Substantial Country Villa in the Ourika Valley this beautiful country house was carefully designed and built by it’s current owner, in a quiet rural position in the Ourika Valley at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. It would be an ideal position for a real change of life, an escape from the urban jungle in Europe or North America. The fertile land and water supply should allow an enthusiastic owner to be self sufficient with a great vegetable garden and prodigious supplies of olives and fruit. At the same time you’ve the practicality of the nearby international airport at Marrakech – and a time zone that is GMT – with the stability and ever impressive infrastructure of Morocco.
This Substantial Country Villa in the Ourika Valley stands on one side of a sizable plot of around 8800 square metres (2.17 acres), leaving possible potential for an additional dwelling. The gardens front a minor but surfaced public road, so there’s no dusty tracks to deal with.
If you can distract yourself from the hypnotising view of the mountains, you’ll find that the gardens have been planted with a variety of fruit and specimen trees, and that there’s a 12 metre by 6 metre swimming pool.
We understand from the owner that the well reaches 40 metres and there’s an electric pump and drip irrigation for the gardens, all controlled from a pump-house. There are around three hundred trees, including olives and citrus trees.
The entrance to the property is gated and flanked by two gatehouses, giving a staff bedroom on one side and a traditional hammam on the other.
The house is a very substantial building, with most of the accommodation on the ground floor and a nearly self contained apartment on the upper floor. It would be very easy – subject to the normal checks and permissions – to extend the accommodation on the upper floor, where there is currently a large terrace.
At present the accommodation is arranged with a large reception space, a fitted kitchen with an island unit, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. There are the same breathtaking views from the upper terraces.
This villa is a superb opportunity at 350000 euros for a real change of life, perhaps as a country guesthouse or perhaps as a bio farm! Call Mark now on 00212655446749 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org
