What we like about this property

This remarkable installation challenges the senses with stunning simplicity and beautiful symmetry, from where you’ll experience both the commanding architectural achievement, and its relationship with the natural world. It’s a triumphant creation that’s powerful, simple and beautiful.

Description

Perched on almost nine acres at the edge of the stunning Puertos de Beceite national park, Casa Pezo floats above a hidden valley, with spectacular views over the national park, the Algars river, and the medieval hilltop villages of Arnes and Horta San Juan in the distance.  

Designed by multi-award winning, MoMA-exhibited, Chilean architects, Pezo & Von Ellrichshausen, the house was selected as one of the five most important new houses in the world as well as Best New Private House in 2014 by Wallpaper Magazine and has been featured extensively in the worldwide media, from Architectural Digest and Vanity Fair to the cover of the coffee table book, Super Houses.

Conceived as the first in a series of homes commissioned to highlight the work of several avant-garde international architects, Casa Pezo was completed in 2013 and is purposely located off the beaten track down an unpaved road to offer complete privacy and tranquility and an all natural experience.

Constructed entirely of concrete, the central base forms a platform that juts out over the landscape giving the sensation of floating above the the treeline. Two stories high, the base anchors the structure around the interior courtyard and pool while the rest of the structure orbits around the periphery, and although thoroughly modern, was designed in the proportions and layout of traditional Mediterranean homes.

There’s a fine tuned sense of balance both vertically and horizontally that integrates the interior and exterior spaces, with the living area, dining area and kitchen all benefiting from the walls of glass that slide away and immerse you into the environment. With two bedrooms, the house can accommodate up to five and is entirely solar powered and off grid but with a luxurious sense of minimalist style.

This is a remarkable home that offers an exceptional opportunity to experience the art of design and living.

**More on Pezo & Von Ellrichshausen: Inaugural winners of the MCHAP Emerge Prize and featured in the Royal Academy’s ground-breaking 2014 Sensing Spaces architecture exhibition (described in The Spectator as “the best exhibition of architecture I have ever experienced.”)

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The entire home is off grid and solar powered, therefore there is no wifi and no home entertainment (but who needs it here really?) There is sporadic cell phone coverage. Housekeeping provided weekly or daily for additional charge. Optional private chef and catering services available.

AROUND

The Matarranya in Aragon, is one of the most sparsely populated, remote corners of Spain, and has been described as the Spanish Tuscany. Only recently accessible by newly built roadways, the region is home to several medieval hilltop villages as well as wild natural beauty. Traversed by the Algars river whose banks mark the border between Aragon and Catalonia, you are just over two hours from both Barcelona and Valencia. The nearby Puertos de Beceite national park is home to unique Iberian wildlife and was a favourite of Pablo Piccaso’s, featuring in a number of his paintings. The protected and mostly empty beaches of the Ebro Delta are just over an hour’s drive away.

LOCATION

Aragon, Spain. Nearest Airport: Reus International Airport (1.5 hr) Barcelona and Valencia International Airports (2.5 hr) and Zaragoza (2 hr)

  • Mat, May 18, 2017

    My friends and I stayed at this home for a few days in May of 2017. It is one of the few places in the world at which you can find yourself and truthfully claim that it’s more beautiful than the pictures. It’s comfortable, but if comfort is your highest ideal, you’re best suited staying elsewhere for a pleasant stay. However, if you’re willing to sacrifice some small comforts for an enormous reward of stellar views of both, nature and the architecture, it’s well worth the price.

    “Pezo Solo: a miracle how the house is placed in a gorgeous landscape. It’s not for shopping lovers and disco dwellers. It’s for people who are into architecture and nature. An amazing house: raw, robust, but comfortable. Secluded but not lonely. Wonderful views on all sides. We spent an unforgettable week in September ’15. HVS”
