€289,995 ~ £250,454 *


This is a simply stunning, two-storey detached cortijo situated on a hectare plot of usable land, offering a private swimming pool, stables for three horses and two large paddocks, plus the bonus of some impressive views of the mountains and vast surrounding countryside, located in a rural location within the municipality of Albox. The property is situated up a smooth track of around 1.5km and located less than 15 minutes drive from the bustling town of Albox itself, offering numerous amenities such as bars, restaurants, shops, banks, supermarkets and far more.

Upon arrival at the property, you will see the paddocks situated to one side of the plot and all the buildings situated to the other side, accessed through large double gates into an immense parking area, sufficient for multiple vehicles. Additionally, there is a double carport plus the addition of a garage at the end of the stable block. Once within the partly-walled grounds of the property, you will find numerous garden areas ideal for growing a variety of fruit trees or simply for pottering around, plus the all-important swimming pool area with plenty of patio and a bar area.

Heading through a gate located at the front of the house leads into an outdoors entrance area, with a charming courtyard to your left and another access point to the property to the right, most of which has been enclosed and is used as a porch/conservatory space. Once through the main entrance, you will find yourself in a large entrance hallway that runs through into the various different rooms of the ground floor of the property. Directly to your left is the long living room with beamed ceilings, a theme that runs throughout the entirety of the property, and a large log-burning fire situated at the end of the room. Heading in the opposite direction from the entrance hallway leads into an equally large room, currently used as an office space.

Continuing through from the entrance hallway leads directly into a vast and traditional kitchen-diner. There is plenty of storage on offer within the kitchen but also thanks to a large unit in the dining area. The staircase leading to the upstairs of the property leads off of this room, allowing for some further handy storage space underneath the staircase. Heading through from the kitchen once more leads into another room and onwards into a separate dining room, large enough for a large dining set.

Attached to the dining room is an outdoors space, completely covered and with full fly-free netting, which is being used as a wonderful outdoor living-dining space. This space also runs alongside the kitchen, with there being a large window between these two spaces ideal for passing kitchen produce out to this space, making it an ideal entertaining space.

Additionally, on the ground floor, is an entire space that could be used as a separate annexe. This space can be accessed from two points within the house currently, either through the office or on the staircase to the upstairs of the property while also having external access, but this space could easily be completely isolated from the main property. Heading through the aforementioned conservatory space, you will enter an open main living space, consisting of lounge, dining and kitchen spaces. This area is fully equipped for the purpose, the kitchen offering sufficient storage. Additional to this is the bedroom, ( currently been used as a music room) large enough for a double bed, with the added bonus of an en-suite bathroom equipped with a shower.

The property was originally designed to be used as a B&B, with the entire upstairs of the property consisting of four bedrooms, all of which are equipped with en-suite bathrooms, as well as an extra family bathroom. The first bedroom is a spacious double room with storage units, and a simply beautiful en-suite bathroom equipped with both a shower and a standalone bathtub.The second bedroom havs its own en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle. The remaining two bedrooms are very similar, both having en-suite bathrooms with shower cubicles. The family bathroom is a spacious room equipped with a bathtub.

A wonderful property that can only be appreciated by viewing it.


Today I spent some time in and around the traditional white-washed Spanish market town Albox a very pleasant 45-50 minute drive inland from the coast with stunning countryside views of olive groves, orchards and exceptional hill and valley views. Situated in the heart of the Almanzora Valley...
