This impeccable two bedroom, fully legal cortijo just can’t be faulted. Set on a carefully tended plot with fruit trees, and within a short walking distance to a pretty village, its idyllic location offers wonderful views and tranquillity, while on the edge of town.
This is a truly rare opportunity to buy a fully legal cortijo in the Lecrin Valley; a truly charming country home which has been fully renovated to high standards. The home is currently kept in perfect condition, well maintained and beautifully presented, both inside and outside.
The house is built on two levels on sloping ground, so that both levels have direct access to the grounds. Internal stairs connect both levels in the interior, whilst external stairs provide access from the garden to the spacious roof top terrace which has the same footprint as the home and boasts magnificent views over its verdant surroundings.
Ground Level: The ground level on entering from the front of the property, has a very spacious, bright and airy, and well-appointed kitchen-diner; a large yet cosy living room with beautiful, warm timber flooring and a feature fireplace in a corner which has been fitted with a wood burning stove, French doors offer views over the garden and of the surrounding countryside; there is also a study corner in this ground floor.
Lower Level: Two double bedrooms, both with en-suite, one with a shower and the other one complete with tub. Both bedrooms have French doors opening out to the garden. The grounds, spread over several terraces planted with oranges, lemons, figs, olives, plums, apricots and almonds, are irrigated from “acequia”, irrigation channel water, to which it has rights. The area outside the house has carefully tended gardens and flowerbeds, and terraces paved with flagstones and shaded by fruit trees. A small wooden shed provides storage space. Although access to the property by car is possible, parking is currently in the village as a parking bay would need to be created to park on the property.
A truly charming home on a beautiful location, as it lies at the foot of a mountain, and very close to the Beznar Reservoir, in the heart of the beautiful Lecrin valley, a quiet and tranquil unspoilt part of rural Spain halfway between the vibrant city of Granada and its “Costa Tropical”. The Lecrin Valley is a green orchard covered region at the foot of Sierra Nevada, with orange and lemon groves, olives, figs and almonds.
