A top quality country house, in a magical location, with stunning 360º views, divided into the main house, and guest wing, all accessed from a central patio with fountain – within 1.3Kms from Alcaucin village

For anyone looking for a luxurious, ultimate quality country house on its own little hill with stunning views, total privacy, and yet, within striking distance of a beautiful, picturesque mountain village – and only half an hour from the coast – this wonderful property is well worth considering.

Alcaucin village, with its stunning mountain views and direct access to the Maroma and the natural park, is situated around 30 minutes inland from the coast at Torre del Mar and within one hour of Malaga airport.  It is well known for its beautiful streets, excellent facilities and magnificent ‘fiestas’.

El Cerrillo is just over one kilometre from the village, along a country lane, past other beautiful detached country houses.  The property, whilst not far from other houses, benefits from total privacy, with the only house nearby being at least 100m from the property and well out of the way.

The Grounds – 5348m2
Automatic gates lead into the grounds, along a concrete driveway, past the beautiful orchards and up a tree lined drive to the large parking area in front of the house.

The orchard is planted with a wonderful assortment of citrus fruit trees and tropical fruit trees, including lemon, mandarin, plum, avocado, mango, fig and many more.  It is easy to access and experimenting with the fruit trees is an interesting and rewarding pasttime.

The rest of the plot falls steeply to one side of the house, and is in its natural state.  Immediately around the house as beautiful terraces and gardens, and to the other side, the pool terrace with its stunning South facing views.

The House
Two huge, carved wooden doors lead from the car park and outer seating terrace, into the magnificent inner courtyard with a centrally located fountain.  To the right is the guest wing, consisting of a beautiful kitchen/dining room, a large bathroom, beautifully tiled and with both a walk-in shower and a bath, and two double bedrooms.  One of the double bedrooms is currently furnished as a living room area for guests, but a double bed can be added, or a double sofa bed.  All rooms have stunning views across the countryside, and both bedrooms have double doors onto terraces.

To the left, and ahead, in the courtyard, is the main house. A door to the left leads into the fully fitted kitchen,  with quality units and equipment thorughout, and beautiful lighting.  Beyond is a useful utility room with door out to the pool terrace, and another door leading to a separate WC.

The living/dining room is in an L-shape, with huge vaulted ceilings, giving a true sense of space, height and light.  In one corner, a spiral staircase leads up to the mezzanine libary or office area, with wooden bannister overlooking the room below.  There are three sets of double patio doors in the living/dining room, two of which (sliding doors) lead to a covered terrace equipped with glass curtains, such that in the Winter this becomes an additional room or ‘conservatory’ room, and in the Summer it is open.  Beyond this area is an open sun terrace.  The other doors lead straight out onto the pool terrace.  The living/dining room has a highly efficient log burner for the colder months.

Beyond the kitchen, a short corridor equipped with fitted wardrobes with quality wooden doors leads through to the main bedroom (25m2) with its own door out to both the courtyard and to the car parking area.  This room benefits from a large ensuite bathroom with both walk-in shower and bath.

This stunning home is equipped with oil-fired central heating via modern radiators throughout the property, air conditioning in all bedrooms and the living/dining room, and ceiling fans in all rooms.  There are also heated towel rails in the bathrooms.  All internal doors are top quality solid wood, and exterior doors and windows are wood effect hermetically sealing PVC with integrated mosquito nets, double glazing, aluminium security blinds and railings.

Adjoining the house, with entrance for a  vehicle to the front and a back door leading to the rear pool terrace, is the garage (24m2) with a tool shed next to it.  Should anyone prefer, there is the possibility of converting the garage into an additional ensuite bedroom.
