This magnificent villa, steeped with historical significance dating back to the Phoenician period, is situated on a hill close to Frigiliana and Nerja, located on a plot of 7,600m2, and enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the sea, countryside and the mountains from a totally private and secluded headland. The drive to the coast is just 10 minutes by car and 5 minutes to the motorway, allowing access to Malaga Airport in 50 minutes. The popular and award winning, whitewashed village of Frigiliana is just a short walk or less than a couple of minutes by car, and so is the unique hamlet of La Molineta.
Approached by a private drive bordered by mature pine trees, accommodation is spacious, full of rustic charm, and is set around an attractive traditional Spanish inner/central courtyard of some 80m2.
Upon entering the property, there is an entrance hall leading to a 41m2 living room and dining room, both featuring attractive wood burning stoves, and from the dining room, the large windows provide a beautiful mountain and countryside back drop when entertaining guests. The 14m2 country style kitchen, with traditional serving hatch into the lounge and with saloon style swinging doors, is well equipped. The separate pantry and a storage cupboard can be found just outside in the entrance hall.
Further off the entrance hall are two spacious, 18m2 bedrooms, both south facing, with fitted wardrobes, air conditioning units and one of them benefiting from direct access to the inner courtyard. On the same level are two bathrooms, one of 6.5m2 with a walk-in shower, and the more spacious 10m2 one with a shower over the bath.
The 16.5m2 study (that could be easily converted into a bedroom) has direct access to a small, private courtyard. With the appropriate planning permission, this courtyard could be converted into a third bathroom. There are stairs from the study that lead down to another spacious, south facing bedroom of 16.5m2.
The 80m2 inner/central courtyard currently has awning installed in its centre, enabling to you to sit outside whatever the weather, yet this can be easily retracted should you wish. Around the outside of the inner courtyard is permanent cover, perfect to sit in the shade on those hot summer days, and to enjoy the spectacular views from one of its many windows looking to the south and west.
As you approach the stairs leading to the main house, there is a separate out building housing a large double garage/workshop, with parking outside for approximately 5 vehicles. There are hundreds of square metres of terracing surrounding the property, including an original, cobbled corn grinding circle and an attractive pool of 6x4m with an outside shower. Along with the inner courtyard, the 30m2 square pergola and covered terrace is where you will spend the majority of your time. It is the ideal place for you to sit back, unwind, and take in the views, or to entertain guests and enjoy al fresco dining together.
The natural garden is well maintained with a wide selection of mature trees, and there are truly magnificent panoramic views to be had from the elevated position that this property is situated on.
There are air conditioning units throughout the property, solar panels for the hot water supply, and the property is totally private.
We do have 360 walk through videos of this property that can be shared upon request.
