A strategic location since pre-Roman times, in the Middle Ages this sweeping estate, two-and-a-half hours north of Madrid in Valladolid province, hosted a defensive castle. Today, it is a suitably impressive setting for a unique period home, where renowned Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset spent many happy summers.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an extraordinary estate and unique period home with a rich and intriguing history.

The estate (225 ha) is composed of fertile agricultural land, sprinkled with pinewood groves and traversed by the River Cea—from which it is licenced to draw water—and the legendary Camino de Santiago. The owners have obtained hunting licences and retain a falconer, gardener and forest ranger. As well as the main house, the estate encompasses a unique Visigoth church dating from the 10th century, listed as a national cultural heritage site.

The house itself is stately but distinctive, sporting a delightful medley of architectural features. The living space is laid out over two main floors and a three-storey tower, linked by a fine spiral staircase with wrought-iron balustrade.

With a total built area of 1,300 m2, there is no shortage of space: as well as nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two staff bedrooms and a self-contained modern apartment with its own wine cellar, there is also a choice of reception rooms, dining room and an impressive study/sitting room with a vaulted ceiling and arched windows.

The former owner, an architect himself, paired up with a landscape gardener to create a stunning formal garden. Lawn, flowering plants and trees come together to create a serene and harmonious space, with a sizeable swimming pool screened by a mature stand of trees.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an extraordinary estate and unique period home with a rich and intriguing history. Exceptional as a private residence, it also has an abundance of commercial potential — should you feel like sharing it.
