This country estate in tropical colonial style is located at a leisurely drive of 10 min. from Huercal-Overa town and at just 25 min. drive from the beaches. The estate sprawls across 1,7Ha and is located in the countryside of Overa. This unique property consists of an olive grove, a main house (290m2) and a guest house (112m2) separated by an inner courtyard, a private pool with sauna, garage, patios, carefully landscaped gardens and an orchard.
The sellers’ travels and eye for detailed design are the reasons why this is an exquisite and exceptional property. The house has been renovated to adapt it to a contemporary lifestyle by redistributing all the spaces and opening them up to each other.
The property was then finished with the most exquisite materials. All original windows and doors were either restored or replaced by exact copies of the originals. Walls were torn down and some were replaced by genuine satin wooden columns from India. All the carpentry was tailor-made in India and brought to this home. The terrace and garden’s balustrades are made out of natural stone from Kashmir. The roof tiles of the pool maintenance room and the sauna are also handmade.
The entrance door is definitely another main feature. It opens up to a spacious hall in between the dining room and the family room. The house features light and airy colors, high ceilings, traditional shutters and ceiling fans that give it a tropical British colonial look that seems perfectly in place with the surrounding countryside. This is a sun-filled home, full of character and finds from across the world. The L-shaped family room has a large fireplace, office space, bar and music corner and large windows to enjoy the garden views.
There is a spacious dining room with room to seat at least 8 guests that leads to a spectacular gourmet kitchen with a large center island.
On the first floor there is a bathroom with large walk in shower and the master bedroom suite with dressing room, a private terrace and large windows that overlook the gardens, pool area, the olive grove and the mountains.
Next to the main house is a laundry room and utility room, a guest bedroom with bathroom. On the right is the guest house that is currently used as an extension to the main house, but that could be an independent house. The ground floor of the guest house has a private office with entertainment lounge and reading room. Via an outside stone staircase you reach the first floor where you have a bathroom with bathtub and a double bedroom. Although at this moment there are ‘only’ three bedrooms, if the future owner of this property would like more rooms, the house can effortlessly be converted into a five bedroom home. The large stone porch, finished in wood with stained glass windows enjoys a clear view of the gardens and provides enough shade in summer. The house is equipped with central heating for those couple of months a year that it gets a bit cooler in this warm region.
Furthermore there is a garage, a sauna room, a storage room, a private pool with sun terrace and an olive grove of around 1400 olive trees.
This is an exceptional home, meticulously designed to just enjoy life, inside as well as outside the house.
