A unique property consisting of a beautifully restored two hundred year old mill set in a 3 acre oasis of tropical and Andalusian vegetation with a large swimming pool, vegetable garden and four other cottages, all surrounded by the moscatel vineyards of Manilva.
Conveniently located only 10 minutes from Sotogrande and 25 minutes from Marbella on the motorway, Molino del Duque was a working water mill until 45 years ago, belonging to the aristocratic Larios family (ancestors of the current owner). The sulphurous waters of the Roman baths nearby have irrigated its fertile riverbed soil for centuries.
The large 3-acre garden surrounds the property giving it a unique sense of tranquillity and serenity. Upon entering the main gate a driveway of 21 palm trees guide visitors along the side of the pool and gardens to the central patio and the main house and guesthouse.
Above the patio towers a 150-year-old araucaria tree which forms the centrepiece of the property.
The old mill, now the main house, is a beautifully decorated three-storey building comprising a large living room, TV room, a large dining room, kitchen, bathroom and washroom on the ground floor. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the top floor has master bedroom and bathroom.
Adjacent to the main house is the guesthouse with two bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. In addition there is a staff house with two bedrooms and a bathroom, and two cottages can easily be converted into 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
The stunning garden comprises a large lawn area surrounded by sculpted vegetation and trees and featuring a beautiful vegetable garden with a gazebo, surrounded by lemon, grapefruit, avocado and fig trees giving off a spectacular combination of scents. The 18-metre swimming pool is surrounded by a variety of exotic flora; from Cuban royal palm trees to agaves and aloes, as well as orange and lemon trees. The pool area also features a large gazebo.
To the rear of the main house, and leading on to the summer patio, is a walkway of exotic plants ranging from caeca revoluta to bamboo. The summer patio is enclosed by the east wing of the main house and the west wing of the guesthouse and boasts a serene koi carp pool, a gorgeous location for tranquil al fresco dining.
