Wild Boar Cottage
Full Description: This is a well-built and stylish property in an excellent location.
The finca of 10,000 m² has no nearby neighbours, panoramic views and is situated in the warm dip below Pitres, in the centre of three Taha villages of Mecina, Ferreirola & Atalbeitar. It backs onto the GR7 footpath.
The house of 60 m² is 8 years old. It has deep foundations, insulation in thick, stone-faced walls and roof, double-glazing throughout and a wooden floor in the living room and double bedroom.
The main living room is open plan with the kitchen and dining area and there's a library room that curtains off to convert to a single bedroom. Both bedrooms have large, in-built wardrobes. There's a mosaic-tiled walk-in shower in the bathroom.
Two porches provide shade and space to sit out. A covered passageway along the back houses the utilities: pressure pump, washing machine, automatic Junkers water heater and firewood store.
Water is provided by a local alberca which feeds three 3,000-litre storage tanks and water rights are written into the property deed. There is mains electricity.
The house is south-facing, gets plenty of sun and is never really cold. For the winter, there's a top of the range Hergom woodburning stove that keeps the place toasty. The thick walls and insulation keep it similarly cool in summer.
The pool is guitar-shaped and 8.5 metres x 6 metres at its widest. It hasn't been used for 3 years so is suitably green and unattractive now, but the filter system machinery all works and can be set on a timer.
It's very peaceful yet well connected by road for trips to Orgiva (35 mins), the coast and Granada (both 1 hr 30 mins).
There are olive, almond and other fruit trees, a vegetable garden and plenty of even land for more planting.
A toolshed and caravan provide additional storage space and are included in the sales price.
