Full Description


A 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cortijo in Chercos on a tiered plot of over 2500m² with small private pool and olive grove. The traditional 2-storey property boasts 2 reception rooms & 3 log burners/fireplaces and is packed with charm & character.

This beautifully situated cortijo sits in the picturesque mountain village of Chercos. The village of Chercos is just a 10 minute walk away and here you will find all daily amenities, including a couple of bars, shops, medical centre, schools and a park with paddle tennis court. Olula del Rio is the closest larger town with major supermarkets and shops and is located just 20 minutes´ drive from the property.

The plot is split into 3 tiers. As you go up the drive you pass the lower tier planted with olive trees, with enough trees to produce an annual supply of olive oil. The next tier is currently used as an allotment for the planting of various vegetable crops throughout the year with irrigation water provided via a private well. Finally, the top tier boasts grassy areas, a small fruit orchard, patio and small private pool to the rear. On this tier there are also storage rooms and a chicken coup. The views from this tier are absolutely stunning with beautiful countryside separating you from the surrounding mountains. Overall the three tiers provide you with everything needed for a fantastic outdoor lifestyle & give the opportunity to create your own "good life".

At the property, a gate opens into a courtyard with both sunny and shaded areas. The front door leads straight into the main living room complete with a corner fireplace. A door from here leads into the fully fitted kitchen with all white goods. Another door off the living room leads into a laundry room with additional storage and then into the main bathroom which is a great size. Back in the living room, an arch opens up into a 2nd living room or separate dining room on the right. This reception room also boasts a fireplace and leads on to the first of the double bedrooms. This double bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom with shower. The 2nd living room has a separate access point allowing this wing to become more independent to the main house, ideal for a guest wing.

Upstairs, we find ourselves in a spacious landing area suitable for use as an office or study with a corner fireplace. There are 2 further double bedrooms off the landing which are both great sizes and enjoy lovely views. The floor on this level requires tiling, although this is not a major undertaking.

To summarize, this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a traditional property full of charm & character in a stunning & picturesque location.
