Traditional Spanish village house with terraces and an artists studio with stunning sea-views - on the Costa Tropical, Andalucia, Southern Spain.

For sale an unusual 2 bedroom terraced village house, situated in a tiny hamlet of 8 houses on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean sea, with sea and mountain views to the front and back

The construction size of the property itself is 70 metres2 (6 rooms). With outside space at the back of the house of 20 metres2.

The village is accessed down an unmade river bed (rambla), which is 5mins drive from the coast and the seaside villages of Casarones and Castillo de Baños (where there are beaches, bars, shops and a campsite with a swimming pool); and 10 minutes drive along the coast road to the fishing villages of Castell del Ferro and La Mamola (where there are many bars, restaurants, shops, pharmacies, banks, estate agents, doctors, schools, weekly street markets, water sports etc.).

The house is close to the A7/E15 motorway, exit 360, where you can access:
• Granada in 1 hour (the Alhambra, Sierra Nevada ski resort, Granada airport etc.),
• The white-washed villages of the Alpujarras including Orgiva in 40 minutes,
• Motril - the nearest large town –in 20 minutes,
• Malaga and its airport in 80 minutes,
• Almeria and its airport in 50 minutes .

The local area is safe, relaxed and friendly. In the summer it is very busy with mostly Spanish tourists. The Costa Tropical is the coastal area of Granada Province and has a warm micro-climate with an average of 320 days of sun a year. Usually winters are very short (2-3 months) with a bit of rain and wind (it’s rare the temperatures fall below 18C in the winter).

The house has mains water and electricity and we have Wimax internet/telephone, (although ‘normal’ telephone/broadband is available in the village). No mains gas, so the cooker runs on butane bottles (bought locally). No mains heating (not needed). The house has very thick traditional walls to keep out the heat in the summer and keep it warm in the winter. The house is built on a hill so you ‘ascend’ up stairs as you go through the house to the terrace at the back.

Council tax/rates (IBI) are 185€ per year. Very low outgoings, and the house has rental income or holiday home potential, or just come to live here permanently like we did 10 years ago! Freehold. Car parking nearby.

The house is currently used as follows:

Front door leads into Kitchen – 5 metres long, 2.7 metres wide (a possibility that washing machine and fridge may be included in the sale price). Several built-in cupboards. Views to the mountains, nearby villages and the sea. Large window and wooden front stable-door. High beamed sloping ceiling.

Leads into Lounge – 5 metres long, 2.5 metres wide (could be used as a dining room/lounge/flexible). With log burning stove, that is used for approximately 2/3 months a year. High beamed ceiling.

Steps up from Lounge into large Bathroom – 3 metres long, 2.7 metres wide, with ceramic bath and large tiled shower enclosure. Toilet, sink, large storage cupboard, electric water heater. High beamed ceiling with a window set high for light/air.

Small flight of steps up from Lounge (handrails both sides), leading to:

• Steps up to main Bedroom and
• Steps up to second reception room.

Bedroom - 5.3 metres long by 2.6 metres wide. A large room with 2 built-in wardrobe spaces, a large storage alcove, 2 small windows (mountain views). Wooden beams and traditional bamboo ceiling. The log-burning stove pipe runs through the bedroom, so providing gentle heat when it’s in use.

Second reception room – 2.7 metres long, 2.5 metres wide. Currently used as a library and music room. A very rustic room, with traditional stone (wonky) walls! Could also be used as a lounge or bedroom, a very relaxing space. Steps lead up from this room to the outside terrace, and there is a large glass-block area of the back wall that lets in a large amount of light. Area around the back-door has space for storage or seating. Back door is half-mosaic’d with a mural.

Main Terrace – 3.6 metres long, 2.4 metres wide. Tiled, and a generous size but not too onerous if you don’t want to manage a large garden space. Blue fencing down one side.

Outside the terrace is a further un-made terrace that has been gravelled and is planted with various plants including aloe vera, but which could be put to better use, measuring 3 metres long and 2.4 metres wide approx. Over-looking the sea with a stunning view to Castell de Ferro (village).

A small flight of steps leads up from the terrace to a further room – 3.4 metres long and 2.5 metres wide. This is currently used as a jewellery studio and a spare bedroom (with large sofa-bed), but is flexible in its use (teenagers bedroom!, office, sun-room, studio, storage etc.). 4 windows with sea and mountain views. This room has it’s own sink and toilet. Wooden stable-door.

There is a further small paved terrace (2.3 metres long, 1.4 metres wide) that is fenced with wooden poles, that can be used. And the roof of the studio room could also be fenced to be used as a further terrace if required (both of these areas are accessible via existing vertical metal steps).
