Renovation Project - Old Olive press (Almazara) to be converted into a large cortijo with attached large barn

Structurally sound large 2 storey cortijo with attached large barn/almacen which was an olive mill for long. Currently out of work. Situated in the municipality of Velez-Blanco, with excellent road access, stunning views to the beautiful hillside of La Muela and located just 6 minutes drive to the picturesque hillside town of Velez-Blanco and 10 minutes drive to the larger market town of Velez-Rubio with plenty of amenities.

Build size of the 2 storey cortijo: 198 m2.
Build size of the barn:166 m2.
Total build size: 364 m2
Total plot size including the buildings: 516 m2.


Ground floor is divided into several rooms. The largest one is a central room where the old-fashioned equipment for olive making is located. Adjacent, to one side of this room and on a lower level, there is a large room with settling tanks. To the other side of the central room there is another large room which was the office of the olive press.

From the central room and near the office a staircase leaves up to the upper level. To the right there are 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. To the left is a massive room which could easily make 3 or 4 further bedrooms and 1 or 2 further bathrooms.

Attached to the cortijo is a large brick-built barn with metal room. The barn is connected internally with the cortijo.

All the new equipment for olive-making (as seen in the pictures) is not included in the sale and will be removed when the property gets sold.

If desired, the old-fashioned equipment (mill and grey cast iron press) is for sale at a negotiable price and can stay in the property. Can you imagine a large lounge-diner with the mill and the iron press incorporated into the lounge? Possibly there would not be any other similar property in the world.

Mains water and electric are on the property but currently not connected.
The property has also water rights to a nearby fountain.
Internet, telephone and Satellite TV are available for connection from local suppliers.

Set on a plot of approx 516 sq. m. (including the buildings) in the Velez Blanco valley, access by tarmac road and with easy access to surrounding countryside for walkers or bikers.

There is an additional plot of agricultural land near to the property which is also for sale by the same owner. The plot is fully flat and has a size of 8151 m2 (approx. 2 acres). POA.

It has been advised that permission can be obtained from the Town Hall to convert the olive press (almazara) into a dwelling.

In summary, an excellent project for either a builder or somebody who wants to take the challenge to convert an old Spanish olive press into a large traditional cortijo. If you do not want to undertake this work yourself then we can help you source local reputable builders.

Please note that an in-ground pool is not allowed here.
