A charming, detached, rustic style house, retaining all of its original features, set in glorious countryside, on a sunny hillside above the sub-tropical river valley of Velez-Malaga

This delightful 78m2, detached country house is set on a garden plot of around 340m2, plus rights to one ‘pasero’, the ancient raisin-drying beds used to dry grapes in the late Summer.  This lovely house is a perfect, affordable ‘get-away’ for anyone wishing to escape the busy, modern world, and is a little piece of Andalusian history.

Casita Juan is situated in a little cluster of ancient country cottages forming a little hamlet, all old, character buildings and typically Andalusian.  Many have been restored and are now beautiful examples of local rural homes in all their original glory.

Access is good, with no dirt track, and is around 7 minutes’ drive up the hill from the village of Triana, which has a supermarket, chemist, infant school, health centre, cultural centre, swimming pool and sports facilities, plus two bar/restaurants.  Triana is 5 minutes from the larger village of Benamargosa, and 10 minutes from the largest town in the area, the historic town of Velez-Malaga.  It is 20 minutes from the coast and within 45 minutes of Malaga city.

Also not far away is Lake Viñuela (15 mins) and the lake-view village of Los Romanes (15 mins).

The property
The property consists of a walled/fenced garden with 3 terraces on 3 different levels, one of which has a cane covering and another with a built-in seating area.  There are flowering borders and trees, including a beautiful jacaranda tree with its bright purple blossom.  There is a sweet little built-in splash pool and beautiful views over the countryside looking mainly West.

Just outside the fenced area are three ancient raisin-drying beds (‘paseros’) and this property owns one of them. This space (around 5 x 2m) could be used to grow a few vegetables or fruit trees, or cleared and used as a parking spot. Equally, the raisin-drying beds are part of the local history, and could be restored.

The front door of the house leads into a useful hallway with flagstone floors and huge double doors leading into the living room.  Immediately the character of this home offers the visitor a feeling of walking into history, with sloping, beamed ceilings, ancient, original wooden windows and 1m thick stone walls.  The living room (around 5 x 3m) has an open fireplace for cosy Winter evenings.  To the left is an opening, leading to the kitchen, fully fitted (3.2 x 2.5m), bathroom (2 x 2m) with bath and shower, and bedroom1 (2.5 x 4m).  To the far end of the living room is a short passage to bedroom 2, (4 x 3.2m) which has a door leading out to the terrace immediately above the pool, with lovely views.

Whilst the house could benefit from improvement of small details, it is in very good condition, just needing a little polishing-up, and some attention to the garden area.
