Stately property that belonged to the Ronda nobility

The property, built in 1900, is surrounded by almost nine hectares of olive groves and land. It was built as a rest residence for Carmen Abela, Countess of Guadalevín, and is located a few minutes by car from the historic center of Ronda. If there is something unique about this house, it is its gardens, which were designed by the renowned French landscape designer Jean-Claude Nicolas Forestier, author of the María Luisa Park in Seville and the gardens of the Casa del Rey Moro, in Ronda. The most significant element is a fountain, the work of the Spanish sculptor Enrique Marín Higuero. After the gardens you access the exterior porch, measuring more than 100 square meters, with a bar, swimming pool and rest area. The house, with a stately façade, is distributed over three floors. The original glass door gives access to the living room with fireplace which, in turn, leads to an Andalusian patio. There is also the dining room, with space for 16 people, and a furnished country-style kitchen. On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, all of them with their bathrooms and balconies that overlook the gardens. On the second floor of the house, sold by Engel & Völkers, there are three double bedrooms with sloping ceilings and wooden beams.
