Reformed in 1998 to a high specification, the main house comprises of 2 double ensuite bedrooms, dining hall, sitting room, kitchen, Butler’s pantry and laundry room. Guest cloakroom, staircase leading to the grand drawing room with apex ceiling (self supporting beams) open fireplace, south facing outside balcony approx 30m2 overlooking the Mediterranean and Rif mountain range of Morocco and a second bacony overlooking the main entrance and the village of Manilva with the Sierras beyond.

There is a boilerhouse with central heating / hot water boiler, solar power, water reservoir for 20,000 litres, three phase electricity supply and water pumps. There is also a private well (producing 1 litre per second of drinking water) and townhall water linked to the house, plus a septic tank.
The mature gardens are lush with an assortment of fruit and citrus trees as well as fig trees and grand palms. There is also a wooded area with a mixture of eucalyptus and casuarinas.
The exciting prospect is that the property has been granted planning permission for construction for a further 3,607m2. This is a very special place and due to it’s location would make an excellent retreat, care home or rehabilition centre in an area which has none of these.
Or you could even develop your own private Urbanización! Surrounded by nature with staggering views to the sea and the Riff mountains of Morocco, the property is quiet and secluded. There are literally endless possibilities with this property either for someone wanting to have a stunning home or create a thriving business and all within close distance of the local amenities of Duquesa and Sabinillas.
