Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a family of 4 inc two teenages.We moved here in 2001 and haven´t looked back.We came for some adventure and a good- hearted place to bring up our kids & have not been disappointed. The beauty, culture and history of Granada has kept us stimulated and we have all grown to love this place ,its people and the lifestyle .

Why the Owner Chose Albaicín, Granada, Granada, Spain:
We were stunned by the beauty and feel of the Albayzin on our first visit.Later we started to inquire about houses for sale. Our house was the first one we looked at and the search stopped there .It was only a shell but it had & has an atmosphere hard to capture in a photo.The previous owner was Laura de los Rios the niece of Garcia Lorca- Granadas famous poet.She bought it for its light atmosphere and privacy all rare qualities in the houses here. It is our desire to live here in the near future. A thank you to all our guests for helping us in this quest. Also we are very lucky to be able to drive to the door of the house as the Albayzin is a restricted zone & many of the cobbled streets don´t have access.To keep it quiet & traffic free our street has a barrier that is up between 11am -2pm & after 8pm( you can always exit!)If you arrive during these times just park up and walk down to the house-When the barrier lifts you can bring your car closer.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The Caves which would have been the original house . They are always cool in Summer and warm in winter we are very lucky to have them as an integral part of the house . Our house is only a few minutes from the city center but above the pollution Also a few minutes from the sierra behind the Albayzin -for endless walks or cycling. The incredible sunsets.
