Or a 20 mins drive to the busy market town of Baza. Major airports such as Malaga, Alicante, beaches, and ski resorts all between 1.5 to 2.5hrs drive away, so ideal for the remote worker to get back to the office or visit clients.
The house itself has 3 bedrooms a family bathroom and landing upstairs. A living room, utility, cloakroom and kitchen/diner downstairs.

The land is divided between terraces with olive trees, and untouched sierras.
The terraces can be easily irrigated using the spring water and cultivated. The area is known for growing many types of fruit and vegetables, lots of vines for a variety of wines, and trees such as almonds, cherry, olives and more recently pistachios have been introduced.
The mountain is currently used for keeping bees, grazing sheep and the current owner’s horses. This area is abundant with local wildlife such as large birds of prey, mountain deer, goats and boar, but large parts could be cultivated with the correct licences, and herbs such as lavender, rosemary and thyme can be grown without problems and interference by the wildlife, and they require very little maintenance.
In addition to the house there is a stable block with 6 stables ranging from pony to horse size boxes, a secure solar shed/tack room, feed room, workshop and several outbuildings that can be used as additional stabling or for the storage of hay/straw.
The property has a licence for 5 equines, but this can be increased to over 20 due to the amount of acreage the property has.
The terraces around the stables area are fenced paddocks, the rest is open, so that the horses can roam freely.
There are miles of off-road hacking around the area, or when in Spain, do as the Spanish do, and hack down to the local village, park your horse next to the terrace and have a drink in the bar 😁
There are also 6 double kennels on site, to accommodate 12 large dogs and unlimited scenic routes for dog walking.
Also on the property is the ruin of the original farmhouse. This falls in a section of land that is within the natural park boundaries, and unfortunately under current laws cannot be renovated. However mounting pressure on the natural park of Baza may force a change in the law, and thus allow planning permission to be granted for a rebuild of park properties in the future.
