Fantastic investment and lifestyle opportunity. This is a property with up to seven bedrooms. Highlighted as a 321m2 character property set in a 1360m2 plot with stunning mountain views. It is located 1 KM away from the village of Arboleas in the hamlet next to La Peraltas. This is positioned at the mouth of the Alamazora river. The sale will include additional detached annex (to be finished) that has a licence with a water feature or pool / Jacuzzi that is at the brick stage.
This is a property combined with what was a project annex that cannot be finished by the current owner for personal reasons. The permissions and licences are all in place for it to be finished. The plan was to create a health and relaxation retreat.The main structure of the second property is built to shell with the first fix of electrics. This will appeal to a builder or person seeking a project to finish.
The main house is a cortijo farmhouse consisting of of an entrance lobby with rooms to both left and right hand side. From here there is an ornate set of scrolled double doors leading into the spacious lounge and dining room which has an elevated “stage” area which gives the house a very medieval or renaissance impression that can be associated with Craft Freemasonry.
Alongside the lounge there is a second large independent dining room with access out to a covered patio terrace area, perfect for al fresco dining. This area is also accessed via the fully fitted catering style kitchen that is well equipped and also has a pantry storage room.
On this same floor, there is a further double bedroom and a store room suitable for creating a private family bathroom. This bedroom with its own entrance door would be suitable for staff if required. This level overall offers the possibility for a bed and breakfast / relaxation retreat. The hallway off this room has another entrance which is used for access to the principal home.
A staircase leads up to the first floor. On the left is a large shower room with a double sink and dressing table. There is a large lounge which has adjacent to it, a large double room, smaller room which could be an office and a further double bedroom with dressing area. There is a guest room / office room with a door leading out to the terrace area with stunning views over the surrounding mountain ranges and to the village.
This house a very good value for money as a property on its own without the inclusion of the annex which we will now focus on.
The annex house consists of an arched vestibule style entrance gallery that leads into the lower floor space which at the moment is made up of numerous rooms which just need someone to put their own stamp on them. The original plan was to have a On the ground floor there are various rooms which were going to be massage room and a sauna.In the center of this property there is a very traditional central atrium that covers both the ground and upper floors.
On the upper floor of the “project” annex there are large sliding patio doors that lead from an upper terrace area into a large upper lounge area with a feature center fireplace and has in place a pine clad ceiling. This room was to be used for a projection and games room. There are two additional rooms on this level which was to be a gym and spa / relaxation area. Outside it was planned to have a bar area.
So, with having so much potential, this listing is just calling out for a new owner who would fulfill the full potential of what can only be described as magnificent piece of real estate. Situated only a 2 minute drive away from the lovely town of Arboleas, where you will find all necessary amenities such as bar / restaurants, bank, supermarkets, bakery and much more.
