AX893 – Finca Almendra, country home with holiday let unit – Sayalonga

4090m2 plot – 4 bed, 2 bath main house – 2 bed, 1 bath letting unit – gardens – pool – sea views

A beautifully kept, immaculate modern country house in the hills between Sayalonga (3.5kms) and Corumbela (1.5Kms) with beautiful sea and country views, and a successful 2 bed unit

Finca Almendra is ideal as a family or retirement home, with a second 2 bedroom unit adjoining the main house, perfect to continue the successful holiday letting business currently run by the owners, or as a guest unit for family and friends.

Location

The property is located between the mountain villages of Corumbela and Sayalonga, slightly closer to Corumbela, a 5 minute drive to the small shops and facilities in the village.  Sayalonga, a popular, picturesque village overlooking the Mediterranean, is 3.5 Kms across the countryside, (around 10 minutes in the car), with the coast another 15 minutes beyond.  Part of the road to the property is dirt track, in both directions.

The Main House

With an entrance from a covered terrace in an L shape of 40m2 with extending awnings, facing South West and the sea, the glass patio doors lead into the open plan living room with fireplace (woodburner), dining room and modern kitchen. The kitchen is separated via a high breakfast bar and there is a door from the kitchen out onto the terrace.  To the rear of this area are steps leading up to the only room (bedroom) on the first floor.  This lovely room is 9m2 and has a juliette style balcony overlooking the sea views and the pool area below.  There is also a useful store room on this floor.

Also to the rear of the open plan living area is a corridor leading to a fully fitted untility room with a door leading out to a rear patio.  There are two further bedrooms and an office space which is used as the fourth bedroom.  The master bedroom has a walk-through dressing area with built in wardrobes with quality wooden doors, leading to an elegant en-suite bathroom.  There is also a spacious family bathroom.

The house benefits from air conditioning and radiator gas central heating.

The Guest Unit

With its entrance further along the outer facade of the building, accessed via a private patio terrace, the entrance door leads into a hallway, with a large kitchen/dining/living room area with an open fireplace, two spacious double bedrooms and one bathroom.  The current owners let this unit very successfully to couples and families looking to escape from their busy lives and relax in total peace and tranquility.

The Gardens

The plot has a large gravel parking area for several cars at the end of the driveway, and the pool garden and terraces at the other end.  There is a beautiful water feature with water cascading down the hillside and tumbling over rocks, a lovely feature to enjoy upon arrival at the property.  Little paths have been dug out of the hillside in this area, with several areas to sit and contemplate the view.

A wide walkway lined with flowering bushes and plants takes one past the Guest Unit to the far end, and the pool garden.  This is a cool oasis, a little mini paradise, inviting one to jump into the cool waters of the 7.5 x 3.5m pool or relax on a sun lounger, without a care in the world.
