♦ 3 double bedrooms and 1 spectacular bathroom. The bathroom was hand crafted by the current owner in mosaic to create stunning images. This is from floor to ceiling and it is astonishing!
♦ The house was reformed on a licence by the current owners in 2012. The build features a concrete and metal roof with high specification insulation and topped with rustic roof tiles. Security double glazing to windows and doors because the owners ideally did not want metal bars at the windows but they sadly had to in order to insure the property. They have blended rustic and contemporary very cleverly to benefit from modern comforts, yet the home has the feeling of being a traditional finca.
♦ The house is powered by a huge solar panel that automatically tracks the sun and then energy is stored in banks of batteries and a modern system ensures there is always enough power for the house.
♦ Water is from the mains, however the current owners fill their summer pool from the river each Spring and the river could be used to water vegetables if grown down by the river which borders the land. The cost for main water is low at 18 Euros per month for water and rubbish collection.

♦ This property offers an olive orchard of 30 mature trees, a private forest and an intimate and pretty front terrace with huge pomegranate tree for shade. There is also a roof terrace with views of El Puerto de las Palomas on the edge of El Parque Natural de Las Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas.
♦ It would be possible to live an almost self sufficient life on this land if that was desired. There is ample water under the land and a well or bore hole could be dug to complement the mains water. Produce could easily be grown too and even livestock kept. Pigs would thrive under the trees in the forest. Chickens would also do very well here.
♦ The forest and olive orchard ensures the house has wood to fuel 3 stoves burning 4 months of the year to ensure a warm and comfortable home (living room, 2nd bedroom/music room and the kitchen). If additional wood is required, there are local suppliers who will bring wood. The annual cost to heat the house with olive and oak is 300 Euros per year.
