Set in almost 3.000 m2 of private gardens, in a rural setting with easy access, this outstanding property with its ample, well-appointed dwelling and its short distance to Lake Iznajar, Andalusia’s inland sea, offers either a country lifestyle or an income from holiday rentals. The immaculately maintained home on two floors is built in the style typical of a cortijo, the country homes of Andalusia, around a vine covered courtyard. The main feature of the very spacious L shaped lounge and dining room is a large brick fireplace. It has a fully fitted timber kitchen with granite bench tops. Rustic features such as vaulted ceilings with the original exposed beams have been respected during the refurbishment of this traditional home. Timber window shutters, rustic flooring and heavy wooden entrance doors add to the rustic feel and authenticity of the cortijo. The six double bedrooms are all very spacious rooms, the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and there are a further two full bathrooms and another smaller room with W.C. and hand basin. There is also a utility/laundry room. The home is very well equipped with air-conditioning, oil fired central heating and satellite T.V. The plot, which is bounded on each side by a stream, is planted with olive and fruit trees and gently slopes down to where the two streams meet, in a wooded valley, providing a shady verdant area which is lush and green at any time of year. Extensive paved terraces for relaxing in the sun, or under the shady pergola surround the pool area, where there is also a Jacuzzi. The property lies in a rural area which is a traditional olive growing region, and views are of rolling hills and olive groves. Iznajar and the beautiful lake of the same name are only about 10 minutes’ drive away. Iznajar is a peaceful and idyllic country town perched on a hill above the lake, which is the largest inland expanse of water in Andalusia, where you may swim, fish, sail or rent canoes and which in summer boasts a beach, complete with a chiringuito, picnic grounds and barbecues. Services Mains water, mains electricity, broadband available in the area, central heating and air-conditioning.
