Finca for sale in Pizarra
- Built166 m2
- Plot19327 m2
Perched on the top of a mountain in Pizarra with panoramic views, this spacious home is in need of some refurbishment but offers tons of potential!
The main house currently has 4 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms (one with a log burner and an air-conditioning unit). It is just one house but could easily be converted into 2 independent homes, each with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. There is a lovely covered terrace with a barbecue area at the front of this property idea to relax and take in the stunning scenery!
Outside is a private pool that separates the main house from a completely independent one bedroom apartment with a bathroom, kitchenette and living room. The pool area also has an external bathroom.
There is a wooden shed at the back of the property ideal for storage.
Although the plot is large, the maintenance is very low as the land is quite steep. The property benefits from solar panels, town water & well water.
This country house is about 15 minutes from the main road and is accessed by a track. It is ideal for holiday rentals as there are two dwellings that could be rented out or occupied by one large family.
- Area Info: Cártama Guide
History dominates Cártama – even today. Its geographic location helps, some 17 kilometres north of Málaga at the head of the Guadalhorce River, a navigable spot on a ridge, affording excellent views either side of the valley. In short: the perfect place to defend against attack.
And defend it did. From Phoenicians to Romans, to Moors and Visigoths, Cártama has played its part in shaping Andalucía's history, producing marble and other raw materials for incumbent armies and merchants. Every street and building, it seems, has a story to tell.
If it is a rare week when there is no festival or celebratory gathering of some sort, the attractive streets and plazas of Cártama are a joy to wander around and become lost in. The La Ermita de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios hermitage is located on a hill and, apart from the stunning views across the valley, it is something of a head-turner itself.
Other attractions of note include the Humilladero Cross – a second century Roman remnant – and the 10th century castle. Beyond the town's boundaries lie vast expanses of forests and olive groves, the Guadalhorce River and Málaga city, just a short drive away. The nightlife in Cártama is more varied than many other inland settlements, purely because of the town's size (around 15,000).
There are typical discotheques and late-night music bars – if that is your preference or you have teenage or twentysomething offspring – while a slower pace can be enjoyed in the pueblo, where the fragrant mountain air mixes with the delicate aromas of local produce served up in restaurants – creating a captivating atmosphere.
