This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a substantial property comprising a stone-built farmhouse from the year 1880 (complete with coat of arms etched into the stone work) with its various outbuildings and a total of 4.5 hectares of land.

The living accommodation is to the first floor of the building (80m2 approx.) with a barn to the ground floor beneath and hayloft to the rear. There is a large, separate garage and a panera, which is a 6-legged version of an hórreo, the traditional stilted granary which is typical of Asturias.  The buildings sit within a plot of 3.5 hectares of land (mostly steep – this is the mountains, in the heart of the Cordillera Cantábrica!) which is bordered at the bottom by a river.

The buildings are in good structural condition, and the roof of the main property has been recently renovated. The house has double-glazed windows and a diesel central heating system and is in habitable condition although in need of modernisation and with oodles of unexplored potential with those ample square metres of attached buildings.

At a remove from the main plot, further along the river there is a mill for complete renovation and its plot of 461m2 which is also included in the sale.

And separate again, a further plot of 1 hectare (10,000m2) of land comprises mainly oak and chestnut woodland and some grazing land.

The farmhouse is tucked away up a quiet country lane opposite a heavily-wooded hillside and with a river running through the valley beneath. The surrounding area is an unspoilt paradise for lovers of the great outdoors – less well-known internationally (and less-tramped) than the Picos de Europa that lie further east in the same range, this corner of the Cordillera Cantábrica has the biggest and best concentration of sports climbing in the whole region, and an infinity of stunning hiking, biking and horse riding  tracks, plus some of the most famous road-cycling climbs that feature yearly in the Vuelta de España. The gently accessible Senda del Oso (Bear’s path) that is a big draw year-round for domestic, family tourism is a few minutes away, at the bottom of the valley.

And speaking of bears, bring your binoculars because this is one of the last remaining brown bear habitats in all of Spain, and indeed Europe and if you’re lucky you may catch sight of a wolf while you’re at it!

Winter opportunities for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing can be found (if winter plays ball) at the tops of the surrounding mountain passes, where the ancient Camín Real de la Mesa path crosses over the tops and into neighbouring León.

The small town (county capital) of San Martin is 10 minutes drive and has all services, including school, health centre, dentist, a plethora of bars and restaurants, supermarkets etc.
