Casona Palacio de Fios | country mansion mountain views

Asturias, Arriondas, Fios

Property Description

This elegant, listed XIX century stone palace sits above the historic village of Fios and enjoys mountain views on all sides. This ‘Casona’ and estate; consists of over 1000 sqm of built accommodation including the main house, service house, ‘Llagar’ – a traditional cider making stone barn, stables and garages, on an estate of 10,000 sqm (part of which is buildable) within the protected area of natural beauty of ‘El Sueve’ mountain range.

The three storey, 25 room main house of over 600 sqm was recently sympathetically renovated maintaining the original features including the coat of arms. It also has a full width glazed gallery of over 50 sqm facing the evening sun beyond the mountains, and an exterior covered dining terrace. The principal accommodation consists of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, including the principal bedroom suite with three balconies and ensuite bathroom and dressing room. Some of the many additional rooms include reception, drawing, sewing and day rooms, as well as a large country style kitchen with cast-iron range. The character of the palace is further enhanced with authentic furnishings, which remain. The ‘Llagar’ with the original timber cider press over 3m tall has 240 sqm over two floors, which links to the main house and maintains the original stone walls and floor to create a wonderful setting for receptions. The adjacent, spacious two storey service house is fully renovated and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with 128 sqm of built accommodation overall. The stable block of 65 sqm provides ample storage for animals, vehicles and firewood, as well as machinery to maintain the estate.

Fios village is located only 4 kilometres from Arriondas, a small market town with shops, bars, restaurants, banks, public transport, supermarket and hospital. This part of Asturias benefits from a number of excellent restaurants, such as Casa Marcial, and nearby restaurants include El Corral del Indianu which is also Michelin starred. Cangas de Onis, ancient capital of Asturias, is 15 kilometres away and has a traditional farmers market every Sunday.

Connections are good for both coast and mountains; the pretty seaside town of Ribadesella and Picos de Europa mountain range are only 25 kilometres away. The vibrant towns of Oviedo, Avilés and Gijón are an hour away, with airports of Avilés (Asturias) 100 kilometres away and Santander 140 kilometres.

Potential

The 100 sqm upper gallery above the cider barn would make an excellent studio or additional apartments. The estate grounds have 10,000 sqm of land, part of which is buildable. Depending on the project, at least two additional homes would be possible. There are architectural drawings of both the proposed apartments and building plots.
