When a house is called “house of dreams” you get a feel for how much it means to the current owner who is now looking to pass this charming home on to new owners who can enjoy it in the future.
The area has a feeling of peace and tranquillity but it is not isolated – with local villages within easy reach and a popular bar/restaurant that can be walked to, this is a great place to relax and enjoy the best of the Almeria weather but where you can also feel part of a community.
This detached villa comes with 3 double bedrooms, plenty of living space including a large covered terrace and mature gardens and a lovely free form swimming pool.

The location of the property offers so much to do…
Granada is just 2 hours away by car and is the perfect place to take friends to visit the Alhambra Palace, to shop or even enjoy the ski slopes in the winter.
The Costa Almeria has masses going for it – cruise liners make port at Almeria on their Mediterranean trips and Mojacar is very popular being one of the oldest City in Spain.
The International Surf/Gliding championships are/have taken place there as well as the World Speed boat championships.
Next door is the Port of Garrucha where most of the seafood sold in UK is brought ashore.
This area really does have the best of both worlds being close enough for 17km of beaches and near enough to travel to the Sierras for skiing. Mount Limaria overlooks the gardens so it is possible to see Eagles flying around. It is also a Twitchers paradise, having seen birds such as the elusive male Cuckoo and as small as a Wren.

Gardens and free form swimming pool
The property is set within gardens of more than ¼ acre and these benefit from a number of different areas including a very large gravel parking area to the front with a fountain in middle. This area is surrounded by palms, various shrubs and trees including Pear, Cherry and Olives and Grapefruit bush at one end.
In front of the garden room, you find the free form swimming pool and sun deck – this is a great area for children to enjoy the pool with parents able to supervise. When the doors are all opened on the garden room, it brings the outside in and is perfect when having friends to visit or entertaining.
The free form pool comes with a bespoke pool cover.
Behind the pool is a grassed area ideal for sunbathing and games etc. and yet more palms and trees.
There is another gravel area in front of the porch which leads onto the grape pergola where the outside kitchen is located. This comes with a BBQ and is the perfect place to entertain.
In between the gravel and Grape Vine is a paved area which holds a 6000 litre back up deposit for water.
A raised vegetable plot is available for those who want to grow their own herbs and vegetables.
The property is located close to a number of villages which means that local amenities, shops, medical facilities and plenty of bars and restaurants are available to choose from. There are also a wide choice of schools for families – a bus comes to the area to pick them up and drop them off.
One of the great attractions to this property in particular is the local bar/restaurant called La Vida – a real hub of the community, there is excellent food on offer and plenty of regular entertainment. BBQ’s, sports TV, various clubs and social gatherings and everyone is welcome. This is popular with all nationalities and will probably be where the owner meets you to take you to her lovely villa.
The property comes under Zurgena but there are a number of smaller villages even closer to the property.
In fact, with the A334 and the E15 motorway close at hand, access to the rest of Almeria is easy – whether it is a shopping trip to Albox and Huercal Overa or a trip to the beach at Vera and Mojacar, the location of this villa makes it easy.
Access to airports is great – Almeria Airport (1 hour), Corvera Airport is now fully operational and Alicante Airport (2 hrs) – all can be reached with a direct shuttle bus.
Summary – if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful countryside location but don’t want to feel isolated, this could be for you. A great bar/restaurant within walking distance and plenty of amenities close at hand.
