Introducing a beautifully renovated detached cortijo tucked away in the picturesque Saliente Alto area of Albox, this unique property offers a charming blend of traditional Andalusian architecture and modern comfort.

Accessed via a tarmac and concrete road, with a brief stretch of approximately 200m of rambla (dry river bed), arriving at the property unveils a gravelled drive leading to a parking area for 2-3 vehicles. Lined with low-maintenance raised flower beds, the entrance beckons with its few steps up onto the front terrace, a serene spot to admire the stunning mountain views and bask in the evening sun. The pathway leads round the back of the house to reveal additional garden space, decked terrace, and a quaint cave room used for storage. From the decked terrace a pathway leads up to the remainder of the garden and pool area. Here, you'll find a 55,000-litre aljibe (water tank which is fed by a natural well), an above-ground 4m diameter pool, BBQ area, storage shed / workshop, vegetable garden, and terracing areas with panoramic mountain views.

Step through the traditional wooden stable door into the spacious entrance hall, where the open-plan staircase leads up to the master suite. To the right, a WC with washbasin sits adjacent to the second bedroom, complete with a Solarventi panel which pushes warm dry air into the room. The bedroom boasts a small built-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room with a large walk in shower.

On the left side of the entrance hall lies the large yet cosy lounge diner with a wood burner, adorned with original features including exposed stone walls and traditional shelving. A doorway leads to the third bedroom, currently used as a dining room, with exposed rock walls adding to its character. The adjacent traditional Andalucian kitchen features high ceilings, exposed beams, and original details, along with modern amenities such as a reverse osmosis drinking water tap.

Ascending to the first floor, the master bedroom awaits, illuminated by natural light as well as down lighting, and featuring a freestanding woodburning stove. A stable door opens onto the rear decking area, overlooking the garden and beyond. The master bedroom benefits from a modern and bright en-suite with a walk in shower, down lighting and a modern vanity unit.

Surrounded by fruit trees, including almond, olive, fig, and pomegranate, the fenced plot offers both tranquility and opportunity for outdoor enjoyment.

Situated within a 6 minute drive (3.6kms) from the Saliente monastery (Santuario del Saliente) where you will find a popular bar-restaurant and enjoy the amazing vistas. You will find a second bar-restaurant in the opposite direction within a 6 minute drive (3.4kms), small shop within an 8 minute drive (4.5kms) and just a 9 minute drive (5.3kms) from the village of Las Pocicas where you will find a bar, bakery, doctors' office, municipal pool and a school.
