The property benefits from thick walls, providing niches and other architectural features such as the terracotta floors, beams and woodwork, creating a property that while new, has the interest and features of a much older property. The character is maintained throughout, sympathetically providing the feel of old Andalucía.
The garden wraps around the house with a pergola draped In grapevines. Another arched pergola provides shade over the stairs from its mature wisteria. A variety of climbing and trailing plants encircle the perimeter of the house; some providing shade, others just showing off.
The mature garden areas immediately around the house have year-round interest with ancient olives, ornamental and fruit trees. These are underplanted with shrubs, succulents, perennials and bulbs from around the world. The gardens are surrounded by an ancient olive grove with walking paths zigzagging amongst the trees and down to the arroyo. Native bulbs, including daffodils, irises, orchids and freesias have been planted along the paths and under the trees.
Part of the land slopes downwards to the arroyo below accessed via a pathway. The land has tiered levels offering scope to install an above ground pool.
The surrounding views are breath-taking and the property provides complete privacy.
This property could create an excellent home and income e.g. Bed and Breakfast or independent apartment rentals.
