Built 273m² • 4 Beds • 3 Baths • Terraces N/A • Plot 800m²
Situated between Coin & Mijas in a tranquil, rural area and yet only minutes away from the bustling town of Alhaurin el Grande, stands this detached villa with private pool. The present owners designed and built the property and every comfort has been considered.
The living area has a huge cathedral style ceiling, a log burning fire and underfloor heating in almost every room. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 on the upper floor and one guest room- ensuite downstairs with wheel chair access and extra wide doors.
The terraces from the upper bedrooms have open views to the surrounding olive groves and lovely countryside and the low maintenance garden has a salt water infinity pool and summer house, complete with barbecue, dishwasher and fridge.
This would make a great family home and a viewing is highly recommended!
The Area: Forming an imposing natural fortress, the traditional town of Alhaurín El Grande is steeped in history, soaked in classical Andalusian architecture and atmosphere throughout, and boasts beautiful views across the undulating interior of the Costa del Sol.
It also has a large expat population. With its easy access to Málaga Airport, homes in Alhaurín El Grande have been attracting British and Irish buyers for decades. An inland town at the forefront of the British love affair with moving to southern Spain, Alhaurín is the epitome of the El Dorado village.
Cafés, pizza parlours, bodegas, tapas bars and traditional Spanish restaurants abound throughout the centre of town. Alhaurín's authenticity has never been questioned. Unlike Mijas and Benahavís, Alhaurín El Grande doesn't bring out the bunting for anybody. What you see is what you get... and what you get is typically laid-back Spain: pet dogs take themselves for walks along the quiet streets; old men enjoy the shade, a strong espresso and a game of chess with friends on the plaza; tanned youngsters scoot about on their mopeds in a carefree fashion; and stylish señoritas saunter by, oblivious to the heads they turn.
In among this classic slice of Iberian life, a growing and happy band of mostly British expats enjoy the same lifestyle, adding their very own flavour to proceedings. The shops and cafés that inhabit the main street all vie for your custom, while the open plazas provide the perfect opportunity to take the weight off.
Beyond the confines of the market town itself, much of Alhaurín's charm lies in its rural surroundings, where numerous hiking trails exist, taking you through stunning olive and citrus groves, challenging scrubland and fragrant pine forests. Whether by foot, cycle or horseback, the leafy countryside of Alhaurín El Grande is there to be explored, an especially rewarding experience during the blistering summer months.
