For sale direct from owner!

Rarely will you find such a charming property.  Vista Algarin is picture postcard perfect with an arched front porch, beamed rear alfesco lounging and dining terrace, a traditional chimney pot and a feature fireplace in the sitting room with round fire surround.  The property may be small but it is perfectly formed and well proportioned.  Equally, it is immaculately presented and tastefully finished – ready to move into and enjoy!

This traditional Andalucian cottage would make the perfect holiday home, holiday rental or a great permanent home for a couple who want to integrate into the friendly and  welcoming local community and soak up the stunning views. For many years now, the cottage has been holiday let very successfully and is only being sold so the current owners can retire.

Access is excellent, directly off a quality tarmac road then a concreted country lane to the entrance.  The white village of El Gastor is not far away, approximately 1.5km as is the beautiful lake of La Zahara which is just a few minute’s drive away.

Walking distance to El Gastor:  The walk is comfortable, having a pavement all the way with street lighting.  It takes approximately 20 minutes to walk into the village.

The ‘urban’ classification of the land the property sits on means that it could legally and quite easily be extended (subject to standard planning permission).  The large covered rear terrace could easily be glass curtained or fitted with bi-folding doors etc.  Perhaps even a little 1 bedroom guest cottage cottage could be built in the garden.

The village of El Gastor is a traditional Andalucian white village (pueblo blanco) and has everything needed for every day living:  a bank, post office, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, school, sporting facilities, shops, bars and restaurants.

The accommodation of Vista Algarin

Front porch with a series of arches leading to the front double door that enters into the sitting room.

Sitting room:  A cosy room where the focal point is a charming feature fireplace with circular fire surround skilfully finished in brick.

Kitchen/dining room:  A small kitchen that has all you need – fully fitted with base and wall units, an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine.  There is even a dining table and chairs. French doors give direct access to the large covered alfresco lounging and dining terrace.

Covered rear alfresco dining and lounging terrace: This area extends the living accommodation considerably and encourages outdoor living.

Bedroom 1:  A good size double bedroom with wardrobe and tall chest of drawers.

Bedroom 2:  A spacious twin bedroom.

Outside

Garden:  Currently kept simple due to the fact that the property is a holiday rental cottage, so it is currently completely hedged with a lawn to the rear and paved driveway and parking area to the front.  The entire plot of land is completely flat which is quite unique considering the mountain ranges in the surrounding area.

Swimming pool (8M x 5M):  A lovely swimming pool, set at the end of the rear garden with wonderful views of the Algarin mountain range and surrounding countryside.  The pool is set at the end of the garden to allow for a large lawn, ideal for playing balls games and lounging.

Alfresco lounging and dining terrace:  This is a lovely area where full shade can be enjoyed during the summer months.  It is large and can accommodate soft seating, table and chairs plus sun loungers as desired.

Due to the Urban classification of the land, should a buyer wish to be enclosed this covered terrace to form further living accommodation (perhaps re-configure the bathroom, and kitchen and build a spacious kitchen/diner with direct access onto the garden), this is very viable (subject to planning permission).  Equally, glass curtaining or bi-folding doors are another solution, as is enclosing the sides as desired.

Store room:  There is a store room attached to the side of the property, ideal for the storage of the lawn mower, tall freezer and gardening equipment.

Water deposit:  It is located at the front of the property, within the entrance driveway/parking area.  It holds thousands of litres of water and is perfect for use should there be a rare cut in main supply whilst a pipe is repaired, for example.  It is also used to water the garden and top up the swimming pool.

Views:  They are far reaching and open to include the famous Algarin mountain, countryside, agricultural land and gardens.

Amenities

Electricity:  Supplied from the mains.

Water:  A mains supply and back-up water deposit which is perfect for the swimming pool and lawn/garden.  There is a sprinkler system for the lawn.

Telephone & Internet:  The area is urban so there will be facilities available for connection.  The cottage is currently a holiday rental property so has not been connected.

Drainage:  Is via septic tank with no need for it to be emptied.  A chamber system produces clean water.

Fixtures, fittings and furniture

Apart from very personal items such as art and photography, the property is available to be sold furnished (by separate negotiation).

The area

El Gastor and Lake Zahara:  The village of El Gastor is pretty, traditional and very welcoming.  You will find everything you need in the village to include a good selection of bars and restaurants.  The lake is not far away either.  The lake is used for non motorised water sports and is appreciated when walking around it and looking down on it from hiking routes in the mountains.

The entire area is well renowned for birds of prey and many Griffon Vultures can be seen soaring on the thermals around the lake and mountains most days.

Ronda is only 30 mins’s drive into historic Ronda where you have every amenity for a population of 45,000.  It is a very historic area with prehistoric settlements having been found outside the city.  The city itself was first settled in the 6th century BC and fell to Arabs in 713 until 1485 when taken by the Christians.  Many Moorish influences in architecture are to be found throughout the old town.  The bullfighting ring is the oldest in Spain and the famous Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) built between 1751 and 1793 towers 120 meters above the canyon – one of Spain’s most visited attractions.

Airports:  1 hr 10 mins to Jerez.  1 hr 25 mins to Sevilla. 1 hr 40 mins to Malaga. Gibraltar 1 hr 50 mins.
