Casa Cabritos is a detached barn conversion set in 4000 square meters (about 1.25 acres) of freehold land. There are 4 terraces all having olive trees, 3 of which have various fruit trees overlooking the valley and is approximately 150 meters from the centre of the village of Hinojares. There are no immediate neighbours so it is nice and peaceful.
The barn was fully renovated to an extremely high standard 12 years ago by local professional builders and tradesmen. Therefore all items such as windows, woodwork, electrics, plumbing, toilets, baths etc are no more than 12 years old.
This luxurious building is 65.5ft (20m) long and 29.5ft (9m) wide, not including all the terraces and the boiler room. Total build size of approximately 395m2.
It boasts an American style kitchen, spacious entrance hall and landing, separate lounge, study, 6/7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a cloakroom, air conditioning, a sauna, 6 person spa set in its own secluded area, a designated buoles court and a 8 x 4 m by 1.5 m deep pool with extensive shaded area, bar with fridge and sink, gas fire pit/BBQ, huge sun lounger with curtains and a pump/ changing room. There is a car port and a wood shed.
The external walls are some 20ins (50cm) thick with 5 cm of cavity wall insulation. The roof is fully insulated. This allows for a cool feeling in the summer and warm in the winter.
All of the external doors and windows are double glazed with integral shutters and fly screens. The ground floor windows are fitted with metal Rejas (typical Andalucían window bars). The lower floor has almost 10ft (3mt) ceiling height and the upper floor almost 9ft (2.7m) which gives the feeling of airy space.
Hot water is supplied by 2 large emersion tanks which are heated either by the oil fired central heating or electricity.
Water softener, 15 mbs Wi-Fi and surround sound in 3 rooms.
It is fully centrally heated with 2 additional wood burners.
