Just a half-hour drive from the Mediterranean Sea, along a private road that winds its way through the Castellón Hills, you’ll find ‘Spronken House’—a holiday home in Spain designed by an artist, and available to rent.
Dutch artist Xander Spronken, the maker and namesake of the property, is renowned not only for his iron sculptures but also for his unique architectural compositions. The ‘Spronken House’ is characteristic of the dual nature of his practice; existing as a liveable sculpture set in two parts on a four-hectare property. Settled amongst the umber landscape, surrounded by groves of almond and olive trees, the home takes advantage of its natural surrounds with floor-to-ceiling windows, external patio areas, two swimming pools, and views of the Iberian mountains. Measuring at 310-square-meters in total, the east and west wings of the house are substantial in size, each housing two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, pantry, and a living-dining area. Constructed from concrete, wood, iron, and glass, this high ceilinged solar-powered holiday home offers an aesthetic take on contemporary living.
