Located in Cardedeu, only 30 minutes from Barcelona and nestled between the Montseny and Montnegre Natural Parks in the heart of the Catalan countryside, is Can Morató, a magnificent 6 bedroom Barcelona country estate with equestrian facilities set in 6 hectares of flat land. The estate offers spacious family living and an idyllic rural lifestyle with beautifully landscaped gardens, pastures and superb equestrian facilities. The property is a true treasure for lovers of history, architecture, nature and horses.
Dating back to 1048, this catalogued masia is steeped in history and saw Napoleon’s troops battling on its doorstep. The Battle of Cardedeu was immortalised by the prestigious French engraver JC Langlois in a work that is currently in the Louvre Museum and where we can contemplate the discreet presence in the scene of Can Morató: a magnificent ceramic depiction of this work of art hangs in the grand entrance hall.
The fabric of the property is made up of a splendid stone facade and thick stone walls, together with terracotta flooring, beautiful wooden ceiling beams, hand made wrought iron window adornings and bespoke carpentry and ironworks throughout. It has large square rooms and is built over two floors with excellent connectivity between the spaces. The stone with which the house is built is exposed in the windows and door frames. Window seats are an architectural feature of this property; they are both romantic and deeply practical, a place to sit but also a place to stare dreamily out the window enjoying the magnificent views over the grounds of the estate.
Retaining a solid structure, the interior was fully refurbished in 1970 to offer a superb layout whilst respecting and protecting the historic, artistic and spirit of the original architecture of the masia. The renovation was carried out under the instruction of the famous architect Lluis Bonet i Garí, the main disciple of Antóni Gaudi and successor in the construction of the Sagrada Familia.
