Occasionally, you can find houses for sale that are unique due to their design or their history. But today we present to you this especially different property because of its magnificent garden – the largest in Spain and probably in Europe. It comprises an area of 10 hectares full of woods and gardens and a house of more than 1,000 m2, thanks to the time and dedication of its owner, José Rivera de Larraya, founder of Panrico.
The property has been on the market for some time, although it is now on offer for 3.9 million euros. The house boasts 1,100 m2, including 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and up to six living rooms. But the most spectacular part is not the inside, but the outside. In this 14-hectare site, 10 hectares are dedicated exclusively to landscaped areas with almost 570 varieties of plants and trees from all over the world. You can also find lakes, fountains and even antiques.
This garden is known as “Jardines de Asturias”, “Jardines de la Fonte Baixa de Luarca (Asturias)” or more commonly as “Jardines de Panrico”, because they were founded and created by José Rivera de Larraya, one of the founders of the Panrico company.
In 2014, the property was already on the market for around 9 million euros, and now it is for sale again for almost 4 million euros.
To appreciate its magnitude, this private but publicly accessible garden is larger than the 8-hectare Botanical Garden in Madrid and the 2.4-hectare Claude Monet Gardens.
The story of Panrico's founder and his love for Luarca has already been told several times. The businessman gradually expanded his property in the area, buying up to 58 farms in the surrounding area and making his own the entire valley to create this spectacular and beautiful park and botanical garden.
