Full Description

The property is accessed via large wrought iron gates onto a gravelled parking area for several vehicles.
This spacious cortijo of over 400m2 has been sympathetically renovated by its current owner in a typical Spanish style with beamed ceilings throughout, with a total of 4 bedrooms (scope for 5) and 5 bathrooms (4 en suite) and 2 cloakrooms on a plot of 1380m2.
Spanish style double doors open onto the south facing front patio and plunge pool/BBQ area with a small casita for storage. The garden is planted with colourful shrubs including a large palm tree, bougainvillea, hibiscus and oleander.
The property has the potential to be used as a guest house and has the advantage of offering a totally self contained apartment which has its own access. A traditional wooden front door opens into a small entrance lobby leading into a large double bedroom with en suite shower room comprising corner shower, WC, basin set in a marble topped vanity unit and wall mounted heater. There is a kitchen with gas cooker, fridge, washing machine and sink, and a lounge with corner wood burner. This could be used as a granny flat or further accommodation. Outside the front door is a shaded patio area and grapevine.
The front door of the main property opens into a large, attractive hallway with a spacious bedroom to each side. Both south facing bedrooms have the benefit of mountain views and lovely original features. Each of the en suite shower rooms have marble top inset wash basins and WCs.
The hallway leads through an archway into a sizable lounge with high, beamed ceilings and a free standing wood burner. A few steps lead down to a large kitchen/dining room. The light and airy spacious kitchen is fully fitted with low level pine cupboards and double stainless steel sink with drainer with plumbing for dishwasher. Views from the 2 metre wide wooden windows look over towards east facing hills. A breakfast bar partly divides the room and the dining area.
Leading from the main kitchen is a small utility room with space for a washing machine and 2 fridge freezers and an exterior wooden door to the kitchen garden. On the other side of the kitchen, 2 shallow steps lead up into a formal dining room (previously 5th bedroom) with large built in deep wardrobes and patio doors to a private exterior east facing gravelled area.
A huge family bathroom leads off the dining room and includes a jacuzzi bath, large glass blocked shower cubicle, WC and marble topped hand basin with mirror/lights, set in vanity unit.
The dining room leads into a fantastic living room measuring 9 x 5 m2 with ceiling fan, panoramic 2 metre windows to all aspects and double doors to south facing patio area. A cloakroom toilet leads off lounge.
Also located off the kitchen you will find another part of the property, complete with second kitchen with sink, cloakroom and w/c. A short corridor leads to a double bedroom with an en suite. This section of the property could easily be converted into a self contained unit with separate access.
Leading on from here is a large 2 storey storeroom with a metal security door to the exterior and metal stairs leading to an additional space above. This in turn gives access to a significant roof terrace with wonderful 360 degree views. This would make an ideal roof garden or sunbathing area. The two storey building could easily be converted to further living space with separate access.
The ground floor storeroom leads out onto a concrete terrace with a gate to land, some of which is planted with Almond, Fig and Quince trees and purpose built animal quarters. There is also a larger than average garage/workshop nearby.
At the rear of the property another piece of south facing land could easily accommodate a large private swimming pool.
A great property with many further possibilities.
