The property is only 70 km away from Madrid, on the outskirts of the cosy municipality of Buitrago, down the mountain pass of Somosierra and in the centre of the Lozoya Valley.
The landscaped plot of 3,000 m² is a pleasant meadow that borders the river and is separated from it by a masonry wall. It has a water well and has a beautiful view of the river, with the walled town in the background. The old bridge and the great medieval castle are still in excellent condition.
The main house was built in 1940 by one of the engineers who built the National I as a family recreation house, with a typical design of the villas of the Madrid mountains of that time. The construction is made of stone masonry with a gabled Arabic tile roof. A unique tower stands out on one side of its facade, with a square plan and slate roof that allows you to enjoy beautiful views of the surroundings.
The house has 500 m² built area distributed over 3 floors. The main entrance of the ground floor is through a porch that gives way to the hall in which there is a stately staircase that branches into two. This floor also has a living room, dining room, 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen with pantry, toilet and storage room. The main floor houses a hall that distributes all units: living room, dining room, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen with pantry and terrace. On the second floor a distributor gives way to an office, library, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, living room and a staircase to the 41 m² tower.
In front of the main house there is a 137 m² building with 3 floors. The basement has a laundry room, boiler room and a coal storage room. The ground floor is the guard's house with porch, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The garage is also located on this floor. The first floor is an open space for a barn and warehouse. Next to this building there is a patio with stairs to the basements and the greenhouse.
This is an excellent property to enjoy the magnificent surroundings offered by the Lozoya Valley and which, due to its distance from the capital, can be converted into a first residence, rural hotel or a property for events.
