Villa Josefina is a mansion designed by the architect Josep María Martino Arroyo in 1921 and completed two years later. Located in the exclusive Terramar residential area of Sitges, this architect was one of the artists who best symbolized the architectural trend of Catalan Noucentisme in this famous coastal town.
The mansion brings together the essential characteristics of this movement that sought to return to the essence of classical architecture after Modernism. This trend did not defend a unitary style, but it did defend a common goal in defence of rigor, order, balance, weighting and simplicity.
For this reason, the architectural Noucentisme was more of a concept than a style. A style that is perfectly represented in this work of art that shows an aesthetic and composition based on classical elements, such as the pillars with Ionic capitals, the padding of the façade, the cornices or the balustrades of its terraces.
The house consists of a semi-basement floor with a kitchen, dining room, service bedroom, laundry and ironing area and bathroom, this being a space that formerly served as a granny flat or for a house keeper. The ground floor consists of a hall and three living spaces that run along the façade facing the sea. There is also a main dining room with another living room also facing the sea. along with a living area, a guest toilet with shower, an office and three fireplaces.
The first floor includes six double bedrooms, four of them with access to two terraces with sea views and two complete bathrooms.
The house is finished of by a tower, which houses a room with a bathroom and an exit to the roof of the house with spectacular 360º views.
The house features many the original materials, including the original paved floor, cornices and a large part of the carpentry. The heights and light of each room is impressive and the decoration of the house is most suitable for it's architecture.
The outdoor area is extraordinary, with two entrances, with a garden that surrounds the entire house, with a large extension at the back where there is a large pool, next to a garage for two cars, which can be converted into a living room or a complete room and an attached porch with views of the pool and the rear façade of the house.
