Happy Bargain Friday! Today’s property is located in the Picos de Europa National Park, in Asturias, Spain. The views of the surrounding mountains are absolutely stunning! The building is currently a two-bedroom stone farmhouse in need of renovation, and some work has already been done to stabilize the structure. The listing contains architect’s plans for what the house could look like after renovations – you could make a gorgeous home!
The scenery is so dramatic and beautiful, I would love to have this as a sanctuary to escape to and wander the surrounding hills, taking in the countryside, or just enjoy looking at the changing of seasons from my cozy stone cottage!
From the listing on Idealista:
Charming stone village farmhouse for renovation, 105 square metres over 3 floors. Direct access to 25 square metre terrace and 150 square metre garden with mature trees. Additional 2-storey stone barn of 80 sqm behind and a field of 250 sqm only 100m away. At the front of the village, the house faces south towards the Picos de Europa national park with uninterrupted panoramic views. Fibre optic internet in the village.
Casa Cubil is a traditional nineteenth century farmhouse with half metre thick stone walls in the mountain hamlet of La Molina nestled in front of the Parque Nacional de Picos de Europa with shaded forest walks along the river Casaño.
There is holiday accommodation in the village: Casa Cusau.
Renovated it could be a charming 1 or 2 bedroom house with kitchen diner, lounge, balcony, terrace with access from a garden room, bathroom and main bedroom en-suite. Raising the roof would significantly increase the volume of the house – see design drawing. The house has been stabilised so is structurally sound, and cleared out back to the stone walls and roof structure, so does not leak and is dry. The house and barn are within the village boundary so services are close by and the house can be fully renovated with enlarged windows and increased size.
