TRADITIONAL ANDALUSIAN HOUSE WITH LOTS OF CHARACTER & A DELIGHTFUL COBBLED COURTYARD
This elegant village property is very traditional and is built around an attractive large courtyard. The house is very welcoming with an abundance of character and ‘old world’ Spanish charm. It has access from two streets and is centrally located, a few minutes walk from a variety of shops, tapas bars and several high-quality restaurants.This is a very interesting, rambling property that has has been beautifully renovated over recent years, transforming it into a stylish home with many Moorish features and a lovely ambience. It is quite quirky with lots of nooks and crannies, painted oak beams, alcoves with concealed lighting, terracotta floor tiles (ground floor), and the benefit of central heating and double glazing throughout. It would also be possible to add an extra storey with a roof terrace, if desired (subject to building licence).
At the heart of the property, the pretty cobbled courtyard is surrounded by exotic flowering plants and shrubs, is very private and a perfect spot for al-fresco dining. There is also plenty of room for a plunge pool to be installed in the courtyard.
The antique wood entrance doors lead into a very spacious open-plan living room. As well as a sitting area there is an open fire in one corner used as the ‘snug’ during winter months, and a dining area. A feature arch leads into the large well-fitted kitchen with dining table and a wood-burning stove. There is also a separate walk-in pantry and a guest W.C. The kitchen has glazed doors leading into the large cobbled courtyard where there is a separate built-in seating area and store-room. The courtyard also provides access to the Jacuzzi area, office, and a small guest studio at first floor level.
The first floor landing features an attractive mezzanine level that is currently used as a library. The remainder of this floor comprises a spacious, beautifully presented master bedroom with a high ceiling, light oak flooring, built-in wardrobes and a glazed door leading to the covered veranda which overlooks the courtyard. There is a separate good-sized bathroom with twin basins; two double guest bedrooms with light oak flooring and built-in wardrobes. (It would be possible to form an en-suite shower room adjacent to the master bedroom).
The large covered veranda leads round to the rear side of the house where there is a large office/work-room with wood-burning stove, a fabulous purpose built Spa/Jacuzzi, a shower-room and storage cupboard. There is also a small guest studio comprising a light and airy sitting room with sofa bed and glazed sliding doors leading to a small terrace overlooking the courtyard.
