For sale direct from owners!
This charming 2 bed, 1 bath villa is located on the very pretty rural urbanisation of Fuente Amarga. Just 2 mins’ drive to Pastelero where there are two superb local bar/restaurants. 15 mins’ drive away to the white Moorish village of Almogia and 17 mins’ drive to the bustling town of Villanueva de la Concepcion in the foothills of the El Torcal Mountain range and Natural Park.
This villa offers a stress free purchase and future due to its ‘Urban’ land status. It can also be extended subject to the usual permits. So, it is feasible for another bedroom and bathroom to be added and you could extend the living space into the covered porch area.
This would add value to the property but as it stands, the house is very desirable – they are just suggestions!
Adjacent to this villa is a building project where the neighbours are extending their property so while the work continues, there is some disruption but it just illustrates what is possible on urban land.
The owners have recently created this video of the villa to give you a great feel for the property…
This charming villa would make the ideal:
♦ Retirement property because the accommodation is on one level and the garden is very manageable.
♦ Full time home for a couple who want to be part of a community yet private from neighbours.
♦ A holiday home that is very easy to lock-up-and-go.
♦ A holiday home that is also a holiday rental (as property management companies are in the area).
♦ A purchase with a view to extend the villa. The owners already have some building permits in place.
This lovely villa has amazing views and is higher up than most of the villas on the very spaced out rural urbanisation. The views are far reaching and take in mountain ranges and pristine farm land that is well tended and the crops change colour with the seasons.
The villa has 2 bedrooms and 1 large shower room and the master bedroom is a good size double, the second bedroom is a standard size double. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The villa is beautifully presented throughout, has current decor and requires no work at all. The open-plan living/kitchen/dining area features an arch which divides the areas and the lounge area benefits from a substantial wood burning stove with a very pretty tiled fire surround that complements the villa. The kitchen has a modern fitted kitchen and is well appointed plus new French doors lead out on to the pool terrace with the views and light coming into the home.
Under the pool is a large storage area that houses the pool pump and it is a spacious under-build where a lot of things can be stored. Also on the land is a sizeable shed for tools and gardening equipment. There is also a log store, laundry area and gas store located next to the property.
The villa has a covered porch immediately outside the front door with a solid tiled roof. On the side of the villa is a connected wood and cane pergola. Then next to the pool is a large covered alfresco dining area that takes in amazing views across the pool to the natural and beautifully wild area behind the property. Or look West across pristine farm land and out to the magnificent mountain ranges beyond.
You can seek sun or shade from sun rise to sun set at this property and the pool terrace area is huge with very easy maintenance. There is garden area below the terraced area but it is low maintenance as it is planted with Mediterranean shrubs and succulents.
The countryside views from this villa really are very special and you get these with the land having ‘Urban’ classification providing the best-of-both-worlds… Countryside, views, peace, privacy, access off tarmac, close proximity to two very good bar/restaurants and the opportunity to make changes to the size of the villa if you wish (which is not permissible on ‘Rustic’ land).
Buying a property on ‘Urban’ land is also a lot easier and more straight forward than buying a home on ‘Rustic’ land. The worries and fears about legal paperwork do not apply here. You can go forward and buy with confidence and peace of mind. The property was originally built in 1989 and due to its age, it does not have a Licence of First Occupation. The owners will not be providing AFO as there is no need to do so – the house is on urban land, has been paying IBI since it was built and has all mains connections.
The geographical area where the villa sits is very special and has to be one of the most beautiful parts of Andalucia. It is largely unspoilt by construction yet has good amenities and choice of bars and restaurants close by.
The villa is connected to Broadband Internet with a speed fast enough to stream international TV if desired. There are telephone lines in Fuente Amarga and if a land-line was required with Broadband, it should be possible to contact Telefonica to organise connection to a land-line. If UK Sky TV is desired, a dish can be installed and this can be provided. Equally, a dish can be installed to received European TV channels from many different countries.
