Full of character and charm, this unusual, top quality 4 bedroom country house is ideally situated within a quiet and peaceful setting, yet just 2km from the country town of Colmenar.
Surrounded by olive groves and only a 30 minute walk from town and a few minutes in the car, this superb house is set within a 9,000m2 plot with many ancient olive trees and a mix of fruit and decorative trees, with native flowering bulbs including narcissi, orchids and freesias. Much of the plot is walkable and usable, the rest dropping down into a lush, green small arroyo (brook/creek) valley, with beautiful mountain and countryside views in all directions.
Around the house are the most exquisite gardens, carefully planted with Mediterranean flowering plants, trees, bushes, and succulents, requiring very little water. It is a total delight to wander around the gardens, with the ever-constant glimpse of the magnificent mountain backdrop between the trees. The topography of the property lends itself to a number of beautiful ways to integrate a swimming pool, perhaps with stonewalling around an above ground pool, and flush with the ground at one end. There are 2 parking areas providing ease of access and ample space for a number of cars including areas with natural shading.
The house, which is presented in a rustic style, has charming architectural features, achieving the true character of an older country property. From ceiling wooden beams, to wooden shutters and beautifully detailed doors to alcoves and terracotta floors.
Built on 2 floors, the main part of the house is on the ground floor level, plus an open area under the house for storage, where water tanks for garden rain water and fresh water are currently located. A pergola with wisteria covering surrounds the stairs which leads to a walkway that leads around the house. The south walkway provides additional space for dining or seating areas with pomegranate trees and a pergola covered in grapes providing shaded areas.
The front door leads from the walkway into a hallway, with a utility room located off the hallway as well as the stairs. From here, to the right is access to the living area. Here, a fully fitted and top quality kitchen, with plenty of space (4.3 x 3m) and plenty of light, has a wood-burner for cosy winter evenings, and a door leading out to a shaded terrace, ideal for outdoor eating. Double doors lead from the kitchen into the dining room (3.5 x 3m) with wide arch opening into the comfortable living room (4.5 x 4.3m). This delightful room has high ceilings and beams, interesting alcoves in the thick walls, and plenty of natural daylight, along with exquisite wall lighting. There is a second wood-burner in this room too. This set of rooms flow beautifully between each other, with high ceilings and a sense of quality throughout. From the hall left, a short corridor leads to guest bedrooms 1 (3 x 3m) and 2 (3 x 2.6m) and the guest bathroom (3 x 2m) to the right of the corridor. To the left is the very spacious and quite magnificent master bedroom (around 4.5 x 4m) with a door to a large en-suite bathroom in simple white and blue tiles (3 x 2m) with a bath and walk-in shower. All rooms have a sense of country simplicity with a touch of luxury, with rustic details such as wall alcoves, Andalusian style wooden shuttered windows and built-in shelving, and the bedrooms all have quality wood built-in wardrobes.
From the hallway are stairs leading to the lower level. This level consists of a huge room (80m2), and off this room is a large 'cinema' room (50m2) which would be ideal for setting up a home cinema, and with windows to the outside, plus a store room (4 x 2m) a bathroom (2 x 2m - currently without a shower fitted, but there is plenty of space to add one), and a fourth bedroom (4 x 3.5m).
For anyone thinking of running a small business, this whole floor could be dedicated to a number of activities, such as yoga, classes, lectures, or similar. It is a wonderfully cool space in the summer.
This beautiful house offers quality living in a totally natural environment, just 2km from a country town and 35 minutes from Malaga and the coast.
