Full Description

Stunning cortijo built with quality materials in traditional Alpujarran style, set in just under a hectare of irrigated land with stunning views. A truly superb property in a private position yet only minutes from the centre of Orgiva. The building has been designed to fit into its surroundings without dominating them and existing centuries old trees have been accommodated within the layout giving the building a really interesting form. There is a separate casita for guests and a large garage.
This wonderful cortijo has been built to exacting standards by a Swiss architect. Although it appears always to have been there it is in fact only eight years old. No expense has been spared either in the construction or in the finishing. All of the windows are of hardwoods, double glazed and protected by Majorcan style metal shutters. The principal bedroom has electrically operated shutters enabling the level of sunlight to be controlled without leaving the bed!. There is central heating to all rooms.
Designed to be a welcoming and comfortable home, the rooms are all very spacious and full of character with large windows offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. The accommodation currently comprises: spacious entrance hall with toilet, two large lounges each with open fireplaces and access to the gardens, dining room with doors opening to the gardens, quality fitted kitchen with island work surface, wlak-in pantry, two very large bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms (and one with two dressing rooms) and a laundry room.
Outside there is a huge covered porch area which serves both as lounge and dining room for much of the year.
Separate from the house is a casita comprising double bedroom and seating area with a kitchenette cleverly hidden inside a tall cupboard. There is also a vine covered porch. Adjoining the casita is a very large garage and it would be possible to expand the living accommodation to incorporate this space (subject to permissions).
The grounds are fresh and verdant due to the abundant water, which is supplied by an acequia and stored in a 300.000 litre tank underground. All of the property is irrigated either by traditional channels or by a drip system controlled by a timer. All 9.800 m2 of the land, which is arranged in wide terraces, is fenced and there is a private entrance with both vehicle and pedestrian gates. The land is highly productive with a wide variety of fruit trees such as oranges, lemons, figs, avocados, pomegranates, medlar, guava, almonds, grapes and olives.
ServicesMains electricity and water are connected. There is a water filter at the point of entry and another at the point of use. Broadband internet is also connected.
LocationThis property is situated in a very pretty rural district within walking distance to Orgiva, which is a charming agricultural town with all the necessary amenities including supermarkets, banks and a medical centre, as well as many bars and restaurants. Orgiva is located in a valley in the southern slopes of Sierra Nevada, and is considered the capital of the Western Alpujarras, a surprising and historical region between the highlands of Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean. It is about half an hour's drive to Pampaneira and Capileira, two of the highest mountain villages in all of Spain, and about 20 minutes away from the spa town of Lanjaron, famous for its healing waters. Granada is just a 50 minutes’ drive to the north, while the nearest beach is at Motril at an approximate driving distance of 35 minutes. Malaga and its international airport are approx. 90 minutes away.
