Amenities and Features
Essential Properties are delighted to offer this spectacular country property for sale in Alhaurín el Grande.
An opportunity to own a truly remarkable country property, which has been developed over many years by the current owners. It has been lovingly restored with many original features as well as the introduction of lighting and artwork from around the world. The landscaped gardens have been designed to offer different experiences where you can sit and relax as you wander through them.
The main entrance to the property offers a glimpse of its quality with majestic gates and flower beds welcoming you into the grounds. The 100-metre-long driveway passes at the side of the finca and arrives at a generous parking area for up to 10 cars. To approach the house, you walk through the first of the formal garden areas, which is populated with various types of mature palms and trees with manicured lawns to either side of the pathway until you arrive at a wrought iron floral archway; this is the gateway to the second garden area which boasts a stunning water feature and covered terrace area with kitchen. There are numerous places to sit on the surrounding terrace and enjoy the sound of the water with views to the mountains. In the next garden there is a beautiful sculpture based on the famous Michaelangelo’s Pietà statue in the Vatican. The sculpture overlooks a part of the garden where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings before you enter to the heart of the gardens.
The pool area can only be described as a work of art and design. The pool measures a generous 15x7m and sits at the centre of a gallery of statues and sculptures imported from all around the world to give the impression of being in Rome. Next you will enter another feature garden with a fountain and decorated with statues from Egypt. At the end of your journey you can sit and relax in the Japanese garden with the impressive statue of Buddha guarded by the Imperial Guardian Lions (or Fu Dogs) and beautifully manicured trees and shrubs. The gardens are all immaculately designed and each individual section offers an experience which has to be seen to be believed.
The property has been the location of many hosted events in the past. To cater for the number of guests (up to 100), the large 100m² workshop has been used as both storeroom and kitchen.
