An extended family can live together yet independently or a tourism project is very viable
Extended family can live comfortably together here with independence. Or, a tourism business could easily be created: This impressive and substantial property located on the Rural Urbanisation of Fuente Amarga, Almogia is hard to rival by way of build quality, built area, separate buildings plus independent owner and guest accommodation, with a superb 10M x 4M swimming pool.
Because the property is located on the very edge of a Rural Urbanisation, the land is classified ‘Urban’ (rather than ‘Rustic’ which is more common in the countryside). Equally, the plot size is a generous at just over 5,000M2. This means the amount of residential accommodation allowed on the plot is substantial. Therefore, if a buyer wishes to create two additional guest cottages out of the detached snooker house and detached garage, this will be allowed. A simple application for a ‘change of use’ with reform licence/project is all that is needed. A holiday complex of main villa, and three holiday lets can easily be created here… A guest annex and two guest cottages all set around the large swimming pool with outstanding panoramic countryside views. Equally, an high end B&B or guest house are viable options also. The conservatory/sun room is the perfect place to host guests for breakfast and dinner, for example. There is also the poolside bar with permanently covered Gazeebo to add to the opportunities to make a lot of money from this property, if that is what is desired.
The build quality is very high for all structures on the plot – all built to the same high standard as the villa. This means little to no structural work is required to make changes to the snooker house or garage (except for internal dividing walls as required).
Great legal situation due to the property having a Licence of First Occupation
The property has a Licence of First Occupation (licencia de primera occupacion) issued by Almogia town hall, so, this fabulous home can be purchased easily and with peace of mind by a buyer’s lawyer for the buyers themselves. Also if desired, the LFO makes applying for a reform/change of use licence effortless.
Location in brief
The property is conveniently located, just 35 mins’ drive from Malaga airport but without any aeroplane noise (because the flight path is several valleys away where the town of Alora is located).
The property is set in pristine countryside, surrounded by arable farm land with magnificent limestone mountains in the distance. Of course, there are other villas on the urbanisation but this villa has a prime setting that gives privacy and uninterrupted panoramic views.
The hamlet of Pastelero is only 3 minutes drive by car and here you will find two bar/restaurants. One is a venta serving local and simple cuisine and the other is slightly more ‘up market,’ and serves classic cuisine but with a more exciting twist.
The historic, Moorish pueblo blanco of Almogia is 15 minutes drive away and here you will find a large supermarket, smaller shops and a 24 hour medical centre with on-stand-by ambulance.
The larger town of Villanueva de la Concepcion, located at the foot of the El Torcal Natural Park and mountain range is 17 minutes drive away and here you have everything you need for modern day-to-day living to include a selection of 14 bar restaurants.
The property comprises:
The main villa
3 double bedrooms
2 bathrooms (1 en-suite)
Huge living/dining room with wood burning stove
Very spacious country kitchen with an office/study area through an arch
Utility/laundry room with storage
Integrated guest annex
1 double bedroom.
Large fully fitted kitchen.
Access to the annex is down a hallway within the main villa. There is a door that can be locked to separate the annex to make it completely private and independent from the villa (equally, the door could be bricked up). The annex has its own front door. The accommodation consists of a double bedroom, bathroom and large, fully fitted kitchen that could easily become a kitchen/living/dining room.
Of course, the guest annex accommodation could be absorbed into the villa to make the villa 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The large annex kitchen could become a teenager’s den or perhaps a cinema room, library or TV room.
Independent snooker house/games room
Currently it houses a full-size snooker table, houses other games and has a bar area.
Swimming pool terrace
Large swimming pool with Roman steps going down into the water, 10M x 4M.
Shower room with w.c.
Brick built sun pergola for full shade – ideal for dining or lounging.
Huge terrace area for soaking up the sun and enjoying the views.
Independent double garage
Ample space for two cars plus storage.
Views & privacy
Views of immaculately tended arable farm land plus almond, olive and oak trees.
The property at the very edge of the urbanisation where it borders ‘Rustic’ land that cannot be developed.
The terraces and pool areas are completely private – ideal for soaking up the sun and enjoying the views.
A small amount of the land as you enter the property (alongside the driveway) has shrubs and succulents the rest of the land is very low maintenance.
A large amount of the land is simply cut by a sit on lawn mower.
The entire plot is fenced and gated so, ideal for keeping pets, especially dogs.
It is possible, two horses could be kept on this land and subject to planning permission, stables could be built. Riding out from the property takes you in to un-spoilt countryside with mule tracks that go all the way to Valle de Abdalajis and also to Alora. You can quickly get off the country roads.
Broadband internet via line-of-sight to a mast with sufficient speed to stream television.
Quality building – built to a high specification
Project managed from beginning to end by the current owner who completed the build in 2004.
The current owner is a stone mason and he did a lot of the work himself to a very high standard.

There is a roof void for the circulation of air.
The windows are all double glazed and have fly/mosquito screens fitted.
The wood burning stove is large and powerful and the heat is piped along the wall of the living room/hallway behind. This heats the hallway and with bedroom doors open, the heat goes into these rooms.
There are panel eco radiators throughout the entire property.
Air-conditioning is fitted (separate units where needed).
Access roads to the urbanisation and throughout are kept well by the town hall.
