We can't call it differently.
It took the owner 5 years to build and he did do so with great care.
Everything is quality here, from the original woodwork in the kitchen and the fitted wardrobes, to the ironwork and the creative Italian windows.
The access is great: a country property on fully flat land and with fully flat access is rare enough, being only a few minute drive from town makes it even more special.
And still: the tranquility, peace, privacy and views of the true countryside.
Even if south-facing, the property is delightfully cool in summer. So much so that the integrated AC in all rooms is, in fact, not often used.
The main lounge is a great place to get away from the heat and the sharp light of the never ending summer months - and at the same time the fireplace will be the centre in the winter months.
The 4 bedrooms are spacious and all come with quality wardrobes.
And then there's the surprise on the 1st floor: a second lounge in which one can really withdraw from the rest of the world. With its own door leading onto a terrace with views of the whole area.
Alhaurín el Grande is one of the biggest and most vibrant towns in the area, with a privileged location on the skirts of the mountain ‘Sierra de Mijas', overlooking the Guadalhorce valley. The village is close to the city of Málaga and just a short drive from the coastal areas of La Cala de Mijas and Fuengirola.
The Arabs named it ‘Jardín de Alá', translated as ‘Ala's Garden'. Later, the Catholic Kings added ‘El Grande' (the big one) to distinguish it from its sister town Alhaurín de la Torre. Currently its economy is focused on trade and agriculture, which was the main economic engine of the region 1000 years ago when oil, wheat and figs were already produced and delivered to Málaga city and port. Its inhabitants are known as alhaurinos but there is also a large presence of foreigners settled in the town.
Besides the historic buildings, fincas and townhouses, there are also many modern apartments and a large golf complex located in Alahurín el Grande. There is a big variety of restaurants, bars and shops were locals mix with other nationalities. The main plaza is always busy and vibrant. Besides that, it offers a superb view of the valley. The village offers the best of both worlds: coast and inland!
The village of Alhaurín el Grande is located just 25 minutes (22 km.) from the city of Málaga and the airport. The beaches of the Costa del Sol (Fuengirola/Mijas) are only a 15 minute (18 km.) drive away.
Surrounded by a fence, and with a depth of 150 cms, the small pool is safe for children - and it has sun all day long.
An additional small outside storage room and a carport for 2 cars - and outside space for another 3 - make the property complete.
There's an alarm and a remote control for the gate.
In short, the key words are: handy, easy, calm, quality.
