Property Inspiration: Converted Off-Grid Stable – Spain

05 Aug
August 5, 2013

 

In the countryside of Cáceres, Spain, life continues how it has for centuries—livestock farming is king, ranches are handed down through generations, and the rolling hills offer food, water and shelter for the cattle and their owners. So when Madrid city-dwellers Carlos Alonso and his sister Camino bought an abandoned stable, the countryside looked twice.

But there was nothing to fear—change wasn’t in the cards. The siblings are partners at architecture firm Ábaton, which prioritizes sustainability and preserving place. Instead of letting a stable rot, they brought new life to the structure, building a modern home that learned from, and pays homage to, the countryside.

Description

A freehold four-storey converted warehouse for sale situated on residential roads in Shoreditch, London.

Information

This four-storey converted warehouse is positioned on one of the most sought-after residential roads in Shoreditch. Previously a furniture factory built by John Barr & Sons in 1865, the property has been restored by the architect Andrew Fielder.

Meticulous care and attention has gone in to retaining the original features, including wonderful brick walls with layer upon layer of paint, timber floors, loading doors and fireplaces, all of which is combined with contemporary fittings. Every floor has dual-aspect windows, giving exceptional light and beautiful interiors throughout.

This would be ideal for someone looking for a space in which to work, but could easily be transformed into a kitchen or additional living space if desired. Accessed from here is a charming private courtyard. The studio space could also be used for off-street parking, as there is direct access at street level.

The first floor is entirely dedicated to a large bedroom space with ensuite bathroom and high-quality bespoke wardrobes. An amazing open-plan kitchen/reception occupies the second floor, and there are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom over the third floor.
In addition to the outside space of the courtyard, there is a fabulous decked roof terrace with views south towards many of the City’s most iconic buildings. Measuring close to 500 sq ft, it is an ideal area for entertaining in the summer months.
