Full Description

Cortijo Travertino - A country house in the Albox area. (Renovated)

EXCLUSIVE TO ALMERIA PROPERTY FINDER! Stunning fully renovated 6 bedroom cortijo with swimming pool, set in land of just over 59.000m2. This immaculately presented two storey property offers a mix of modern and traditional features. It is situated in a tranquil rural area, only 5 minutes drive from the bustling town of Albox which offers all amenities including shops, supermarkets, banks, cafes, tapas bars, restaurants, schools, sports facilities, a 24 hour medical centre and two weekly markets.

A tarmac road leads to a large gravelled parking area to the side of this fabulous country house. Impressive wooden gates open onto a concrete patio to the front of the property which in turn leads to the landscaped gardens and pool area. An old bakehouse has been renovated to create a storage room with shelving and electricity connected. The different areas of the garden and the area surrounding the pool are separated by stunning dry stone walling and statement planting. The 7x4m fibre glass pool is set in a large natural paved patio with ample space for sunbathing and a pergola covered seating area to one side. The plot is partially fenced and the garden is mainly laid to stone chippings with shrubs and mature trees including fig, apple, olive, almond, pomegranate, pear and plum along with some grapevines.

This beautifully presented property can be divided easily to provide two individual dwellings. In the first, traditional wooden stable doors open into an entrance hall with a twin bedroom with ceiling fan to one side, and a good sized double bedroom with ceiling fan to the other. An open doorway leads through to a large family room with Andalucian style tiling, a traditional fireplace housing a wood burner, and two built-in storage cupboards. An open doorway leads through to a stunning Andalucian style kitchen with brick built pillars with wooden lattice doors, granite work surfaces, gas hob, electric oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and a storage cupboard. The kitchen benefits from a traditional fireplace as well as a ceiling fan, and has a door leading out to the garden. From the family room, an archway leads to a large shower room comprising a huge tiled shower cubicle, WC and basin, along with a utility area with washing machine and sink.

Stairs from the family room lead up to the first floor, with a useful understairs log store below. At the top of the stairs is a large bedroom with air conditioning and a large walk-in wardrobe / storeroom. A short corridor leads to another large double bedroom and a bathroom comprising a large tiled walk-in shower cubicle with drying area, WC, basin and towel radiator. The first floor also gives access to a roof terrace with stunning views across open countryside towards Albox and the mountains beyond. From the terrace, a wrought iron gate gives access to stairs which lead down to the front of the house.

The second part of the property is accessed via glazed wooden front doors which open into a fabulous hallway with Travertino marble tiled floors and walls. This part of the house can also be accessed via the family room in the main house. A door from the entrance hall opens into a large double bedroom with air conditioning, and an archway leads through to a large lounge / dining room with a pellet burner and wooden glazed doors leading out to a gym room which is heated by the flue from the pellet burner. The gym has a wrought iron door to the front of the house and would be perfect to house a jacuzzi / hot tub. Off this room is an additional tiled room with sink which could be used as a utility room or outdoor kitchen.

From the lounge, glazed double doors open into a second lounge or snug which benefits from a log burner effect gas fire, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. It has a door which opens out to the rear courtyard and barbecue area. From the dining end of the room, an open archway leads through to a room currently used as a separate dining room but which could easily be converted to a kitchen as it has plumbing in place already. From the middle of the lounge/dining room, an archway leads through to a bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom is a large bright double room with ceiling fan, storage alcoves and a built-in dressing table, and the fabulous bathroom comprises a full size bath with shower over & glazed shower screen, corner basin unit with storage, WC, bidet and towel radiator.

A room to the side of the house is fitted with an air conditioning extractor, marble shelving and a sink and would make a perfect workshop / hobby room. To the rear of the house is a pretty courtyard with feature stone built barbecue area, a beautiful area for alfresco dining. A room leading off the courtyard houses the gas water heater and air conditioning units but is spacious enough to create a chill out room.

The house benefits from gas central heating throughout. The majority of the windows are fitted with insect screens, and all windows and doors are fitted with security rejas. There is also a 16.000 litre water deposit with automatic pump system and solar water heating unit.
