2 bedroom house with 1 bedroom guest annexe, 5945m2 plot – garage – gardens – terraces – pool – amazing views
A stunning country house in a glorious location, surrounded by spectacular mountain and country views, with a separate 1 bedroom guest apartment
If your idea of a Spanish home is something in the true countryside, not on a development and surrounded by beautiful views, this may be the one for you.
Situated around 6 minutes from the country town of Colmenar, just within the municipal borders of Antequera, this house is located along a track of 1.8Kms in reasonable condition (passable all year round in a standard car). Along the way there are other country houses leading off the track, but this property is not overlooked and is very private.
The gates lead into a large private parking area laid to gravel. There is a very large garage/workshop to one side, (8 x 4m) ideal for keeping the car locked up if one is away, aswell as a perfect place to store tools, work bench etc.
The main house has a delightful covered terrace or porch area, divided into two parts with a glass, sliding door partition between the two. One serves as an excellent outside covered dining area, the other as an outside covered sitting area. In total this area is 9 x 3m. From here, the front door leads into the kitchen/dining room, a generous 4.25 x 4.25m, fully fitted and bright and light. To the rear, beautiful double wooden doors lead to a store area, followed by the bathroom (4 x 2m).
To the right hand side of the kitchen/dining area is a wooden door with glass panels leading into the living room. This delightful room, with window to the front, is 5 x 4m and has a central fireplace fitted with a woodburner, with natural stone and brick surround. The woodburner is installed with ducts to carry warm air to each of the bedrooms.
From the living room, two doors each lead to a bedroom. Each bedroom is 4 x 3.5m with windows to the other side of the house, overlooking the privately owned field.
Outside, a few shallow steps lead to the pool level. Here we have the pool at one end, a lovely 9 x 4m expanse of water, with a pool house and store shed at the far end. At the other end is a lovely pergola covered area and barbecue/outside kitchen area. The guest annexe is located here, with lovely views over the pool and mountains beyond. The guest annexe is around 30m2 and consists of a lounge/dining room with fitted kitchen at one end, and a door into a double bedroom with rounded door into an en-suite shower room. It is a very pretty, comfortable and homely space, in perfect condition, often used as a holiday let in the past by the current owners, and ideal as separate accommodation for family and friends.
Surrounding the buildings and immediate gardens is the rest of the plot. Below the pool is a wonderful rock garden planted with many flowering shrubs and plants, and beyond, banks of bright, aromatic rosemary forming a picturesque frame for the wonderful country and mountain views all around. To the rear of the house is a beautifully kept vegetable patch with natural compost heap and surrounded by trees. And beyond is the field, a vast expanse of flat and gently sloping land, laid to natural grass and an olive and almond grove, with the spectacular rocky peaks of the Sierra del Codo behind. There are also many mature fruit trees including mulberry, cherry trees, apple trees, pomegranates, pear and apricot.
This is a truly beautiful house, great for all-year-round living, aswell as for using as for holiday rental income. The location is spectacular, the house immaculate, the land wonderful and spacious, the property very private! All in all a gem of a property, within 35 minutes of Malaga and the coast.
