We're at one of the jewels of the Mediterranean, on Costa Tropical to the East of Costa del Sol in southern Spain.
The property blends with the rugged terrain and contours are softened by tall, mature trees and colourful plants established along stairs and terraces all the way down to the edge of the sea., where you can enjoy snorkelling, diving or just leisurely swim in the refreshing waters.
This is a tranquil,residencial area with a cosmopolitan blend of owners that enjoy the privacy on offer. Malaga international Airport is about an hours´drive away as is the ski resort at Sierra Nevada. Granada is reached in less time as are the charming small coastal towns of Nerja and Salobrena, all well worth a visit.
The plot is according to the title deed 4159m2 (in reality 4 500m2) with a width of 60 metres down at sealevel.
The southfacing villa is approx 500m2 and seems to be clinging to the rock above the sea. It was originally built in 1982 and the present owner with help from the well known architect Don Jesus del Valle has rebuilt it almost completely using exclusive and specially selected materials that give an exquisite background to the mix of modern and antique furniture and art. Some beams, arches and doors go back as far as the XVI century. Altogether the result is a truly fantastic villa. If you are looking for something special, this is it!
At the imposing entrance there is covered parking for 2 cars and a lift that takes you down to all 4 levels, which you can also access by stairs. Below the tower room all in all you have five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two guest toilets, several comfortable lounges, a spacious modern kitchen, an office/library, a formal diningroom, and several storage rooms , On the level of the big swimming pool there is a bar and BBQ area, with one covered and one open dining area with magnificent views - as you have from all the house.
An open fireplace and a heating system (Daikin) make the house comfortable in the Winter months.
The sound of the waves and birds singing form the ideal background when enjoying this truly unique property.
Salobreña is a white town tumbling down the Gran Peñon (large rock) crowned by the ruined shell of a ruined Moorish castle surrounded by a sea of sugar cane fields and tropical fruits contrasting with the intense blue of the Mediterranean. The town centre is made up of several neighbourhoods built within the town walls during the Middle Ages; Albaycín, de la Loma, el Brocal and la Fuente are still maintained in their original Mediaeval layout of labyrinths, winding streets, passageways, arches and geranium covered windows.
