Looking for a gorgeous country property in Andalusia? Look no further than this 4-bedroom cottage near the Costa del Sol.
This house is as authentically Andalusian as you can get, dating back as it does to the 1830’s.
Although it was extensively renovated by the current owners in 2008, bringing it up to a high modern standard, it has lost none of its essential rural charm.
Set on a plot of 30.000m2 and with a mountain stream running through its heart, the property is accessed from the main coast-to-Casares road via a track that winds down a mountainside into a lush, green and very private valley where there’s literally nothing to hear but the sound of the breeze in the trees accompanied by sweet birdsong.
You feel as though you’re in deepest rural Andalusia, and yet the shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, schools, sports and entertainment facilities and all the other services and amenities Estepona and the rest of the Costa del Sol have to offer are just 15 minutes away.
The house itself is built across 2 storeys and features original sun-dried terracotta floors throughout.
The ground level comprises of a spacious typically country-style kitchen with a vaulted wooden-beamed ceiling, a living room with its own fireplace plus a bathroom and a double bedroom.
This bedroom has patio doors leading out to a south-facing terrace, which in turn leads out to the property’s main garden area.
A terrace and courtyard area immediately next to the house has plenty of room for al fresco dining/relaxing and a separate building adjoining this terrace has been converted into a guest bedroom replete with its own fireplace.
The upper level of the house comprises of 2 bedrooms with vaulted wooden ceilings, a bathroom and a south-facing terrace.
The views from here across the fields and on down the valley towards the Mediterranean sea are quite simply gorgeous.
The garden below possesses a distinctly wild charm perfectly in tune with its environment.
A set of bridges lead from the house and garden across the mountain stream to the rest of the land, where open fields ideal for keeping horses can be found along with steep mountainside ideal for cultivating a kitchen garden.
Finally, the property is blessed with mains water and electricity supplies, plus 2 water wells and a water deposit tank.
