Full Description

A charming & fully renovated cortijo located in Santopetar, near Taberno. The plot of almost 40,000m² boasts plenty of off road parking, an old stable block, terraced gardens & an olive grove.

Located just 10 minutes from the main A7 – E15 motorway, Taberno (2.5km away from the property) is the closest village and is home to basic amenities, including shops, butchers, bakers, bars & restaurants, bank, pharmacy, petrol station, etc. The main town of Huercal-Overa is approx. 15 minutes away from Taberno, whilst the beaches of Mojacar, Garrucha or Vera Playa can be reached within approximately an hour. The airports of Almeria and Murcia International are both an estimated 1h 30mins away, with Alicante approx. 2 hours away.

A short track off the main road leads to the cortijo, with the elevated aspect ensuring far reaching & enviable views. Upon approach, there is plenty of off road parking around a turning circle. On the right is a former stable block with tac room which is no longer in use. There is also a lovely stone walled courtyard with a striking colourful garden in front with many mature plants & trees. This relaxing area also offers plenty of shade for the summer months with a pergola and sail shade. Below this, there are a series of terraced gardens leading down to an olive grove. The natural landscape of the plot has been preserved and is brimming with nature & wildlife. This cortijo is totally off grid with an efficient solar electricity system (offering excellent savings at current electricity prices). Water is delivered, then stored and pumped upon demand. There is also agricultural water from a water deposit for the land, if required.

Upon entry to the property, traditional wooden double doors open into a rustic hallway with exposed ceiling beams, Andalucian floor tiles and a sweeping staircase. The combination of traditional features & immaculate presentation on show certainly set the standard of this property renovation. From the entrance hall, you enter the first of the guest bedrooms which is currently used as a music room. Moving on from the entrance hall, there is a spacious vestibule with two impressive sets of double doors out to the rear terrace & garden. On the left is an art studio; a bright & airy room with a double aspect featuring two sets of double doors to the courtyard garden. Off the vestibule & to the right is the dining room, again with double doors out to the rear. Moving on from here, you enter the lounge with a pitched ceiling, exposed ceiling beams, a wood burning stove and further double doors opening out to the rear terrace. A door at the end of the lounge leads to a guest bedroom with the most impressive ceiling, double doors out to the gardens and an open en-suite shower room. Directly off the dining room or the living room, you enter the traditional Andalucian kitchen with range cooker, island feature and again those exposed ceiling beams. An external door from the kitchen leads to the front terrace with pergola. An internal door from the kitchen then provides access to another guest bedroom with en-suite shower room.

Back in the entrance hall, stairs lead up to the first floor and a spacious landing, currently used as a sitting area. From here a set of double glass doors lead into the huge master bedroom. Impressive finishing touches such as pitched ceilings & exposed beams, reclaimed oak floorboards and a Juliet balcony all add to the charm of this room. A door to the left opens into an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and a separate shower cubicle. Also located on the first floor are two further double bedrooms. Both these guest bedrooms share a Jack & Jill shower room. The larger of the two bedrooms offers a stunning roof terrace accessed via double doors. This very private roof terrace boasts magnificent views and is fitted with a sail shade for the summer months.
