720m² Plot Size
A spacious and well laid out traditional Spanish Cortijo which is detached and sits in a large plot of
This empathetically restored, decorated and improved Cortijo is on the edge of a small hamlet just a
short drive from the beautiful mountain village of Lubrin and with access to a variety of scenic routes
down to the coast at Mojacar within 30 minutes or so. Ideal especially for a keen motorbiker!
On the ground floor there is nice entrance hall off which are 2 of the 4 large double bedrooms. One
of these bedrooms also has a dressing and en suite bathroom and there is another family sized
bathroom for use by the guest rooms. Further into the house and to the back of the property you
will find a large but cosy and comfortable lounge with a good sized log burner ideal for the cooler
winter evenings. At the far end is the door through to a light and spacious separate dining room
which then leads into a long and spacious well fitted kitchen with breakfast bar. From this room you
also have access to the front of the house and to the rear which leads out to a charmingly built fly
free enclosure perfect for al fresco dining and making the most of the early spring afternoon
sunshine. Also off the kitchen is a very handy pantry/dispenser.
Off the sitting room also goes the original staircase to the top floor where you will find a spacious
landing currently used as the owner’s hobby area off which are 2 further double bedrooms. The
landing could perhaps be converted into an upstairs bathroom to share.
Throughout the house you will find some lovely features and enclosed storage areas and a homely
warm feel. The furniture will be included within the sale price (barring a few sentimental items) and
is therefore ready to move straight into.
Outside and all around the house you will find a plethora of well thought out seating and landscaped
areas to make the best of the sun and shade throughout the year. The garden has well established
plants, fruit trees and decorative trees throughout with thriving black and white grape vines, a
lemon tree already bursting with fruit and many other varieties to feed you throughout the year.
The fully enclosed plot with automatic front gate opener also includes a lovely swimming pool area
with roman steps and sunbathing areas with views to the mountains behind.
There is a large workshop and small wooden shed and parking to the front of the property for at
least 5 cars. To the front of the property are beautiful open views to the mountains at the back, all
in all a lovely property for those looking for a quiet but integrated life in a small Spanish village –
don’t hesitate to view!
There is a 35-40 minute drive to the coast at Mojacar, the lively town of Lubrin just 7 minutes away
and the towns of Albox or Huercal Overa are about 20 minutes away. This truly is a central position
to live in the beautiful province of Almeria.
