A LOVELY CORTIJO WITH STUNNING VIEWS
A wonderful 5 bedroom detached property nestled in the natural reserve of Cabo de Gata. The property is located in a peaceful hamlet called Cueva del Pajaro which is just 7km, or 15 minutes´ drive, away from the beaches of Carboneras. The property measures approx. 243m² and sits within a plot of 478m² that includes an elevated garden area and 3 x 5m swimming pool. The pool has sat empty for a number of years so some remedial work will be required.
The front gate opens onto a walkway which runs along the front of the property. From here there are 2 access points into the property via a main hallway as well as a second kitchen. The walkway then ends with a lovely covered terrace that is home to a barbeque. The views from here are stunning overlooking the valley & surrounding mountains. Steps from here lead up to terraced gardens with the pool located at the top. Due to the elevated position, the views from here are simply breathtaking.
Back at the front of the property and stepping through the front door, a grand entrance hall leads to double bedrooms immediately on the left and right. An archway then opens into a huge living & dining room. The first kitchen is also on the right with granite worktops and plenty of storage space. On the opposite side of the living room, a doorway opens into a utility room/pantry with access into a second & more spacious kitchen with corner fireplace. From here you can access the covered terrace area mentioned previously. A hallway leads us away from the lounge to the main shower room before a set of stairs up to the first floor.
On the first floor, a long landing stretches the length of the property. On this floor there are an additional 3 spacious double bedrooms. The final bedroom benefits from air conditioning. From the landing, we also access a huge south-facing terrace with absolutely amazing views. This terrace runs the entire length of the property.
Air conditioning has been installed in the living room, second kitchen and 2 of the bedrooms. The property also benefits from high speed fibre-optic internet.
Finally, this property is sold with somewhat of a project. At the end of the property, there is a garage/storeroom with potential to create a completely independent apartment. On entering, there is a huge space which could very easily be converted into an open plan living room with kitchen. A gap has been left in the ceiling for a staircase up to another room, intended for use as a bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This bedroom would then have access to the same terrace space as the main property. This terrace could be divided to give the independent annexe its own private outside area. This annexe could offer great rental potential or could simply be used for visiting friends and family to enjoy.
One of the most thriving areas of the Cabo de Gata natural reserve is the town of Carboneras. Just 67km from Almería city and with a strangely beautiful rural environment, the town has gone from being a discreet fishing village to a first-rate tourist centre with all the ingredients needed in a Mediterranean coastal town: good gastronomy, wide beaches and an incomparable natural setting. It would be a pity to visit only the municipality in search of sun and sand. There are many places to see in Carboneras, such as the imposing viewpoint of the Mesa Roldán Lighthouse, the San Andrés castle or the wonderful landscapes around the town not to mention the stunning sandy beaches, bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and much more. The closest airport is Almeria which is just a 30 minute drive away while Murcia and Alicante airports are 2 hours and 2 hours and 30 minutes away respectively.
