This is a rare and special opportunity to acquire a spectacular country property near Pizarra with the most amazing views. This beautiful old cortijo maintains a lot of original features including the log fired bread ovens and animal feeding troughs. The main part of the house needs total renovation but has the potential to be a grand country house or a rural bed and breakfast. The guest apartment has been completely renovated and has a bedroom, kitchen, living room and bathroom. There is also a renovated garage with another bathroom.
Outside there is a 124m² coral which would make a stunning enclosed courtyard. The house sits on an enormous plot of nearly 300,000m² (30Ha). A great deal of the land is flat and suitable for farming or keeping horses. There is an existing olive grove with over 450 mature trees, but it would be possible to plant many more. The views over the Andalucian countryside must be seen to be believed!
Pizarra is a tiny town lying 30 kilometres upriver from Malaga in the Guadalhorce valley at the foot of the Sierra del Haco; the town is within easy reach of the capital Malaga city and its international airport in Malaga. From Malaga Airport, there are only 30 km from the center of Pizarra.
An inland farming community, Pizarra is situated on the local railway line between Alora and Malaga and has managed to retain much of its old character charm, avoiding excessive development.
The town has all the facilities expected of a small Andalusian inland town and boasts a good nightlife.
Pizarra is situated in the Guadalhorce Valle, in rich irrigated lowlands abundant with citrus and other fruit trees, Pizarra boasts a beautiful natural environment, perfect for lovers of the great outdoors.
Although on the surface Pizarra appears to be a laidback Andalusian village, scratch the surface and you will find a surprising number of cafes, bars and restaurants, more than you will find in your typical whitewashed pueblo.
There is of course typical Malagueñan cuisine on offer, tapas, seafood, etc, but you will also find restaurants serving British, French and Italian restaurants and even more astonishing are the options for a night filled with music and dance, with several nightclubs and disco bars in the town. Here you will have a good opportunity to mix with the locals and have a fun night out, Andalusian-style.
This is truly a city and an area worth a look at.
