Cocooned by nature yet easily accessible, this fine 600 sqm home presides over a ravishing two-hectare estate.

A bucolic grassy meadow, fairy-tale woodland and a swimming pool with views of the church bell tower are just some of the features adding to the enchantment of this enviable country residence, just 20 minutes from Ezcaray.

The main house is comprised of two storeys. Stepping inside, the ground floor reveals a spacious entrance lobby, an imposing living room with fireplace and large dining room, both opening out onto the front porch. This charming open-air space is arranged into two distinct ‘rooms’, offering a choice of atmospheres for family celebrations and unobstructed views over the surrounding countryside. A fully equipped kitchen, two guest bathrooms and a rather splendid billiard room complete this level.

The upper floor is given over to bedrooms – six in total – two of which have their own separate sitting room and bathroom, forming two suites ensuring comfort and privacy for guests.

The master bedroom also has its own sitting room with a fireplace, perfect as a cosy office, plus an en-suite bathroom.

Of the three remaining bedrooms, one is en-suite, with the other two sharing a separate family bathroom.

All bedrooms have oversized windows affording spectacular, uninterrupted views over the grounds and the mountain landscape beyond. The interior has been thoughtfully composed to incorporate premium natural materials (terracotta tiling, stone, wood, etc.).

An interior garage is a convenient modern addition.

Within the grounds is an additional, standalone house equally suitable for household staff or guests, with living room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.

The property is equipped with diesel-fired central heating and connected to the local grid for all utilities. There is also a well for garden use.

The greatest joy of this property is its remarkable grounds, incorporating a tennis court, padel tennis court, enticing swimming pool, sweeping meadows, gurgling stream and gently undulating terrain, perfect for blissful garden walks.

It also happens to boast an unbeatable location, perfectly secluded but just a moment’s stroll from the village, 20 minutes from the town of Ezcaray, 30 km from Valdezcaray ski resort, 55 km from Burgos, 100 km from Vitoria-Gasteiz, 140 km from Bilbao and 300 km from Madrid.

And on the doorstep is the Sierra de la Demanda, a majestic outdoor playground where historic sites nestle among a patchwork of pristine natural habitats.

Be warned: this rare and extraordinary home charms at every turn – you may find yourself powerless to resist.
