FOR SALE - A stone cottage on 4520 square metres of land
This land is situated in a micro climate valley and is planted with mainly olive trees but also orange, plum, pear, grape and fig trees. With plenty of space for more planting and a vegetable garden. A small woodland exists along the river. Gravity irrigation water supplied by an irrigation channel above the farm or water can be pumped from the river.
The cottage called Caz del Conde, comprises of 2 large rooms, a kitchen with storage area and a large lounge/bedroom. The main entrance through a new traditional barn door and a back door to a secluded terrace. A roof terrace under a huge fig tree and a dip pool add to the charm.
The kitchen is fitted with sink and a new gas cooker, with terracotta tiles throughout. The lounge/bedroom has a marble floor with plumbing for a shower unit, a wood burning stove and 4 sets of windows with wooden shutters.
The newly rebuilt stone wall is very thick with insulation in the ceiling. The back wall has been rebuilt creating a cavity between the original stone wall to allow for insulation.
