Finca in Coin – This beautifully reformed finca is full of character and charm. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty near the Rio Grande River in Southern Spain it combines the tranquility of rural living with ease of access to local facilities and is only a short drive from the coast. This is an ideal equestrian property with enough land to grow your own hay, a huge barn/garage (which can also be accessed directly from the house) leading to an ample hay/food storage area and three enormous loose boxes opening to hard standing with direct access to two beautiful meadows with a large field shelter. There is more than enough room to maneuver horse boxes and the property has an OCA licence for 5 horses. The area is a dream for hacking – the river is within easy reach and there are tracks that lead for miles into the open, rolling countryside. In springtime the land is carpeted with flowers and the views of mountains and valleys are spectacular all year round. For the more competitive rider there are high class jumping and dressage events within easy reach. This property was renovated in 2000, it was originally a typical Spanish farmhouse where the animals were kept downstairs and the living area was upstairs, the owners using local materials transformed it in to a beautiful Country House, but because of the amazing views upstairs they capitalized on this by keeping the main living area upstairs and putting the bedrooms downstairs. So the bedrooms benefit from the coolness of being downstairs, but also allowing you to step out of your bedroom in to a lovely private courtyard. The property benefits from 2 kitchens, the main one upstairs leading in to a light airy living/dining area and a kitchen/utility room downstairs, which serves the outside courtyard and covered terrace. From the living room you can access the upstairs terrace which is partially covered and has panoramic views across the countryside, the terrace lends itself to installing Glass Curtains so you have a Solarium in the winter months. Also upstairs you have an office, which has beautiful views over the rolling hills and has internet access, in addition there is a separate toilet, overall the upstairs has been designed with entertaining in mind and accommodating a large family. There are 4 double bedrooms, 2 with en suite bathrooms and 2 of the bedrooms have a shared bathroom, plus a separate toilet, these rooms are light and airy and there is ample wardrobe space plus additional storage cupboards always a must when you have a family. Also downstairs you have a large spacious hall with a traditional large wooden door with wrought iron decoration. The front area of the house has pattern imprinted concrete, it is a spacious area and can take several cars, there is a pagoda in front of the house, which has an old established grape vine, in the summer months this gives a wonderful shady area and of course sweet tasting grapes, a lovely place to sit in the hot evenings. The gardens are mature and it is almost like having a little piece of England, in the middle of the Spanish countryside, you have your walled courtyard leading on to a beautiful lawn with mature shrubs and of course the Pièce de résistance the swimming pool set in the middle of the lawn, this is a private area, not over looked and benefits from being South facing.
