Idyllic country estate and successful award winning business or large family home on the edge of the Axarquia mountain range.

Idyllic country estate and successful award winning business with captivating views for sale in the region of La Axarquia, Malaga province. The 10 acre (3.5 ha.) estate sits on its own private hilltop at ca. 550 m. altitude and overlooks the Sierra Tejeda nature reserve, with the highest peak in Malaga province, and the Mediterranean sea. The estate consists of two independent, completely private luxury residences with their own pools and multiple chill out areas, set in beautifully landscaped gardens with orchards a vineyard and olive and almond groves.

The first house ' Cortijo Carligto ' is a renovated farmhouse that dates back over 150 years. It is sympathetic to its rustic Andalucian origin yet manages to achieve an elegant, modern feel that is light and spacious. El Carligto boasts four double bedrooms. Two of the double bedrooms are en-suite; the master bedroom is connected to the en-suite through a short arched corridor and offers a unique hammam style bath, balcony terrace and outdoor shower. There is also a separate family bathroom and an additional guest bathroom.

The pool area is simply seductive: There is an adjacent summer kitchen shaded by an ancient eucalyptus tree. The breathtaking view from the pool terrace offers a "top of the world" sensation. Nothing short of spectacular; marvel as the land seemingly falls away before you into the valley and spills out to meet the Mediterranean Sea beyond.

The second house ' The Hunting Lodge' is a modern property with a built area of 300m². This gorgeous property has three double bedrooms, all en-suite, and a guest bathroom. Secluded bohemian terraces and herb gardens surround the property bringing you to the highest and most amazing viewpoint by the heated pool.

The Cortijo is currently run as a luxury, vacation rental which has been featured numerous times in Conde Nast Traveller and awarded "Best rural escape in Spain", Gold List 2019." There is a full team of dedicated staff and service providers that can continue to serve any new owners. These would include, for example, a property manager and concierge, gardener and maintenance person, housekeepers, drivers, and private chefs. If the new owner wanted to continue running the rental business from one or both of the homes on the estate, it would cover the annual maintenance cost and bring in a yearly income.
