Cortijo Mario – A country house in the Albox area. (Renovated)
Impressive detached 4+ bedroom country house with fabulous 6.5x4m above ground pool and magnificent valley views.
This lovingly renovated two storey property for sale in Almeria Province is situated in the popular Rambla de Oria area, within walking distance of the local bar / restaurant, and 15 minutes drive from the towns of Albox and Oria, both of which offer a wide range of amenities including shops, supermarkets, cafes, tapas bars, restaurants, schools, banks, sports facilities, 24 hour medical centres, and weekly markets.
With a build size of 228m2, the property is set in a plot of around 3000m2 with ample parking for several vehicles. Wrought iron gates open into the top section of a large terrace which offers plenty of room to sit back and relax whilst taking in the amazing views. There are two doors into the property – the first takes you into a bright lounge / dining room which has a lovely feel to it with lots of original features including a large log burner. Three good sized bedrooms lead off the living area, one of which is currently used as a study / sitting room, and further down the hall is a bathroom which is beautifully decorated in keeping with the property.
The kitchen is a great size and offers all mod cons whilst maintaining a traditional feel. There is also a good sized larder / utility room which is an added bonus. From the kitchen is the second door which leads back to the terrace. Stairs lead up to the top floor which currently comprises one further double bedroom,and a very long open plan room which is in good repair and could be divided to create further bedrooms and a bathroom if required.
To the left of the terrace is an outbuilding which was originally used as an outside kitchen and again is ready to be finished off. It has a lovely seating area in front so could be made into a small guest apartment. From here is the wood yard and another smaller area to do with what you want.
The garden has been set at different levels, with steps leading down to the pool area with decking and borders planted with a variety of native plants & trees including fig, apricot and pomegranate. There is also another seating area to chill out, again with fabulous views. On a lower level is a vegetable garden and an old cave which the current owners use for storage. Another section of garden is yet to be landscaped, so remains a blank canvas for the new owners!
