THIS PRICE IS EQUIVALENT TO EURO 1350 PER NET M2 (BEFORE EXTRAS) AND IS VERY COMPETITIVE IN ALMERIA FOR A HOUSE OF THIS QUALITY OF BUILD, FINISH &; MATURITY OF FOLIAGE IN SETTING.
This property is a spacious, high ceiling, 4 Reception, 6 Bed, 4 Bath + 10 by 5M pool + full size Tennis Court rural “;Country House”;, situated 15 Km from the Mojacar Coast in Almeria Spain at 400 M above sea level. It is located about 0.5 Km from the traditional Spanish village of Bedar.
The concept behind the house, which was constructed in phases twenty years ago, has been to combine traditional Andalusian regional appearance, with Arabesque Mediterranean internal distribution and well insulated/ventilated modern construction in an abundantly shaded setting.
This achieves best use of the multi level site orientation, obtains sea, village &; hill views from the upper entry level used for the reception rooms and provides maximum shade&; sun protection for the lower level bedrooms grouped about a 'Patio Andaluz' or courtyard complete with a water fountain feature and flower bed. Both levels benefit from natural cross ventilation to take account of the sea breezes prevalent during the hot summer. The garden has areas of sun, shade and semi shade, suitable for all uses in all seasons.
Much use has been made in the finishes of materials in wood, stone &; Iron, traditional, to all styles of Mediterranean architecture. These include, wall facing of local ironstone, use of reclaimed antique doors &; window grills (reinforced where appropriate) with flooring of both antique &;modern hand cut tiles combined with roofs supported by timber taken from old railway sleepers or telephone poles.
The overall effect is of a constructed area that sits comfortably on the site; this is reinforced by the retention of four Olive and Algarroba trees, at least 50 years old, to improve shade at the top entry level and a lower entrance, tree, flowering shrub &; flower garden, planted twenty years ago, which adds to overall maturity and blends tastefully into a, largely untouched, Spanish rural background.
