This idyllic country horse farm and home near Cuenca have charm, character, and gorgeous mountain and valley views.
The 4-bedroom, 3-bath property is located about 30 minutes east of Cuenca in an area known as LaBrados. The land is 5000 sq. meters (1.2 acres), with a 360 sq. meter house (3875 sq. feet), and an 80 sq. meter (861) stable, plus an 80 sq. meter dog kennel. There are also beautiful fenced-in paddocks for riding, a tack room, an outdoor kitchen, outside storage, gorgeous mountain trails, majestic pine trees and ever-changing views.
The 10-year old home is still a “work in progress” with small fixes like upgrades in the bathrooms, but it is oozing with a country allure reminiscent of an old Western movie. Original wood and slate floors, a wood and brass staircase, a bar for entertaining, a good-sized kitchen with granite countertops and hand-crafted wooden cabinets and glass front cupboards, a large open concept living and dining area with vaulted ceilings and wooden beams, make this a great relaxation and entertaining area. The living room has a working fieldstone fireplace and windows reflecting the outdoor beauty, and the dining room is large enough for a table of eight. The first floor also includes a social bath and storage area.
Upstairs are the three bedrooms. The master is en-suite, while the two guest rooms share a 2nd bathroom. There is also a large 3rd floor loft, big enough for a king-size bed, and a grand seating area. Adjacent to the loft is an outdoor space that could easily be converted to an outdoor patio with views of the surrounding areas and the beautiful property.
Outside are the outdoor kitchen, a tack room, stables, and a dog kennel, a laundry room, as well as paddocks and trails. Lovely flower gardens and ornamental stone features, as well as a red-tiled roof surround the home.
A satellite provides TV and high-speed Internet capabilities. There is a river and the home has water rights, plus spring-fed water for irrigation. Drinking water comes from the Municipality, as does electricity. There are 12 gas tanks averaging approximately $36 per month.
The asking price for this idyllic country horse farm and home with charm, character, and gorgeous mountain and valley views is $239,000
