This is a one-off opportunity to purchase a modern high-tech, ecologically constructed home nestled in over 2.5 hectares of carefully-managed land that is a haven for native fauna and wildlife, yet conveniently located just outside the bustling riverside town of Arriondas where you have all services on your doorstep (up to and including two Michelin-starred restaurants if that’s your bag!)

The house uses passive solar gain, a high-efficiency stove and air exchange unit to keep the interior temperature to a maximally comfortable 21 degrees celsius year-round  (that’s 70 degrees F to our American friends!) Country living with all mod cons plus a negative carbon footprint – a combination that is incredibly hard to find in this market.

Designed to have the feel of mountain elevations, the main house is open and airy, flooded with natural light and has high, ‘cathedral’ ceilings throughout. As you might expect from such a high spec house it comes with a proper cook’s kitchen which is properly ventilated so all cooking aromas are carried outside despite the open plan layout. The house is finished and ready to move into but there are a few smaller jobs to be completed and there is room to add personal flourish!

Below the main house there is a large, separate apartment (which does need a bit more finishing) but would be a great source of income or perfect guest apartment. Additionally, there is another independent building some 50m feet away that was constructed with conversion to a guest house in mind and using the same technology used in the house: fully insulated floor, walls and roof, solar gain, etc. At the moment this is a tool shed but with a bit of work would make a great rental or guest space.

The ecologically-minded philosophy of course carries over into the land management of the property and the owners have planted over 700 trees, rehabilitating what was previously overgrazed land. This has encouraged a welcome return of native flora and fauna. The trees include nut bearing walnut and chestnut trees and two apple orchards. Wildlife visitors include deer, fox, badgers and birds of prey.

The surrounding woodland protects the privacy of the house as well as providing a beautiful environment in harmony with nature. From the wonderful picture windows you can also catch a glimpse of the iconic Picos mountains.

With Arriondas town on the doorstep you have all services on hand, up to and including the regional hospital. From there you can also catch regional transport links via train and coach. By car  it is 20 minutes to the beach, 75 minutes to Asturias airport.
