This very private estate is hidden away in the hills behind the traditional village of Benahavis. The property is exceptionally situated and secluded but only five minutes drive from Benahavis and twenty to thirty minutes from the marinas, restaurants and beaches of Puerto Banus, Marbella and Estepona.
The estate comprises an extensive and historic Spanish manor farmhouse and a more recently built guest house, both centrally heated and furnished with Spanish antiques and Mallorcan fabrics. Incorporating the ruins of a Moorish tower, the house is surrounded by a beautiful and well-known terraced garden which still has the original Moorish irrigation streams and channels. The remainder of the estate consists of several hundred hectares of completely private and totally unspoilt indigenous Iberian woodland, dissected by the Guadalmina River and a series of crystal clear springs and streams and incorporating a small organic farm and productive organic kitchen garden.
The main house has many original features, including beautiful antique tiling detailing. Cool in the summer the high ceilinged, large drawing room with its decorative original Spanish wall mounted plates and exposed beams is a delightful relaxing but elegant room, opening onto a terrace with days beds under a shady vine covered pergola. This terrace is one of many where you can spend the day either overlooking the gardens or down by the pool. The large dining room, with a traditional refectory table on the flagstone floor, is used by the family for formal evening dining or a more informal gathering. Every part of this rambling old manor house has charm and the many touches of a much loved family home.
The Guest House is ideal for guests or an extended family party. Prettily decorated, the rooms open onto a large sun terrace with huge day beds overlooking its own full sized pool and garden below - completely private.
There are two swimming pools, with the one below the main house being heated in the autumn, winter and spring. Between the main house and the guest house, there is a spacious and very well equipped games/TV room and, behind the main house, there is a tennis court with a shaded viewing area. There is a helicopter landing pad behind the tennis court.
