Contact Vendor

For sale direct from owners!

El Curato is a very unique little rural urbanisation for many reasons and offers the buyer great opportunities and huge flexibility:

♦  El Curato is a hidden gem nestled amongst oak trees and backs onto farm land.  It has a quiet countryside feel yet the benefits of an ‘Urban’ classification.

♦  Access is off a good quality country road that is very scenic and little used yet is convenient.  The gravel tracks on the urbanisation are well kept by the council (no need for 4 x 4 cars here!)

♦ Very private position, not overlooked and with far reaching views

♦  Only 5 mins’ drive into the village of Almogia with all the amenities needed for every day living.

♦  Only 7 mins’ drive to the hamlet of Pastelero that has two exceptional bar/restaurants serving local country cuisine.

♦  20 mins’ car ride or take a bus into the historic city centre of Malaga.

♦  Since the land laws have changed, these rare types of urbanisation can no longer be built.

♦  Enjoy the villa and guest cottage as it is or take advantage of the genuinely excellent options available to build swimming pools, additional accommodation by extending the main villa or build more guest cottages.

♦  This property on  ‘Urban’ land gives huge flexibility to the buyer.  This entitles them to build virtually anything they desire within this beautiful countryside location.  (El Curato does not have the restrictions of the farm land that surrounds it which has the classification of ‘Protected or Specially Protected’ land).

♦  The town hall of Almogia have confirmed that the plot of land can legally have a total built area of 500M2 on it (currently only 196M2 is built).  This allows the buyer great opportunities to do as they desire without a fight with the town hall!  A swimming pool or further building can be to your very own specification.

Of course, as with all town halls, any projects will have to go through and be passed by the relevant planning office:

◊  Build one very large swimming pool or build two (one for you and another for your guests).

◊  Extend the main 2 bedroom villa, making it larger to accommodate your needs.

◊  Build additional guest cottages.

◊  Create a little holiday complex on the land with communal swimming pool, bar/cafe/restaurant etc.  Offer self-catering, B&B or full board to your guests.

◊  Build what you and your family want or need for private use.

◊  Build ornamental walls, a garage – whatever suits your needs.

◊  Add value – this a brilliant investment!

♦  Land-line telephone with Broadband Internet sufficient to stream international TV.

♦  Satellite TV.

♦  Mains electricity.

♦  Mains water plus very large water deposit (below the front terrace).

♦  Two septic tanks (one for the main villa and another for the guest cottage).

♦  Double glazing plus fly/mosquito screens.

♦  The benefit of no unsightly and annoying street lights causing light pollution (because of the surrounding countryside).  Star gazing is superb here!

♦  Far reaching and uninterrupted 360 degree countryside and mountain views.  South – the Montes de Malaga natural park and North – the entire expanse of the El Torcal mountain range.  Immediate views surrounding the property are of protected oak trees and farm land belonging to a very large local Cortijo.

Accommodation:

2 bed, 1 bath main villa (119M2)

The villa is entered via a South facing conservatory then into the living room/study area with feature fireplace and open fireplace with fully lined chimney (temporarily accommodating an electric wood burning stove).  From the living room (through an arch) you enter the modern fully fitted kitchen/dining room with granite work surfaces.  Another arch from the kitchen, enters a hallway that leads to the master bedroom, bedroom two (a double bedroom that is currently used as an office).  The bathroom is fitted with a full bathroom suite and is fully tiled.

2 bed, 1 bath guest cottage (43M2)

The cottage enters directly into a very spacious room that can easily accommodate a bedroom, sitting area and kitchenette.  From here one door leads to a second bedroom (currently used for storage) and another door leads to a fully tiled shower room with WC.

Gardens, orchards and outbuildings:

Outbuilding (34M2)

A tool shed ideal for storing all needed for tending the gardens and land.

Carport

Spacious enough for one large car.

Immaculate, natural and beautiful gardens planted with low maintenance Mediterranean plants, shrubs and trees

The gardens really are very special.  There are formal areas for lounging in the shade, terraces for relaxing in the sun and hidden paths that wind around ancient oak trees and impressive natural rock formations.  There is also an area for playing the Swedish/Scandinavian game of Kubb.

There is ample space to install a swimming pool surrounded by a pool terrace.  This is permissible by law due to the ‘urban’ classification of the land and an architects project can be submitted to Almogia town hall to obtain planning permission.

Orchard

The orchard is extensive and is well planted with:  Olives, apples, plums, almonds, cherry, pomegranate, pear, mulberry and Seville orange.  The olives can be sold to the local co-operative and if you wish, you can even have your very own olive oil pressed each year.

Maintenance of the land

The entire gardens and orchard are cared for by a local Spanish gardener (who speaks English) who’s services can be retained or not, as desired by the buyer.  The current owners also enjoy caring for parts of the garden and terrace.  The garden and orchard is very established and does not require watering.  All the plants and trees are Mediterranean and drought resistant.

The entire plot of land is fully fenced (1.8M) and iron gated

The land is very secure for safely keeping dogs or for allowing children to freely play and explore this very special garden.

Location:

El Curato is conveniently located just inland from Malaga city and also very handy for Malaga airport (yet it is not on the flight path (which affects Torremolinos, Cartama, Alhaurin de la Torre, Alora etc.)  There are several country routes down to the city or airport.

Of course, the very historic village of Almogia with the ruins of the Moorish castle is just down the road (approx. a 5 mins’ drive).  Here you will find everything needed for every day living such as a supermarket, smaller shops, bars and restaurants, schools for all ages, swimming pool, police station and sports centre.  The village has several open-air festivals throughout the year to include the those of; the almond, the goat, Verdiales folk music, the summer Feria, historic ploughing competitions by mules and the very popular Romaria which celebrates the coming of summer.

Head inland and quickly you will enter the municipality of Villanueva de la Concepcion.  Firstly reaching the hamlet of Pastelero which has two very good and well renowned bar/restaurants serving local mountain cuisine to a high standard and at reasonable prices.  Then a little further inland and East brings you into the small town of Vva. de la Concepcion that is impressively nestled in the foothills of the fabulous El Torcal Natural Park. Here you will find everything needed for modern day living and many more restaurants and festivities.

From El Curato, there are three very scenic routes that will take you North to the historic city of Antequera, now with Unesco World Heritage status for it’s dolmens.  Here, as with Malaga you will find all you need.

Summary:

Enjoy the property as it is or make changes to your taste and requirements.  The owners welcome you to view the property and walk around the impressive land, asking whatever questions you may have…
