Fantastic country home with spectacular views of olive groves and the Mediterranean Sea

Cortijo el Melion is a beautiful, detatched country home situated on the border of a nature park in the province of Granada in Andalusia, Southern Spain.

The house is south-facing and has panoramic views of the Mediterranean sea and the tumbling olive and fruit groves of the Valle Tropical. The house is in fantastic condition, ready to be moved straight into and is situated 20 minutes drive outside the nearby village of Otívar in the Costa Tropical and just one hour's drive from Granada airport. Located just 40 minutes away are beautiful tropical beaches and hidden coves.

The house is sold partially furnished and is almost self-sufficient - powered by solar energy, watered by its own spring and fuelled by olive wood for the stoves.

The house measures approximately 120 m2 and is recently-built and comprises:

* 3 good sized double bedrooms
* Large, airy through-lounge
* 2 wood burning stoves
* Open-plan fitted kitchen with gas hob & fridge-freezer
* Arched sun lounge
* Private study area
* Spacious bathroom and separate, water-saving WC. (There is space to add an en-suite next to the main bedroom)
* Gas water heater
* Washing machine

There is 12,000 m2 of land with several pretty garden terraces in front and to the side of the house - with two barbecues and a large plunge pool - and extensive olive groves on the sunny slopes behind the house.

The land comprises:

* 150 olive trees
* 50 small oaks
* numerous young pines
* hidden mediterranean palm garden
* abundant lavender, wild rosemary, thyme & sage, juniper and rock rose

As the land borders a natural park - with recently improved trails to secluded waterfalls - it is treat for nature lovers and bird watchers as you often see partridges, eagles, hoopoes, bee-eaters (and bees!), butterflies, geckos and whole families of wild goats. There is little light (or noise) pollution and so there are breathtaking views of the milky way for stargazers.

If you are looking for a second home in southern Spain, or planning a life change and in need of a project that can face up to the future, the Melion can provide all the inspiration and ideas you are looking for. With its own water and power, the Melion is virtually cost-free to maintain, making it is the perfect place for periods away or ideal if you are looking for a self-sustaining lifestyle.

The olive trees are the perfect companion crop to mature alongside the house and the land and together with your own organic olive oil and natural spring water, the abundance of wild lavender, sage, thyme, juniper and other medicinal plants make it an ideal location to begin a business in natural cosmetics or alternative remedies.

A place to put your dreams into practice!
