As one enters through the central gates under the west tower, the entrance to the main residence which encompasses two floors, lies straight ahead across the central courtyard.
Though built in a traditional style, the house is light, airy and open.
The Main Residence
Ahead there are double doors onto the east terrace
which is bathed in morning sunshine and provides shade from the afternoon heat. There is an outside fireplace/oven and BBQ area.
The Entrance Lobby
The East Terrace
The entrance hall leads through archways to the lounge on the right and the dining room on the left.
The ceilings are beamed throughout the hacienda.
The lounge is large and square with a substantial stone fireplace, ideal for log fires in winter.
Double patio doors open onto the east terrace at the front of the building and into the pergola overlooking the valley at the side of the hacienda.
The main residence has ceramic floor tiles and under floor heating.
The Dining Room
The dining room also opens onto the east terrace and an individually designed staircase leads to the first floor. The dining room, which comfortably seats ten, leads into the large kitchen through another archway.
The kitchen opens into the walled garden which has been used as a herb garden.
From the kitchen the food preparation/utility room houses a large fridge and freezer, as well as a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Most of the laundry work, however, is carried out in the boiler room, where there is an additional washing machine and ironing facilities.
There is also an under-counter fridge in the main kitchen.
The view from the kitchen looks out on to the Sierra Nevada.
The walled garden
Upstairs, there is the principal bedroom, bathroom and dressing room. Double doors open onto the bell tower and terrace overlooking the valley. A trompe d’oeil of the valley through an archway creates a sense of space and openness.
The Principal Bedroom
A doorway from the bedroom leads into the bathroom and on the left the dressing room. Double doors opposite open onto a Juliet balcony overlooking the walled garden
