Plot: 1,070 m2
A truly charming villa with good distribution which would make a fabulous family home. The villa is solidly built and generally in good condition, for some it may require a little cosmetic attention. With a modest investment to update some areas this could be a spectacular house in a great location.
One of three villas built in 1979 by two architects and a builder, this one takes pride of place at the highest point of the urbanisation with splendid views towards the mountains and a partial sea view. Set just a few minutes easy access from the N340 and Benalmadena pueblo it’s in the middle of everything but with a feeling of serenity the moment you step inside the large gated entrance. Definitely in prime position on the urbanisation.
The villa benefitted from new electrics in 2010, new plumbing in 2009 and a new pool pump in 2015. All the floors are marble. The 60cm cavity walls keep it cool in Summer and warm in Winter.
The entrance hall has two sets of high quality wood and glass doors. One set lead to a cosy wood study with wood panel detailing. Through the others you enter the hub of the house, the wonderful character full open plan lounge and dining room with its 3.0m high ceilings, impressive stone fireplace and further wood panelling. Easily big enough for two distinct seating areas, there are doors leading to a light filled summer room which can also connect to the dining area. Some unique hand-forged decorative iron work frames the doors and windows to the back.
Off the lounge is a good sized galley kitchen with ample storage, granite worktops, a breakfast area and large larder type store. A side door also leads to the front entrance porch for easy shopping access.
Another hallway leads to the bedrooms and a covered terrace which overlooks the pool area and catches the morning sun coming over the mountain view.
The master bedroom is large with a small dressing room and ensuite bathroom with WC bidet, twin sinks and shower. There are three further bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and the other two sharing a family size bathroom.
Outside there is a covered parking area for four cars and further parking area. Grassed areas to the front and back with a built-in BBQ area with shaded pergola are totally private. Sweeping twin staircases lead down to a generous terraced area with a large kidney shaped pool of approximately 80m2. There is also built-in bench seating and two large storage cupboards. The terraces and most rooms of the house have lovely views over the surrounding area and mountains. Below the house is a cavernous room used for general and wine storage.
