  • Bedrooms 4
  • Bathrooms 3
  • Size 371m²
  • Plot size 730m²

Unique eco-friendly house in Olivella with incredible attention to detail in the construction, using natural materials and energy saving design techniques.

The house is on a sloping plot and was built in 2012 with the utmost respect for the natural surroundings, altering them as little as possible. Mediterranean pine forests, typical of the Garraf Natural Park, surround the property and it benefits from complete privacy. The plot in front is not buildable and is listed as rural territory, meaning the privileged views are also protected.

The use of entirely natural materials throughout the building creates a healthy and very pleasant atmosphere to live in. The ceilings are high and an attractive feature of this house is the play on varying heights. The property has 3 levels that are, on occasions, separated by 1 metre and on others by as much as 3 metres, creating interesting and unique spaces. The windows are very large and not only provide abundant natural light but also show wonderful views of the natural surroundings.

The 60 cm thick exterior walls maintain the interior temperature perfectly. Furthermore, the heating is provided using 2 geothermal wells which are 80 metres deep, as well as an anaerobic biodigester to treat black water and produce biogas for the kitchen and there are 60,000-litre rain water collection tanks.

The house is south facing and has 4 bedrooms and a study that could be used as a fifth bedroom. There are various layout options which can easily be put in place to suit the buyer's needs.

Fruit trees have been planted and benefit from an automatic watering system using the recycled water from the house. The house has a wooden deck and a stone pool with a platform next to it for sunbathing. 

The ideal property for a family looking for an environmentally friendly and energy efficient home.
