For sale direct from the owners!
This unique country estate is being offered for sale for the first time ever – a charming and historic family home, the property is no longer being used fully and the Spanish owners wish to pass it on to new owners who can enhance and develop the property to provide a comfortable home for many years to come.
The property dates back about 150 years and is registered within the Catastro as early as 1900. The charm and character within the oldest parts of the property give you an insight into rural life within Spain – there are numerous nooks and crannies and features including a traditional fireplace in the kitchen, a cheese keep, ham drying areas and plenty of space for the animals which would have been an integral part of the family home.
Currently the property requires work – the existing layout can be retained but we expect most buyers to consider a project to convert the existing meters into a more conventional and modern layout. There are numerous new roofs which have ensured the property is fully water tight and secure. However, the layout is very traditional and whilst it is set across two floors of accommodation, there is no great flow to the rooms.
The property has approximately 200M2 of residential accommodation and a further 300M2 of barns, courtyard, garage and storage space.
One thing that will never change and are to be enjoyed thoroughly are the views – with very few neighbours in site, the property benefits from far reaching views in all directions. With more than 100,000M2 of land, the property comes with the potential for income from cereal crops, olives or any form of home grown produce. There is an existing “huerta” which provides fertile land for growing all manner of fruit and vegetables.
There is even a huge swimming pool although this is in need of some work to make it usable.
Our key features of this property include:
♦ Stunning location – close to A45 giving easy access to Antequera and Malaga
♦ Amazing views in all directions
♦ 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms
♦ 500M2 of built area and more than 100,000M2 of land

Antequera, El Torcal and Malaga
The location of this property is what sets it apart from many similar properties for sale further inland – the house is just a couple of minutes to the A45 motorway which connects Malaga and Antequera and provides easy access to the rest of Andalucia and Spain.
Antequera is an historic city with a rich cultural past and now combines this traditional environment with modern facilities such as the new hospital, high class restaurants and lots of shopping opportunities.
Malaga can be reached in around 30mins via the A45 making this an ideal location for people who want to enjoy this relaxed area but also want the hustle and bustle of the coast.
The house itself is located on the edge of the El Torcal Natural Park and wildlife is a constant reminder of the beauty and seclusion of the area.
