Fresh, psychologically nurturing white and shades of chocolate are the favourites of the palette.
The property features a living room and cosy lounge with built-in bookcases, a lobby with access to guest cloakroom and laundry room, a bright open plan dining room and beautiful country style kitchen with a dual fuel range cooker, making the most of gas and electric to give your cooking a perfect balance, central island unit and built-in larder. Impressive Master Suite boasts an open fireplace, superb bathroom with bathtub and shower cubicle, French doors to a lovely ‘Juliet balcony’ perfect for enjoying serene views and Mediterranean sunsets. 2 Guest Suits comprise double bedrooms and full bathrooms en-suite.

Luxury property comes in a good condition and benefits from underfloor heating, built-in wardrobes, guest toilet, driveway for 5 cars, double garage, intercom system, garden irrigation system, 24-hour security, etc. It comes unfurnished and you can keep it charmingly rustic, with cultural preference for the Mediterranean historical traditional experience, or flawlessly combine classic features with super modern interiors and sophisticated design features. Taking inspiration from cultures around the world, you can go for exquisite ethnic chic of exotic lands. The sky is the limit!
Mediterranean lifestyle is all about outdoor spaces. Extensive sunny and covered terraces of 200 m² with al fresco dining, BBQ and chill-out areas invite to relax all year round and enjoy breath-taking views to idyllic countryside landscape, majestic mountain range and legendary La Concha. Manicured lawns surround the salt water swimming pool with solarium. Natural stones of retaining walls create a special atmosphere and add Mediterranean flare to the well-maintained gardens with a large variety of trimmed shrubs, mature palm and pine trees. Fruit gardens feature avocado, fig, orange, grapefruit, lemon, peach and olive trees. Energy efficient LED lighting make it all look magical at night. Large part of the fantastic plot of 5.015 m² is left to nature, but accessible by a walk which snakes through the wooded area.
Special property, prestigious location, excellent investment.
