This house of the week is an expensive, fully refurbished, detached country house in Albacete, Spain, finished and decorated with earthy, brown tones that blend seamlessly into the surrounding Spanish countryside. For anyone looking for peace and quiet in a remote corner of Spain with all the comfort of a luxury home, this is an opportunity that’s too good to pass up.
The property has two floors and a built surface area of 300 square metres (3,230 square feet), but has lands totalling around 17,000 m2 (over 180,000 sq ft). These lands include extensive green areas, a swimming pool with a seating area in it and a built-in purification system, and a sun deck for those lazy, Spanish afternoons when you can just sit back, relax and soak up some rays.
The décor is simple yet effective, centring around natural wood, clean, whitewashed walls and local stone to create a harmonious and calming atmosphere throughout the whole property. This decorative theme is present in both the interiors and exteriors as the house still has many of the original stones that were used to make the outer walls, maintaining a grounded, rustic look, while at the same time combining with modern additions and renovations for the utmost quality.
There are 6 double bedrooms, four of them with their own en-suite bathrooms, and two additional bathrooms. The living areas, meanwhile, are all built with an open-plan design that joins the kitchen, sitting room and hallway into one unbroken, flowing space. While this property for sale in rural Spain would make a wonderful family home, it is also currently in the application process for a tourist rental license so it can be leased out as a holiday let.
In terms of the technical aspects of the house, it has oil heating and radiators to keep it warm and a heat pump to power the air conditioning, as well as excellent insulation and all the necessary pre-installation features to put in a wood burning stove. All the refurbishment works have been carried out to the highest quality standards and comply with all the legal requirements, and the property comes with all the paperwork in order, including the habitability certificate (cedula de habitabilidad). This rural home for sale in Spain has an asking price of 2,275,000 euros.
