For sale direct from the owners!
This stunning country cortijo has been a labour of love for the current owners who have updated the property over the last 16 years to create a comfortable and stylish home and potential business. The flexibility is immense with a main home for the owners, three further holiday rental properties so whether you want to create income from rentals or have extended family that all want their independence, this property works for everyone!
The cortijo has been beautifully restored to retain as much of the original features and character of a traditional country home but the property has also benefitted from improvements to make life here, comfortable and with all the connectivity expected from the 21st Century.
The location of the property is perfect for those seeking peace and unspoilt countryside however, it is not isolated. A well-maintained track of 2.7km leads to the main A356 linking Casabermeja and Velez Malaga. This means you have both Casabermeja and Colmenar villages within easy reach for shopping, cultural events and dining options. Both villages have a wide range of services including supermarkets, banks, petrol stations and all the usual amenities expected from popular villages.
The access to the A45 motorway also means that Malaga, the airport and the rest of Andalucía are easily reached.
Flexibility to suit all tastes and uses…
The way the property has been updated and designed offers a great deal of flexibility for new owners. Currently, the property consists of 4 separately accessed houses with a total of 9 bedrooms, 6 of which benefit from en-suite bathrooms with 2 additional separate bathrooms. Using an existing inter-connecting door, 2 of the smaller properties can already be used as a single 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom larger house. And by re-opening another (currently sealed-up) doorway, another 2 of the houses could be easily reconfigured into just one larger house, with 6 or 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
So, use the main house as a permanent home or holiday home and rent out the 3 other houses to create income or adapt the accommodation to suit your family needs. Or, if you are looking for an investment, rent the whole property and generate a very healthy income.
