This spectacular country estate was designed in 1960 by architect Manuel de Cabanyes to make the most of an enviable location, with far-reaching views over the mountains, the Escorial monastery and the Madrid skyline. Three freestanding houses combine to offer elegant accommodation with scope for multigenerational living.

A spectacular country estate boasting sweeping views over the mountains offering elegant living just 30 minutes from Madrid in El Escorial.

Entering the main house, in which the owners have retained all of the original wooden doors and stone and mud-backed floors, we find a spacious entrance hall, with the greater part of the accommodation branching off in two ground-floor wings to the left and right. The left wing contains three en-suite bedrooms, while in the right wing we find the living room, bathed in natural light thanks to its exceptionally large windows and enjoying direct access to a veranda with chimenea and barbecue. A modern kitchen-diner featuring a walk-in pantry leads on from the living room and onto two further bedrooms and a utility room.

Just next door, with its own separate access, is the housekeeper’s residence, with open plan living and kitchen area and three bedrooms.

Back in the hall, a timber staircase with a wrought-iron balustrade rises to the mezzanine level and two further bedrooms, which share a well-appointed bathroom. Up another flight of stairs are two further bedrooms, each with their own balcony and the office which boasts its own terrace with far-reaching views of the Madrid skyline.

The immediate grounds around the house are well maintained, with a copse of poplar trees providing a shady picnic spot. There is also large, flat area once used as a tennis court, a warehouse and car port — a 56 m2 suntrap with potential for conversion to other uses. Another outbuilding, of 21,4m2 which requires refurbishment, is located nearby.

The property also benefits from connection to the Canal de Isabel II water system, the telephone and electricity network (both of which are underground) and 5 wells.
