Full description:

With a large traditional farmhouse on a huge estate in the hills overlooking the Guadalhorce Valley between the Andalucian pueblos of Pizarra and Estacion de Cartama, this cortijo enjoys stunning 360º views.
The main house, although in reasonable structural order, does require restoration.
Attached to the main house is a bakery with 2 original working, wood fuelled
bread ovens and to the rear of the property there is an enclosed area perfect for enhancement to create a traditional Andalucian style walled patio.
The current layout of the property offers 5 large bedrooms, large living area, kitchen,
bakery , covered stables and stable yard, a double garage with
shower room and a very stylish and comfortable 1 bedroom apartment which would provide immediate living facilities whilst reformation of the rest of the property is undertaken.
The apartment, with a spectacular wooden beamed cathedral ceiling throughout, is fully furnished and the kitchen area is fully equipped with fridge freezer, oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.
It also offers one double bedroom, hosting stunning South facing views, a spacious living-dining area and a bathroom.
The former granary, directly below the apartment has been converted into a double garage, which includes a shower room and also has access to the front terrace.
The total build size of this property comprises of 300m2 of house and apartment,
plus 124 m2 of attached covered stabling included on the" Escritura" or title deed and ripe for development .
The Front terrace extends across the full width of the house and hosts absolutely breath taking views over the Guadalhorce Valley , enjoying sunshine from dawn until dusk!
The estate extends to 288,000 m2 (29 Hectares) with 350 olive trees , numerous almond trees, carob trees and fig trees.
The land slopes down gently, bordered by a road(track) on one side and by protected land
with natural caves in the rock formation on the other side. This provides the property with total privacy .
Recent enquiries at the local municipal planning offices indicated that the property could be reformed either as a large private home or could be exploited for rural tourism. It could be converted to provide a holistic retreat,conference centre, camping, cookery school etc.
There is an abundance of land for cultivation of organic produce.
It could also be developed into an equestrian centre or for rearing livestock. It enjoys direct access onto a vast network of country tracks which also offers the opportunity of offering walking, orienteering, birdwatching or landscape painting holidays . The options would seem to be almost limitless!
Although the property offers traditional charm in a rural location it does benefit from excellent access by a well maintained quiet country road and also benefits from the comfort and convenience of mains services such as mains water and electricity and internet connection.
It also enjoys a private water supply from two wells.
The Guadalhorce valley has the benefit of an excellent micro climate.
Local towns and villages are still predominantly Spanish, but the area is becoming popular with residents from the UK and other EU countries who prefer to live in "Spain" rather than "on the Costa". It is a developing and popular area for rural tourism, with easy access to
beaches, golf courses, skiing, the lakes for walking, climbing and birdwatching, horse
riding, and the cultural centres of Malaga, Granada, Cordoba and Seville.
This property does currently have a mortgage remaining of around 100.000,00€ which could possibly be taken over by a new owner, subject to status. If the mortgage is not required then it will be paid off and cancelled by the bank to coincide with the completion of the sale.
The property is less than 10 minutes drive to Pizarra pueblo and less than 30 minutes drive to Malaga city and international airport and less than one hour drive to Marbella.
Pizarra pueblo has a train station included in the Malga cercanias rail network providing a regular reliable and very cheap mode of transport to Malaga city , the airport and along the coast as far as Fuengirola to the West.
Malaga station provides a connection by high speed AVE to Madrid (2 hrs 40 mins).
This really is a very substantial traditional property offering almost endless scope for development into an important Andalucian country estate.
