Stunning and unique complete patio house with private central courtyard, several terraces and stunning countryside views 40 minutes from the coast.

Casa de los Carnevales is a fabulous property set in the heart of the old quarter off a quiet cobbled street in the lovely traditional white village of Alcala de los Gazules.

Alcala is ideally situated just on the edge of the Alcornacales National Park and the Sierra de Grazalema. Award winning beaches are just 40 minutes away where you can find arguably some of the best natural coastline in southern Europe. Clearly the properties location offers the best of both worlds.

The property itself has been beautifully renovated by the current owners to create a super family home. They have successfully combined the needs of modern day living whilst preserving the character features of the property such as exposed stone walls, beamed ceilings, decorative morrocan tiled floors and arched inset stone windows.

The living accommodation is conviniently arranged around the central courtyard on 2 floors with the 3rd floor being dedicated to the private roof terraces boasting stunning views. A brief description of the property is as follows:-

Entrance from the street into the main hallway with cobbled stone floor and doubled arched doors into the beautiful central patio decorated with flowering climbing plants and granite cobbles.

From the hallway to the left is the main living room with original beamed ceilings which were preserved during the renovation even though the floors above were completely replaced. A small archway leads through to the 3rd bedroom or large study continuing the theme with exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings. A door from this bedroom leads out onto the central courtyard.

Moving back the entrance hall and continuing to the right you will find a 2nd entrance to the property and the side street plus the ground floor family shower room decorated with traditional Moorish style tiles with built-in shower, basin, WC and urinal.

From the central courtyard there are 2 sets of double french doors which lead into the formal dining room with built in open-fire, decorative tiles floors, beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls. A doorway leads into the extensive contemporary style kitchen with open shelving, double sinks, hob with extractor, plumbing for dishwasher, and space for a large American style fridge freezer and plenty of additional shelving. The floors are also decorated with reclaimed Moorish style tiles. Windows on both sides flood the space with light whilst a door leads out into the central patio. Also on the ground floor is an extensive storage room or potential 4th bedroom.

Stairs from the patio lead up the the first floor accommodation which comprises of the master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite bathroom with wood effect porcelain tiles, bath, separate built-in shower, basin and WC. The 2nd bedroom which is on a split level currently used as a music studio with triple glazed doors and floating acoustic floor is also on this floor. This could be separated to create 2 bedrooms rather than one large room as both levels have separate access to the stairs and central patio.

Also on this level is the first of several private terraces. This one takes an ´L´shaped form, half open to the sunshine and the other covered to provide dappled shade and a retreat from the sun. This area is a wonderful outdoor dining and entertaining space.

Finally, stairs lead up to the magnificent roof terraces offering views accross the surrounding countryside, back towards the old town and into the central patio area.

The deep stone walls and new thermal roof insulation help maintain a cool interior during the summer and retain warmth during the short winter.

Overall, this property is a superb example of what a traditional style patio house represents, embracing its history whilst offering exceptional lifestyle, completed to a very high standard to ensure year round enjoyment both inside and out.
