PRLog - March 20, 2011 - This spacious restored farmhouse stands above the River Milanos in the olive covered hills just behind the vega (central plain) of Granada less than ten minutes from the bustling agricultural town of Huétor Tájar and less than 15 minutes from the little historic city of Loja. The nearest village, La Fabrica, just a couple of minutes drive away, has 2 bar/restaurants and the towns have all facilities incuding health centres, sports centres with swimming pools and a great selection of shops from modern supermarkets to traditional specialist suppliers. The beautiful city of Granada is about 30 minutes away. This is an perfect location offering the peace and nature of the countryside yet minutes away from all the trappings of civilisation.
The land that comes with the property extends to about 26,000 square metres. Most of this, above and to each side of the house, is hilly and planted with olive trees, although there are also several fig and almond trees. Below the house and next to the river is a large, flat field with a couple of imposing walnut trees. About 20 new fruit trees of all varieties have been planted by the current owners who also grow some vegetables here. With ploughing and more irrigation the field could be used commercially. Below and to the right of the house there is an avenue of poplars belonging to the property with a footpath alongside. This is a lovely spot to observe the bird life which includes nightingales and golden orioles. A lane passes through the land to give access to the olive groves beyond. Occasionally during the day a farmer will pass through but nobody lives beyond here and the lanes above offer wonderful walks with stunning views. The peaks of the Sierra Nevada can be seen from the top ridge.
The buildings consist of the main family house which is joined to another building by a central, walled courtyard. The accommodation in the main house comprises, on the ground floor which is semi open plan, a modern fitted kitchen, dining area and 2 living areas each with a wood burning stove. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms and a good size bathroom. The master bedroom is very spacious.At the front of the main house is a large terrace, paved with slate, and a small garden area with some fruit trees. The courtyard, which can be accessed directly from the house or through large, imposing wooden doors, is also floored with slate. Here there is a new lavatory and a jacuzzi. Across the courtyard there are 3 more rooms. One is used as an office by the current owners but could be a guest bedroom, another, formally the goats’ accommodation, is a useful utility room and the other a large workroom/store/
The property has mains electricity and water is supplied by its own well. The current owners have internet connection via the TooWay satellite system as well as satelliteTV.
The price is incredible value at €195000.
