Nestled in just over 2 hectares (20,000m2 approx.) of land is the collection of stone and wood buildings that comprise this quintessentially Asturian property. The lovely stone-built house that is the core of it all has been renovated retaining all of its original charm and many original features and is ready to move into and enjoy from day 1, whilst still offering scope for some further improvements and additional development.

To the ground floor of the house is a spacious eat-in kitchen, complete with wood-burning stove and original mosaic tile flagstone flooring. You are probably familiar with the style as it has inspired many modern imitations in ceramic (and even linoleum!) which are pretty to look at but can’t hold a candle to these original handmade hydraulic cement tiles Rustic and beautiful, the kitchen is fully functioning (apart from the old range cooker unfortunately, which is currently purely decorative) but could do with a bit of an overhaul and is really just waiting for its new owners to decide exactly how they want it.

The heart of this ground floor and indeed probably of the house itself has got to be here, around the large farmhouse-style dining table, perfect for those long Spanish lunches with their accompanying ‘sobremesa’. A great place to put the world to rights with friends and family.

From here French windows open directly out onto the garden.

Off the kitchen there is also the downstairs toilet as well a pantry / utility room. Opening off this side of the house is the main entrance door.

A flight of stairs leads from the kitchen to the first floor, which has an open-plan sitting room, with a corner carved out as a work/study space, and a bedroom screened off to one end. There is also a full bathroom on this floor.

Further stairs lead up to the loft space which provides useful extra storage and a spare sleeping space, with plenty of natural light thanks to two Velux windows.

Set a little apart from the main house is the stone-built barn which is a lovely large space with a ton of potential. This is eligible for change of use under local planning regulations and could thus be renovated to provide further accommodation or you may want it as a workshop or yoga space or….the list goes on. A blank canvas it can be adapted to your particular requirements.

In addition, the property also has not one but two hórreos (the traditional Asturian grain stores that are emblematic of the region). One of these has been enclosed underneath to provide a useful store and boiler room. The underneath of the other one has been used for shady/sheltered outdoor seating and dining. Both of them have electricity and water connected and have in the past been used as a rough and ready bunkhouse sleep space for friends staying over.

With a total of over 2 hectares of land, if your dreams include growing vegetables or keeping animals then you certainly have space to play with. Equally if that sounds like a lot to take on you could always continue with the current owners’ arrangement which sees a neighbour’s cows grazing the fields to the front of the barn and therefore keeping the grass down and the land in check whilst leaving them with a more manageable chunk of land around the house of some 8,000m2 in total (some of which is woodland).

The property sits at the end of a quiet country lane that has no other houses on it. It enjoys wonderful mountain and woodland views and is surrounded by nature in all its spectacular beauty. A perfect retreat for nature lovers it is also conveniently placed for exploring the rest of the region.

The riverside town of Arriondas with its excellent supermarkets, restaurants, regional hospital and all major services is just 15 minutes drive. The elegant coastal town of Ribadesella with its beach and charming port is 20 minutes. And you also have the wonderful Molín de Mingo restaurant within walking distance. What more could you possibly ask for?
