Tucked away up a quiet country lane yet just 700 metres from the popular surf beach Playa España and only 15 minutes drive from both Gijón and Villaviciosa, this spacious detached property enjoys the best of both worlds.

A 4 bed, 3 bath single-storey house (that could be converted into 2 or 3 separate apartments relatively simply) and a large, landscaped garden (3,000m2) as well as an Horreo (newly built from chestnut) in a separate plot opposite the house, it has oodles of space for you to enjoy and bags of potential for rental income if you require.

The garden overlooks the river España, several meters below, and a gate leads from the garden to a path directly down to a swim hole and picnic spot. The walk to the beach tracks down a shady valley alongside the river.

The beach itself has a popular ‘chiringuito’ or beach bar that operates throughout spring and summer – Terrazas Ipanema

With the city of Gijón and town of Villaviciosa both approximately 15 minutes drive away you are also ideally placed for travelling further afield as well as for commuting to schools or work places if that’s on the cards.

This unique location makes it ideal for a holiday or year-round home as well as making it very interesting for investors looking for a return on their money. It was in fact renovated with the possibility of separate rental units in mind and could easily be divided to provide 3 separate apartments with the potential to extend the floor space further via the attached ‘lagar’.

The ‘lagar’ is the typical cider pressing room that you will find in most traditional Asturian houses, here used as general storage for sports equipment, tools etc, but also suitable as a multi-car garage as well as the aforementioned potential for conversion to further accommodation.

The house has a spacious, open plan kitchen – dining room – living room, with an open fire place, exposed stone walls, vaulted high ceiling and patio doors that open out onto a terrace with pergola.

The four bedrooms are all suitable for doubles, with one currently used as an office and another as a yoga room, to fit with the current owners’ needs. The main bedroom is en-suite and there are 2 further full bathrooms. There is a built in electric ventilation system throughout and oil-fired central heating.

Underneath the terrace there is a storeroom and separate boiler room.

For sale fully furnished and ready to move into.
