You want to move to the south of Spain and you want to buy an old farmhouse and maybe even start a BB there. You are handy, so it may need some work. You dream of a house that you can furnish according to your own taste, and where you can receive your friends or future guests in the atmosphere that you have in mind. Authentic, atmospheric, close to a village where you can experience the real Spanish life.
Spain is a big country, so you have been looking for the perfect place for quite some time. Your search has brought you to Andalusia, in the province of Almería. And there, just below the white mountain village of Vélez Blanco, on the edge of the ´Sierra María los Vélez´ Natural Park, this cortijo is waiting for you. Let us take a look.
The partially renovated cortijo, with views of the village and the surrounding mountains, is situated on a plot of over 2,300 m2. There are some almonds on the property and part of the land has traditionally been used for separating grain. With this property you are entitled to ´horas de agua´, which means that there is water available for irrigating your plants. The property itself is connected to the village water network and has electricity.
Let´s enter the 100-year-old cortijo. We start in the renovated part. The house consists of two floors and has a living room, kitchen, bathroom and five bedrooms. All have aluminium window frames and double glazing. Adjacent to this part of the house, which is in need of some modernisation, we find a patio, shaded by a beautiful grape, and a barbecue area with space to store the wood. Just imagine how attractive this outdoor area could become. Can you imagine enjoying a good book and a glass of Spanish wine here?
Let´s have a look at the older part of the house. It certainly needs some work, but what possibilities there are here. If you raise the roof a few stones, you can create two large rooms upstairs. Just imagine how attractive this will be, with the roughly plastered walls and larger windows giving you a beautiful view of the surroundings. Downstairs there is a nice space that can be used as a kitchen diner, and there is room for a dining room and a spacious bathroom.
Also in this part of the house we find a patio, walled with a beautiful stone wall. Adjacent to the patio we find the garage, spacious enough for your car, or for the storage of materials.
If you are looking for an affordable, authentic farmhouse under the Spanish sun, then this property might be of interest to you.
