Granada Houses presents this traditional country house with spectacular views and large olive grove in Andalucia.
The property has easy access off a tarmac road and has a private track that leads to the plot. It is only a few kilometres from the nearest town with a larger town and motorway at around 10 minutes drive.
A section of land around the house and terrace is fenced so the property is safe for dogs. You enter this part via a double gate and there is a paved driveway with two car-ports, and a garden shed.
A jasmine covered arch leads to a terrace that overlooks the olive grove covered valley and mountains opposite. This is a shady spot and has a fixed pergola for protection against the summer heat. The house has metal security bars and traditional wood windows with shutters.
Entering the house and to the right is a good sized fully fitted kitchen with double sink, quality granite worktops, gas hob/oven and a large walk-in pantry. There is plenty of room here for a dining table.
Also on this level is the shower room for the two downstairs bedrooms, this is a fully tiled room and has a fitting for a washing machine.
Two bedrooms complete this level, one is a good sized single which would also make a nice office and the other at the end of the hall is a large double room with views over the terrace.
A central staircase has full height ceiling and at the distribution hall level you can go left or right. To the right is the main bedroom with fitted wardrobes, ceiling fan, air-conditioning and access to a private rear terrace. Off this bedroom is a large bathroom with shower, and this room is also fully tiled. A second door off the bathroom leads to the open plan sitting room which has wonderful views, a wood burning stove and access to the rear terrace.
If you wanted to run a small B&B or an Airbnb you could easily convert this top floor into an apartment. There’s an area currently filled with bookcases where you could install a compact kitchen to make an open-plan kitchen/sitting room.
The land is planted with mostly olives, around 400 trees, and they benefit from a government grant each year, the value of which depends on the olive harvest yield. There are some almond trees.
There is mains electricity as well as solar panels and two wells which provide good water supply according to the owner. All these things are fully licensed. The solar panels are connected directly to the mains supply and the company pays for any excess electricity produced.
An above ground heated pool sits just below the covered terrace and there’s also a petanque pitch, and a bench placed on a sunny spot to watch the natural world.
If you dream of a life as an olive farmer or just a life sipping wine, eating tapas amid amazing scenery this is the house for you.
Malaga airport is around an hour away, Granada city about 40 minutes.
