3 bedrooms – 1 bathroom – beautiful interior and exterior – central heating – lovely views – private – 9500m2 gently undulating land with productive olive trees – sold with a reliable car  RESERVED

A truly beautiful, stylish and comfortable country house with rustic touches and a magnificent country style kitchen, all set in a plot of gently sloping land, in glorious, peaceful countryside within a 6 minute drive from the centre of the country town of Colmenar and within 30 minutes of Malaga city.

This delightful house offers comfort, style, and total peace in a glorious setting.  The land, 9500m2, planted with well kept, mature, productive olive and almond trees as well as fig trees, (can be looked after by a local farmer), slopes very gently downhill, making the whole plot useable – ideal for planting vegetables, growing fruit trees, or creating more gardens.  There is ample space to add a stylish above-ground pool, which could be flush with the ground at one side.

The property is accessed along a 1.3Km country lane which is part dirt track, but most of it is smooth and flat and fully usable in any type of vehicle all year round.  There are other country houses dotted around along the lane, and there is an excellent community feel amongst the neighbours (this is not a ‘development’) and the local community shares a single natural, and plentiful water source, serving all properties here.

The gated entrance (electric gates) leads to a good sized car parking area for at least 3 cars.  From here is access to all of the plot, which is fully fenced, and makes collecting the olive and almond harvest very easy.  From here, a few tiled steps lead to the front tiled terrace, which is half covered and half open, permitting the owners to enjoy the sunshine in Winter and the shade in the hotter Summer months.  The views from the terrace are beautiful, facing South, overlooking rolling countryside and the town of Colmenar in the distance.  This is the ideal place for outdoor entertaining and eating, relaxing, barbequing, etc., all year round.

The front door leads into the large living room (6.5 x 5m), a most beautiful room, with beamed ceiling, corner woodburner, large built-in bookcase, air conditioning (hot and cold) and radiators.

To the left, is the door to bedroom 1, (4.1 x 3.4m) with dual aspect windows over lovely views and also with air conditioning and radiator, plus store cupboard.  Next door, is the beautiful bathroom, with a large walk-in shower unit and an airing cupboard (4.1 x 2m).

Beyond, (far left) is bedroom 2, (4.1 x 3.8m) with fully fitted, wall to wall wardrobes offering ample storage.  Next to bedroom 2 is a door to a large walk-in cupboard for storage.

To the rear of the living room is the dining room (4.1 x 3m), an ideal room for indoor eating and entertaining. It has a beautiful built-in wooden storage unit with glass door display cabinet with internal display light.  This room was originally designed as the third bedroom and could easily be converted back into a bedroom, as could the study.

Two steps up from the dining room lead into the magnificent kitchen (5.6 x 5m).  This lovely kitchen has a cottage feel about it with beautiful rustic varnished terracotta floor tiling, beamed ceiling, alcoves, and a top of the range, built-in oil fired AGA which keeps the whole house very warm and homely during Winter.  The kitchen is fully fitted with Bosch washing machine and tumble drier, a new dishwasher, a Belfast sink and granite worktops.  There is also a most beautiful, handmade, quality wood dresser, adding more of the cottage feel to this inviting, homely and very spacious room.

From the kitchen, two steps lead down through an arch to the third bedroom, which the current owners use as an office or study, as it is the smallest room (3.4 x 3.2m).  It is ideal as a guest room, where one could have a sofabed that could be opened out when visitors are staying and packed away to use as a study when the bed is not in use.  There are plenty of power points and shelving in this room, plus the WIFI connection point and air conditioning.  The door from this room leads back into the living room.

This lovely house has oil fired central heating throughout and there are air conditioning units in the living room, first bedroom and the study/third bedroom.  The water is from the local community mains and there is a 15,000L water storage deposit which runs through a water softener.  All windows are wooden, with traditional Andalusian wooden shutters and there are mosquito nets on all windows.

This beautiful country house is ideal for anyone wishing to find peace and quiet, and privacy, combined with wonderful views, plenty of walking countryside, nearby spectacular mountain landscapes, a pretty country town just a short drive away – and just half an hour from Malaga and the coast.
