4 bedrooms – 4 bathrooms – 2 kitchens – stunning character features – historic building, once the village grape press – 290m2 garden – separate section for renovation – heart of village

A simply gorgeous, historic house, bursting with original features and character and steeped in local history, this beautiful property, a living museum to times gone by, would work well as a guest house with potential to renovate a section to make further rooms or two apartments.

This property is one of the most beautiful and unusual properties I have seen in twenty years of working in this business!  It oozes charm and its features would delight any home and garden magazine!  It is a true treasure, as well as being a home and a potential source of income for any new owner in the heart of one of the loveliest and most convenient villages in the area.

A little bit of history!
Once one of the most important buildings in the village, this original ‘Lagar’ (grape/wine press) was where the locals would come to crush their grape crops to make wine, or to collect and buy wine and bread.  The locals often speak about how the children were sent over to refill jugs and buy freshly baked bread from a bread oven that unfortunately no longer exists, but still with tell-tale signs around the house of these activities from a bygone age.  Huge barrels were kept in the press area and the wine was syphoned out by sucking on a tube and then letting the liquid pour into the jugs.  Many locals still remember their parents working at the lagar, sometimes thirty hour shifts at a time when the grapes, grown in the fields just above the building, were ripe and ready to pick.

Today, Lagar de Las Flores is a stunning village home and is divided into three sections.

Section 1 is the main house, the owners’ private living area: 112.45m2 plus garden of 289m2.
To the front of the house is a glorious, flower- filled, sunny front terrace, overlooking the picturesque street. This is the ideal spot to watch the people walking by (be prepared to be photographed by the tourists as they capture their snapshots whilst walking by) and to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine and chat to the locals and neighbours.  The front door leads into the first of an number of delightful rooms in this beautiful home, a dining room and living room area (15.3m2) with an open plan, fully fitted kitchen to the left (6.45m2).  The living room has a cosy woodburner for winter evenings, original ceilings with painted beams and cane detail, and exposed stone walls.  An opening in the rear wall leads to an additional living room area (6.8m2), which is so pretty and comfortable, one feels immediately like curling up on the sofa with a good book or a mug of coffee!  Everywhere are original features – amazingly thick stone walls, wooden shuttered windows, beams, beautiful floors…

From the living room area one walks through to an inner hallway, past the stairs, and past original features including a beautiful wood and glass cabinet set deep into the wall, so typical of the older houses in this area, and a deep nook, under the stairs, with original beam and cane features. Beyond, through original, white-painted double wooden doors, is an area that was originally the grape press area.  Here we find a useful utility area, a beautiful bathroom (3.55m2) and the downstairs bedroom (13.65m2).  Also here is the amazing original ‘lagar’, where the grapes were crushed to make wine, now with a little water fountain.  It rises high into the air, with a central collection tray and channels to syphon the juice into barrels.

From this rear section, a door leads out to a little rear patio, which is ideal for the Summer, as it is shaded, quiet, and totally private.  From here steps lead up to what the current owners call their “sky garden”, as it is high above the property.  Consisting of a pretty area planted with plenty of flowering bushes and plants, this is a quiet, green oasis of calm in the centre of the village.  There is a path that leads from the back of the garden around the outside of the premises, joining to a side street.  It could be possible to reinstate this path, with a garden gate, for access for anyone staying in the three large rooms described in Section 3 below.

Section 2 is the upstairs part of the house – the guest house.  This section is accessed either via the stairs from the ground floor, or via its own entrance from the side street, leading into a beautiful walled patio garden full of flowering plants.  This lovely patio garden is 24m2 and leads up to a covered terrace area, a true chill-out area (19.50m2).  To the rear of the covered terrace is a very useful store room, ideal for putting away items not needed at certain times of year (4.65m2).  From the covered terrace, a door leads past the stairs (which can be totally closed up if no access to downstairs is preferred) into a hallway (6.27m2).  Once again, even this little room is beautiful and inviting.  From here we have access to all three ensuite guest rooms, and a shared living room and kitchen/dining area, which could, if anyone preferred, be converted into a fourth ensuite guest bedroom.  The bedrooms vary in size from 8m2 to 11.85m2 each with bathrooms of between 2.4m2 and 2.95m2.

Section 3 – this area requires renovation – perhaps to make one, or two, self catering studio apartments.  Further around the side street is the entrance to these three large rooms.  Ideally, the first room (14m2), which gives access to the other two, could be made into a beautiful, cosy reception room, and the other two large rooms (24m2 and 20.4m2) could each become a self contained studio unit.

The combination of three guest rooms, all sharing a kitchen and living room area, and two additional self contained studios offers the potential for a very profitable and satisfying little business for anyone wishing for a new lifestyle in a beautiful and friendly village in the best climate in Europe!
