Los Castillejos

Full Description: Instant self-sufficient lifestyle for sale! REDUCED!

Beautiful completely renovated off-grid cortijo set in 1 hectare of lush abundant woodland in La Taha.

The house:

5 bedrooms, bathroom, large living/dining/kitchen area, pantry and secure external room. New Swiss built solar pv system and wind turbine for electrics, vacuum tube array for hot water. Heated with woodburners with potential to connect radiators and underfloor heating (pipes in place). Sweet chestnut beams, beautiful woodwork and tiled/stucco floors throughout. House is 140m, but registered as 180, so potential to extend considerably without seeking further permission.

The land:

1 hectare of mixed woodland split over 7 terraces, providing food, firewood and welcome shade in the summer. 30 odd walnut trees and various others: almonds, olives, cherries, apples, pears, plums, pomegranates, persimmon, loquat, quince, mulberries, peaches and more. Blackcurrants, red currants, white currants, blackberries, raspberries and rhubarb, not to mention the established veggie patches and seasonal wild food.... a true forest garden.

30m solid stable set in woodland, potential to convert to human accommodation instead. Chicken coop and rabbit enclosure.

Absolutely abundant FREE water with 24/7 rights to the acequia , the land stays green all year thanks to the amount of water we have access to and sprinklers in place on all terraces - we cannot use it all! Large alberca that can be used for swimming.

Drinking water is from a delicious private spring that runs around 15 - 20 litres/minute ALL YEAR, a few metres from the house but with also piped into the kitchen.

All this in a secluded car-free valley with views towards Ferreirola and several local footpaths (and the GR7) accessible from the front door.

Access is via Atalbeitar, 8 minutes along an easy footpath.
