For sale direct from the owners!
This charming attached farmhouse is around 200 years old and offers a great number of traditional features and rustic charm. However, the farmhouse has been modernised and improved in a sympathetic manner to offer comfortable accommodation with as many original features as possible retained.
With 6 bedrooms, the property sleeps 11 and makes it ideal for larger families or those that expect lots of visitors! The house is large enough to be a comfortable permanent home but the current owners have successfully rented the property out when not in use by the family. This is a great way to own a holiday home and use it to pay its way when not in use.
The layout of the property…
The bedrooms are split across the two floors which gives the house a degree of flexibility – two bedrooms come with their own en-suite shower rooms and a third shower room is located on the first floor with a further guest cloakroom on the ground floor.
There is plenty of space to relax with a sitting room, separate dining room with a bar, a modern fitted kitchen and lots of outside space to take in the views. The kitchen is in a single storey extension off the front entrance courtyard. The downstairs cloakroom is off the kitchen (via a lobby). The dining room is accessed from both the entrance hallway and the kitchen from which there is a door to the side (west facing) terrace. The sitting room leads off the dining room with access to the pool and back terrace.
There is a twin bedroom on the ground floor.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms (with en-suite shower rooms), two twin and one single bedroom, a landing and a large raised sitting/chill-out area. Access to the upstairs terrace is from the landing.
Outside, there are several terraces as well as a glorious swimming pool. The attached neighbour has no windows overlooking your space and there is total privacy at the pool and surrounding terraces. There is a large oak tree on the side terrace affording shade. The best views are from the side terrace looking west towards Frailes and Alcala la Real.
The large swimming pool is on the same level as the rear and side terrace with stunning views over the mountains; facing West, where you can sit watching the stunning sunset.
The house is surrounded by olive groves and comes with a productive vineyard and approximately 1.5 acres of land.
There are two additional buildings which are undeveloped but could, subject to necessary consents, be developed into self-contained accommodation. Each of the buildings has an area of outside space which could be used for private spaces for each of these potential rental units.
