For sale directly from the owners!

Situated among the stunningly majestic mountains of Malaga (‘The Pyrennees of the South’), close to the white villages of Alfarnatejo and Alfarnate and just 35 minutes drive from the long beach of Torre del Mar, Montaña Rosa is a beautifully restored, two-bedroom Cortijo whose character has been retained and enhanced in a careful renovation by its current owners.

The village of Alfarnatejo is just five minutes’ drive away. Three minutes further on is the town of Alfarnate which has a 24-7 Medical Centre, banks, ATMs, supermarket and numerous shops including butchers and fish shop, bars and good restaurants. A large market is held every Friday selling a wide range of fresh fruit and veg, clothes and household items.

Excellent access and surrounded by white villages, olive, citrus, cherry and almond groves in an area enjoying a glorious vista that stretches down the valley, across the turquoise waters of Lake Vinuela to the coast and the sparkling Mediterranean, the house enjoys a unique sense of privacy in the shade of its mature gardens.

A fully independent, self-contained casita nestles in the garden, ideal for visiting family, friends or guests. Once a two-bedroom casita, both en-suite and with their own separate entrances and air conditioning, it has now been converted into a completely self-contained unit with a large bedroom, lounge and kitchen area and two bathrooms. the lounge/ kitchen area has a sofa bed, and this could again be a fourth bedroom if required. There are two efficient gas radiators in the bedroom and lounge. It has been registered as a Casa Rural self-catering casita, and can generate a regular income for most of the year.

The large, mature garden has an abundance of flowering shrubs, palms and other tropical plants, a pool and various shady seating areas, all designed to take full advantage of the sense of peace and tranquility the garden imparts.

Layout of the main house…

Through the front door you enter the large L-shape kitchen/dining area with all-new units and appliances. There is an efficient gas radiator for the winter months, which heats the kitchen area and there’s also a small WC with wash hand basin off the kitchen.

Through the characterful old timber doors (originally the front doors to the cortijo) you enter what is currently a bar area with its own wood fire stove and intimate lighting.

Beyond that, through an archway, lies the first bedroom with its feature tiled archway recessed into the wall.

From the bar, stairs lead up to the lounge/reading area with its panoramic view through sliding doors, out over the terrace and the towering limestone mountains, dotted with olive and almond groves. Adjoining this terrace is a studio with large windows looking out over the garden.

Off the lounge is the bathroom with bath, and the air conditioned bedroom with a velux window which floods the room with light.

The main terrace outside has 180 degree views of the surrounding mountains and countryside, ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine as the sun sets.

The guest house layout…

Inside the door of the casita is a spacious lounge with sofa-bed and wall-mounted TV. To the left is the kitchen and dining area and separate bathroom with shower. Through a door you enter the large bedroom with ensuite bathroom and shower. This double aspect bedroom looks out over the garden’s colourful tropical plants and palms.

The casita is a spacious 64 sq mts in area.

Terraces, gardens and the pool area…

There are a variety of outside spaces and terraces in which to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area – shaded areas during the heat of the sun and open terraces to enjoy the balmy evenings.

There is a separate roof terrace over what is currently a small tool shed/storage area offering further panoramic views across the mountains and valley and wonderful sunset vistas. This roof terrace was re-lined and re-tiled during renovation with new steps and hand rail leading up to it.

The gardens are very well stocked and have an almost tropical feel with the many yukkas, flowering bougainvillea and flowering cacti.  There is a natural spring well of stone which is often used for watering the gardens, stone walls and a terrace for the swimming pool.

There is plenty of parking including space for two cars outside of the property (ideal for guests) and space at the top of the lane for parties and gatherings.
