Luxury four bedroom villa with pool and outdoor kitchen plus licensed boarding kennels with 9 indoor kennels suitable for cats and dogs and 7 self contained outdoor doggy villas.
This whole property sits in an elevated position above the historic spa town of Alhama de Granada on a 35,000 m2 plot mainly laid to almond trees. The property consists of a detached four bedroom villa and the boarding kennel business both of which have their own separate driveways and entrances positioned above the historic spa town of Alhama de Granada.
The villa: is a chalet style single construction which is situated in the middle of the plot. There is a double garage and a utility area plus stoned parking area for several vehicles. From the parking area you can enter the villa via the original main door or via the gated entrance to the kitchen walled courtyard where you can enter with provisions directly into the large and professionally designed kitchen. The kitchen has units and appliances on three sides around a large central island which has plenty of storage and a wine fridge beneath, a breakfast bar at one end and a lower preparation area at the other end all topped with black granite work surfaces. On one side of the island are floor to ceiling units which house ample storage and two eye level electric ovens and a microwave, whilst on the other side there is an L shaped run of base units along one full wall incorporating a five burner gas range hob with its feature brick and wooden cooker hood and extractor and continue under the kitchen window where you will find a Belfast style sink and a dishwasher integrated into the base unit. The kitchen area is open plan into a large dining area with feature brick fireplace and wood burning fire. At one end of the dining area there floor to ceiling glass windows and doors which open up to give access to the terrace dining areas and outdoor kitchen. At the other end of the dining area there is an open space with three doors. The first opens up into a large and bright lounge which also has a large feature fireplace with wood burner and floor to ceiling windows and doors which open up onto the terrace and pool deck. These glazed areas in both the living kitchen and lounge allow you to combine indoor and outdoor living.
The master suite with its two walk in dressing rooms and its en-suite bathroom with large walk in shower is also accessed from the living kitchen/dining room as is the passageway to the original main door. Off this passageway there is a second en-suite bedroom, two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom with full bath and enclosed shower plus a dedicated office. (this could also be used as an additional single bedroom if required).
Outside the lounge and the dining area is the very large terrace providing several dining areas and the impressive outdoor kitchen which has a gas/charcoal BBQ, built in pizza oven, wine cooler and sink wrapped around an island bar area all of which is topped with granite work surfaces. One step down from this area takes you to the pool terrace and the heated kidney shaped swimming pool, sunken fire pit lounge and raised 'gin deck' which makes the most of the outstanding mountain views. To one side of this amazing entertaining area are gardens where there is a Jacuzzi hot tub and small shaded summer house. This area has a gated entrance to the owners' fully enclosed dog run with built kennel, and the walled kitchen garden, utility and garage. At the rear of the house there is a large stoned garden area full of colourful flowers and herbs. From here there is a stone pathway leading up to the kennels which are fully fenced and separated from the villa and surrounding almond trees.
The villa is fully double glazed and benefits from underfloor oil fired heating.
The Kennels are licensed and meet all current regulations. There is a reception/kitchen area which is built onto the end of the block of nine indoor kennels each with their own outdoor runs and indoor sleeping areas which can be heated. There is a larger open area outside of all nine indoor kennels where individuals animals can be brought out to play or be groomed. All nine units can be utilised for both dogs or cats. In addition to the indoor kennels there are a total of seven outdoor 'doggy villas'. Three are located close to the reception where there are several separate gated areas providing isolation when necessary and four more along the driveway leading to the main entrance to the kennels which is also gated so that entry can be controlled only for clients.
*It has taken the current owners over three years to obtain all the correct paperwork for the kennels as many different departments must approve the land, the fencing, the animal accommodation etc., before the veterinary body finally approves commercial opening. However during this lengthy process the local authority has allowed the kennels to function taking in some paying guests whilst they have also supported a local animal rescue society who have also contributed to the accommodation of animals until they have been fostered or re homed. This has given the current owners a large client list of loyal customers who now use the kennels now that all is in full swing.
