The property offers spectacular views over the Zahara Lake to the Sierra de Grazalema Mountains..This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, secluded but not isolated.
The property is lovingly integrated into the well maintained gardens and natural landscape. The main house is where the owner lives and the restored farmhouse is used as holiday accommodation offering a substantial yearly income.
The main house is 14 years old and was built by the owners to a high standard. It measures a total of 220 m2, distributed in 2 floors. On the ground floor, with magnificent views over the lake, are the large lounge, kitchen and spacious terrace, with barbeque.

Adjoining the cottage is the original stable with feeding troughs. Double glazing throughout.
Outside the cottage is a spacious terrace, part of which is shaded by a vine. Just a few metres away is a view-point with a picnic bench to watch the most spectacular sunsets over the lake.
The exterior areas of small well integrated gardens surrounding the houses are well planned to give the maximum enjoyment of the countryside and views.
