This extraordinary period home, located just outside the city walls of Segovia and minutes from the historic centre, once belonged to the San Juán de Jerusalén Hospital Order of the Knights of the Order of Malta. The exterior and interior load-bearing walls date from the 15th century, but the wine cellar is considerably older, built sometime in the 11th or 12th centuries. Its smart coat of arms projects an image of solemn nobility, and so it comes as something of a surprise to step into a comfortable, welcoming family home with just a frisson of medieval magic, filled with natural light thanks to its strategic east-west orientation.

This luxuriously restored fifteenth-century mansion projects an image of solemn nobility, but step inside and you’ll find a bright, welcoming and unusually well-heated family home.

Evenly distributed over three floors, wine cellar and attic, the main house has a total built area of 600 m2, sandwiched between its two imposing façades. Its luxurious living space comprises two large reception rooms (100 m2 and 60 m2), each with a huge fireplace, two kitchens (one quaintly traditional, one sleek and functional), a library, five en-suite bedrooms, all with adjoining dressing rooms, and eight bathrooms.

Unusually for such a historic property, there’s a modern heating system, with separate controls for each floor. The ground and first floors have even been fitted with underfloor heating, a welcome luxury in wintertime. Throughout the property, we find interesting period features recovered during the renovation or skilful replicas designed to match remaining fragments of original features.

Outside, there is a three-car garage with a self-contained apartment above, which has its own separate entrance. Offering two further bedrooms and a bathroom, this would be ideal for live-in staff. Despite its central location, this extraordinary period home benefits from generous outdoor space in the form of a charming veranda—a real “outdoor room”—and two sunny courtyards.
