It is rare to have ‘the-best-of-both-worlds’ scenario
♦ In a countryside location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and mountain ranges yet on ‘Urban’ land with all the benefits this brings.
♦ Located in the countryside yet able to walk to bars and restaurants.
♦ Located in the countryside yet only 20 mins’ drive into a major city (Santander).
♦ Cantabrian styling within the villa to include wood and stone, yet the clean crisp lines of modern living without the cold feel of very contemporary architecture.
♦ The rare opportunity located in the countryside (because of being on the very edge of an ‘Urban’ area, is the opportunity to keep a lot of garden around you or, build more residential accommodation. Build pretty much what you want and need yet keep your view!
♦ Permissible by Spanish land laws (because of the Urban classification of the land), is the construction of a dug-in concrete and steel swimming pool that is fully tiled. Also, a pool house for the filtration system and even a pool side shower room with w.c. Can be built with a permit from the local town hall. Currently, the property has an above ground pool that is used for the summer months and can be folded and stored during the winter.
Built to Northern European standards and to a layout they prefer – yet keeping Cantabrian charm and style
The layout of the villa is that favoured by Northern Europeans with superb flow for comfortable and practical family living. All the rooms are huge (even the bedrooms and bathrooms) . The ceiling height throughout the villa is 2.70M. The windows are massive ‘picture windows,’ being floor to ceiling in the living room plus many glazed doors take you outside -definitely this house invites the outside in!). The Northern Europeans won’t be disappointed when they see the huge laundry/utility room that will make anyone envious and there are massive storage facilities in the eaves of the property. The kitchen is so big it can accommodate not only a central island but also a table and chairs. The kitchen flows through double doors to the dining end of the enormous lounge/dining room, with patio doors and picture windows making your feel you are dining outside on a winter’s day. Virtually every room on the ground floor has glazed doors that immediately immerses you into the fabulous mature garden that surrounds the house and encourages the eye to the distant countryside & mountain ranges.
The house has 3 large rooms for any use you desire… On the ground floor there is currently a home office with a bathroom & door/entrance from the front porch (would be ideal for hairdressing, the practice of alternative medicine or beauty treatments). Any kind of business where the public visit the property would benefit from this room. Another huge room on the ground floor with picture windows (currently a language school class room) would make an amazing hobby room, artist studio or incredible playroom for children. On the first floor is a bedroom that is currently used as a study.
Then there is the huge wrap around covered alfresco lounging and dining area that enables you to live outside all summer and enjoy the warmth with friends and family or perhaps, paying guests? Off this covered alfresco dining/lounging area is a kind of courtyard where the above ground collapsible swimming pool is located.
Building a proper dug in swimming pool is permissible by law on the ‘Urban’ land surrounding the property
If this is your wish, you can build as large a pool as you want in whatever shape you desire! This is permissible because of the ‘Urban’ classification of the land.
