Situation and Outside space
This fabulous property lies close to the village of Canillas de Aceituno and within easy reach of the main road from Torre del Mar to Lake Viñuela.
The property is set within over 14,000 m² of fenced, irrigated land planted with grapevines and mature trees including olive, pomegranate, nispero, fig and avocado.
The excellent access is from the quiet main road which leads directly to the electrically operated gates, long concrete driveway and natural stone parking area.
Immediately to the left of the gated entrance a track leads through the trees to the equine facilities which include 3 stables and a tack room (75.61 m²) and a purpose built corral.
Accessed via steps to the rear of the main house, the poultry facilities include a chicken coop (35.75 m²) and outside space for a chicken run (69.30 m²).
The fully fenced basketball court is adjacent to the parking area.
The main house is situated in a commanding elevated south facing position and the huge tiled sun terrace and pool area in front of the property is edged with attractive walling and decorative railings.
To one side there is a raised covered seating area (15.57m²) with ornate arches, tiling and brickwork.
A covered terrace with archways and beautiful natural stone runs the full length of the front and one side of the main house which is tiled al round with a further seating area edged with raised flower beds to the rear.
The entire property is superbly finished in a gorgeous rustic style with attractive brickwork, exquisite dark wooden doors, wooden window frames and shutters and lots of lovely features – a very different style of property from that of the many modern villas currently for sale.
The main entrance to the house is from the covered terrace via a stunning wooden front door and into the entrance hall (4.2m x 3.4m).
To the left is the large traditional style kitchen which has an adjoining utility room (2.8m x 1.7m) and a useful in-built cupboard (3.0m x 1.1m).
From the entrance hall double wooden doors lead into the dining room and then on through into the comfortable living room which has a stone fireplace with open fire.
From the entrance hall there is access into a hallway (6.6m x 1.2m) and the remaining accommodation:
Steps from the pool area lead down to the separate annexe (145.19 m²) which has its own entrance from the parking area and which could be used in any number of different ways.
The annexe comprises one vast room (12.7m x 7.3m) with a central kitchen area and an open fire and it is currently used as a sitting room/games room.
To one end of the main room there is a bathroom (2.8m x 1.6m) which has a bath with a shower over and a bodega (wine cellar) (4.2m x 3.2m).
The annexe could easily be converted to provide a completely different layout incorporating bedrooms, bathrooms, living space and kitchen facilities or it could be used as one large dining area.
Separate Guest Accommodation
The separate guest accommodation (25.75 m²) is adjacent to the basketball court. This is currently one large room but it could be divided to provide two bedrooms, one bedroom and one bathroom or a completely self-contained guest apartment.
