House for sale in La Bisbal d'Empordà, Spain
This charming and stylish Costa Brava country house for sale is situated in an exclusive, hillside location in the heart of the countryside and yet is within 15 minutes of the prestigious coastline of the Costa Brava. The property is divided into several houses. The buildings date back to the 17th Century and were under the same ownership until the current owners bought the property. The property has been restored to an exceptionally high level, primarily in terms of style. The present owners have focused on re-creating an original piece of Ampurdán history with an artistic feel. The result is a unique rustic property with an air of Boho-chic. Each of the doors, fixtures and fittings, has been carefully chosen to maintain a rustic feel to every space within the buildings. One of the bathroom sinks, for example, is a piece from an old local factory. The house features in many magazines. The property is made up as follows: Main house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; 2 separate guest houses each with 2 bedrooms; 2-bedroom caretaker's house. It also boasts a cellar for wines produced by the vines on the plot, a machine room, a room housing the wine-making facilities, and a covered garage area at the entrance with space for around 7 cars. This stylish country house has a large open terrace for al fresco dining, and each separate house also has its own private terrace. There is a well for irrigation and a propane gas heating system. There are radiators throughout and air conditioning in the main living area. The land in front of the property is currently used as an eco area providing abundant fresh vegetables maintaining the theme of authentic country living. The property enjoys excellent access. There is a train station just a 5 minute drive away with direct links to Barcelona and the French border, Girona airport is 30 minutes away, Barcelona is a 1 hour 20 minute drive, and the nearest local village is just 5 minutes away on foot (with a restaurant and convenience shop).
