This property is within the small community of detached homes – Pulgarin Alto, Alfarnatejo that is not far from Alfarnate. Pulgarin Alto is a country hamlet with a bar/restaurant (currently closed for refurbishment and then being sold), however 5 to 10 mins’ drive away there are many more bars and restaurants to choose from. Pulgarin Alto/Alfarnatejo are located inland from the coastal resort of Torre del Mar (East of Malaga city), inland from beautiful lake Vinuela and 15 mins’ drive to the well known larger villages of Riogordo and Periana.
What makes this property special is not only its spectacular location with easy access but also the flexible use this charming home offers and its prime opportunity to become a superb ‘casa rural’ holiday letting property. There is a main house, a guest house, a swimming pool, an outhouse (that could potentially become an occasional kid’s den/bedroom or hobby room/artist studio), a garden with mature trees and shrubs, three ancient olive trees, a double car port and a walled and fenced plot.
Renovated from 2011 to 2013 with ongoing improvements in recent years
The current owners completely renovated the entire property, starting in 2011 (main house & guest cottage) and improvements have followed to include a contemporary kitchen. The foundations of both the main house and guest house have been substantially strengthened, the entire property has been re-wired with new fuse boxes to current regulations, re-plumbed with mains water (drinkable as it comes from the mountain and pumped into the village). Broadband Internet connected (via satellite currently with line-of-sight to a mast also possible), a large satellite TV dish is ready to be re-aligned for the use by most European countries, there are now new aluminium double glazed windows with shutters throughout. A contemporary fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and granite work tops fitted, the kitchen/living/dining room flows well now, a wood burning stove was installed and eco electric panel radiators fitted to all rooms and two modern shower rooms that are a colourful delight. Of course, the property has been beautifully decorated inside and out and continues to receive loving attention and care to-date ready for the new owners to enjoy.
A utility room keeps the washing machine noise out of the house and a double car port was erected. The land is completely enclosed with full height fencing or walling and there is a charming arched blue metal door into the garden for pedestrians. Across the concrete track from the house is further parking on the land owned by the property.
Swimming Pool 6M x 4M x 1.5M (24M2) swimming pool (that sits on solid rock) with the filtration system underneath is a wonderful place to cool off and relax whilst soaking up not only the water of the pool but the spectacular mountain views that are panoramic. The pool terrace and pool are very private from neighbours.
This property is prime to become a Casa Rural (official tourism holiday letting property)! It is very likely a tourism licence would be issued for this property to be an official holiday let with little effort. A lawyer can easily organise this for a buyer or they can do it themselves with a visit to the town hall free of charge! Having a main house (that can sleep 4 adults), an established guest house (that can sleep 2 adults & 2 children), an additional outbuilding that is prime for conversion into an occasional overflow kid’s den/summer bedroom for two children, a swimming pool already in place, spectacular mountain views, off tarmac access and just 200 meters walk from bar/restaurant (when it re-opens) and other eateries within a few minutes by car… As already said, prime for the perfect holiday let! The area is well renowned for tourism relating to seeing the ancient olive trees in the area, rock climbing, walking, cycling, bird watching, painting, photography, eating local produce that makes traditional rustic cuisine a delight and Lake Vinuela is just 15 mins’ drive away with all kinds of non motorised water sports on offer and restaurants overlooking the water.
Main house (51M2 + covered terrace): This house is a very beautifully presented; 2 bedroom (one double and one twin) and 1 bathroom property with a kitchen/living/dining room with access to a covered alfresco lounge/diner.
The 2nd bedroom also has access to the outside but to the rear of the property. The master bedroom is a good size double with built-in wardrobes and shelving. The second bedroom is a comfortable twin.
The kitchen is contemporary and of good quality with integrated appliances to include; a fridge/freezer, pyrolitic oven, dishwasher and three ring induction hob plus microwave in a housing above the oven.
The bathroom is also contemporary with a funky vanity unity and shower/cubicle. Attached to the house yet with an external door is; the utility room with new Candy big drum washing machine, the hot water boiler and shelving. There is a courtyard area ideal for drying washing at the back of the house.
Guest cottage (27M2 + open terrace): Completely renovated to the same standard as the main house, there is a good size double bedroom, a modern shower room, a spacious living/kitchen area with a futon double bed ideal for children or even adults. The kitchen is in the Andalucian style with a tiled work surface that accommodates a sink, kettle, coffee machine and toaster. However, there is ample space for a microwave, table top oven with grill and fridge underneath the work surface. A portable air-conditioning unit is located in guest cottage fondly known as the ‘The Chicken Shed.’ Outside the guest cottage is a private terrace that has complete privacy from the pool and main house due to one of the impressive and ancient olive trees providing privacy. The terrace has ample space for dining and lounging.
The ‘Old Donkey House’ is ideal for more accommodation with a conversion into a kid’s den/summer bedroom or hobby room/artist studio (8M2 approx + open terrace):
The Old Donkey House has a terracotta tiled floor and is a brick built structure. Currently, it is used as a storage outbuilding. However, with a little work and imagination, it could become a fun place for children to play in or even sleep in during the summer. It would easily accommodate two children or teenagers and a fun place to ‘hang out.’ Or it would make a superb hobby room or artist studio.
