This stone country property has been made sound by way of ensuring the Andalucian tiled roof is in good order, the electrics function well, a hand-made wooden kitchen installed with tiled work-tops and a septic tank fitted.
This property is still very traditional in styling and it could be improved more with further modernisation such as; perhaps a change in layout, maybe decor changes such as lighting, new Andalucian style windows with shutters and a more modern bathroom fitted (or even just a change in bathroom tiles to complement the white suite)… All this would add to the charm and also add value.
There is a large covered porch of 59M2 which adds to the living space of the home (total built living area is 171M2). Currently, the porch roof is functional and built of corrugated iron. Perhaps, cane matting fitted underneath this iron roof would soften the ambience of this covered alfresco dining and lounging area.
It is likely this property would be very appealing to a buyer who wants to keep animals of different kinds because of the large amount of agricultural buildings that have a total built area of 285M2. The 4,000M2 of land and access off a tarmac road well below the property is ideal for those who want to easy move animals. The driveway would benefit from improvement by grading it and the laying of compacting gravel.
There is also an outbuilding close to the house that has been modernised in the same way as the house, ready for use as a hobby room with modern fittings and fixtures.
This charming, traditional country home offers a huge amount of flexibility. The property is traditional, sound, honest and simple. A blank canvass for improvements that will add both value and modern comforts.
The property has been renovated with; new electrics, plumbing, septic tank and hand-crafted kitchen. It could be lived in as it is – basic but functional or more contemporary finishes could be blended beautifully with the traditional features that add character.
Improvements that lend themselves to this property are; replacement wooden windows with shutter, the same floor tiling throughout, knocking through of some rooms if desired (currently the house is traditional in style with many rooms leading off rooms), Andalucian style wooden internal doors with black iron livery throughout would really add something to this property and perhaps Moorish lighting would look wonderful! A graded and gravel compacted driveway would be ideal.
This farm house is set amid more than an acre of ground with plenty of outbuildings (285M2 of registered stables, chicken sheds and storage buildings), the opportunities for hobbies, a small holding or the keeping of animals could help to create “the good life” in Spain. Perhaps a cattery, kennels and grooming business would thrive here?
One of the outbuildings could potentially be used as a guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom or perhaps a hobby room with shower room.
The main house has; 2 large living rooms that both open onto the large covered front terrace – this helps to connect the outside and inside with a real sense of homeliness. Overlooking the front, there is also a large kitchen/dining room with hand crafted fitted kitchen, a pantry area and a traditional “rincon” corner fireplace.
The bedrooms are all at the rear of the property – the master bedroom is a large double with en-suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom. The room in between these two bedrooms can either be used as a bedroom, a study/office or a passage way to the 2 bedrooms.
Outside, the range of outbuildings are a project in themselves – chicken sheds, a pig house, a two storey shed and store, a range of stable buildings and storage sheds to cater for larger animals.
Installation of a swimming pool: Due to the rural status of the land, the law in Andalucia does not currently allow for a dug in pool to be constructed. However, a large concrete slab/terrace already exists in the perfect place for an above ground pool to be installed and decked around (this would avoid the need for a building permit for the construction of a pool).
The gardens are well stocked with a range of fruit and nut trees including plum, pomegranate, olive, orange, fig, almond and many more.
Located walking distance into the small hamlet of La Higuera with a bar and corner shop.
3 mins by car to the white village of La Joya with everything needed for every day life, to include; a good choice of dining option, bank, pharmacy, bakery and cake shop, schools, sports facilities and a fabulous 5 star hotel with excellent restaurant and spa/gym which can be joined if desired.
10mins from the bustling village of Villanueva de la Concepcion you will find everything for modern day living; from a 24hr medical centre to a sports complex, outdoor municipal pool, shops, bars and many restaurants.
20 mins from the historic and beautiful city of Antequera which is the municipality this property belongs to. The town hall of Antequera is where you would go if you wished to discuss anything related to the property. Antequera is a spectacular city with ‘world heritage status’ for the dolmens. The city is very historic but equally very modern at the same time with a relatively new hospital, large choice of supermarkets, a huge business park where you can buy anything from a bathroom suite, to a car, to a sofa and more – everything is in Antequera that you would expect to be in a city.
50 mins drive to Malaga airport and Malaga city. Malaga city is very special and was awarded the most modern European city 2018 whilst having an impressive cultural centre and historic old town.
This traditional country home is the ideal ‘blank canvas’ for anyone looking to live a traditional country life or for someone who wishes to blend traditional character with contemporary finishes for the height of comfort and style.
Life in this rural hamlet has stayed unspoilt for generations – a rural community that is La Higuera, connected quite closely to La Joya. It is a friendly and welcoming farming area – looking South over the mountains that back Malaga and out to the Mediterranean Sea. Looking North is the magnificent El Tocal mountain range/natural park. Just behind El Torcal is where Antequera is to be found.
