Exclusive to Dream Homes Almeria and an absolute gem of a property
This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a very individual and unique property located in the heart of a small town just 45 minutes inland from the Mediterranean coastline. Cantoria, a very traditional small Spanish town has all the amenities you would expect to find, small supermarkets, shops, banks, primary and secondary schools, medical centre, chemists, post office, pavement taps bars and restaurants set in the lovely townhall square and dotted around the town and a thriving weekly street market on Wednesdays.
The property is very unique and individual being in the heart of the town within very easy walk of all of the amenities above and still having a very good size 638m garden and a private swimming pool. Most village houses have little or no outside space, perhaps a courtyard or a roof terrace and are terraced as opposed to detached. They are also very rarely sold but handed down through the generations of Spanish families so to be able to find and purchase such a property is very rare indeed.
The property is a whopping 310m over two floors and would be ideal for a family wanting to live in a more Spanish environment without the compromise on outside space. It has a separate one-bedroom annexe which could easily be rented out to provide additional income or for visiting family or friends to have their own privacy.
The front door opens into an impressive gated courtyard with an archway that leads through to the garden. There are built in storage cupboards in the courtyard and to the right is the front door leading to the main house. Through the archway takes you to the garden which is very well established but low maintenance with local plants, shrubs for colour and fruit trees. There is a 5 x 5 m heated swimming pool with surrounding terraces, paved terrace for alfresco dining, a covered terrace and a jacuzzi. There is access to an 18m garage which houses the boiler for oil fired central heating, a water softener and a drinking water system. Also accessed to the left of the courtyard is the annexe which is approximately 30m and incorporates a lounge with double doors leading out to the covered terrace and on to the garden, an en suite shower room and a step up to a raised double bedroom.
The main house has been reformed to a high standard and whilst it retains many of the original features of this traditional style property such as wooden shuttered windows and beamed ceilings but at the same time offers the comforts of modern living such as the oil fired central heating, solar powered hot water and electricity as well as mains electricity. Through the front door takes you into an entrance hall with double doors off to the left leading to the dining room. To the right stairs with traditional wrought iron and wood railings lead to the first floor. Ahead a single access door leads to a spacious traditional style wooden fully fitted kitchen with granite worktops and a breakfast bar. Off here a wide archway leads to a cosy lounge with a traditional log burning fireplace. This in turn leads through to the dining room which has double doors leading out to the courtyard and further double doors leading to an additional second lounge and sun room. This has three sets of double doors leading out to the courtyard and garden and its own pellet burning fire.
An impressive staircase with wrought iron railings with traditional wood inserts leads to the first floor with an upstairs hallway leading to four bedrooms and a family shower room. There is a lovely corner bedroom with double aspect windows and built in wardrobe space, two additional spacious guest bedrooms, all with high beamed ceilings and views of the garden. The master suite encompasses an office area, a very large en suite shower room with built in storage, a large bedroom with fitted wardrobes and double door access to a covered terrace overlooking the pool and gardens and mountain backdrop. There is a retractable awning to provide additional shade to the terrace and this is a fabulous additional private outdoor space. The en suite and covered terrace can also be accessed from the hallway.
To recap this is a whopping 310m town centre detached property with private garden, heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, garage, separate annexe, oil fired central heating, original fireplace, pellet burner, sun room lounge, water softener and drinking water system, solar hot water and electricity.
A viewing of this stunning and very individual property is highly recommended.
