A truly unique property in a unique location, two minute drive from the main road but protected from traffic noise and pollution by a rambla to the north and a camino rural to the south. The magnificent main entrance provides the backdrop to a large paved area, historically employed as a threshing circle and provides convenient parking for several cars. From inside the main entrance is a paved approach to the upper ground floor of the Cortijo with a plunge pool, converted from the original embalsa ( water reservoir) and an integrated pergola with facilities for “al fresco” dining with the heat of the summer sun cooled by the prevailing sea breeze ( the Levante). On a clear day the view to the east includes the Mediterranean, some 12 miles away as the crow flies. The upper floor of the Cortijo has been converted to a 2 bedroom apartment, with en suite bathroom and shower room, farmhouse kitchen and large sitting room. From outside the porch are sets of steps, to the left and right and leading down to two self contained 1 bedroom apartments on the lower ground floor. These apartments comprise of large double bedrooms, sitting rooms, kitchens and family bathrooms. Outside, each apartment has 2 terraces, one looking east to welcome the sun with a cup of coffee and one looking west to toast the last rays with a glass of wine. The Cortijo has central heating, Juliet balconies and shuttered windows, there are also log burning stoves and ceiling fans and there is a communal utility room and boiler house. At the opposite end of the lower ground floor garden is a detached 1 bedroom cottage converted from an agricultural outbuilding. The living room is open plan with log burning stove and a shower and separate WC leads on into the double bedroom with vanity basin, ceiling fan an electric heating. Outside has an open and covered terraces with views to the Mediterranean and the benefits of the Levante. On the bottom terrace of the finca is a 2 bedroom detached cottage which was converted from a barn and has covered porch to the front and walled patio to the rear. There is a very large open plan living area with shuttered windows, log burning stove and ceiling fans. The kitchen is from Ikea with gas hob and oven and freestanding fridge/freezer. There are two double bedrooms with shuttered windows, ceiling fans and electric heating. There is a spacious family bathroom. On the same terrace is a 1 bedroom detached cottage converted from a stables. The living area is open plan with Ikea kitchen, gas hob and oven, freestanding fridge, shuttered windows, ceiling fans and log burning stove. There is a double bedroom with shuttered window, ceiling fan and electric heating. Landscaping is made up of pea gravel lawns bordered by grape vines and oleander and there are an abundance of Almond, Olive and Pomegranate trees.

In addition we have an owners statement which will be very useful to some buyers:

"For the past 20 years my wife and I been blessed with living in Cortijo Fuente Arriba and the village of Lubrin. Now, just short of my 80th birthday we wish to “free” us up to spend more time in Wales and to complete our bucket list of travel.

Before buying in Spain we were fortunate to work overseas in a few exotic locations which family and friends were queuing up to visit. We learned that our family and friends were not just visiting us but were on holiday in their own right and so the layout of Cortijo Fuente Arriba developed along the lines of “having their own space but close by”. It was several years later that we discovered that we could have non paying and paying guests and started the process of offering holiday rentals to assist Lubrin replace its declining, traditional industries of agriculture and animal husbandry with rural tourism.

We were able to obtain membership of the world’s leading travel agent for responsible travel by showing that we supported the local economy and had very low impact on the environment. Cortijo Fuente Arriba is already one of the leading accommodation and self guided walking destinations in Andalucia, Spain.

Based on nearly 200 reviews there is potential as a Hospitality Venue to promote business and refresh staff. Furthermore there is a growing trend in international travel and leisure properties for rural residences.

In summarising we have not spent the last 12 years creating a commercial enterprise but have enjoyed a Cortijo Fuente Arriba “lifestyle”. We were fortunate not to be encumbered by a mortgage and are non resident in Spain, having a home in the country of our birth namely Wales.

Notwithstanding the above Cortijo Fuente Arriba has all the potential to create a rental income to justify its price tag."
