Lovingly restored 2 bedroom country home in a peaceful location (El Ferrer) close to the beaches of the Costa Tropical

Contact Vendor

The location of this property is one of the key reasons why we feel this delightful home is well worth considering as your next home in Spain.  Set within a small hamlet of just 20 houses, the property sits on “urban” land giving plenty of scope in the future to make changes, add a pool or to extend the size of the house.

Having neighbours from a variety of backgrounds gives you a community feel but you have plenty of space and separation (and some amazing views) to enjoy life in rural Spain.   There is no feeling of isolation to be “endured” here either – a quick trip down the 6km road and you are on the coastal road accessing the whole of the Costa Tropical and the rest of the Granada province.

Over the last 11 years, the current owners have lovingly restored the house and it is being sold in excellent condition to allow new owners simply to move in and enjoy this tranquil and relaxed environment.

The house and gardens…

As you meander through the traditional whitewashed village of El Ferrer, you come upon Bodega Naranja with entrance gates leading you along a gravel driveway to the house.  There is plenty of parking.

A tiled terrace greets you in front of the house. To the left of this and directly in front of the sun lounge is an area which, in the summer is used to house an inflatable 8’ dipping pool and in the winter months, table and chairs in which to enjoy the autumn/winter sunshine.

On entering the sun lounge you will encounter a few steps down to the ground level. In this area you can enjoy leisurely drinks, a little light reading, the odd siesta maybe (thanks to a sofa bed!) and a profusion of pot plants.  It is a fabulous entertaining space.  All this area is netted to ensure nothing disturbs your relaxation, while at the same time affording the fresh mountain air as well as the smells of the herbs which are plentiful around the area.

The house is entered through double doors off the sun lounge. This brings you into the lounge and dining areas which are very spacious and house a selection of seating.  The heating is afforded by a very attractive pot-bellied style wood burner which gives amazing heating to not only the lounge but also the dining and kitchen areas.

The kitchen is fully fitted and has 30+ cupboards to house a plethora of kitchenware. There is an extractor hood over the cooker and currently there is gas piping for bottled gas supply to the cooker.  The kitchen is fully tiled for low maintenance.  There is a stainless steel double drainer sink and a second small stainless steel sink for food preparation.   At the end of the kitchen is a small, fully tiled cloakroom housing a toilet, fitted with an extractor fan. There is also a door out to a very small courtyard. This door also has a second netted door to allow the main door to be opened without the worry about flies or mosquitos in the kitchen area.  Hot water is supplied via a gas heater and this is located in the courtyard outside of the kitchen.  There is a second gas heater which is exclusively for the upstairs shower room. This is housed in an exterior vented cupboard at the rear of the property.

In the dining area there are fitted cupboards for storage and two windows which afford plenty of light.   The lounge houses a main window at the south end and at the north end a feature arch window which is also at the foot of the stairwell.  A particular feature of the lounge is a cupboard which houses the television! This ensures the television does not dominate the room as it can be closed away out of sight.

Throughout the whole downstairs area beige/neutral tiles are fitted which should fit in with any colour scheme.

At the end of the lounge is the stair well which leads to the upper floor. The staircase has traditional wooden spindles and wooden treads. Turquoise tiles are also incorporated on the risers as well as on the landing floor. These stairs lead to a small landing which houses a linen cupboard. To the right of the linen cupboard is the double sized guest bedroom which has wall to wall wardrobes and wooden floor boarding.  A netted window looks out over the wonderful hillside outside.  This bedroom has an air conditioning unit.

Along the upstairs landing is the shower room.  This consists of toilet, wash basin and a very spacious walk in shower.  The whole room is attractively tiled, floor to ceiling, with the flooring being a neutral beige. There is also a netted and shuttered window and a heated towel rail for those cooler winter evenings.  The wash basin is sat on a marble worktop with a cupboard underneath to house all the necessaries.  The bathroom also has diffused lighting and an extractor fan.

Further along the landing area and opposite the bathroom is a door leading to an upper terrace.  This is fenced with metal railings and has a washing line.  The door has a metal gate and the terrace has a security light/switch if required.

Along the landing is the master bedroom.  This houses twin aspect windows, for wonderful views whilst having coffee in bed and both windows are netted and there is also a fitted wardrobe. There is an air conditioning unit fitted in here. The flooring is traditional Spanish terracotta tiling.

For security, the house is fitted throughout with “reja” bars at the windows and also metal gates at the doors. These are deemed unnecessary in our secluded village but give comfort to those that feel they need to have security.  We live here permanently but this would also assist anyone who wants to use the house as a holiday home. Also discounts are given by insurance companies for such measures!

There are plentiful sockets and light switches throughout the house, together with numerous exterior lights to enjoy the balmy evenings. There are also exterior electrical sockets in the lower garden section.

On the very odd occasion when there is a power failure (this is rural Spain and sometimes we get a bad storm!) there is emergency lighting downstairs which automatically activates in the event of a power failure, guaranteeing a minimum of three hours lighting. So no problem!

There is a large storage/workshop by way of a cellar accessed by steps at the side of the sun lounge, which runs the length of the upper floor. This currently houses an array of machinery/tools and affords ample storage for any purpose. There is an electrical supply and lighting here.  Along from this is a generous wood storage area.

The garden has several different designated areas; on the upper area, is a young orchard which could be changed and used to install a generous pool and sunbathing  area (don’t forget we are on urban land so this is very feasible!)  The middle section has recently been used as a vegetable garden.  The lower section is laid out to ornamental bedding.  There are still many opportunities for change in the garden. At the back of the house there is also a walkway which houses another storage area for sun loungers, etc. There are various water taps dotted around the garden and generally the garden is watered via irrigation pipes fitted and an electric pump. The whole garden is fenced/gated.

The property currently has internet access and telephone and mains electricity.  Water is supplied by a community bore hole and is maintained by the local town hall.

The house can be sold with some furnishings which will be discussed at the offer stage.

Location

The village is approx. 350ft above sea level up an easily accessed concrete and tarmacked road.  The location is idyllic………unusually you can hear yourself think….a rare occurrence in today’s society!

Although up a small mountain, we are still in a valley, hence the wonderful, 360 degree views of nothing but hillside and almond trees.  The smell of the almond blossom early January is a delight.

A wonderful tradition are the local shepherds who regularly herd their sheep and goats around the area, it’s lovely to hear the bleating and the bells clanging as they climb the hillsides. And regularly in the spring you may witness many a lamb being born.

The neighbours, whilst friendly are not intrusive and as the house is situated at the very edge of the village you can be as integrated as you choose to be.  The surroundings are very private.

The nearest village for provisions is Castell de Ferro only 6km away, which is a traditional fishing village, and boasts 2km of beach.  Here you will find two local supermarket chains as well as three banks, numerous bars, bread and fish shops and a few other local Spanish traditional shops.

Importantly, Castell de Ferro also has a very good Health Centre where English is spoken.  There is also an English speaking dentist.  Castell de Ferro has a church and good bus links to more major towns and also to Malaga/Almeria/Granada airports.  A new motorway link has just been completed which connects Malaga/Almeria/Granada.
