A truly exceptional house in Saleres, the most authentic of all the villages in the Lecrin Valley. At the extreme edge of the village with views which take your breath away when you enter the courtyard, this house has three en-suite bedrooms and room for a further double sofa bed on the top floor study. It has an 8×5 swimming pool and garden and a roof terrace and a protected south facing lower terrace for the winter sun. There are two wood burning stoves in the house and night storage heaters throughout and double glazing. The main bedroom and the top study have air conditioning.
You enter the property through an ancient door, salvaged from the church in the lower barrio of Pinos del Valle, into the mainly tiled garden making for easy maintenance. To your right is a cloister with an outdoor kitchen, complete with barbecue and oven and an electric induction hob. At the end of the cloister is a shower room with WC. In front of you is the pool and views across the valley’s orange and lemon groves to the mountains.
At the other side of the garden down a small flight of steps there is a small workshop and beyond that a vine-covered terrace and more steps leading to the lower sun terrace.
You can enter the house either into the kitchen or the salon. The kitchen is fully equipped with marble surfaces and sink, and terracotta tiles on the floor which is a theme continued throughout the house, There is also a small pantry also housing the washing machine and tumble dryer and a door leading to outside storage space.
The salon is of good proportions and very light with double doors leading to the garden. There is a wood burning stove and night storage heating. On this floor is a bathroom with bath.
Downstairs is a lovely cool double bedroom, ideal for the summer nights, with an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.
On the first floor are two more en-suite double bedrooms with full French windows allowing you to lie in bed in the morning and enjoy the fantastic views.
On the top floor is a large salon with wood-burning stove ideal for a study or reading room, and ample room for a sofa-bed. Full-length glass doors lead to a roof terrace with the best views from the whole house.
