The villa has a front entrance via a porch with soft seating that faces West so, superb for watching the sun set. Once through the front door, you arrive onto a galleried landing/hallway that connects every room in the villa.
From the galleried landing/hallway you look down onto the wonderfully light and bright living/dining room. The ceiling height of this room is impressive and the windows that face the stunning panoramic mountain views are full height. The room feels elegant and comfortable with a wood burning stove between the dual aspect windows.
The open-plan kitchen is accessed off the living/dining room and is fully fitted in a light colour. The view from the kitchen window is wonderful, taking in the mountain ranges South of Almogia village.
Family bathroom is a full white suite to include a vanity basin, full length bath with shower over, w.c. and bidet. The bathroom is fully tiled in a soft grey colour.
Bedroom 1 with en-suite is a spacious bedroom with, ‘his & her’s’ built-in wardrobes and a small corridor to the en-suite shower room and entrance to the bedroom. The bedroom is dual aspect with windows to the front and rear of the villa. The en-suite is a shower room, fully tiled in dove grey.
Bedroom 2 is a good size double that also has, ‘his & her’s built-in wardrobes and is single aspect with views to the front of the villa.
Bedroom 3 is also a spacious double that is currently used as a sports watching room. There is a double sofa bed in this room currently. This views from the window are to the front of the villa.
From every room in the villa there are outstanding views, peace and quiet. Virtually daily, birds of prey can be seen soaring on the thermals to the front or rear of the villa.
The entire property is immaculate inside and outside and the buyer can turn up to this property on completion and enjoy this home without the need to do any work. It would make a fantastic holiday home or permanent residence.
The current owners have enjoyed this villa for 18 years and are only moving to be closer to their son who lives on the coast. They intend to move to and apartment and retire.
Internet is connected using a line-of-sight to a mast system in Almogia village. You can approach the company who provides the internet and ask for different speeds, available at different tariffs. There is WiFi available throughout the villa and onto the pool terrace. The current owners only pay €30 per month to Ex-Com for their internet service.
UK TV is currently watched via, ‘Firestick’ with no problems at all.
Satellite dish is available for re-alignment for the viewing of Northern European TV (not the UK).
The pool and pool terrace is located for sun from; sun rise to sunset. The pool is a good size for swimming and maintenance. Large enough but not too large to make caring for it complex. From the pool there are amazing mountain vistas to be enjoyed whichever way you look.
The pool/alfresco dining terrace is spacious and has areas for shade or for soaking up the sun. There is an arbour covered in fragrant climbing plants such as jasmine. Under the arbour is a solid table and bench that remains outside all year round and can be enjoyed year round. Next to the alfresco dining area is a brick built BBQ.
Breakfast terrace with retractable sun awning is located just outside the back door which enters the villa into the dining and kitchen end of the living room. So, the perfect place for breakfast, especially as this patio is East/South facing.
Formal and low maintenance gardens surround the villa on its own mound. Around the villa is white gravel and the natural stone/rock of the area broken up with Mediterranean planting of shrubs and succulents that require little to no watering and less care than many other plants.
Flat land below the villa is a large square area that could easily be planted up as an orchard where you could grow all manner of trees. The plot is West facing and protected from any Northerly wind by the mound next to the villa so all manner of fruits and nuts could be grown here, even avocados and mangos, if desired.
A concrete driveway winds up to the villa so there are never any concerns in accessing the villa rain or shine. Having the driveway directly off the tarmac country road is a real advantage too.
A car port with storage shed behind is located at the top end of the driveway. A useful outbuilding to keep gardening equipment.
Partially fenced land and gated entrance.
Rear access to the track behind the villa is ideal for walking into Almogia without having to walk on the road. You will get 90% of the way to the village on this quiet and rarely used track. Walking to the village takes 15 minutes. There are bars and restaurants plus the big supermarket at the top of the village and other shops, bars and restaurants scattered throughout the maze of narrow streets and plazas throughout the vertical pueblo blanco.
The flat land below the villa is large enough to accommodate stables for horses, a horse training school and small paddock. Stables would very likely be given permission to be built because the property is on ‘Rustic’ rural land and agricultural buildings are positively encouraged to be constructed and used by the town hall. For hacking out, there is access to the track behind the villa that leads you to almost unending tracks all through the mountains behind the villa. You could even ride down to the river bed through Barranco del Sol. If you compete on horses, the access directly out onto the tarmac road down to the coastal motorway or North to the cross roads of Andalucia is perfect.
Almogia is a very historic Moorish village that was built more for access on donkeys, mules and double oxen carts. There are small shops selling everything you need for every day living throughout the maze of streets with pretty plazas and water fountains. There are numerous celebrations throughout the year and Almogia are currently the winners of the Verdiales folk music competition that takes place very year.
