No expense has been spared on this property, the fixtures, fittings and ceramics are of outstanding quality. The house is situated at the very top of the village near the famous GR7 route for walkers and on the edge of the Natural Park.
Built over 3 floors, the main entrance is through a stunning, custom built solid wood door into a large reception hall. Once inside the house, the quality of the finish and the sense of space is obvious. On the ground floor it has a large garage with room for two cars and an enormous store room which has shelving for storage and houses the oil fired central heating system. There is also a utility room with fitted kitchen units, washing machine, dryer and sink etc. Hot water is supplied by a solar panel on the roof but can be heated by the boiler if necessary.
Also on the ground floor is a beautiful double bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower. This gorgeous room has a spectacular high ceiling with chestnut beams. The chestnut beams are a feature throughout the house. From the hall a wide staircase leads to the first floor.
On the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, both of which have french windows. From the bedroom at the front of the house, the windows lead out to a terrace with table and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining. The bedroom at the back of the house has access to a small courtyard with a beautiful overhanging jasmine bush and stone steps to the upper paved garden.
Also on this floor is a side entrance to the street, a large family bathroom and the stunning living/dining room and kitchen. The spacious living/dining room has a log burning open fireplace and is furnished to an exceptionally high standard. French windows open out onto the aforementioned terrace with table and chairs. There are spectacular views of the mountains from this room and terrace. There is a staircase from the dining area to the second floor.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a large aga style cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, with quality solid wooden cupboards and marble work surfaces. The kitchen opens out onto the aforementioned courtyard.
On the second floor is a landing with fitted cupboards and access to two more bedrooms, one of which is being used as an office at the moment. This bedroom has double doors leading to the paved garden.
The other bedroom, which is being used as the master bedroom, also has doors leading out onto a terrace with sofas and easy chairs. Again the views from this terrace are spectacular. Leading off the landing, there is another door out to the terrace and a large bathroom with a bath and walk-in shower.
The paved garden, mentioned above, is planted with roses, herbs and other shrubs. In the corner there is a pergola with table and chairs, which has grape vines growing over it. Another pleasant spot for al fresco dining.
This is a special property that needs to be viewed to appreciate it fully. It is situated at the top of the village of Mecina Bombaron above the Plaza Vieja (the old square). This beautiful village has bars, local supermarkets (one within walking distance of the house), a bank and a pharmacy.
