House in Palafrugell, 2004

House in Palafrugell, 2004

 

Two former town houses that, united, become a manor house. The owner of this residence, great lover of the old and rural, could fulfil his dream of living in a big stone and brick house, but  in the town centre.

The entrance is through one of these houses, where there are also the stairs to the upper floors. The main room is situated on the ground floor of the other house. It is covered by a magnificent Catalan vault that was carefully restored, exposing the original bricks. Likewise, the walls have been restored to show their original stone, and ceramic tiles were fitted, giving the area great authenticity.

An extension was built at the back of the ground floor to house the kitchen. With access to the garden, the room has a wood beamed ceiling, above which there is a terrace.

The first floor was completely reorganized to accommodate the bedrooms. Finally, another floor was added, similar to an attic, following the general style of stone walls, brick and wood beamed ceilings.

This house deserved a report in the magazine Casas Campo, issue 46.
