Rustic style original village house with plenty of potential for renovation and improvement for modern living.

Located in a lovely street, the property is minutes away from the main town square and yet hidden away in a quiet street of this picturesque mountain village. This traditional village house has huge potential for renovation and conversion into a more modern layout, whilst still conserving the quirkiness of the original building, with its thick walls, original floors, fireplace and beams.

From the front door, the living room conserves the original fire place and alcoves and a small door on the far side leading to a hidden set of shelving (3x5m).

A door to the left of the fire place leads up a couple of steps into the master bedroom (4x3m) which currently also includes a toilet next to the bed! (could be a small ensuite shower room).

The other door from the living room leads down a couple of steps into the kitchen (5x3m) that has all of the original features from its original construction, over 80 years ago.

To the left as you enter the kitchen there is a door that leads out onto the patio, where there are also stairs that lead up to the top floor.

The patio (3x3m) has a small open kitchen which could be converted into a bathroom, pantry or store room and above it a small open terrace area.

This patio is the perfect place to locate a new set of stairs leading up to the roof, where there is the possibility of creating a lovely terrace with outstanding views of the sweeping valley below,  Lake Viñuela and the sea in the distance.

Just below the patio, down a small slope is another independent room with an ensuite bathroom, located directly below the master bedroom.  This room (3x3m) used to be a small wine cellar or Bodega.

The stairs from the kitchen lead up to an open room (3×4), currently used as a bedroom.  To the right, a couple more steps lead into a large bedroom (3x5m) with a high, sloping ceiling.  This room leads onto another room (3x3m) currently used for storage but this room would make a fabulous en-suite bathroom.

About a minute away there is a lookout point with lovely views and an old historic building where the women of the village used to wash clothes, that has been renovated to what it once would have been with natural running water, and is now a very beautiful and relaxing place to visit.

The village itself has plenty of facilities, from local food shops, chemist, banks, and an excellent variety of bars and restaurants, school, medical centre and bus services to Velez-Malaga and the coast and a large municipal outdoor swimming pool that overlooks the valley.
