A large historic period estate with land, cottages, manor and woodland located a short drive from Santiago de Compostela. It offers character and charm with the potential to convert it into a spectacular property.
Casa de Barcia is a period estate located a short driving distance from the Galician capital of Santiago de Compostela and situated in the hamlet area of La Portela. The estate consists of three dwellings. The main cottage was established in 1840, the tailor's house was established in 1870, and the manor house was established in 1901.
The property was family-owned since the mid-1840s and was always used for farmland.
The land is divided into private gardens measuring a total of 3,300 m², the farmland 26,000 m², the woodland 122,000 m², and there are currently three building plots measuring 2,200 m².
Throughout the years, the family updated certain sections of the manor house with more useful elements to make the home more convenient and cosy. In the past couple of years, the current owners have converted the property into a small guest home and summer guest house for friends and family members to enjoy the history and the property's surroundings.
The manor house is adapted into a liveable space with bedrooms, bathrooms, a dining area, a large kitchen, and sitting areas. The cottages are kept in their original state and would require complete renovation. Outside we have the gardens finished with a perimeter wall, a variety of mature trees and shrubs, and the flat farmland next to the property. It also features a back fence of bay trees, a traditional stone Horreo (granary) and a stone chicken coop.
Also, the three plots next to the estate are considered building plots, so more dwellings may be built. Planning permission would need to be provided.
The property has its natural water spring and various water wells and is connected to primary utility services.
All of them are built with traditional stonework. The accommodation is light with many period features, including exposed beams, a stone oven and an Inglenook fire in the kitchen.
The estate also features 120,000 m² of woodland that supplies wood and habitat for hundreds of local species. The woodland is displayed in 29 different plots, interconnected by charming paths and forest trails.
The property would be ideal for anyone looking to take on a project to convert it into a spectacular private country estate, maintaining its historic charm and character.
It would also be suitable for a property developer to present a project to the local council to convert it into a residential area because of its convenient location to Santiago de Compostela and the beautiful surrounding nature.
