An exquisite, renovated Andalucia farmhouse and guest annexe, with a total build size of 554m2, situated in a stunning, rural and tranquil setting, nestled within 66,000m2 of productive olive and almond groves and yet only 20 minutes drive from the town of Alora.
The main house, of 439m2, is spread over two levels. The ground floor features 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, alongside a generously-sized kitchen, dining room, sitting room, and office/study. The upper level boasts a further 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The house is adorned with two traditional fireplaces and a wood-burning stove. A spacious covered terrace directly accessible from the kitchen and dining room provides a beautiful space for dining and enjoying sunset views. Furthermore, there are four large, Andalucian patios, each adorned with beautiful, handmade floor tiles and built-in flower beds, one planted to a lovely lavender hedge.
The current owners have spared no expense and paid utmost attention to detail in crafting this stunning residence. The property underwent a meticulous renovation earlier this century, maintaining its authentic charm by preserving features such as olive wood beams, exposed stonework, and traditional fireplaces and bread ovens. At the same time, modern comforts were added, including oil-fired central heating and double-glazed hardwood windows, resulting in a luxurious Andalucian farmhouse that beautifully blends old-world charm with 21st-century convenience. High quality materials have been used throughout the refurbishment including oak flooring on the upper level, handmade reproduction tiles featuring traditional patterns from Granada and Sevilla, and handcrafted, custom-made carpentry by local carpenters.
In addition to the main house, a converted barn serves as a guest studio, providing independent open-plan accommodation extending to 115m2. It includes a bedroom with a sitting room incorporated into it, a kitchen and bathroom.
Outside, the property enjoys extensive outdoor entertaining areas as well as a private, quality constructed 10m × 5m swimming pool. There are also a number of other outbuildings, including a garage, carport and wood store.
Possible sources of income generation
Rural tourism: The generous proportions and flexible layout of the accommodation offer the potential to operate it as a luxury rural accommodation business. In fact, the plumbing and electrical systems have been designed to accommodate such a project. Given that Alora has been declared a town of special touristic interest since 2021, and with the cities of Granada, Sevilla, and Cordoba all within a two-hour drive, this area serves as an excellent base for exploring Andalucia. Consequently, there is high demand for luxury rural tourism accommodation.
Agricultural exploitation: The area where the property is found is recognised locally for its fertility, offering potential for further land utilisation, such as establishing a vineyard or cultivating avocados or mangoes. The property enjoys a private water supply and has two water deposits of 30.000 litres each, meaning the property has a water storage capacity of 60,000 litres.
Three phase electricity is connected and high speed internet is available.
While the country house enjoys a private, rural location, it is just 20 minutes drive from all of the amenities of the town of Alora and less than 1 hour away from Malaga city and its international airport.
