Renovated Farm Compound in Northern Spain – the Spanish Pyrenees

This property consists of three traditional Pyrenean farm buildings — “bordas,” in the local Aranese language — that were renovated and reconfigured in 2000 to create a “coto,” or compound, with a total of six bedrooms. Where possible, the original stone and wood were retained or refinished in the renovation, said Keith Kirwen, aproperty consultant in the Val d’Aran who is brokering the sale on behalf of the owner. Exteriors are native stone, the roofs slate. The interior walls are lime plaster, and the wooden beams and trimwork are cherry, oak and fir. An oil furnace powers a radiant-heat system throughout the compound. – nytimes
