This beautifully restored 19th century farm house is set on 700m2 of garden and orchard. It is situated in the Province of León, some 40 km north of the city of León. Here on the south slope of the Cordillera de Cantabria mountains is one of Spain’s least-known beauty spots. Available from your front door is the complete range of adventure pursuits, from skiing to rafting and fishing, climbing to caving or just hiking this mountain paradise in the heart of Green Spain.
Situated in the village of La Mata de la Berbula there is easy communication with the cathedral city of León by road or rail. A 15 minute walk from the house finds several restaurants, bars, shops, banks and train stations. The market town of Boñar is less than 10 minutes away by car. The house is a completely new construction nestled inside the façade of a stone-built farm house. It is thoroughly insulated and of course has up-to-date plumbing, heating, electrics, etc. Care has been taken to preserve the traditional feel and appearance of the local architecture including traditional external covered corridors.
The house is entered from the street via large wooden gates opening onto a lovely shaded courtyard with mature plantings and trees. There is also a permanent out-door but under-cover barbecue with sink.
Ground Floor: Comprises, kitchen/dining room, living room, laundry room/cloakroom and entrance hall. It is paved with local limestone and has under-floor heating throughout with an additional cast iron wood-burning stove.
First Floor: Accessed by a stunning “floating” stone staircase with wrought iron banisters. The floor is covered with solid oak parquet flooring. It is centrally heated with radiators. The space comprises a master bedroom and en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, a lounge with connecting French doors leading to a large roof terrace with fantastic views down the valley of the Curueño River.
Apartment: Connected to the house and accessed by separate entrance from the patio, is a self-contained apartment/guest house. It has 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom with over bath shower on the upper floor. There are also connecting double doors leading to the roof terrace. The ground floor is a kitchen/sitting room combined.
The final part of the house is a 2 storey workshop/ artist’s studio and a garage with automatic door opening onto a back lane. Water, mains sewer, and electricity are installed so conversion to living space would be straightforward.
This property is ideal for anyone looking for a potential business opportunity or just rural tranquillity. As is, it would be perfect for a “ bed and breakfast”, but could easily be expanded to several self-contained rentals. The land is zoned “urban” meaning building is permitted.
