WOW - the name says it all! When I come to properties of this INCREDIBLE CALIBER, it's hard to decide where to begin. THE FANTASTIC LOCATION; THE SPECTACULAR PANORAMIC VIEWS from its ELEVATED 2286M2 PLOT ATOP THE HILL overlooking Riogordo and the mountain ranges; the SPRAWLING BUILD covering 700M2 and incorporating BEAUTIFULLY ORNATE AND TRADITIONAL ANDALUSIAN ARCHITECTURE - just WOW. There's a lot to cover, so let's get started.
Spread out over 6 areas, the property consists of the main house, a second building comprising 1 large newly built apartment and miscellaneous space, a small service-staff apartment, a large storage building, a 'box' for horses/dogs, and a gym. According to military records, Wow existed from the years 1750. It is located in the foothills of the Cordillera Bética in a place called Magiaza 2km from the village of Riogordo which translated from Arabic of the time means "magical place" and is located in the Malaga region of Axarquia (Eastern zone of the Peninsula) .The area is spectacularly beautiful, with clean air and spring water. It was in construction and renovation for 10 years and the architecture is characteristic of the Malaga area with rondeña gate campera manual Moorish tiles and with an arrangement of spontaneous and varied roofing that makes it truly unique and beautiful.
The main house comprises of a main entrance hall, a very large and brand new, fully-fitted kitchen complete with 2 refigerators and a freezer, a living room covering 70m2, 5 bedrooms (with built-in wardrobes), 3 bathrooms, a 'purification room', a workshop, a large terrace surrounding the whole property, a built-in barbeque, a 60m2 swimming pool and 2 water storage tanks of 75,000m3.
The second building, originally used as a restaurant has been partially converted into an apartment, and the remaining space either has the possibility for conversion into 2 seperate apartments, 1 large apartment or to be used commercially as it is. It consists of a newly built professional kitchen, a large office, 2 inner warehouses, 1 staff W.C and shower, 2 public W.C's, a wash-zone, a banquet area with a fantastic cast iron fireplace and winebar, a large summer terrace sheltered under great wooden beams and floored with sandstone, quality restaurant equipment and a large outdoor bar with constructive characteristics of the Arab-Alfagai style, parking for 15 vehicles, a beautifully decorative exterior, a 300m garden perimeter of palm trees, laurel and granados, a 3,000 litre water deposit and several exquisite hand-crafted Moroccan tables.
The service-staff apartment consists of a heated room, a fully-fitted kitchen, and a bathroom. The large newly built studio apartment is housed in a full loft, featuring a kitchen, living room and bathroom, and has beds in the sofa. The storage building houses over 90m2, featuring a forced air renewal ventilation system and thermal insulation in the roof. The 'box' is a small building with two seperate areas either as stables for horses or a kennel for large dogs. The gym is a seperate, small area with a treadmill and a pre-installed television.
Other general details of the property: New construction began in 1990 and has continued in sections until the present day. Elements of the spontaneous and creative character of the typical Andalucian architecture and decor can be seen throughout the property. Rodena solid forged steel has been used in all the security bars on the windows, roffing and balconies. Throughout we find all solid stone flooring and solid wood joinery in the windows, doors, etc. The walls are 60-80cm thick with double-walls and inner-insulation, allowing for superior heat retention in the winter and reflection in the summer. The interior ceilings are coffered wooden beams. We have 3 different exterior decorative fireplaces.
Utilities: The entire property comes with fully functioning electricity and running water, internet and television. Additional energy is supplied by solar panels. We have 3 wood-burning fireplaces inside, a propane gas central heating system throughout (with iron-cast hot water circulation radiators) and hot & cold air-conditioning.
Exterior: the gardens have been expertely manicured, featuring various exotic and vibrant flowers, bushes and trees, etc. These are all accented by the tastefull dry stone walls incorporated into the landscapes design. We also have a 1000m2 automatically irrigated orchard (I hope you have a sweet tooth), a patio with orange & lemon trees leading onto the kitchen, a herb garden, a 500m2 chicken run (with a coop), a completely fenced and secure perimiter, very easy access and excellent agricultural capabilities for growing in general.
