Elegant Country House with Extensive 360˚ Views
A substantial property set in a private fully fenced garden in which to enjoy sunshine and stunning scenery.
Situated approximately 3km from the lovely village of Uleila del Campo, access from the main road is via a tarmac road leading to automated electric front gates. With ample parking for a number of vehicles the gravel driveway extends along two sides of the property for ease of access - perfect if you have a horse lorry or trailer
The traditional wooden double front door opens into a welcoming hallway with further doors leading out to the living area and kitchen. Andalusian tiles provide for consistent and easily maintained flooring throughout.
The double height living area allows for a cooler interior during the many warm summer months whilst an elegant wood-fired stove provides warmth and atmosphere on winter nights. It also fires radiators in the two downstairs bedrooms for additional comfort. There is an under stairs cupboard to help ensure a clutter-free home.
The stylish staircase leads up to a wonderful minstrel’s gallery which overlooks the living area and adds a touch of glamour to an already impressive home. The gallery leads to the master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite shower, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a further separate WC. Both bedrooms have radiators and traditional wooden shutters.
The open-plan kitchen has been recently modernised with new Siemens built-in appliances and a quality Silestone™ work surface. The classic wood-burning range cooker gives further warmth and fires the remaining radiators throughout the house. There is ample room for a large dining table whilst the feature central island provides an ideal platform from which to entertain around the year. Off the kitchen is a pantry/utility room offering further storage solutions and plumbing for a washing machine.
A small hallway is found off the kitchen and leads to a family bathroom, two further bedrooms with radiators and shutters to windows. There is also access a large double integral garage.
A stable door leads from the kitchen to a covered East terrace on which to enjoy breakfast at sunrise or to keep cool in the afternoon. A gate allows access from the driveway to the kitchen for easy loading and unloading. A similar, fully-enclosed and double glazed west terrace is located on the other side of the living area. Both terraces are designed to help regulate a more ambient temperature throughout the year and to enjoy the mountain views.
The west terrace leads out to swimming pool and surrounding patio with new pergola. It is this area which is used to enjoy summer barbecues and to witness some phenomenal sunsets. The private garden is fully fenced and perfect for pets. To the front of the property is a fenced hard-standing area with a small outbuilding currently used as a kennel. It could equally be used as a base for stabling. Further fencing provides access to a large dog run. Adjacent to the garage is a further outbuilding which houses one of two water deposits and is ideal for wood storage.
At the end of the fenced garden is a level recreation area with a football goal where a number of sports and hobbies, from petanque to badminton, are enjoyed. Currently approx. 250m2 this area can be easily extended to create a decent sized sand school or round pen.
The garden boasts a number of young and mature fruit trees including olive, almond, fig, orange, lime, lemon, pomegranate and nispe. Other trees include palms, peppercorn and the wonderful jacaranda, whilst some of the plants include lavender, rose, yuccas, cactus and jasmine among many others.
Beyond the private fenced garden lies the main part of the plot which mainly planted to olive and almond trees. There is also a further outbuilding from which the legalised private well is powered.
