We are honoured to have been asked to market this very charming Andalucian property.
The buyer of this property will, in fact, be buying, not just a beautiful, characterful , country house together with its complimentary buildings but also a large chunk of Andalucian countryside , planted out with olives, almonds and other fruit trees, extending to 53,000m2 or 13 acres.
The main house dates back to the 19th century and has been very tastefully refurbished during recent years to provide a stylish comfortable home.
The accommodation is offered over two levels.
The upper garden level offers a welcoming reception hall leading to a fully equipped , open plan kitchen /dining room . The master bedroom is also located on this level and enjoys direct access to a private East facing balcony which enjoys morning sunshine and amazing views over the Andalucian countryside.
An ensuite "Jack & Jill" shower room and an additional room which is ideal for exploitation as a dressing room, office or nursery completes the accommodation on this level.
An attractive staircase leads down to the lower garden level which offers a cosy sitting room , 2 further bedrooms, a bathroom and an additional room which was formerly a kitchen but which could be exploited as a 4th bedroom or office or just a handy , spacious store room .
The lower garden level also enjoys direct access to the garden and the glorious swimming pool area which hosts a 8m x 4m salt water pool and an expansive sunbathing/entertaining area.
Around the house there are various other , attractive , sunny & shady entertaining areas and the current owners have developed a series of "raised beds" cultivating a great variety of organic produce.
Across an attractive courtyard from the main house is a separate 65m2 building which is currently divided into 2 rooms . The current owners exploit it as a large "chill out" entertaining zone but it could easily be converted to provide separate guest accommodation.
There is also a further 16m2 barn /garage.
Another rather charming feature included in the sale of this property is a genuine 1950s circus wagon which was the circus master's wagon from "Circo de Arte " , Granada.
The owners have very ingeniously converted it into studio style guest accommodation.
Within the land there are various expansive flat areas which would be suitable for equestrian use.
Although the property enjoys a rural location it benefits from excellent access by a quiet tarmac country road and also enjoys the amenities of mains water, irrigation water, mains electricity and high speed internet.
It is located just a short drive from all of the amenities of Álora pueblo.
Álora is a busy market town with a population of around 13,500 and it has all local amenities such as schools, shops, health centre, sports centre, theatre etc. It is located 38km inland from Malaga city and international airport and has excellent communication links both by road and train. It is an excellent base for day trips to all of the major cities of Andalucia such as Seville, Cordoba, Malaga, Granada, Cadiz and Jerez.
It is also a short drive from El Chorro and the Guadalteba lakes.
El Chorro has benefited from substantial investment from both central Spanish government and Europe to reinstate and develop the famous "Caminito del Rey" into , what is a major tourist attraction.
The scenery is quite breathtaking with some stunning mountains and rock formations.It is a very popular area for tourists who wish to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, bird watching, horse riding, hang gliding, landscape painting and particularly rock climbing.
At the Guadalteba lakes one can enjoy any non-motorised water sport or just simply relax and one of the pleasant bar/restaurants located on the edge of the lakes.
