About this country house
For sale direct from the owners!
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a new passive solar heated Eco home built from straw bales and a Eucalyptus post and beam frame.
Part of an ecological project, this detached country home is located in the village of Llanez, a small rural community which enjoys glorious countryside, peace and tranquillity. If a bustling location is your dream then this house isn’t for you but despite the peaceful location, it is not isolated – local villages, towns and even the popular resort town of Santander are within easy reach.
Why we feel this Eco opportunity should not be missed…
♦ A rare opportunity to create a sustainable and Eco credible future…
♦ Built with sustainable materials with hardly any need of heating
♦ Beautiful mountain and valley views
♦ Peaceful location in a small rural village community
♦ Close to the sea, beaches and cities such as Laredo, Santander and Bilbao
♦ Good communications – Internet and modern comforts
♦ Fitted kitchen and bathroom
The property is part of an ecological project which includes 2 other properties – the adjoining property can also be bought and would make a great opportunity for extended family to enjoy the eco life or to create a home and a separate rental for eco visitors.
The property is built with a Eucalyptus post and beam structure with straw bale infills and finished with a cob plaster.
The property is super insulated to ensure that the requirement for heating is minimized as is the need for cooling in the heat of summer. The house will be completed with all the usual amenities to enable a comfortable modern life including electrical services, water supply and an Eco, septic tank facility. This is not camping – this is a high quality and modern eco home which will enable new owners to live in comfort but in the knowledge that they are helping the environment and creating a sustainable lifestyle.
In addition to the current building, permission is also in place for an additional building of 80M2 which can be built to add to the accommodation.
The layout of the property…
This is currently left as an open plan space so that new owners can choose the exact configuration of the property.
There is a separate bathroom and space for a kitchen.
A garage is separate to the main house and offers a further 60M2 – currently, this is open on two sides but this could easily be enclosed to create further accommodation.
The garage has two light wells to allow light into the area and it is built to the same high standards of Eco sustainability as the main house.
Gardens and land
The plot the house sits on is 2,200M2 which is just over half an acre – the perfect space to create a self-sufficient garden and grow your own vegetables.
The views from the land are glorious – down the Aras valley, the property has a southerly aspect and is surrounded by unspoilt countryside.
There is even a small river at the bottom of the land.
The property is located close to the small hamlet of Llanez and it is important to understand that there are no facilities within walking distance. This is an area of outstanding beauty and tranquillity but it isn’t isolated – local villages are within easy reach for daily needs and the larger towns are a short drive away.
The nearest shop and bar are in Badames, a short 5min drive away. There is also a school, Pharmacy, post office, bank and supermarket here as well as more specialist shops and amenities.
The property is just 35mins from Santander (great for the ferry services to the UK and Ireland) and just 50mins to the city of Bilbao.
If you like beach life, the curving bay of Laredo is just 15mins away. Laredo is also home to a great hospital and lots of amenities you would expect from a good size town. It is also next to the Natural Park and is an attractive place to visit at any time of year.
