This beautiful Andalusian farmhouse cortijo, fully reformed and retaining many traditional features which was filmed and featured on on the television show, “A Place in the Sun” and it is easy to see why…

Sitting in over 20,000M2 of land including an ancient threshing circle, land with olive and almond trees and impressive gardens, the feeling is like an oasis of tranquillity amidst mature and colourful gardens.  It would be easy to imagine the property is isolated but this is not the case.

The gardens come with a range of fruit trees including oranges, lemons, limes and figs and many other climate appropriate plants.

The pool area is surrounded by the gardens and creates absolute privacy – there is the pool itself, a terraced area with separate shower and toilet facilities plus large detached workshop.

Access to the property is via a tarmac road and the final 300 metres is via a track leading to the electric gates through which the property is entered.  There is covered parking.

The property itself is a comfortable year-round home with bags of charm and lots of modern comforts including a full central heating system for those cooler months.

The key features of this delightful home include:

♦  A great location close to the Costa Tropical but not isolated

♦  Surrounded by beauty and in a very peaceful location

♦  Traditional features and bags of character throughout

♦  Well fitted kitchen with Silestone work surfaces

♦  Stylish and contemporary bathrooms

♦  Full gas fired central heating

♦  Solar hot water system to keep costs down

♦  Private pool area with 8m x 5m swimming pool and large terrace surrounded by gardens

♦  Featured on “A Place in the Sun” TV programme

♦  Los Moriscos Golf Club just 20mins away, 18 hole links course with great sea views!

This is a special house and a rare find, which is fully legal and has complete up to date paperwork. Viewing is strongly recommended for those looking for a quality home in the Costa Tropical/Lower Alpujarra region.

The property has full gas central heating via a ‘combi boiler’. The gas is stored in a 1000 litre tank which is located and filled at the rear of the house. There is a solar water heater which provides hot water during the summer and helps keep costs down during winter months by raising the natural cold water temperature thereby reducing gas consumption.

The gardens and land

The garden area is covered with ornamental plants and shrubs, it has a water course to allow natural running of winter rains. Feature paths with bridges over the water channel make exploring easy and interesting. The garden has become a haven for wildlife and the property is blessed with the company of many birds of southern Spain including many colourful summer visitors from Africa, such as bee-eaters and hoopoes.

The owners have tried to ensure that every detail has been thought about when reforming the house, including the automatic irrigation system for the gardens and an air source heat pump which warms up the water to the pool enabling many additional months of use.

In consideration of both ecological and financial considerations there is a very efficient solar water heater for domestic use and also “grey water” tanks. Useable water from the house is fed to cisterns from where such water may be re-utilised for garden use in the summer.

There is a very smart fully tiled and illuminated pool area with terracing bordered by palms and mature plants. The pool is 8 X 5 metres. It has a feature waterfall from the pool pump house and store which also has an outside shower and indoor cloakroom/WC with tiled floor and splash-back.

Beyond the pool area there is a substantial detached outbuilding with power and light which is currently used as the workshop, store and “man-cave’. Should a project be required this is large enough to convert to a casita (small guest annex) having both water and electricity to the building.

Location – Costa Tropical

Located just 20 minutes from the unspoilt beaches of the Costa Tropical and 10 minutes from the white village of Velez de Benaudalla, this home really does offer the best of both worlds.

Additional facilities, including an excellent hospital, can be found 15 minutes away in the town of Motril.

The location lets you feel that you are in the middle of nowhere, private and quiet and not overlooked, yet you are just a few kms from the main motorway which means that the centre of Granada and the Alhambra Palace can be reached in only 45 minutes.

With the airport at Malaga only an hour away and that of Granada 45 minutes, the property has access to many international destinations, plus you could be skiing in the Sierra Nevada in less than 1 hour.
