SpronkenHouse

SpronkenHouse

Surrounded by mountains and dead straight rows of olive and almond trees, the SpronkenHouse is located on a spacious plot in the hinterland of the “Orange Blossom Coast” north of Valencia. The building, designed by Dutch artist and trained sculptor Xander Spronken, is a residential sculpture made of concrete, wood, iron and glass. Six-meter-high columns are connected with wooden beams, the spaces in between are filled with huge frameless glass panes, and elements made of hand-forged iron can be found throughout the house. The interplay of space and negative space, of inside and outside, light and shadow and the pure beauty of the materials used characterize the ambience. Despite the high, massive pillars and the mighty wooden beams, the rooms appear light and airy. The boundaries between outside and inside seem to be blurred; an effect that is further enhanced by the great height of the rooms.

The SpronkenHouse consists of two buildings, the 160 square meter east wing and the 150 square meter west wing. Both houses have an open-plan living and dining area with kitchen. A smaller concrete volume, partially embedded in the floor, is set into this large space. Above and inside it is a sleeping area with a bathroom. The houses, which each have their own pool, can be rented separately or together.

What to do

Hiking in the Desert de les Palmes nature reserve, horseback riding, truffle search, wine tastings, visiting the hot natural water springs of Montanejos, visiting the surrounding mountain villages, trips to the cities of Castellón, Valéncia, Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea (30 minutes)

Bereits zweimal haben wir eine kleine Woche an diesem wahnhaft schönen Ort verbracht. Meiner Meinung nach ist dies kein Haus, sondern ein Kunstobjekt zum Leben. Wir, 42 und 44 Jahre alt, bilden eine Familie mit unseren beiden Töchtern im Alter von 15 und 16 Jahren, die auch hier eine tolle Zeit hatten. Das Haus ist geräumig, schön eingerichtet und das beispiellose Licht lässt Sie sich mit der Umgebung eins fühlen. Dieser Bereich ist weitläufig und daher hat das Haus viel Privatsphäre. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, die Schlafzimmer geräumig und der Pool eine gewünschte Kühlung. Die Außenküche war für uns absolut der ultimative Ort, um lange Abende am offenen Feuer zu verbringen. Die Gegend ist auf jeden Fall eine Entdeckung wert, da sie nicht besonders touristisch ist und man das authentische Spanien kennen lernt. Die Natur erinnert Sie an die Toskana, aber vielleicht wegen der vielen Berge noch vielfältiger. Der Kontakt mit dem Eigentümer ist direkt, effizient und er ist sehr hilfreich. Wir können diese einzigartigen Orte jedem empfehlen, der einen Urlaubsort mit künstlerischer Note in einem ganz besonderen Umfeld sucht.
