Land or garden:


4+ bedrooms – 2+ bathrooms – plenty of space for further rooms – two sections – inner patios – beautiful location – over 900m2 build set in 100,000m2 of land dedicated to fields and woods 

A simply breathtaking, ancient cortijo in beautiful countryside, set on an estate of 100,000m2 of land.  With the many nature trails around this beautiful, unspoilt area, this property would make a perfect equestrian retreat.

Cortijo El Jaral is located on an estate of 100,000m2 (more land can be purchased) in stunning countryside, just North of the line of mountains to the South of which the land drops dramatically down towards the coast, through Axarquía.  The location is peaceful, with good access, and close to nature in all directions.  There is ample parking for any number of vehicles, and a garage to one side of the parking area.  The garage (7 x 4m) has stairs at the far end leading up to a room of 4 x 4 with a panoramic window over the land – potentially this could be an office, of this entire building could be converted into accommodation or an events venue, or a tackle room for horses.

From the parking area, a large walled garden, (10 x 9m), partly laid to garden and partly to patio, leads to an entrance lobby through a wide archway.  From here are two doors to left and right, and ahead, the entrance to the main inner patio, and with a further walled patio beyond.

To the left of the entrance lobby:
A door leads into a large living room with windows over the patio, and a large fireplace at the far end (9 x 3m).  A staircase leads up to a landing, with a door to a terrace, one bedroom (4 x 3m) and a bathroom (2 x 3m).  The terrace is open and has views over the buildings, patios and countryside beyond (6 x 2m).  This wing of the building could be bedrooms, or a separate annexe.

To the right of the entrance lobby:
The door leads into a large inner hallway with a wide, sweeping staircase to the right.  Walking past the staircase, the corridor leads to a downstairs bathroom (3 x 2m), and to a door to a second garage (6 x 5m) with large doors at the far end leading out to the main gardens.  This whole area has enormous potential as a further apartment or guest rooms.

Also at the end of the corridor are large doors leading into the magnificent, ancient main living area of the house, with original floors, huge windows and beams on the ceiling.  This area consists of two sections; the kitchen/dining room (9 x 3m) and the living room (9 x 3m) with a fireplace at the end, cobbled areas on the floor and large doors out to the main gardens.

Back in the hallway, taking the stairs leads to a landing. To the left at the top of the stairs is a bathroom (4 x 2m), and bhond, to the left a large inner room(5 x 3m) leaing to two large bedrooms (4 x 3m and 8 x 3m) with an additional area of 1 x 3m at the far end that could be another bathroom.  To the right of the landing is a door to another huge room (8 x 4.5) which could be subdivided into two rooms.

The main garden is at present semi abandoned, home to a number of dogs, and some chickens.  The whole area is fenced and flat, and could be made elegant and beautiful with mature trees, a wonderful shady place to escape to and enjoy, perhaps with the sound of cooling water features, paths with flowering borders, and perhaps a pool.  All of this can be created!

Cortijo El Jaral does require some work to transform it into an a elegant country home, perhaps a retreat or a top rate B&B, with horses, perhaps, or ideal for a yoga retreat or activity holidays.

More land is available for purchase.
