This is an extremely spacious traditional Galician stone country house with huge potential to be either converted into a hotel with up to 15 bedrooms, or subdivided into two or three large holiday apartments with separate entrances, or can simply be enjoyed as a beautiful large family home.

There are views on all sides of the house over the adjacent church, the valley and water meadows. All rooms are bright and sunny with good ceiling heights, wood flooring, and chestnut shutters to the windows. The sitting room opens onto a south facing balcony with beautiful views over the orchard and surrounding valley. A wooden spiral staircase with mahogany banisters leads to the ground and upper floors.

The property has been been partly restored and the roof has also been completely renovated with traditional 'fish scale' slate roof in recent years. The accommodation is set over 3 floors - the first floor being mostly restored, but still requires some additional work to make it habitable, the upper floor and ground floor are both in original condition and un-renovated, and are laid out as follows:

Ground Floor: Originally the stables, this floor comprises of seven large rooms, most with earth floors, and the original kitchen with a traditional bee-hive bread oven that is large enough to stand up in. It has an entrance hall inside the front door and a side door to the garden.

First Floor: The accommodation comprises Kitchen (20' x 13'), Dining room (22' x 13'), Sitting room (22' x 22'), Office/ library (15' x 15'). Bedroom 1 (18' x 10?) Bedroom 2 (18' x 10') Bedroom 3 (18' x 12') Bedroom 4 (12' x 12') Bedroom 5/dressing room (10' x 12') Bathroom.

Upper Floor: This is entirely unrestored and comprises of 5 large rooms. The roof is steeply pitched so that some have ceiling heights of 10 feet.

Outside there is a small formal walled garden at the front of the house with flowering shrubs and fruit trees. On the sides and to the rear of the house is a further acre of garden, with an orchard and small field. The orchard has apple, pear, almond, and cherry trees, and a giant kiwi vine. The rear garden also contains a chicken run and a double garage.

The house has mains electricity, and has a free water supply from a village source of good quality and very high pressure, and its own working well.

In a lovely location and with good access, the property is just 7km from a white sandy beach, and 8km from the town of Ortiguiera, which has a weekly market, health centre, library, swimming pool, and a theatre. Ortiguiera also hosts the annual Celtic World music festival which attracts up to 75,000 people every year. The local rivers have trout and sea trout fishing. Other local activities include riding, kayaking, walking and birdwatching. Santiago and Coruña airports are within 1½ hour's drive away.
