4 bedrooms - 3 bathrooms - top quality build - pool and gardens - storage and open garage area - 5100m2 of land with almond trees
A particularly attractive, top quality country house, 195m2, with excellent access and breathtaking views.
Located through private electric gates, and down a private driveway off a concrete country lane, this beautiful house offers top quality living in a peaceful, natural country environment with wonderful views and plenty of sunshine!
The house is located on a plot of 5100m2 which is divided into two parts: the upper part with driveway leading to the house, gardens, pool terrace and under terrace garage/store area, and the lower part of the plot, also with driveway, to the almond grove and field.
There is plenty of space for parking cars at the end of the top drive, by the house, although the lower drive leads to the car port and lower store area. Access to the gardens, from the top car parking area, is via a door in a garden wall, leading to a beautiful and spacious covered terrace area with stunning views of the countryside and valley to the South and the mountains to the North East.
The covered terrace follows the house around the corner, and opens out onto the open pool terrace. The pool is 8 x 4m plus 'Roman' steps in a semi circle leading down into the water. There is a beautiful and colourful motif on the base of the pool making it particularly attractive and unusual. Beyond the pool is an open barbeque terrace for outdoor dining with hooks for a 'sail' cover for the warmer months, to protect against the sun. Here, a quality brick-built barbeque is located for outdoor cooking, and a passage and steps down one side leading to the lower level.
On the lower level is the covered car port (5 x 3m) with pull-down blind to protect the car from the sun, with a door to access the large store room and pool house (5 x 3m). There is also a covered log store. From this point, the lower drive winds around the land to the main gates.
Back at the house, the covered terrace of 4 x 2m leads to the attractive wooden front door. Inside, the ground floor has a beautiful, open plan style, with a theme of dark wooden details, terracotta floors and quality marble inlaid floor detail and a warm, relaxed feel throughout.
To the right is the dining room area (4 x 3.25m), a bright and sunny room with large windows and double patio doors, which leads straight through to the top quality kitchen (4 x 3.5m). The kitchen is fully fitted, with solid, polished wood work surfaces and beautiful units and a built-in breakfast bar.
To the left of the entrance is the living room, a spacious and comfortable 7 x 4.5m with windows to the pool and a woodburner in a central location. To the far end is a pretty door to an under-stairs store area and door to the ground floor double bedroom (4 x 3m) and ensuite bathroom with quality finishings and glass shower unit.
The stairs with solid wooden bannisters, lead from the centre of the open plan ground floor up to a large, spacious, open plan area, currently furnished as an upstairs living or reading area, with huge windows with remarkable views over the mountains. To one side of this large landing area are doors to a double bedroom (4 x 4.25m) with very large built-in wardrobes and views over the pool terrace, a family bathroom with bath (2.5 x 2m) a further double bedroom currently furnished with just a single bed (3 x 3.25m) and, on the other side of the landing, the master bedroom with views over the pool, wall-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes and an absolutely exquisite ensuite bathroom (2 x 2m) with glass shower unit, sloping ceiling and skylight window.
This whole house has a real feeling of warmth and quality. It has been beautifully designed with wood, stone and brick features inside and out. The marriage of rustic features (quality wooden windows, amazingly thick walls, traditional flooring and large - but not overdone - wooden beams) and modern details (high ceilings, marble inset, large open plan spaces, modern bathrooms) works perfectly to offer a stunning and pleasing result. This is a home to inspire and satisfy, set in equally stunning country surroundings!
This property has no dirt track and is located within a very short drive (5 minutes) from local facilities. The village of Alcaucin, one of the most picturesque in the area, is located within 10 minutes of the house and stunning Lake Viñuela the same distance. Under half an hour from the coast and within 50 minutes of Malaga.
