Was designed by Gaietà Buïgas Monravà in 1901, Villa Avelina was commissioned by Bonaventura Blay Milà (1860-1911) after his return from Cuba. The name of this house is in honor of his wife Avelina Mas de Xaxars. After making a fortune he returned to his homeland where he was one of the main shareholders and founders of the society "El Vichy Catalán"

After the death of Bonaventura Blay in 1911, the house was passed to the former mayor of Barcelona Guillem de Boladeras (1853-1928) this is the reason why this house was also known as "Can Boladeras"
