About this property
HISTORIC COUNTRY VILLA – MINI HOTEL / HOLIDAY RENTAL BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY.
The origins of this beautiful cortijo date back to the 19th century with the construction of a water mill on the Arroyo La Cala river. The 35 m2 mill was used to grind corn and now still forms the entrance, hall and office of the cortijo. The original millstone and a small water wheel are still present as well. Over the years many improvements have been made, for instance with the addition of a swimming pool and the recent installation of a modern kitchen, but the original details of the building have always been respected. From the antique marble bath tubs to the old Spanish doors and the antique furniture (most of which stays behind and is well over a hundred years old) – stepping into this extremely rare cortijo is like stepping back in time! It offers anything you may wish for if you want to buy a large family home or start a unique bed and breakfast. There are for instance 6 bedrooms with each their own bathrooms and terraces, most of which overlooking the courtyard and swimming pool. There’s a large office, a living room and a separate dining room (all with fireplaces), a spacious bar with a recreational area, guest toilet and access to the pool area, a large garden, a water well, a separate laundry area, 6,000 m2 of land with orange, lemon, fig, avocado, grapefruit, pear and mango trees and enough space to grow your own vegetables – too much to mention! And all though you’ll be living in a quiet and peaceful location surrounded by nature, the beach and town center of Estepona are just a little over a 5 minute drive away. The Twelve Quests children’s books have been written here and the cortijo plays a central role in them. Will you write the next chapter in the rich history of this unique home?
