Casa Los Linares offers a unique secluded location combined with ease of access to main roads and towns.  Set within the National Park, the house is surrounded by olive groves and is backed by mountains rising over 1,500 metres.

Originally Casa Los Linares was a working farm dating back at least  100 years.  The age of the property is reflected in the thick stone walls, character features and beautiful original floor tiles, it also has unusually high ceilings for a country house giving it a grandeur not found in many rural houses.  Today Casa Los Linares is a cherished holiday home for the owner and a successful holiday retreat for lucky paying guests.

The entire property has been extended and sympathetically modernized to retain its rustic charm. New roofs, windows and doors compliment the existing rustic doors, beamed ceilings and original tiled floors. During the renovation the property was rewired and re-plumbed and more recently the owners have installed an upgrade to the septic tank.

Outside a large patio area fronts onto a 15M x 6M swimming pool (saline).  There is extensive terracing between the pool and house which includes a covered alfresco lounging and dining area (with outside kitchen). The gardens have been landscaped to include a rose garden and a variety of shrubs.  A timer system provides automated irrigation to the garden and a large outhouse with light and power, houses all the swimming pool equipment safely out of sight.  The property is fully fenced with wrought iron entrance gates and hard surface driveway.

Modern conveniences and utilities: Water provision is direct from the mains. Electric is installed. Cooling/heating units have been installed in some living areas and all bedrooms.  Satellite internet is in place.  Hot water is supplied via a gas (propane) on demand water heater in the main house. The annex is supplied by an electric boiler. A modern septic tank has been installed within the last 3 years.

Layout of the property:

The reception hall: The main door enters into an impressive foyer which boasts a large wood burning stove.  To the right, a staircase leads to the upstairs bedrooms.  Beneath the staircase is the entrance to the kitchen and a single step from the entrance hall leads to the large dining room/T.V. snug area.

The contemporary, well designed kitchen boasts marble work surfaces with a large island food preparation area and built in sink.  Surrounding units include a gas hob, built in oven and microwave, dishwasher and large fridge with automatic ice maker plumbed in.

The utility room is accessed off the kitchen which has a range of storage cupboards matching the kitchen units, washing machine, dryer and sink unit.  A door leads from the utility room to the rear covered terrace area and outside bathroom.

TV Snug/dining room is a long room with eight seat dining table at one end and two sofas and a TV at the other.  This room gives access to both the Annex and also the games room (via antique double doors).

The games room/T.V. room is a fantastic space and is a hidden wow of the house. A long bar with hardwood bar top and antique, built-in cupboard behind and sink.  A pool table has been located with hanging lighting and at the other end of the room is a large flat screen TV.  The room also easily holds 3 large sofas plus various occasional chairs and tables.  The ceiling height in this room is over 3 metres with wooden beamed ceiling.  Large wooden doors at one end open out onto a covered patio area and beyond to the pool.

Bedroom 1 is at least 15 square meters, big enough for a large bed and furniture. It also boasts a large en-suite, fully tiled with a shower, toilet, sink and bidet plus plenty of room to install a bath if desired. It has recently been refurbished to accommodate a walk in shower with modern glass screen.

Bedroom 2:  Is a also very large double bedroom at least 12 square meters, with an outside balcony area which allows guests to sit and overlook the pool area and surrounding countryside.  From this room, a heavy wooden door accesses a stone staircase leading to the attic space.

The family shower room is fully tiled with traditional tiles and comprises a shower, toilet, sink and bidet. It has recently been refurbished to accommodate a walk in shower with modern glass screen.

Second floor attic:   An impressive area that extends the full size of the house and is totally dry (providing a huge amount of storage space) or even an opportunity to extend bedroom space subject to planning permission.

Separate guest annex over 3 levels (with independent access & access from within the main house which can be closed):

Ground floor: The first room of the annex is accessed off the T.V./soft seating end of the dining room This room has been used as a library/study and as a mini gym. It has aircon installed and is currently being used for linen storage. From this room there is access to a metal spiral staircase leading upwards and a small shower room/wc which services the annex.

First floor:  The main living area of the guest annex, has an open fireplace, lounge and TV area, plus capsule kitchen with sink and hob.   This room has access to the outside/rear of the property, giving private access to the independent guest accommodation.  A further spiral staircase leads from the living room/kitchen area to a mezzanine floor.

Second floor:  Features an open mezzanine double sleeping area with a window giving beautiful views over the pool and olive groves beyond.

The outside space certainly provides enough room for everyone to spread out. The impressive covered alfresco dining/lounging area with outside kitchen has a beamed ceiling and houses a large food preparation work surface area with built-in sink and a fridge and scope to build in a BBQ or use an independent BBQ as the current owners do.  The area is serviced by a shower room and W.C. so no wet feet through the house, and the area has direct access to the kitchen via a side door.  This makes food preparation for outdoor entertaining very convenient.

This fabulous, shaded outside living area, is fronted by a huge, traditionally tiled patio, separating the house from the pool and garden. 

The large pool is 15 x 6 metres with a depth of one metre at one end, increasing to two metres at the deep end. There is a poolside shower installed and a wooden deck at the far end of the pool big enough for 2 double sun loungers and more.
