Dire economic circumstances are forcing the Canary Islands Government get rid of some of their high-end real-estate, including the Vistabella palace in Santa Cruz, which is hoped to realise around a million euros.
The Director General of Heritage and Contracting, Abel Morales, is trying to include the house in a package of property belonging to the regional government which will be auctioned soon.
They are currently evaluating which other properties are also likely to be sold.
The auction will probably include the Navas Palace in La Laguna, and the Carta, in the Plaza de la Candelaria in Tenerife (both used as administrative buildings).
The Vistabella was bought in 1987 for the equivalent of 391,500 euros , during the tenure of Jerónimo Saavedra.
The house was designed to be the official residence of the President of the Canarian Government in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The ground floor of the three-storey building includes a spacious foyer with hardwood staircase and elevator, large dining room with access to a large terrace with panoramic views of Santa Cruz, as well as a 30 sqm kitchen-dining room, and a toilet.
Upstairs there are three suites with private terraces, as well as an attic, and a ground floor with a 50m-long reception room, terraces, parking and a garden with fruit trees.
So if you’ve got a cool million to spare………..
