Comares, Malaga
Ref. No.:
Land or garden:


3 bedrooms – 1 bathroom – large covered terrace with views – pool – around 2000m2 of land (currently showing as 1049m2) – private and peaceful – good access – right on the ‘Gran Senda’ walking route

A lovely, peaceful and simple country house on a totally usable plot of land that only gently slopes downhill, with beautiful views across the river valley and hills beyond, a swimming pool, and unspoilt, natural countryside all around with plenty of mature trees.

Casa Garza (Garza means heron, as many are seen over the river valley), is ideal for anyone looking for peace, tranquility and simplicity, without having to climb into the mountains and not too high up.  The property benefits from being right next to the Gran Senda de la Axarquía, a 650Km walk across the countryside of Malaga province that is becoming popular with walkers.

A short track (just a few metres) leads to the house, wtih only two neighbouring houses (both around 40 metres away) and beautiful, natural and fairly wooded countryside all around.  The property is 10 minutes from the lovely little country town of Riogordo which has good facilities, and is 15 minutes from Benamargosa, and the same from Comares. There are two nearby country bar/restaurants, one within walking distance.

There is a parking space by the front gate and the entire property is fenced.  The front of the house has a large covered terrace (7 x 3m) plus open terrace area beyond (8 x 3m) and this is the perfect place to spend most of one’s time, in a climate which permits so much outdoor living.  The views here are beautiful and calming, with trees in the garden and the rolling hills in the background.

The front door from here leads into a lovely, spacious living room (5 x 4.5m) with a modern pellet stove, very convenient for winter warmth.  An Arab-style archway separates the fully functioning kitchen from this room (4 x 2m).  To the rear of the living room a corridor leads to the other rooms in the house, with bedroom 1 and bedroom 2  both 3.5 x 2.5m, and bedrooom 3 at the far end (3.5 x 3m), next to the bathroom (2 x 1.2m).  The house has no air conditioning but the rooms have ceiling fans, perfect for hotter summer days.

The garden is fully accessible with little paths leading down to the pool, currently fenced off, with terracing for sunbathing around it, and to the many little areas that make up this lovely garden.  there are plenty of mature trees and fruit trees of different types.  For any gardener, there is scope for creating something magical here, or for encouraging nature, which is equally beautiful.  There is a built in outdoor kitchen/barbecue area with a built-in, tiled table under a large olive tree and plenty of space for a vegetable garden too.

The property has mains water, a 2 x 1.5m store shed, a pool house below the pool of around 2.5 x 3m (the pool has a new pump too), and a chicken run.

A delightful property ideal for relaxing and enjoying the natural environment, walking and enjoying outdoor life.  It would also work very well as a holiday rental property.
