Full Description

For sale direct from the owner!

This charming stone cottage is located in the small hamlet of Valdorria in the beautiful Cordillera Cantábrica León countryside.  An area unspoiled by mass tourism with some of the most attractive natural features you could imagine.

The style of the property is typical of the area with the use of stone and wood which creates charm and character throughout.

The property comes with a main house with a “Casa Rural” tourism licence which makes it the perfect property to enjoy as a holiday home or to create income.

There is a further building which is ideal for conversion into further accommodation.

The main house is set across two floors and has 3 double bedrooms plus a single bedroom on the first floor and a family bathroom.

On the ground floor is a large entrance hallway, a separate living and dining room, a kitchen and a guest bathroom.

There is a rear garden area with a courtyard and large terrace with BBQ area andf a guest cloakroom/toilet – perfect for parties!

Separate accommodation and adding value…

This building is set across the garden from the main house and also comes with a ground and first floor – both measuring 90M2 and this could be perfect for transforming into further bedrooms for holiday rentals or to create owner’s accommodation whilst retaining the business side and income.

On the ground floor of this additional building is a large room with fireplace plus a guest toilet and on the first floor are two large rooms.

The exact layout that can be achieved is very much down to your imagination and what you want to achieve from the property.

The main house has recently generated an income of around €12,000 but the owner feels that this could easily be doubled with “international” marketing.  In addition, the extra building could easily help to create more income.

Key benefits of this charming home include…

♦  4 bedroom main house with tourism licence

♦  Separate building ripe for conversion/adding value

♦  Garden and terrace areas for BBQ and on street parking

♦  Stone construction and bags of charm and character

♦  Stunning location within the Cordillera Cantábrica León countryside

Stables and land…

For those wishing to enjoy land or even horses, the owner is willing to consider the sale of existing stables which are located approximately 100m from the house for sale.

There are 2 stables and a house in need of reform side by side, they can be bought independently…

◊  1 Stable of 96 m2 ground floor and a straw loft on the first floor plus around 500M2 of land. Price of the stable: €14,000
