Full description:

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac this peaceful property has most recently been a family home and in the past a very successful holiday let. There are 4 bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms, a balcony out on to the central courtyard. Two have their own private sitting area with fireplace, and one has a mezzanine floor that can sleep two extra children or be used as storage/a reading den

A lot of effort has gone into making this a light and airy home. Here you won't find any of the normal problems that other houses in Essaouira Medina have - there's no damp or dark corners and it's very easy to maintain.

On the ground floor there's a reception room with a fireplace, a courtyard which has a plunge pool and the kitchen/dining room, all done in traditional moroccan style.

The roof terrace is one of the main selling points. Always sunny and sheltered, this is an excellent spot to take breakfast or do a spot of gardening or at night to sit out and cook al-fresco with the excellent lighting (and weatherproof plug sockets everywhere if you want to use it as an extra room of the house). Or climb up into the crow's nest for excellent panoramic views of the town.

The house has been partially renovated to an excellent standard and I'm very hesitant to sell, as I lived in it as my full time home for four years. But personal circumstances have forced my hand and I've had to move back to the UK.

It would make an excellent investment for an AirBnB, especially with the number of bedrooms, you could even live in and make more than enough to live from renting it out. Optionally comes with an English+French speaking housekeeper to help with translation and working out what's what as well as potentially meeting guests etc. (Note that some houses in Morocco come with not-really-optional housekeepers, this one it's genuinely up to you). I can also leave contact details for painters/builders/electricians/handymen etc who I've found by trial and error (and gone through a number of bad ones before finding some who met my standards)

The house has 100Meg fibre optic internet and in general the bills and cost of living are pretty cheap.
