This is a particular type of palace home built between the 17th and 18th centuries as a result of the trading activities with the Indies. They were adapted to the requirements of domestic life and at the same time they represented the prosperity and aesthetic tastes of rich merchants that settled in the area and were known as Shippers to the Indies. The current property was built in 1732 and has a façade made of stone and embellished with a beautiful coat of arms in the corner, facing two streets, several large access gates with original studded doors and iron window grills.
The house retains the original structure, it has two floors and a total surface area of 440m². The main door gives access to a marble paved entrance hall with coffered wooden ceiling that leads to the traditional Andalusian patio. Around the patio there is a corridor with arches on two of the sides and it facilitates the entrance to all the rooms in the house. On the ground floor there is a large dining room with fireplace, two bedrooms with bathroom, kitchen with pantry, courtesy toilet and an original cellar coated with shell limestone, a very beautiful construction element typical from the Bay of Cadiz. The main staircase provides access to the first floor and ends in a landing the leads to the large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and living room with fireplace, and to a pleasant U-shaped terrace that includes a service area. There is also a staircase that connects to the kitchen and the garden area.
The ornamental elements and the materials used in the renovation have been meticulously chosen to preserve the noble character of the construction and the cosy and cheerful essence of the Andalusian houses.
The property is located in the centre of the distinguished city of El Puerto de Santa María, known as the city of a hundred palaces and one of the most iconic cities in Andalucia.
