This is an unusual 2 bedroom terraced village house, situated in a tiny hamlet of 8 houses on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean sea, with sea and mountain views to the front and back. The Costa Tropical is the coastal area of Granada Province, Andalucia, and has a warm micro-climate with an average of 320 days of sun a year. Usually, winters are very short (2-3 months) and it’s rare the day-time temperatures fall below 18C .
The construction size of the property is 112 metres², with 77 metres2 living space (6 rooms). With outside terraces at the back of the house of 20 metres2
The village is accessed down an unmade river bed (rambla), which is 5mins drive from the coast and the seaside villages of Casarones and Castillo de Baños (where there are beaches, bars, a shop and a campsite with a swimming pool); and 10 minutes drive along the coast road to the fishing villages of Castell del Ferro and La Mamola (where there are many bars, restaurants, shops, pharmacies, banks, estate agents, doctors, schools, weekly street markets, water sports etc.).
The house is currently used as follows:
Front door leads into Kitchen– 5 metres long, 2.7 metres wide (washing machine, fridge and cooker may be included in the sale price). Currently, I also use this room as my home office. Several built-in cupboards. Views to the mountains, nearby villages and the sea. A large window and wooden front stable-door. High beamed sloping ceiling.
The kitchen leads into Lounge – 5 metres long, 2.6 metres wide (could be used as a dining room/lounge/flexible). With a cast iron wood burning stove (included in the sale price), that is used for approximately 2/3 months a year – we buy wood from our neighbour. High beamed ceiling.
Steps up from Lounge into large Bathroom – 3 metres long, 2.7 metres wide, with ceramic bath and large tiled shower enclosure. Toilet, sink, large storage cupboard, electric water heater. High beamed ceiling with a window set high for light/air.
A small flight of steps up from Lounge (handrails both sides), leading to:
Steps up to the main Bedroom and
Steps up to second reception room.
Main Bedroom – 5.3 metres long by 2.6 metres wide. A large room with 2 built-in wardrobe spaces, a large storage alcove, 2 small windows (mountain views). Wooden beams and a traditional bamboo ceiling. The log-burning stove pipe runs through the bedroom, so providing gentle heat when it’s in use.
Second Reception room – 3 metres long, 2.8 metres wide. Currently, used as a library and music room. A very rustic room, with traditional stone (wonky) walls and a small window! Could also be used as a lounge or bedroom, a very relaxing space. Steps lead up from this room to the outside terraces. There is a large glass-block section in the back wall that brings in a large amount of light to the room. The area around the back-door has space for storage or seating. The top half of the back-door is a mosaic of the sun and sea.
Main Tiled Terrace – 3.6 metres long, 2.4 metres wide. Tiled, and a generous size but not too onerous if you don’t want to manage a large garden space. Blue wooden fencing down one side. Facing the sea, there is low rush fencing and a small gate leading onto a further gravelled terrace. And lots of plants!
Outside the terrace is a further un-made terrace that has been gravelled and is planted with aloe vera, succulents, Yukka and a grapevine, but which could be fenced off and put to better use (vegetable garden, levelled up and extended into existing terrace etc). With a flat-top measuring 3 metres long and 2.4 metres wide approx (which then slopes down to the track/road behind the house).
There is a small flight of steps that leads up from the terrace to a Second Bedroom/Artists Studio – 4.3 metres long and 2.7 metres wide. This was used as a jewellery studio but is now used as a spare bedroom (with a double sofa-bed that could be included in the sale price), but it’s flexible in its use (guest bedroom, office, sun-room, studio, garden storage etc.?). It has 4 windows with sea and mountain views. This room has its own sink and toilet (with partition). Wooden stable lockable door.
