Land or garden:


Old house to restore in small rural hamlet, with garden, on plot of 270m2 – consists of two buildings – 96m2

This interesting old house, dating from 1938, is everything an old, traditional house in a tight cluster of houses in the hills tends to consist of – several sturdy, thick-walled rooms with interesting features, and in this case, a very useful little plot of land which would make an excellent garden.

This little hamlet is located in the hills between Velez-Malaga and Canillas de Aceituno.  Consisting perhaps of some 30 houses, this particular house is located at the far end of the hamlet and offers excellent potential for restoration, possibly to make one main house, plus a useful second guest house, both looking onto a private garden plot.

From the street, the double doors lead into the living room of the main house (3 x 3m) with a deep alcove set into the rear wall and window over the garden below.  To the left is access to the ancient kitchen, still with original fireplace where all the family cooking took place (3 x 2m).  And to the right is the bedroom (3.5 x 3m) with window over the garden.  The house is well looked after, with good roofs, walls and floors.

Next to the main house is a second door from the street leading into a 4 x 2m store room which has been converted into a bathroom.

Next to this is a short passage leading to the garden, plus steps that lead up to the roof terrace above the store room/bathroom, with lovely views over the village and the countryside.

To the left of the passage, still facing the street, is a door into the second building which used to be animal rooms and storage.  The second building is currently divided into two more or less equal halves of around 5 x 4m each.  The second half is accessed from the garden.

It would not cost a great deal to restore these two buildings and make the garden level and beautiful, possibly walled, and this very simple cottage could be converted into a very attractive, typically Andalusian little oasis of beauty and joy!

Suitable for anyone looking for a very simple, not too expensive project in the Andalusian countryside.
