A very attractive, rustic, traditional style country house on a lovely plot with lovely views and good access, between Canillas de Aceituno and Velez-Malaga. Available for long term rent to buy option.  Purchase price: 165,0000 Euros.  Rental payments become a part of the purchase price.

This very beautiful house, located along a very short track from the road leading up to Canillas de Aceituno, is now available for long term rent, with purchase option.  The owners are keen to only let the house to those wishing to purchase after 2+ years.

The plot has a gated car parking area at the far end, and a pedestrian entrance gate leading into the main terrace area.

The property has plenty of flat outside space, much of it paved in rustic tile paving, on several levels, with a beautiful pool terrace on the highest level, large barbeque terrace on the next level, with a large outside kitchen, and the terrace on which the house sits, with the car parking area below. Steps to the side of the terraces lead down to the garden areas below, with mature trees, including cyprus, figs, mangos, paraguayas and apple, and plenty of space to grow more trees, vegetables, or try one’s hand at creating a Mediterranean garden.

The house has a lovely covered porch area (6 x 4m) with traditional wooden beams and cane covering and beautiful views down the valley, and to the other side of the house (facing the pool area) is an additional covered terrace of 6 x 3m with a lockable store room/tool shed at the far end.

From the main covered porch area, double wooden doors lead into the open plan dining room and kitchen area (10 x 3.25m) with sloping ceilings and beams, and a ceiling fan. This is a beautiful room, like all the rooms in the house and to one side of the fully fitted kitchen is the utility or store room for extra kitchen storage space. There is a wood-burning stove in this room which keeps the house warm and cosy in Winter.

A large, central opening with amazingly thick walls (a feature throughout the house) leads into the sitting room (5 x 3m), again with beamed ceiling. To the far left of the sitting room is a door to the family bathroom (former donkey stable!) with a bath and overhead shower (a spacious 3 x 3m). To the rear right of the sitting room is the door to the second bedroom (currently furnished with two single beds) (5 x 3m) with ceiling fan.
From the dining room area, to the left, 3 steps lead down to the main bedroom (5 x 3.5m). The walls have pretty rock and beam features exposed within the traditional white plaster walls. The ensuite bathroom is 3 x 2.5m with a large, modern walk-in shower with glass shower screen and a heated towel rail.

This beautiful house most likely dates from around the 1950’s or earlier, and has been beautifully restored to bring out the best of the old features without sacrificing modern comforts.
