Mojácar is a beautiful and historic Arab village situated on the top of the hill, in the southeast corner of Andalucia, Spain, overlooking the brilliant Mediterranean. With its labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets and ancient Arabic dwellings, a fine selection of restaurants, wineries, cafés and shops, it has a fascinating blend of the old and the modern, and is known as the Enchantment Corner.
A unique opportunity has arisen to acquire a magnificent 120,000 m2 estate with unrivalled 360º views over the Mediterranean, the surrounding hillsides and the distant views of the village of Mojácar. The land is planted with palm trees and an abundance of tropical plants, providing its owners with the tranquillity and security so often desired.
The estate is situated in Andalusia, in the province of Almeria, in the south-east of Spain, within a conservation area in which the construction of new buildings is no longer permitted. It borders the municipality of the historic and picturesque Villa Blanca de Mojácar, where the sun shines 320 days a year.
The main residence, a 650 m2 villa, is located in the centre of a 2,500 m2 plateau at a height of 100 metres above sea level, with sandy coves on both sides. Built on two levels, the Villa and Finca was designed and supervised by one of the country’s leading international architects, who has taken advantage of the elevated position to offer its owners panoramic views. Designed to capture the Hispanic-Moorish traditions of the province, it is both externally and internally, extremely attractive and beautifully proportioned.
The length of the villa faces southeast and the living room and dining room, and its exterior terraces face miles of coastline and a vast expanse of sea. The south side of the Villa is shaded by large palm trees on sunny days and illuminated at dusk.
Access to the front of the Villa is through a large stone terrace with a cactus garden that reaches up to the walled terrace. This garden has in its interior an old secular olive tree.
Access to the finca is via a beach road leading to the private 420 metre asphalted road through automatic electric gates, ensuring total privacy and security. The Villa is very close to the beaches of Mojácar, the village and all the services offered by the area.
A short distance from the village of Mojácar is the old fishing port of Garrucha and the largest village of Vera. Almeria, the capital of the province, is less than an hour’s drive away, Granada is less than three hours away and Almeria airport is about 50 minutes away.
The Villa is built on two levels. The garage is buried and has enough space to house the automatic cleaning and filtration plant for the supply of sanitary water, the swimming pool and the water pressure system.
The impressive access to the property gives access to the main entrance via a 500 square metre stone terrace and cactus gardens. A few shallow steps lead to the main doors and to the 30 square metre rectangular hall. The foyer has a guest toilet and guest toilet. To the right of the hall is a door giving access to the service wing containing the 28 square meters fully furnished and equipped with an expensive breakfast room with pantry. This wing also contains the staff bedroom suite, a large laundry and a drying room. A staircase leads to the garage. To the left of the hallway is another door leading to the magnificent 45 square metre dining room adjacent to the 75 square metre living room. The living room has a Tuscan stone fireplace with a large wood stove assisted by fans, and the dining room has a black marble inlay motif with Rosa Brújula inlay in its centre from which the Villa derives its name. Both rooms have black and white inlaid marble floors. Large sliding windows abound and French doors open onto a large terrace facing south-east, giving the rooms a luminous and airy atmosphere.
The terraces surrounding the Villa overlook the sea, offering panoramic views of the coast, mountains and distant villages.
The 120 m2 swimming pool is enclosed in a Moorish style courtyard. The pool is surrounded by a covered courtyard of 285 m2 of unpolished white marble. The pool is made of blue ceramic tiles and has an inlaid mosaic of two mythical seahorses.
The courtyard is partially covered. The roof, formed by old tiles from Sante Fe, in the province of Granada, is supported by 30 marble columns. In the courtyard near the swimming pool, there is a large dressing room totally tiled with showers.
The Villa has three suites with fitted wardrobes and full bathrooms. All suites have direct access to the pool area, terraces and gardens. The accommodation on the first floor consists of a 42 square metre billiard room, or music room, with an outside terrace of 70 square metres allowing unbeatable views. The room has a separate access to the terrace on the ground floor. The master suite consists of a 42 m2 living/bedroom with French sliding doors leading to three open terraces. The bathroom en suite is perfectly equipped with Portuguese pink marble. The villa is tastefully furnished and in a manner consistent with its high quality.
All the windows of the villa are made of gold anodized aluminium manufactured by Technal. The electricity supply to the finca is provided by the local electricity company. The farm has sufficient water with its own supply through two deep wells of 110 meters and 145 meters. These wells produce abundant water for domestic use, for the swimming pool, and irrigation system for the gardens.
There is a separate two bedroom villa on the estate for the resident caretaker, consisting of living room, two bedrooms, one bathroom, two terraces, double garage, and a large workshop.
