3 bedrooms – 2 bathrooms – pool and barbecue area – 4,000m2 plot

A well established, nicely presented country house in an idyllic country setting very close to the village of Alcaucin with beautiful views

A well kept, 15 year old house on around 4,000m2 of land mainly laid to gardens and terraces plus a tree-lined driveway and large car parking area.  In the car park is an independent double garage of around 36m2 (5 x 5.5m approx.) ideal for anyone wishing to have a separate workshop or a lockup garage for more than one car.

Several pretty arbours lead through from the car park to a garden courtyard area by the house.   To the side is lovely terracing with bordering plants overlooking beautiful views down into the valley, and towards Lake Viñuela, and around the South side of the house is the rear covered terrace (6 x 3m), ideal for outside living.  From here steps lead down to the pool terrace with plenty of tiled sunbathing areas and a further covered area fitted with a complete outside kitchen – the perfect year-round outside living space!  The pool is 8 x 4m and steps to one side lead to a lower level with wood store area and the pool house (6.5 x 3m), and easy access to the private tree-lined driveway gates.

The rest of the land is planted mainly with almond trees and there is a magnificent orange/lemon tree producing both fruits on the same tree!  Also planted extensively are grapevines.

To one side of the house a lovely conservatory, with windows on three sides, ideal for the Winter as it heats up so well, and in the Summer with the windows open it does not get hot.  From here, the front door leads into a hallway.  To the left is the fully fitted kitchen (4 x 3m) with door at the far end, which leads back out to the garden courtyard near the car park area, under a small covered porch.

To the right of the hall is the spacious, L shaped living and dining room (32m2) with fireplace and sliding glass patio door leading out to the side terrace.

Back in the hallway, straight ahead is access to the bedrooms and bathrooms.  To the left is Bedroom 1 (4 x 3m) with window to the courtyard, and next door is the family shower room with marvelous, walk-in shower with top quality tiles and units (3 x 2.5m).  To the right, along the corridor is bedroom 2 (4 x 3m) with window to the rear and beyond is the master bedroom, which is a generous 8 x 4m including excellent built-in wardrobes along one wall, sliding glass patio doors leading out onto the covered terrace, and access to the ensuite bathroom with bath and overhead shower (3 x 2m).

This delightful house is perfect for a retired couple looking to relocate to this lovely area.  It is in the mountains and yet not too far up and with only a very short access track.  There are other neighbours around but not too near.  It is possible to walk to the village (about 20 minutes across countryside).  And it is within 25 minutes of the coast at Torre del Mar and 20 minutes to the large, historic town of Velez-Malaga.

The entire property is gated and fenced and has two entrance access roads.   There is plenty of scope for further gardening and landscaping too, for anyone who wishes to have a gardening project.

A good choice house for anyone looking for an idyllic country setting that is easy to access, comfortable and practical.
