An exquisite Cortijo with equestrian facilities, constructed in 1781. Steeped in over 200 years of history.

Set back off the road, accessed via a long driveway with private electric gates, we find this luxury Cortijo with equestrian facilities, constructed in 1781 and entirely renovated to an extremely high standard, in keeping with tradition, just 2 years ago. 

The main building is vast, and has undergone renovation that is in keeping with the era in which the property was constructed. Beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, solid carpentry and stonework feature throughout. The property is designed for entertaining both inside, in the generous sized rooms, and outside in the expansive terraced areas and gardens.

The large living room features vaulted beamed ceilings along with the original fireplace dating back to 1781 and the modern day necessity of air conditioning. The kitchen comes with all the modern accessories but still retains its rustic character.

In total the property has 5 bedrooms, all benefitting from large walk-in wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms as well as plenty of natural light.

An annex building houses the utility room along with 2 separate rooms and a bathroom for potential use as guest or staff quarters.

The plot is of grand proportions measuring some 5,383 m² and located on a hilltop with perfect sea views and astonishing views over the backdrop of the mountains. The gardens are laid with grass and have various little areas in which to relax and enjoy the beautiful views on offer. There is a pergola adorned with ivy; a perfect place in which to watch the sunset or sunrise. There are various terraces throughout the property, both open and covered, and the entire plot is fenced in and secure.

Within the grounds and leading off of the main living accommodation we find a good sized heated pool filled with natural salt water and a solar cover for retaining and generating heat.

Furthermore, there are 2 stables that have been transformed into spacious living accommodation, set apart from the house, which could have a variety of uses from guest accommodation, holiday rentals, or be transformed back into equestrian facilities. In one of the stables there is a generator for the estate.

This outstanding property would make a luxurious private residence or an excellent boutique hotel. The possibilities are endless.
