3 bedrooms – 3 bathrooms – central heating – infinity pool and jacuzzi – 38,000m2 of level land – garage/workshop – beautiful original ‘era’ 

A 150m2 country house on two floors on a huge, flat, and very natural plot of land five minutes from the village of Jatar and 15 minutes from Alhama de Granada, with wonderful views of the mountains and the Sierra Nevada.

Situated in a very natural spot, just a few minutes drive from Jatar and with mountain ranges in all directions in the distance, this delightful old cortijo has been lovingly restored by the current owners to make a comfortable country home.  The house is located well within the large, flat plot, surrounded by nature, not a (human) sound to hear and totally private.  A driveway leads across the plot, between olive trees (some 350 trees) and fruit trees, to a large parking area.  From here, the house is located within a pretty stone walled area, with a lovely garden bursting with flowers in the Spring and Autumn, stunning 10 x 5m ‘infinity’ pool, with a semi-circular jacuzzi area on the lower level, a large garage/workshop, (66m2), outside kitchen and a pretty pool house.

The house is on two floors, with a fully fitted kitchen which leads into the dining room.  The dining room is open plan to the living room with wood burner fireplace and double patio doors to a large, covered outdoor terrace, ideal for outdoor living and dining, with wonderful views across to the Sierra Nevada mountain range.  Downstairs there is also a shower room.

The stairs lead up from the living room to the upper floor.  Here there are three double bedrooms, each with its own balcony over beautiful views.  Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.

The house has double glazed windows throughout and underfloor solar heating with oil fired backup system.

Outside, there is a West facing terrace, overlooking the beautiful pool and outside kitchen and the pool house incorporates an outside bathroom.  There is an ancient ‘era’ or threshing circle which has been lovingly restored and makes a beautiful feature.

The olive farm and fruit trees is run on a 100% organic basis, producing top quality product and there is a vegetable garden too.

This house is ideal for anyone wishing to have an alternative lifestyle in the sunshine, in a not remote, but very private and spacious environment.  Lake Bermejales, and its lakeside beaches and the many lovely walking trails in the stunning countryside all around, is just a short drive away, and the fascinating historic old town of Alhama de Granada, where one feels that time has stood still, is a 15 minute trip.

40 minutes to the beautiful city of Granada and around 1 hour to the coast.
