A beautifully renovated Cortijo farmhouse bursting with character and dreamy Andalusian charm set in a stunning mountain location.
A true Andalusian traditional country home in amazingly beautiful surroundings.
Located along a dirt track that is passable in any vehicle all year round, this beautifully restored house nestles on a secluded hillside in the hills between Sedella, Arenas and Velez-Malaga, offering privacy and peace.
There are one or two other houses around but this property is private and not overlooked. A private driveway of around 150m leads to the main cottage, with plenty of flat areas for parking.
To the front of the house is a simply charming dining terrace (6 x 3.5m) with an arched metal framed structure which has a cover to create a cool, shaded terrace in the Summer. From here there are beautiful views of the surrounding hills, and this terrace leads around to the pool terrace. The pool is 23m2 and is a unique shape and very attractive, with terracotta tiles around and low walls. Next to the pool is an additional patio area and there is an outhouse with a large fenced field, ideal for dogs.
The pool terrace has a built-in barbecue and sink, a store cupboard (2.25 x 1m) and there is a detached shed.
There is an additional small outbuilding to the side of the house.
From the front dining terrace, double painted doors lead into the living room/dining room, (6.5 x 4m) with charming features such as traditional style shuttered windows, sloping ceiling, original alcoves in the walls, and a built-in woodburning fireplace at the far end.
To the other end a tall arch and two shallow steps lead into the rustic style kitchen (4 x 3m) with double doors to the gardens.
Back in the living room, a further tall archway leads into the inner hallway (3 x 2m) with pretty centred window to the rear, looking over the rear of the property. To the right, a door leads into a bedroom (3.75 x 3m) with window to the side, and a further door leads into the en-suite shower room (2 x 1.5m plus walk-in shower area). The walk-in shower area is accessed through an archway with brick detail, and has a beautiful terracotta tiled floor.
From the hall, to the left, a pretty passageway (4m long) leads past the stairs, past the family bathroom with walk-in shower, and alcove, (3.25 x 2.25m), and to the second bedroom.
This bedroom (3.25 x 3.25m) has double doors to a pretty terrace of around 3.5 x 2m with wooden pergola roof covering and a lovely built-in tiled seating area.
This bedroom is currently used as an office, with a double sofa bed for guests.
The stairs lead up to the third bedroom, with sloping ceiling and beams, and two sets of double wooden doors onto juliet balconies overlooking the front and side of the house. This beautiful room is around 6 x 3.25m.
Beyond the house, immediate terraces and pretty gardens planted with flowers, trees and shrubs, a path leads to the rest of the plot, forking in two different directions, past many productive olive and almond trees, lovingly looked after by a good neighbour.
This is a real gem of a property, bursting with beauty and original features, and still with plenty more potential.
