The name I choose for this property means house of the setting sun because the sunset views are simply the best !
A beautiful country home set within 10000 square meter of fenced land commanding incredible views over the lake at Zahara De La Sierra and the soaring mountains of the Sierra de Grazalema.
The property was completed just 4 years ago by the current owners and its is all set up to make the very most of outdoor living and those stunning vistas .
Through the gates a paved driveway leads to the parking area with garage , cleverly tucked away on a level above the house and garden .
Tiled steps lead down to the main terraced area with a fantastic salt filtered swimming pool and lounging area landscaped with various built beds containing palms , oleander and other drought tolerant plants giving an oasis feeling.
Then we have the house which has a lovely shady and gated patio, providing ample dining and seating, so pleasant with the climbing wisteria and other plants giving a very calming effect .
Inside, the ground floor comprises of a semi open plan kitchen , with all appliances, rustic built units finished with solid wood custom made doors and siltstone counter tops, a beautiful arched opening leads the eye directly to an enormous picture windows giving a clear view of the breathtaking lake, mountain and countryside views , the spacious living and dining room has a wood burner fitted and air conditioning so all year round comfort is guaranteed here.
To the rear of the kitchen is a full family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and a separate shower , plus two light bright guest bedrooms , one with direct access to the patio .There is a laundry room and wine store on this level too .
The interior wooden staircase to the upper level is very special having been made to measure and beautifully decorated .
The upper floor is entirely given over to a master suite that is simply wonderful ! open and spacious , again with picture window and its own fabulous terrace , there’s aircon and a wood burner fitted here too, custom built floor to ceiling wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The space is large enough to have room for a lounging area and a work station too , not that you would get much work done as the views are a major reason for distraction .
From the upper terrace there are exterior stairs leading to the ground floor patios.
There are 2 more tiled patios , and a handy storage shed , outdoor wood store and a sink ,all things have been thought of here , the vegetable garden is accessed directly from the side patio , and a path leads up to the hay store behind the garage. the property has a license for 2 horses and a purpose built horse shelter,
The olive trees on the land are productive and the very friendly neighbor is willing to help with maintenance and harvesting , and has proved a god send to the current owners in terms of , his local knowledge, caretaking and advise.
The property could not be better provided for in terms of practical amenities , with mains electric , and water , solar hot water system and internet connection .Although the possibility to go off grid does exist too.
The , location and access are great .The village of El Gastor is just minutes away for your day to day needs, Olvera , Algodonales and Zahara are within 20 mins drive , fabulous Ronda about 30 mins away .
This is a dream of place that has been created with much thought and creativity where anyone looking for a slice of Andalucian countryside heaven would be happy to live, sit back take in those views and of course the famous puesta del sol !
