This superbly restored cortijo sits on the edge of a rambla (dry riverbed) with the most splendid views over mountains and fruit groves. The setting is peaceful and a great example of traditional rural Spain. With the main town of Albox under 10 minutes, the coast of Mojacar around 45 minutes and Almeria airport under 1 hours' drive away the location is rural yet easily accessible. There are local bars and amenities around 2km away. On a plot of over 4000m², including an almond grove, this reformed cortijo offers many features.
The approach to the house is impressive as the property sits elevated from the road. The drive up to the property passes the fruit groves and brings you first to a separate garage and annexe on the left which incorporates a double garage with a guest double bedroom and bathroom. Following on a little further to the right is a splendid private pool area with terrace and stunning views. Then at the top of the drive is the cortijo with a courtyard at the front door area.
The property has been renovated to a high standard. On the ground floor are two bedrooms both with en-suite bathroom, a spacious dining room & luxury fitted kitchen, including with all white goods. A flight of stairs take you to a further bedroom & the long lounge with log burner. The views from the lounge are stunning across the rambla and countryside. Out from the lounge is a terrace area to take in these stunning views.
The reform of the house was completed in approximately 2002 and the property benefits from mains electric and a very reliable & consistent natural water supply from the mountains. The property also has satellite TV and a telephone connection.
To summarize, this cortijo is full of character, in very good condition and a real gem. A fine example of Spanish rural living yet not too remote.
