This house is sold in an old rice mill belonging to the Larios family in Sotogrande for 360,000 euros
This picturesque house, located about 10 km from the Port of Sotogrande, Cádiz, is for sale for 360,000 euros. It was built on an old 19th-century rice mill that belonged to the Larios family. This family was one of the richest and most powerful in Spain. It is the name of one of the most famous streets in Malaga’s capital.
It all started with Pedro Larios, a widowed cattle trader with several children from La Rioja. He settled in the capital of Malaga at the beginning of the 19th century, although fame was given to him by his son and the first Marquis of Larios, Martín. He amassed a small fortune in Cádiz thanks to smuggling in troubled times as Napoleonic troops had invaded the country.
This house radiates history and is part of 14 other properties built on an old rice mill, whose structure of stone walls and metal trusses have been used to design the houses. The houses use materials from the area, such as stone slabs from Tarifa and clay or marble floors.
