18th Century Listed Property with Urban Land
A rare opportunity to buy a fully restored 18th century stately home set in approx. 10,000 square metres of land (1 hectare) with majestic views over mountains and Mediterranean. Plus, planning permission granted for up to 9 terraced properties within 2,000 m2. New builds are more popular than ever since the pandemic. So a real investment is on offer here.
Main House 6 Bedrooms all ensuite
The main house comprises of six bedrooms, (all with en suite shower), a dining hall, sitting room, drawing room, kitchen, butler’s pantry with laundry cupboard and a guest cloakroom. As you would expect, there is an impressive sweeping staircase leading to the grand salon with self-supporting beams, open fireplace, south facing outside balcony (approx. 30 square metres) and 2nd balcony overlooking the main entrance.
The kitchen consists of two working hobs and ovens, having catered to large functions. It is ideal for catering to large groups and also to teach gourmet chef courses.
Well Maintained Grounds with Loggia
The stunning, manicured and mature gardens are a valuable feature with ‘Casita’ bar, an outside kitchen and dining area, the swimming pool, which has a unique kidney shape and the covered loggia and gazebo. The historic wishing well is also located here.
Separate Staff Quarters
Additional separate staff cottage with one bedroom, kitchen, open plan sitting and dining area, bathroom and covered private terrace to the rear. This is on 1 floor with small patio looking west into the woodlands and with wonderful sunsets. This cottage is near the chicken coop and enclosure for free range chickens and eggs.
In the grounds, conveniently located but out of view, is a utilities’ outbuilding for central heating / hot water boiler, solar power, water reservoir for 20,000 litres, three phase electricity supply (ideal for electric car charging) and water pumps.
The private well produces 1 litre per second of drinking water, there is also treated, potable water from the town hall. No need to irrigate with expensive metered water though!
Olive and Fruit Tree Orchard
There are 90 olive trees plus an assortment of fruit, citrus and fig trees interspersed with mature palms in the grounds. There is also a wooded area with a mixture of eucalyptus and casuarinas
Planning Permission for 9 Townhouses
The property has been granted planning permission for construction of a further 2000 m2 and plans approved for 9 town houses. This is in stark contrast with the majority of properties set in 1 hectare of land – where the ground is classified as rustic for cattle or arable produce. This finca has land rights and planning permission, it’s a big deal! Plus, they are open to serious offers.
This 18th century home and grounds is ideal for Country Club, Boutique Hotel/Cortijo, Gastronomy School for Michelin Chefs, etc.
