This is a wonderful opportunity to buy a gorgeous traditional property in great condition, in an idyllic location and with solid income potential, all at a great price (original price €600,000).

The current owner has run a successful holiday rental business here for over 10 years but has recently retired and is now looking to downsize.

The property is the dream combination of classically traditional houses that have been fully renovated to modern standards, large landscaped gardens and with even further potential for development if so desired.

The property comprises two fully renovated houses and two further stone-built houses for complete renovation and approximately 10,000m2 (1 hectare) of land. The land includes a large extension of meadowland, an organic vegetable garden, several fruit trees and lawned and hedged areas.

The main house is grand and spacious with a charming, elegant layout whose design has been further guided by the principles of feng shui to ensure good flow. It retains oodles of original features, including the wonderful, wide chestnut floor boards in the salon and the typical Asturian galeria. The renovations have been done with great good taste and top quality materials, unifying modern comforts with timeless design.

You enter the main house from the pleasant porch, straight into the spacious, eat-in kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted and has a walk-in pantry for further storage. To the back is a cosy salon with fireplace. There is also a washroom with toilet on this ground floor.

To the first floor there is the elegant, high-ceilinged lounge with fireplace.  This opens onto the architecturally typical Asturian galeria. The galeria is a glorious light-filled space which enjoys panoramic views of the Sueve mountain. It currently serves the dual purpose of workspace/office with further seating area.

Off the galeria to one end is a beautiful, full bathroom and off the other end is a double bedroom with wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes.

Behind the main lounge is the library, with double height ceiling giving plenty of storage space but retaining a lovely, cosy feel.

To the second floor is the master bedroom, which is en-suite, plus a further bedroom which is currently a dedicated meditation space.

To the front of the house is a good-sized, level and landscaped garden bounded by high hedges and stone wall, affording a private space away from rental guests for the owner-occupier.

The separate guest house has the highest (three trisquel) rating from the tourist board. It is spacious and airy with three double bedrooms, all en-suite and with one of them being fully wheelchair accessible, including an adapted shower. There is a large open-plan eat-in kitchen and living room complete with fireplace on the ground floor and a further light-filled salon to the upstairs landing.

To the east end of the guest house is a small, private garden that is perfect for guests to take morning tea and breakfast. To the rear are further grounds for the use of guests, including a large meadow with a level area by the house suitable for games and where a further outdoor dining set is usually situated. There is parking for two cars here, at the top of the private driveway.

To the rear of the main house are further walled gardens, including a mature veggie plot and barbeque and outdoor dining area, plus a restored horreo (traditional, stilted Asturian granary). An old water store has been reclaimed and repurposed to provide a good-sized tool shed and store.

Behind the walled veggie garden is a stone-built house in ruins, which could be rebuilt. A fourth house, which is also for renovation although the walls and roof are intact, is attached to the main house.

Both of the renovated houses have gas-fuelled central heating.

Attached to the main house is a further stone built house of 80m2 that could be renovated to provide further accommodation or workshop or studio space to suit the new owner’s needs. The roof has already been renovated to maintain structural integrity. In the rear garden there is the site of a further stone built house in ruins that could also be rebuilt if so desired.

The property is located in a tranquil, attractive village which has excellent access and a lovely open aspect which makes the most of the spectacular views.

This is a dream home just waiting for its new owner. Could it be you?
