Land or garden:


Currently 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, on top floor, lower floor undeveloped – plot of 3123m2 – beautiful views – 20 mins to coast – 50 mins to Malaga city

A large house (360m2 in total) dating from 1998, offering accommodation on one level, plus a whole lower level with garage and warehouse/store space, perfect for a studio, or for conversion into a second house

Located in the countryside in the hills below Canillas de Aceituno, Casa Villarubia offers peace and tranquility, and the possibility of internal improvement, plus development of the lower floor.  It is set in a plot of 3123m2 of land, of which there is a part that is totally flat and ideal for a vegetable plot or gardens, plus a pool, and the rest slopes up a steep hillside.

There are lovely views from the property looking mainly facing South/SouthWest and access is good via a concrete road and a track of just a few metres, with two driveways, one to the garage and lower level, and the other to the main house on a higher level.

From the parking area, the drive leads up to the open paved patio, a lovely, private space, ideal for outdoor living.  A side path leads around to the rear of the house where there is an additonal, small patio area.

From the patio, there are two doors into the upper level and main section of the house.  The first leads into a living/dining/kitchen area, (7 x 4m) plus a huge fireplace, with a door at the far end leading onto the covered, arched terrace to the front.  This area can be used for entertaining friends without having to enter the main house,or it could be adapted into a studio apartment, classroom, or whatever is required.  At the far end is a door onto the main covered terrace with arches over a beautiful view.

Returning to the front patio, there also double doors lead into the main living room (6 x 3m) with a fireplace against the left hand wall.  From here, a large arch leads into a beautiful, fully fitted kitchen/dining room (6 x 3m) with a door into a useful store room (3 x 1m) to the right.  From here, a door leads out onto the main covered terrace.

The covered terrace is a spacious 9 x 5m, the perfect place to spend time, to dine, entertain, or relax.  The arches overlook a beautiful view of the valley and countryside below.

Returning to the main living room, to the far end of the room are two bedrooms, one following on from the other.  It would be perfect to remove the partition wall between these two rooms to make one very large bedroom (7 x 3m) and possibly add a new, en-suite bathroom within this space.  Also from the living room , a door leads into another room, which could be a reading room or additional living area (4.5 x 3m).  From here is access to the bathroom (3 x 2.5m), and to an additional two bedrooms (4 x 4m and 4 x 3m).  These two rooms could be made independently accessible by creating a small hallway and new doors into each room, rather than accessing one through the other.

Below, on the lower level is a huge space divided into four large spaces, taking up the entire footprint of the house above.  This area could be adapted to suit the requirements of the new owners, be it a large workshop with store rooms, or a downstairs apartment with its own access and parking area.

This lovely house in glorious countryside offers plenty of potential for anyone looking for a spacious country house where they can alter or adapt to suit their own requirements over time.
