Happy Tuesday! A restored 17th century flour mill in a dramatic natural setting near Torre de las Arcas, in Teruel, Spain!
Longtime followers may remember this house, which I posted back in April, but it’s still on the market and has a new set of non-blurry photos! I am still in love with it! The massive, dramatic cliff to the back and the river to the front are dramatic and beautiful. The interior feels cozy and hidden, a great place to escape to!
From the listing on Idealista:
In a peaceful setting by a narrow stretch of the River Cabra, fresh from its journey over the Sierra de San Just, stands this characterful 17th-century flour mill, its original mill stone still in place. The driveway to the house is spectacular, but does have some steep sections, which means a 4×4 vehicle is recommended.
The property was fully renovated in 2000 and the interior has been arranged to celebrate this unique building and make the most of the 230 m2 living space. On the lower level, we find a well-appointed kitchen, living room with working fireplace and a bathroom, while the upper level contains two generous bedrooms. The facilites require some upgrading, although the property is linked to the village water system and does have an electric generator.
Just 800 m from the village of Torre de las Arcas, this unique character home lies between the Cabra and Martín Rivers, which flank a biological corridor between the vast Iberian mountain range and the Ebro valley. Classed as a Site of Community Importance for its range of natural habitats and biodiversity, it’s a nature-lovers paradise and a wonderful base for discovering the diverse natural splendour of this part of eastern Spain, where you can enjoy riparian woodland, fragrant pine forests carpeted in heather, mountains, canyons and plunging ravines and breathe pure air scented delicately with thyme, lavender and chamomile.
The N-211 and local road TE-V-1334 are the main routes into the village, and there are regular bus services to Alcañiz and the provincial capital, Teruel (94 km). This unique character home would make a wonderful weekend retreat in a delightfully tranquil and restorative environment.
