Built in the Moorish Hacienda style, the villa has a first floor tower which allows views in all directions across the surrounding countryside and mountains. The villa is accessed directly from a tarmac road and the gated entrance leads into a long driveway flanked by olives trees and palms.

Accommodation and layout of the property…
The entrance to the villa leads into a large hallway with a guest cloakroom which also has a shower. Stairs lead down to a very large garage and storage room and doors lead to the huge living room.
The living room has dual aspect windows and a striking feature fireplace. The windows overlook the gardens and the surrounding countryside and doors lead out to the large terrace which is perfect for entertaining and with part of the terrace open and part of it covered, it is the perfect space to enjoy both night and day.
Outside space is always important in Spain and this property comes with areas to enjoy the sunshine or shade – perfect for sunbathing or an alfresco lunch in the shade.
A separate dining room is located between the living room and the kitchen and again has double doors leading out to the outside terracing.
The kitchen is often described as the “heart of the home” and this one is no different – fully fitted with a range of wall and base level units topped off with granite work surfaces. There is a central island unit adding to preparation space and space for a breakfast table. Built in appliances include an oven, hob and double fridge/freezer.
A utility room is separate from the kitchen and is home to the washing machine and further storage.
A study or home office is located on the ground floor with a feature fireplace.
This home offers great flexibility in terms of how it can be used by future owners. Currently, there are two large first floor bedroom suites and two on the ground floor – some of which also have additional sitting rooms which could be used as further bedrooms. This flexibility offers a range of options for buyers in terms of accommodating guests but retaining privacy between the home owner and guests.
Currently, on the ground floor there is a large double bedroom with a fully fitted bathroom and a
further bedroom suite with an en-suite bathroom and a separate lounge area. This sitting room could easily be used as another bedroom but it works extremely well as the master bedroom suite.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find a double bedroom suite accessed by a beautiful ancient double wooden door.
The large suite has a separate seating area, an en-suite bathroom with a corner bath and shower column. There is also a separate dressing room. This master bedroom has a large private terrace and has air conditioning and underfloor heating.
The land and gardens…
As mentioned already, the villa comes with a number of terrace spaces to enjoy at different times of day and night – open or shaded and all of them with lovely views of the gardens and surrounding countryside.
At the rear of the villa is the spectacular swimming pool and sun terrace. The pool itself is large with an infinity end with stunning views across the countryside to the mountains in the distance.
The terrace areas are large with a terrific shaded area which can be used as an outside living space or to take shade when enjoying the pool.
This area is perfect for a BBQ and there is also a Jacuzzi.
The gardens are carefully planned with raised flower beds, many mature trees and shrubs and plenty of low maintenance areas.
The land extends to just over 10,000M2 of land which ensures privacy and seclusion from neighbours but with so much of the area low maintenance, it doesn’t prove to be too daunting in terms of workload!

Vera and the Almeria coast…
This stylish villa is just 1.5km from the historic town of Vera and just 15 minutes drive from the beaches that make this area so popular.
Vera is a small walled town with plenty of history dating back to the Moorish occupation of Spain.
The town of Vera has all the usual facilities you would expect from a bustling market town and with the E15 motorway a short distance away, there is easy access to the Almeria coastline and airports.
There are many options in terms of eating out – a wide range of tapas bars and restaurants and plenty of festivals held during the year to help you integrate into local life.
This is a year round town which doesn’t feel deserted during the winter. Obviously, during the summer months, the local beaches can be busy but with miles of golden sand, there is always a quiet spot to find.
Vera Playa is famous for its large Naturist Beach and community but there are plenty of beaches for those that don’t want an all over tan!
