A rare opportunity to purchase a stunning and unique property with 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a great hall, private swimming pool, stables and menage all set set in 9 hectares of private vineyards in an elevated position only 10 minutes drive from the nearest beach.

This 18th century country estate is located in the ´sherry triangle´ of El Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez de a Frontera and Sanlucar de Barrameda. the property is accessed by almost 1km of private drive, offers full privacy and has wonderful 360 degree panoramic views. Although a country estate, the property is only 3 minutes drive away from the Las Dunas shopping centre and 10 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Chipiona and El Puerto de Santa Maria. Jerez airport is 25 minutes away, Seville just over 1 hour and Malaga just over 2 hours.

The vineyard grows the Palomino grape on the famous white Albariza soil. The grapes on the estate are consistently ranked a the top of the wine growers in the area and were used in the award winning ´Mira La Mar´sherry. As well as the Palomino grape, a half hectare has been put to red grape (Cabernet, Merlot and Tempranillo) to produce a red wine for the house.

The main house with the features of a castle (961sqm) is built around a glazed in large central courtyard complete with an ancient Aljibe in centre (Moorish well - the water is used solely for the garden as the house has a mains water supply).

Many original features have been carefully restored or re-used such as the beamed ceilings complete with Bovedas (curved ceilings), solid wood windows and doors with decorative shutters, stone floors and cool archways.

This property has 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms including 2 suites complete with impressive towers with spiral staircases leading to the private terraces from which to take in the views. The 3rd and 4th bedrooms share a communal living room. There s a large country-style kitchen which in addition to the fitted units, open shelving and quality worktops, also has a traditional wood burning pizza oven and ample space for a long breakfast table. There is also a 2nd smaller kitchen used by the housekeeper which also makes a perfect utility room too.

The main living room is light and airy with direct access to the garden and wonderful views over the vineyard. For special occasions such as Christmas and celebrations the external function room or ´great hall´(122sqm) comes into it´s own. This at one time was the bodega where sherry was made and some of the original barrels are still stored there. The previous owners utilised the roof of the great hall as a helipad. The double height space with raised area used for dining next to the open fireplace is the ideal space to entertain - the acoustics of such a space lend themselves to live music - or a perfect place to enjoy the arts.

The stables have been sympathetically converted to offices but can easily be changed back if preferred. There is also a menage for riding located next to the stables.

There is a well maintained mature garden with beautiful old olive trees, an orchard and a vegetable garden. The decorative stone arches frame the stunning views which can be enjoyed from every aspect of the property. An impressive swimming pool with beach entry and a depth of 3 meters for diving gives welcome relief from the warm Spanish sunshine.

Although a country property, this house is equipped with all things necessary for modern day living such as mains water and electricity, central heating and air conditioning, telephone and WIFI plus inviting wood burning stoves in some of the rooms. Currently, a separate guesthouse is nearing completion.

This wonderful property would make a superb family home, holiday retreat or offers great opportunity for business such as a boutique guest house for wine connoisseurs, equitation centre or host for celebratory events such as weddings and special occasions. The possibilities are endless.
