This wonderful old house is among the first original buildings of Capileira, and occupies perhaps one of the best positions, overlooking the Barranco Poqueira and the countryside, and with uninterrupted views across the Sierra Lújar to the Mediterranean and beyond.

The ground floor now has a large (9m long) kitchen / diner with a wood-burner and a range of fitted storage units in chestnut with marbletop work surfaces. The large picture window overlooks the stunning views. Also downstairs there is a study / office area with telephone point and internet connection, plus a shower room, cloakroom area and walk in storage space.

Upstairs there are two large double bedrooms, both with built-in storage. One of these has direct access to a small outside patio area. The other has a fireplace with chimney, and surely one of the most spectacular views in Spain. The third bedroom is a large single or a small double, and is currently used as a library come artist studio. There is an upstairs lounge with satellite T.V. and a second wood-burning stove. This cosy room has direct access through new double glazed French doors onto a large terrace, which is a great place to relax with a drink to enjoy the stunning views.

There are several ornamental terraces close to the house, planted with roses, irises, jasmine, wisteria and solanum. There is a private patio outside the dining room with flower beds and seating which overlooks the countryside and the wonderful views.

Below the house is a separate plot of agricultural land of approximately one third of an acre. An irrigation system has recently been installed to provide for the cultivation of fruit trees and vegetables.

Parking is close by, within a three minute walk.

The house enjoys peace and quiet and an unspoilt rural environment, yet is close to all the amenitites of the village.
