The Villa
A stylish Villa in a very private setting, fully enclosed with access via private metal gates, the house is approached via a cobbled driveway to a lovely shaded parking area at the end of the driveway with access to a very large double garage. The design of the house has a Mediterranean feel and you are met by terrace areas at the front with beautiful and colourful planting. There are a number of entrances to the house, the main entrance, directly into the kitchen from a dining terrace and also access to the rear of the kitchen from the garage. From the main entrance you arrive in an expansive hallway where you will find the staircase to the first floor, this area is beautifully tiled and has access to the ground floor lounge, bedrooms and family bathroom. To the left you will find the generous lounge via large arched hardwood doors. Again, the lounge floor is beautifully tiled, is an excellent size complete with brick built fireplace and hardwood double doors providing access to the terrace. A further open archway leads you to the fully kitchen with quality wood cabinetry and sufficient space for dining. Again from the hallway, you will find a separate WC and a large family bathroom complete with a huge walk in double shower with glass enclosure. Off the hallway are the 3 generous double bedrooms with hardwood windows and brass fittings. One of the bedrooms again has access via hardwood double doors to a terrace area overlooking the wonderful gardens and pool. Due to the open layout of the ground floor this is flooded with natural light.

The 2 individual houses can provide open plan studio style accommodation with a kitchen and bathroom however new owners can complete in the way they would like, it may even be possible to complete as 1 larger house. The houses have been completed with first fix electrics and water and require the installation of kitchen and bathroom, windows etc to complete as desired. These two houses benefit from a gorgeous location with direct access to the river where you will find a stunning waterfall, this really is a place of beauty where you could sit and relax all day or bathe in the cool natural pools.

The Mill
The original Mill is set over two floors, is very large and is virtually intact as original, complete with Mill stone and working water wheel, it is very rare, if possible at all to find a Mill in the this condition. It is believed to be the only one remaining on this river. Water is channelled to the wheel form the stream with a dam system at the end of the land and provides water to the mill via a natural and raised granite canal. The Mill is solidly built, in stone in excellent condition and it is important to say this is an urban article with habitation approval. The building has huge potential and could provide a stunning dwelling, even retaining some original features, or possibly 2 separate living spaces over separate floors as there are independent entrances to both floors. Being the Mill this is also of course riverside with access to the river. Both the Mill and the renovated stone houses have access independent from the main Villa.

The 2 storey stone house, in excellent condition, complete with roof and granite doorways, sits on its own urban article and benefits from gated access independent from the other buildings. The property lends itself to be renovated as as a 2 or even 3 bedroom house, totally private with excellent outside space with cork oaks and olive trees

The whole property available sits in a wonderful area of 3 hectares, surrounded by nature with the stunning river boundary. There is a small wine producing vineyard as mentioned earlier, and abundance of fruit trees including tangerine, apple, pear and plums, olive trees and cork oaks, The land has excellent access to all buildings and is very private with meadow areas also. The property has an abundance of water from the river and also a number of water mines with areas with existing irrigation system.

Overall, this is an incredible and rarely available opportunity to purchase a large property with multiple buildings that can provide family living, rental income, community living or a tourism project as desired in a wonderful setting and location. The backdrop to the property is a lovely view to the Gardunha mountains.
