Full Description


A genuine country property in a stunning location offering uninterrupted country and mountain views, yet only 3km from the town of Velez Rubio.

This 146m² country villa really is an impressive property. One particularly striking aspect is the views. Every direction you look there are almond and olive groves, open countryside and dramatic mountain backdrops. It really is a beautiful location.

Double gates open in to a spacious gravelled parking area. This then flanks and leads to the enormous open terrace area all along this side of the house and surrounding the 9 x 4m swimming pool located in the sunniest part of the property. At one end of the terrace is a fly free dining area and in the centre of the terrace stone stairs lead down to a stepped garden area and orchard below. To the rear of the villa is the majority of the 22,921m² of land, comprising mainly open land and almond trees.

Entering the villa from this open terrace area, there is first a covered porch (also an excellent place to enjoy the views from) and the door then leads into an open space between the living and dining area. To the left is the sitting room with unique feature fireplace and to the right the dining room. This then continues into an enormous fully fitted kitchen (or kitchen/diner) with granite worktops and a door leads down two steps to an entrance hall, door out to the parking area and a utility/cloakroom with WC.

An archway from the living room opens in to a short corridor with doors to two very generous double guest bedrooms, a spacious full family bathroom and at the end of the corridor the master suite; an enormous double bedroom complete with an en-suite bathroom the size of many standard bedrooms!

The property also benefits from oil-fired central heating, fly screens throughout and the furniture can be included subject to negotiation.

Velez Rubio has all daily amenities including medical facilities, shops, local schools for children and also a free Spanish school for adults wishing to learn Spanish. The A92 is only 5 mins away from the property giving you easy access to four airports Murcia, Granada, Almeria and Alicante which are all approximately an hour an half away and beaches 50 mins by car.

Originally a fortified medieval hill-town, Velez Rubio was abandoned in the 15th Century and its population was moved eastwards, closer to fields and sources of water. Places of interest include the splendid baroque Church of La Encarnacion, the province’s biggest church which was built in the 18th Century and whose magnificent features include square towers, topped by octagonal belfries, on either side of a lavishly decorated doorway; the Royal Hospital (1765) which is now home to the Conservatory of Music, the Tourist Office, and a Museum displaying artefacts from prehistoric to Moorish times, including a section on ancient cave paintings.

The town is home to many cafés, bars and restaurants and on Saturdays, since 1804, a market spreads over the four main streets of the town. The two towns of Velez Rubio and Velez Blanco are separated by a 6km stretch of uneven land known as Ribera de los Molinos (Plain of the Mills) where 22 water-mills provide power for flour and fuelling mills.
