landmark buildings. The walkable area is filled with restaurants, bars and shops.

Reconfigured from the original layout, the apartment provides 270 square meters, or about 2,900 square feet, of contemporary living space in a vintage building.

On full view from the corner unit’s two balconies is the Neoclassical-style Plaza de Toros de Valencia, a 48-sided coliseum built for viewing bull fights. The main living area, which faces the street, has tall glass doors and windows that bring in abundant natural light.

The residence was recently reimagined and enhanced to offer a singular, white-clad interior. (INMOBILIARIA RIMONTGO)

The white-walled interiors include an open-concept great room, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. A sleek kitchen with white cabinets and counters sits off the dining area, which can accommodate a table for 10. The long center island contains a cooktop and a sink.

Light-toned wide-plank floors and high ceilings with beams carry throughout the flat.

Quality building materials and the latest in smart-home technology have been integrated into every inch of the home. (INMOBILIARIA RIMONTGO)

The building offers concierge service and has two elevators. Public transportation is nearby.

David Tornero of Inmobiliaria Rimontgo is the listing agent for the property, which is listed at 1.1 million euros or about US $1.18 million.

The cost of living in Valencia is less than in the United States, according to For example, one can expect to pay 3 euros (about $3) for a beer, 2 euros or dollars for a cappuccino and less than 1 for a loaf of fresh bread.
