This cortijo with a feeling of space is new to the market after being built around thirty years ago. The property has an entrance gate with plenty of parking space, this leads to a patio area with plants and shrubs and to the front door, on entering into a reception hallway there is access to two of the three bedrooms and the family bathroom. An opening leads through from the reception hall into the large open plan sitting room with open fireplace, with lots of large South facing windows allowing the light to stream in. To one end of the sitting room, there is a fully fitted kitchen along with a window to the West elevation and a door leading out onto the large patio with plenty of space for al fresco dining. The master bedroom is situated at the other side of the house so is very private and has also plenty of window and an en suite bathroom. The land is mainly flat and with lots of mature plants and trees, several areas to sit and enjoy the tranquil nature. There is an independent studio space beneath the house, ideal for painting, sculpture etc along with a large storage room. The property was designed by a British Archtiect and his wife with wonderful results.
