Barquilla de Pinares
Originally the local school and the church but now converted into a large country house (complete with the original church bell) in a beautiful rural location a few minutes south of Villanueva de la Vera on the southern slopes of the Sierra de Gredos mountains. The house which is more than 250 sq m has a large covered front veranda, an entrance hall, large living room with good views of the mountains, high wooden ceilings and a large fireplace, a large kitchen/dining room, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The property also has mains electricity and oil fired central heating. It sits in just under 19,000 sq m (nearly 5 acres) of flat, fenced land with excellent access and has oaks, elms, willows and pines and a variety of fruit trees and bushes and there is also a swimming pool and a garage. The house is perfectly habitable now but would certainly benefit from some small amount of modernisation and TLC.
