Everything you need to know about this castle / palace for sale

Lucas Fox presents this historical estate, the Huerta Grande, Mudejar architectural heritage of the beautiful town of La Zubia. Just 4 kilometers away from the centre of Granada capital, 10 minutes from the monumental fortress of the Alhambra, and 20 minutes from the airport. 

Once owned by the Marquis of Montes, as the stone shield of arms shows on the façade, the palace was used by Manuel de Falla, famous Spanish composer, who spent his summer holidays at the estate. 

It was rebuilt in 1840, although ancient notarial deeds show that it is much older, dating back to before the 17th century. La Huerta Grande, a Mudejar-style mansion, is a whole story in a single property. This palace would be perfect for a person who wants to invest in a property of this caliber, to create a boutique hotel or renovate it for private use. The property is in good condition, and would benefit from renovation to maximize its full potential. 

We enter through the main private alley, leading to a courtyard with a parking area for 6 cars, and to the old stables as well as to the service and caretaker's property, now converted into 6 independent apartments, each with a kitchen area, living room/ bedroom, and bathroom. 

The main area of the property is divided into 2 floors, in addition to the access to a tower overlooking the entire town of La Zubia, Granada and the Sierra Nevada (ski resort just 30 minutes away). 

On the ground floor we have 5 rooms, the notary's office, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, a large dining room with chimney, and two Andalusian patios. 

On the upper floor, we find 4 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, a large living room with a terrace, a large office with library, and 2 kitchens. 

The exteriors are very relaxing, with tree shades, cool in the summer, ponds and a swimming pool. The estate has 6,000 sqm, with beautiful gardens, centenary trees of high botanical and historical value, an orchard, and a park. 

Contact us for more information about the property as well as to organize a visit.
