On the Water

I’m back. Pretty phenomenal trip. Thought I’d ease back into things with a seriously spectacular lake house. Love the barn elements, the staircase, the setting. Quite something.

ÁBATON Arquitectura: Converted Barn in Spain

Ok. So my last post was a tad kitschy – a bit of a diversion from the kinds of spots I usually gravitate towards. I’m still in Caribbean mode, after all.

But, I do have travel on my mind. I’ve had some pretty incredible trips to Spain over the years and I keep finding spots that make me want to return.

i.e. the entire site of Ábaton architects.

Where to begin? One property is more lovely than the next. But, let’s start here: a converted barn in Extramadura – a Western part of Spain.
