It is located within 38,000m2 of land which although sloping in parts also offers some relatively flat areas including a very interesting old "era" or stone threshing circle. The land is planted out with almonds, olives, pomegranate and fig trees.
The farmhouse has been thoughtfully upgraded and modernised by the current owner and now offers an attractive blend of traditional and contemporary features.
The restoration has not been completly finished although the majority of the hard work has been done. All of the structural work has been completed including a new roof as has the electrical supply, plumbing and some of the rendering and some very attractive carpentry work.
What is offered is a watertight house which is habitable although perhaps still a little primitive.
The accommodation is distributed over two levels.
The ground floor offers a large reception room equipped with a wood burning stove and featuring a central wooden staircase. Steps lead down to a cosy sitting area or study . There is also a kitchen and one further room which completes the accommodation on this level.
On the upper level there are 3 bedrooms and a large bathroom offering both a bath tub and a separate shower. One of the bedrooms has access to a terrace.
The total buid size of the house is 124m2.
A very pretty terrace area extends along the front of the house hosting bouganvilia and a mature fig tree and to the rear of the property there is a kitchen garden, hosting orange, lemon, nectarine, mandarin and pomegranate trees.
Although this property enjoys a stunning rural location , it is not remote , being only 4km from the hamlet of Barriada Bellavista and approx 8km from Álora pueblo.
Álora is a busy market town with a population of around 13,500 and it has all local amenities such as schools, shops, health centre, sports centre, theatre etc. It is located 38km inland from Malaga city and international airport and has excellent communication links both by road and train. It is an excellent base for day trips to all of the major cities of Andalucia such as Seville, Cordoba, Malaga, Granada, Cadiz & Jerez.
The property is also less than 30 minutes drive from El Chorro.
El Chorro is currently benefiting from substantial investment from both central Spanish government and Europe to reinstate and develop the famous “Caminito del Rey” into , what is hoped will be, a major tourist attraction.
The scenery is quite breathtaking with some stunning mountains and rock formations.It is a very popular area for tourists who wish to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, bird watching, horse riding, hang gliding, landscape painting and particularly rock climbing.
The property is connected to mains electricity and has a private well although the current owner does not exploit the well at present and has a 10,000 litre water storage facility.
With just a little further investment this property could offer a new owner a very special rural retreat either for permanent or holiday accommodation.
