Cortijo for Sale in Cantoria, Almería
Cortijo Caminante - A country house in the Cantoria area. (Renovated)
!! REDUCED !! Spacious 5 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom detached country house with garage & workshop, situated within walking distance or 5 minutes drive of the charming village of Almanzora as well as the large town of Albox.
Access to the property is via a tarmac road, with the final 200m via a rambla track (dry riverbed). From here, steps and a concrete driveway lead up to the 32m2 garage, and to the side of the garage a pedestrian gate leads into a lovely sunny terrace to the front of the house. A pathway leads along the side of the house to the front door which opens into a large dual aspect kitchen fitted with a good range of storage units, a gas hob with extractor and an electric oven. To one end of the kitchen, a door leads into an adjoining pantry / utility room which also gives access to a cloakroom with WC & basin.
An open doorway leads from the kitchen through to a good sized lounge with ceiling fan and open marble fireplace. A doorway off the lounge leads through to an internal hallway with access two bedrooms and a sunny conservatory which stretches the entire width of the house and has three sets of patio doors opening out to the front terrace. Bedroom 1 benefits from a large ensuite bathroom comprising full size bath, WC and pedestal basin, and Bedroom 2 could equally be used as a dining room if preferred. Both bedrooms have windows looking out to the conservatory, allowing the flow of natural light.
From the kitchen, a marble staircase leads up to the first floor where a landing area makes an ideal office / study space. The first floor comprises 3 double bedrooms and a spacious shower room with tiled shower cubicle with glazed door, WC and basin. One of the first floor bedrooms is very large and could be used as a second lounge if preferred. Whilst the property has previously been renovated throughout, it is in need of a little TLC & redecoration and this is reflected in the price.
Outside, the front terrace is very private - perfect for sunbathing and alfresco dining, and offers ample space for an above ground pool. The 18m2 workshop leads off the terrace and has direct access to the garage. The property is set in a plot of around 600m2 which is planted with mature olive trees, along with a pomegranate tree and grape vines.
The village of Almanzora offers all amenities for daily living including tapas bars, small supermarkets, post office, bank, medical centre, pharmacy, and a municipal pool which is open during the summer months. The large town of Albox offers all amenities including a wide range of shops, supermarkets, banks, cafes, tapas bars, restaurants, schools, sports facilities and a 24 hour medical centre. There are also two weekly street markets. Albox is around 40 minutes from the coast and just over an hour from Almeria airport.
