This is an unusual property which was constructed from an imported American system , from the Deltec company, who specialise in circular timber framed houses.
Our house was erected on substantial reinforced concrete foundations and blockwork sub walls to create TWO SEPARATE and distinct homes, the main circular house and an adjacent annexe , which currently is rented out as a holiday rental with good percentage annual occupation figures and corresponding excellent revenues.

The design was orientated particularly to take full advantage of the simply unbeatable view of the Lake Vinuela directly in front , some 500metres distant, and Mount Maroma beyond across the Lake
One never tires of the view as it changes regularly according to the time of day and season, occasionally even with snow caps on the mountain.

The ANNEXE- holiday rental- is offered "as is" complete with all fixtures and fittings ready for future rental guests (excluding linen and towels).
The total floor area of the annexe is some 65 square metres and offers visitors (or extended family) fully fitted out kitchen with all appliances, washing machine, dishwasher,fridge/freezer, oven, microwave and ceramic hob with extractor above.. Ample storage cupboards and granite worktop with tiled surround, plus additional space for the dining table with 6 chairs.
The kitchen is to the rear of the main salon which affords comfortable seating for up to 6 persons on 2no 3 seater sofa beds which offer sleeping facilities for extra guests. There is also an Ikea storage unit, coffee table, TV & table lamps .
The sitting room faces the lake and mountain and the swimming pool in front of the annexe, which has its own ample and private terrace, part of which is shaded under the roof overhang.
UK TV programmes are available via the internet service but subject to taking out an individual contract with the internet providers, otherwise Spanish TV is available via the existing antenna.
There are two bedrooms, one double and one with twin single beds, each with wardrobes and bedside tables.
Finally there is one adjoining full bathroom with bath (Shower over),hand basin and WC situated between the bedrooms and an additional wet room with shower, hand basin and WC adjacent to the front entrance hall.
The annexe has its own electric water heater and air conditioning in the bedrooms and main living area which offer both heat and cooling.
The main advantage of the American design is the high level of insulation which keeps the ambient temperature within the house to comfortable level with minimum energy input both in the summer and winter.

The MAIN HOUSE- The layout is somewhat unusual in that the kitchen and living room is on the upper levels. This enables the occupiers to enjoy the wonderful lake view from all aspects whilst the sleeping facilities are on the lower level.
Entry into the lobby via the front door also leads through a separate door to a small enclosed private garden area with a lemon tree that seems to provide fruit nearly all year around.
The ground floor hallway leads to the second bedroom , with A/C, an adjacent shower room with WC, and onto the master bedroom, with A/C, which has a small walk through dressing room (individual water heater) leading to the en suite bathroom with shower, twin vanitory unit , bidet and WC.
An external door leads into another enclosed garden area with yet another lemon tree and many shrubs and plants around the border again with a shaded sitting area.
Similarly leading directly from the front entrance lobby is a half flight of stairs up to the semi circular sitting room, some 11.0metres x 4.5metres maximum, with A/C and with 4 very large picture windows taking advantage of the views beyond. The circular design also means that the ceilings are higher than normal designs and give the whole area a feeling of spaciousness.
There is an elevated terrace accessed via patio doors outside the sitting room with partly roofed section over to offer shade.
A further half flight of stairs lead to a dining area and the fully fitted kitchen, with large american styled fridge freezer, oven , ceramic hob and dishwasher. Double corner sink, ample cupboards and granite worktops including a small area to the front overlooking the sitting room below which has been used as a two seater breakfast bar.
Behind the kitchen there is another corridor leading to a third single bedroom, dry store goods cupboards and utility area with WC , hand basin and refuse bins.
All areas are adequately catered for with electrical sockets and light fixtures.
Externally, there is a separate garage incorporating a small utility area with washing machine and WC, plus additional parking areas nearby.
There are 2 separate water depositos , storing 7000 litres of water to service the external pressure pump within the garage which provides good water pressure to all supply points as the local mains supply does at times not maintain a consistent pressure.
Adjacent to the swimming pool is a small pump room with filtration system for the pool , and a covered area with gas BBQ and shaded seating. The roof of this structure is covered with tubing through which the return water to the pool from the filtration system gains heating from the sun and helps to maintain a comfortable temperature in the pool to extend the swimming season.
The elliptical fibreglass swimming pool is approximately 10m x 4.5m varying from 1.1m to 1.8m depth. Around the shallower end of the pool is a wide shelf being only some 500mm deep which is ideal for younger inexperienced swimmers to gain confidence before plunging into the deeper parts. The surrounding paved area is ideal for relaxing in the sun.
The remainder of the plot, totalling nearly 6000 sq metres, is dotted with many olive trees, grasses,yuccas, and many other plants, and is fully fenced and gated.
Waste effluents are dealt with in a regulation biological tank away from the house.
3 phase electrical supply to the property prevents the more common problems of fuses tripping when too many appliances are switched on at the same time.
Currently our internet service provider supplies good WIFI reception of 12mB and can be increased subject to additional monthly subscriptions.
