Let’s walk you through the accommodation…

Reception rooms…

The entrance hallway provides a beautiful entry through original wrought ironwork double doors to the main reception room welcoming guests to the heart of the house.

The double doors just inside the hallway open onto a TV room featuring huge comfy sofas and warm bamboo flooring.

The original stairway has been opened up to form an open plan stairwell allowing light to flood the main reception room with sunlight.

The floors throughout the ground floor (apart from the TV room) are ceramic stone-effect tiles providing traditional and practical flooring for summer and winter alike.

Reception room 1

Light and airy, this room has a window and original huge wooden double doors onto the courtyard and is also flooded with light created by the open plan stairwell.

It features a built-in office area at one end of the room – ideal for a home working area, for reading, drawing or other relaxing activities!

The doors open onto the traditional Andalucian courtyard, paved in original stone, with plenty of room for the big rattan sofas and coffee tables to create a relaxing and private outdoor area.

The room also features two ceiling fans with lights which effectively keep this large open plan room cool in summer. In addition, the room contains a high quality green energy olive-pip/wood pellet burning stove with glass front that effectively heats this and adjoining rooms in winter, and also provides heat for the first floor rooms that lead off the galleried landing at the top of the staircase.

Reception room 2

Through original double doors from the entrance hall the living room features dark wood beams and original window shutters in the traditional Andalucian soft green colour that features on the woodwork throughout the house.

With 2 huge comfy sofas and a coffee table this room is designed for relaxing!

The floor is beautiful solid bamboo wood flooring and the ceiling features a traditional style ceiling mounted fan with light. The room has an air/conditioning unit fitted.

Dining room & kitchen

Through a small passageway under the stairs, the house opens out again into a charming dining room with original open fireplace, furnished with a traditional Moroccan mosaic dining table and wrought iron chairs sourced by the owners in Marrakech. A traditional ceiling fan and light blends with the wooden beams on the ceiling. The dining room leads directly through original double doors to the highly specified kitchen.

The large modern fitted kitchen contains stunning beech wood units with Silestone quartz worktops and beautiful glass mosaic tiled splashbacks.

The kitchen cleverly combines modern convenience with natural finishes that blend perfectly with the room’s original features including shuttered windows and panelled doors. It features Bosch appliances including washing machine, electric eye-level oven and microwave, gas hob with extractor fan and additionally, built in full height fridge freezer and dishwasher, and extensive cupboard space & worktops catering for all your cooking needs!

The kitchen is well lit and ventilated with a modern light and fan to the ceiling and two windows and a glass panelled door all opening onto the courtyard where meals can be enjoyed al fresco.

Bedrooms

The house has three bedrooms, two upstairs with a family bathroom, and one downstairs with an en suite shower room and adjacent wc and french doors to a private patio.

Currently, bedroom 3 is being used as a dressing room adjoining the upstairs bedroom and is spacious enough to house bunk beds or a single bed.

The upstairs bedrooms both lead off from the galleried landing that creates the open plan stairwell.

With a large window and glass panelled door to the two roof terraces the landing is as bright and sunny as the rest of this airy house, but also has wooden shutters on the window (as with all the windows in the house) to enable the sunlight to be kept to a minimum if desired on hot days and light nights.

Bedroom 1 – ground floor

A self-contained suite, this room has immediate access to the downstairs wc off the passageway to the room. Finished in bamboo flooring throughout, the room has a small entrance with steps up to the main part of the room and an extra quiet ceiling fan switched from each side of the bed for hot summer nights. Shelves & Moroccan wall-lights either side of the bed provide finishing touches.

Bright and airy, with a window and French doors onto the private patio, the room also has a cleverly placed double size en suite shower area behind the wall that the bed backs onto, tiled in turquoise glass mosaic tiles and featuring matching blue basin. The Hans Grohe Raindance Air shower-set is a contemporary ‘eco’ shower that incorporates air into the water providing a luxurious experience whilst saving on water usage.

The private patio with table & chairs provides the perfect spot for a private breakfast – shaded from both the pool area and the sun by a screen of miniature bamboo on the small wall that encloses the patio. Steps up from the patio lead directly to the private pool area.

Bedroom 2 – first floor

Bedroom 2 has glass panelled French doors with shutters leading to a small balcony with views of the stunning Sierra Nevada at the end of the winding village street. These also provide the perfect vantage point during the numerous village fiestas, as the house is on the route for celebratory processions held in the village!

The bedroom is bright and airy with high ceilings that reach up into the rafters with dark wood beams creating a traditional feel. The bedroom has an adjoining door to Bedroom 3 which is currently being used as a private dressing room with open wardrobe units containing hanging space, shelves and drawers along the length of two walls with a built-in ironing board and a drier for extra convenience.

The bedroom features an original bespoke Moroccan 4 poster wrought iron bed with beautiful light voile curtains on the bed and windows adding to the feeling of lightness and space. It has both an extra quiet ceiling fan with light switched from each side of the bed, and a remote controlled air/conditioning unit.

A white wood dressing table completes the bedroom and solid bamboo wood flooring continues through both rooms.

Bedroom 3 – currently a dressing room – first floor

This room, whilst connected to the main bedroom on this level also has a door from the first floor landing and can easily be used as a third bedroom. The connecting door between the two rooms also lends it to be used as a nursery or small child’s room.

The room is bright and airy with a high ceiling that reach up into the rafters with dark wood beams creating a traditional feel

Currently, this room has open wardrobe units containing hanging space, shelves and drawers along the length of two walls with a built-in ironing board and a drier.

Main bathroom

The unique luxury main bathroom uses locally sourced finishes to create a welcoming, cool and relaxing traditional feel with contemporary fittings and a high-end sensibility. The local travertine stone tiles feature throughout, sourced from quarries that lie within a few kilometres of the village!

Limestone mosaic lines the walk-in shower with an extra large Hans Grohe Raindance Air ceiling-mounted fixed showerhead and matching wall mounted/hand held shower head fitting provides a super-luxurious yet ‘green’ experience.

The specially designed built-in double basin unit provides space beneath for towels etc and features travertine stone bowls made for the current owners by a local artisan.

The room is finished with matching suspended WC and bidet for extra comfort.

Outdoor spaces

The outdoor space begins with the traditional Spanish courtyard containing flower beds and a fruit tree and original stone water feature. The courtyard also features hand painted traditional Andalucian tiles and original stone flagstones and contains large and comfy sofas, coffee tables, and ‘sail’ sunshade adding a beautifully relaxing extra ‘outdoor room’ to the house.

Steps up by the side of the house open onto the private pool area and further steps lead up to a spacious roof terrace and a further terrace that houses a locked metal storage shed.

The first terrace holds a rotary washing line for drying and both terraces provide glimpses of the stunning mountainous countryside.

Swimming pool

The luxurious private pool area is made possible by the double plot occupied by this property – and is extremely rare if not unique for a house in this village and many others in the area. The pool is a sizeable 3.4m x 5.8m and .9 to 1.4m deep with corner steps. The pool is tiled throughout with white mosaic tiles, with mother-of-pearl-effect blue glass mosaic tile borders.

Athough the pool is not heated, it is available for use year round and is often warm enough to use well into the winter.

The surrounding patio features beautiful pale grey cool-touch, non-slip engineered stone-effect tiles designed specifically for pool areas and has a solid wood and chrome pool shower. The lighting has been specially designed for maximum impact, with architectural uplighters creating 2 columns of light at each side of the pool with plants in between and the inside of the pool lit from the steps beneath the water. This ensures the pool area is a wonderfully relaxing place to enjoy both by day and during the evening, when moonlight swims can be wonderfully refreshing.

The area is walled throughout and the lane behind the property is at a much lower level than the pool area meaning guests cannot be overlooked by passers by.

Velez de Benaudalla, Sierra Nevada and the Costa Tropical

Velez de Benaudalla is located in the perfect position to enjoy everything that the Granada province offers visitors and residents alike. You really can consider skiing in the morning and enjoying a relaxing “sundowner” on the beach in the afternoon.

The village itself is charming and unspoiled by mass tourism – it is a typical “pueblo blanco” or white village and it is conveniently situated close to the Costa Tropical, a popular coastal stretch benefitting from some of the best weather in Spain.

The village is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and the beautiful Las Alpujarras region but is just 10mins drive from the coastal resorts and towns of Motril and Salobreña. Being just 55 kilometres from the historical and capital city of Granada, the opportunities for exploring this region are endless.

Velez de Benaudalla is a lively, working town that does not go to sleep outside of the tourist months – year round activity ensures it is well equipped with amenities of all kinds, including shops, banks, chemist, medical facilities and a good choice of bars and restaurants serving traditional Andlaucian cuisine.

The town has a long and colourful history dating back to the 16th Century when the Moors were in residence – a Moorish castle and many fascinating streets and architecture provide a view into the past of this attractive village. The Moors were well known for their love of water and there are many fountains located within the village.

The climate in this area is unique – the Costa Tropical takes its name from the sub-tropical climate that it enjoys and in the surrounding areas you will see Avocados and Mangoes growing – warm winters and long hot summers, the average temperature is around 20C and is perfect from growing all manner of fruits and vegetables.

This is a stunning property located in a charming village in an area that abounds with places to visit, things to do and views to enjoy. Whether this is as a permanent home for year-round use or a convenient holiday home for you to enjoy, we would strongly recommend a visit to see why we feel this is a one-off delight.
