Situated on the edge of the typically 'Spanish' whitewashed pueblo of La Huelga, under the townhall municipality of Sorbas, is this large 3/4 bedroom villa with a self contained separate 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment, a private swimming pool and beautiful rural country and mountain views.
From the access lane to the villa, there is a driveway and parking area for 3 or more vehicles and a single car garage. Steps lead from the parking area up to the attractive pool area with the 8m x 4m swimming pool surrounded by terraces for relaxing and enjoying the peaceful location. Also on this level is the self contained 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with large lounge dining area, kitchen, double doors out to two private terraces and each bedroom enjoying an ensuite shower room. This apartment has been successfully rented in the past for guests looking for the taste of real Spain and a rural retreat. The area is very popular in the winter months with walkers, hiking and mountain biking.
From the pool level there are steps up to the main villa which has 4 bedrooms and all on one level (one currently used as a dressing room) two bathrooms including an ensuite for the master bedroom, a large lounge with log burner and two sets of patio doors out to terraces, a separate dining room off the modern fully fitted kitchen. There is also a glazed sunroom off the lounge, the perfect place to enjoy the warm winter sun months, to relax and read with views over the surrounding countryside, where local landowners tend to their almond and olive trees and the local goat herder walks his flock up the nearby riverbed. Off the master bedroom there are double doors out to a private terrace that overlooks the swimming pool and enjoys more country views. All bedrooms benefit from air conditioning as does the lounge.
The villa is light and bright and has been built and designed to allow maximum sunlight to all rooms and enjoys all day sun. In the summer months there are persianas (window security shutters) that drop down to block out the sun during the heat of the day keeping the villa cool. There is also a back door from the kitchen dining area to the street behind the house for easy access directly into the village without having to use the stairs at the front of the villa.
This property offers fantastic accommodation and will suit many different types of buyers, from full time or part time living with the private apartment used for family and friends when they visit, to buyers looking to generate an income from the property and to set up a Bed & Breakfast or an Airbnb holiday rental, potentially renting the apartment in the winter months to the 'winter sun' enthusiasts (where the average daytime temperature is 18 degrees), and / or renting the villa out in the high income peak summer weeks. These days the health travel industry is getting more and more popular where groups for example book a fully catered for health and yoga retreat in areas cut off from the day to city noise and pollution, and this property really does lend itself to this type of business. The rental license is issued by the Junta de Andalucia which is an easy process arranged by most lawyers after taking ownership.
Located on the edge of this sleepy village, this property offers peace & quiet, rural solitude, beautiful views that change throughout the day and without doubt the taste and feel of a hamlet is real rural Andalucia. The larger town of Los Gallardos is a 10 minute drive where there are shops, bars and a supermarket, the beaches of Mojacar are under 30 minutes drive, and Almeria airport which has regular UK flights with Easyjet and Ryanair is only 45 minutes drive.
