The house on the beautiful plaza in San Silvestre de Guzman was acquired by the seller in 2004. A complete reconstruction of the house took place between 2004 and 2008. The house has a usable area of 194 sqm and features a 40 sqm salon, 6 bedrooms, 1 dressing room, 2 bathrooms, and a 50 sqm patio on the ground floor. The annex comprises 62 sqm and includes 2 patios with a total area of 135 sqm.
During the reconstruction, high-quality materials were used, and efforts were made to preserve the original building fabric while creating a spacious property. The walls are original and have been architecturally redesigned. They consist of 70 centimeters thick clay walls, which are breathable and provide excellent insulation. Additionally, a vapor barrier has been installed at the bottom to prevent moisture from rising.
The roof of the house was raised and insulated using organic materials, ensuring comfort on the upper floor during both summer and winter. The house is well-ventilated, eliminating the need for air conditioning on both the ground and first floors. A sophisticated ground stove ensures pleasant room temperatures in winter, and hot water is generated through solar energy, providing sufficient supply even on overcast days.
The original floor tiles have been preserved in the entrance area, while the rest of the house features clay tiles, wooden floors, or quarry stone mosaic. These floors are also insulated with a vapor barrier at the bottom. The ceiling to the first floor consists of clay tiles, insulation, and a wooden floor above, providing effective sound insulation. The windows and exterior doors are French double-glazed windows.
The first patio serves as a terrace and includes a well with water, as well as a tree bearing numerous lemon fruits. The two lower patios can accommodate additional structures such as holiday flats or a swimming pool, as the land is already designated for construction. The lower exit leads directly to the Campo, an area characterized by wild and picturesque vegetation, extending towards the Rio Guadiana river.
The house is located away from the highway from Castillejos to Ayamonte, ensuring a tranquil environment without car noise. The plaza itself is home to various species of native birds, creating a fantastic soundscape. The church tower is adorned with a pair of storks, and large palm trees stand in front of the front door, enhancing the overall appeal of the location, which is secluded from mass tourism.
Despite its secluded setting, the house is conveniently located, with a 20-minute drive to the beaches of Isla Cristina or Isla Canela near Ayamonte, as well as the picturesque and undeveloped beach of Vila Real de Stock Antonio. By crossing the bridge over the border river into Portugal and passing through the small town of Castro Maria with its Templar castle, one can reach the quietest beach in the Algarve, which is devoid of hotel developments.
The house is situated 15 kilometers away from the motorway access to the A49. Faro airport can be reached within a 50-minute drive, while the beautiful towns of Tavira and the scenic regions of the Alentejo in Portugal are just a 45-minute car journey away. Day trips to Seville and Lisbon are also feasible. In summary, the location of the house is truly fantastic, offering secluded tranquility, an authentic Spanish lifestyle, and access to the most beautiful beaches in Europe. This is an exceptional opportunity for those seeking such a combination.
