Property Description

For sale direct from the owners!

This is a terrific opportunity for multi-generational living for a large or extended family, a holiday rental business or a group of friends to own their own part of this beautiful slice of rural Galicia.

Located in peaceful countryside close to the Camino de Santiago and the beautiful beaches that make Galicia so popular, this collection of three separate houses is ready for new owners to create their own special paradise.

One of the houses is standing and is in pretty good shape structurally and has a secure roof. However, this house will require a full renovation internally. The other two houses fall within an approved project and make use of the existing buildings but are, predominantly, new build homes. The existing structures, where they are being retained, will be solid stone walls of between 60-80cm thick and this gives each of the houses a charm and connection with the environment.

Planning permission and all of the bureaucracy has been taken care of for the two new build houses so you can just get on with finishing the houses as you want or employing the builder to complete the project for you. One of the houses (which needs renovation) will need permission to proceed with these works.

The current owners have already commissioned quotes for the construction work of the existing project and these can be shared with interested buyers.

The sellers are a professional couple who love architecture, design and also this part of Spain – they fell in love with the location and have used their high level of professional understanding to create a unique opportunity.

A little background to the three houses…

Casa Gulfin is the first of the three properties included within the price. This house is set across two floors and offers 166M2 of accommodation. The house is oriented to the South and set within 1.461M2 of land which is flat. The house is in need of a full renovation but the structure appears to be in good condition and the roof too. Internally, the house will require a full modernisation to bring it up to a habitable state.

The next two houses form part of the project which already has approval. This project includes the conversion of the existing buildings and the addition of new build accommodation to create a stylish and modern home but with all the charm and character associated with this area.

Casa Carro is another stone building which has 216M2 of accommodation and sits in a plot of 934M2. Once again, the existing structure is sound and as much of the original property will be kept (it forms the main living room and parking) but some stunning new extensions will be used to add space for modern living, this includes a beautiful kitchen with views across the gardens.

This house benefits from three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite and a guest cloakroom) and some great living space with open views across the flat plot.

Casa Fragua is mostly a new build property which will comprise a total of 185M2 plus an old forge of 17M2 (which is original and offers a huge amount of charm and character). The main house and forge building sit within a land of 1.768M2.

The main house design offers 3 good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom. A second family bathroom serves the other 2 bedrooms and a guest cloakroom is perfect for use during the day.

The living space is light, bright and spacious with views across the gardens and down the valley.

The forge is a detached building of 17M2 forming part of Casa Fragua. Originally used as the forge servicing the local community, the building will be renovated and converted to create a multi purpose space for the owners of Casa Fragua. A separate living space, a garden room or hobby space, it has a number of uses to suit you!

Both of these houses which form the project (Casa Gulfin needs planning permission for the renovation) has allocated parking, terraces connecting the inside with the beautiful land around them and all the benefits of a modern construction mixed with the charm and character of the original stone buildings.

The current owners have estimates for the building work and these can be requested.

Permissions and the project are all in place…   

The beauty of this opportunity is that the hard work has been done for you – the owners have spent a lot of time and money as well as their professional understanding to get all permissions and the project in place for new owners to come in and do the renovation or construction work.

In fact, the owners can also introduce you to a construction company to get all works completed. They can also smooth any issues having made good connections with the team at the local town hall.

Spanish bureaucracy can be a headache but if you buy this property, almost all of the normal stress can be eradicated by utilising the hard work that the current owners have done so far.

Also, if you are worried about not being able to speak Spanish, the current owners can help with this – they speak excellent English!

Why are the current owners selling?

Having spent the last couple of years on this project the current owners are reluctantly selling as they have huge work commitments in Madrid where they live and work.

All of the hard work to move this project along has been done and what is left is the construction in whatever form you wish that to take – it could be a DIY renovation/new build for those who have a certain level of competency or a more professional construction project by local builders.

In fact, the owners are also willing to sell the Stone House separately at a cost of €89.000 which means that there is a degree of flexibility and allows the two new build houses under the project can be purchased for €100.000.

Galicia – a magical part of Spain…

Spain is huge and there are so many hidden treasures that many foreign visitors and those looking to make a new home in Spain, miss out on.

Galicia is located in the northwest of Spain and has one of the most dramatic coastlines in the whole country…a connection with beaches, stunning woodland and a natural beauty which is hard to imagine if you have not visited.

Galicia offers unspoiled nature, stunning food and culture and yet also the benefits of city life in La Coruña with all of the facilities needed for modern life.

Santiago de Compostela is a world-renowned destination for religious pilgrims, tourists and the simply curious. This complex of properties is located a short distance to the road to Santiago and offers great walking opportunities in the area.

Whilst Gulfin itself has no facilities, a short drive brings you to Feira Do Tres, a village with a pharmacy, 2 restaurants/bars, an agricultural shop and a very famous bakery offering some of the best bread and pastries available. The town of Miño is approximately 9km (less than 10mins) and has a wide range of banks, several supermarkets, shops, many restaurants, health center, etc. There is also a bus service to Miño with a bus stop just 300m from Gulfin.
