Property description

This historic late 19th Century stone house was fully re-built in the 1990’s by a professional couple. Casa El Cau has five bedrooms and three bathrooms; four bedrooms and a bathroom on the middle floor with another en-suite in the full size attic. One bedroom is set-up as a studio with lovely morning light. Spacious open-plan ground floor dining and living area with a large fireplace, and a country style kitchen with traditional ceramic floor and cast-iron range. 180 m² total usable area, with additional stone barn and workshop.

The generous, open plan master bedroom in the attic suite occupies the whole top floor, with its own library, sitting area, dressing space and ensuite bathroom. The sitting area has a large gallery window with morning light and mountain views.

The main house has secondary glazing throughout, and the attic has a double-glazed gallery window, facing east. Additional spaces include a stone workshop and two-storey stone barn, both semi-renovated and are watertight with windows. The south facing outside terrace has a covered area and a walled garden with excellent soil where the owners produce apples, fruit and vegetables, as well as having bees.

It’s mountain setting in Peñamellera Alta is in a small hamlet with good privacy to the garden and terrace. Mountains on both sides with the Cuera range to the North and views to the South facing the Picos de Europa mountains.

There is good access from the highway at Unquera, only half an hour away coming through the beautiful Cares gorge. Santander airport is less than an hour away (95 km), and the historic towns of Oviedo, Avilés and Gijón are an hour and half away. The pretty seaside town of Llanes is less than an hour (55 km) and San Vicente de la Barquera and nearby beaches are only half an hour away.

The larger of the two additional stone barns has a 30 m² built footprint, is two-storey, semi-renovated and could be turned into a guest apartment. The roof is done and insulated, and there is a kitchen. It’s sunny facade opens onto the terrace and garden area. The smaller of the two stone barns has over 25 m² built footprint with thick stone walls, 3 to 4.5 metres height at the eaves and direct street access. It is set-up as a workshop and has power and water. The attic bedroom suite has a west facing wall which could be opened up to benefit from afternoon light and sunsets.
