This beautifully restored cortijo featuring it’s original wood beams in the ceilings has been finished to a high standard and has the potential to give the new owners either a light and spacious large family home or a home with an income. Perfect for people who love the countryside, birdwatching, cycling or simply enjoying the amazing Almeria sunshine hours, the situation of the cortijo offers it all.
Accommodation wise there are 5 bedrooms (1 en suite), 2 lounges (one on each floor, 2 kitchens which the current owners refer to as the winter and the summer kitchens, there is also a separate dining room too. The layout of the house could be tweaked if necessary to perhaps add a further bathroom for example even though there are 2.5.
In between the main part of the house and what they call the summer kitchen there is a lovely enclosed courtyard where the family spend a large amount of time. In winter it acts as the perfect suntrap in the slightly cooler weather.
At the back of the house they have had built a good sized 6m x 3m swimming pool built to a depth to increase the usage time into the autumn and which has been tiled all the way round, perfect for sunbathing and taking in the amazing uninterrupted views all the way to the Sierra Maria in the background.
From the courtyard there is an independent stairway and entrance up to the top floor of the house giving you the flexibility to make it your own accommodation or as a separate apartment for guests. The area around the back of the house has been fenced but there is a further area of land with almond trees and could easily be incorporated into the main garden if wanted or used for keeping livestock or dogs and so on.
It is only just a 2 minute drive to the main Granada Motorway (A92N) and to the historic town of Velez Rubio where you can cater for all your shopping needs. There is even a local Hostal in walking distance to enjoy the odd tapas or two and a tinto verano perhaps without having to take the car. The city of Baza is less than an hour away with its magnificent Embalse de Negratin nearby and warm thermal spas. Granada City and Airport is within 1 and a half hour’s drive away and of course the Sierra Nevada with its beautiful skiing slopes. Alicante Airport will be just over 2 hours away, Murcia (San Javier) just under 2 hours and Almeria Airport just over an hour – an excellent infrastructure.
Rambling, birdwatching, cycling are all on the menu and there are some amazing mountain drives nearby to drink in the wonderful sights such as the almond blossom stretching for miles during the spring.
