Cortijo Guarda: Property for sale in Cortijo Grande
Charming cortijo for sale set in the beautiful, peaceful valley of Cortijo Grande with stunning views of the Sierra Cabrera mountains and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants.
Part of the villa was originally built in 1900 in the typical cortijo style of the area with thick walls and wooden beamed ceilings. The current owners then extended the house in 2015/16 to almost double the size of the original cortijo, and so this half is completely newly built.
You approach the house on a road that skirts around the golf course (not in use at present) and through the gate to the villa with plenty of space to park several cars under the shade of trees.
Walking down a path on one side of the property you come to the front door that leads into a hall with the large winter sitting room off to the right. This room has an open fireplace, wooden beamed ceilings and two sets of doors, one that takes you out to the BBQ area with plenty of space for table and chairs, and the other leading to the swimming pool. Off the hall, under the stairs, is a shower room. Then off to the left is a very large sitting - dining room with an American style kitchen. There are 2 sets of patio doors that lead out to the porch and pool. The kitchen is new (from 2016) with bespoke carpentry and a double fridge with drinking water. This lounge / diner / kitchen is also south facing.
Upstairs on the landing there are wardrobes for lots of storage. In the new part of the house there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom with bath plus shower and large windows looking to the pool. There is another double bedroom on this side and across the hall a big bathroom with bath and shower. On the cortijo side of the property are 3 double bedrooms and another family bathroom. There are mobile AC/H units in all the bedrooms except one and the winter sitting room. There are flyscreens on all the windows.
On the side of the house is a storage / utility room with independent access. This houses the industrial water softner.
The garden is terraced and filled with plants and lots of trees for shade in the summer. There is even an old stone bread oven in the garden which can still be used.
Included in the sale price are the white goods and fixtures & fittings.
