For sale direct from the owner!
This charming country farmhouse is located in the hills above Almuñecar and La Herradura on the Costa Tropical. The house, the outside spaces and gardens all benefit from sea views and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
The property has been renovated to a high standard and comes with modern comforts which make this an ideal home for year-round enjoyment – namely, the underfloor heating on the ground floor! Equally, the house could be used as a “lock and leave” holiday home.
The layout of the property has been carefully considered and makes it ideal for accommodating friends and family. The master bedroom and en-suite bathroom is accessed separately from the two guest bedrooms and family bathroom. This means guests and owner have their own privacy and a degree of independence.
In addition to the 3 bedrooms within the main house, there is a large garage building located to the West end of the property which is where you can find bedroom 4. The garage block is split into a garage space and bedroom, comes with a cloakroom and has access to the private patio. This could easily become a self-contained apartment.
Indeed, the house also comes with a two-level stable block located at the East end which could also be converted into further accommodation subject to the necessary permits. This building is not yet renovated and therefore can be designed to suit future needs.
Reaching the property is an adventure and takes you through typical Spanish countryside in this mountainous area. A head for heights may be required for some but it’s worth it for the panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and the Meditteranean Sea!
Enjoying the views, seeing birds soaring above you and below really connects you to the environment and you can appreciate the change in seasons, the beauty of the area and the traditional values of life in rural Spain.

Layout of the property…
The property is oriented to the south and enjoys breath taking views to the sea and surrounding countryside.
The stone built farmhouse is entered via a large hallway – stairs rise from the hallway to the guest bedrooms 2 and 3 as well as a bathroom which serves both rooms.
To the left of the hallway, you enter into a large, light and bright living room with views to the south, a feature wood burning stove and beamed ceiling. There is a staircase accessed from the living room which goes up to the master bedroom suite – a master bedroom with built in wardrobes, air-conditioning/heating unit and en-suite bathroom/
To the right of the entrance hall, you enter into a dining room which, in turn leads to the kitchen. There is an attractive stable door which gives access to the large front terrace.
All the bedrooms have ample, fitted cupboards. The fourth bedroom, with a cloakroom, has a separate entrance off the garage and could also be used as an office or utility room. This room leads to a small enclosed patio.
The large and well-established terrace takes in the best of the views – facing South towards the sea and across the surrounding countryside.
The terrace is large enough to accommodate outside dining tables, soft seating areas and comes with a built in barbecue and bread oven.
Scented plants predominate the terrace and the land around the house is planted with low maintenance fruit and flowering trees. Beyond that the land is uncultivated – there would be room for a swimming pool subject to the usual permissions. At the top of the land is a water storage deposit of 100,000 litres.
There is a two level stable (unrenovated) at the East end of the terrace and a garage block at the West end of the house.
The Costa Tropical, Almunecar and La Herradura
This stunning stretch of coastline has been a popular destination for all nationalities over the years – partly due to the beauty of the area and partly due to the temperate climate it enjoys throughout the year.
The area is relatively unspoilt compared with many of the more developed areas along the coast of Southern Spain and this is mainly due to the high level of agriculture in the area which provides Avocados, Mangos and Custard Apples for the Spanish and International markets.
The historical town of Almuñecar has excellent facilities (shopping, restaurants, bars, schools and medical facilities) and is only a 15 mins (8km) drive. Closer (4km), is the hamlet of Torrecuevas which has a school, church, doctor, chemist, small supermarket and two cafe/bars.
Airports of Malaga and Granada can be reached within 75mins.
Adjoining 1 bedroom cottage also for sale…
Adjacent to the property as described above is a self-contained, detached cottage which comes with 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a light, bright living/dining and kitchen space.
Outside, the property has its own entrance, parking and terrace areas as well as 550M2 of gardens and is south/south west facing and also enjoys terrific views.
This property would be a useful addition to the property above as it could be added to the guest accommodation.
This property has its own deeds and services and is available at a cost of €110,000 for the freehold. If the main house and separate cottage are of interest as a combined sale, the owners would be very willing to discuss an offer.
