A rare opportunity to purchase one of Southern Spains Great Houses.
The Mena House is one of the last remaining great houses in the region. Almost all other large homes along the coast have been eaten up by encroaching residential developments losing their exclusivity.
The Mena House is on the highest hill on the beach side of the road overlooking the Mediterranean, protected on all sides by thousands of square meters of gently sloping protected parkland that will never see any development.
Architecturally, the Mena House is completely unique. Designed by renowned British / Californian architect Geoffrey Challan, The Mena House was designed and built to connect the mountain environment and the sea making the most of the 322 days of sunshine enjoyed annually in Almería Province. Light is a huge feature of the design and even the low winter sun reaches well into every room through specially designed windows and openings. This incredibly works as a system for providing effective passive solar heat and light. With the summer sun 18° higher in the sky the house is designed so that the suns rays are kept short of rooms providing shade. Special openings also bring the fresh sea breeze to living spaces.
A series of private terraces surrounding the house. These provide the choice between shade or full sun. This is an important consideration when looking to dine in comfort in the hot summer months.
Mena’s unique position offers a 360 view of the Mediterranean coast and the mountains of Sierra Cabrera. The site borders a National Park and the prestigious 18 new golf holes in Las Macenas.
The location of this property is one which can simply not be beaten and no new build will ever enjoy such a location. This is simply one of a kind. From the house, you enjoy total isolation with the convenience of Mojacar minutes away by car.
