For sale direct from the owner!
This 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom country home is all about living in peace and quiet with few neighbours, no light pollution and privacy – yet with good access to civilization… just 10 mins’ drive to Torrecuevas and on to Almuñecar in 20 mins.
The house is located immediately inland from Almuñecar and has been well cared for by the current owner and is presented in “walk-in” condition.
There is a delightful blend of traditional country home features with modern comforts such as under-floor heating, an open-plan living space, a private bathroom for each bedroom and a good Internet speed.
♦ 3 double bedrooms & 3 bathrooms
♦ Each bedroom has a private bathroom that is modern and beautifully tiled.

♦ 197M2 total build.
♦ 5,616M2 land.
♦ 7M x 3.5M above ground swimming pool with filtration system and power points. The pool could be decked around with wooden steps down to a decked sunbathing terrace (if desired) because the pool is located on a platform of flat land ideal for this. It would be easy to create the ‘infinity’ effect.
♦ Impressive 1st floor master bedroom with double glazed patio doors out onto a huge roof terrace. The first floor also has a bathroom serving this bedroom which creates a very private master bedroom suite.
♦ Despite the master bedroom with bathroom on the first floor, the rest of the accommodation is on the ground floor giving flexibility.

♦ 80,000ltr water deposit fed from a community well with water pumped into the huge 80,000ltr deposit. A full tank lasts 6 months for use by the house and pool. An annual fee of €100 (paid in two instalments) is for the maintenance of the infrastructure. Cost per 6 months for water is just €40 (€6.60 per month). The well is registered and the house has water rights. The well has never run dry.
♦ 6M X 4M garage/workshop (if benches were to be removed a car could fit in the garage).
♦ Utility room located between the house & garage with water heater and washing machine.
♦ Access to the house is via a good quality 1km track for use by normal saloon cars. The track is relatively steep in places and perfectly safe but those who do not like heights may not enjoy the approach to and from this property.
♦ There are olive, almond and chirimoya (custard apple) trees on the land.
♦ This property is currently a full-time home with all the comforts installed that come with a permanent residence. However, this home is equally ideal for holiday letting!
Perfect holiday retreat
