COUNTRY HOUSE WITH FLAT FERTILE LAND AND MATURE BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
Country Property for sale in Pinos Puente
Ref: FINCA "THE LOVELY GARDEN"
Granada Houses Estate Agency presents this country house in Andalucia which sits on a completely flat plot of fertile land. Only a few minutes drive from the nearest town and 30 minutes to Granada City this is a well placed property for anyone who wants to be in the countryside but not feel isolated.
Access is by a short track and the plot has a double gated entrance and a driveway to the house. Next to the driveway is an ornamental garden with hedge and tree planting reminiscent of the gardens at the Generalife in the Alhambra Palace. The entire plot is fenced and has trees and hedging surrounds and an irrigation system.
From the front the house appears to be a bungalow but the lower floor is below ground level but with long windows to allow light to enter. This keeps the bedroom area a similar temperature all year around. There are three good sized bedrooms on this level with a distribution hall with storage cupboard. In one of the bedrooms is an entry to a large store room which has access to the driveway and this room could easily be converted into an ensuite bathroom.
The house was well constructed with an outer stone wall, air gap and then an inner wall plus there’s insulation in the ceilings. You enter into the open plan and L shaped sitting room/dining room. A large inset wood burning stove is specially designed so that ash can be collected from outside the house (keeping down dust and dirt) and it also has an external extractor fan for gases to be vented. A large double window overlooks the ornamental garden. From the sitting room you go through to a well appointed kitchen with a separate store room/pantry and there’s a family bathroom on this level. Stairs lead down to the bedroom level.
There is a large tiled terrace and behind the house is a swimming pool approx.
3.5m x 6m with a bathroom nearby and a store room for the batteries for the solar panel. A security system is already installed and there are traditional security bars over doors and windows.
The majority of the land is the other side of the pool and large cypress trees line a path to a rear exit to the property. A large storage shed with a wood shed is found here and this land is renowned for its fertility. Water for irrigation comes via a traditional irrigation channel (acequia). The land is enough for having your own allotment and chickens and there are already some trees planted: pistachio, olive, pomegranate, loquat, lemon, cherry and you could plant lots more.
This is an ideal small home (approx 80m2) and is perfect for anyone who wants to have productive land (3.600m2) but not too much land and still be close to a town. It could also be a very nice holiday home.
