This totally unique, spacious estate is located in the beautiful village of Benahavis. Literally a few minutes' walk into this charming white village, this cortijo-style property is a tranquil haven away from the bustle of the pueblo.

With 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the Master bedroom has a bathroom en-suite, and the rooms from the upper floor all look out onto the beautiful surrounding countryside. On a further floor, there is a sizeable room which could be another bedroom, studio or leisure room.
The cortijo is surrounded by magnificent gardens populated with mature trees, a shaded patio and large pool with an area of sunshade. The other building was formerly a sculpture studio with squash court of almost 400 sq. meters and was designed for easy conversion into a 4/5 bedroom house.
