For sale direct from the owners!
A unique property dating back to 1940 that has a very unique and special location – in the centre of the Parque Natural de las Sierras Subbeticas in the Cordoba Province. This is a hamlet home – one of 4 properties together, although this cottage is detached from its neighbours and has its own private outside terraces.
This home is most suited to those buyers who want to integrate into Spanish country life and build a relationship with the locals. The situation of the house is very rural and surrounded by olive orchards as far as the eye can see. Of course, there are beautiful mountain ranges to marvel at, wherever you look and no development/construction can take place within this specially protected natural park. Therefore, the view from the property is guaranteed to remain the same except for perhaps the building of a stable or barn for agricultural use.
The other option is to rent the property out to those holiday makers who want to experience ‘real rural Spain’ in a fabulous setting. The property is renovated and is being sold furnished, with linen, crockery and more. It is a ready to go property!
If you want to walk to bars, restaurants and supermarkets, this property is not for you, however, if you want to walk the trails of the natural park and absorb the nature around you, then this could be your dream home in the Andalucian country sun!
