This is a fantastic, private and hidden property with a completely renovated ruin and a new-built house located in peaceful nature with amazing views over the hills.
It’s reached on a tarmac road, then a short dirt track and planted driveway with a carp and lily pond. There is a garage and plenty of parking spaces. Although in the hills, there are many large flat areas and lovely walkways. On this pretty plot with lots of shade and fruit trees there is a glamping station with an artfully cut caravan as a bedroom, outdoor/indoor bathroom and outdoor kitchen. Abundant pure mountain water comes from four springs and is heated by solar panels. Electricity is generated by photo voltaic panels and mains when necessary.

The main house comprises a spacious and light open plan kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burner and high beamed ceilings. Leading from here are three large bedrooms each with their own bathroom and independent access. The living area is made even bigger by a lovely conservatory running the length of the house. The pool with its wooden decking and fabulous views is just a few steps away.
The second house at a few metres distance comprises a lounge and dining room, fitted kitchen, two en-suite bedrooms with a further bedroom and separate bathroom and a huge, relaxing garden area. There are several water features around the land and places to sit and admire the scenery.

The houses are heated in winter by radiators, wood burner and salamandras and are cool in the summer due to the effective insulation and thickness of the walls.

This is an ideal property to have a guest / B&B business or could be perfect for two family homes as the houses are private from each other.
