This beautifully renovated house in the hills feels ''lost among the trees'' but is only a short drive from Tarifa and the wide beaches of the area. The large plot has been designed to suit a relaxed indoor/outdoor lifestyle; bedrooms lead directly onto the terrace and the plot is scattered with seating areas with the right amount of shade and sun to suit all times of the day and evening. There is a wildflower meadow with almond, olive and pistachio trees on the North side of the plot, a wooded area in the middle where you can swing a hammock and watch the wind in the trees during the heat of the day. The pool terrace is bathed in sunshine from mid morning and the traditional rose garden at the front of the property is interspersed with fig, nectarine, quince, cherry and mulberry trees. There are multiple locations to watch the sun set over the mountains and sea as the plot is West-facing, in the tranquility of the nature and the sound of the bells of the goats returning to their farm home.
The property is perfectly situated for walking the forested hills, cycling, mountain biking and bird-watching (all the migratory song birds take a pause in our forests - quite the morning chorus!), as well as being close to Tarifa town and its sandy beaches but be advised that access to the property is via a dirt track of about 10-15mins (plus another 5-10 mins to Tarifa) where a 4 x 4 might be necessary at times in the winter. Low ride cars are not suitable for access.
The property includes 4 double bedrooms plus one single along with 3 x bathrooms, kitchen with normal appliances, indoor dining area with seating for 10, shaded pergola outdoor seating area for 10, living room with seating area and snug, conservatory, outdoor laundry area with washing machine, plot lighting for outdoor evening dining, fruit trees, heated covered pool of 5m x 4m, private drive with off-road parking for 2 cars, satellite internet and central heating in main house with open fire in salon.
