2 bedrooms – 2 bathrooms (one outside) – pool – small outbuilding – beautiful orchard plot on two flat levels – delightful location – just 10-15 minutes from the coast  RESERVED

A wonderful little house in very good condition, with a lovely garden on two flat levels, ideal for keen gardeners, and all within a few minutes of Velez-Malaga and the coast.

For those looking for a retirement home or permanent move, or for a place to spend time in the Spanish sunshine and work on a delightful garden with plenty of fruit trees, Casa Maravilla is the perfect choice.

Casa Maravilla is the last house in a little line of country cottages.   The area is quiet and peaceful, and often the tinkling sound of the goatbells can be heard in the nearby fields.

Located in a beautiful country location, one of a little line of country cottages, in a peaceful, natural environment, this lovely property offers tranquility, comfort and happiness!  It has a track from the road to reach it of 1Km, although about half the track has concrete.

Double gates lead into the fully fenced property, with space for parking a number of cars within the plot, by the gates.  The upper garden area is mainly planted up as a garden, with a pretty walkway through the middle, lined with fruit trees, including loquat, lemon, and a beautiful macadamia nut tree, leading to the outbuilding.  The outbuilding consists of an outside bathroom (requires a little renovation), a traditional bread oven, a small store room with a large window (could make a little office with a nice view of the garden or even a children’s spare bedroom), and an additional store room.  Along the edge of the garden area a series of beautiful flowering plants including a magnificent wisteria, bourganvilla and other creepers, plumbago,  campsis, and dama de noche, next to pool.

Some steps lead down to the lower garden, more of a traditional orchard, with a variety of fruit trees, including mango, avocado, fig, pomegranate, oranges and lemons, as well as an almond tree and an olive tree.  The bank between the two garden levels is planted with vines producing succulent grapes in the Autumn and steps from here also lead back up to the pool terrace on the top level.

The house has a dining terrace to the front, facing South with beautiful grapevines offering shade in the Summertime and plentiful grapes towards the end of Summer, and from here the front door leads into the spacious kitchen/dining room (6 x 4m).  The kitchen is fully fitted and has a brick built fireplace.  To the right, an archway leads through to the living room, with a sloping ceiling with beams and a corner woorburner. There is also a door from the living room leading to the rear covered porch and pool terrace.

From the kitchen, an opening leads to the two bedrooms and the bathroom.  Bedroom 1 is around 4x3m with a door leading out to the rear covered porch and pool terrrace, and a shower unit of 2 x 1m.  Bedroom 2 is 3 x 3m, also with a door leading outside.  In between the two, the bathroom has been divided into the bathroom itself with bath and overhead shower, plus wash basin, and the WC next door (total size 3 x 1.5m).

The rear porch, or covered terrace, is around 2 x 8m, and overlooks the pool, (12m2) with a tiled sunbathing area all around it.  The views from the terrace are beautiful, looking across the countryside and fruit orchards.

The house has air conditioning in the living room, mains electricity and town water.  There is also irrigation water, although at present there are restrictions on the irrigation water due to the low levels of rainfall.

A beautiful property now for sale at a very reasonable price.
