265 m2 (2852 ft2)
A contemporary home has emerged from what was a former traditional house set in an elevated position in Central Asturias. This house of 265 m2 (2852 ft2) comprises two floors and is a blend of traditional local materials of stone, slate, wood and ionised iron with the aesthetic of Japan.
The shingle surroundings of the house take you to various water features and slate floored porch and entrance.
On the Ground Floor: Kitchen with pantry, living/dining with open fire hearth, bedroom with built-in fireplace, and fully fitted bathroom with shower and bidet designed in the Japanese tradition where the plunge bath and the exterior pond of the same dimensions seem to merge – nature and home become one.
First Floor: Bedroom, fully equipped bathroom, Library/study of ample proportions whose integral book shelves and desk are included in the price.
Under-floor heating is oil-fired. At all points of this house through clever design and glazing one can appreciate the arboreal nature of the garden and land beyond, which have been planted with 600 different species of indigenous and internationally sourced trees, including centenial specimens. A stream running through provides the source for the small lake and water features, and sensitive planting makes this a garden paradise of 15000 m2. The soil is rich clay with good drainage. Also belonging to this property is the traditional “horreo” - a prized harvest store of this region.
Communications are excellent with good public transport and motorway links, the house is situated in the triangle of Oviedo, Gijón and Avilés all 20 km away. The Airport is 30 km distant.
