A well-cared for and productive finca of 38.5 hectares, with cork oaks, olive groves and an orchard, a charming four bedroom farmhouse of 300 m2, a lovely covered porch and a swimming pool with breathtaking views as well as various outbuildings and eight other small buildings that could be used for rural tourism. Found high up in the Natural Park, between Galaroza and La Nava, this property has a great location, plenty of water and is in excellent condition.
On arriving at the finca, one quickly realises that it is a special place. High up in the Natural Park and with an abundance of trees and breathtaking views, the property enjoys a comfortable entrance, a well oriented swimming pool and a covered porch for outside entertainment. The farmhouse of 300 m2, well-maintained over the 30 years since it was built in 1990 by the current owner, is laid out over two floors.
On the ground floor is a large open plan living space with a dining area, a living area with an open fireplace, and a spacious kitchen around the corner, which has been designed to be open to the living area but up a few stairs on a higher level. It gives the house a great open feel and makes it a great space for entertaining friends and family. Also on this floor are two double bedrooms that lead off from the dining area.
The upper floor has a second living area as well as two more bedrooms and a large bathroom with a shower.
The property also has scope for being extended. In addition to the main house, an adjoining outbuilding, which is currently used as a workshop on the ground floor and as a store room upstairs, could allow for more bedrooms and bathrooms to be easily added. Underneath the pool, there is also a further 36 m2 which could be converted into a studio or guest apartment.
The property has the added advantage of two sources of income potential:
Firstly, there is great potential for anyone looking to enjoy country living and at the same time run a rural tourism business from home: the finca has 8 small buildings spread all over the estate, of which 5 are restored, with road access and electricity and water at the door of the houses, making it possible to convert the finca into a tourist project with not too much investment.
And secondly, the owner has productive groves which currently provide income: the finca has more than 5.000 olive trees in production, a cork oak pasture with more than 750 quintals of cork in the last harvest of 2020, two areas of chestnut groves and an orchard of almost half a hectare. The farm is registered in ecological agriculture, it is fenced all around with cattle mesh, with 14 interior fences and water points in all of them, making it ideal for keeping cattle too.
The property has plenty of water, both from two springs with their respective water pumps and one of them with a pool or cistern, as well as a borehole well. The property has electricity, buried throughout the property, reaching different points of access.
Well maintained, in excellent condition and in a great location.
