La Heredia, Benahavís
Positioned proudly at the top of the award winning La Heredia, and located right at the heart of the community, is this wonderful 3 bedroom townhouse. The property was built in 1997 but has received numerous upgrades over the years. The design is perfectly orientated to capture the expansive views across the coast line, including views of the famous Los Arqueros Golf Course, The Rock of Gibraltar and even Africa on a clear day. The house uses traditional Spanish materials, emphasising on the building's architecture and reflects the qualities of the village and its surrounding environment. The hand painted wrought iron and the terracotta floors that are found throughout the property provide an appropriate reference to the history of Spanish architecture and design.
The house is approached along a quiet street that connects the two communities of La Heredia and El Madroñal, which is an exclusive estate comprising of luxurious villas. The scale of the building has been cleverly disguised by the road. Due to its position on the mountain side the lower level cannot be seen from the road.

Located on the other side of the stair case is a brand new kitchen/diner with Bosch appliances and pantry at the back . On top of all of this you also have guest toilet, laundry room and a storage room on this level. The storage room has been equipped with air conditioning also which makes it a great multi-purpose space. The current owners have designed it so that it is ideal for a bodega and has a beautiful wrought iron door for the entrance.
Outside, and possibly the best space in the house, is the main terrace. The terrace has been separated into 2 areas, pool/sunbathing area, dining/lounging. You have the option of both covered and uncovered terracing.The pool has been fitted with a machine that creates a current for you to swim against, this is great if you are very keen on keeping up your fitness levels.
