What makes this town house unique from others in the Malaga Province
♦ The characterful home is mid terrace yet it has a large 450M2 plot of land with a 9M x 4M swimming pool to the rear which is very unique for a historic town house built in 1940. It is also in the centre of the large mountain village of Yunquera on the edge of the Sierra de las Nieves natural park.
♦ The land owned by this beautiful home backs onto protected fruit orchards that cannot be urbanised (not other properties) yet the situation is right in the heart of the village.
♦ There is a full size swimming pool with Roman steps down into the water plus two gazebos surrounded by sunbathing terraces and a terrace that accommodates the BBQ.
♦ The land has its own lemon, orange, apricot, lime, almond and 4 x olive trees. Almost unheard of in a centre of a village.
♦ There is a walled and very private courtyard for alfresco dining in the shade of mature trees.
♦ Rarely in old buildings like this do you find 6 bedrooms & 3 bathroom to include different bedroom configurations to include luxurious bedrooms suites.
♦ The decor and finish is something you would expect to find in plush Marbella home, not a mountain village house where there is not a straight line in sight! On saying this, the decor has been tastefully and carefully chosen to sit very well with the thick wall, vaulted ceilings, arches and non standard layout, associated with old properties such as these.
♦ It is believed this property was once a lavender press, producing lavender oil. Today, it has a high gloss white kitchen with granite worktops and central island plus American fridge/freezer plus formal sitting room and additional living/dining room. It is rare to find a renovation done so well, superbly mixing contemporary with the traditional in a mountain village house.
♦ To be so central to all the bar/restaurants (20), formal restaurants (4) , shops, cafes, bakeries, butchers, 24 hr doctor etc. and have a large party home that comfortably sleeps 12 with swimming pool and land, located in a village within the Malaga province is rare.
♦ The house is currently designed to be lived in on the ground floor by the couple who own it and then the top floor and back “honeymoon” suite opened up and used by visiting family and grandchildren when they turn up for holidays. So, a lot of the house can be shut away until guests arrive yet, the ground floor footprint is larger than your standard villa with pool.
♦ The house has two living rooms – 1 x living/dinging room off the kitchen and 1 x sitting room with feature fireplace.
♦ Whilst the property is currently a family home, it would equally make a superb B&B or boutique guest house because of the very private owners accommodation and abundant potential guest rooms plus guest lounge & swimming pool/terraces. Or perhaps, a magnificent holiday let that is a party house… rented year round by holiday makers who want to party as a big group. This property could make the owners a lot of money because their guests can walk to bars and restaurants as they please. Also, it is very close to the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park for outdoor activities. Or for more cultural trips, Ronda & Marbella are 50 mins’ drive away.
♦ The property is available to be bought as seen (minus personal items) by separate negotiation for the furniture and fittings. An itinerary would be written up and a price allocated as a total and tax is legally not paid on this figure (better for both buyer & seller).
