Property Description (Main House)

This exceptional country house has its own separate cottage in its grounds. Both house and cottage have swimming pools and their own pool house.

The location is convenient too – only 7 minutes’ drive, or 20 minutes’ walk, from Orgiva town.

Both properties have independent access by electric gates. The cottage would be ideal as a holiday rental or could be used as a service cottage to the main house by the owners if they wish to travel.

The grounds and gardens of both the main house and cottage have been maintained to the highest level. The total land area of this property comes to approximately 8,728 square metres. The land to the garden has official water rights from the Rubite pozo (water well) for the orchard and vegetable area.

The grounds of the property are on a number of levels and can be accessed through the large main gate at the top level. This leads in to a large gravel drive and parking area with a double car port and wood store. Here there are mature plants and garden areas with seating overlooking the next level down.

Access to the main house and gardens is by a short, pretty wisteria-planted, ramped walkway taking you down to the next level. On this level you find the main house which features a covered dining terrace for 6/8 people. This outside dining area is surrounded by a variety of mature trees and has the advantage of looking out to the picturesque Orgiva landscape.

Looking out from the main house, there is a swimming pool, about 8 x 5 metres, which is an elegant curved shape to complement the surrounding garden and other water features. A fountain and fish pool enhances the calm. The grounds are planted with impressive palm trees and mature shrubs.

Moving inside, the main house is on two different levels. It opens onto the bright and expansive open-plan room that comprises the living room, stepping down to the dining room (including drinks area) and another step down to the kitchen. The sunny kitchen has views to the top dining terrace, showing off its plants and flowers and the mountains beyond, through a large feature window. There is a tiled, walk-in larder/store off the living room. The living room has views to the plant-filled gardens, fountain and pool.

Passing through the kitchen on this level, there is a landing area with a pantry, stairs leading up to the upper roof terrace, four steps leading down to the larger lower landing/hallway and straight through to a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom and salon. The salon leads out to a patio through French doors.

On this top terrace is a dining table to seat 6/8. There is a built-in barbecue and food preparation area. From this terrace are amazing views of the Sierra de Lujar and Orgiva valley. Night-time dining here, under the stars on a summer’s evening, is real Spanish country living.

From this same landing, four steps down connect to a spacious hallway in the lower level of the main house. This hallway leads to the two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and another room which is currently an office. This office could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom. There are two storage cupboards, one for vacuums etc and the other houses the washing machine. A doorway leads to the outside.

There are mounted electric oil-filled radiators in all rooms, bedrooms and office.

From this level, exiting left via the door to the exterior and passing through an ornamental arch, gives good access to the gardens.


This country house, with its rental potential is a highly attractive property. Its closeness to Orgiva town is a top feature. The location is easily within reach of the Sierra Nevada ski resort, Granada city and the Costa Tropical. The amazing views of the countryside are absolutely stunning.

The owner is downsizing so will be able to leave any furniture in the house if required (not included in the sale price).

Property Description (Cottage)

The cottage on this property has 2 bedrooms and its own private swimming pool.

It has independent access from the main house and there is room for car parking.

The layout and décor of the cottage is bright and appealing. The lounge has a traditional look with painted cream stone walls and wooden beams. Double French doors look out to the swimming pool and the beautiful views beyond.

The lounge leads through to the kitchen and in turn the bathroom, which is clean and tidy and has a walk-in shower. There is a laundry room next door to the bathroom and then from here on to the bedrooms.

Both bedrooms are doubles and are decorated simply and attractively. A special touch is that both bedrooms have doors to a vine-covered dining patio.

The lovely swimming pool is a good size (5 x 4 metres) and has a smart terrace surround with room enough for sun loungers. This area has colourful Hibiscus, Plumbago and Bougainvillea vines, the latter providing colourful shade to the front entrance.

The cottage had its own garden planted with a variety of trees and flowers. Here you’ll find oranges and lemons as well as plums and medlars. A convenient storage shed is an added bonus.
