An open plan reception area leads to a warm, rustic bar, quaint salon and cosy lounge that are heated in the winter by the roar of a log burner. There is a dancefloor and performance area, as the property was once used as restaurant that would often host live music and jazz nights.
Outside, the dining area opens up onto a large terrace that overlooks the pool and its purpose built BBQ tikki hut, giving the finca plenty of space for al fresco dining. There are a further three terraces on the property, all linked by a paved walkway.
Found a short walk away from the main house, the self-contained and private Guest Casita has space for six guests in its three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge, kitchen and covered terrace. Continuing in the Al-Andaluz theme, the guest casita too is picturesque, charming and surrounded by luscious garden.
It is currently kitted out for holiday lets and the owner is open to including the likes of crockery, linen etc. in the price.
The finca is surrounded by vibrant gardens and has four wide terraces in total, all linked by a paved walkway. This property is utterly secluded and private. Its grounds has scope for many uses, from restaurants to riding schools or holistic retreats.
The large 12m by 6m pool (shallow: 1.2m, deep: 2.2m) is surrounded by a sunbathing terrace, a BBQ tikki hut and terrific gardens featuring vibrant subtropical trees, shrubs and plants. Chirping birds can be heard singing here, garnering the finca's name Los Pajaritos. There is even a family of deer that frequent here.
For the green thumbed among us, there is an abundance of space (and sunshine) to grow vegetables and crops on the property. There are also many fruit trees dotted around, including orange, lemon, plum, fig, mango, avocado and peach. If that's not enough to fill your fruit salad, there are also raspberries and papaya. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at making wine, you can also find grapevines.
The property also hosts a spacious stable block containing four boxes and a storeroom. Moreover, there is a good size covered yard and rustic field shelters that can be easily changed into smaller paddocks. The surrounding countryside also makes for excellent treks for horse riding, with both mountain and coastal routes available. The property has its zootech license for keeping horses and was previously used as a donkey sanctuary.
Overall, the property feels bright, airy and typically Al-Andaluz. The size and facilities on offer make this an enviable property for both entrepreneurs and families looking to their mark on the mountain. It has been a well-loved family home for 30 years, but it is its potential future that has us at Ideal Spanish Homes completely besotted.
Past and potential uses
During its time as a family home, the finca has also been the centre of various lucrative businesses and projects, most notably its time as a successful restaurant with 65 covers. The finca has its Platos Combinados and Bar license, which can be transferred to the new owner. The property's unique position, coupled with its dazzling panoramic views and rustic feel, will give any would-be restaurateur a wonderful location to build a business.
The owner worked in musical theatre in her time before having children and so her musical enthusiasm translated into the business, often holding jazz nights and live music events at the finca. The finca's dance floor, indoor and outdoor dining space and bar can provide an excellent rentable backdrop for private events, like weddings, birthdays and corporate outings. There is also an open plan reception area, leading to a saloon and comfy lounge where guests can dine and drink long into the early hours. And with its secluded location, you won't have to worry about the neighbours.
The owner is also open to including the fridge, glasses and coffee grinder etc. if buyers are interested.
The property could also be utilised as a bed and breakfast. Its large, spacious rooms and desirable location would make for the ideal honeymoon hotspot, with the bright lights of Marbella only a few miles away. Similarly, it could be used as a boutique hotel, a luxury holiday let or as a well-being retreat. The surrounding natural landscape would be a peaceful location for holistic centres, yoga retreats or a rehab clinic.
Additionally, Finca Los Pajaritos has its Zootech license for keeping horses. For ten years, the current owners ran a donkey sanctuary on the land. They housed the endangered Andalus Giant Donkey, ran a successful breeding program and opened their doors to the public so they could up close and personal with the gentle giants.
The donkeys have since been rehomed, but the stable block containing four boxes and a storeroom remains. Moreover, there is a good size covered yard and rustic field shelters that can be easily changed into smaller paddocks. Given the existing infrastructure, this adaptable property could be used as a horse riding school or summer camp.
The property also has access to a deep well which provides drinkable water and two, 3,000 litre water deposits. A new pump and tubing has also recently been installed. In terms of power, the property has a direct line to the transformer and despite its remote location, it has a telephone and internet connection.
What's great about this property is its versatility. Whether prospective buyers are looking for a lifetime family home, a property investment or business venture, the property has so much room growth. There is a real opportunity here to either build and enhance its rustic, Spanish feel, or start again anew and create a sleek, modern mountain retreat. The possibilities here really are endless.
