FANTASTIC COUNTRY HOUSE WITH SEPARATE GUEST HOUSE AND STUNNING VIEWS
Country Property for sale in Alomartes (Íllora)
Ref: CORTIJO OLIVOS
This beautiful Andalucian cortijo has been superbly renovated and is located in a priveleged position with amazing views of the Sierra Nevada and surrounding countryside. Access is via a track in good condition and the main house and grounds are fully fenced. This property is perfect as either a small B&B (it is fully licensed as such) or as a family home for anyone with a lot of family and friends.
The main house is a modernised large, 485m2, cortijo with mains electricity and well water. There is a modern bio septic tank that doesn’t need emptying and the well has a new pump. The electrical installation is recent and has in-ground cabling plus two fuse panels so the upper and lower floors of the house can easily be separated if needed.
The interior of the house is tastefully styled and each of the six bedrooms is themed using the colours of the countryside. There are five bathrooms in the main house and three of the bedrooms are en-suite. Four of the bedrooms are upstairs and two are downstairs in what could be owners accommodation.
A large fully fitted kitchen comes complete with a huge oven and hob, extractor fan, dishwasher, double sink, large fridge freezers and a breakfast bar.
On the ground floor is a sitting/dining room next to the kitchen, perfect for owners personal and private space, as well as a large open plan sitting room/dining room with large windows and lovely views. The laundry and store rooms are also on this ground floor as well as an additional bathroom for guests using the swimming pool.
On the upper floor, as well as the bedrooms there is a shared sitting room with a large terrace and views to the Sierra Nevada.
There is central heating, a large log burning fireplace in both of the sitting rooms, air-conditioning, as well as double glazed windows all with mosquito nets, and wifi available throughout the property. All modern touches within a traditional farmhouse that makes living here a joy.
The separate casita has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a bath, all stylishly tiled and located on the ground floor, with one bedroom and bathroom with wheelchair access. The upper floor has the open plan fully fitted kitchen and living area with a large terrace off and super views over the countryside. The casita has its own downstairs terrace, as well as its own electricity supply, air-conditioning, TV, and septic tank. There is the possibility here to make a completely separate entrance and parking area at the side of the casita.
Double gates with electronic remote control lead off the track to the property. There is a two car carport plus plenty of guest parking.
In front of the main cortijo is a large fully tiled terrace with shade, BBQ area and a huge fish pond with water feature and fishing deck. And of course, amazing views.
The guest area has its own tiled terrace for outdoor dining.
A large garden is planted for ease of maintenance and comes with a well equipped children’s playground.
The pool (7mx9m approx.) has been specially designed so it isn’t overly deep at the deep end to make it safer for children but it’s perfect for swimming. There is a hot tub, lots of space for sun loungers and a wonderful chill-out/recreation area with billiard table, bar, BBQ, lots of prep space for making lunches or dinner and a double sink. This area is beautifully maintained and is a wonderful place to spend long Spanish days and star-lit nights.
The plot includes an olive grove which is set outside the fenced in main property and is a wonderful addition both in the possibility for income but also for selling your own olive oil and olive based cosmetics or food. Your guests would love the opportunity to help harvest olives and then be sent home with a jar of prepared olives from the grove, or a bottle of olive oil.
This property really is idyllic and has to be seen to be fully appreciated. It can work on so many levels as a business but also if you just wanted luxury countryside living for your family it could be perfect for that too.
We can offer remote live video viewings of this property and we also have more information regarding the business value of the cortijo and olive crop.
