Cueva Malaika in Galera

Cueva Malaika is a stunning, unattached cave property with a garden and almond grove, situated on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Galera. The property is nestled in the hills surrounded by nature, beauty and peace, with 180° views of the dramatic badlands. Access is good and it’s a 15 minute walk into the village.

The current owners have installed a state of the art solar energy system that supplies the entire property. Mains electricity connection is also nearby, if desired. The outer walls and roof are fully insulated, and all windows are double glazed. The entire house and garden have been designed to require minimal maintenance. The property is on mains water.

There is a gated driveway and a carport that accommodates a large motorhome. The gravel driveway and garden area are fully fenced and planted with mature olives, roses and other flowering shrubs. The huge front patio has a bar room and wood shed. The sheltered side patio has an outdoor dining area and a delightful shaded lounge area under a grape vine arbour. An outdoor shower, ample cupboards and a large storage garage complete this beautiful outdoor space, which offers striking views of the mountains of La Sagra and Marmolances.

The cave house has an entrance porch, an open plan living/dining/kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, pantry, hall/office. The house is built on one level.

The front entrance has wrought iron and glass double doors with side panels. A pretty vestibule opens to the spacious, bright, open plan dining / living room with a large light tower, and a powerful Bronpi wood burner. To the right of the living room is a full shower room.

Left from the front door is a modern open plan kitchen with breakfast bar and a wide induction hob plus 2 gas burners, set into a Norwegian granite worktop. Beyond the kitchen is the pantry/utility room. The kitchen wall features a massive traditional clay wine vat. Below the vat, a sophisticated “wood-effect” gas fire is centrally located for quick, efficient home heating.

Straight back from the kitchen you enter a central hall with storage and office space. To the right is the charming master bedroom and then a second double bedroom that could also be a large dressing area or lounge, which leads to the gorgeous ensuite shower room with an earthenware vat feature and a light well above the stunning shower. Off the central hall to the left is another double bedroom leading to an adjoining smaller bedroom with a high window.

Beautifully built and impeccably maintained, this cave house features traditional Andalusian touches throughout, from bedside “table tops” dug into the rock, wood beams overhead, to the massive wine vats fitted into the cave walls. Most of the furniture is included, including some that are of exceptional quality.

Almond Grove and Shade Tunnel

The separate plot of land has 40+ almond trees. A large shade tunnel is fully screened and is great for growing berries and veggies. There are also white grapes, black grapes, and pomegranate, fig, plum, cherry and apple trees. The planted areas are separated into different irrigation zones and watering is set up remotely controlled via phone app.

Solar Electricity

The house has a high-spec off-grid solar electricity system consisting of:

9 X 250w solar panels

12 X 1320 AH 2v batteries

Victron MPPT 3KW inverter plus regulator

Victron BMV700 Monitor plus remote monitoring computer

The solar system has been designed to run all the usual standard appliances ( Oven, Kettle, TV, Fridge , Induction Hob , Electric Heater, Hairdryer, Electronics, Lights, etc) up to a maximum of 3KW at any one time.

For backup, the solar hot water heater and the cooking can be switched to gas. There is a freestanding “wood-effect” Global DRU gas fire for quick heating or backup heating.

The sellers have enjoyed zero electricity bills for six years and they are happy to guide the new owners in how to use the system optimally. Additional detailed information about the solar system, hot water tank and optional backup is available upon request.
