This is a home ideal for homeowners who wish to have their own cottage with their own private outside spaces whilst hosting guests who will have a separate cottage with their own private terraces with spectacular views.
The main house currently offers one large bedroom but has the option to create 1 or 2 further bedrooms with some minor alterations. The guest cottage is also presented as 1 bedroom but can be modified to 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The countryside location is beautiful yet convenient, directly accessed from a tarmacked/gravel road.
The property is being sold without AFO as the owners have discussed this issue with the local architect at Villanueva town hall and he has confirmed that the house does not need AFO and is fully legal.
Private but not isolated from neighbours and just 1km from two bar/restaurants. Neighbours of different nationalities are dotted around.
There are two excellent bar/restaurants known as ventas just down the road in the hamlet of Pastelero. The ventas serve excellent home cooked, traditional cuisine made from local produce. They open during the day for menu del dia, a three-course lunch with drinks for less than €10! In the Summer you can enjoy a BBQ outside or in Winter, sit by the big open fire and relax whilst enjoying a great meal and good wine.
Within the hamlet of Pastelero is a bakery where you can collect bread or have it delivered, and a little convenience store where you can pick up things you need for daily life.
The vibrant small town of Villanueva de la Concepcion is only 10 minutes away by car. Here you will find everything for modern day living and bus routes to Antequera and Malaga. For its size, Villanueva de la Concepcion has an incredible number of amenities similar to those normally associated with a bigger town.
Accommodation in brief includes:
The Main cottage has big thick walls throughout to retain or keep out the heat depending on the season. A small entrance hall/boot room, one large bedroom, one large shower room, a spacious kitchen/dining room and a sitting room with French doors onto the terrace with outstanding views. A laundry room is attached but accessed from outside.
Whilst the main house is currently a 1 bedroom cottage, it is possible to create 1 or 2 further bedrooms without too much work. The current bedroom is large and could be split into two bedrooms with a new door from the living room. Or, moving the kitchen (not too difficult to do) could provide a further bedroom.
Guest cottage has an entrance hall, spacious shower room, a sitting room which could be a second bedroom (and even partitioned to make it private with a double bed, bunk beds or sofa bed), a kitchen fully fitted with units and work surfaces and a very large bedroom on the first floor.
The gardens are mature with low maintenance drought resistant plants, shrubs, trees and palms. It is a tiered garden with paths running throughout and spectacular views from the terraces above both the main cottage and guest cottage.
Fruiting trees on the land include olive, almond, pear, apple, lemon, orange and peppercorn.
Central courtyard/central terrace finished in natural stone separates the main cottage from the guest cottage and features a mature fig tree which the property is named after. The courtyard/central terrace has a summer house, laundry/utility room and seating area.
The views are spectacular. West facing with some of the best views to be found in Andalucía. All day sunshine is guaranteed, as are impressive sunsets to enjoy with a cheeky G&T on any of the many terraces.
If a swimming pool is desired below the gardens is an open area slightly sloping that would be the perfect location to place an above ground swimming pool (to comply with the current Andalucian land law) with decking to create an infinity effect pool and sunbathing terrace. From here you would take in the far-reaching views towards the different mountain ranges beyond. There are many areas around the cottages where a jacuzzi would sit perfectly if that were desired.
Fully fenced and gated land with a pedestrian entrance at the guest cottage end of the property with public parking on the historic era (threshing circle) immediately outside. The main cottage has a double gated driveway with path leading down the side for ease of access to the property.
This property has been a much-loved permanent home for 20 years. Both cottages and the gardens/land have been immaculately cared for and improved over time. This means that everything has been installed for guaranteed year-round comfort throughout the seasons. There are not only the obvious comforts such as air-conditioning, ceiling fans, wood burning stoves etc. but there are swing fly mosquito screens doors which are unusual but so convenient!
Modern comforts and conveniences have been installed with a higher specification than is usual in the average Andalucian country home. Both cottages have new roofs that are fully insulated, new flooring that is also insulated, air-conditioning (cooling and heating, ceiling fans and fly screens. Both cottages have been re-wired and re-plumbed.
The main house has recently been fitted with UPVC double glazing to windows and French doors. A modern wood burning stove and a fitted kitchen with granite work surface means enjoyment can be had from day one of moving in.
The guest cottage retains its original wooden windows which adds charm.
The house has previously been used as holiday accommodation and would only need new accreditation for rural tourism.
Modern communications already in place include; Broadband Internet and WiFi with a 15Mbps download meaning streaming international television is easy and effective. There is also a local number phone connected via the system that provides the Internet (WiFiMax who are located in Villanueva de la Concepcion itself).
Communication includes a UK telephone number which can be changed to another country to suit the new owner.
UK and Spanish TV available and realignment of the satellite dish will also provide other EU countries.
