With glorious mountain views and a glimpse of the lake, the architect designed house stands in 2 acres of wild gardens, within a terraced orchard of olive, almond and fruit trees. It is situated halfway between Istan and Marbella, above the lake (Embalse de La Concepcion) and below the Istan road. The private and tranquil La Palmera is reached via the scenic winding mountain road and an unmade private road. A steep drive brings you into the wonderfully untamed garden, bright with wild flowers in spring and home to 200 olive, fruit and almond trees. Informal footpaths twist and turn through the grounds to the private pool with poolside bar. Some 100 metres from the cottage, a track from the house leads to the shore of the lake, which is visible from the bedrooms and higher terraces. Inside, La Palmera has a country style kitchen/dining room with access to one of the outside terraces for outside dining, a sitting room with an open fire and large French windows, which lead out onto the south facing terrace. A large shower room is also provided on this floor. A spiral staircase leads to the upper floor with three bathrooms tastefully furnished in cool colours. The master bedroom has a double bed and en suite bathroom, and a full suite bathroom for the other two bedrooms, one twin, and one double. To the front and back of the house are large paved terraces. A few metres away in the garden there is a guest house containing a fourth bedroom with two double bunk beds. The house has TV and is fully equipped for holiday rentals with no shared facilities.
