Exceptional country property with fabulous views of the mountains and the ‘white Andalucian villages’ of Riogordo, Colmenar and Comares. Situated in the municipality of Riogordo this unique property consists of 10,880 m2 of land, a house of 180 m2 and a swimming pool. Most of the land is planted with 160 mature income producing olive trees. A very welcome new addition to the land is the circa 300 Syrah grape stocks that were planted in the spring of 2016. These Certified plants come from world renowned Viveros Villanueva in Navarra Spain, close to the Rioja region. To compliment the wine growing experience and investment a superb wine cellar ‘bodega’ has been created. The ‘bodega’ can stock up to 1500 bottles of wine.
The house, including its 80 m2 of verandas, is 180 m2. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 en suite bathrooms and a guest bathroom with shower.

The garage is over 40 m2. It has place for 2-3 cars. It has a 7 meter long work bench with 8 electric plugs
Close to the pool there is a cooking area complete with sink and a 4 ring gas hob and oven. Also featured is a state of the art Argentinian ‘parrilla’ (grill). Next to the ‘parrilla is a solid, massive granite top slab of 2 m long by 76 cm wide used to prepare the food – dough for the bread and pizzas, etc – that goes into the oven.
Leaving the pool BBQ area and passing the 3 tier white fountain, an elevated dining area has been created around a huge olive tree more than 100 years old Also under this imperial tree there is a wrought iron table and 8 chairs. There is also a 3.20 long counter top, complete with sink and another grill area. This grill area is within arms length of the well stocked herb and spice patch of mint, thyme, rosemary, savoury, etc.
Adjacent to this majestic tree is a 100 m2 garden area to grow vegetables, plants and flowers. The top soil for this area was specially trucked from the Vinuela Dam and is soil from its tailings. In order not to spoil the exterior aesthetics of the house, a POWER STATION has been built 50 meters from the house. This cement structure houses the control units of the electricity producing wind mill and solar panels.
