For sale - " The cottage in the woods " Cortes de la frontera . Serrania de Ronda

Off-grid home hidden away on the edge of a cork tree plantation , this is a rare find and a great opportunity to live a comfortable, life in the glorious Andalucian countryside .

The perfect place to beat the energy crisis and never be a slave to your bills again!

A genuinely secluded Finca , the last Finca on a small well maintained ( mostly concreted track ) of approx 1klm . Yet only a 5 minute drive into the town of Cortes de la Frontera - so this is not an isolated Finca miles from anywhere !

Deceptively spacious house, which has a large farmhouse style kitchen with a good size breakfast table in the centre of the kitchen . There are panoramic country views from the windows . An open plan living room is divded from the kitchen by an interesting open plan wall made of several pillars, it houses a wood burning stove, which warms both the living room and the kitchen.

From the living room a small hallway leads to two large double bedrooms - the bedrooms have double glazed windows , a good size family bathroom and separate laundry/store room with washing machine and freezer.

The sophisticated 3KW photo-voltaic solar sytem ensures that the house functions as well as any on grid house - the sytem runs a smart TV , frdige, freezer, washing machine and power show, hairdryers and or course all the lights.

There is a gas water heater and the oven and hob are also gas. The woodburner is kept fully stocked with wood from the Finca's land

Outside the house house there is a charming patio and a wood deck overlooking the land

Syndicated piped water and a 78m deep borehole.(Well ) currently not in use, but can be connected )

Tool/Utility metal shed.

Ample space for swimming pool.

90% olive trees (yielding highly sought-after mountain olive oil), also figs, almonds, quinces, pears, plums, grape vines, cork oak, eucalyptus, wild flowers and grasses with two orchid varieties identified.

Pasture (ideal for sheep or goats ) NB the land is quite hilly in parts, but there are various flat areas around the house and at the bottom of the land which borders the stream that flows year around . Perfect for permacultura and market gardening .

The land is classifed as Rustic - not protected land or national park, therefore, under the New ( 2022 ) Andalucia Land Laws referring to construction on rural land, it is now permitted ( with planning application ) to build on up to 1% of the total land area of the property . The house constructed size is 90m2 . So there is plenty of scope for extending - building a second floor and putting in a swimming pool .

30 minute drive to Ronda. 1 hr 10 mins to Gibraltar airport, 1hr 30 mins Malaga, Sevilla or Jerez airports.

1hr (total) train then taxi to Gibraltar.

10 mins drive to train station
