“Can Ruscalleda” is a five-hectare country property, currently used as a garden centre. Its 1,179 square meter walled compound, which dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries includes a masía,or farm house of 610 m2 with its annexed buildings, which measure 569 m2.
Little more than 10 minutes from the beaches and marina of the holiday resort of Blanes, it has been scrupulously restored and maintained by the current owner in keeping with its antique, sophisticated character. The photographs and plans give a clear idea of its layout. Currently used as a private family holiday home, it could be turned into a boutique rural guest house and restaurant with great potential, particularly since it is easily accessed from the nearby motorway.
The property will be sold together with all of its exquisitely restored furniture and antiques, and a 7-meter long ARTABAN boat, powered by a Volvo 100 HP motor. Other features, all in pristine condition, include a built-in toilet.
A tall metal gate leads to the compound, presided over by the masía. This is flanked by an annex that has several possibilities for development. Before the porch that extends along the front, is a small swimming pool in the middle of the central lawn.
At ground level, adjoining the house on the left and measuring 103 m2, is a beautiful wine cellar (which these days serves as a space for family gatherings) and, on the right, a small guest toilet. Passing through the tall door to the house itself, we find ourselves in a huge hall (54 m2) whose doors open onto two spacious bedrooms (16 m2 and 17 m2 respectively) and a large fully-equipped bathroom (14 m2). On the right, a door leads to a substantial sitting room (23 m2), while a second one gives onto a huge kitchen-diner, still with its original fireplace. At the end of the hall are a pantry and a flight of stairs leading to the upper floor.
Taking the staircase up to the first floor, we reach a small hall with two doors to left and right. The latter one opens onto to a fine, spacious library (38 m2). At each end doors lead to a pair of bedrooms, one measuring 17 m2, and the other a substantial 25 m2 with an adjoining 16 m2 dressing room (a space that could easily be transformed into a private bathroom, if required). This bedroom gives onto an enormous 60 m2 covered terrace, or open gallery. The door to the left of the small hall opens onto a large 51 m2 sitting-dining room at the end of which French windows lead to a balcony that overlooks the walled compound.
To the left of the sitting room are three doors. One leads to a large bedroom (19 m2) with private bathroom (15 m2) and a balcony that overlooks the compound. A second door also gives access to the bathroom from the sitting area. The third door leads to a 15 m2 room with its own fireplace. With its own 22 m2 open terrace, this room could easily be converted into another bedroom or second kitchen, if desired.
On the right of the sitting room are two doors, one giving access to another large bedroom (17 m2) and the other opening to another bedroom of similar dimensions that has its own bathroom (15.5 m2). Each of these two rooms also has a door that gives directly onto to the covered terrace.
A staircase leads to the attic (51 m2), an open space with balcony that also overlooks the compound.
