This is a very charming reformed 4 bedroom cortijo that really captures the Andalucian feel that many property hunters are searching for.

The coast is only a 30 minute drive away with the beautiful provincial capital of Almeria & it´s international airport only one hour's drive away. The airports of Murcia San Javier & Alicante are 1h 30 minutes and 2 hours away respectively.
The property sits on a very quiet country lane with the main house located on one side of the lane and the land on the other. The views from the front terraces across to the mountains are beautiful and peace & tranquility are most definitely assured. The 1100m² plot of land includes shaded BBQ terraces, a chicken pen and an allotment whilst the main house enjoys a beautiful long central courtyard.
Once inside, the home is full of charm & character with beamed ceilings and small traditional windows. Upon entry you are met with a modern, fully fitted kitchen with appliances. A hallway from the kitchen then leads to the lounge with wooden beam ceilings and at the end of the lounge are two steps up to a spacious dining room with feature log burning fireplace. An archway from the dining room leads to a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Back to the hallway and first on the right is a larder store and ahead is another one of the double bedrooms. Off the lounge are two doorways into two further double bedrooms. There is another room which has not been finished yet and which is currently being used as a storeroom. On the other side of the dining room is a doorway that leads to the family bathroom with full bath and shower above.
The property also has two additional storerooms attached to the house that could offer further development potential.
To summarize, a lovely home full of character with plentiful outside space, views and a real taste of rural Andalucia.
