A clear example of the traditional manor house in La Mancha, with a large façade to the street. In this case, the property has been renovated in the style of a Neo-Classical palace, with pure lines and symmetrical proportions. The noble area of the house is clearly defined, with a double row of ionic columns and window and balcony grills, while the part for the labour has a large wooden door, stone lintel and it is rendered in a different colour. This part of the building is listed as National Heritage and it dates back to the 19th century.
Inside, it also retains the original layout and the dwelling is developed around a large Renaissance arched patio that can be accessed from the entrance hallway. There is also the typical Mediterranean atrium, surrounded by galleries supported on columns that provide access to the rooms on the ground floor and the stairs leading to the upper floor. On this floor it is worth highlighting the cinema screen, a space for a bar and a unique heated swimming pool, as well as a bedroom with bathroom, toilet and kitchen. The rooms on the top floor are distributed around the corridor that leads to the patio, which is very bright thanks to the clear skylight covering the it, equipped with an electric cover to protect from sunlight. On this noble floor there are 4 bedrooms with bathroom, dining room, two reception rooms with fireplace, dinning room with pantry and ironing room. There is also a nice open terrace facing the old pens. The highlight of the house are the excellent materials used in the renovation, the wide spaces and the amazing and carefully manicured decoration that emphasizes the magnificence of this construction. The property has heating with radiant floors, automatic blinds and a wonderful woodwork, with made-to-measure furniture in all the rooms. The renovation project was completed in 2008 and the project was intended as a representation of the existing classical order blended with Neo-Baroque decorative elements that convey the exuberant dramatic approach so representative of designers such as Christopher Guy, among others.
In the original area dedicated to pens and farming rooms, there is a large central patio with a stone floor and a porch with wooden coffered ceiling supported on stone columns that can be accessed from the main building and from the garage. In the old stables and hay loft there is a large social hall with kitchen and bar areas including industrial appliances, a hall with a traditional wood oven and al old kitchen with fireplace. In the old hayloft there are two large halls. From this area it is possible to access an infinity pool with solarium, offering a nice view over the entire town.
As the current owners mentioned, the property belonged to the Mendoza family, patrons of the Spanish Renaissance, and it has also been a convent and a hospital belonging to the military and religious order of Calatrava.
The property is located in the historic quarters of Alcazar de San Juan, a town from the times of Cervantes, in the heart of La Mancha and just 155km from Madrid.
