Outstanding 16th century house in Albaicin, Granada
Exceptional 16th century property in the heart of historic Albaicin. The traditional house, once inhabited by the nobility, was restored with high quality materials 8 years ago maintaining the style and many old elements like the wood-beam ceilings, marble columns and their capitals, thick doors…
The reform was undertaken fulfilling the building requirements of the Unesco for the area, which form part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for example those concerning underground hidden cables and pipes.
The Arabic-style property surrounds a traditional style patio with cobbled floor and a fountain. Outdoors there is also a swimming pool, currently used as an Arab pond like those in Alhambra.
