It may be in need of reform, but this GLORIOUS MANOR HOUSE, basking in the HOT GLOW OF THE MAGNIFICENT ANDALUSIAN SUN and nestled within the LUSH GREENERY OF THE GUADALHORCE VALLEY, is going to be worth the investment! With a FULLY-FENCED, FARMABLE 16,000M2 irrigated plot chock full of 600+ ORGANIC, PREMIUM QUALITY FRUIT TREES (mainly ORANGE & LEMON, plus POMEGRANATE, GRAPES), a small garden of TOMATOS, ONIONS, PEPPERS, STRAWBERRIES, BANANAS, etc. Oh, and there’s a LARGE SWIMMING POOL to take advantage of, too!
Alongside the spectacular investment opportunity is the inherent appeal of the incredible panoramic mountain views, the natural park location imbued with history and charm, and the absolute potential inherent in this rural treasure - rustic farm getaway or unique boutique hotel? The choice is yours!
The French-style property, built in 1864 and spanning a grand 900m2 (one of largest local manor houses), is half renovated and needs completion. It’s currently spread over 4 floors including a cellar and loft and features a fully fitted and equipped kitchen (maintaining the original charcoal oven and floors), several receptions rooms, living rooms and dining rooms, a bathroom, up to 14 potential bedrooms, and bags upon bags of potential. Designed to initially house one of the French engineers of the "Railway Company of Cordoba to Malaga" who lived in the area when the railway was installed in the 19th century, the property retains its original structure, with five marble fireplaces, amazing room sizes with balconies and exceptional views of the Guadalhorce Valley and its orange seas. Preserves, doors, decoration of the walls, staircase and original moldings are all preserved.
As anecdotal and curious, it is said that in the house was mentioned the well-known Anita Delgado (Princess of Kapurthala) and her secretary and lover, Ginés Rodriguez at the beginning of the 20th century. Attached to the house, the building originally dedicated to service housing is preserved, today converted into a modern house in full use, completely remodelled two years ago and which has covered garage, several rooms, kitchen, bathroom, and patio with barbecue.
Situated just outside of the wonderful Campo of of El Chorro, you\\\\''''\\\\''''ll find the wonderfully fertile land Spaniards have cherished for generations, offering all you could ever need to hand, from bars & restaurants to banks and pharmacies! Everything else can be found just 55 minutes away in the bustling city of Malaga (including its international airport).
The area has an abundance of tourist resources; the Chorro reservoir, and the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, where mountaineering and paragliding are practiced, with Caminito del Rey inaugurated by Alfonso XII at the beginning of the 20th century. Very close to the farm is Álora, the town where the illustrious Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was held for 2 years, and the ruins of Bobastro, bastion of resistance against the Caliphate of Cordoba in the ninth century.
