This gorgeous, typically Andalusian ‘Cortijo-style’ country house with substantial equestrian facilities is located just five minutes from the coast and ten minutes from the seaside town of Estepona on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
Built in 2003, with major renovations carried out in 2012, the total constructed area is 948m2 (including terraces) on a plot of 210.000m². This farmhouse is perfect for the development of equestrian activities thanks to the existing facilities that are on the farm, a riding school, paddocks and several stables. It should also be noted that it is an ideal property to be exploited as a rural hotel, in addition to providing everything necessary to host events of all kinds such as weddings and other outdoor ceremonies for approximately 100 attendees.
The house is very large, with terracotta floor tiles throughout and an average of four-metre high wooden-beamed ceilings. To ensure it keeps warm during the cooler winter months, double-glazing is installed throughout along with a unique ecologically-friendly central heating system that harnesses natural energy to not only heat the house, but also to provide hot water throughout.

The ground floor of the main house consists of the reception hallway, which leads through stained glassed double doors to a spacious living room area. A separate dining room can be reached from this living room via a stylish archway. Both the living and dining room offer direct access via sliding patio doors to the main south-facing terrace.
In addition to the outdoor kitchen, the house is also blessed with a state-of-the-art internal kitchen, which comes with its own dining area and separate utility room.
Upstairs is where the property’s five bedrooms can be found – three of which are blessed with their own en suite bathrooms – along with a further study area.
And close to the main house, there is also a spacious apartment with 6 bedrooms, two large living rooms, modern kitchen and a large private garden on the west side of the main house.
Interestingly for potential buyers, this property is sold with an expansive plot of land upon which are situated three individual rural houses with two water wells and two x 150m2 exercise paddocks, each of which currently lies in ruins which could be both reformed.
