349M2 built – 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (to include a self contained guest annex). Set in 37,213M2 of land for arable farming with a formal garden and terracing surrounding the property with a pool.
Plot of land (37,213M2):
Two plots of land (21,544M2 plus 15,669M2 = a total land size of 37,213M2). The land is currently used for arable farming with the fields growing a wheat crop this year. The land is farmed by a local farmer with the owners not having to worry about the up-keep of the land.
If the land was desired to be used by the new owner, the agreement with the current farmer can be discontinued. The land is almost flat and would be perfect for keeping horses with the construction of stables being allowed on ‘Rustic’ (rural) land. Equally, if the extensive planting of olives trees appeals to the buyer, this is a very viable proposition as is the planting of pistachio trees that grow particularly well in the area. A vineyard is also very viable.
As you enter the property through the entrance gates, the original threshing floor of the finca is immediately seen. It has been retained, semi-restored but it is mostly intact. If the buyer wishes to fully restore the threshing floor to its original glory, this is encouraged by the government as threshing floors are protected by law for their historic significance. In times gone by, the threshing floor would have been used to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Immediately around the property is a formal and low maintenance garden with a mixture of established and newly planted trees, terracing, pergola for shade, the pool, driveway and large carport. This area immediately around the property is fully fenced and gated.
The main house (306M2)… Created by a leading architect – the interior has a contemporary layout yet is complemented by finishes that complement the rural farmhouse that this home is. The setting called for a blend of Andalucian charm and modern flourishes to represent that the property was re-built in 2017/2018.
The accommodation comprises: On the ground floor… A generous size entrance hall, double height vaulted and beamed sitting room with mezzanine office space above, kitchen/dining room, master bedroom suite 1 with bedroom, office/or dressing room and huge bathroom, double bedroom 2 with en-suite. There is a mix of glazed doors to the terrace, picture windows plus full height floor to ceiling windows throughout the ground floor. On the first floor… Bedroom 3 is a double bedroom with en-suite in the eaves of the property accessed via the mezzanine overlooking the living room.
The separate guest annex (43M2)… is equally as well designed as the main part of the property. It is on one level with independent access and accommodates a spacious kitchen/living/dining/sitting room, double bedroom 4 and large bathroom. The annex has a door leading outside from the kitchen area of the annex to the courtyard and pool area.
High specification of the build includes:
♦ Central heating via oil fired radiators in all rooms. The boiler and oil tank is located in the ‘plant room’ situated between the main house and annex shown on the plans.
♦ Cavity wall and roof insulation throughout the property ensures it stays cool in summer and warm in winter.
♦ No air-conditioning is needed due to the high specification of the build.
♦ Double glazed throughout (white).
♦ Quality fitted white kitchens in both the main house and separate annex.
♦ Fitted wardrobes to each bedroom plus built-in storage also in the eaves of the master bedroom.

♦ Broadband Internet can easily be installed by a company called, Lemm of Ronda and the service can be provided by either antenna or satellite. A choice of Internet speed is available.
♦ Telephone can also be obtained via satellite and it is likely a ‘bundle’ to include; mobiles, Internet and house phone can be purchased.
The integrity of the original farmhouse has been retained:
♦ From the front of the property you would not know that a modern interior awaits you. A beautiful finish to the render keeps the original soft sand stone colour of the property known throughout the Ronda area. This colour plaster finish has continued within the property also.
♦ Only larger glazing in places gives a hint that this property is modern yet in keeping with the type of home it is.
♦ Mains electricity supply.
♦ Water via a well certified for drinking.
