Simply stunning and beautifully presented Moorish style villa situated within the Sierra Cabrera mountain range, where a few parts of Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade were filmed and with stunning far reaching views towards the sea, the snow-capped Sierra Nevada and even as far as Granada.
Sierra Cabrera is a nature reserve for its fauna and flora and is also a nesting area for eagles. In a fold of the mountain range is another curiosity, the village 'Sierra Cabrera'. A small colony of different nationalities that was founded in 1985 by the eccentric British architect Peter Grosscurth. He had a vision of rejuvenating the entire region of Cabrera; an area inhabited since the Neolithic and with architectural remains that include old high walls, crenelated towers and other buildings of authentic Arabic style.
The village of the Sierra Cabrera was his brainchild. Although he died in 1993, the area was further developed in full respect of his original vision. Every building, from the smallest house to the perched palace, was designed in a distinctive Moorish style - with mosaic domes and facades painted in terracotta colour. It is one of those places in the world where time ceases to exist. Nature is intact, the houses are unreal charming, and there is an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. You feel that this is a village of great dreams and passion for a place.
The house is designed for this specific location: on and against a rock above the village with a breathtaking views towards the sea and the valley.

Ground floor: main entrance and a garage. The entrance runs through the tower where the stairs and lift are located. The lift connects the ground floor with the living areas on the 4th and top floor. There is also a swimming pool in the central courtyard and sunny and covered terraces, on different levels around the house. On the terrace above the pool, there are 2 old cannons that stately guard the building. The pool has an outdoor shower and a WC. From the courtyard, there is access to the office with fireplace, now the 4th bedroom.

The kitchen leads to the dining room which is separated by a sliding door that disappears into the wall. The dining room, also equipped with a fireplace, has direct access to the southern terrace. The living room is an 'open space' but is separated by the specific shape of the rooms and the different ceilings. Between the living room and the dining room there are stairs leading to a guest WC, the guest bedrooms and the galleries. Under a dome is the sitting area of the living room. This comes from one side to the large courtyard and the other on the terrace with a view of the sea. There is a large fireplace that dominates the space.
