Tucked away in a sheltered corner abutting woodland, this traditionally built house enjoys sweeping rural views over pine-clad hillsides, yet is only a 20 minute walk downhill to the pretty cove beach of Tamariu, with a good selection of seafront bars and restaurants. Bustling Palafrugell with its daily markets is a 10 minute drive away whilst Begur with its castle and narrow streets is close by.
With extensive use of wood and ceramics, a spacious and comfortable interior is set off by an eye catching wide curving staircase sweeping down from the top entrance above, past bedrooms on the first floor to the living area and kitchen below. Designed very much with a country ‘masia’ in mind, but with light modern touches, the handmade cupboards and tiled worktops of the kitchen blend tastefully with the cherry wood doors and light ceramic floors throughout the house, and as the emphasis is very much on outside living, patio doors from the living room open onto a choice of terraces.
Further around, the wide swimming pool deck within the garden area enjoys lovely views. To complement the natural surroundings of the area, the subtly coloured pool adjoins one side of the house and facing south-west benefits from the best of the late afternoon sun which often sets spectacularly behind the hillside opposite.
