This detached cottage has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, private swimming pool, and a large terrace with fabulous views over the olive groves and neighbouring countryside. THE PROPERTY IS ABOUT 100 YEARS OLD OR MORE AND HAS BEEN TRADITIONALLY BUILT IN A SPANISH STYLE. However, it has been reformed by the present owners who also added the pool and terrace. The restoration work has been carefully maintaining the original Andalucian features, including the original wood beams, stone stairs and archways, which add to the character and charm of the property and the thick stone walls keep the house cool in the sultry summer months.
The cottage is aptly called Casa en la colina (house on the hill) with simply stunning views and the sunsets need to be seen to be believed... from the large terrace with wooden pergola you have great views overlooks the olive groves, mountains and beyond. a truly idyllic spot, particularly for nature lovers, photographers, artists and anyone looking for a peaceful way of life. And the terrace is an ideal spot for al-fresco dining or for a barbecue with plenty of space for family and friends. The SWIMMING POOL is at the rear of the property and has an enclosed wall around it for extra privacy and round the pool is ample room for a good amount of sun loungers, plus a wc near the pool.
The cottage has a spacious lounge with tiled floors and a wood-burning stove to provide heat in the cooler winter evenings. There is an open-plan dining area next to the kitchen to make it easier to serve meals. The traditional Andalucian-style kitchen is equipped with all essentials including a fridge/freezer, hob and gas oven. There is a separate utility room for storing garden furniture and barbecues. A stone staircase leads to the two double bedrooms, which are at either end of the stairwell. The first bedroom is on the left wing and has a large en-suite bathroom which has a bath with shower over it, WC and wash basin. The other bedroom, on the right wing, has access to the shower room which has a large walk-in shower, WC and wash basin.
The house has solar energy backed up by a generator, which provides all the power for the house.
Location & Lifestyle; The cottage is ideally located for exploring the Andalucian countryside as well as the popular cities of Granada and Malaga, which are about an hour by car, and Sevilla, which is a two-hour drive, and the property it self is about 15 minutes walk to the pretty village of Fuente del Conde which has a bar/restaurant and supermarket and just a short drive from the unspoilt Spanish village of Iznajar which is well worth exploring for its charming narrow streets and castle.
Iznajar also overlooks the largest lake in the whole of Andalucía, which is set among beautiful countryside and mountains. The lake also has a beach and is a wonderful place for sunbathing, relaxing and picnicking.
