Great opportunity to buy this two bedroom cortijo over two floors. The upstairs leads from the entrance into a large open reception hall with storage space for shoes, coats etc. Off from this room there is access to the family shower room, with lovely tiled shower area and washbasin etc. Also a door through to the kitchen with a traditional Alpujarra style kitchen with beamed ceiling and window to the front elevation. A staircase leads down to the lower floor into a large sitting room with fireplcae, two windows and a door out onto the covered terrace with ample space for dining or sitting in the sun admiring the wonderful view. Off the sitting room at either end is access to the two double bedrooms, again with lovely beamed ceilings and windows to the front elevation.
A separate stone faced letting casita situated at the other end of the land, therefore giving privacy to guest has an open plan living room, bedroom kitchen and separate bathroom with shower and compost wc. The casita is full of character, lots of wooden beams, at the fron of the casita there is a lovely covered terrace with wonderful views down over the valley. The property has been recently renovated and has good quality insulation and finished to a high standard.
The 9000m2 of land is mainly flat land affording wonderful views of the Sierra Lujar Mountain Range and down towards the coast at Salobrena, There are a variety of fruit trees, olives, almonds etc. Around the family cortijo there is a mature garden area with a range of plants, also a small plunge pool, ideal for those hot summer days!. The access track to the land is shared with a neighbour which then splits to the two properties. The track is dirt and around 800 meters long and is maintained by the two owners.
Mains Electricity is connected. Water is supplied from the Acequia and stored into an Alberca. Internet is available from several local suppliers.
It takes around 12 minutes by car to get to Orgiva, the nearest town. You’ll find banks, cash machines, post office, various supermarkets, numerous bars & restaurants, 3 health shops, a police station, all schools and 24 h medical services.
Orgiva has developed into a small centre of alternative culture, combining old Spanish tradition with the ecological lifestyle of a young foreign community.

Granada is a 50 minutes’ drive away. Another 30 minutes take you to the ski resort of Sierra Nevada. Skiing is possible between December and May. The highest lifts take you up to 3.400 metres and from there one enjoys unforgettable views of Granada and right across the Med to Africa.
The Moors lived until the end of the 16th century in the Alpujarras. We not only still use their water channels and water deposits, but their original arabic names too. A proposal has recently been submitted to declare the Alpujarras a UNESCO world heritage site.
Hiking is pure pleasure here. It takes a 20 minute car drive to reach the borders of the National Park of Sierra Nevada. You can watch eagles circle in the blue skies, see ibexes fearlessly cross the cliffs above you and feel part of the magnificence of untouched nature all around.
