Semi-restored 14th century castle for sale with 158 hectares of private land in a beautiful location in the Les Gavarres Natural Park - just 13km from Girona city
Surrounded by nature, this impressive, semi-restored stone property is located in a stunning countryside location in the heart of Les Gavarres natural park, just 13km from Girona city.
Originally dating from the 14th Century, the property is part of a vast country estate and is being sold with 158 hectares of land.
Constructed in the style of a castle or palace with a defence tower on the west wing, the property previously lay in ruins and has been painstakingly restored by its current owner in sympathy with its original architecture. The restoration has taken place over a four year period and the property is being sold as a shell with the main structure now fully restored including internal and external walls, new floors and a new roof.
The property has 3-phase mains electricity and the water is drawn from two separate wells.
The house is constructed over 4 levels and boasts many typical features of a property of this category, including the original bread oven, a huge open fireplace in the ground floor kitchen, original stone floors, exposed stone walls and a huge stone arch on the ground floor. There are exposed chestnut wooden beams throughout the property, 3 open fireplaces, and the windows are a mixture of gothic and romanesque styles.
The property also boasts several outdoor terraces and a garage with capacity for one car.
The 158 hectares of land is predominantly woodland, including a mixture of holm oak, cork, olive and pine trees. The estate is located in the Gavarres Natural Park which is a protected area of woodland.
The estate is located 10km into the park and enjoys total privacy with far reaching views across beautiful, rolling woodland.
Despite its tranquil, rural location, the property is located just 13km from Girona city and only 25-minutes from Girona airport.
This would make a wonderful, country residence or hotel venture, offering the buyer total privacy in a privileged countryside location just 15-minutes from Girona city.
