In the first one of the mentioned localities, in a small urbanization, in the same edges of the Nature reserve of the Guadarrama, one finds this splendid property that I present and propose you in the present article.
On a plot of 11.145 m2, that develops in soft slope crossed by a stream with abundant wealth in rainy epochs and of thaw, we find a haughty housing of four floors, with a surface constructed of 1.300 m2, if we rely on that of both circular pavilions placed in one of itīs side, functions one of quarter (boiler) room and other one of spit ( wood oven) and barbecue, designed with clear influences of the typical Argentine \"quinchos\".
The first floor is notably raised on the area in order to facilitate that the floor semibasement enjoys abundant light and ventilation natives.
The trace of the chalet is strongly influenced by the Alpine constructions of Switzerland and of the Austrian Tirol. With cover of fallen due to two waters covered with black slate, walls in big pieces of slate polycolor oxidized (filita) and integral utilization of Rumanian massive oak in interior carpentry, soils and interior covers.
