Beautiful large cortijo, renovated using only quality materials, many of them hand-made, currently configured as a profitable upmarket bed and breakfast but which would work equally well as a magnificent family home with a large studio for yoga, art. etc. In immaculate condition and full of charm and character with no two rooms alike. Set in mature gardens with wonderful views out across terraced hillsides. Totally private, yet easily accessible.
This magnificent farmhouse is, at once, rustic and elegant with all modern facilities but which retains all of the charm expected of a rural Andalucian cortijo. And, as a bonus, a private chapel, hand-painted by artist friends of the owners and a hammam - an arab bathroom with two pools, one hot and one temperate.
The accommodation as arranged as follows:
Building 1: entrance hall, majlis (arab style sitting room), dining room, kitchen, two toilets, a ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom, six first floor bedrooms, 4 doubles and 2 triples, all with en-suite bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms are arranged as a suite and share a lounge with woodburner and balcony.
Building 2: on the ground floor of this building is the hammam with heated marble floors and two pools, one hot and one temperate. On the first floor is a large wood-fired oven, useful for cooking for large numbers of friends, housed in a complete outdoor kitchen area, and the serene chapel.
Building 3: on the ground floor there is a dining room with open-plan kitchen, toilet, 2 double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and with separate access to the outside. On the first floor there is a very large multi-purpose space with wooden floor which could be an artists's studio, a yoga space, a seminar room etc. This room measures 87 m2 and has toilet facilities.
Outside there are numerous patios and terraces and the buildings are set in mature gardens. To one side of the main building there is a swimming pool with magnificent views. There is also an extensive vegetable garden and a stable.
There is heating throughout the property via efficient, low consumption electric heaters and the domestic water and hammam are heated by a very economic biomass burner which was only recently installed. Access is via an excellent hard track approximately 1.5 kms long easily accessible in ordinary cars.
Mains electricity is installed and the property has its own water supply via a well which also feeds a drip irrigating system to irrigate the garden. Broadband internet is installed.
Set in an idyllic rural location, the cortijo is within 40 mins of Granada airport and 50 mins of the historic city centre. Malaga and its airport are only one hour away, the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada can be reached in 1 hour and 20 mins and the beaches of the Costa Tropical in slightly less.
