For sale direct from owner!

A unique opportunity to own a town house in one of the most historic areas in beautiful Antequera city.  The town house within the city is close to; the Moorish castle, one of the oldest chapels in Spain, the cathedral and Roman archeological dig site.  Rarely do houses located in this highly sought after area of the city come up for sale.

Even more exciting is; the street level of the house is an Antequera certified self-catering apartment for tourists with balcony – ref: VFT/MA/02810 and below is the owner’s 3 bedroom apartment with courtyard, which can of course, be kept like this with bookings already in place until October thus far, or kept as one complete property, with one family using all 6 bedrooms and both floors. The choice is yours!  Furthermore, to make life even easier in an old town, the house has an integral garage and public parking area just paces away, on the other side of the road.

Antequera is one of the most historic cities in Spain, it has ‘world heritage status’ for the dolmens and is located directly inland from Malaga city, just North of the El Torcal Natural Park.  El Torcal has unique rock formations within the mountain range and walking trails throughout the natural park.  The historic city of Antequera alone and unique and astonishing El Torcal make this property exciting enough, however, Antequera is known as the, ‘cross roads of Andalucia.’  This is due to its central location within Andalucia and the easy connections to Malaga, Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla and Ronda.  The AVE, high speed railway line has already been laid and the central city train station is due to open in 2019.  This makes the holiday apartment with; a view of the Moorish puerta de Malaga (Southerly Moorish gate at the end of the castle walls) and north face of the El Torcal mountain range very desirable to tourists.  Equally, it makes the property very viable purchase for a buyer looking for some income when owning a Spanish home in a stunning city.

The property is 216M2 built over two levels:

♦  Street Level is the certificated holiday rental of 108M2 (3 beds/1 bath apartment) plus the garage on this level.
♦  Lower Level is the owner’s apartment of 108M2 (3 beds/1 bath apartment) plus the courtyard and outbuildings on this level.

The garage with a pedestrian door cut into it has integral access to the property for both levels.  This is a real bonus for the storage of wood to feed the wood burning stoves in each apartment, bikes and all manner of things that a garage can accommodate.  Just paces away is a very useful parking area, so there is no need to use the garage for cars owned by either the owner or holiday makers.

A short walk down the hill takes you into the very heart of Antequera city with the tourist office at the bottom of the road.  This is also where the tourist “train” starts and stops, guiding holiday makers around the streets of Antequera with ‘hop-on/hop-off’ tickets available.  The holiday rental at street level has a very high occupancy rate year round and attracts global tourists.  It is a nice little earner to supplement semi-retirement ownership with a holiday apartment above OR ownership of a holiday home that ‘pays its way’ having the holiday rental above!  All the hard work of getting the difficult to obtain ‘Casa Antequera’ official holiday letting licence has been done for the buyer and transferance of the licence into the buyers name can be organised by the buyer’s lawyer.  If the new owner does not want to be ‘on-site’ all year round, there is someone known to the current owners who is very willing to do, ‘meet-and-greets,’ cleaning and change-overs.

The holiday letting accommodation/apartment at street level comprises:

A front door with porch and Moorish style tiling, entrance hallway, living/dining room with wood burning stove and window overlooking the street, fully fitted kitchen with drop-down breakfast table with a southerly aspect and view over the rooftops and across to the El Torcal mountain range, two large double/twin bedrooms and one smaller double bedroom (the twin room has a window overlooking the street and the master bedroom and smaller bedroom have southerly aspects with those lovely views).  All three bedrooms have air-conditioning units.  Access to a long, thin south facing balcony is via a glazed door in the master bedroom of the apartment and has far reaching views of historic rooftops, the southern end of the castle wall (with Moorish gateway) and part of the El Torcal mountain range.  Good sunsets can be appreciated from this balcony too.  On this level is the garage which the owners currently use as access to their lower apartment with a pedestrian door cut into the garage door.  This means, those holiday letting the street level apartment do not have to share a front door.  Of course, there is a door from the garage into the street level apartment.

The lower courtyard level, owner’s apartment comprises:

Access is via a door into the garage, then another door down a set of stairs arriving into the open-plan ‘L’ shaped kitchen/living/dining room with modern wood burning stove.  The courtyard is accessed off this room and comprises a high walled area that is tiled and set up for lounging and dining in sun or shade.  At the shaded end, where there is a porch arrangement with soft seating, a laundry room and also a store room are accessed by separate metal doors.  Back inside the lower ground level apartment are three bedrooms.  One is currently used as a large double – south facing with views over the rooftops and of the El Torcal mountain range, the second is set up as a large dressing room with built-in wardrobes and shelving (no window) and the third bedroom is currently used as a bedroom/office (no window).  Both ‘black bedrooms’ that do not have windows could have high level glazing installed into the wall to borrow light from the living area.  Next to the large bedroom is a generous size white bathroom with an obscured glazed window that faces south.

This property is all about location, having the best of both worlds scenario when it comes to being in the most historic part of the city yet having not only a garage but a large parking area just over the road where there is always a space to park, night or day.  The high elevation of the location also gives views and very quick and easy access out onto the mountain road that takes you north into the modern part of the city where the large supermarkets are located or south, around the El Torcal natural park and mountain range and down into the village of Villanueva de la Concepcion.

Being located so close to the centre of Antequera city means getting into a car is not necessary for many days in a row and for tourists, not necessary at all.  This is highly desirable when it comes to tourism.  Bus routes and train services can whisk tourists to all the major cities of Andalucia via high speed AVE or the slower trains.  There is a bus station in Antequera as well as a train station.

The city can be enjoyed in a traditional way, eating and drinking in very old eateries, enjoying local cuisine that has thrived in the area for generations, or there are more modern parts of the city where things can become more lively and fun can be had until the early hours.  During the summer, there is a fabulous ‘venue’ in the big park where live music is played and superb drinks and food are served.  In the grounds of the castle la alcazaba there are numerous music festivals throughout the year to include jazz, flamenco and more.

Antequera has more churches than any other town or city in Andalucia and many visitors come for this alone (fun can be had looking down onto the city from the castle with the game of, who can spot all 35 church spires).  Equally, visitors come to see the amazingly preserved dolmens with world heritage status and of course the Moorish architecture and the buildings that date from Christian occupation through to today where very modern buildings are constructed and fit well alongside the ancient.

There is a choice of two airports to be used for budget airlines – Malaga airport that is 45 mins’ drive away or Grananda which is equally approx. 45 mins’ drive.

The coastal beaches of Malaga city can be reached in 40 mins, or those East or West of the city in 45 to 50 mins.  There is a beach to suit everyone and every taste – those beaches backed by seafood restaurants to those backed by liviely beach bars and others with only sand dunes where naturists can achieve an all over tan!

The city of Antequera is month-by-month, year-by-year being found by more and more people and is now firmly “on the tourist map.”  It has to be one of Spain’s most beautiful cities and also one of the most easily accessed cities in Spain. Now is the time to buy in Antequera before prices rise with its popularity!

The owners welcome you to view their home to see for yourself if the two apartments work well for you and offer what you aspire to gain from this rare property in a highly sought after location.
