2 bedrooms – 1 bathroom – rustic 90m2 semi detached cottage – peaceful location – easy access – 173m2 plot

A very pretty, rustic style semi detached cottage hidden away amongst the trees just 10 minutes drive from Benamargosa village, with easy access and easy parking.

This beautiful little house, 90m2 (45m2 on each floor), is fully habitable and bursting with original rustic features.  Hidden away down a lane just off the Benamargosa to Riogordo road, it offers genuine, authentic country living at an affordable price.  It would be ideal as both a permanent home and a holiday cottage.

The house, built around 1950, was originally a worker’s cottage.  It has pretty patio gardens to the front and rear.  Access from the lane is via a garden gate, leading under a magnificent, pink bourganvillea, to the rear patio, or via a garden gate to the front into the front patio.  Both patios are full of exotic flowering plants, and are private and shaded in places, with original cobbled flooring.

From the rear patio garden, double wooden doors lead into a pretty living room, with beams and cane ceiling as is very typical of the older houses in this area.  This room, 4.5 x 3.25m, has a cast iron woodburner on the far wall for cosy Winter evenings.  To the rear left, double doors lead into the rather pretty, very quirky bathroom, (4 x 2m), in green and white tiles, with a large, walk-in shower.  To the rear right, an opening through thick walls leads into the kitchen (3.5 x 3m including the open staircase to the left), again, very rustic in style and a door to the front patio garden.

The stairs lead up to a large landing, open to the stairwell (3.5 x 3m) with sloping beamed ceiling and light from two windows.  Off the landing is bedroom 1 (3.5 x 2.5m) with window over the front garden, and bedroom 2 (5 x 3.5m) with double wooden doors over railings, overlooking the rear garden, and a window to the side.  Both bedrooms have sloping ceilings with beams and painted wooden windows.

The woodwork throughout the house is painted a coral pink which matches the colour of the bourganvillea outside and works very well in the house.  Original terracotta floor tiling, thick walls and interesting alcoves all complement the authentic rustic nature of this delightful country house.
