We talk about a house with history. This farmhouse comprises two towers dating back to the 16th century and the main house was added in the 17th century. Fun fact: the towers once served as watchtowers for a nearby castle to look out for pirates coming in from the sea.With such a long, rich history, these towers were placed under national protection, requiring designer Ana Engelhorn to focus her attention on the main house. Even this main building required careful consideration, using specialist builders and architects to restore this gem to its former glory.

The studio focused on creating a three-bedroom house using original materials and highlighting historic features, like the stone floors on the ground floor and antique oak boards upstairs. They accentuated the property’s high ceilings to create large, airy rooms that bring the sweeping Spanish countryside indoors.For the decor, they sourced antique furniture from the UK and Spain that befit a historic European farmhouse. Bold, contemporary touches, such as chrome bathroom fittings and modern artwork, bring the look into the 21st century, creating an elegant marriage between antique charm and modern luxury.
