This very special property occupies a peaceful spot in a picturesque medieval village, less than an hour and a half from Barcelona and with unbroken views of the Pre-Pyrenees, Serra del Port del Comptey and Castillo de Cardona — one of Spain’s most impressive Romanesque castles, now a Parador hotel.

Looking for something a bit different? How about a modern-day roundhouse? Completed in 1975, this extraordinary property has kept up with the times, having been remodelled by architects in 2011 and updated once more in 2016.

With a built area of 300 sqm, the main house is distributed over three storeys and set on a 700-sqm multilevel plot.

The entrance takes us onto the middle floor, from where we can either ascend to the two bedrooms and full bathroom on the upper floor (there are four bedrooms in total, including a generous master with its own dressing area) or head downstairs to the open-plan kitchen and living space. The remaining two bedrooms and bathroom are found at entrance level.

In addition to its circular form and unique multilevel layout, the house surprises with an abundance of natural light pouring in through its unusually large windows, designed to make the most of the magnificent views. Doors and windows are constructed from high-grade aluminium, with double glazing throughout.

A remarkable configuration of storage space has been custom made to be hidden from view. Nicknamed “the tunnel”, it leads onto a utility room with direct access to the terrace.

Outside, attractive tiered grounds offer splendid views of the castle. An automatic gate is a highly practical touch for ease of access and parking.

One level down is the main entrance to the house, as well as a compact sitting area. Descending further, we come to a wooden cabin, ideal for storage or as a small workshop space. On another tier we find an enticing chill-out zone, with three steps leading up to the main terrace with its delightful outdoor living area, separate barbecue area with traditional wood-burning grill and, best of all, breathtaking views of the Catalan Pyrenees and Port del Compte.

At the lowest level is the garden (fitted with an automatic sprinkler system), swimming pool and an independent loft-style apartment extending to 50 sqm, comprising a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom and licensed for tourist use.

The property also offers a covered garage with space for two cars and a storage area.

If you’re ready to embrace the new normality, living and working in a peaceful and care-free environment without sacrificing local conveniences, this could be the one.
