The main house may preserve its traditional thick stone walls, exposed wooden beams, simple roof tiling and traditional Segovian wooden doors, but this property is anything but a fusty antique. Brought up-to-date with thoughtful contemporary touches, like the polished concrete flooring in the main living space, it offers the ultimate in modern comfort and style.

Watch out, because this immaculately restored home – with its luxe finishes and tactile materials, jaw-dropping views and exquisite natural light – is out to steal your heart.

The property now boasts a geothermal heating system (underfloor heating on the ground floor and cast-iron radiators on the upper floor) which offers significant cost savings while maintaining a snug ambient temperature all year round, with smart controls connected to the wi-fi network.

The accommodation is arranged over two levels: the ground floor, with its polished concrete flooring and airy spaces with direct garden access, is comprised of a grand entrance hall, an inviting living room with fireplace and access to the covered veranda, and an open-plan dining-kitchen area with an impressively lofty ceiling. The kitchen features a large central island and is fully equipped with all modern appliances. A traditional hearth has been ingeniously incorporated into a striking steel fireplace, while an old stone sink and antique wood-burning stove have been impeccably adapted for contemporary use. Also on this level are two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a unique space used as a wine cellar, complete with an antique press for treading grapes.

Upstairs, bleached carpentry adds a contemporary warmth and lightness. Here we find three further bedrooms – each generously proportioned and with its own en-suite bathroom, plus dressing room off the master suite – and a spacious, open-plan living area offering valuable versatility (office, workshop, music room, games room, cinema, etc.).

The property’s outdoor space deserves a special mention. The house is surrounded by a 5,000-sqm garden that has been completely replanted, its discrete LED lighting creating a magical atmosphere after dark. The designers have made unique features out of old wells and restored ruined outbuildings now used for storage, which could easily be converted into a self-contained apartment. Access is via an automatic gate, with covered parking inside.

The front half of the garden is planted with a variety of trees including American oak, weeping cherry (imported from Japan), maple, ash, sequoia, beech, spruce, apple, cherry and quince, as well as a kitchen garden. To the rear, a delightful patio is enfolded in rose bushes, hydrangeas, camellias, lilacs, magnolias and a spectacular fig tree. Their scent mingles in the breeze, making this an idyllic spot to spend a summer afternoon.

Another major advantage of this fine property is that it combines all of this spectacular outdoor space with a central village location.

It’s approximately 75 minutes by road from Madrid (125 km), 35 km from Segovia and just 15 km from Pedraza and Sotosalbos and 9 km from Turégano.

A more sophisticated country idyll would be hard to find.
