Restored Country Cortijo Ronda
The property just fifteen minutes from Ronda is both traditional and authentic, and is offered in perfect condition throughout. It has character and charm in abundance, as you can see from the pictures. Subject to an extensive restoration in latter years, the accommodation is comfortable and generously proportioned, with period features adding to its undoubtedly stylish ambience. All mod-cons have been incorporated (new electricty supply, internet, new plumbing, etc, etc), but not at the expense of the property's historical integrity.
At the end of the tree-lined avenue, the main buildings open out into a stunning cobbled central walled courtyard - a feature every home should have! The main house boasts a traditional Entrance Hall, a large Drawing Room with an adjacent Study, a separate Dining Room, a fully integrated Kitchen / Breakfast Room, Cloakroom, Family Bathroom, a Master Suite with Bedroom and Shower Room, and 3 additional Bedrooms. The separate guest cottage offers spacious and delightful accommodation (this is possibly the oldest part of the property) with it's own Entrance Hall, a large Sitting Room and Dining Area, a gorgeous Double Bedroom, and a Bathroom featuring an antique roll-top bath with clawed feet. There is a covered cloister leading out into the central patio.
Externally, as well as the central courtyard, there are natural stone terraces at the side and rear of the property, with period covered pergolas providing the perfect setting for al-fresco dining and entertaining. There is a recently constructed and fully tiled swimming pool (c.9x5m) with a stone surround, and gravelled terraces making the most of the stunning views beyond located in Ronda la vieja. There is an 'orchard' area with both ancient and young olive trees in stone 'planters' which leads on to the Stables and the Utility Cottage. The STABLES offer enough space for 2 loose boxes and a tack room ... this building has been entirely renovated, and has been left open-plan for the time being, allowing greater flexibility in its final use (it would make a great self-contained cottage, or an office or gym, etc). The UTILITY ROOM is housed within a several-hundred-year-old outbuilding, which has again been entirely restored in recent times. The rolling fields beyond are excellent for anyone with equestrian ambitions, and it may also be of interest to note that a purchaser may be able to acquire an additional 3 hectares (30,000m2) of adjoining land, at a reasonable cost, if required.
