This is a superb & unique property which offers a fantastic opportunity to live the Spanish dream and at the same time generate a substantial income. The house is set in over 60,000m² (almost 7 hectares) of land, mostly covered with pine trees, in the centre of the Alti Plano in the province of Granada and only a few minutes drive to the town of Cullar with supermarkets, banks and doctors surgery. No traffic jams, clear mountain air, fantastic scenery, over 300 days of sunshine each year, some of the friendliest people you are ever likely to meet and only 90 minutes to the beaches of Almeria and Murcia and 30 minutes to the stunning Lake Negratin.

The original cortijo has been divided into 2 spacious properties. Both houses have three bedrooms (all en-suite) and House 1 has a study/office/4th bedroom as well.

House 1 comprises a very spacious kitchen, separate dining area, a beautiful lounge, large study/office or 4th bedroom and 2 other bedrooms on the ground floor. All rooms feature the original beams and great care has been taken to preserve the character of the buildings whilst still providing all the conveniences of modern living. The master bedroom (on the first floor) is enormous and features a large en-suite bathroom and double glazed sliding doors to a balcony with views over the valley of El Margen to the Sierras de Baza. There is a separate door leading to the first floor sun terrace and a south-east facing double glazed window.

House 2 is very similar with the exception that there is no study/office/4tth bedroom and the living area is slightly smaller.

All ground floor rooms maintain a fairly constant year round temperature of approximately 18°C. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, there is no need for air conditioning or central heating. The property faces south east to take advantage of the morning sun, whilst providing ample shade during the hot afternoons.

Outside of the 2 main houses is a large covered terrace measuring 30 x 4m, an ideal area for al fresco dining. Leading from the terrace is a large paved area in the centre of which is the 10 x 5m swimming pool. The pool is heated by 8 solar panels giving water temperatures of between 25 & 30°C from May to October. Surrounding the paved area is the garden, containing many shrubs and trees, as well garden lighting and a honeysuckle covered pergola.

To the east of the cortijo, but separate from the main houses, there are 3 stunning cave houses available for short, medium or long term rent, providing a substantial income. To the west of the cortijo, but separate from the main houses, is “The Curry Cave” restaurant, as featured on the BBC’s “Living In The Sun” programme. The restaurant has been closed since 2009 for personal reasons, however, it can be seen that considerable potential exists to increase the income from the restaurant, which is sold fully equipped. Alternatively the restaurant could easily be converted back to a luxury 2 bedroom rental cave house.

The whole property could easily be converted in to a large B&B or small hotel. The property´s location would also make it ideal for use as an animal sanctuary, kennels/cattery, garden centre, equestrian centre, activity holiday centre or, with minimal conversion, it could be run as a very nice care home of which there is a growing need in Spain. As a self-catering complex there is the opportunity to have 5 rental properties as well as substantial owner’s accommodation which would be very easy to manage. The rental caves will be sold fully furnished. There is great potential for the rental business in this area and this could be maximised by joining the Andalucian Tourist Board.

The water supply to the property is from its own well containing approx. 20,000 litres, which is served by an underground river. The property has mains electricity, with its own transformer which is not shared by any other property, and internet is also connected.

Please contact us for a more comprehensive presentation of the accommodation on offer and floor plans of the property.

The cortijo is ideally situated for visiting the nature reserves and National Parks of the Sierra de Baza, Sierra de Castril, Sierra de Cazorla and Sierra de Segura. The lakes of Negratin, San Clemente, Bolera and Potillo are a short drive away. The nearby historic towns and villages of Baza, Huescar, Cullar, Galera Castril, Benamaurel, Zujar and Orce, offer a wealth of attractions from museums, hot springs, Arabic fortresses, Roman ruins and numerous excellent restaurants. Cycling, walking, swimming in the lakes, horse riding, bird watching and fishing are all popular activities. Granada airport is approx. 75 minutes´ drive, with Malaga, Almeria, Murcia San Javier and Alicante airports approx. 2 hours away.
