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.

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!

Amina and Paul-Cat / Germany says:

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.

Wow, so beautiful and serene. Love the mix of old and new.

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?
