This impressive Andalucian farmhouse, located in an elevated position, amongst olive and almond groves, has the most stunning views. Overlooking the valley, across white-washed villages, the scenery stretches across to the Tejeda mountain range. The farmhouse has been a family home for many years and in the process, has been lovingly restored to a high standard yet has retained many of its original features. The rooms all have the traditional beamed ceilings, many with terracotta floor tiles, open fire places/wood burning stoves, decorative wrought iron lights and beautiful wooden doors. 'Modern' and 'comfort' have been sympathetically introduced and the farmhouse is furnished in an ecclectic fashion including antiques along with modern necessities. The large farmhouse kitchen is the core of the house, along with plenty of rooms to relax, watch tv and read. The bedrooms are all prepared with fresh cotton linen and towels, are spacious and airy and again all have spectacular views. The outside of the property is a delight and is an important part of a normal holiday enjoying the pool, gardens and views. The mature gardens with mediterranenan trees, flowers and shrubs is a beautiful feature of the property. There is a newly added outside kitchen with fridge, oven and hob close to the small courtyard area finished in local stone which is cool and shaded. There is also a large gas BBQ. The terraces are extensive, the main one surrounding the pool and has sunbeds all with comfortable padded cushions.Here there is also a gazebo with shaded dining/seating area and also plenty of room for the table tennis table. The other side of the house also has another large enclosed and secure patio ideal for younger children. It has Moorish arches, plenty of shade, seating areas and panoramic views.
The private drive to the property is shared by another private property which is located in the grounds of the farmhouse also with its own private pool and gardens.
