For sale direct from the owners!

It is rare to find such an impressive 5 bedroom detached villa with such great access to the historic city of Granada – just a few minutes by car brings you to the bustling city which has been home to the Alhambra Palace for over a thousand years.

The views from the villa are stunning – a vista across the city of Granada and the Alhambra Palace would make any property special but add to this the Sierra Nevada and you can soon understand why the current owners fell in love with the property as soon as they arrived.

The property is located within an established urbanization but this villa was built by the original developer and he chose the best position to maximise the views.

The villa itself offers a huge amount of flexibility with the main living accommodation on the top floor but with a lower level, currently used for entertaining space but this could easily become a separate apartment for friends, family or even paying guests.

This area is a huge attraction for walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and visitors come throughout the year to enjoy the forests in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Needless to say, this is also a fantastic location if you enjoy skiing.

Here are our key features of the property…

♦ 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and great flexibility in terms of future use

♦ Main living level and a lower entertaining space or guest apartment

♦ Established location within a popular urbanization of permanently occupied homes

♦ Great access to Granada City, Alhambra Palace and the airport

♦ Huge forest, nature trails, picnic areas and unspoilt wildlife on your doorstep – literally 100m up the road

♦ Hotel and restaurant within a short stroll of the villa

♦ 10m x 5m swimming pool with feature lighting

♦ Pellet burners, central heating and all mains services

♦ Gated entrance, fully fenced land and large outside space to enjoy the best of the views

♦ Great access to the Costa Tropical (50mins) and Sierra Nevada skiing (40mins).

Layout and accommodation…

The villa is entered via a gated entrance to the gardens. The access is great, fully tarmac roads so no need for a 4×4 car and just 15mins from Granada.

There is a carport area for parking as well as plenty of space for guests.

A garage houses 1 car

The villa – you enter into the property via an entrance porch which brings you in to the large entrance hallway.

This main living level benefits from a large living area which has dual aspect windows and access onto a covered terrace. The fireplace is a feature with a pellet burner which fuels the central heating system on this level.

The kitchen is separate and well fitted with wall and base units and built in appliances.

This main level also includes 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms – the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is a further family bathroom serving the other bedrooms. It would be easy to adapt one or two of these rooms – either into a much larger bedroom or a snug/TV room for example.

Stairs rise up to a tower level which is currently used as a large office/study space – this area has great views and windows in various directions. This space is easily large enough to create a guest bedroom with a bed sofa for example. A terrace can be accessed from this level which benefits from 360 degree views across the surrounding countryside.

From the main living level, stairs lead down to the lower level which would make the perfect guest apartment for friends or family. There is independent access to this level from the outside which ensures privacy for guests.

The hallway has a door out to the Moorish covered terrace.

A large living room has a feature fireplace with pellet burner, dual aspect windows and a bar area with sink and space for fridge/freezer. This could easily become a kitchen area if a self-contained apartment was needed.

Doors lead to a good size double bedroom and bathroom.

On this level is a very large space currently used for storage but would lend itself to creating one or even two bedrooms or become further living space, entertaining space of hobby room.

Outside, there are many different terrace areas – some covered, some open and which can be enjoyed at different times of day or night as well as at different times during the year. Whether you want to soak up the sun, enjoy a nigh time view of the stars of enjoy an alfresco lunch in the shade, there is a space you can find.

The gardens are a delight – mature formal gardens, an orchard area and lawns. There are many different fruit and nut trees including walnut, apple, pear, nispero and olives. The pool is surrounded by a large sun terrace which has plenty of space for relaxing, sunbathing and even for the children to play.

The swimming pool is 10m x 5m and has feature lighting, great for enjoying at night and when entertaining.

A covered area on the sun terrace even ensures you can have a quick lunch next to the pool without having to leave the children unsupervised.

There is even a space for a tennis court measuring 28m x 14m which is fenced.

Summary – this property is large, offers a great deal of flexibility in terms of how it can be used in the future and is located in the perfect position for enjoying the hustle and bustle of Granada whilst escaping to a stunning area surrounded by beauty and with great views.

There are a number of architectural references to the Moorish history of Spain throughout the property including many of the archways and pathways/terraces which reflect some of the spaces seen at the Alhambra Palace just a few km away.

The current owners have thoroughly enjoyed their time at the property – they are now getting on in years and wish to pass the house on to new owners who can enjoy it as much as they have.

If you would like to arrange a visit, contact us and we can put you in contact with Colin and Lesley who will happily show you around their home.

Monachil and Granada

We have already mentioned that one of the things that sets this property apart from others is the location – just minutes from the historic city of Granada, this property is just a short walk from natural beauty which you will find hard to beat.

Just 100m up the road is a large forest, walking and cycling routes and the natural landscape which has made the Sierra Nevada so popular.

The hotel and restaurant just a few meters away offer tapas and menu del dia so you don’t even need the car if you fancy a drink or a quick lunch.

Yes, if you want skiing during the winter, the villa is just 40mins from the slopes but during the rest of the year, this area is popular with cyclists, painters, walkers, bird watchers and nature lovers in general.

You really do enjoy the best of both worlds – an established location within an urbanization, terrific views but the culture of Granada close by and beautiful countryside to explore – what more can you ask for!?
