Alhaurín el Grande
This must-see 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached country property, comes complete with a private pool, and is for sale at a very reasonable price.
Moreover, the property is fully-registered, and already has an AFO certificate.
Located in a peaceful, rural setting with 360º panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and distant mountains, yet only a five minute drive from the bustling town of Alhaurin El Grande.
The main living area is all on one level, with a large basement area below running the length of the house. This area is currently used as a garage and for storage, but could be partly or wholly converted into a workshop, office, artist's studio, music studio, games area, etc…
Ideal for permanent residence, holiday rentals, or a mixture of both.
Through the entrance gate to the property, a driveway leads up to a hard-standing parking area for a number of cars and to the entrance door to the garage / store room. Steps lead up from here to the main part of the house. Once inside this character home, the living space opens up with high ceilings, open-plan living and lots of light. The open-plan area consists of a cosy lounge with fireplace, TV, a good size fully-fitted kitchen, breakfast table, and a dining area. At each end of this main living room, is a double bedroom, each with ensuite bathroom. In addition, there is a third bedroom or office, and a cloakroom / additional shower room. All rooms have a door with access to the outside areas, which is important in the unlikely event of a fire.
The living area leads directly on to a very good size terrace, ideal for outdoor living during much of the year. Here, you can relax with a book, sunbathe, switch off completely and admire the views. To the far end of the main terrace, there is another area for dining, preparing BBQs, and entertaining. The 30 m2 swimming pool, reached via steps down from the terrace, is an eye-catching feature.
The property itself is set in the centre of private grounds totalling 5.495 m2, with an abundance of olive trees and other fruit trees. Olive harvesting is done in two parts: one for collecting table olives and the other for olives used in the production of extra virgin olive oil. The owners are more than happy to give a future buyer advise on harvesting, and so forth. The plot is fenced to three sides, but can be completely fenced, if required. It has been left open on one side since the adjoining plot belongs to a family member and can be acquired by separate negotiation to give approx 10,000 m2 in total.
The current owners live in the property during most of the year, except in high season (Easter & summer months) when there are holiday lets booked. This is a good way of generating extra income, if so required. This summer, 2019, there are a number of weeks with holiday lets, and the net income would be passed over to a new owner in the event the purchase occurs beforehand. The property is registered with the Junta de Andalucia for Rural Tourist Accommodation.
There is air-conditioning (hot & cold) throughout the property, mains town water, fitted wardrobes to two of the bedrooms, grills to the windows and french doors.
The property is located just a short distance from the road via a remotely operated barrier that leads to a private road, which then continues on passed the house allowing access to a few other detached neighbouring properties. Altogether in the Community of Neighbours there are around half a dozed detached country properties. The Community is a legally established association formed to look after elements such as the internal roads, lighting, entrance barrier, etc.
