Key Information about the Hacienda
A property such as this is a rare find in Andalucia and a unique opportunity for many different uses to include tourism. Below are the main reasons this property is so special:
♦ The hacienda was built from a full building project, working closely with the town hall. The entire process took from 2003 to 2008 to complete.
♦ The property has a Licence of First Occupation (Licencia de Primera Occupacion).
♦ The land has a full topographical survey, used to ensure the accurate boundary of the large 45,425M2 of land (finca) for registration in the land registry.
♦ The property is not an old crumbling Hacienda – this is a superb ‘new build,’ constructed to the highest standard and includes the latest modern conveniences, yet with the all the character, charm and styling expected in an Andalucian Hacienda.
♦ The modern conveniences include: Underfloor heating and heating to radiators (oil fired). Fast Broadband Internet throughout the entire property via line-of-sight to masts. Streaming of International TV via the Internet is easy and reliable. A satellite dish is in place with UK Sky currently and the dish can be re-aligned for use to view the many Northern European country’s TV channels. A phone is included within the Broadband contract. Three phase electricity is connected so an industrial kitchen and more could easily be installed if desired. Double glazing is fitted throughout. Two beautifully fitted kitchens are installed in keeping with the style of the Hacienda. There is a main lounge and also a second guest lounge. The property has cavity wall and roof insulation. There are impressive wrought iron gates leading into the central courtyard and grand Andalucian style wooden doors with iron studs that enter the great hall. The internal wall tiling throughout the property is Moorish in style, attractive and high quality. Plus, the floor tiling throughout is the same terracotta colour ceramic tiling which flows beautifully through the home. An air-conditioning system is ready for connection should a buyer want cooling throughout. A system for solar hot water is also in place should a buyer wish to add solar panels.
♦ The property was granted a licence to be built on the most stunning plateau overlooking the Lecrin Valley, as long as the building contributed to the area. The licence was therefore granted on a shared residential and tourism related basis.
♦ The tourism rate per night for the guest bedrooms en-suite is currently registered at €110 per night. Of course, if a small and exclusive boutique hotel with destination restaurant wished to be set up, this rate can be substantially increased.
♦ The impressive central courtyard takes influence from the Alhambra Palace in Granada with a star shaped water feature and citrus trees that give off the most wonderful scent in Spring. There is also a cloak room with w.c. located off the central courtyard. The towers either end of the courtyard are superb vantage points from which to admire the spectacle of the courtyard below of the far reaching panoramic views beyond!
♦ Land & gardens cover a total area of 45,425M2. Surrounding the property are mostly formal gardens. The rest of the land is planted with a mixture of olive, almond, fruit and citrus trees. None of the land is treated with chemicals, to create an organic environment for the current owners.
♦ The Hacienda is available for sale to include all contents (minus some treasured personal items). This ensures the buyer a turn-key property, ready to enjoy from day one. Also a tourism business is able to run almost immediately.
♦ Locality of the Hacienda is on a plateau overlooking the impressive Lecrin Valley taking in mountains (snow capped in winter) and all the pueblos blancos (white villages) dotted around the valley.
