Here’s a property that doesn’t come on the market everyday: a grand 7-bedroom Spanish country ‘Cortijo’ for sale built in a traditional Andalucian style that simply oozes authentic southern rural Spanish charm.
The Cortijo is set amongst tall trees in an elevated position high above the championship Finca Courtesin Golf course on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
It’s also just 10 minutes by car to the beach, shops, bars, restaurants, schools, sports facilities, services and amenities of the coastal town of Estepona making it absolutely ideal for those seeking a slice of quiet, rural Andalucian living within easy reach of modern civilisation!
Accessed from the main coast-to-Casares road by its own private asphalted driveway the property is blessed with a large square ‘outer’ courtyard so typical of Andalucian cortijos.
This outer courtyard has 2 carports capable of housing 4 to 5 large vehicles, plus a tool room, a room for equestrian equipment and a set of double wooden doors leading to the inner courtyard of this extraordinary property.
This cobbled inner courtyard acts as the focal point of the property and provides various access points to the house itself.
On its western side, a covered porch with a spacious exterior living/relax area and an outdoor dining area leads in to the ‘west wing’ of the house.
Accessing the house via this doorway takes you in to a long living/dining room area with a sizeable fireplace.
To the right, there’s a separate formal dining room, again with its own fireplace.
From here, there’s a connecting door through to 1bedroom/bathroom staff quarters and a very grand kitchen indeed.
The kitchen, much like the rest of the house, is blessed with plenty of that life affirming Andalucian daylight.
(For those with green fingers will be glad to learn the property comes with its own kitchen garden, capable of producing quite a volume of indigenous and delicious vegetables pretty much all year round.)
The west wing of the property also provides access out to a covered terrace where an outdoor living area can be found and an uncovered terrace area with another exterior dining area.
A lawn leads from here over to the property’s swimming pool.
The south wing of the property is not only home to a second living room and fireplace, but also a guest bathroom and the first of the property’s main bedrooms, which comes with its own fireplace and is located next to a walk-in dresser and a cavernous marble bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath.
The upper floor is accessed via 2 separate sets of stairs at either end of the south wing which both lead up to a long hallway which spans the entire south wing and provides access to 3 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The views south across the garden, the rolling hillside and the Finca Courtesin golf resort to the sea from the bedroom and bathroom windows on this floor, and indeed the views from the hallway north across the inner courtyard to the mountains beyond are almost worth the asking price of this property alone.
Heading back down to the ground floor, the northern-most corner of the house features 2 further large double-height ceilinged bedrooms which share a bath/shower room and a dresser.
And finally, the built area of the house is completed by 7 stables and a courtyard for horses located next to a lemon and orange tree grove.
