There is an outside kitchen with connection for a gas BBQ and it has electric and water supply, work tops, storage and a sink.
The rear courtyard can be accessed from the kitchen as well as from the front terrace. This secluded space comes with a bread /pizza oven and wood store underneath, a paella oven and another BBQ. This space is typically Spanish and again has water and electric and a fitted marble table for dining.
The gardens are easily maintained with plenty of indigenous plants including Yuca, Palms and succulents.
There is a wide range of trees providing fruit including fig, lemon, orange, mandarin and pomegranate.
There are more than 80 olive trees and these are currently looked after by a local Spanish farmer who comes to tend them, prune them and collect them. Imagine your own olive oil!
There is a large storage/workshop space with 2 x work benches and again, this is supplied with water and electric.
The gardens are entered via a gated driveway with a parking area, sufficient space for visitors and a car port.
Campanillas, Santa Rosalia and Malaga…
Campanillas is an interesting blend of urban living and countryside and is actually the 9th district within the city of Malaga.
Some parts of Campanillas are very modern filled with new build properties but this part, just north of Santa Rosalia is an ideal blend of semi suburban and countryside.
There are neighbours in the area which creates a friendly community but there’s also the space to enjoy the countryside and views.
The benefits of being able to live in a peaceful environment but with a huge array of services and amenities on hand really is a rarity…. a short drive to high quality hospitals, all your shopping needs catered for locally and pick up a bus into Malaga city! This lovely home really does offer the best of both worlds!
