Full Description

This completely reformed 4 bedroom 3 bathroom farmhouse is superbly located in a small farming hamlet with a very rural feel and aspect, yet just a three minute drive from the motorway and main town of Velez Rubio. There is a second property and plot of land to the rear offering plenty of potential for further development or as an extended garden.

Arriving at the property via a tarmac road, there is a parking area immediately to the right and this leads around to the front of the property. The aspect is idyllic with established grapevines trailing across and over the front porch and creating a shaded area. The front door into the property opens to a central hallway with the living room with feature log burning stove and stone walling to the right. To the left is a fantastic spacious & modern farmhouse kitchen with black granite worktops and wonderful range cooker, plus a log burning stove. The exposed wooden beams contrast wonderfully with the modern kitchen and add to the authenticity of the property.

Returning to the entrance hall and continuing ahead, there is a staircase to the upper floor whilst a door on the left-hand side leads to the patio area and a separate utility plus shower room & WC. Steps take you to the large terrace, swimming pool and separate solarium and there is also a sunken courtyard here with outdoor kitchen facilities. The outside areas offer wonderful views of the mountains.

Returning inside, at the base of the staircase and on the right, is a generous storeroom and next to this is the downstairs bedroom which is currently used as an office. Halfway up the staircase from a half-landing is a guest shower/wet room and the stairs continue around to a large landing which is currently used as a snug area. From this landing there are three bedrooms. The third bedroom is a generous double with traditional style wardrobe, whilst the second bedroom is larger again and also benefits from a walk-in wardrobe. The master bedroom is wonderful; a very spacious room with a full en-suite bathroom with mosaic tiling throughout. The chimney flue has been deliberately exposed and surrounded with stonework and is a real feature of this room and there is also a doorway to the solarium from here.

There is a large single garage at the front of the property. To the rear of the farmhouse is another property included within the sale. This is a large farmhouse (measuring approx. 262m²) which is in need of extensive reform or rebuild as well as 1000 m² of land. This property could be converted into separate accommodation units or another individual property - there really is a lot of scope here. Likewise, it could also become an extended garden or orchard for the main property.

The property is located just a short drive from Velez Rubio offering all amenities, including schools, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, bakeries, butchers, pharmacy, doctor etc. The nearest coastal resort is Aguilas and this can be reached with an approximate 45 minute drive. Local markets include Velez Blanco on a Wednesday and Velez Rubio on a Saturday.
