Exceptional house and cave dwelling for sale with view of the Alhambra in Sacromonte, Granada
Exceptional house with adjoining cave dwelling in the historic neighbourhood of Sacromonte.
This excellent new property affords stunning views of the Alhambra palace against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains. This is the view famously described by former US president Bill Clinton - who has visited the area several times - as "The most beautiful sunset in the world".
The main two storeys house has a surface of 116 sq m. It consists of four spacious and well-lit bedrooms with large windows, spacious living room, fully equipped modern style kitchen and bathroom.
There is a 220 sq m cave house adjacent with 11 rooms. This traditional type of building introduced by the Arabs in the eighth century is still nowadays very attractive, convenient and comfortable. One of the reasons houses of this kind are so popular is that they maintain a steady temperature of around 15-20 degrees centigrade year round without heating or air-conditioning of any kind. In the winter, the rooms are comfortably warm, while in the height of the summer they remain comfortably cool.
In the upper part of the property there is a very special space, which comprises several large terraces on three different levels which comes up to 350 sq m with stunning panoramic views of the Alhambra. There are also two patios, one of 36 sq m and other of 10 sq m.
4 bed, 1 bath
Neighborhood:The property is located between Sacromonte and Albaicin, typical historic old quarters of Granada, which form part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area, famed for its cave dwellings rises on a hill opposite the Alhambra and is fascinating labyrinth of narrow, cobble-stone alleys and whitewashed houses.
