Land or garden:


100/110m2 main house currently with 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms; could be 2/3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms – 25m2 outbuilding, could be guest casita – pool – totally private – few minutes walk to the village – 9850m2 plot

A simply stunning, Spanish ‘cortijo’, which for the current owners has been a place of joy and family reunions since it was built (on the foundations of an older house) in 2005.  It benefits from a large, most beautiful plot, a plentiful supply of private, fresh mountain well water, and access to the ‘manantial’ mountain waters with a fascinating, deep, open water trough at the top of the plot for irrigation which fills naturally every night, and never runs out.

Located within 1 Km of the picturesque village of Canillas de Aceituno, with its excellent facilities, this is the perfect country house, given that it is close to the village, it is totally private, it has a pool, plenty of water and plenty of land.  It is also split into a main house, and an outbuilding.  These are all highly sought-after features.

As the current owners built the house for family days out, there is currently only one bedroom and two bathrooms, (bedroom 3.5 x 2.5m, bathroom 3.5 x 1.5m with double walk-in shower, second 1.5 x 1.5m shower room currently accessed from outside), but the rest of the space is open and is around 12 x 5m for the open living room area and an additional 5 x 2m area for the kitchen.  Hence it would not be difficult to add a second or even a third bedroom, or a second bedroom and a second bathroom.

The outbuilding is a modern build too and is around 25m2 in total.  It could be made into an additional bedroom and bathroom.

The access to the house is via a gated driveway, past pine and olive trees, to a lovely parking area, with a pretty olive tree featured in a central raised bed.  The main garden area, all flat, with the house standing in the middle, has a lovely backdrop of pine and olive trees plus mountain views and also has a lovely barbeque and outside kitchen next to a built-in long table for outside dining.

Beyond is a huge flat area, backed by magnificent trees, with the 46m2 pool in the centre.

The rest of the plot is dedicated to carefully landscaped terraces climbing up the hill, at the base of which is the outbuilding and a large flat area beyond which could be made into lovely private gardens for the little ‘apartment’.

A path leads up the hill and past all of the terraces, and at the top is the large open ‘manantial’ deposit (the deposit, built in a long concrete rectangle is very deep and the water is crystal clear!) and a further enclosed water deposit.

This is pure, mountain terrain, beautiful, serene and fragrant, full of wildlife and blessed by the natural, dappled shade of so many trees!  There are also plenty of fruit trees, including quince, fig, orange, nispero, avocado, mango and olive, and there is also a kitchen garden.

A wonderful property in a unique location, with plenty of potential to make this a stunning country home for holidays or for permanent living.  Book an appointment before it is snapped up!
