Beautifully presented modern cortijo with a traditional rustic twist, the right mix of modern convenience with a touch of rustic charm. Double gates lead into a gravelled parking area with space for three or four cars. The gravel path leads you to the front of the house, a wooden door leads you into the spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen. There are four sets of French doors overlooking the terrace and barbecue area, West facing for the afternoon sun. There is a closed in glass fronted fireplace for cosy winter evenings. The kitchen has a traditional style but is modern enough without having that "fitted" look. There are storage drawers and fitted appliances, including dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven. A large marble topped island houses the fridge and freezer.There is also a pantry which houses an additional fridge, washing machine and shelving. A set of lovely traditional doors separate the bedroom wing from the living accommodation. A atrium area with lots of windows allow light to flood into the passage way, off of this there is access to the five bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with a freestanding bath in the master bedroom and its own woodburning stove. Outside the flat land of 1588m2 is planted with a variety of fruit trees and some lovely old olive trees, being flat it is easy and low maintanance. The swimming pool has a shalllow area for young children and then a longer deeper part for those who love a good swim. There is also a wooden cabin beside the pool making a great pool room or can be used for yoga, studio for painting etc. A perfect family home ready to move into or can continue to be used as a holiday let as it has a tourist licence in place. Your dream home in The Alpujarra’s.

The Moors lived until the end of the 16th century in the Alpujarras. We not only still use their water channels and water deposits, but their original arabic names too. A proposal has recently been submitted to declare the Alpujarras a UNESCO world heritage site.
Hiking is pure pleasure here. It takes a 20 minute car drive to reach the borders of the National Park of Sierra Nevada. You can watch eagles circle in the blue skies, see ibexes fearlessly cross the cliffs above you and feel part of the magnificence of untouched nature all around.
