Wonderful 6-bedroom country house for sale on the edge of the calm waters of Lake Viñuela, one of the most stunning locations in the Axarquia region of Spain.
Lucas Fox is proud to present the Manquillo farmhouse, an exceptional 390 m² country estate on a 40,000 m² plot nestled in the valley of Lake Viñuela, with marvelous open views of the surrounding mountains and olive groves.
We access the house through a large electric gate. To the right, there is a softball tennis court and an old barn that serves as a workshop, although it could be used as a private study with a bedroom, living room and bathroom, or a closed garage for several cars. Right after this same construction, we have a pergola to park three or four cars.
The main farmhouse is divided into two floors.
On the ground floor, we have a large entrance hall that leads to a first master suite with a built-in wardrobe, air conditioning, a dressing room and a large bathroom with a shower and bathtub. This bedroom has private access to a beautiful Andalusian patio that leads to its wonderful gardens. Then we access a beautiful typical country-style kitchen, with a pantry, high-end oven and granite countertops. It has arches that open onto the dining room, a very pleasant room, thanks to its large windows that offer incredible views of the mountains in the area. The lounge with wood burning stove is very welcoming and also has patio doors leading to an open patio and a large covered terrace with outdoor kitchen and barbecue.
As soon as we go up to the upper floor, we access a very pretty corridor with a double-height ceiling with exposed beams, since this area is open to the entrance hall on the lower floor. We access two double bedrooms, with fitted wardrobes, air conditioning and balconies. These first two bedrooms share a bathroom with shower, bidet and toilet.
We continue and access a terrace, which offers wonderful views of the mountains and the countryside where the Viñuela reservoir reaches when it is full. Through this terrace we access what could perfectly be a private apartment, since it has its own electricity box. It has a corridor that leads to two bedrooms with two beds each and built-in wardrobes, which also share a bathroom with a bathtub. Finally, after a small corner with a kitchenette, we access the second master suite in the house with a private bathroom. This bedroom is majestic due to the height of its ceiling, its beautiful living room that opens onto a large balcony with views of the wonderful exteriors of the house such as the garden and the pool, fitted wardrobes and air conditioning.
Returning to the entrance hall, we go down to what is the semi-basement floor, where you can enjoy an authentic game and enjoyment room, with a minibar, a ping-pong table and a pool table, perfect for organizing incredible family celebrations and with guests . This floor was formerly a closed garage, so it could be recovered, if preferred.
And if you have been delighted with the interior and the distribution of this beautiful farmhouse, you will be even more impressed with its exteriors. The current owners have worked and renovated every corner. They have planted trees in the garden closest to the building. The pool area is idyllic, it looks like a small hotel, as it has several parasols with sun loungers, a dining area covered by a pergola where up to 12 people can dine, a petanque court for fans of this game and its bar next to. In addition, there is a well-being area with a jacuzzi for those who want to relax, all built with total respect for nature.
The other very interesting aspect of this house is that in the upper area of the large plot there is a second house built on wheels. It is a three-bedroom house with two bathrooms and a large living room with kitchen. This house offers incredible potential to the whole for the person who is looking to invest in a property to do a business, such as a mini-hotel, a boutique hotel or even a true Bed & Breakfast. Currently, it offers great potential for profitability, thanks to the fact that up to now it has enjoyed very good occupancy during high season periods.
It could also be ideal for a family looking for a holiday residence where they can relax and enjoy the tranquility.
