A former working mill, at least 225 years old, this exceptionally attractive and historic house, once the property of the family of one of Granada's most famous authors and subsequently of one of the city's most renowned guitarists and composers, is now a beautiful family home, easily accessed by car and, unusually for the Albayzín, has its own garage. There is a very attractive private patio and there are terraces at two levels with Alhambra and Generalife views.
The house is fully renovated and many of the original features have been maintained or where this was not possible, antiques have been substituted. Local materials, such as hand-painted Moorish tiles, have been used in the renovation and the carpentry is of solid wood throughout. The accommodation is arranged as follows: Basement: a charming bodega comprised of two caves, once the site of the old mill race. Ground Floor: entry hall with antique doors, dining room with doors to the patio, lounge with wood-burner, fitted kitchen, utility area, boiler & laundry room and toilet. From the patio there is a door to the garage, which can also be accessed from the entry hall.
First Floor: a charming study, one en-suite bedroom, two further bedrooms which share another bathroom.
Second Floor: a large open plan studio consisting of bedroom and dressing area, bathroom and kitchenette. From this floor there is access to the two terraces, one of which is covered for shade and the other is open to trap winter sunshine. From the first and second floors the rooms have views over the Alhambra, the Generalife or over the patio. Outside there is a charming irregular shaped patio shaded by mature trees and bushes. An entirely private and secret hideaway just minutes from the city centre.
Mains electricity, mains water, telephone and broadband internet are all connected. The house is centrally heated using piped town gas.
Located in the lower Albayzín, approximately seven minutes walk from the city centre and from Plaza Larga, the heart of the old Albayzín. There is a bus stop within a very short distance of the house with buses to the city centre and connections to all other lines in the Gran Via de Colón.
