Land or garden:


3 houses in one – 6/7 bedrooms – 3 bathrooms – separate 60m2 garage (classed as a house) – 9 x 5m pool – over 19,000m2 of useable land – beautiful views – excellent access

A very large house in a large estate in the mountains to the North of Alcaucin village, half an hour from the beach, with the very best views in the area, from the mountains, right down to the sea – ideal for redevelpment as a country retreat or tourist business.

Finca El Señorito was built in the ’70’s, in the heart of the gentle hills rising up from the Mediterranean, on the ‘sunny’ side of the beautiful municipality of Alcaucin in clear view of Mount Maroma, the highest mountain peak in Malaga province.  Access is easy, with a short track leading directly to the house from the main Zafarraya road, around 30 minutes from the coast at Torre del Mar and within one hour of Malaga.

The Plot
A gated driveway leads onto the finca, which is made up of just over 19,000m2 of land.  The land is practically entirely flat, and planted mainly with mature olive trees (over 100 olive trees).  There is no part of the plot that is not usable and it would be ideal for further gardening and farming, keeping animals, and growing vegetables and fruit trees.

Much of the plot is categorised as irrigated, which has more flexible rules than rustic dryland.  There is a natural water source in the form of a well and a 10,000L water storage tank.

The plot also has moscatel grapevines in abundance, almond trees, orange, lemon, fig, peach, pear, plum, pomegranate, nut and cherry trees.  There are also pine trees and a variety of flowering climbers and shrubs across the land and in the gardens, along with a vegetable plot and chicken run.

The property is also on mains water.

The main house, garage or casita, and gardens and pool

Built in the 1970’s, the main house is 300m2 on two floors, currently split into three living units.  To the front is a garden with orange trees, a pond with fish, and beyond, the 9 x 5m pool and pool terrace, all with beautiful mountain and country views, as well as a glimpse of the sea.

The house has a large covered terrace overlooking this garden, the perfect place to enjoy outside meals and relaxation.

Unit 1
Accessed from the 40m2 covered terrace, the first unit occupies the entire ground floor, consisting of a large hallway or dining room, large separate kitchen, huge living room with woodburner, double bedroom, office or second bedroom, and a store room with garage door to the rear.

From the downstairs hallway on unit 1, stairs lead up to :

Unit 2
The top of the stairs lead up to an upstairs living room with a door to the upper balcony terrace stretching the length of the house.  This unit has 2 double bedrooms, a third bedroom that could become a kitchen as it has the plumbing and outlets required, currently behind a false wall, plus a spacious bathroom.

Unit 3
The final unit is accessed either via a door at the far end of the upstairs balcony terrace, or via a door that leads down external steps to the side of the building.  This unit consists of living room, separate kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside, there is a 60m2 garage categorised legally as a house, and with potential for conversion.

Although the interior of the house is currently rather old fashioned in style, it would not be difficult to update the entire property and refurnish it.  And with the versatility of the interior of the building, the potential for development of the garage, and possible ability for placing one or two safari tents or yurts on the land, this property would be ideal for anyone wishing to develop it into a tourist complex, activity, learning or yoga centre, or similar.
