3 bedrooms – 1 bathroom – beautiful gardens and terraces – pool and garage – wooden chalet/workshop – 4000m2 plot

A comfortable, modern, detached villa, with rustic touches, built in 2001 using a unique building technique guaranteeing maximum insulation.  The house overlooks Lake Viñuela, with easy access and within only 20 minutes’ drive from the coast.

Situated in a quiet neighbourhood with other country houses nearby, (not a development or urbanisation), this comfortable detached house is all on one level, with level gardens, and a wonderful first-line view of the lake.

Electric gates lead into a spacious parking area with two carports and a garage of 27.5m2 (currently used as a workshop and store).  Beyond the garage is an on-ground wooden chalet (4 x 4m) with its own little covered terrace (2 x 4m) used currently as a work/music studio, with a bar and bar stools.  This building can be removed or sold on, should the future owner not need it.

This unique house, built using the Euromac system providing ultimate insulation, meaning that heating or cooling is hardly ever required, means that it is comfortable all year round and offers significant heating and cooling savings.

To the front is a large covered terrace area, ideal for outside living, and from here is access to the house via the front door.  The front door leads into a hallway, with kitchen to the left, living/dining room ahead, and a short corridor to the right leads to the three bedrooms and family bathroom.  The kitchen, 3.1 x 3m, is fully fitted with a window to the front terrace.  The living room is a spacious 7.5 x 4.5m, with beamed ceiling and a brick decorated rustic style fireplace, as well as patio doors to the garden and to the conservatory.  The conservatory, a terrace with glass curtains, is 7.8 x 2m with arches and wonderful views of the lawn, lake and mountains.

From the hallway, the short corridor leads to the family bathroom to the right with bath and overhead shower, ‘his and hers’ wash basins, separate shower unit and WC (3.5 x 2m), bedroom 1 to the left (4 x 3.5m), bedroom 2 to the right beyond the bathroom (4 x 3.5m) and bedroom 3 to the far end (5 x 3m) with patio door to the conservatory.  This last room is currently used as a workshop, but the equipment and items in this room shown on the photograph will be removed upon sale of the property.

The rear garden is laid to lawn, with a delightful view of the lake, the mountains and the dramatic U-cut shape of the Zafarraya mountain pass in the distance.  There is an 8 x 4m pool with pool cover, plus steps down to the pool house, below the pool terrace.  The rest of the land slopes down the hill, although it would be possible to make paths leading down to this land.
