A traditional village house on three floors with plenty of original features, in a quiet, picturesque street in the country town of Colmenar, 30 minutes inland from Malaga city.

This delightful village house has the charm of a bygone age, still proudly displaying features that have long since been lost in many of these ancient village houses.  In excellent condition, the slightly old fashioned nature of this interesting property is part of its charm and character.

Located on a quiet street, with easy parking nearby and just a short walk from the town centre, the front door leads into an open plan living room(3.3×3.5) with dining room(4×3) beyond, a lovely room to enjoy every day life.  Beyond, a door leads into the small kitchen(2×2.5), which could be opened out into the dining room.  Beyond the kitchen, a door leads into a small patio area with a door to the left to a utility room(1×1.5) which has all the plumbing to convert it into a downstairs bathroom.  4 steps lead down to a ‘bodega'(2×1.8), ideal for storage of more than just good wine!  And 3 steps up lead to the lower terrace(2×2), with delightful views across the village and countryside.

Back in the living room, stairs lead up to the first floor, and onto a spacious landing(3×4), where the current owners also have beds for their grandchildren, for when extra space is needed.  Original wooden double doors lead to the right into a spacious, sunny bathroom(4×3), with tall, original wooden windows with wooden shutters overlooking the views.  This wonderful bathroom would look beautiful with some green house plants and maybe even details such as a colourful bookcase or shelves with original local pottery – a bathroom with a difference!

To the left of the landing, past built-in wardrobes, are long double wooden doors leading into bedroom 1(4×3.5).  This delightful room has original, ancient tiles in yellow, very typical of the time, and long, double wooden windows with shutters and blinds overlooking the pretty street to the front.

On the landing, a door hides a second staircase, taking us up to the top floor, and a small look-out terrace(1×1.5), currently occupied partly by a water storage tank, which could be moved.  Doors from here lead into a further landing, a room that perhaps could be used as an artist’s studio, or a study(3×2). There is a WC to one side, through a door, as well as a useful, very deep storage alcove. Beyond, tall, original double wooden doors lead into bedroom 2, a delightful and spacious room.  From here a door takes us out onto the final terrace, with lovely views over the village and the mountains beyond(4×4).

This delightful house is sold mainly furnished and is ready to be enjoyed immediately as a permanent or a holiday home.
