RASQUERA. LARGE MASIA WITH TOURIST LICENSE 525 000€ Ref: 063B/20 Lovingly restored over the last 20 years, the history of Casa Pio is evident in the many original features still to be seen at the property.
From the little hand print pushed into the plaster on the stairs (next to the date 1881), to the huge traditional cisterna which once provided water for the large flocks of goats that lived on-site, this is a property which has been loved and worked for centuries.
Today the 7.2 hectare (72.937m2) property contains a peaceful and beautifully restored 4 bedroom home with a 2 bedroom guest cottage; games room, walled courtyard garden, huge organically shaped swimming pool, large workshop, fenced vegetable garden, olive groves and so much more.
A HUTTE tourist license with a cedula allowing 13 people to stay on-site allows this property to also make an income as an idyllic holiday let. The main house and cottage have been popular tourist lets for over 10 years.
Approached via a short track in the middle of the Burga Valley, the property is bordered by a broad stone wall to the back, with the old threshing circle now providing ample parking space between the 45m2 original stone workshop and the 300m2 renovated house.
To the back of the house is a large paved area, established rockery garden and separate entrance to the guest cottage. Established plants and bushes screen the rest of the property from the track and parking area.
The house is accessed via a large arched doorway to the back, which leads into the main house through the entrance hall (with the original casita to the right) or from the front of the house via a screened porch leading into the original farm kitchen with it´s exposed wooden beams and french doors.
This property perfectly juxtaposes old and new, so while the original and locally sourced encaustic and handmade terracotta tiles, exposed wooden beams, pointed stone walls and reclaimed shuttered windows add character, the house also benefits from an insulated roof, central heating, screened windows, en-suite bathrooms, and French oak flooring upstairs.
The property is also connected to mains agricultural water, so while the cisterna water can be used for the vegetable garden and plants close to the house, there is never a shortage of water for the house, pool and if need be, the olive groves.
The ground floor layout has the farmhouse kitchen and porch to the right of the building, with views over the property and to the beautiful Cardo-Boix mountains to the front.
From the kitchen there is a doorway leading to the entrance hall, to the back, which connects the main house to the rental cottage via the games room. Doors on either end of the games room provide the opportunity to close it off from the main house or guest cottage if needed.
Another arched doorway from the kitchen leads into the split-level living and dining room to the front of the house. Large french doors to the left of the living room lead into the romantic walled courtyard garden, with its fishpond, tiled floor, BBQ area and covered dining area.
To the back of the courtyard there is access to the games room and guest cottage, which each have french doors opening into it.
From the courtyard one can walk straight out to the large decked pool area and gardens to the front of the property, as well as to one of the three olive orchards, other part of the property or straight out into the countryside.
The second floor of the 4 bedroom family home is accessed via the original staircase in the kitchen which leads to the oldest part of the house or via a staircase in the corner of the lounge.
From the right, the house has a twin bedroom to the back, with the family bathroom to the front of the house.
Across to the landing are three more bedrooms, a double with Juliette balcony to the back, another double to the back with en-suite and running along the front of the house the 25m2 main bedroom with arched windows, a private roof terrace, large en-suite and views across the property and to the countryside beyond.
The guest cottage on the far left of the house has it´s own private track, walled garden and access to the pool area. The two bedroom cottage has a central living room and kitchen with wood burning stove and a tiled shower room. The main bedroom has french doors into the courtyard, with views across to the mountains.
The external laundry room is to the back of the house close to the guest cottage.
This is a romantic and beautiful property in a privileged sunny position. It has two solar systems, one for the house and one for the pool, with a large back up generator if ever needed.
The property is being sold with a spacious mobile home with it´s own facilities on site.
The nearest villages of Rasquera and El Perello are less than 15 minutes away, while the Costa Daurada beaches are 20 minutes from the property. Reus airport is around 45 minutes drive.
