Spacious 4 bedroom country house in Alora with numerous charming terraces and patios

A ‘Tardis’ in the countryside describes this property, what seems at first a compact country villa, just expands and expands revealing a range of living areas and numerous terraces, patios footpaths and garden corners.

The main house has two double bedrooms (the master has air conditioning), a family sized shower room, a well fitted kitchen and large living area with wood burner in a Spanish fire place and doors to a full width terrace fitted with retractable glass curtains which allow it to be used all year round for sheltered dining and entertaining.

To the side of the house there is another very large covered terrace with steps up to a further raised terrace ( with amazing 360 deg views across the valleys / mountains) and covered seating area with sun blind.

The covered terrace has views across the valley and to the El Chorro and El Torcal mountains beyond and provides ample seating, entertaining area and makes the most of the splendid views.

From here or from the gardens you can reach the pool area, with an outdoor kitchen/bar/BBQ with pretty covered sheltered seating area and a guest suite of air conditioned double bedroom, shower room and separate toilet with hand basin.

It also has a private shaded patio through the bedroom patio doors.

The rectangular pool is unusually large, 11m x 5m and has solar heating to extend the use-able season to provide near all year round potential use.

To the side of the main house is a self contained apartment, ideal as granny flat or guest apartment.

The apartment has a fitted kitchen, double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet, lounge and private elevated shaded terrace.

Further ancillary accommodation may be found adjacent in the grounds with a high quality wooden chalet arranged as studio style accommodation.

This property is suitable as a comfortable home or for use as rural accommodation, B&B and is especially suited for craft activity holidays owing to the flexibility of the accommodation.

The grounds extend to just over 1.23 acres (4981 sq/m) and are beautifully landscaped with numerous established species to provide several different areas for relaxation, including a raised pagoda with a hot tub.

There is also a productive olive grove and other fruit trees including figs, lemons, oranges, almonds, tangerines, nisperos, persimmons and apricots.

A very large double workshop (currently used for woodworking) could easily be converted into further accommodation or would be particularly suitable for use as a craft workshop having both power, water and divisible work space.

A carport and three further large lockable storage areas complete the complex.

The total build area is approx 260sqm.

The combined accommodation can provide 3 living areas, 5 bedrooms, 3 shower rooms and 3 kitchens.

Situated just 5 mins drive from the town the house has mains electricity, mains water, telephone, Internet and Satellite TV in two of the lounges and several of the principal rooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning.
