An abandoned stables in the western province of Cáceres in Spain carefully renovated by architectural and development firm Ábaton. A stunning family home that not only makes you want to pack your bags and book a flight to Spain because someone made a mistake ... you're sure this is your home ... but also makes you feel warm and fuzzy because it's sustainable as well. Solar panels supply energy during the summer while turbines take advantage of the two streams that run through the property providing electricity in the winter. Rain water is returned to the ground. Materials are recyclable.  Large expanses of stone floors provide thermal mass. Una casa de inspiración.

Your ability to find the most breathtaking homes around the world amazes me as much as the homes themselves. Thank you.

You always post the loveliest way! So, that I like to live in every house you show in R.O.T.A.T.I.O.N. ! Until my plans come true I do it in my dreams. Thank you!

I never read a blog given a more appropriate name than yours! I always feel desired to be inspired. And of course not very seldom inspired to desire, too.

Amazing place! A bit on the large side for a sustainable set-up, but I love the casual landscaping, -kudos to those designers! I also love those brown leather armchairs that are in a few of the pictures. Anybody know who makes them?

the home and the landscape leave me speechless...such beauty all around..
