3 bedrooms – 2 bathrooms – striking, panoramic mountain views – 9,500m2 of land – pool – terraces – conservatory

A very pretty house which requires no work, in perfect condition, offering space, total peace, and wonderful panoramic views – and just 5Kms from the pretty country town of Colmenar.

With only a very short track (150 metres) which is in excellent condition, and situated in an open position with panoramic views, including of the magnificent Maroma mountain, this immaculate and spacious country house is being offered at an excellent price.

Just off the track there is a concrete driveway and parking area large enough for around 5 cars, plus a rear courtyard ideal for parking the car (under a pergola area), size 14 x 5m, and this courtyard would also make a delightful extra outdoor living space.  It is currently cemented, but if tiled and the walls rendered, potted plants added, etc, it would make a fabulous area, away from the Summer sun.  At the far end of this walled courtyard is a door into a spacious tool shed or workshop (4 x 3m) with a door off this room to a small ‘bodega’, ideal for storing wine (4 x 2m).  A door from the parking area leads into the house via the ‘reading room’ (see below).

Walking from the car park around to the front of the house, we reach the main, tiled terrace, a very large area with wide, open views that give the whole property a true ‘wow’ factor.  This lovely area is ideal for all year round outdoor living and a fabulous place for a party!  The terrace turns the corner at the far end, where there is a barbecue area and further outdoor seating areas.  Here also is a door to a laundry and store room (3.5 x 3m) and above the store room, is a flat tiled roof, from where the views are even more magnificent.  This might be an ideal place to locate solar panels, should anyone wish to install a solar hot water system, perhaps not only for the hot water but also for the pool.

The pool (around 25m2) is deep at one end and has steps down into the water, located between the front at the side terraces in a lovely position.

From the main terrace, access into the house is via a large covered porch (conservatory) which has pull-down see-through blinds, very useful to keep out the sun, but also the colder Winter air.  This lovely area (10 x 4m) is ideal for all year round living and is currently furnished with comfortable seating and sofas at one end and a dining table at the other. From here, the main front door leads into the open plan living area (10 x 5m).  To the left, a stunning, fully fitted kitchen, with gas hob, electric oven and plenty of storage space.  In the middle is the dining area, and to the right, the living room area, with a double-door corner woodburner for the colder months.  To the far right, beyond the living room area, is a door to the reading room, an additional conservatory area, glassed in and with wonderful views.   This room has a door out to the car parking area.

Back in the living room, a arch to the centre rear leads to a corridor, leading to left and right.  To the left, at the far end, is bedroom 1, 4 x 4.5m plus built-in wardrobe, and air conditioning unit, with double doors into an ensuite shower room (2.75 x 1.25m plus shower unit). Straight ahead, from the arch, is bedroom 2 (3.25 x 3m plus built-in wardrobe), with a window to the courtyard.  To the right, is the family bathroom (2.5 x 2.5m) with both a bath and a separate shower unit, and at the far end bedroom 3 (3.75 x 4.5m) which has an air conditioning unit and views to the mountains.

This property sits on a plot of around 3,500m2 of land, planted with fruit trees, bananas and grapevines.  On the other side of the track and also included in the sale is a further 6,000m2 of land, planted with mature productive almond trees, currently looked after by a local farmer.

This is a most delightful property, ideal for both permanent living and use as a holiday home, in stunning, natural countryside, and only short distance from Colmenar (5 minutes) and Malaga and the coast (35 minutes).
