This charming 2-bedroom house is situated in the beautiful Guadiana valley where it enjoys uninterrupted views of the river and the Spanish countryside on the other side. The interior of the building has been tastefully designed and features built-in shelves, cupboards and wardrobes, wall lamps and ceiling fans. Its location at the edge of a small village is very quiet, yet it is just a 30-minute drive to the sea.
Entering the house through the front door you step into a hallway with built-in shelves. The door to the left leads into a bedroom with a built-in wooden wardrobe and a fixed ceiling fan. The window offers views of the front garden and the river. The door opposite leads into the front lounge, which again has built-in shelves, ceiling fan and a window with river views. Through a wide Moorish-style arch the lounge is linked with a second, very spacious lounge/dining area. Thanks to its high ceiling and a series of windows on either side, this room is light and airy, and it stays cool even at the height of summer. For the cooler months there are electric heaters in this room as well as in the front lounge and the two bedrooms.
At the far end of this room, through another arched doorway, is the kitchen, which has a high ceiling and a small goods lift that goes up to the roof terrace, so you don’t have to carry food and drinks up the stairs. To the left of the kitchen is the master bedroom. It too has fitted wardrobes, wall lamps and a ceiling fan. Windows to two sides offer views of the river, garden and the front terrace. To the right of the kitchen a small hallway leads to the bathroom and the back door, giving access to a small backyard and the stairs to the roof terrace. The terrace impresses with its size and the panoramic views.
A short walk from the house lies a plot of land with vines and olive trees that reaches all the way down to the river.
This is a property full of character in a fantastic location which is expected to sell quickly.
