- Large front terrace plus large garden patio

Access is via a little path, past the picturesque neighbouring cottages, to the garden. The main house has a simply delightful terrace area, part covered, and used every day of the year, practically, as the outside living space, lending itself quite naturally to outdoor dining, relaxing and living in general. Next to it is the inviting little splash pool, with little waterfall feature and filter system, set in the rock and very picturesque!
The terrace patio area has a barbecue, built-in seating, is adorned with many flowering potted plants and has ample space for tables and chairs, etc. It is very pretty and very peaceful and private.
From here, original double wooden doors lead into a hallway/dining room and further double doors lead into the living room next door, (6 x 3m) with a standalone cast iron woodburner and very pretty original windows to the front and rear of the room. The dining room has an original corner fireplace and all rooms have beamed ceilings with cane infill in true traditional style. From the dining room an opening in the thick wall and one step up (with beautiful river pebble floor detail including a decorative butterfly motif), leads into the rustic style kitchen (4.5 x 2m approx) with beamed ceiling and a back door to a small outdoor area with a solid piece of interesting rock!
At the far end of the living room is a door and one step up to a room currently used as a dressing room but it could be a reading or games room, or even an extra sleeping space, and beyond is the bathroom with a large walk-in shower.
From the living room stairs lead up to a corridor. To the right, bedroom 1 (3 x 3m) with a beautiful window, beams and sloping ceiling. Along the corridor are bedroom 2 (4 x 2m) with built-in wardrobe and pretty windows and bedroom 3 (4 x 3m) with dual aspect windows.
Outside, at the far end of the patio terrace is a good sized storeroom, which could potentially be incorporated into the main house.
From the terrace, there is a a short path leading to the main garden terrace, a delightful space, ideal for all types of outdoor living activities, and with natural shade from various trees. It is a beautiful, 'nostalgic' area and completely surrounded by avocado orchards. Here, we find the entrance to the guest casita, with an original bread oven just by the front door. Inside, immediately to the left is the shower room and one step down leads into the rustic style kitchen. This area has beamed ceilings and varnished cane infill, and a wooden breakfast bar with high stools. An opening leads down into the living room, again, a beautiful room bursting with character. From here, a spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom above the living room.
The word that springs to mind with Casa Adelina is 'enchanting'! The building is 156m2 (bear in mind the walls are 1m thick in places!) and the plot around the house is an additional 200m2.
