The situation of the villa and the atmosphere you encounter on arrival
If you are looking for a property that has uninterrupted countryside views, this is your property. The villa has an open aspect looking across the swimming pool and gardens towards unspoilt mountain views, with the start of Almogia village in the far distance.
The property is located via a 5 minute well maintained track that does not require a 4 X 4 vehicle. You are rewarded well once you arrive at the villa. Your brain registers a wow, and you immediately relax. The silence is wonderful with just the sound of crickets and birds.
Basic description of the accommodation and outbuildings
Within the main part of the villa are two bedrooms and two bathrooms (the master bedroom is en-suite). The turret room is accessed by an external staircase and is currently the third bedroom. The turret room could be a home office, art studio, writers retreat or whatever you want it to be. Children are delighted by this special secret room.
The style of the villa is traditionally Andalucian yet the living area with lounge/kitchen and dining room is open-plan. Numerous windows wrap around the semi circular end of the lounge area which ensures a light and bright feel.
Other rooms inside and out include; a storage room accessed off the dining area that is fully fitted with wall lined cupboards. A utility room that houses the hot water boiler and washing machine is accessed from the front terrace and connected to the property. Go down the garden, beyond the pool and you find a good quality stable block with two stables and a tack room, currently used for storage and gardening equipment. Below the pool is a large L-shaped pump room also used for additional storage.
A little information about the location
Almogia village is just 10 minutes away by car from the villa, where you will find a good size supermarket, independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Almogia is an historic pueblo blanco with the remains of a Moorish castle. Continue South out of Almogia for approximately 30 minutes down the winding country road and you arrive at the coastal A7 motorway. There is the choice of the Guadalhorce golf course or Parador del Golf. The nearest beach is called Los Alamos (located between Malaga city and Torremolinos). It is relatively unknown yet has superb facilities and a deep long sandy beach backed by chiringuito style restaurants.
Malaga airport is a 30 minute drive away and Malaga city centre and marina is approximately 40 minutes drive.
It is possible to get a bus from Almogia to Malaga old town numerous times per day. This is very convenient if you do not wish to drive and park the car.
More detailed information about the villa
The property has ceiling fans throughout, double glazed aluminium windows with fly screens and roll down shutters. Fully fitted wooden kitchen with oven and hob.
WiFi that extends to the pool terrace provided by a SIM card that goes into the router and gives a good speed suitable for streaming television. The SIM card is obviously registered in the names of the current owners and they will return it to the shop in Almogia once the villa is sold. Of course, this service is available to the buyers. The large satellite dish next to the shed in the garden provides UK terrestrial channels and could potentially be re-aligned to connect to the TV channels of other European countries.
Every bedroom has large fitted or free standing wardrobes and cupboards. The room off the dining area of the living room is fully fitted with cupboards that lock. The current owners used to use these cupboards to house personal items when the villa was holiday let.
Under the outside covered lounge is a 14,000 litre water deposit – water comes in from the mains, into the deposit and then pumped into the villa under excellent pressure. Mains electricity is connected with lights extending to around the pool.
Annual rates for the villa are €410 per annum. Rubbish collection is €75 per annum (communal bins are located on the main road). Electricity is approximately €30 per month, water is approximately €16 per month and the Internet connection is €59,95 per month.
The property is entered through a quality metal front door, via the outside covered lounge. This leads into a hallway that gives access to the bedrooms and bathrooms and the living area.
There is a back door in the storage room off the dining room which opens onto the extensive driveway with carport.
The living room is open-plan and L shaped. The lounge area has a large bay window looking over the pool and out to the views. The kitchen is located at the back of the room with a dining area separating the two areas.
Down the inner hallway, firstly you arrive at the family bathroom that has a full suite of bath with shower over, bidet, vanity basin and w.c. From here you reach the second bedroom which is a small twin room with a large free standing wardrobe. The master bedroom is to the rear of the property. It is a spacious double bedroom with up and over fitted wardrobes and the room benefits from a good size en-suite with a generous size shower cubicle, plus a vanity unit.
The third bedroom is to be found and accessed from outside. A spiral staircase leads up to the fun and charming circular turret room. There is not a bathroom accessed from outside for this room to use. However, it could be possible to put a w.c. and wash basin in the utility room that currently houses the washing machine. The utility room is accessed from the front terrace so this makes sense.
Outbuildings and gardens
The stable block is of a very good quality. Block built with a proper beamed roof, windows and excellent quality metal stable doors. It comprises two good size stables with excellent ceiling height and hay racks. At the end of the block is a tack room.
The land belonging to the property is not the traditional land associated with the keeping of horses but there are two flat areas, one is particularly good for creating a paddock. Riding out is excellent from the villa. If someone wanted to rescue two donkeys, they would live very happily here.
The stable block would also lend itself to a dog breeder, or perhaps someone who wants an outbuilding for woodwork or any hobby requiring a good size outbuilding.
A good size metal shed is located next to the carport.
Pump room under the pool is a very good size with windows and door.
The gardens are low maintenance cacti, succulents and Mediterranean shrubs and trees located immediately next to the pool, between the pool and the house.
Access to the villa
A superb quality road from Villanueva de la Concepcion to Almogia and down to the coast is the road you would take before turning off to reach the villa. Once off the main road, a very good quality track that is superbly maintained winds and descends to the property. There is no need for a 4 X 4 vehicle. Approximately 10 properties use this track to reach their homes so it is not at all busy! This villa is the very last on the track so there is no passing traffic.
The concrete drive down to the villa is lined by walls on both sides and arrives at a huge parking/turning area with a tall carport that could accommodate a motor home or horse box.
This villa is ideal for a variety of buyers… Those who want a permanent home in a very tranquil location with a beautiful swimming pool. Perhaps someone who would like to keep a horse and a pony or perhaps rescue donkeys. Anyone who has a hobby that needs an outbuilding in a peaceful location would love this property.
The villa has been a holiday home for 11 years and it is being sold reluctantly so the owners can retire and not have the cost of a second home. However, if the buyer wished to get a Casa Rural tourism licence for this special villa, it would holiday-let very well and bring in between €1,400 per week in summer to €650 per week in the winter. The villa can easily pay for itself. There are a lot of holiday makers who want a retreat away from the chaos of modern living (with the convenience of WiFi, mains electricity, mains water and a large swimming pool).
The sellers are willing to create an inventory of non personal contents with a total price at the end of the list. This can be processed alongside the sale and neither seller or buyer legally pay purchase tax on the second hand items sold/purchased. The lawyers can deal with this process which is very common.
Julian and his wife, Phil (English) will happily communicate with anyone who is interested in discussing their property. Via phone, Email or WhatsApp is convenient for them. The housekeeper, Kelly (English) who looks after the property for them when they are not using the villa will open up the property for viewings on appointment.
