This early eighteenth-century home enjoys a peaceful, elevated setting and gracious composition that would endear it to any discerning country squire.

The main house was built by master mason Manuel Gutiérrez Cavada in 1717–18, featuring an extraordinary ashlar stone façade. Inside, there is an immediate feeling of spaciousness that persists as we pass through the interior, arranged in the classical layout for this style of period home. The accommodation is spread over three levels, the upper floors reached via an imposing columned staircase. The ground floor is where the day-to-day work of the household would have taken place. Today it houses two kitchens, a bedroom, sitting room, lounge and wine cellar. Upstairs, the rooms fan out from two vestibules, the larger flowing into the smaller. Here we find a voluminous reception room, a small anteroom, the master bedroom (en-suite), two further bedrooms and two bathrooms. An attic level, reached by a wide wooden staircase, contains a generous space currently used as a billiard room, two light-filled bedrooms and a bathroom.

This very special property is set in charming gardens, featuring an orchard and several ancillary structures, including a picturesque dovecote. With plenty of space for parking, it would make a magical weekend escape as well as an extraordinary year-round home.
