Spectacular 19th century house to renovate for sale near Banyoles Lake

  • Bedrooms 8
  • Bathrooms 2
  • Size 685m²
  • Plot size 745m²
  • Garden 410m²

Unique opportunity to renovate a 19th century manor house with a beautiful garden located in the heart of the old town of Banyoles and just under 1 km from its famous lake.

This fascinating property looks like it has been stopped in time and is full of amazing features like pretty mosaic tiles, ornate stained glass windows, high vaulted ceilings with hanging chandeliers and a lookout tower at the very top with views across the town.

Originally the house of a well known business man, also mayor of the town, the house and façades were lavishly restored in 1856, giving the property an elegant and luxurious feel.

This house spreads over 4 floors and has a large 410 m² walled garden with a separate entrance directly from the road.

The grand front door leads to a good sized entrance hall and then a central landing just ahead. On either side we find an ornate office with a fireplace and a reception room, both with stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings. Across from the central landing there is a spacious dining room with French windows leading to the garden and the old kitchen, which also leads to the garden.

The first floor, where the owner's bedrooms are, has a stately feel with high ceilings and large balconies plus an attractive arched gallery which overlooks the garden. The second floor is where the servants used to live while the third floor is a series of storage rooms and spaces where food was kept. There is also a tower with a central skylight on the fourth floor that acts both as a light well for the grand spiral staircase and also as a lookout terrace across the town.

Outside in the garden there are also various outbuildings originally animal quarters and wine cellars. The garden itself is a romantic walled garden, with a pretty water feature and vast arched doorway that leads directly to the church square around the back of the house.

The property is listed as a monument of historic interest and can be converted into a boutique hotel. It would make an amazing project for anyone searching for an authentic building to bring back to life and combine the original features with modern day amenities like ensuite bathrooms and a swimming pool in the garden.
