Description

This very stylish, charming former merchant’s house is located just off the “Plaza Despedia”, within the historic centre of Álora pueblo.

The property enjoys an imposing position slightly elevated from the plaza with private access by a couple of steps to a small, gated and railed front terrace.
Located on an urban plot of 176m2 it enjoys living accommodation of 182m2 distributed over two floors plus 22m2 outbuildings.

A handcrafted reproduction of antique double wooden doors offers direct access into a bright, spacious reception lounge which hosts a decorative, antique, feature fireplace.

When one enters through this principal door, one can see right through the central hallway and out through glazed doors to the rear of the property which offers a tantalizing, glimpse of the fabulous private Andalucian patio which this property enjoys.

To the front of the property, leading directly from the lounge , is a bright , elegant dining room which could ,alternatively, be exploited as a 4th bedroom.

To the rear of the property, with access by a gentle step up from the lounge, is a generous double bedroom which enjoys views out to the private Andalucian patio and also benefits from having an ensuite shower room.

Leading off from the previously mentioned central hallway , to the rear of the property is a breakfast room, open plan with a high quality , modern , fully fitted kitchen, equipped with luxury brand appliances including induction hob, oven, integrated microwave and dishwasher.

Those two adjoining rooms plus a convenient store cupboard located under the stairs to the upper floor complete the accommodation on the lower floor.

The elegant staircase leads to the upper floor which hosts a large area currently exploited as a 2nd sitting room. This room is particularly bright as it enjoys French windows and Juliette balcony. This room also allows access to 2 double bedrooms.

One of the bedrooms is of particularly generous proportions and the current owners have exploited part of the space for use as an office.

Both bedrooms host French windows and Juliette balconies.
A very attractive, large, luxury bathroom which hosts both a bath tub and a 180cm x 80cm shower stall completes the accommodation.

One cannot over stress the quality of the finish and style which the current owners have achieved in having this property professionally refurbished including the hand crafted carpentry, the double glazed windows, the bathrooms and kitchen and the tiling throughout which is very attractive and gives the illusion of wooden flooring.

In addition to the stylish and comfortable living accommodation, this property also enjoys generous private outdoor living space in the form of the aforementioned, Andalucian patio which offers various sunny and shady entertaining areas including an upper terrace which hosts an orange tree and another fruit tree called a “nispero” which offers the first fruits of Springtime in this part of Spain. Another very endearing feature of this property is an ancient “cave” accessed from the patio which is ripe for exploitation as a bodega!

In addition there is also a laundry room and further storage area accessed from the patio.

This property has historically been an important property within Álora pueblo and the current owners have spared no expense in transforming it from “a museum piece” into a very stylish, comfortable home without destroying its heritage.

The purchase of this property offers an opportunity to acquire an important property within the “Casco Historico” of Álora pueblo which is currently undergoing an important regeneration program with the aim of creating an area of significant cultural and tourism interest.

Offered for sale in immaculate “walk in” condition!
