3 bedrooms – 2 bathrooms – stunning natural environment in the hills, top quality build – car included!

A very beautiful, immaculate and well designed country house consisting of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a simply breathtaking part of the unspoilt countryside to the North of Malaga.

The definition of Lagar is an olive or grape press or the building in which such activities took place, and this old house, on a remote hillside North East of Malaga, has been rebuilt and reformed to make a comfortable, stylish house that is packed with the rustic charm of its distant past.

Located 8 Kms from the pretty country town of Colmenar, which is itself around 30 minutes’ drive of Malaga and the airport, this property is ideal for any discerning house owner who wishes to have quality, seclusion, and yet plenty of nature all around!  The trees on the 10,670m2 plot are mainly olives, and original, indigenous oak and carob trees (Andalusia was once totally covered in thick forests of these trees and few remain today) with easily accessible paths leading across the land, and sloping gently down the hill to a river deep in the valley below.  There are plenty of spaces where one could either erect an above ground pool or create a natural rock pool with installed waterfall or fountain, to fit in beautifully into the natural landscape.

By the house is a gated entrance leading to a very large area for parking several cars, under the natural shade of the trees.  Immediately upon arrival one feels the sense of peace and tranquilty that comes from having nature all around!  One hears nothing but the birds singing and the breeze in the trees.

A part open and part covered tiled terrace serves as an ideal place to spend most of one’s time in this hidden heaven! And there are plenty of areas beneath the trees that are ideal for outside living and dining.

From the terrace, a door leads into the living/dining room (5.5 x 5m) with beautiful fireplace fitted with a log burner, as a central feature of this lovely room.  The kitchen is open plan to the living room, separated by a brick decorated breakfast bar (4 x 3m) with an additional store room (2 x 2.5m).  All the units are solid cherry wood with granite top.

Four shallow steps lead to a short corridor leading to the rest of the house.

To the left, bedroom 1, currently used as a study, is 4 x 3m with window to the front.  Also to the left is bedroom 2, of the same size.  To the right of the corridor is the family bathroom, a generous 4 x 2m, and at the end is bedroom 3, also 4 x 3m, and the corridor also has a door leading outside to a rear patio area.

Outside there is around 120m2 of paved terracing with lovely views over the countryside.

The house is sold with a Mercedes 400ml diesel vehicle (2002) in very good condition and ideal for the countryside.

This delightful property has a track of around 1.3Kms, well into the countryside, and is around 20 minutes from Colmenar.
