This very charming, traditional country house enjoys a rural location but is within walking distance of all of the amenities of Barriada del Puente , Álora and less than 100metres from a reputable traditional Spanish bar/restaurant. The house extends to 103m2 and is set within an enchanting, mature garden & citrus orchard of just under a quarter of an acre. As soon as one enters the garden one can enjoy the scent of the many plants & shrubs including lavender and orange blossom. The accommodation is distributed over two levels. To the front of the property is an expansive front terrace ideal for “al fresco” dining and entertaining and hosting a mature vine which provides lovely soft shade in summer and one can enjoy full sunshine in winter when the vine has shed its leaves. One enters the property from the terrace into a welcoming reception /dining hall which leads off to the right to a kitchen and to the left to an utility room, a bathroom & a double bedroom. An attractive staircase leads up from the dining hall to the upper level which hosts a nice, bright sitting room featuring a wood burning stove and double doors which offer access to a 18m2 upper terrace with plenty of room for dining and sunbathing and host amazing views across the Guadalhorce valley to Álora pueblo and its historic castle and as far as the Sierra de Las Nieves mountains in the distance. The second bedroom completes the accommodation on the upper level. There is also an outside stair offering direct access to the garden from the upper level which, possibly, offers the potential of converting the property into two small units of accommodation. The character and charm of this property really cannot be over emphasized. The property was historically the home of the local “ techador” , home and business of the man who made the traditional terracotta roof tiles “tejas” and part of the kiln , which reported dates back several centuries, still remains within the garden and adds another very interesting feature to the property. Although traditional and very charming, this property has the advantage of not only excellent access but also the modern amenities of mains drinking water & electricity, landline telephone and irrigation water. It really does offer a potential buyer the opportunity to acquire a very special Andalucian retreat.
