Spectacular country property consisting of the main house plus a separate owner's or caretaker's house.
This Andalusian style country house was built twenty years ago using the best materials. The walls are as thick as traditional Andalucian cortijos but are constructed of modern materials with high thermal qualities. The carpentry is all solid wood with heavy duty double glazing to minise heat loss in winter and maximise protection from the sun in summer. The rooms are distributed over two storeys with a further basement area for services.
The two floors, which are connected by a lift, are distributed as follows:
Ground floor: superb double height entrance hall with open staircase; dining room with working open fireplace, spacious lounge also with working open fireplace, small bar, toilets, two bedooms with en-suite bathrooms, access to the walled internal courtyard and to the covered parking to one side of the house.
First floor: eight double bedrooms, four of which have balconies overlooking the courtyard and/or countryside. The bathrooms are of a similar design throughout but the bedrooms feature different colour schemes to distinguish one from the other. All have modern four-poster beds, whether doubles or twins. Every bedroom is spacious, luxurious and large enough to have a lounge area with seating and a desk. There is also a linen cupboard on this level.
In the basement there is a sophisticated Swedish water heating system, a pressurised water system, a 12.000 litre water reservoir, a wine cellar, a linen store and a general store room. Also in the basement there is the boiler for the gas-fired underfloor heating. The gas containers are housed outside in a special room.
Outside, the views from the property are spectacular, looking out across countryside to the famed ridges of El Torcal. The gardens surrounding the building are kept in excellent condition. A few steps below the main house is the 16 m x 8 m swimming pool with a building at one end that houses a bar, two toilets and the pool pump room.
Access to the property is by asphalt or concrete road with an impressive tree-lined entrance drive. At the top of the drive there is covered parking for eight cars and plenty of additional parking space.
The property is sold as is, fully furnished and ready to move in. Only the owner's personal possessions and some of the Persian rugs will be removed prior to sale.
The main house has a licence to operate as a hotel or as a casa rural, rented in its entirety.
The owner's, or caretaker's, house is separated from the main house by a short distance and by the topography. It has its own entrance drive and parking area. The house consists of a spacious, light lounge/diner, a split level kitchen, three double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, a second bathroom, a covered outside terrace, a large workshop/store room and a small pool. Surrounded by mature gardens the property is very private.
The property is situated in the centre of Andalusia, ideal for sightseeing trips to scenic areas and the principal cities of Málaga, Marbella, Granada, Sevilla etc.
