Description:LOOKING FOR A NEW LIFESTYLE/INVESTMENT IN A BEAUTIFUL AREA OF SOUTHERN SPAIN IF SO MY PROPERTY COULD BE EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.....
I am a retired Interior Designer/Decorator and now selling my beautiful property so why not make me an offer on this immaculate 5 plus bedrooms,4 bathrooms,3 living rooms,2 kitchens detached home with a beautiful pool and internal courtyard in a small hamlet near Lake Iznajar, Province of Cordoba. The property has the bonus of a tourism licence for earning that extra income.
This substantial property is unique in many ways and will appeal to buyers who are looking for the following:
♦ A large home that offers flexibility in the way it is used – as one large home, for an extended family to live independently from each other yet under one roof or perhaps part of the property being used as a holiday rental.
♦ If offering a high quality holiday rental or perhaps running a boutique style B & B appeals to you, the property already has a tourism licence in place for self catering.
♦ A charming central courtyard with rustic beams and solid wood doors that links one area of the house to the other.
♦ A low maintenance garden with swimming pool and terraces rather than a huge, labour intensive plot of land that takes time and energy to care for. The garden that surrounds this immaculate home is perfect to give privacy and enough space to lounge, dine, relax, swim and enjoy low maintenance gardening.
♦ Easy access, off a quality tarmac road that delivers you to either of the two impressive Cortijo style entrance gates (one at the top and the other at the bottom of the land). No bumpy dirt tracks here!
♦ Neighbours are near you in the hamlet of Los Juncares, to give a community feel rather than an isolated location in the middle of nowhere.
♦ The hamlet has a bar (open lunchtime and evenings – no food), a community hall where festivities are held throughout the year, there is a high fenced 5-a-side football pitch with basketball nets and a children’s playground.
♦ The most popular bar/restaurant in the area that serves the very best local cuisine with local produce is just 5 mins’ drive away and Iznajar village and lakeside beach is 8 mins’ drive.
♦ Open and beautiful countryside views without the need to be miles from anywhere!
♦ A 13M x 6M swimming pool, ready to enjoy with ornamental waterfall filtration system. A pool may seem like a standard requirement for a home in Spain; however swimming pools in a countryside location (even in a rural hamlet) are no longer allowed to be constructed. You can float around in this one as soon as you arrive – before you unpack if you like!
♦ A ready to move into home immaculately maintained all year round as the owners live in the property permanently. Styled with quality fixtures and fitting which may appeal to your taste and save you from needing to do any decorating at all!
♦ If desired and to your liking, the property comes partly furnished and includes all soft furnishing and fittings (by separate negotiation). However, if you prefer everything to be removed from the property, this can be organised also.
♦ Home comforts are in place for year round enjoyment of this large home. Air-conditioning (cooling & heating), and two log burning stoves.
♦ Appreciate Andalusian styling but want the benefit of more modern finishes. All the windows and French doors in the property are traditional in style, wooden and double glazed. Reproduction Andalusian style wooden external doors with iron studs add to the charm but take away from the work of the older doors.
♦ Mains water, mains electricity, pumped well water for the pool, pond and automated irrigation system and Broadband internet all add to the convenience of living in the home as does Sky TV (UK) via satellite and a Skype phone system (or use a mobile phone as the area has very good mobile reception).
♦ Perhaps, you want to work from home – there is an office ready for use.
♦ Maybe, you have a large family to house full time or, perhaps they or many friends will visit and want to stay over. There are enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate everyone!
• Living/dining area off the kitchen with large free standing log burner, (the room could be connected to the Sky TV system if desired). The 2nd terrace/balcony is accessed from this room.
• Sitting room: Marble fireplace with inset log burner and Sky UK channels cabled to the room.
• Kitchen (off the living/dining room) has granite worktops and integrated appliances.
• Utility room (exit to kitchen). All appliances are available for sale.
• Office (exit to living/dining room).
• Library/Study with free standing bookcases, shelves and cupboards.
• 5 plus Bedrooms, all good size doubles with fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 1 has air-conditioning and bedroom 5 is an attic room with beautifully beamed ceiling.
• 4 Bathrooms (one being en-suite to the master bedroom with luxurious fittings and corner bath and shower enclosure also a new en-suite to Attic Bedroom).
* Please note that I have added a second fitted kitchen with granite worktops and plinths to the property in August 2017.
The house of 337 m2 sits in the middle of its plot of land of 1,545 m2 with high walls and railings for privacy. There are numerous terraces (covered and open), a large swimming pool, a lawned area, ornamental garden with pond and decked area under a grand old oak tree, planting of palms and yuccas, some fruit trees and ample parking. The water well house is an attractive, pitched roof outbuilding. There is also a workshop with workbench, power and light.
Located within the hamlet of Los Juncares with it’s little bar, community hall, sports facilities and kids playground, 5 mins’ by car to one of the best bar/restaurants in the area and just 8 mins’ drive from the lakeside village/small town of Iznajar. The village has all the amenities necessary for everyday living to include a medical Centre (with 24 hour stand-by ambulance), shops, bars, restaurants, a market etc. The road from the property to the village is in very good condition. Iznajar also has a beautiful lake with beach, non motorised water sports and lakeside restaurants. The village is a welcoming place with locals mixing happily alongside many different nationalities that live in the area.
There are walking trails, clubs and sporting activities to join in with.
Malaga airport is 1 hours’ drive.
Iznajar comes under the Cordoba province and driving in any direction will take you to one of Andalusia's historic cities.
