In the Irixoa area, located within the biosphere reserve As Mariñas-Mandeo area, just 20 minutes from the coast, is this unique property composed of two stone houses that are sold together. The oldest one was reconstructed, starting from another still older, to house a matrimony. Subsequently, another adjoining stone house was acquired and part of the offspring of the original family lived there. To clarify in this description, we will call them the Ancient House and the Modern House.
Both houses are connected by two patios joined by a door. In this patio, we will find a magnificent vine and three granite tables shaped like mushrooms, typical of Galicia. The surfaces of the property are as follows: Old House, including machine room, 230 m2. Modern House, 65 m2. As for the land, it has an area of about 3,000 m2, partly surrounding the houses and other small plots on the other side of the road.
Ancient House in Irixoa
This house has a picnic area at the entrance and a patio with apple trees. Accessing the house, we find a corridor that connects the entrance door with the exit door. This takes us to a second patio where there is the engine room, the granite mushrooms mentioned and the vine. Through this patio, you access the Modern House.
Entering from the patio with the barbecue, we find on the right a living room with a fireplace.
The lower floor comprises (in addition to the dining room) a kitchen with an old-style fire stove and a lareira (typical rural Galician fireside for cooking). In this kitchen, there is a door to a double room with bathroom. There is a spiral staircase that leads to two more floors.
On the upper floor, we find three double bedrooms and a bathroom in the corridor. Going up another four steps we would be in the attic, where there is a window in the roof and enough room for at least three more beds.

On the lower floor, there are two bedrooms: one double and one single; a bathroom with a washing machine.
We take the stairs and on the upper deck are the kitchen-dining room and a bathroom. This plant can also be accessed from the land plot that the property has around these houses, where there are beautiful chestnuts.
The views are spectacular to a lush valley.
