Cuevas Nevada Huéscar
This beautiful property includes a 2-bedroom main cave, 1-bedroom cave apartment, double carport, two unreformed caves, and patios and garden terraces that offer expansive views of the town of Huéscar and surrounding countryside. The entire property has been carefully designed, skillfully built and impeccably maintained by the current owners. Every effort has been made to create a home that is both esthetically pleasing and practical.
The property sits on a 1.900 sqm plot of land on top of a ridge, faces south-west and is gated and entirely fenced. You enter a wide driveway with a recently planted orchard on the left and a 2-car carport with a large, sunny workshop on the right. The workshop Is crafted with ample shelving and a wood plank ceiling. Drain pipes funnel rainwater from the roof into a cistern. A decorative solid steel bar gate leads from the entrance patio to the main patio. The main patio garden is planted with trees and cacti and inset with concrete tile walkways. A table and benches are positioned at the far end for the best views of the valley and the mountains beyond. Fruit trees include apricot, plum, almond, olive, fig, persimmon and quince.
The vast outdoor sitting area is composed of five sections: three shaded and two unshaded. Three sitting areas provide multiple spaces for social gathering or private space. The middle sitting area is fitted with dog gates and two spacious dog houses. The walls of the patio are decorated with a delicate ribbon of colored glass. A firewood storage area is located along the outer wall of the workshop. From the main patio, an anti-slip pathway takes you to the lower level where you have a vegetable garden and two unreformed caves with a patio. A staircase takes you up to an orchard of olive trees, grape vines and a large almond tree that produces masses of almonds. The patios provide gorgeous sunset vistas over the town of Huéscar and the 16th century cathedral lit up at night.
The front entrance of the main cave is through wood-frame French doors into the dining/living room built deep into the mountain. The four panels of glass doors make this stunning space into a peaceful light-filled oasis. This room has a formal dining area with built-in bar at the front, and at the back is a raised sitting area with arched shelves and wood stove. The floors are a distinctive Spanish tile. Along the right side of the living room you pass by an entrance closet then up a few steps into a hallway/laundry room, then you enter the beautifully appointed, tiled kitchen, with lots of countertop and cabinet space.
