This beautiful and large country house in Mojacar is built on a terrain of 7650m2, right next to the village of Mojacar. This is a renovation project. The property is located in a valley, just a two minute drive from the village. The architecture is that of a unique Andalusian Cortijo. It is located in a residential valley, with views of the historic village of Mojacar, the valley and the mountains.
The cortijo is easily accessible from the paved public road, just 4 km from the beach. Mojacar is known as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain and its history as an artists’ village gives it this extra vivacity. It is above all a picturesque and authentic village, with stunning views over the sea. The village itself is surrounded by a protected natural area, and, as such, retains a modicum of its secluded, cosy feel.
This dwelling consists of a spacious house of 312m2 with, comfortably on one ground floor, a spacious entrance hall, five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest toilet, an ample dining and living room with fireplace and high ceilings with exposed beams, a large kitchen with laundry room which opens onto the terrace and to the back leads to a south oriented currently covered patio that faces the tennis court and the village of Mojacar.
Independent from the house is a large parking area with two individual garages. Above the garage is a comfortable guest house of 40m2 with small living room with fireplace, kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom and a romantic balcony that is also the entrance to the house.
The outdoor areas consist of a semicircular shaded terrace with views over the garden, the surrounding area and the large pool, there are several gardens, lawns and a large variety of trees and shrubs, as well as a terrain that was once the orchard and that is accessed through a floral arch from the backyard. There is a tennis court which must however be repaved and repaired.
Structurally the house is in good condition and the exquisite architectural details in the property make a renovation more than worth the effort. The wooden windows with shutters and blinds are very characteristic and were recovered from an ancient antique monastery just as the impressive carved wooden entry door. The floors consist of beautiful tiles, though hidden in the lounge under a broadloom carpet.
The house has electricity, central heating, tap water and rights to usage of mountain spring water that is currently not being utilized, however the pipes run to the garden area. The entire plot is fenced, mainly walled and partly lined with a fence.
This is a unique opportunity to restore a character property to its former glory and that comes with a large plot that is quite unique in the immediate vicinity of the village of Mojacar and its beach resort, Mojacar Playa.
Mojacar is 1 km from the house; Mojacar Playa at 4 km. Garrucha is 5km, Vera 10km and Vera Playa 7km. The entrance to the motorway is 5km away and the nearest airports are Almeria (45 min), Murcia (70 min) and Alicante (120 min.).
