Calle Luengo Bajo
Tucked away in a quiet street of the ancient quarter of this moorish town, is a sympathetically restored 200 year old town house. The ground floor has been restored and offers: An open layout with spacious dining / kitchen area built into the rock of the hillside, a cosy sitting room and bedroom with panoramic views to the plain and mountains beyond. The package is completed with a modern bathroom with shower and bidet.
Details of the Ground Floor
Newly built kitchen with electric water heater. A double bedroom and a sitting room with a fitted aircon unit. Bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet. There is a spiral staircase leading up to the second and third floors, currently awaiting refurbishment.
Parking is available on-street less than one minute away from the house. The bonus is that you can be sure that no cars will be driving by the front door to spoil your views.
On the path outside the house there’s a typical low Spanish wall (‘pollo’) where you can chat with the neighbours (in Spanish, of course).
The house is very old (200 years) and is built up from the path outside by a 15cm step and a traditional narrow wooden doorway. Once inside, everything is on one floor. The outside door can open up a second leaf if you need access for mountain bikes or pushchairs.
This ground floor has been let out as a holiday home for the last 5 years.
Second & Third Floors
The spiral staircase leads up from the ground floor to the living room above. There is also an additional entrance way from the pedestrian street into this middle floor.
The second and third floors can be completely separate from the self-contained ground floor and comprise:
Second Floor – large open living room, kitchen area. Two bedrooms and a bathroom – all to be refurbished. The bedrooms have small balconies, offering awesome views of the mountains. Stairs lead up to the third floor.
Third Floor – open plan top level, could make two bedrooms. The whole top floor is open plan with a low ceiling. There is a ladder leading up to the roof. There are windows facing out to the views of the mountains on one side and over the narrow, pedestrian only street on the other.
The roof was repaired in 2012.
