Full Description

A stunning modern cortijo in the Cariatiz area, packed full of rustic charm and traditional features. The location is simply idyllic with 180º country views from every angle to the front of the property (including a unique covered terrace area with stone wall backing). To the rear of the house is the pool area with open terracing on two levels, an established desert garden, and open country views. If you are looking for a property with individuality then this is a must view! The house itself is a generous 167m² build and sits within a plot of 2815m².

The front aspect of the house is genuinely striking. Looking up from the established gardens there are dry stone walls, mature shrubs and stone steps up to the front terrace. The views from here are fantastic & uninterrupted over the mature gardens and fruit trees to the almond & olive groves with rolling hills beyond. The large covered porch enjoys the best of these views and the stone wall façade here contrasts with the terracotta tiling and adds to the authentic rustic charm and aesthetic appeal of the house.

The front door opens into a sizable entrance hallway from the porch, with double doors to the right leading into the living room, kitchen and dining area. Ahead is a very large double bedroom with dark wood fitted wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom. There is also another door into this bathroom from the hallway so it can be used as both an en-suite and guest bathroom. The hallway continues to a further double bedroom with a sitting room area at one end of the room and the bedroom area beyond. Whilst this is the smallest of the three bedrooms, it still easily accommodates two single beds (or a double) and has a large bank of fitted wardrobes along one side. Continuing to the end of the hallway a door leads into the master bedroom which is simply enormous. This bedroom also has fitted wardrobes, hot & cold A/C, a full en-suite shower room and a door out to the rear terrace and pool area.

At the opposite end of the hallway (next to the front door), double doors lead into the living room with its high ceilings, wooden beams and plinths, hot & cold A/C, Hergom log burning stove and wonderful views through the patio doors which open to the front terrace. A step up from the living room brings you into a large dining room, again with feature wooden beams, and there is a door into the kitchen between the living and dining areas. The kitchen boasts granite worktops plus brick built cupboards and wooden doors to continue the rustic theme and the kitchen is an impressive size overall. An archway opens into another dining area with a large utility room/larder behind and a stable door leads out to a huge enclosed stone paved courtyard offering a great deal of privacy. There is also a traditional tiled seating area and outdoor kitchen/barbecue here.

At the top end of the courtyard are two storerooms, the larger of which measures 26m² and already encompasses a WC. The floors are tiled and this could easily be converted into a separate 1 bedroom annexe. The smaller of the two storerooms is a generous 13m², offering ample storage space for the property.

An arched gate takes you from the courtyard to the rear of the house with stone walls and steps around landscaped planting areas including palm trees, evergreens and vibrant flowers. There is a sheltered terrace area with pergola for al fresco dining, and a huge expanse of open terracing around the unique shaped pool. The gardens here are low maintenance and well-established, including a mature fig tree next to a pergola over a swing chair in the corner of the garden; a great shady spot to enjoy the rugged country views and relax near the pool.

Access to the property is excellent via tarmac roads leading to a concrete driveway right along one side of the property. There is a car port area for two cars just below the house with stone steps leading up through the established gardens to the front door.
