This is a unique property located in the historic part of Salobreña, below the castle and with stunning views across to the sea and, in the opposite direction, mountains. Within walking distance of the beach, this is the ideal home and business from which to enjoy village life in the popular Costa Tropical.
Originally, an old village house, originally dating from 1900 but completely rebuilt in 2016 as an open-plan, organically-styled series of spaces. Two floors of accommodation and a large third floor roof terrace with panoramic views.
The property has a license to operate as a gallery and the ground floor has been used as a retail space for fine art and furniture. The first floor is the main living area but this has also been used as part of the gallery and as a performance space. Due to the structure, the main interior spaces are completely open-plan and as a result they are entirely flexible. The use of exposed concrete and sculptural staircases lends the property a loft-style minimalism, and the whitewashed roof terrace and pastel-coloured woodwork has echoes of Ibiza-chic.
So, the property could be used as a private home, and has been very successfully rented as such, a gallery or some other form of retail area or a combination of both.
Ground Floor – is currently the main part of the gallery with one single open-plan area that could easily be subdivided to create a bedroom at the rear and living space at the front. There is a cloakroom/WC at the back of this space, and a beautiful, Gaudi-esque staircase flows up to the first floor.
Half Landing – before the staircase reaches the first floor, there is a half-landing with double doors into a delightful bathroom with full bath, WC and wash basin. Bohemian, elegant and very stylish.
First Floor – completely open plan and currently used as the main living space with the sleeping area at the front with two pairs of French windows overlooking Calle Real. There is a dining area and, at the rear of the space, there is a very well designed industrial-style kitchen with a beautiful window looking out towards the buildings of the historic quarter of Salobreña.
Stairs rise again to a second half-landing that provides a cosy, very bright snug/reading corner, and at the top of this second flight of stairs there is a small office area with space for a desk, perhaps. There is power and plumbing here, too, in case it is decided to add a basin and refrigerator for roof terrace users.
Roof Terrace – doors open onto the beautiful, generous roof terrace from where there are uninterrupted views to both the sea and the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The neighbouring buildings step down the hill below the property, and this space feels elevated and open to the Mediterranean skies.
The roof terrace has been strengthened to support the addition of a Moroccan-style bathing pool and the plans were for a 4-person hammam-style, slate-lined shallow pool.
This traditional town house can easily be returned to a standard layout but we feel it will appeal to those buyers looking for a a stylish home with business potential and great flexibility of future use.

Salobreña is a small coastal town of two halves: the historic centre of the town, cascading in a higgledy-piggledy tumble from beneath the 10th Century Castle, and then the more contemporary stretch that extends towards and along the beach. The length of coast that belongs to Granada Province, known as the Costa Tropical, is far less hectic and much more unspoiled than the neighbouring Costa del Sol. It is a coastline of sandy beach, protected coves, and rocky headlands.
Salobreña has an excellent selection of small and larger supermarkets, local shops and plenty of bars and restaurants as befits any coastal destination.
