What makes this property special is being elevated above other properties with views that are hard to rival. Equally, the hamlet of Pastelero with two superb bar/restaurants serving local cuisine to a high standard for very reasonable prices is so close by. Then the bustling and lively village of Villanueva de la Concepcion that can be seen from the house is under 10 mins’ drive.

Tourism opportunities are very viable at this property because the accommodation is very flexible. It could accommodate all manner of tourism ventures. The property is located in an area known as, ‘the cross-roads of Andalucia’ and this offers easy access to the major cities of Andalucia, yet set in stunning countryside… Malaga, Granada, Ronda, Cordoba and Sevilla can all be easily reached. Very soon the AVE high speed railway will be running out of Antequera city centre.
The rooms in the house include; 3 or even 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite to the master bedroom), a large lounge with wood burning stove, a separate dining room, a fully fitted kitchen, study/office with wood burning stove, large utility room and attached workshop/storeroom.

The second double bedroom is accessed off the living room.
Two further rooms are equally accessed via another door from the living room… One of these rooms is currently used as an office and the other is the third double bedroom.
Broadband Internet with WiFi is connected. The land-line phone is a real bonus as few country homes have this luxury. UK Sky TV is still connected via the satellite dish and this can be re-aligned for use by other European nationalities if required.
The large swimming pool is completely private… 9M x 4M and looks over the top of other properties and offers far reaching views over mountain ranges inland from Malaga and out to sea at Los Alamos that is West of Malaga city and Torremolions. The current owners obtained a permit to build the pool before the law changed (no longer permitting the building of swimming pools in the countryside of Andalucia), so, the pool is completely legal and a huge bonus to have.
There is plenty of terracing for enjoying the sunshine but with plenty of shaded areas too plus a covered alfresco dining area.
Outbuildings include; the large double garage with lighting and power, a further single garage, plus a shed for storage.

Access to the property is just 60 meters of gravel off a small tarmac country road. Wrought iron gates greet you and the whole property is completely fenced. There is parking for up to 6 cars and room for 4 or 5 more outside of the gates on the driveway.
A separate olive grove is located outside of the fenced area and across the country lane (however, part of the property). Currently, an informal arrangement exists for the neighbour to collect the olives, however this can easily be cancelled at the time of purchase if the new owner wishes to harvest the olives themselves and press for single estate olive oil or collect money for the olives from one of the many local co-operatives.
The property is completely private, with breathtaking views which change colour with the seasons. Unless it is hazy the sea at Torremolinos some 30 kilometres away is quite visible and on very clear days, especially in the winter, when they are snow capped, the Sierra Nevada mountains can be seen 90 kilometres away.
The hamlet of Pastelero, where there are 2 very good bar/restaurants is 1 kilometre away. These bars are very well renowned for both menu del dia (3 or 4 course home cooked meals for lunch with drinks for less than €10) as well very popular evening meals and BBQs using local produce. People drive out of the cities to eat at these restaurants at the weekends.

The village does not die ‘out of season.’ In Villanueva de la Concepcion, there are no seasons, it is a fun place to be year round with a feria, fiesta or national holidays to look forward to almost every month. It is a working village that thrives because there is work… several factories manufacturing underwear, agriculture of all sorts thrives, metal works, olive mills, a business park and the list goes on. Of course, Malaga city is a short drive South and Antequera city a short drive North.
The very historic city of Antequera is approx. 35 minutes’ drive away with World Heritage Status for the Dolmens. The architecture in Antequera is outstanding and beautiful.
