The benefits this property offers include:

♦  Best location on the urbanisation on the very edge of the urbanisation with no bordering neighbours on 3 sides.  It has the highest location and the most private plot with sufficient privacy for skinny dipping in the pool. Plus unrivalled far reaching panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and down to the sea.

♦  Large open-plan kitchen/dining room/two living rooms exceptional and probably unique for a property of this age and location.

Separate guest bedroom with en-suite which is ideal for guests who want a little independence and this could be extended to add a kitchen and living room if desired (subject to normal planning permission).

♦  A beautifully shaped and large swimming pool that is deep (with a shallow end) that allows for proper swimming plus the pool has beautiful views from it and complete privacy.

♦  Large, just under 6.000M2 plot of urban land that is gated and fenced with two entrances and driveways (one at the bottom of the land and another at the top).

♦  Urban plots are normally small and do not have privacy, views or a countryside setting this property is exceptional for these qualities and exceeds expectations on viewing the property.

♦  Urban land classification allows for the legal extension of the property if desired.  Even, the construction of an entire independent guest cottage and possibly even another smaller swimming pool because the large 6,000M2 ‘urban’ plot (subject to normal planning consent and subject to the total built construction limits allowed by the town hall on the plot)!

♦  Urban classified land allows for the application of a mortgage which is difficult to obtain on “Rustic” land.  Yet this property has a countryside setting, great views and tranquiility so it enjoys the best of both worlds!

♦  Specially protected oak trees dot the land plus wild olives trees and wild palms. Also, the impressive red rocks of the area create drama. The current owners have left a large proportion of the land to nature but have carefully cultivated areas to create a semi natural landscape with comfortable sitting areas and the strategic planting of Mediterranean shrubs and succulents.

♦  Just 5 mins’ drive South to Almogia village and also 5 mins’ drive North to the hamlet of Pastelero. Pastelero has two exceptional ventas serving local cuisine.  All the amenities you need for every day living are in Almogia.

♦  Villanueva de la Concepcion which is a larger town is just 20 mins’ drive away (North).  Here you have even more amenities, bars and restaurants plus the amazing backdrop to the village – El Torcal Natural Park and mountain range.  Unique rock formations are to be found in El Torcal (see photo) and wild Ibex (cross breed of Antelope from Africa brought over by the Moors with local goats).  These amazing animals can always been seen when following the walking trails in El Torcal and also impressive birds of prey of many kinds.

♦  Only 35 mins’ drive to the coastal motorway, Malaga city and Malaga airport which is ideal if purchasing the property for a holiday home, holiday rental property or permanent home with the need to fly regularly for work or if you have many guests to stay.

♦  Los Alamos beach is just 35 mins’ drive away – a little known gem of a beach with a deep stretch of sand that is backed by beach bar/restaurants (chiringuitos), free parking and excellent facilities.  Located just West of Malaga city and just East of Torremolinos.

♦  Guadalhorce Golf Club is only 20 mins’ drive away and Parador del Golf 35 mins’ drive away which is ideal for golf enthusiasts and if holiday letting the property.

About El Curato Urbanisation

El Curato is a very unique urbanisation because is was created in the 1980’s and each property enjoys a large plot of land and the entire urbanisation has a lot of mature trees which gives natural privacy and a feeling of being in the countryside and not on an urbanisation.  El Curato is a very natural urbanisation, not manicured with the countryside spoilt.

The urbanisation benefits from land-line phones being available for connection with Broadband Internet also and of course mains water and electricity are connected.

The urbanisation has less than 20 properties on it and each villa is well spaced from the other (plot sizes of 5,000M2+).

It is also a very quiet place to live and enjoy the fabulous countryside that surrounds it yet also, it benefits from a good quality tarmac country road that passes the urbanisation.  This road is very infrequently used but usefully for easy access.  This particular villa is the furthest back from the road and has a huge rock hill between it and the country road – so the villa hears no traffic noise at all but has excellent access to the coast or inland.  A win-win situation all round!


Conservatory which also acts as the entrance hallway with water deposit below (a back-up despite being on mains water).

Large open-plan and impressive kitchen/dining room/living rooms that are framed by arches that define each area beautifully….

The kitchen is of good quality with granite work surfaces and built-in appliances including; an American style fridge freezer and dishwasher.  A wood burning stove heats this area.

The central living room which is part of the open-plan living area has a large window but has a cosy feel.  Then through another arch brings you to a second sitting room with feature arch window, French glass doors, gas wood burning stove and a door that leads to the rear alfresco dining terrace.

Master bedroom 1 is a good size double with fitted wardrobes and air-conditioning, plus a window with a lovely view of the surrounding countryside.

Bedroom 2 is a small single or bunk bedroom with fitted wardrobe that is ideal for children or maybe could be used as a study.

Independent bedroom 3 is a good size double bedroom with air-conditioning and an en-suite shower room.  Located outside of the main villa with separate entrance.  Being on urban land, it could be possible to extend this bedroom/bathroom into a full blown annex with kitchen/living/dining room.  This would need planning consent but there is no reason why this would not be granted.  There is also a separate driveway with gated entrance to the top of the land that could be used for this annex only.

Swimming pool & pool terrace

The pool is exceptional in shape, depth and size (10 meters long) and even more special when you add in the views and spacious sunbathing terrace.  The Montes de Malaga mountain ranges can be viewed from here and even the Mediterranean Sea.  The pool is chlorine and has two ways into the water via Roman steps at the shallow end or via stairs at the deep end.  An alfresco dining pergola is located on the terrace which could double as a shady area for lounging if preferred.  A brick built BBQ finishes the alfresco enjoyment of the pool terrace.

Roof terrace with panoramic views

The spacious roof terrace is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a sunset G&T or glass of wine.  From here you can see the El Torcal mountain to the North, the surrounding countryside, the Montes de Malaga mountain ranges to the South and of course, the Mediterranean Sea.


The gardens are very special because they are a mix of gently cultivated areas including seating areas with plants to enjoy year round.  In addition, there are completely natural areas of land that are perfect for nature, wildlife and insects.  The land benefits from a selection of beautiful trees, palms and plants from the area.  Nature trails could easily be created through the entire plot that would make a magical garden with secret areas and paths.  The natural red rock of the area has deposited huge boulders that become features throughout the garden.  This rock helps to create atmosphere.  Swings from trees and a tree house could be installed (ideal for children).  Even a walking trail to enjoy walking with dogs around the entire 6,000M2 plot could be created.  The opportunities on this fully fenced and gated land are endless.


A storeroom or workshop, ideal for the storage of gardening equipment is located near to the outside independent guest bedroom with en-suite.  This currently houses one of the boilers and a washing machine.

Building an independent guest cottage with complete privacy from the main house is a very viable option. The land that is beside the lower, winding concrete driveway is completely private from the main house and neighbours because of mature trees.  If desired, an independent guest cottage with smaller swimming pool could be built with permission from the town hall (because of the ‘Urban’ classification of the land and generous size of the plot).  A very private and pretty cottage surrounded by wild mature trees, palms and shrubs could be created here with easy access.

Almogia (5 mins’ drive) 

Almogia is a ‘pueblo blanco’ white village dating back to Moorish times where the remains of a hill top Moorish castle can still be seen today.  It is a vertical village with the old part being in the maze of streets on the hill and the modern part being at the top of the village.  It is a large municipality and has a 24hr medical centre with on-stand-by ambulance and helipad, a police station, post office, large supermarket, bars, restaurants and many small shops selling anything from haberdashery, jewellery, pastries and bread, meat, fish and vegetables and clothes. There are schools for those children of nursery age (2 to 4 years), junior school and senior school.  The sport centre is very good and the football team does very well and has just gone up to the next league.

Villanueva de la Concepcion

This busy and bustling town just 20 mins’ drive north of the villa has everything you need for modern day living and if you continue North for another 20 minutes, you reach the stunning and very historic city of Anequera.

The coastal motorway, airport & the beaches (35 mins’ drive)

It does not take long to drive down the winding road to the coastal motorway that will whisk you East or West.  Malaga airport is very conveniently located as are the beaches.  Los Alamos beach is a little know gem (located just West of Malaga city and just East of Torremolinos).  It is an immaculately maintained wide stretch of sand backed by ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bar/restaurants built on the sand).
