Courtyard, Water Features and Loggia.
Imagine an inner courtyard with loggia and 12m x 3 m pool as the centre piece. Frame this area with a large, well constructed 2 bed, 2 bath property on 2 floors with additional cloak room near the kitchen and laundry area and a minstrel’s gallery / mezzanine above the sitting room where you can rest during the day or use it as an office and get some work done. There is a WIFI connection here where the coverage is reasonable on the whole. The open plan living quarters on the ground floor benefits from the high, fully beamed ceilings. This home is warm in winter due to the ample wooden beams and stanchions coupled with the efficient wood burner stove. It is cool in summer, too. French Windows and the wonderful wooden beams and pillars and staircase are wonderful thermo-regulators. Although, there are also air-conditioning units in the bedrooms for those days when you just need to protect from the outside.
Low Maintenance Quality Design
This 4 bed property is located away from the main ‘high street’ of Marchenilla. The plot size is 1,022 m2 and built area is 344 m2. The outside space is well designed and easy to maintain with mature fruit trees and shrubbery, a grassed area and the rest, either paved or gravelled. Being set further back, there is a feeling of peace and quiet and, importantly, there is a respectful distance between this detached country property and its nearest neighbour. Marchenilla forms part of the borough of Jimena de la Frontera and the village with all of its amenities is just ten minutes away. Plus, there is a great-value restaurant and bar on the corner as you enter into the hamlet. No need to drive it’s only two minutes away. For only 495,000€ it’s worth making an appointment to view.
