STUNNING CORTIJO NEAR VELEZ BLANCO
A high quality reformed country cortijo boasting 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms located in the El Piar area of Velez Blanco with amazing views. The house measures 168m² with outbuildings including a wood store & garage totalling 94m² sitting within a generous plot of 1270m².
This property is presented to absolute perfection and offers bountiful Andalusian charm with traditional features, such as exposed ceiling beams, wooden windows & doors, stone walling and a private walled courtyard.
The cortijo is situated within a small friendly hamlet with an old olive museum at the centre, which was the village school in years gone by. The setting is very rural but not isolated, as the property is just 7km from Velez Rubio and 9km from Velez Blanco. Both towns offer good amenities and weekly markets.
Upon approach, the plot is completely walled & gated, ideal for pets. Vehicle gates open to access plenty of off-road parking and a garage in the far corner. Next to the garage is another outbuilding, currently used as a log store, with a small walled yard in front. This building & yard offer further scope for renovation, if required. Next to the wood yard, there is beautiful bar & entertaining room with a door leading out to the front terrace. This room can also be accessed internally via the house. An impressive and much used feature, complete with exposed ceiling beams, log burner, bar and ceiling fan.
Back outside & immediately on the left on entering the grounds via the main gate, there is a high stone wall with gates that leads to a very private garden area with a modern shower in the corner. The garden is mature with plenty of colour and raised flower beds. A door to the left from the courtyard accesses the formal dining room whilst a door on the right opens into the utility room. A set of steps from the courtyard then lead up to the roof terrace with commanding mountain views and access to the master bedroom. A converted water bolsa now forms a beautiful plunge pool with lovely views. Finally, at the front of the property & leading out from the kitchen/diner there is a covered terrace with pergola for al fresco dining.
Moving inside, double wooden doors open into a spacious kitchen/diner which boasts air conditioning. To the left is a dining area with a log burning fireplace with the open plan kitchen to the right. The country kitchen boasts a range cooker, granite worktops and the exposed ceiling beams. A door from the kitchen leads into an ample ground floor bedroom. A door from here then leads into a hallway used for storage and a bodega (wine cellar). This area can also be accessed from the outdoor bar area.
Across the hall we find a shower room & W/C which benefits from a heated towel rail and a fitted vanity unit. Back in the dining area, a small hallway on the left leads straight ahead to a family bathroom with a newly fitted walk-in shower, glass screen and heated towel rail. A door on the right from this hallway opens into the formal dining room with log burning stove and French doors out to the walled courtyard. To the left from the hallway a door leads to a utility room.
Back in the kitchen & straight ahead, a glazed panelled door opens to the spacious lounge with another log burning stove & ceiling fan. A stair of stairs on the right in the lounge lead up to the first floor. At the foot of the stairs, another doorway leads into another double bedroom. Here there is scope for additional renovation as a doorway from here leads to another staircase accessing two further undeveloped rooms. These extra rooms could be useful for anyone wanting to run a B&B and the rooms have their own separate access from the rear of the house. At the opposite end of the lounge a door then leads into the formal dining room.
On the first floor, a landing area serves 2 very grand bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts air conditioning, pitched roof with exposed beams, double doors out to the roof terrace and an en-suite shower room. The shower room includes a walk-in shower, heated towel rail and fitted vanity units. The second bedroom is another huge room, again with pitched roof & ceiling beams.
