Casa de Brazinas

A newly renovated 3 or 4 bedroom house.  One section of the house on 1 floor only, and the other section is over 2 floors reaching 180sqm in total.  Sitting on 15.000sqm of land, with a private river.
The land was a large rich farm, with goats, sheep and horses. They made wine, from the two varieties of berries. Farmed corn, grinned on the land by the water wheel, to make bread baked in outside oven, and sold as corn bread.  Also they made cheese. Harvests fruits, nuts and olives and make their own olive oil and chopped their own wood for the fire.
Around the house and the land
The house is on a quite Calder sack, a no through road. Shared with only 2 other houses, one is not habitual.   In a quite tranquil setting, private but no isolated location.  South facing, with amazing views down to the valley. Within walking distance to 3 small quaint hamlets where you will find a shop, bar and café.
Description of land
The land is 15.000sq with fertile terraces, and 1 enormous meadow next to the river and 3.000sqm slopping land is with pine forest.
River runs the whole length of the land, and flows all year around.  It enters the land and splits into 2 rivers one is where we have created a natural swimming bath. The other flow the river falls into a water hole which operates a steel wheel, generates power.
The water from the river, is pumped up and stored into 2 tanks, and gravity fed for daily use.
Adjacent to the house, is a stone walled area,  45sqm Patio which is on the title deeds  (this could easily be made into an annex) with oak trees to bring summer shade and an old restored stone bread/pizza oven.
A huge variety of fruit and nut trees, plum, apple, cherry, quince, 30 olive trees, pear, chestnut, oak, cork oak, pine,  and 400 meters of mature grape vines.
150 sq high fenced animal pen, with separate pens inside.
The property has a Typography report (satellite map) which is registered at the Camera. (Government office) To show the foot print of the house, patio area, and the boundaries of the land. The boundaries of the land have been walked by the neighbors and the lawyer and everyone has signed the document so there will never to be a dispute over who owns the land.
