Beach, mountains or countryside?

With summer on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about your next getaway. After over a year of being stuck at home under pandemic restrictions, we’re all longing to get back to our old familiar lives. What better way to embrace the return to normality than planning a summer escape – or even investing in your very own place in the sun? If you’re thinking of acquiring a second home, The Singular Space can introduce you to the most extraordinary properties for every taste and dream. What’s it to be: beach, mountains or countryside?

Escape to the Country

Rural locations have always been popular with second-home buyers. Enjoying a restorative break in a unique property, surrounded by the glories of nature, is a dream that many of us share. It’s a promise of respite from the everyday grind, a peaceful rural arcadia where all the rush and stress of the city just melts away. So, how about this fine country home near Pedraza, Segovia, just a little over 100 km from Madrid? The villa is nestled within an estate extending to over a hectare and affording superb views over the mountains. Completing this idyllic scene is a swimming pool and several charming verandas – an unforgettable setting for summer dining. This lovely country home, delightfully rustic and surrounded by trees, conjures up visions of long lazy days and special moments spent with family and friends.

Wake up to the sound of breaking waves

A beachside lifestyle doesn’t need to cut you off from the benefits of city life. Ever imagined waking up to calming ocean views? Of course you have. Lulled by the soft lapping of the waves and the unmistakable scent of the sea, you’ll wonder why you ever wanted to be anywhere else. If you love the beach and have a passion for design, this extraordinary villa in Alicante will bowl you over.

This extraordinary villa is perched on an 885 m2 plot with stunning ocean views. The property occupies a privileged location, less than five minutes by car from Moraira and its spectacular beaches, less than 15 minutes from bustling Calpe and about an hour from the vibrant city of Valencia. The area offers the serenity of a traditional fishing village within easy reach of the city and its exuberant cultural scene.

Designed by the studio of Ramón Gandía Brull, the villa is one of Spain’s foremost examples of contemporary Mediterranean architecture, a triumphant harmony of geometry, light and space.

A refuge in the mountains

The mountains offer us a refuge that helps us disconnect and clear our minds as we revel in their vast majesty. It’s the perfect setting for long, contemplative hikes and discovering hidden spots. If your idea of perfection is pure clean air and wild nature, surrounded by forests and snowy peaks, you’ll want to check out our selection of properties in Spain’s spectacular north. This stylish Asturian stone barn conversion is offered fully furnished and in impeccable move-in condition, ideally situated for enjoying everything this region in northern Spanish has to offer, from the pure mountain air to the fresh sea breeze of the coast.

Dating from 1920, this barn conversion was comprehensively renovated in 2009, respecting the original’s distinctive footprint and making the most of local materials. The 530 m2 property stands in an undulating landscape of rolling pastureland and intense green forests and enjoys sublime mountain views. The interior, too, is a delight to the eyes: warm, welcoming and flaunting a distinctively contemporary aesthetic, with rich tones from the chestnut and iroko wood mingling with warm masonry and jet-black slate, all locally sourced.
