Impeccably located in the well-known neighbourhood of Los Caballeros, in Segovia's Old Town.

Only this property offers the invaluable experience of observing the arches of Segovia's famous aqueduct from the comfort of your own garden.

Dating back to the 13th century, the property has undergone a series of projects over the years to perfect it to its beautiful current configuration.

It features two Romanesque arches, one at the entrance and another at the ground level in the central patio.

Its renaissance-period patio, one of the jewels in the crown of this palatial home, is truly a sight to behold; of its 12 beautiful columns, the ones positioned in the corners still bear the coats of arms of the prestigious families who have owned this elegant period mansion. On one of the walls flanking these columns, the simple sgraffito that once adorned it can still be discerned.

The huge staircase is impressive in both breadth and height, with escutcheons on the four corners of its elegant coffered ceiling featuring the four coats of arms from the patio, dating back to the 16th century. The stairwell, bannister and wall decorations are from the 19th century. This breath-taking staircase is rivalled only, in terms of Segovian architecture, by the one in the city's Episcopal Palace.

Around the first floor gallery, which was open-air until the 19th century, one of Segovia's most beautiful Renaissance sgraffitos can still be seen.

Beautiful 19th century wallpaper still graces the walls of the main rooms on this level: the living room, dining room, oratory, the master bedroom and a single bedroom. The other main rooms still boast their original 17th century stuccoed walls.

The period mansion features two main floors plus a basement and an attic, as well as three garden areas: a Renaissance period central patio, a back patio and a beautiful garden area bordering the majestic Roman aqueduct, whose final arch rests on one of its borders.

The property is divided into several different spaces, storage areas and a wine cellar, and whilst it would benefit from some refurbishment, it offers immense potential to be crafted into the property of your dreams.

Extraordinary views and a south-east facing orientation are added benefits afforded by this magnificent property, which offers unrivalled views of both sides of the aqueduct and the Sierra de Guadarrama.

Despite its central Segovia location, the property is positioned in tranquil area with very low footfall, instilling a sense of remarkable peace and quiet.

This spectacular period palace is a one-off chance to buy your own little piece of history.
