Villa for Sale in Bedar, Almería
This immaculate villa is located just 4 minutes drive from Bedar village. It enjoys great views of the village itself and the surrounding countryside offering fantastic privacy to disconnect in your own home.
The 188m2 property has been designed as a full time home by the owner with large rooms and a clever layout on a large plot of 10,116m2. Casa Lago was constructed in 2003 with attention to detail on orientation so, the property is built around a large central courtyard which is which a great place for entertaining and eating "al fresco".
Entry is via the North terrace to this courtyard, the guest bedrooms located on the West and East wings with the master bedroom South facing.
On entering the grounds of the property, rather than a door bell or gates at the driveway entrance, you are met by a large life size, fibre glass cow with a bell, (there is a story behind this which will be explained on appointment just remember "Moo-Bien"). The plot offers substantial parking for up to 10 cars, storage, twin car port and landscaped gardens with mature planting for easy maintenance with irrigation water system.
There is a covered terrace to the west wing of the house for BBQ and dining with fabulous views of Bedar Village that is impressive day or night time. Next to the bespoke designed kitchen, this room is fully fitted with a gas range cooker and has the added benefit of a larder and utility area as well as plenty of room for a dining table and chairs.
Using the courtyard entrance, there is a Jacuzzi (included in the sale subject to final price agreement) and access via a spiral staircase to the solarium with great views of the surrounding countryside and presents stunning views over the valley, along the Sierra Cabrera mountains and views of Bedar village.
Entering the Villa into a wrap around hallway / corridor leading to a spacious living room with fireplace and double doors leading to a lovely light conservatory surrounded by large windows, again framing the fabulous views of the village. This conservatory has a lovely stone floor with a log burner in the corner and plenty of space for further lounge furniture. It remains very warm in the winter months without the use of the log burner and it could easily double up as a formal dining room if required. There are double doors leading from this room to the BBQ terrace, again with fabulous views.
Continuing on the west corridor to the left is the third bedroom currently used as a large dining room. This spacious room has high ceilings and is next to the conveniently located cloakroom. This as a bedroom has plenty of space to incorporate an en-suite bathroom with plumbing so close by. The kitchen previously mentioned makes up the remaining part of the west wing.

The master bedroom is very spacious with a large separate walk-in dressing room leading to the modern en-suite bathroom which is at the corner of the East and West wing. Outside this bedroom is a base structure which was used for a above ground swimming pool however there is a large amount of flat land around the property and many areas where a private pool would be suitable (permission would need to be applied for via the local town hall) .
