Riyafa is a wonderful home in the heart of Nueva Andalucia which has had just one owner since it was built in 2005. The apartment has been carefully improved over the past fifteen years to create what we believe is probably the nicest apartment in River Gardens.
A full renovation was carried out in 2020. The property features the most popular choice of cream marble flooring in all the rooms, except in the kitchen which has a practical wood floor.
The 2.8 Meter high ceilings are a unique feature that creates light and airy rooms with a real feeling of luxury.
The terrace is elevated 4 meters about the gardens and paths while the front entrance is at ground level; this works so well because it combines the privacy of a high level apartment without any of the disadvantages.
Riyafa has arguably the best outlook in River Gardens; it’s in a secluded and peaceful location, overlooking the river with a wide vista of mature evergreen trees. It’s completely shielded from the road and public areas like the main entrance and pool.
The terrace is south facing and it’s a corner plot so there’s sunshine from early morning until late in the evening.

On the right of the lounge diner is an arch with doors off to the two bedrooms and the guest bathroom.
The large second bedroom has a window onto the front terrace and can double as a great office.
The guest bathroom includes a bath/shower, toilet and bidet and a vanity unit with two large drawers for storage. There’s a built in utility area with a washing machine, dryer and further storage.
The master bedroom has a great view over the terrace and a large built in wardrobe with shelves and drawers.
The en suite master bathroom features bath/shower, toilet and bidet plus a heated towel rail. There’s a mirrored anti fog cabinet, a tower cabinet and vanity unit with two large drawers for storage.
The terrace that has been complete renovated with plenty of mains sockets and dimmers for the ceiling lights. There’s an outdoor tap and connections/mountings for a television.
The original built in planters and red brick tiles have been professionally removed and re-laid with contemporary cream ceramic tiles to complement the marble floors inside. This is one of the most popular conversions in River Gardens and totally transforms the terrace.
The terrace can be fully enclosed with the fitted awnings to convert it into another large living area that can be used throughout the year.
There’s a communal but private seating area to the right of the front entrance
Riyafa has easy wheelchair and disabled access, and the lift and stairs opposite the entrance take you directly to your storage unit with mains power and light and large floodlit parking area in the basement (available separately, price on request).
