The property is in an excellent location in the traditional white village of Canillas De Albaida, within walking distance of all the local amenities. There are 3 different entrances; via the main door, from an upper street leading to steps down to the swimming pool, and also via the utility/pool room from a lower street. Parking is close by and the house can be accessed for loading and unloading via the lower street.

The property has a number of wonderful outside spaces. The walled swimming pool terrace has plenty of space for sunbeds, table and chairs for outside dining and has a part open/part covered terrace (5.0m x 3.2m) with built in seating and a barbeque. There are flower beds (on an irrigation system) with mature plants and an impressive large pink bougainvillea. The pool (5.5m x 2.7m) has corner steps and is tiled with traditional blue pool tiles.

Poolside shade is provided by a new, retractable awning and there is also a wc with Andalucian floor tiles and feature bowl style wash basin.

A secondary entrance from the street provides independent access to the pool area and also to the studio apartment.

Additionally, there is a tranquil, private Moorish-style terrace (5.0m x 3.5m) accessed from the dining room. It is part shaded with fixed seating, a free-standing mosaic-tiled fountain and a small storeroom.

The generous roof terrace (6.1m x 3.1m) offers another outside area to relax and enjoy the beautiful Andalucian sun. From here there are breathtaking sea and countryside views.


The main entrance opens up into a reception hall (3.2m x 2.5m) which is where the ambience is set, and it becomes apparent that this is a very special and unique property. The terracotta floor tiles and rustic beam ceilings are echoed throughout the building, with characterful nooks and crannies perfectly showing off the many original artefacts.

From the reception area steps lead up to:

* Double bedroom 1 (3.2m x 3.1m) with feature wardrobe area and
* En-suite bathroom (2.2m x 3.1m) with bath, distinctive vanity unit with inset basin and shelving

Also steps take you down to the dining room (3.5m x 3.2m) where a door leads out to a stepped access and the part open/part covered private Moorish-style terrace. A doorway off the dining room takes you through to the rustic style kitchen (3.5m x 2.2m) with white painted wooden doors and tiled worktops.

From the spacious reception hall an arch leads through to a second reception area (3.2m x 2.7m) with a lovely original fireplace. This in turn leads through to a cosy little bar (2.5m x 1.6m) which could easily be adapted into a small study area. An antique door leads to a few steps that take you into the remarkable lounge (5.6m x 4.9m) where again we find an original fireplace with a huge free standing wood burning stove and a beautiful beamed ceiling.

From the second reception area a hallway (2.5m x 1.6m) leads to the pool area and feature stairs up to the first floor where you find:

* A substantial and distinctive double bedroom 2 (5.7m x 3.2m) with sloped beamed ceiling, stepped access to the roof terrace and
* En-suite bathroom (2.5m x 2.4m) with shower, built in vanity unit with inset basin, very large built-in wardrobe and inset display shelves

From the pool terrace, steps lead down to the utility and pool room (5m x 3.0m) also housing a washing machine and tumble dryer. From here the lower street can be accessed for a gentle walk to the village centre.


A beautifully renovated separate studio apartment, with Andalucian floor tiles, beamed ceilings and a rustic kitchen to match the overall style of the property. The living space consists of:

* Studio apartment (5.3m x 3.5m) including kitchen area with fridge
* Bathroom (2.6m x 2.0m) with full-size bath, vanity unit with inset basin, sloped beamed ceiling and striking Andalucian floor tiles

From the studio there is easy access to the pool terrace garden, offering an ideal opportunity to rent the studio with use of the pool - a very attractive option for people looking for a holiday in a traditional, white mountain village, adjacent to the renowned National Park for walking etc.
This is a superb character property with desirable one-off features and should be viewed without delay.

At Sunset Properties Spain, our company ethos is all about customer service. We offer a friendly, reliable and professional service where we guide our buyers through the whole process from beginning to end. We never pressurise anyone into buying anything and we never abandon anyone one they have bought a property - once a client always a client.

Our comprehensive after sales service is very important to us. We know how hard it is to deal with the practicalities of setting up a new home in a foreign country where everything seems to be done differently from the systems we are used to. If you have bought a holiday home then you may not be here in Spain for much of the time and you will need a reliable source of advice and practical help. This is something we pride ourselves on and, over the years, we have dealt with all sorts of requests from clients who have bought a property through us weeks, months or even years after completion.

Our after sales service includes:
* Arranging for the connection of a telephone (where possible)
* Arranging a broadband internet connection (where possible)
* Registration with the local town hall - "empadriamento"
* Assistance with the opening and operating of a bank account
* Assistance with the opening of a post office box if your house is located out of the town
* Assistance with the transfer of the gas contract or arranging a new one
* Assistance in finding competitive house insurance
* Help in finding reliable builders and tradesmen
* Anything else you can think of!

About Sunset Properties Spain, Malaga

Welcome to Sunset Properties Spain.
The company was started in 2004 by Denise Hill who had already had three years experience in the real estate business in Competa. Sunset Properties covers the Axarquia region which is the area east of Málaga from Colmenar and Totalan in the west to Nerja and Frigiliana in the east, together with the many towns and white villages in-between. The ethos of the company is all about customer service and we like to think we make house buying and selling as worry free as possible for all our clients, both buyers and sellers. We're a highly professional team but we also enjoy what we do and like nothing better than getting to know you over a cup of coffee in the sunshine.
We know how daunting it can be to buy a new home in a foreign country, especially if it's your first experience of buying abroad and you're trying to manage it all from your home base. We've been there, we've done it and we have survived! We try never to forget what it felt like and will do our best to give you all the information you need about buying your home and about living in this area. Good communication is the key to reducing the stress for you. We make sure you are kept up-to-date on progress and always respond promptly to your phone calls and e-mails.

Our comprehensive after sales service is something we pride ourselves on; after all, our clients become our neighbours once the sale is made. It's nothing out of the ordinary for us to deal with calls about where to shop for light fittings, how to change a gas bottle or where to find a reliable plumber – sometimes weeks or months after the client has bought the property.
When you come to Competa, don't wander around the village trying to find us – we don't have an office but work from the internet. Experience tells us that most people who want to buy a house abroad usually begin their research on the internet. They identify the areas they are interested in and then check out the properties available in that area. At this stage we can start to help you via e-mail or by phone. We can talk to you about your requirements and your budget and then point you to the properties that might interest you.

Our property descriptions are comprehensive and include useful details like the size of all rooms, something most other agents don't provide. We also include lots of photographs because we think these are vital in helping you get a real idea of what a house is like. Having done the basic research you're ready to visit the area knowing that we'll only take you to see properties that meet your criteria – we know your time out here is often limited and you need to make the most of it (and leave time for a second or even third look at the one you fell in love with). Having said that, you are, of course, entitled to change your mind so you don't have to narrow down your options too much or too soon.
Give us a call and come to see us soon.
