The Main House
An unpaved driveway of about 150m leads you to the parking area in front of both houses. A few steps lead to the front door of the main house, which has a constructed size of 184.4 square meters.
On the ground floor is the main bedroom with a large, private bathroom and walk-in closet. Also on the ground floor are two generous double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a full bathroom.
The stairs take you into the living room on the first floor. Here you have a spacious open plan room with a terrace of 30 m² from where you have a beautiful view over the hilly landscape.
There is a generous and fully equipped kitchen connected to the living room.
The Second House
The layout of the second house is similar to the main house. It has a constructed size of 98 square meters. It comprises two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor. The staircase passes by a guest toilet before you arrive in the living room. There is an equipped kitchen with access to the terrace overlooking the stunning countryside and hills.
Slightly separated from the houses is a comfortable lounge area around the 5x10m pool. There are sun terraces, a covered terrace, a bar with barbecue area and a small pool house.
With the main house is an enclosed private garden with several storage units.
Around the houses and pool area are several mature trees, gardens, as well as a vegetable garden and fruit trees.
Water, Gas and Electricity
Both properties are supplied with a 3 phase installation of mains electricity. The water supply is maintained by the local water company supplying the area of El Albarico and Fuente de Albarico. They have yet to install meters, so no bills have been issued and the town hall of Bedar is currently coordinating the project.
In addition to mains water, the property has a 1/8th share in a bore hole. This supplied the property for many years before the installation of mains water. The water is still available and in regular use.
Gas is provided by 35kg bottles. The installation has a current safety certificate and consists of a six bottle supply (3 in supply mode and 3 in reserve, as required). There is a six bottle contract in place. You can order a bottle change online and delivery is normally the following Tuesday.
