A traditional, rustic style country house set amongst a cluster of cottages 20 minutes inland from the sea on the Southern coastal hills

This very pretty rustic country cottage is located along a good concrete country lane, 7 minutes’ drive (3.2Kms) from the village of Triana, in the sub tropical valley of Velez Malaga.  Here there are mangos and avocado trees growing in their thousands along the warm hillsides of the valley.

Velez-Malaga and the coast at Torre del Mar is around 15/20 minutes’ drive and also within 10 minutes are the villages of Los Romanes and Viñuela.

The property
This little cluster of rustic cottages could not be more authentic, located along what was once a mule track leading down from the hills towards the coast.  The houses here date back well into the last century and now owned by a mixture of Spanish and foreign owners looking for the real Spain!  It is warm, peaceful and quiet, and quite relaxing!

There is a shared parking area with an allocated parking spot for one car (but there are other nearby places to park for any visitors).  A garden gate leads to the West facing terraces of the property.  These consist of a lower garden terrace at the gate, with a walled terrace behind it accessed via a door (currently holding a jacuzzi which is sold with the property) and an upper terrace (just two steps up) to the dining terrace with wonderful views to the Western hills and countryside, and magnificent at sunset!  The two open terraces are 8.5 x 4.5m in total and the walled terrace is around 4 x 4m. For anyone wanting a pool, it might be possible to convert the current walled patio into a pool, by lowering and waterproofing the walls.

From the dining terrace, double wooden doors lead into the kitchen.  This is an open plan, fully fitted kitchen and beyond is the dining area.  The entire kitchen/dining area is 8 x 3m with original beams on the ceiling.

To the right of the kitchen/dining area, an arch through the thick walls leads to the living room, with double wooden doors leading out to the South patio garden.  The living room is 7.5 x 3.5m, with beams and a brick surround fireplace installed with a traditional woodburner for Winter evenings.

At the far end of the living room is the door to Bedroom 1, up a few steps.  This room is 3.5 x 3m and has a lovely wooden window with views to the sea.

Back in the dining area, to the far end is a doorway on the left into the bathroom.  This is 3 x 2.5m with a bath and separate shower unit, electric panel heating unit and two beamed wooden windows.  Another opening from the rear of the dining area leads into the ‘office’ (3.25 x 2m excluding the stairway) and stairs leading upstairs.

At the top of the stairs is a good sized landing area, large enough to have a sofabed as extra accommodation, and open to the stairwell, (3.25 x 2m excluding stairwell) with a curtained opening into Bedroom 2 (3 x 3m).  This bedroom also has a view towards the sea.  At the other end of the landing is a doorway out to the upper terrace.  This terrace is in two parts of 8 x 3.5m and 4 x 3m with built-in seating area and views to the sea and countryside.

Back downstairs and through the living room door is the South patio garden.  This consists of a patio area for table and chairs and has flowering shrubs, wall climbers and bushes all around.  A curved garden wall with little garden gate forms the boundary.  The gate leads out to a little lane that meanders up the side of the little cluster of houses – the ideal place to chat to your neighbours as they stroll down the lane!

The house is sold fully furnished.

For those wishing to live a true country life and enjoy the ‘real Spain’, this could be the place for you!
