This detached country home is located within the Pinar Jardin urbanization and is surrounded by a good size plot of 2,700M2. The area is dominated by the pine woodland (more than 3,000M2 of woodland) which creates a mature environment which, combined with the generous plot sizes means all the houses have peace and privacy. This is an urbanization which doesn’t feel like you have neighbours.
The location is perfect for those looking for adventure – mountain biking, walking and anything connected to nature can be enjoyed in the immediate area. This is “real Spain” and you have the choice of many local towns and cities to soak up the culture of the country. Avila and the city of Segovia have amazing architecture, colourful histories and a diverse cultural appeal with many different influences.
If you don’t want to venture far, the local village of Marugán is just 2km away and has a range of bars/restaurants and other day to day facilities.
Local facilities include: a primary health care centre where you can see a GP if needed. A local pharmacy, an indoor sports complex, a large swimming pool with a restaurant where they prepare excellent paellas during summer weekends and it’s easy to socialize with local friendly people.
The property itself offers a great deal of flexibility – with more than 200M2 of built accommodation, this house works perfectly as a permanent home – plenty of space around the house, a lovely pool and good access make this an ideal home for those wanting to explore the heart of Spain. On the ground floor is a large open plan living and dining room. This leads to an American style fitted kitchen. A separate bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor ensure that you can accommodate guests or use the bedroom as a second sitting room.
There are two terraces which are both ideal for relaxing, dining or entertaining and connect the inside of the house beautifully with the gardens.
There is a utility room outside which houses the washing machine.
The upstairs comprises two double bedrooms and a shared bathroom.
In the front garden is a detached studio/home office/annex which has a wood burning stove to make it feel nice and cosy and a WC for comfort. The front half of this building is also a carport and there is a chance that this could be enclosed to add accommodation to make this into a full guest cottage.
To the rear of the garden is a large swimming pool – a delightful area, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the peaceful surroundings.
The gardens warp around the property and provide plenty of room for relaxing and soaking up the sunshine. However, the height of these mature pines ensures you always have shade when needed.
