This unique property is located in As Somozas, A Coruña. Its name: Villa Argentina. Its history deserves an explanation. Doña Argentina was a widowed lady who, in the 1950s, came from Cuba. And she brought an idea: to build a house next to the one where her deceased husband had been born. It was a 200-year-old stone house. Therefore, this property of As Somozas consists of two houses. An old stone house renovated, and a house built in the 1950s that is a beautiful Indian style or colonial house.
The colonial house
The colonial house has about 220 m2 spread over two floors, 90 m2 per floor, plus a diaphanous attic. This can be used and has about 40 m2 of a surface. It also has an added garage of 70 m2 with an exit to a sidewalk that surrounds the house. In the garden, there is a barbecue and a beautiful vine.
On the ground floor, a magnificently furnished dining room. A full bathroom. A full kitchen with wood stove included. And a living-dining room. The marble stairs are beautiful.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms. One with a vintage style bathroom ensuite. And a small cabinet overlooking the garden and a patio.
The house has two entrances, front and back. It has 5,000 m2 of land, with a removable pool. Water comes from a network and an artesian well. This house has a lot of charm, for its architectural style and for its decoration. It is sold furnished, by the way.
A house of 200 years
The 200-year-old stone house has 70 m2 of surface area for each of its two floors; that is 140 m2 in total. Plus a space for the bread oven, where -by dimensions- it is possible to store a car. It has a dog house. There is a hórreo, laundry under the hórreo, woodshed, and a chicken coop with two entrances.
On the ground floor of this stone house, we find a kitchen with typical Bilbao cooker. It communicates with a living room that has a bar installed. Here parties and balls could be held, as in the past. This space has access to a backyard of the house that accesses the garden. From the kitchen, you can also access the oven area and possible garage.
The top floor is accessed by beautiful wooden stairs. All the floor of this plant is in wood in perfect condition. And the ceiling too, impeccable. At this moment, the house is divided by artificial walls that can easily be dispensed with. It has four bedrooms, one of them with a full bathroom ensuite. And a hall where you could put a small living room and a small office.
It is a stone house for what the imagination of the buyer creates. From a spectacular guest house to a house for parties…
