A delightful, rustic style, original cortijo, over 100 years old, bursting with character, in a stunning, very private location with equally stunning views. A dirt track of around 500m leads from the Solano area of Colmenar, around 10 minutes from the village. There is ample parking in the form of a car port, a large lockable garage/workshop (4.25 x 3m) and a store shed (2 x 1.5m) . Here also is a small stable / storage unit of 3 x 3.5m, and shallow steps lead down through irrigated gardens, to the cottage. The cottage is accessed via a covered, glassed terrace of 31.5m2 which makes a wonderful extra room that can be used all year round, This lovely, light area is 9 x 3.25m and the views all around of the mountains and rocky summits are breathtaking! This conservatory area has sliding double glazed windows and a glass, double glazed door at both ends, and has hot/cold air conditioning installed. At the far end, the door opens onto a lovely open, paved terrace area of 13 x 4m, ideal for alfresco dining and living. And from here one can take a number of paths leads across the land, which is accessible, incredibly natural and very beautiful. There is plenty of space to add an above ground pool for use in the Summer months to cool off. From the conservatory, there are two doors into the house. The first leads into the original, farmhouse style kitchen. This lovely room is 3.25 x 3m, and still has its original chimney and high, sloping, beamed ceiling. The second door, consisting of double wooden doors with pretty stained glass insets, leads into the rest of the house. We walk firstly into the living room. Once again, this room has an original fireplace with moulded plaster alcoves and shelving around it, At present a gas fire is in place, but the original open fireplace with woodburner is installed behind a panelThe living room is 5 x 3m with high, sloping ceiling with original beams in excellent condition. The living room also has hot/cold air conditioning installed. To the left of the living room is a door into the first bedroom, also with thick walls, beamed sloping ceiling and a window out to the conservatory. This room is 3 x 3m. To the rear of the living room are two doors. The first leads to the second bedroom, 3 x 3m with window the rear and sloping beamed ceiling, from where another door within leads to the study / bedroom 3, of 3 x 2.5m which was the original mule stable. The second door to the rear of the living room leads into the bathroom. The bathroom is a generous 3.5 x 2.5m and has two doors - one to the living room, and the other to the second bedroom. It would be very easy to divide this very large bathroom into two, making a smaller ensuite shower room for bedroom 2, for example, and a larger family bathroom with the remaining part, accessed from the living room. This lovely old house is in excellent condition. The location is totally peaceful and private but not too far away are other country houses and very good neighbours. An ideal country retreat for anyone wishing to unwind in a beautiful, natural environment.
