Property description

Casa Piedra is the only house in the old town with its own swimming pool. Pool heating is offered at a small supplementary charge. It is a unique architect designed property, built in the late 1960's and located high in the old town of Salobreña. There is nothing to compare - ALL other similar properties are located out of town - a car drive away from all the many amenities which Salobreña has to offer. Although there are houses all around, Casa Piedra is very spacious and private, set in its own hillside garden with a large tear drop swimming pool, several terraces and abundant tropical shrubs and plants. The views are spectacular. In one direction you see Las Alpujarras (foothills of the Sierra Nevada) and in the other you look down to the shimmering waters of the Med and Salobreña beach. It will take you 12 minutes to walk down to the beach - much less to local bars and restaurants in the old town.

NEW FOR 2015: Completely refurbished kitchen - it's new! All the terraces around the house have been relaid - and the entire house has been painted inside.

Ground Floor: Front door leads to lobby with marble staircase leading to first floor, landing and sun terrace.
Lounge: Spacious room with two large sofas; book-cases; very efficient wood burning stove for out of season. Door leads out to sun terrace and swimming pool. Steps up to open plan dining room.
Dining Room and Terrace: Indoor dining area; door out to terrace with large marble dining table which is main dining area. Overlooks swimming pool and views out to beach and sea.
Newly refurbished kitchen: Fully equipped including 2 refrigerators, freezer and much more. Leads to:
Shower room and toilet;
and Bedroom 4 with standard double bed, wardrobe, and window to passage-way. (This bedroom and shower room becomes en suite and is its own enclosed area.)
Back door to passage-way.

First Floor: Bedroom 1: 5' double bed; fitted wardrobe and drawers. Views over swimming pool, barbecue terrace and the sea. Steps down to en-suite bath/shower room/toilet all recently refurbished.
Bedroom 2: Very large room with super king size bed; spacious mirrored wardrobes with shelves and drawers. Sofa bed. TV. Views to sea. Across passage-way to refurbished large shower room/toilet.
Bedroom 3: Twin beds. Fitted wardrobe and drawers. Views over sun terrace. (Shares bathroom with bedroom 2.)
Upstairs Sun Terrace: Dining area and built in tiled bench seats in Andalusian style. Wrought iron work with flowering creepers. Views to mountains in one direction and beach in the other direction.
(NB Bedroom 4 is downstairs.)

The Swimming Pool and Garden: The swimming pool is being heated from Easter 2013. It has a maximum dimension of approx 9 metres and is approached down a small flight of steps. The depth ranges from approx 4'9' to 5'9' - there is no shallow end although the steps down allow the possibility of a gentle immersion if required. Gates, as a deterrent for small children, are installed around the house in strategic locations to fence off the swimming pool and open spaces. (Please enquire regarding charges for swimming pool heating.)

The house has six terrace areas with masses of pot plants. At the front door there is a cool shady terrace which looks out to the mountains and valley towards Motril. Above the garage there is a terrace for table tennis or sun bathing. Outside the lounge there is a pretty sun terrace. Below the swimming pool there is a shady terrace for barbecues and from which there are views to the town and out to sea. The dining terrace and upstairs sun terrace are described above.

Car: Recommended

Welcome to the Costa Tropical! Salobreña is on the coast about 1 hour east of Malaga airport and just 45 minutes south of Granada. This is the real Spain with no high rise development and no glitzy night life - just restaurants, tapas bars, 4kms of beaches, perhaps the odd disco and very friendly local people. The old town of Salobreña, once a Moorish stronghold was built on an imposing outcrop of rock visible from miles around; perched on the top of the hill and dominating the town from 105 metres above sea level are the 10th century castle and 16th century church. This is the 'casco antiguo', a maze of narrow roadways, white-washed houses, alleys and steep staircases. Here, all a stone's throw from Casa Piedra, you will discover the old town square with its hidden tapas bars, wonderful restaurants and a few quaint shops locked in their own time warp.

Other Activities: Quad bikes
