1844 – El Madroñal


This is a truly exquisite property, surrounded by the natural beauty of cork, oak and fruit trees, situated in the elegant gated estate of El Madroñal.  Attention to detail is the mantra of the designer who over a number of years has created this stunning home replete with locally salvaged wooden doors, lintels and stone floors, with Provencal style furnishings all bathed in light and a feeling of serenity.

This tasteful property is entered through large gates to the leafy front courtyard, from where one enters into the main house.  One is immediately enchanted by the high ceilinged entrance hall with fireplace and French doors leading to a shaded verdant internal courtyard which in turn leads through to the spacious dining room with fireplace and large French doors framing the terrace beyond.  This shaded terrace gives an additional al fresco living space , two dining areas and barbecue,  and overlooks the formal gardens and pool, an exercise in classic proportions.

Leading from the dining room, is a large inviting living room with fireplace, that in turn has a terrace with the most spectacular unspoilt views over the National Park mountains and out to the Mediterranean Sea.  The ground floor also has a tasteful cinema room with office annex, guest cloakroom and a large beautifully fitted kitchen with marble topped central island and Miele appliances, as well as a secondary kitchen and utility area.  There is also a delightful, ensuite guest bedroom on the ground floor.

A staircase to the right of the front entrance hall leads to a charming private “Chapel” style ensuite bedroom suite with vaulted ceilings, whilst a staircase to the left of the hallway leads on to another captivating bedroom suite with terrace.  This terrace then flows to the rest of the upper level, with a fabulous master suite, complete with study, two dressing rooms, three fireplaces and stylish, spacious ensuite bathroom.   This level houses a further uniquely conceived bedroom suite, all with their own particular style and charm. There is a separate staff accommodation in the form of a self-contained apartment with ample kitchen, sitting room ensuite shower room and terrace separate from the main house.   There is a car port for three cars and a double garage, small gym.

Santa Katerina combines a prestigious address with peacefulness and privacy, yet ease of access to local sports, particularly golf and riding, world class dining and shopping, airports in both Malaga and Gibraltar both less than 45 minutes.  This jewel of a property possesses such grace and charm: the attention to detail and the quality of build together with the attention to every detail, really has to be seen to be appreciated.
