This manor house to reform is called “Pazo de Altamira“, and its origins probably date back to the 18th century. It is located in Cumeiro, less than 3 km from the town of Vila de Cruces (5,300 inhabitants), Pontevedra. This enclave is practically the heart of Galicia. At a crossroads between three provinces: Pontevedra, Lugo and A Coruña. Only 30 minutes from Santiago de Compostela and its international airport. Only one hour separates this property from the coast in the Ría de Arousa. And the same time is needed to reach the city of Lugo. In addition, the Camino de Santiago Francés runs very close.
A manor house to reform and turn it into a wonder
The reform to carry out in this pazo is integral. It is currently not habitable. You have the possibility of incorporating all the necessary services – water, electricity, sanitation – and it would only be needed to update all the connections. It is a stone building that retains its original tile roof, although it also needs repairs. It has two floors of 150 m2 each, that is, 300 m2 built in total. Part of the whole of the pazo, it constitutes a baroque chapel of approximately 50 m2.
On the ground floor, it has three bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom and the kitchen. This one had one of the most beautiful lareiras (traditional cooker of the Galician rustic houses, which worked with firewood) of Galicia, made in granite. It is currently boarded up, but could recover without major problems. On the upper floor, there are three other bedrooms, another bathroom and also a living room that communicates with the chapel outside the building.
This manor house to reform is located on a land of 103,000 m2. In it we find several buildings. An horreo (the typical Galician granary), a haystack divided into several spaces and a storage room. The place where this pazo to reform stay is known as A Carballeira, in Spanish, the oak grove. This gives an idea of the type of trees that are most abundant on the land. Although there are also some fruit trees, mainly apple trees, and other trees.
Additionally, and out of the price, 180,000 m2 of farms nearby can be purchased: two of them are large and the rest smaller.
This manor house to reform was inhabited permanently until the decade of 1980. First by the illustrious family that required to build it, composed of politicians, judges and lawyers well known in his time. And then by the housekeepers themselves who were responsible for maintaining the building while possible. Today it offers, for a more than reasonable price, and with reforms that could be undertaken totally or gradually many possibilities.
This property lends itself to multiple uses. It can become a family home with ample space for everyone. An ecological farm would also fit in its more than 25,000 m2 of land and several buildings. Or a tourist business, given its proximity to the Camino de Santiago and Santiago de Compostela itself.
