A really special opportunity for someone who is dreaming of living a sustainable life in harmony with nature, we are very excited to be able to offer these two eco-houses for sale. Each house sits on 2,200m2 of south-sloping woodland and they are for sale separately at a very affordable €125,000 each. They could equally be ideal for 2 families or couples who want to buy the two houses together.

The product of 10 years of eco-building experience, the houses are  hybrid cob-straw bale houses with round-wood post-and-beam structure and green (living) roof and offer superb potential for autonomous low-impact living.

Each of the two houses is 60m2 with 60m2 attached workshop/garage. Each house comes with approved plans for a second phase,  80m2 on two floors, which the purchasers will be free to build whenever it suits them.

The houses are fully legal with architects’ plans and municipal and provincial permits.

The houses are located in a village with mains water and electricity at the entrance to the site, but are designed to facilitate the option of going fully off-grid.

They are “passive solar” houses that will require little or no heating or cooling. This is not achieved through using high-tech materials and complicated electronic systems, but via ancient design techniques like super-insulation, high thermal mass, south facing windows, and earth sheltering to the north. There is the option of adding a small woodstove, burning wood harvested from the land.

They have been built with skill and love, using local and natural materials wherever possible in order to make healthy and sustainable homes.

If you decide to invest in this project, you are not just buying a house; you are becoming part of a village community and joining a growing back-to-the-land movement in a stunningly beautiful part of Spain.

Only 10km from the sea and 140m above sea level the village location enjoys a mild maritime climate, perfect for growing. It has excellent communications and is just 35 minutes from Santander and 50 minutes from Bilbao. It is an area of great natural beauty including spectacular mountains, wetlands, beaches and woodlands.

There is even an option of interest-free payment of part of the total cost, over a time period of up to five years.
