House | Sale in Arinsal
This authentic Andorran house from the beginning of the 19th century, completely renovated, is located in the very heart of the historic center of Arinsal (La Massana), just next to the church of Sant Andreu d'Arinsal, in front of the gondola access to the Vallnord Pal-Arinsal ski slopes and in the middle of one of the most dynamic winter leisure areas of the Principality.
The 150-m2 house is divided into 3 floors connected by an internal wooden staircase, with entrances both on the ground floor and on the first floor where there is a small outside terrace. The careful refurbishment has allowed to conserve the thick exterior stone facades, updating the wooden interior structure and adding living space by closing the old main balcony. The interior finishes have respected the original rustic style with stone walls and exposed wooden beams, which give it a unique character with a lot of personality and authenticity.
The daytime area occupies the first floor that has been wished to be diaphanous. We find an open kitchen, fully equipped with high-end appliances, white lacquered wood furniture, and a bar with illuminated cabinets that separates it from the living room. This part of the piece is presided over by a majestic fireplace that integrates perfectly into the in-sight stone wall. The last component of this area is the old balcony, which has been closed with a wooden ceiling and is surrounded by windows to preserve the inspiring views towards the valley of Comallempla and the peaks of the Port Negre and the Port Vell.
The rest area is on the second floor, under the roof with high wooden ceilings, and is divided into two bright double bedrooms and a separate bathroom with a hydro-massage shower. The main room has large windows that occupy a whole wall, with the same views as from the covered balcony, and a VELUX skylight on the ceiling that allows the entrance of lots of natural light, as well as a glass wall into the inner staircase to amplify the sensation of space and a large built-in closet that offers a lot of storage space. The second double room has views over the old town of Arinsal, as well as a built-in closet and a VELUX skylight.
The ground floor, where there is a second entrance to the house, is divided into an exterior room of two environments with built-in closets that occupy a whole wall, and an independent complete bathroom with a hydro-massage shower cabin, and a small closet with a sink to install the washing machine and the dryer.
Although the house has kept a good part of the original style and rustic elements, it also has modern high quality finishes such as lighting with LEDs built into the ceilings, stoneware floors in the day area and bathrooms, parquet floors in the bedrooms, and the electric blinds with remote controls in the skylights.
This very exclusive property, both due to its location, its historical character and the intrinsic quality of the building and its renovation, is the perfect home to enjoy mountain and winter leisure activities as well as the quality of life that this part of the Principality of Andorra offers, in a relaxed, peaceful and comfortable way.
