This historical farmhouse, dating back to the 14th century, is located on the Camino de Moncada, near the municipal boundary of Valencia, Spain. It stands as one of the oldest and most interesting examples of rural architecture in Valencia, representing the late medieval heritage of both the city of Valencia and the broader region. The construction, using rammed earth techniques, can be dated to the late 14th or early 15th century.
The current building showcases the most significant part of what was once a large late medieval farmhouse, directly linked to the Repartiment period. It is constructed with a basilical floor plan, featuring a central nave and an asymmetrical development of four bodies. Over time, the property was divided, creating a partition in the first third of the 20th century. The architectural significance of this building lies not only in its design but also in its orientation towards the access road, with a preceding courtyard.
The central nave is constructed with pointed stone arches on its sides, opening towards the chapels and defining an interesting central hall. Apart from the main body, there is a longitudinal brick building, meticulously crafted, featuring excellent flat arches. This section likely housed either farmer residences or a granary, as it includes well-ventilated storage spaces with a two-level window system, typical of the 17th century.
The roofing system is characteristic of the post-Repartiment colonization architecture, utilizing the same pattern: the central body with a gabled roof facing the main facade and the lateral bodies sloping towards the sides. A distinctive feature of this early Valencian architecture is the presence of a courtyard preceding the house, which obstructs the direct view of the entrance door. This design, with a somewhat Islamic influence, was prevalent in the region during this period, as evident in the remains found in similar farmhouses of that time.
The property has been meticulously restored, preserving all the details and attempting to maintain its original style. The materials used include polished concrete flooring, microcement in the bathrooms, aluminum double-glazed windows with an imitation of American oak wood, a natural oak kitchen, and an Argentine-style barbecue.
This presents a unique opportunity to acquire an incomparable residence of significant artistic and architectural value. With the purchase of this property, you not only gain a home but also a piece of history.
