The construction of the well-known Indiano's houses on the Cantabrian coast is characterized by its combination of several building styles using new architectural trends of that era. Generally, they are newly-designed houses with an attractive colonial style, consisting of large and comfortable rooms with views of the outside and with many decorative elements in their façades.
This unique building was built in 1886 to be used as a family home, although it accommodated the Marine Assistantship. The main façade features two cast iron columns that support the stone floor of the upper level with a balustrade and wooden doors. On both sides, there are two gazebos, also made of cast iron, a material used as a decorative element at that time.
The house has a built area of 822m2 divided over three floors and a loft. It is possible to access the interior through a staircase from the garden, and the rooms still preserve many of its original elements.
The outside space has an area of 800m2 and is surrounded by a stone wall with a decorative iron fence. The back of the house has a large wooden terrace on the first floor and access to the garden.
Another advantage is its strategic location in the centre of Ribadeo, which increases the possibilities of turning it into both a family home and a small charming hotel, very close to the amazing coast of Lugo and its beaches.
