1,404m² country house with 12,987m² garden for sale in Pla de l'Estany
This exclusive property is located in a beautiful, very quiet area in the eastern part of the Pla de l'Estany region, on the border of Alt Empordà, a transition area between the Empordà plain and the Garrotxa mountains, 120 metres above sea level, close to the Costa Brava and the Vallter 2000 ski slopes.
We arrive at the property by a very private road that leads us to the interior of the 7.6-hectare estate, where we see its imposing façade and the spectacular 1.2-hectare garden, impeccably landscaped, with fully mature trees. The rest of the land is used for cultivation, orchards and forest that can be travelled through on a paved track that runs through the entire estate, which is all fenced. There is an entrance barrier with remote control.
We find 16th century remains in this property, which was completely restored in the 70s and consists of a main house, a guest house, a garage for 2 cars and a buggy, a covered parking area for 5 cars, and a free parking area with room for about 30 cars. Outdoor covered gym, several porches and a 16.5-metre indoor pool and sauna.
The main house, a large, stately building, with a quadrangular floor plan around a central Gothic patio with a fountain, maintains its original historical characteristics, such as exposed stone walls, double voussoired doors with semicircular arches, vaulted ceilings and solid oak beams, among others.
On the ground floor, formerly used for animals or stables, we find 5 rooms adapted to different uses, a billiards room and 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a music room, with a Plevel baby grand piano.
On a lower level, we find a storage area, a heated indoor pool (showers and complete bathroom), and a large cellar.
To access the ground floor, the house has 2 staircases and a lift suitable for wheelchairs that greatly facilitates accessibility to a spacious living room, 2 dining rooms and a kitchen, both with exits to different terraces ideal as summer dining rooms and 5 bedrooms (a suite bedroom with private bathroom and loft, 2 double bedrooms with shared bathroom and 2 bedrooms for children).
From the same room you can access the tower office, with its library, an incredible space due to its excellent views of the entire estate and the mountains, ideal as a study or office.
A living room with a spectacular fireplace and original flooring, which can be used as a TV room.
The exterior of the house stands out for its different garden areas, 2 semi-covered barbecues, a games area, cosy porches and a forest area, orchard and cultivation area (approximately one hectare). The garden boasts a contemporary style with mature trees and automatic irrigation. A perfect natural area to relax, disconnect and enjoy the different seasons of the year. Finally, there is a small soccer field with regulation goals and grass.
A unique property ideal as a family holiday home, to develop a hotel business such as Relais & Chateaux, as well as for all kinds of events.
