A secluded, pretty, rustic style detached cottage requiring some light renovation or improvement, nestled in a quiet, very natural valley with total peace and privacy, located along a short dirt track, just 10 minutes from the village of Los Romanes

From the very beautiful village of Los Romanes, well known for its stunning views of Lake Viñuela and the mountains, a concrete country lane leads to an area of country houses, most of which are original cortijos and rustic style properties that have been lovingly restored to blend in perfectly to the natural environment in which they have stood for over 100 years.  Just beyond this area, secluded from this little community by a short dirt track and totally on its own, is this pretty rustic style cottage, located on its own plot of just under 1000m2.  The house is estimated to be around 50 years old at least, possibly much more, although written records have not recorded its construction date.

The house currently has no electricity or water metre connection, but both are possible to process as both are currently on site.  This delightful cottage is sold in its current state, requiring some very light renovation and connection of services, for an excellent price and packed with original rustic features such as sloping ceilings, beams, rustic floors and windows, and pretty cane ceiling features in places.

The track leads to a parking area and to the left is the outbuilding, which has a bathroom and could be used as a store room. Steps to one side of this building lead up to a roof terrace with lovely views.

Beyond is the main patio terrace and main house, (80m2) consisting of a large living room, large fitted rustic style kitchen with the original fireplace at the far end, 3 bedrooms, one of which could easily be converted into a bathroom.  The house has sloping roofs with beams, and rustic floor tiles and windows.  Some simple rearranging of the inside would improve the house significantly.

Next to the house and adjoining it, on a lower level accessed via steps to a lower patio area, is the annexe, (24m2) consisting of two rooms, each with a door to the patio, and one of which is currently used as a spare bedroom, the other as a storeroom/workshop.

This delightful house is ideal for anyone on a limited budget, looking for a place to escape to and a small, light renovation project to update the house.
