Full Description

A stunning “off grid” property, which has been professionally reformed from what was, a pre-historic cave. With the use of skilled excavation and structural engineering the cave was lovingly designed and developed by its current owners.

The property is situated close to the AP7 toll road linking the E15 Vera to Murcia and its convenient airport. The property is found just a 2 minute drive from the main asphalt arterial road and situated on a private track for local farms and the cortijo’s use.

Enter via its impressive walled and gated entrance, which guides you into this unique property with parking for up-to 8 cars, with a garage and a shaded pergola.

The garden hugs the cave house and a large professionally installed fly screened “outside” room/conservatory, guides you to the beautiful bespoke wooden entrance door. Enter into the large sitting/dining room area, the high ceiling gives you a sense of drama and space. It is beautifully dressed and offers areas for relaxation, reading, tv and dining. The room is large and has beautiful lighting throughout, with little areas highlighted to accentuate the room. A large wood-burning stove is centrally located for winter cozy nights, the temperature remains ambient all year in the cave houses, typically 18C.

Chambers have been retained around the house offering little nooks and areas of interest and intrigue. It has been well designed to make the most of the available light with the clever use of tunnel windows, making the property bright and airy throughout.

The farmhouse style kitchen is fully equipped and well fitted incorporating Silestone work surfaces, it has space enough for a dining area.

Leading from here is a large family bathroom with a walk in shower/wet room. Alongside is the first of the double bedrooms, with its tall elegant, original hardwood double doors. It is spacious and bright with its tunnel window offering excellent light into the room along with a high level window.

Beyond the sitting room is a hallway, beautifully lit leading you to two double bedrooms, each with their own en-suite wet room.

Next to the main cave is a smaller cave, offering rental income potential as it is self-contained. It incorporates a kitchen with dining area, a sitting room, a large DB bedroom and spacious bathroom. Income of approximately €2,500 pcm is possible, with the application of a tourist license. The small cave has its own patio and garden to the front and a huge rooftop terrace with panoramic views.

The garden opens out to the superbly designed pool area with its main features, a 10 x 5m swimming pool and “chill out” area. The spaces surrounding the pool are terraced and well developed and enhanced by mature trees and shrubs. There is an elegant water feature to complete the scene of peace and tranquility at this superbly designed cave house, an absolute gem of a property!
