A beautiful and very large 4 bedroom, 2/3 bathroom rustic style villa nestled in wonderful mature gardens. This spacious property has been lovingly built with a rustic Andalusian style. The interior has terracotta floors, beamed ceilings, rustic features and beautiful wooden doors. The mature gardens give a feeling of peace and tranquillity and are filled with lush mature Mediterranean plants and shrubs. This property would make the perfect permanent home or holiday retreat.
Situation and outside space
The property is accessed via a part unmade and part concrete road. Driving through mature olive groves the house suddenly appears hidden amongst the gardens. The villa is very private and the setting is tranquil. The house is located just 2km from the village of Colmenar, which in turn is just 30 minutes’ drive from Malaga city.
There are 2 parking areas, from both areas meandering pathways lead through the mature gardens to 2 entrances into the house.
The property offers several terraces where you can sit and enjoy the truly wonderful surroundings all year long, whether you want sunshine or shade there is a space for both.
To the front of the property is a wooden pergola (2.1m x 1.5m) with space for table and chairs and a terraced area that leads to steps and the main access to the house.
Another pathway leads to a stepped access where wisteria entwined arches lead up to the kitchen covered terrace (3.7m x 2.8m). Here there is direct access in to the kitchen and double patio doors from the lounge. This is a lovely area to enjoy a coffee while taking in the garden views.
The gardens need to be experienced to appreciate their beauty. There are 300 year old olive trees mixed with flowering plants and shrubs. Due to careful planting the gardens have colour all year round. If the thought of producing your own honey appeals then this is the perfect setting for bee hives.
The property can be accessed directly from the kitchen or the main entrance depending on where you have parked.
The main entrance opens up into a bright and airy hallway (3.6m x 2.9m) with storage and a utility room (3.0m x 2.0m).
A part glazed door leads into the fully fitted kitchen, which has chestnut wooden cupboards, granite worktops, corner wood burning stove and access out to the covered terrace. Double doors open up into the dining and lounge area which has an open plan feel. The lounge has a central freestanding wood burning stove with feature chimney breast and high sloped ceiling with beam detailing.

Stairs from the hallway lead down into a large open space (18.3m x 4.0m) which has endless possibilities for usage. Off this space you have:
