Everything you need to know about this house / villa for sale

In the small town of O Porirño, Pontevedra, we find this unique property dating back to early 1901, finished in great detail by the Galician architect Jenaro de la Fuente Dominguez. Situated in the centre of town, it has many great possibilities of converting the property into a large residential property or a commercial use property, for example, a small boutique hostel. It is located in the centre of town, with the Camino of Santiago passing in front of the property.

Villa Florida has a U-shaped layout on the ground floor and a rectangular first floor, with two protruding blocks on both sides of the ground floor.

A gate between the 2 protruding blocks protects a small courtyard from the street. This is the main entrance to this stately building.

The greatest decoration can be seen on this main façade. The windows have segmental and semicircular arches, as does the door. They are moulded arches with a highly ornamented keystone in the centre. There are 2 windows in the two projecting pavilions with semicircular arches and fluted pilars with composite capitals on top.

The building is ornate, with floral decoration, to give the structure more extraordinary elegance, the upper part of the building is crowned with a balustrade separated by sections that mark small pilasters placed on top of the façade. The entire mansion is built with excellent stonework.

On the rear side of the building, there is an extensive green area in which there was an English and a French garden in the golden days of this Villa Florida, of which there are still signs. It offers large trees, plants, and lovely exterior spaces that can be enjoyed today.

The garden can be accessed from the street through a classical gateway with two fluted columns with Corinthian capitals attached to the wall flanking a semicircular arch supporting an entablature with an ornate frieze. A coat of arms of the Tavares house is displayed there.

One inside Villa, Florida, the mansion offers historical artistry. There are 2 levels of space, high ceilings measuring almost 5 metres high and historic mosaic tile flooring, stonework and carpentry.

We have the living area on the main floor, with a grand dining room leading to the back garden, the sitting lounge, the living room, a large kitchen, a study/library, and the grand stairway to the first floor.

On the first floor, we find the sleeping area. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 shared bathrooms, a dressing and ironing room and a large exterior terrace.

The property needs updating. Overall, the structure of the property is in good condition.

This property can be attractive for anyone looking to take on a project to restore this property to use it as a primary residence or a small boutique hotel. The location is a suburb, and the history behind this exquisite mansion always has value.
