Santiago de Gaioso belongs to the Council of Outeiro de Rei, Lugo. The property is located very close to the Ladra River, one of the most trouty of Galicia. Approximately 1km from the property. Also very close to Santiago de Gaioso is Penas de Rodas (about 2 km). It is a cyclopean enclave that the @turgalicia website describes: “The water made the Terra Cha a very productive area and, since ancient times, the communities settled in these more fertile valleys. To thank the goddess Earth and the sun god, surely the ancestors approached the Penas de Rodas, in the town hall of Outeiro de Rei. These two large granite rocks were a place of prehistoric worship and, perhaps, also an astronomical station to set up an agricultural calendar in these fertile lands of Miño.”
We are therefore in the centre of the most magical Galicia. Even the local poet Manuel María dedicated a few words to the surprising enclave.“En Gaioso, ollando a Chá, hai dúas penas ergueitas ¡Semellan non ser verdá redondeces tan ben feitas!” Manuel María, “A Terra Chá”.
The house needs a deep rehabilitation. It is approximately 100 years old. And it takes about 30 years uninhabited. It is located on a flat land bounded by vegetation. Apart from granite walls, there are many original materials that could be reused in rehabilitation. House surface: 140 m2 per floor. In total 280 m2.
Ground floor: stables, kitchen, a bedroom. In the beginning it was all stable and the housing was above, but with a modification it was as it is today. Upstairs: a living room, a bedroom and a large space, which could fit up to three bedrooms. It has a fireplace.
Haystack: where the car was stored and where the granary is.
Land area: almost 3,000 m2. There is a stream that limits the farm on one side. The road for cars passes next to the farm as well. The stone legs of a wooden granary that disappeared are preserved. It has a great variety of trees: oaks, some chestnut and fruit trees: apple trees, plums, pear trees and quince trees.
It has electricity and well water. There is water from the public network that could be connected if desired.
