A mountain hideaway home with swimming pool and panoramic mountain/sea views. A 15 min 4 x 4 car journey from the coast brings you to the peace and tranquility that is Casa Sofia.

Located on a plot of around 1000m2 on a sunny hillside, on the side of a very peaceful river valley, this delightful country house is guaranteed to bring peace and calm to anyone staying here!  There are some little, ancient country houses around, so it is not too isolated, but the location is ideal for anyone wishing to be amongst nature, away from it all, and yet, only a 15 minute ride through the countryside to the coast.  The river, which runs during the Winter and the Spring, is alive with birdsong, and in the late Spring, nightingales compete to be heard over and above all others!

A track running due North from the beach, winds its way along the side of the river valley, and Casa Sofia has its own entrance gate, driveway and sizeable, flat parking area.  There is an arched covered terrace area for outside living and dining of 8x3m, with additional pergola covered area of 8×3, overlooking flowering gardens and the 8 x 4m pool at a depth of 2m throughout, with walk-in steps, is located to one side, along with a poolside sun-bathing terrace. The views beyond area magnificent, of the country hills and the distance glimmer of the sea.

The villa is in good condition and can be enjoyed immediately without requiring work.  However, there is scope for further improvement if required.

From the arched covered terrace, the front door leads into the double-aspect lounge, which has purpose built storage units incorporating book shelves and cupboards that house the electrical equipment, books, DVD player, CD’s etc. and keeps them out of sight. There is a work area for a computer/laptop, printer and telephone.  This room also has an air-conditioner unit (cooling & heating), a wood burning stove and the property also has a portable gas fire and an electric eco panel radiator in the lounge. This room is 5 x 4.5m and has an open hatch to the right, into the kitchen.

The kitchen, 3.25 x 3m, is fully fitted with dishwasher, microwave and mini oven as well as a full sized electric oven and a gas hob, and plenty of storage units.  Further white goods are located in the utility room, which is located via a door from the outside (4 x 1m) and houses a washing machine, a tumble drier, upright freezer and a large “beer” fridge, plus the gas water heater for days when the solar system needs a boost.

The master bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom with shower unit, bath, bidet, w.c. and wash hand basin/vanity unit with storage under. The master bedroom is furnished with two wardrobes with two drawers under, matching dressing table and two further small 4 drawer units. The 150cm bed with headboard has a cabinet to one side and there is a TV attached to the wall.  This bedroom is 4 x 3m, and the en-suite bathroom is 3 x 2m.

The second bedroom is located through an arched opening from the living room, from within a small distribution area.  It has a double bed with headboard, two wardrobes both with three sections and drawers underneath, plus two bedside cabinets and an eco electric panel radiator. This room is 4 x 3.5m.

Close to bedroom 2 is the guest bathroom which has a double open shower unit with a bidet, w.c. and wash hand basin.

The garden has been lovingly planted with drought tolerant plants, with the intention to make Casa Sofia very private.  Mature shrubs screen the property to ensure complete privacy.

To the side of the house, a spiral staircase leads up to the roof terrace (5 x 4m) where the solar hot water system is situated.

The water supply is by a private bore hole, with a 25,000L water deposit for water storage.  Water is automatically pumped from the well to the water deposit and from there the water is electrically softened and then filtered at the kitchen sink.

Additional outbuildings:  A covered wood store. Additional room for storage. Above the water deposit there is a store room. A pump house for the pool chemicals is located underground. A further store houses gardening equipment and tools (this is attached to the en-suite bathroom but can only be accessed from the outside).

The house has double glazing throughout with integral mosquito netting, the same tiled flooring throughout and there is a burglar alarm.

The villa can be sold as seen (minus personal items) should that be what the buyer requires, otherwise all furniture can be removed if preferred.  An excellent, 13 year old Hyundai Santa Fe 4×4 car in perfect condition, with only 95,000Kms on the clock, is also being sold with the property.
