Marvellous estate in a superb location This marvellous estate consists of a large farmhouse, 2 four bedroom bungalows and a one bedroom apartment. If you love tranquility, wonderful weather, the feeling of space around you and clean air to breath, then this could easily be your perfect, new home. Occupying an idyllic location between the azure blue Mediterranean Sea and a range of mountains, this beautiful estate is on a 18.000m² land (approximately four and a half acres). The property is approached from the road by a private driveway of approximately 100m. The Farmhouse: Built about 95 years ago and completely renovated over the last 18 years, the farmhouse offers a wealth of charm and Spanish character. The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. All windows have replacement, pine effect aluminium frames and are double glazed. They have fly screens and blinds. Summer Salon and Jacuzzi Room: Good size room with 5-seater Jacuzzi at one end. At the other end, there is space for a dining table and several chairs. In the centre, at present, is a lounge area. A charming, cool space, with netted arches to the front. In the rear wall, there are four antique, wrought iron window frames, perfectly framing a wonderful view over the open countryside, to the distant mountains. There are two further, detached, single storey villas, each of which has 4 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. They were built approximately 40 years ago. This is a 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, ground floor apartment attached to the side of the Farmhouse, with views over the orchard. Outside the front door to the apartment, at the side of the farmhouse, there is a large, covered area of 10.2 m x 6.7 m. It has a terrazzo floor and is ideal for shaded, outdoor dining. It gives directly into the orchard. Access to the drive is via a large sliding gate, so vehicles can be parked here if required. All the houses and the apartment access the orchard, which is gravelled with paths and includes orange trees, lemon trees, grapefruit and olive trees plus several established flowering trees. The wire fence surrounding two sides is covered with various flowering, climbing plants and it is a riot of colour for several months of the year. This is a wonderful oasis of exotic trees, shrubs and flowers. At the end of the swimming pool terrace, there is a semi-circular, raised flower bed, faced with volcanic rock. On the right, there are 3 steps down into the garden and on the left, there is a ramp, suitable for wheelchair users. The garden is laid to gravel for visual effect and easy maintenance, with a central, serpentine path, created from weathered, handmade, terracotta briquettes. Along the right hand side, there is a long, raised flower bed, topped with marble chippings, which houses a host of rose bushes and Mediterranean shrubs and flowers. There are several special trees in the garden, including palms, pomegranates, chorisia (which has beautiful, lily shaped flowers), parkinsonia, lagunaria, a huge stand of pampas grass and an ancient olive tree in the centre of a raised, circular roundabout, yuccas and jacaranda. The back fence, which has a wide rear gate, is screened by oleander trees, which produce a profusion of colourful flowers during the summer months. Towards the back of the garden is a gem of a summer house, which is open on three sides and is a perfect, shaded haven for hot, Summer days.
