One enters the property from a quiet country lane through attractive gates into a large private courtyard offering parking for several vehicles.
A fabulous terrace extends along the entire front of the house offering views over the beautiful established gardens to the Andalucian countryside beyond.
The living accommodation extends to 420m2 and is distributed over two levels of 210m2 on each level.
One enters from the front terrace into a welcoming reception room which leads through to a spacious lounge.
To the rear of the property is an ample dining kitchen which hosts an attractive feature fireplace and which enjoys an adjoining “walk-in” pantry.
A corridor leads through to the downstairs sleeping wing which hosts 2 double bedrooms and a complete bathroom.
An attractive open plan staircase leads to the upper level which offers a large landing area which could be ideal for use as an upstairs sitting room or library or study area.

To the rear of the house is a very charming Andalucian patio which hosts a 8m x 4m swimming pool and several very attractive areas which were historically used as stalls for livestock such as cattle and mules but which could be exploited for a variety of uses.
One of them already houses the pump and filter for the swimming pool and another has been developed as a Summer kitchen by the current owners.
There are various other very attractive outdoor features such as the traditional bread oven , an aviary and various handy outbuildings.
This property has been immaculately maintained by the current owners .

This property is of such generous proportions that it offers a potential buyer a fabulous large family home but it also offers the possibility for development into a rural tourism business.
