6-bedroom country house renovated by a renowned Catalan architect with a swimming pool and beautiful natural garden.

This impressive 17th century country house is set on a 2,500 m² plot in Pla de l'Estany. The house, which has 6 bedrooms, has maintained its rustic charm throughout the years and benefits from unbeatable outdoor space to enjoy time outdoors in a fantastic natural setting. The house was renovated in 1985 by the Catalan architect Rafael Marquina Adouard who combined the property's original essence with unique materials and finishes such as a marble bathroom, stone columns, ceilings with the original "volta", oak beams with sculpted gargoyles and marquetry cabinets.

Upon entering the main house, a hallway leads to a wine cellar and a machinery room or workshop. The ground floor also includes 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom.

The first floor offers an open living room with a fireplace and a water tank to heat the radiators. The fantastic dining area is ideal for entertaining family and friends whilst the kitchen, to the rear, has a typical Catalan design, pantry and utility room. From this space we can also access an office-library, a cosy room with a fireplace and mezzanine.

An Iroko wood staircase leads up to the second floor where we find two further double bedrooms that share a newly renovated bathroom. This floor also presents the master bedroom, which is accessed through a feature doorway and has a marble bathroom, dressing room and access to the mezzanine office.

The idyllic exterior space includes a natural garden, full of oak trees and ancient olive trees, watered by rainwater that accumulates in a pool created for this purpose. In this space, we also find a pool with saltwater Jacuzzi surrounded by 200 m² of "rajola de tova" flooring, a tile very characteristic of Catalan architecture. Under a pergola, we find the summer dining room and kitchen with teak cabinets and a barbecue. A double bedroom with a bathroom, a separate dressing room and the pool machinery room complete the property.

The house is equipped with gasoil heating, running water, butane gas for cooking and double-glazed windows with insect screens. It also has three septic tanks and a small shed for storing tools and garden equipment.
