Lovingly restored 6 bed 2 bath village house with courtyard gardens, outside bar and entertaining area Cantoria
If you are looking for a more traditional style property then this one would be ideal. It has been lovingly restored to an excellent standard retaining many character features but also incorporating modern style living. It is located in a hamlet of similar traditional style properties 5 minutes drive from the village of Arboleas and it is a very close walk to a bar and also a small convenience store. Arboleas has all the amenities you require for day to day living including supermarkets, medical centre, chemists, banks, tapas bars etc. The larger towns of Cantoria and Albox are 10 minutes drive away with many more facilities. The med coast resorts of Vera Playa, Mojacar etc can be reached in 30 to 40 minutes and there are three airports within easy reach via excellent motorway connections, Almeria, Murcia and Alicante.
The property is an impressive two storey property which has a fully walled courtyard garden to the front laid partly to terrace and partly to gravel with established trees, shrubs and plants and there is a covered terrace from which to enjoy shade. There are double entrance gates and also a separate pedestrian gate. A traditional farmhouse door leads to a spacious 8m hallway with a double bedroom to each side . A door then leads to a 36m lounge and dining room with a free standing log burning fire. Off the dining area an archway leads to a newly fitted quality kitchen with granite worktops (9m). A doo then leads from the lounge area to a small hallway with access to a downstairs shower room of 4m and then a single access door leads to a fly enclosed rear terrace with bbq for alfresco dining. From here is access to a lovely private rear terrace of approx 80m with plenty of space to relax with a wood built sauna and a bar for entertaining' There is also an 18m store room which could easily be converted into a little annexe as it already has a hand basin and wc. From the bar a door leads back into the hallway with marble stairs then leading to the first floor. There is along T shape landing with high wooden ceiling leading to 4 additional bedrooms, a family shower room and an upstairs kitchen and laundry room. The house was originally separated into two dwellings, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor and this could easily and not too expensively done again. Double doors lead from the upstairs landing to the master bedroom of 24m with two sets of double doors leading to Juliet balconies with lovely country views. There is a very high impressive wood ceiling and two walk in wardrobes, his and hers. There are then three additional upstairs guest bedrooms all with the high wood ceilings, a spacious family shower room and a 9m fully fitted kitchen leading to a laundry room.
There is a patch of land opposite the house which is currently used partly for parking and the remainder planted with fruit trees.
This is a beautifully reformed traditional style property which offers considerably more in terms of living space than an average villa style property. It would be ideal for someone looking to run a bed and breakfast or rental business but also has the option to incorporate an independent living space within the property for family etc with its own access.
