Full description:

This cortijo is everything one can dream of for a perfect old style but immaculate country home in Andalusia! Located along an excellent concrete country lane around 5 or 6 minutes’ drive from the village, large iron gates lead into the ample private parking area, from where the house, set against the dramatic Mount Maroma, immediately captivates the visitor!

From a pretty covered terrace area, the front door leads into a hallway which is open to the ceiling of the upper level, with a staircase to the right. To the left, a door leads into the very pretty kitchen, in rustic style with a hatch for passing food from the kitchen to the dining area beyond. To the right and under the stairway, is a door into Bedroom 1, a spacious and comfortable room with beautiful built-in wardrobe and a pretty ensuite shower room.

From the hall, straight ahead leads into the magnificent living / dining room. This stunning room is once again, like the hall, open to the upper level in an open, atrium fashion with a gallery above on the upper floor overlooking the living area. A pretty open fireplace with a traditional woodburner installed within it, is central to the living area, whilst the dining area, nearest the kitchen, is large enough for a very large table and enjoys views from the double wooden patio doors out to the garden. There are many beautiful features in this room (as there are throughout the house) such as 17th Century restored wooden cupboard doors set within the wall and thick beams.

To the far end of this room is a door leading into a little distribution area, separating Bedroom number 2, to the left (with beautiful views over the garden), and the second shower room (straight ahead). To the right, a door leads into a long, and useful store room (11m long) and from here is access outside, to the outside kitchen/dining and barbeque area.

Returning to the main hallway, we take the open staircase up to a landing area, with a wide gallery corridor open to the living room below. A door to the right leads into Bedroom 3, with dressing area, ensuite shower room, and the bedroom with patio doors leading straight out to the rear terrace and pool. And to the far end of the gallery corridor is access to Bedroom 4 and ensuite shower room, in a similar setup and size and also with door to the outside.

The outside kitchen is complete with pretty rustic style sink, barbeque, a traditional Andalusian bread oven, store units, fridge and plenty of worktop space for food preparation. There is a large area for dining out, under the covered area.

From here we can contemplate the beautiful lawns and many flowering trees and shrubs in this carefully manicured and mature garden – a true oasis of total peace and quiet!

Steps to the side of the outdoor kitchen area lead up to the pool garden, with a most unusual, half-circle shaped pool with lawned area around it. The pool has a rustic style water feature made with traditional Arabic style roof tiles, and is most effective!

From this area there is access to the two upstairs bedrooms, and a large rear dining terrace.

From the garden, wide steps lead to a secluded and very lovely, part shaded vegetable growing area. And further towards the entrance gate, a pretty path, lined with pine trees, leads down a slope to the rest of the land. The land is beautifully terraced and has 200 pine trees, 100 avocado trees, almond trees and many others and the entire plot is fully fenced.

Main features of this property:

About Unspoilt Andalusia , Malaga

Unspoilt Andalusia has been finding properties in Spain for people from all around the world since 2002. We are not a large agency and have no shop window, we work from our home, a converted old country schoolbuilding in the countryside 4 Kms from the pretty town of Velez-Malaga, 30 Kms East of Malaga city. Our home is also a very comfortable bed and breakfast and many of our clients choose to stay here during their visit. For a link to the B&B, click here: www.escuelalacrujia.com

We have helped many people buy a property here, and many of our clients, now our friends, have settled here permanently or have a wonderful holiday home, enjoying our perfect climate and relaxed pace of life, because that’s what life is all about!

We are constantly searching for new properties to offer our client base and have around 200 selected properties at any one time on offer. We also work with many local companies and contacts, (from other reliable local estate agents, to little old men in villages who know everyone and everything in their town!), so we can ‘spread the net’ if you can’t find what you are looking for, or if you are overwhelmed and baffled by so much information out there on the internet.

So please email us your requirements and we can start searching for you.

Renovation and Building

If you are looking for a project, or a property that needs work, we can help you too. We have helped a good number of clients to renovate old cortijos or village houses, to build new houses, change roofs, add extensions, and so on. We can co-ordinate any work required for a small management fee, including working with you to design changes to your property layout, liaising with architects, navigating through building regulations, 0btaining planning permission, obtaining quotes from local builders and seeing the project through to the end. Contact us for more information.
