This stunningly spacious boutique suite hotel and home with fantastic guest reviews is located in rural Andalucía in the pretty Lecrin Valley, near Granada, ski slopes and beaches, with exceptional built-in opportunity for flexible use of space.
Created by its owners over a period of eight years, the property is a result of painstaking attention to detail encompassing everything required to design and construct a purpose built quality boutique country hotel and home, with all and every permission in place in order to run this as a rural top class ecological country residence, which opened to the public in August 2011.
The approach to the house is delightful through orange and lemon orchards passing through two small villages yet only 2.5 kms from the motorway running south from Granada to the Costa Tropical and its beaches. With a land area of 34.000m2 bordering on the National Park, it offers utter peace, tranquility and total privacy.
For this property the buyer will have to pay a 1% commission fee on top of the closing price.
There is so much more included in the sale than just the property; the limited company, fully functioning and licensed, its reputation and goodwill together with its registration on several marketing websites and its own website are included in the sale.
There is a professionally licensed kitchen equipped to cater for events of up to 150 and 200 people.
The house will be sold with, by negotiation, sufficient essential furniture and equipment to enable the smooth handover and seamless continuation and future growth of the business.
The house, which comfortably sleeps 12+, is designed so that all rooms and terraces have views south over the citrus and olive groves and villages of the Historic Lecrin Valley. It is built on two floors and each has ground level access.
The porched main entrance opens into a large entrance hall with its spectacular windows and views. From here is access to the spacious open plan sitting room, dining room and library, the licensed professional kitchen, the office and one large suite with bedroom and sitting areas and dressing room area (with wardrobes), en suite wet room and private terrace with views.
The professional kitchen has two large basement storage rooms (for catering equipment). There are two large terraces from this floor – again with fabulous views to the valley.
A central staircase leads to the lower floor comprising 3 individual spacious suites, each with a double bedroom, lounge-dining area, bathroom and private terrace overlooking the valley. Additionally on this floor there is a large laundry and storage room and a second kitchen-breakfast room (for guest use), a further large ground floor terraces, patio and gardens. Each suite is also wired and plumbed for its own kitchenette. There is the opportunity to easily create two further separate bedrooms within two of the existing suites.
The house is fully double glazed and centrally heated.
The immediate grounds consist of a large swimming pool with sunbathing areas, shower, garden and stunning views. A large wooden chalet - 'The Summer Kitchen' - containing a large wood-burning oven, BBQ and paella burners, gas hobs and electric oven - currently used as the Cookery School and for alfresco entertaining.
Landscaped formal gardens, vegetable gardens and a secure utility area. Over 30 terraces with irrigation system installed and planted with a large variety of fruit trees and many more terraces left uncultivated and covered with wild lavender, rosemary, thyme, fennel and rocket.
The house and grounds are operated on an ecofriendly basis. All the gardens are organic. The energy system that runs central heating, 6 fridges, 3 freezers, ovens, microwaves and much more is all alternative. It is made up of a mix of solar panels, biomass boilers and a backup generator.
There is drinking water piped from Murchas. All pool, shower and tap water is mountain water taken through an onsite chlorification system and then, once used, passed through a natural cleaning system and used for irrigation.
There is generous open air parking, more than sufficient for guests or for catering events, including weddings.
