For sale direct from the owner!
This two storey house is located within the Natural Park of the Sierra Subbetica and offers a huge amount of accommodation for the money. Located within a small hamlet of houses, the property has 5 rooms on the first floor – each of which can be used as bedrooms or could be converted to create more bathrooms.
The property underwent a full reform about 7 years ago including a total rewire.
As it is situated in a natural park it would suit a wildlife lover who likes the peace and quiet and watching the buzzards and smaller birds and insects in their natural habitat.
On the ground floor, there is a large living room, dining room, kitchen, a downstairs bedroom and shower room.
There are a number of reasons why this house will suit a lot of buyers searching for a peaceful, convenient location (but not isolated) and who want to integrate into rural Spanish life…
♦ 4 bedrooms but with scope for more
♦ Convenient location with Carcabuey just 8km
♦ Located in a small hamlet of similar houses
♦ Mains electric and water via a communal well supply
♦ Telephone and Broadband Internet supply
♦ Renovated in 2008
♦ Outside space – two terraces to the rear and a further terrace with space for a pool
♦ Stunning views of the Sierra Subbetica Natural Park
♦ Well fitted kitchen with hand made units
♦ Ground floor bedroom (or it can be an extra living room)
♦ Local bar/restaurant just 5 km away
♦ The property has a ‘cedula de habitabilidad’ from the local town hall.
The accommodation is as follows:
As you enter the house through double doors, you come into the living room which is the heart of the house – from this room you can reach all the rooms on the ground floor and the stairs rise up to the first floor.
Off the living room is a ground floor bedroom although this room could easily be used as a further sitting room, snug or office.
A separate dining room with original character features and double French doors leading to a tiled terrace with some amazing views over the local mountain ranges.
The kitchen is accessed from the living room through an archway. It is fully tiled and fitted with hand made wall and base units within metal frames, a gas cooker/electric oven, an extractor hood over the cooker and the focal point of this room is a log burner built into a fireplace. There is a single sink with drainer and plenty of work surface space. Unlike many Spanish houses, there are even 8 power points for all those work top appliances!
There is a pantry off the kitchen which is ideal for storage.
Through the kitchen and down a couple of steps is a fully tiled shower room with a shower cubicle with power shower, a vanity basin with storage below and a low-flush toilet. There is also a doorway to an Andalusian patio which houses a wash room and leads to a storage shed.
The first floor has a total of 5 rooms – 2 of these are guest bedrooms and then you have an office/study area plus a den and a large storage room.
Bedroom 2 – 5.03m x 3.23m
Bedroom 3 – 3.91m x 3.91m
Bedroom 4 – 3.97m x 2.7m
Room 5 – 3.61m x 3.61m
Room 6 – 5.8m x 1.83m
Malcolm, the owner, already has a quote for the cost of converting one of these rooms into an upstairs bathroom – obviously, this is subject to the style and quality of finishes but it is more than possible. If you look at the floor plan, it would be very easy to create a bathroom in the passageway (grabbing a little space from the current study space) leaving 3 double bedrooms as well.
Dining terrace – accessed from the dining room, this space benefits from a sun shade to make it usable throughout the year. Under this terrace is a log store and storage for tools etc.
Andalusian terrace – this is accessed from the house and has access to a fully tiled wash-house which has a new Samsung washing machine and an Indesit tumble dryer.
There are two further terraces with a small patch of garden for growing vegetables. These terrace areas used to house an above ground pool and it should be no problem to erect a new one if required.
Next to the wash-house is a storage shed used currently for storing power tools and hardware etc. Located in this shed is a 250 litre hot water tank and water storage tank for cold water.
Although the property has no pool there is ample room for a pool on the two lower terraces.
Water to the house comes from a community well serving the hamlet
Double glazed throughout with “persiana’s” and fly screens
Bottle gas for the cooker
Telephone is via a mobile mast from Movistar and Broadband Internet is via satellite
The house is located within a small hamlet of similar properties surrounded by olive groves and the natural wonder of the Sierra Subbetica Natural Park. Peace and tranquillity are part of life here – you can’t walk to a bar and you can’t catch a bus but if you are looking for a slice of Spanish heaven, you could be in for a treat!
Just a short drive from the property is an eating place called El Cortijo which offers meals and a bar – ideal as a local and they even invite you to use the pool in the summer if you wish to!
The house is located just 8km from Carcabuey which benefits from a variety of bars/restaurants, a post office, various shops and cafes, the local town hall, a library, museum, schools and the village has a very welcoming feel to it.
There is a medical centre with two doctors and three nurses as well as a paediatric nurse. There is a larger health centre in Priego de Cordoba with a casualty service and many doctors’ clinics.
