Access is on a maintained dirt track. There are huge flat terraces recently cleared and waiting to be planted with fruit trees. Views at the back of the house look up to the mountain and from the front to sparse eucalyptus forest with open areas right down to the sea.

The house on two levels comprises an open hallway with marble flooring and marble stairway leading to a family bathroom and upwards to a mezzanine gallery and en-suite bedroom. The gallery is built in such a way as to enable a further bedroom to be created if desired. All along this level are patio doors onto a sun terrace overlooking the pool and superb views. Downstairs is a very spacious high spec fitted kitchen with Smeg appliances and open plan dining, airy open lounge with log burner featuring a wonderful chimney that continues to heat up through the gallery. Two more double bedrooms and a bathroom plus an annex with a bathroom, an area prepped for a kitchenette and a large lounge/diner or bedroom (currently used as a gym). There are several configurations available incorporating one or both of the downstairs bedrooms. The annex can be independent as it also has it’s own entrance.

Outside amongst huge modern terraces, lawns and newly landscaped gardens is a sparkling 5x10m pool with outdoor shower. The house is surrounded by plenty of land for gardening, veg growing or just leaving in it’s natural state. To the side are the agricultural terraces. This was once a farm, so the soil is fertile.

All the special energy efficient lighting has been imported from UK and Germany, the lounge air con / heating cover and driveway gates are bespoke. There is air con / heating throughout and solar heated water. Not only that but energy for the air conditioning / heating (and hot water when there is no sun) is supplied by a reverse cycle heat pump which reduces the consumption by approximately 50%. This and endless pure mountain water from a spring make this a very economic property to run.

There is a large garage at the back and ample parking space.

This is a super home giving complete privacy. It has possibilities as a B&B or a family home with market garden opportunities.
