The Villa has been tastefully extended to provide a Granny Annex which hosts the third bedroom and bathroom and Kitchen 2.
The three bedrooms each enjoy having their own sea and mountain views, bathroom and separate terrace thereby providing added privacy for mixed generation families or frequent visitors.
There is significant scope to add 2 further bedrooms and bathrooms on the existing footprint subject to planning application which in this case should be easy.
THE LAYOUT OF THE VILLA IS AS FOLLOWS: -
The front door and entrance vestibule (1.5 m2) lead into a large, bright open plan lounge (6.27 x 3.53 m) with real feature Stone Fireplace having gas-log insert and a Hot/Cold Airco unit and double sliding glass doors to the main terrace and pool. There is a cupboard off the living room which houses the washing machine and some useful storage shelves.
The dining room (3.9 x 3.4) is off to one side through a typical Spanish arch and has a serving hatchway to the American style kitchen ( 3.14 x 2.09 m), with electric ceramic hob and electric oven. A double stainless sink unit, stone worktops, fitted fridge-freezer and ample storage cupboard space completes the kitchen.
To the other side of the living room is the first double bedroom (bedroom 1) (3.06 x 3.6 m) which has a fitted wardrobe and double glass doors to the main terrace. This room is pre-installed for aircon.
Next door to this bedroom is bathroom 1(3.00 x 1.45 m) which is fitted with enclosed shower, WC. Hand washbasin with mirror and some marble shelves for toiletries, towels, etc. The double-actioned window looks out onto the garden. The bathroom also doubles up for daytime use from the living area.
A feature circular staircase leads up to the first floor.
The master bedroom (bedroom 2) (3.33 x 3.14 m) has fitted wardrobes and double glass doors which lead out onto a semi-circular private terrace (15 m2) with quite remarkable and beautiful panoramic views. Airco is also pre-installed here but not fitted.
The bathroom (bathroom 2) (5 m2) has an enclosed shower unit, douche, WC and hand washbasin with mirror. The double actioned window looks down onto the garden below.
This has an area of circa 35 m2 in addition to the 8m x 4m kidney shaped pool with lights. The pool is maintained by the owners and routinely cleaned and checked for chemical balances. The owners can also recommend a most trusted, skilled and reliable Pool man who will carry out this work for around €800 a year including chemicals - a great deal! This includes the pool being cleaned around 70 times a year.
Lower Ground Floor:
A pleasant stroll from the front door along a path through the kitchen garden and its fig, mango, pomegranate, orange, lemon and mandarin trees leads to the apartment and its 50m2 terrace. The apartment is suitable for renting to bring in additional income or used as a Granny Flat or for adult teenagers, or visitors.
The door opens into a large bed-sitting room (bedroom 3) (3.6 x 3.6 m) currently housing twin beds, fitted wardrobe, fold down table and two chairs.
A small but functional kitchen (kitchen 2) (5.26 m2) fitted with Gas hob, electric oven, fitted fridge, work tops and storage cupboards makes, the apartment self-sufficient or can be used as a garden kitchen.
A very large luxurious bathroom (bathroom 3) (3.75 x 2.5 m) houses a corner bath with shower attachment, WC and hand washbasin.
At the end of this bathroom are 3 steps leading through a door into a two room storage area which the current owners use as a playroom and library (7.1 x 3.2 m) with masses of storage space (5.5 x 3.25 m).
Both these rooms are plastered, painted and with tiled floors, wall lighting and power sockets.
This area is not classed as habitational and cannot be sold or rented out as such but any owner can use it in any manner himself as we do. This area can be accessed via a different door outside of the apartment.
The large terrace is ideal for BBQ’s and parties because of its space and also a play area for some age-groups. (The area is over 50 m2).
There is a large detached garage (6.6 x 4.03 m internal) to the side of the villa adjoining the road which is fitted out with electrical lights, power and a remote-controlled up and over door. This room also has a great deal of storage space which the current owners have managed to half fill!
On the opposite side of the villa to the apartment there is a pump room (12.46 m2) with the controls for running the private pool and storing cleaning materials and equipment. The current owners have built a small but most convenient workshop area with a long sturdy workbench to store tools and carry out maintenance/repair work for the villa or other things whenever needed.
The villa is surrounded by garden on all sides. Some of it is flat but most is sloping. There are no grassed areas although it is possible to introduce some.
There are 4 independent watering systems with timers which the owners have not used for some time so some updating is needed but this would not be a major expense.
The owners have planted a great number of ornamental and fruit bearing trees such as: -
Jacaranda, Eucalyptus, Yellow-Mimosa, Pine, Fir, Palms, Yucca, Mandarin, Orange, Lemon, Fig, Kiwi, Mangos, Pomegranate, Grapes.
It is also possible to grow bananas in this garden.
The villa has recues (ornate wrought iron metal bars) on all windows and doors except the apartment and is very secure. There is a lockable metal gate between the garage and the house wall and the entrance vestibule has a similar metal gate followed by a thick and solid wooden door.
The pool terrace has a lockable solid-wood separate access door which can be used for any pool maintenance people and for added privacy. The Ground floor bedroom and living room doors to the terrace have lockable metal gates. The bedroom also has a Persian as (roll down shutter).
There is an alarm installed with 24/7 remote monitoring and the service from this company is excellent. Monthly service charge is around €33.There are also some security lights which operated on infra-red sensors at night-time.
The villa is on an upmarket urbanisation with Neighbourhood Watch and so security is pretty good all round. The current owners sleep very soundly in their bed at night so apart from the usual concerns of today regardless of where you live in this world - this villa is very secure.
The villa is supplied with a Wi-Max symmetrical Broadband facility of 10Mbs upload and download received by a small aerial. This also incorporates a landline telephone operated over the internet and the owner is also able to use SKYPE for those extra-low-cost international calls through the computer.
There is a 2.4 metre satellite dish in the garden which still receives most UK channels despite major attempts and successes in starving many British Expats from receiving UK TV. Local companies do offer a variety of ways in which you can choose to receive your favourite channels wherever you come from - quite possibly without the need of the 2.4 metre dish!
