Full Description

This beautiful country finca is situated within a short distance of the Alpujarran town of Orgiva, within a glorious location in the area of Tijola, enjoying a southerly aspect and fine views over the sierras. The finca comprises; approx 10.300 square metres of land in total with an attractive 5 bedroom detached cortijo built to a very high standard in 2006, including an additional 2/3 bed letting casita which has been successfully let on a holiday basis for some years.

The present owners have lovingly created over time, stunning, formal mature gardens which form approx half of the total land area, and are a particular feature of the property, with meandering pathways, beds and borders well stocked with a wide array of pretty mediterranean and tropical plants as well as trees including ancient olives, citrus, delightful shaded seating areas with pergolas, arbours and many other interesting features. The keen gardener will also appreciate the plant nursery areas. Directly to the rear of the house is a pleasant lawned garden area with mature trees providing welcome shade on those warm summer days.
There is also a lovely sheltered pool area with 8 x 5 metre swimming pool, covered terrace running the full width and side of the house and an impressive roof top terrace from where fabulous views over the surrounding countryside to the nearby mountains can be enjoyed.
There are additional levels of land that are in a more natural state and require little in the way of regular maintenance. All of the land benefits from being irrigated via mountain 'acequia' water and there's a large 'alberca' or water storage tank to back this up.

Other features include; Main house has been built and finished to an excellent standard, spacious interior, impressive living room with access to rear undercover terrace, benefits from hardwood framed double glazed windows throughout, air conditioning, high quality fixtures and fittings, tiled floors, extensive integral shelving/storage space to most rooms, wood burning stoves and beamed ceilings.
