Cortijo for Sale in Cantoria, Almería
Casa Silvia - A country house in the Cantoria area. (Renovated)
This charming detached house is set on the edge of a small hamlet within walking distance of all the amenities of the village of Almanzora. With the added benefit of a 6000m2 plot and a pool it is well worth viewing.
The house is set in a fully fenced plot with to the side a large set of double gates which open onto a large paved parking area, suitable for at least 4/5 cars. A large covered car port and workshop complete this part of the property. To the front of the house a 36m2 covered terrace provides an all weather place to sit and look across the river valley to the village and mountains beyond. Large enough for both dining and seating areas with two additional door leading to the garden below the house and the pool and BBQ area at the far side of the house.
Traditional style double wooden doors open into the good sized lounge, which has high beamed ceilings and a ceiling fan. A decorative pattern on the floor is set in the terracotta floor tiles. Large shuttered windows to the front look out onto the covered terrace and a window at the side overlooks the pool area. A door on the right opens into a double bedroom with large shuttered windows.
From the lounge a double doorway opens into the kitchen/diner. This room is again a very good size with a small fitted kitchen along one wall, there is ample space to remodel the kitchen to include an island if required. The dining end of the kitchen has a window overlooking the paved parking area and features a fireplace housing a wood burner, a built in wine rack allows of plenty of storage. A door at the far end of the kitchen opens into the ground floor bathroom. This comprises a large recently modern walk in glazed shower cubicle, WC, original corner shower and basin set in a vanity storage unit.
From the kitchen another door takes us out to the pantry and utility area which has the back door opening into the side pool garden. A new electric hot water boiler has been installed in the utility room which has ample space for a washing machine, dryer and with additional storage.
Stairs from the dining area lead to the first floor. A landing area with eaves storage could be converted easily into a 3rd bedroom on the first floor if required or would make a great study area. A door from here opens into a very good sized double bedroom with corner glazed shower cubicle and basin with a separate WC, this could easily be altered to create a separate en-suite shower room. From the top of the stairs a door ahead opens into the very large master bedroom, with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite with corner bath, separate shower cubicle, EC, bidet and basin set in a marble topped vanity unit.
Outside the property to the front and reached by a short set of steps is a good area of flat land of some 1,000M2 currently planted with an assortment of olive and citrus trees. A separate fenced area to the side houses the water tank and could be cleared to plant further trees. From the side door of the terrace we access the side garden and pool area. This area is paved and tiled and the plunge pool which measures 4m x 4m and is in need of some TLC is set in the top half. There are also two storage sheds here and BBQ. The garden has great views over Almanzora to Albox and the hills beyond. The additional plot of land is hillside beyond the house.
This property is unusual in being set in a hamlet but with a generous plot of very useable land. With a little bit of modernisation this house could make a great family or retirement home, close to a village with all amenities and the market town of Albox within a 10 minute drive. Well worth viewing.
