Between Monterroso and Palas de Rei, in Lugo, there is this beautiful stone house to be renovated inside. Both towns are important centres in the central area of the province. They are in the region called A Ulloa, it is the land that is irrigated by the River Ulla, famous for its great fishing bits. Both, Monterroso and Palas, have a similar population of around 3,500 inhabitants. They therefore have all the necessary services. Although Palas de Rei, where the French Way of Saint James runs, is only 5 km away, the council to which this property belongs is Monterroso, 7 km away.
It is a house made entirely of stone, well preserved on the outside. The roof and walls are in good condition. The windows are modern, made of aluminium. But the interior needs a complete rehabilitation. The distribution is very simple. It has two floors of about 80 m2 each one. On the ground floor, there are the old stables, ready to be converted into a big living room, bedrooms or whatever the new owners need. We can also see the old kitchen, where the lareira still remains, the open firewood kitchen typical of the old country houses in Galicia. And a stone sink, made of granite in one piece.
The upper floor houses two rooms, which in another time would have served as bedrooms. Although it needs a deep reform, the possibilities it offers are many. The house has water and electricity.
Outside, there is a front yard with an open barn also in stone, with beautiful granite columns in one piece.
