Granada Houses Estate Agency is proud to offer you this unique opportunity to purchase a high quality modern chalet style house set in the rolling hills and olive groves of Andalucia. It’s almost impossible to find a countryside house, set in its own olive grove, that has such charm, style and is a low energy use property due to the thoughtful planning of the current owners.
When the house was built in 2007/8 a large part of the process was ensuring there was high quality insulation everywhere plus the latest in double glazing with thermal bridge breaks, anti-glare glass and window blinds. A heat source pump provides energy and there is underfloor heating as well as an attractive wood burning stove.
This property is in perfect condition and you can move in secure in the knowledge that you have a well maintained home. The house is built to earthquake resistant standards and is surrounded by retaining walls.
There are two entrances to the house. The first and most used is via a beautiful covered terrace and this leads straight into the large utility room. Off this room to the left is one of the bedrooms which is currently being used as an office. This room has views towards the Sierra Nevada and is a large room with lots of light.
To the right of the utility room is a sizeable fully equipped kitchen with stylish cabinets and granite worktops plus enough space for a dining table. The kitchen leads to the heart of this home which is a truly impressive, natural light-filled sitting room with a 7m high ceiling and superb views over the olive grove and to the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
A door off the sitting room leads to a passageway where you find the other two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers. The second entrance to the house is off this passageway too.
The high speed internet connection makes it a perfect place for working from home and the house is also ideal for anyone who wants to maintain the quality of their living space but also to have the option to farm an olive grove. There are 3.2 hectares of olive trees which can produce an income of between 5.000€ - 7.000€ per year. It’s also possible to have an agreement with a neighbour where they care for the trees.
The outside spaces are as perfectly maintained and the house. South facing rose and herb filled garden beds fill the space with colour and scent so your time outside will be as wonderful as any time spent inside the house. To the east is a large tiled terrace and the under-construction pool is on a level just below the house and with views over the groves and towards the Sierra Nevada.
One of the two garages is 40m2 and built in the same manner as the main house but without the insulation but with electricity and water connected so it could very easily be converted into a studio apartment. The other garage is 15m2 and made of wood over cement blocks.
This is a very well located property with the nearest town at only 5 minutes drive, a large village at 1.5km via a country track, only 10 minutes to the motorway which gives you links to Granada city (42 minutes) and to Malaga and the airport (1 hour 15 minutes).
The quality of this property cannot be overstated, it’s evident in every corner of the interior and exterior spaces. As low energy use properties are becoming ever more important this is an uncommon opportunity to purchase a beautiful ready-made eco home.
To really appreciate the detail and unique aspects of this house a viewing in person is highly recommended.
