At first sight the property appears to be a typical, enlarged, whitewashed Cortijo, as typified by a jumble of roofing and outhouses being gradually swallowed up on most lines of sight, by green vegetation. In fact, it is a structure that has combined the style of modern Andalusian farmhouse form with innovative use of the multi level site with careful study of the prevailing sun and wind to achieve comfortable, energy efficient all year round living in a well greened atmosphere; this softens the potentially harsh effects of both.This 'upside down' format has the reception rooms enjoying the best available sea views from the first floor and the cooler bedrooms surrounding a ground level internal Patio. The owner of Calerica, who has lived and worked in many Levantine and Middle East States, evolved the design of this house by combining personal experience from his travels with the contours of the site, and at the same time retaining a well matured local profile by the use of salvaged traditional finishing's. The key to making the Damascene revival work in practice is careful study of both sun and prevailing wind patterns at differing times of the day and in all seasons.To the north of the house four original trees (three Algoroba and one Olive) have been retained in the perimeter, and to the south there is an inner row of flowering shrub and a mature/ seasonally aromatic Jasmine hedge.On the other side, by the road, a 20 year old pine tree row masks noise and excludes vision to totally hide the pool/barbecue buildings from the road. To the south the full size Tennis court is shielded by Australian evergreens to provide both a wind break and reduce sun disturbance when playing tennis.The Andalusian cortijo style is reinforced by the extensive use of salvaged railway sleepers, antique Rejas and recovered traditional wooden external entry doors which have been reinforced where required. The overall effect is to age the property, beyond its actual 25 years, and this is enhanced by the extensive use of both antique tiles and new hand cut tiles in traditional colours.The top entrance provides covered/external parking for 4/5 cars and two external entrances are situated at the end of an internal courtyard with a stone table. This area catches the afternoon sun and is used for winter al-fresco meals. The principal entrance serves the main drawing room, the summer living room and the study/snug. It also serves a store room, wood semi-basement and wine cellar.The second outside entry door leads into the kitchen, the dining room and the outside terrace, which is partially walled in to protect against the hottest midday sun. The dining room, which comfortably seats 12 is linked to the other reception rooms by the snug. It overlooks the pool on one side and the internal Patio on the other. Two staircases lead down to the six bedrooms grouped in three suites around the Patio, which is secured by two sets of iron gates which lead into the lower entrance and parking area. The largest suite (configured as a bedroom and separate study/TV room) with two bathrooms looks out onto the back garden with a mature vine, flowering cacti and a jasmine hedge. This suite enjoys strong air cooling created by the alignment of doors and windows. This sheltered end of the garden incorporates a vine sheltered gazebo.The second suite looks out on the other end of the rear garden and comprises one spacious bedroom, a porch that doubles as a walk in cupboard, a bathroom with Jacuzzi and a smaller bedroom suitable for two children.The third suite enjoys its own stair access with the principal bedroom overlooking the pool. The second bedroom, on the other side of a shared bathroom looks out onto the flowering shrubs. This suite also has a lower front door access to the ground floor patio, where there is a fountain to reinforce the oriental atmosphere.The pool area is private and not visible from the road and comprises a large barbecue area with outside kitchen to enable independent cooking. The area also contains two Male/Female Showers, Toilet and Basin units conveniently separate from the facilities in the house. This area leads both to a lower walled entrance with off road parking for another five cars as well as steps down to the full size Tennis Court. This terrace boasts a developing fruit area with Olive, Almond, Fig, Orange and Grapefruit in varying stages of maturity and productivity. This really is a unique opportunity.
