A French Chateau in Spain!
Reduced from an original price of 2.850.000 Euros to just 1.000.000 Euros (April 2012).
A most unusual, imposing house to be found on Cortijo de San Rafael offering complete privacy and seclusion as it is situated on a plot of 11.000m2 with magnificent views to the valley and Nerja in the distance. The property has a very French flavour about it together with ivy growing up the entire facade.
The property is approached from a tarmaced road leading direct to the cul-de-sac entrance and driveway, opening to a large terrace with pond in front of the main house. However, it is also possible to make a direct access driveway from the Nerja – Frigiliana road.
The main house measures 200m2 on one floor, comprising a majestic entrance hall/lounge with high ceilings and ornate coving, parquet floors and fire place, 4 very large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a period style kitchen with double doors to the rear garden. There is a loft area of 110m2 that could be converted to a separate guest area/apartment. The basement garage measures 125m2 and houses the central heating unit and water tanks.
In addition to the main house there is also a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom guest cottage on the land.
Some of the land area has been lanscaped with paths, garden areas and terraces surrounding the private swimming pool. There is huge scope to further enhance the remaining areas which are currently in a natural state including many shaded areas. A charming feature is the covered domed terrace set in amongst the trees. There is also ample space available for a tennis court or other similar game areas.
Due to the overall plot size, both the main house and the guest cottage could be enlarged, as indeed a complete new house could also be constructed within the bounds of local planning regulations.
Price reduced from 2.800.000 Euros to 2.500.000 Euros (November 2010).
Reduced further from 2.500.000 Euros to 2.200.000 Euros (May 2011). Reduced again to an attractive price of 1.799.000 Euros (October 2011).
This property has now been reduced to 1.500.000 Euros (January 2012).
The price of this property is now just 1.000.000 Euros, as of April 2012. Given its price history, this property is now very well priced and should be seriously considered if looking for a property with its characteristics.
