Located at the heart of Andalusia in the town of Casariche.
The house has been totally reformed to produce a modern comfortable home over 2 floors. From the street you enter via a decorative black steel and glass door to a large entrance hall with through double doors to the dining room, which acts as the hub of the house.
The living room and kitchen are accessed via arches from the dining room and double glazed French doors lead from the dining room to the rear patio terrace perfect for alfresco dining and watching the world go by with a glass of something cold.
Access to the utility room leads to the downstairs shower room and workshop area and onto the garage.

door onto the large south facing terrace above the garage, workshop and utility room.
Features include new plumbing and wiring throughout with ample sockets in every room (the kitchen has 13 alone).
Uniform floor tiles have been used throughout the downstairs including the rear patio to bring the outside in and the upstairs is in a light oak laminate apart from the white tiles of the bathroom.
All walls inside and out are painted white to create a crisp light atmosphere and as the house is end of terrace every room has an exterior window giving plenty of natural light throughout.
Loft insulation (rare in Spain) keeps the house warm in winter and cool in summer.
This is a unique house and offers very good value for money it has slowly been reformed over 5 years to provide a comfortable home. Unlike many traditional Spanish townhouses it is very light with a spacious feel both inside and out as it has very few houses around it so it is not hemmed in as many are.
The garage is a good bonus but it is possible to park directly outside the property on a flat road which doesn't? It really go anywhere and thus has very light traffic flow.
It is about a 5 minute walk to the town centre where you can get all the shops since frutaria , fresh fish from the market , local supermarkets , bars the nearest bar/cafe is at the end of the road and of course a delightful open air public swimming pool surrounded by lush grass and shady trees where you can relax and spend the day cooling off. Cycling and walking are popular pastimes with many on and off road routes in the glorious surrounding countryside and stunning landscape possessed by olive trees.
The weather in this part of Spain is what many people come to live here for with around 300 days of sunshine per year. Essentially it has very hot dry summers and cooler wetter winters. The summer temperatures can reach to 40 C
(100 F) and above in July and August but conversely can fall to below freezing at night during the winter largely due to the very clear night skies.
The winter days are usually sunny and Christmas dinner can often be quite comfortably eaten on the terrace.
For these reasons summer cooling and winter heating are essential to maintain comfort levels contrary to what people may say about living in inland Andalusia.
The wood burning stove will heat the whole house during the winter burning olive wood which is about
40 a ton and will last about a month. The fire is great for BBQS as you can simply take the hot coals from the fire and put them in the BBQ for instant cooking.
The air conditioning is vital for the hottest summer months of July and August when it gets a bit too hot and you want a cool nights sleep. They also heat especially useful if the fire is not lit all the time.
