Dating back to the 17th century, the property preserves some wonderful historical details that add to its considerable visual appeal, including a curved recess holding a replica of a sculpture by San Antonio, a shrine cross added in the 18th century, a sundial, a shield bearing the coat of arms of the Fernández Velarde family and a fully restored bread oven crafted from fire-resistant brick.

Sympathetically refurbished with an emphasis on comfort, this distinctly aristocratic home wears its past with understated aplomb, offering welcoming family accommodation with some delightful outdoor spaces.

The property is accessed through either of two equally impressive entrances, lending it a unique charisma right from the start.

On the way in, we might notice the restored bread oven, two verandas and a lovely Japanese-style garden extending to 530 sqm — the perfect place to pause and take in the charming prospect before us.

The house offers around 450 sqm of comfortable living space arranged over three floors. The ground floor contains a grand entrance hall, small wine cellar, two bedrooms, bathroom and sauna area.

The first floor is the focus of family life. Here we find the master bedroom, kitchen, a delightful sitting room with wood-burning stove, a dining room and full bathroom complete with whirlpool bath. A graceful wooden balcony is a particular highlight, adding a generous area of outdoor space.

The accommodation continues on the second floor with a bright and spacious living area featuring a traditional stone fireplace, high sloping ceiling and eight metres of dazzling French windows opening onto the upper terrace, revealing a splendid view. Two further bedrooms, both with sloping ceilings, are also found on this floor.

Linking it all together is an impressively stately wooden staircase. The property also benefits from enclosed garaging and an attractive interior courtyard.

Location-wise, we would struggle to find a more perfect spot than this idyllic natural setting, less than 30 km from Santander with easy access to the motorway and a mere 10 minutes from the stunning beaches of Santillana del Mar. A range of local shops and services cater to every daily need.

Spectacular cliffscapes, fine sandy beaches (such as Playa de Luaña and Playa de Comillas) and the region’s breathtaking natural parks are all close at hand.

This is a truly unique property in move-in condition, promising an extraordinary lifestyle in this enchanting corner of Cantabria.
