Unbeatable location! Large, completely off the grid country estate with approximately 1.000 m2 built on 6 hectares of land in the Montes de Malaga Natural Park. Set in a truly idyllic location, this property boasts amazing privacy and tremendous tranquility and yet is only 20 – 30 minutes drive from Malaga and the sea. It is one of very few properties in the natural park with an abundant source of water, vegetable gardens, a vineyard and fruit trees. With solar power and its own water source, it is totally self-sufficient. In addition to the main house, it has guest accommodation as well as a caretaker’s house.
This fantastic country estate has three great points that set it apart from other properties: its private location and yet proximity to the city as well as the coast, its adundance of water giving it agricultural possibilities, and its complete independence from the grid. It would be a perfect option for someone looking for a home with no near neighbours, yet wanting to be within short distance from Malaga international airport and the coast. It would also make a perfect project for someone wanting to live off the land, away from the hussle and bussle of city life.
The country estate is set within a beautiful landscape of indigenous Mediterranean forest, with native fauna and flora. The estate consists of various buildings, of approximately 1000 m2 built in total. In the surroundings, there is a beautiful organic orchard with fruit trees, a vegetable garden, a vineyard and a substantial henhouse. A large outdoor barbeque, oven and picnic area for outdoor entertainment is found in front of the main entrance of the house.
The main house, laid out over two floors, consists of a ground floor with a spacious living room with open fireplace, a large kitchen with access to a wonderful wine cellar in which to store the bottles of wine produced on the estate with its own vines, and a bathroom, sauna area and jacuzzi. The upper floor has three bedrooms with two bathrooms, one of them en suite, and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. The house has central heating in all rooms, powered by propane gas stored in a 2.000 litre tank.
Apart from the main house, the estate also enjoys additional accommodation. From the main house, there is access through an interior patio with orange trees to separate guest accommodation of two bedrooms and a bathroom, and to a second, caretaker’s house with four bedrooms and a bathroom.
Along the access road that leads to the main house is a shed with different compartments for different uses, such as horse boxes, storage rooms and spaces for the process of making one’s own wine.
Electricity is completely supplied by solar energy, with photovoltaic panels and batteries (Lithium) of the latest generation with an efficiency of 5.500 Kw. In the case of an incident or extra consumption, there is an auxiliary generator that starts up automatically as required. The water supply to the buildings and orchard is provided by a spring and well, which together with the photovoltaic installation, make this complex an eco-sustainable estate, completely self-sufficient and without supply costs. The property has a wastewater treatment system in place.
The property is along a track of about 5 minutes drive from the nearest road. The access track requires a vehicle with 4×4, well worth it given the property’s unique and private location in a natural park and with no near neighbours, yet so close to the city of Malaga and its coasts (20 – 30 minutes drive).
It is an ideal estate for nature lovers, privacy and the tranquillity of the countryside, where you can practice a large number of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, horse riding, meditation, yoga, etc.
