Good Tuesday morning! A faded Spanish beauty with trellised garden, orchards, pool, in need of restoration in Zamora, Spain!
The bones of this home are really beautiful, and the gardens have so much potential to become a paradise! The interior woodwork is stunning quality. I would love to see the before and after of this home as someone restores it with care.
From the listing on Rusticas Singulares:
This stately home with an old French-Compostela style keep is a real gem and a real opportunity. It is 9 minutes from the next AVE Station in Otero de Sanabria. Access to the house is very cinematic, with an old balustrade and a large stone staircase. Where we also find a charming porch.
The main house consists of 3 floors, of approximately 420m2 in total; and a plot of approximately 5,550 m2. Inside: 7 double bedrooms (with the possibility of expansion to another 4 new rooms), 4 bathrooms (with the possibility of another external bathroom-dressing room); 6 built-in wardrobes, common dependencies such as a large dining room and full kitchen; a very bright gallery with impressive views of the Sierra de la Culebra; the majestic lookout tower, terrace and storage room.
Outside: a trellised rear area, a beautiful garden with a swimming pool, a stone gazebo, an old orchard, a windmill and another craft and dovecote.
The farm has an abundance of water through two wells and an independent water tank, as well as also independent access for vehicles.
It is located in a rural environment of hunting, historical and sports interest: a few kilometers from various natural reservoirs that allow water sports; big game, unique in Spain, and minor; and fishing in nearby reserves. Very close to historical-artistic enclaves and which, according to its current owner, could have served as the inspiration for Don Quixote: Templar Tower (National Monument); medieval town of Puebla de Sanabria at 23 Kms; Villardeciervos historical complex (Contraband route); Roman ruins of Sansueña (Petavonium) at 35 kms; Braganza (Portugal) 42 km; Benavente at 53 km.
