The living room is spacious and dual aspect with double doors leading out to the glazed garden room which in turn, leads out to the gardens. This brings in so much light to the living area and really connects the inside with the outside.

The kitchen comes with wall and base level storage units and there is space for all the usual appliances including dishwasher and american style fridge/freezer. There is a built in oven and gas hob.

Outside, there is a large (50M2) workshop which can be used for a variety of purposes. The building is currently split into two sections by way of a stud wall – one half is used as a worshop and tool store and the other side is a very clean hobby room for sewing. This part is fitted with state of the art sewing machines. Both sides have lots of sockets and lights and the hobby room side benefits from Air/Con and a tiled floor.
Alcaucin and the Axarquia region…
This villa is within walking distance of the pretty “pueblo blanco” of Alcaucin. Sitting just below the Sierra de Tejeda and the Maroma mountain, this charming village has long been a destination for tourists and residents alike.
The village benefits from a wide range of amenities including a hotel, various cafés and bars, restaurants and bakers. A chemist, banks and supermarkets make this a village that thrives throughout the year – this is not a village packed during the summer and closed in the winter.
This part of the Axarquia region is one of the most popular with the adjacent Sierra de Tejeda a beautiful Natural Park to explore – walking, cycling, birdwatching, painting and many other past times are available to enjoy.
Equally, you are only a short drive to Lake Vinuela and a bit further on, the coast at Velez Malaga. The airport at Malaga is an hour’s drive.
This is a popular area with many expats, both from the UK and many other countries and there are many clubs and communities which you can get involved with.
It is very rare to find a high quality villa with this much peace and tranquillity which is still within walking distance of a popular village such as Alcaucin.
The villa itself offers comfortable accommodation but with the additional workshop, you have the flexibility that this extra accommodation can be used in a number of ways.
The views are glorious and there is plenty of outside space to enjoy the best of the Spanish climate.
There is even two cars available to buy – it can be an easy way to get a car sorted as the transfer can be dealt with by the lawyers. If bought, these cars will be dealt with outside of the house price so as not to attract a tax charge.
