This showstopping Andalusian property is a rare architectural jewel, with a history that can be traced back to 1492 . Forming part of a charming village in the Granada countryside, just an hour’s drive from the city of Granada and 30 minutes from the sea, it’s perfectly positioned for the region’s wide array of attractions, including the Alhambra, the tropical coast, the cities of Nerja and Málaga and more.
Perfect for an extended family, it would also make a superb investment and/or business opportunity. What’s more, with its own private chapel and beautiful Moorish-style gardens, we can easily envisage it as a unique venue for weddings, conferences, workshops and open-air events. Indeed, the present owners have obtained a licence for tourist use.
The property and grounds encompass the Palacete (the main mansion, with 12 bedrooms), stunning ornamental gardens, private chapel, a tennis court, extensive terracing, an open-air bar, a heated 10-metre swimming pool, a generously proportioned mill house, recently converted into an elegant reception space with a capacity of 100 (ideal for weddings and events), a gatehouse providing guest accommodation (five bedrooms, five bathrooms), helipad and parking for up to 25 cars.
Breathtaking views over the valley and hillside extend in every direction.
The mansion itself is arranged over two levels.
On the ground floor, we find a spacious entrance hall featuring 300-year-old tiles, handcrafted in Seville; a splendid sitting room with a central column, vaulted ceiling and antique fireplace; a library; a cloakroom; a living room with Wi-Fi connection; an exhibition room; a games room with billiard table; a wood-panelled dining room seating up to 24 and an internal courtyard. Also on this level is a spacious, country-style kitchen with two stoves, ample refrigerator and freezer storage, an industrial dishwasher, fitted crockery cabinet and utility area.
The upper floor contains the twelve bedrooms, each offering a blissful combination of generous space, luxurious surroundings and ravishing vistas. All bedrooms are either doubles or suites, the latter featuring a private sitting room, terrace, and bathroom and affording superior views.
Outdoors, the centre piece is the Moorish-style ornamental garden: a true oasis of tranquillity for strolling, reading and soaking up the sun, surrounded by old-growth palm and cypress trees and a variety of beautiful exotic plants.
The chapel, built in around 1814, has been fully restored to preserve its original sculptures, flooring and baptismal fonts. The building is dedicated to the Virgin of Lourdes, whom we find presiding over an alter over two centuries old. The high, arched ceiling and tall windows keep this space infused with a soft, delicate light, creating the perfect atmosphere for an intimate wedding ceremony.
One of the most unique and memorable in our collection, this property is a must-see.
