This is a lovingly restored, large traditional semi-detached house, half of an old cortijo, located in a very attractive Alpujarran hamlet, set in a beautiful valley on the Guadalfeo river.
The house and outbuildings comprise approximately 220 m2 built.
The accommodation is arranged as an entrance/dining area which leads into the kitchen with a large Norwegian wood-burning stove, off of which is a breakfast room. Steps from here lead down to a large bathroom and toilet. Off the kitchen is a large day room with fireplace and built-in cupboards with glazed doors that lead out to a good-sized patio with space for table and chairs. This area has attractive views over the village.
Steps lead down to a lower patio and a separate domed room which can be used as a studio, additional bedroom or for meditation. Below this is another room used for storage of firewood, materials and equipment such as the pump for pumping water up from the river to the water storage tank above the house.
The house has its own septic tank, sited below the garden area.
The garden consists of two terraces descending from the lower patio to a flat grassed area of about 90m2 below the house.
The first floor is reached via a staircase between the dining room and kitchen, and consists of a large landing area with windows and doors leading to a large twin aspect double bedroom, and a separate room with washbasin/WC with additional space to install a shower, if desired. A well-lit passage leads through to another large bedroom, off which is a single room, with an exterior door which leads on to a smaller upper patio.
This a special property for someone looking for a traditional Alpujarran house in a peaceful and friendly community, with a wide variety of birdlife, the sound of running water, tranquil atmosphere and clean air.
At the lower level of the house is a separate room, with its own exterior door, containing the batteries which provide 1.3kw electricity to the house via solar voltaic panels on the roof, and a gas water heater. Water is provided by a nearby stream.
Situated between Orgiva and Torvizcon, the property is only 15 mins drive from the former and just one hour to Granada and the beaches of the Costa Tropical.
