Our goal is to help you find your dream home from all the properties that are for sale in the Axarquia area of Andalusia, in which we specialize. We have no shop window or many houses for sale in our portfolio because we believe in personal attention and tailor-made offers; therefore we normally work on a specific request basis. The houses you see here are 'special' in one way or another: full of character, built or renovated to a high standard, having great views or are set in nice locations. On top of that, they have passed a first legal check. Take a look and let us know how we can help you further.

Overview

RESERVED: This beautiful cortijo combines the Andalusian atmosphere with modern décor in a special way. The house is turnkey, has 2 living rooms, a spacious modern kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, garage, swimming pool and several terraces for any time of day, set in a beautifully landscaped garden. The house is a stone's throw from Riogordo and can be reached via a good road, widened and improved in spring 2023.

Cortijo Bucefalo is characterised by its mix of Andalusian old and modern new. The front part is the old cortijo and has a rural look on the outside with very old rejas/ironwork, roof tiles and wooden details that gives the house extra character. In 1993, a new part was added to the house in 'Ibiza' style, with lots of light and natural materials. A spacious hallway/entrance connects the two parts. In 2012, the current owner completely renovated the house in collaboration with a well-known Belgian architect. This created a whole new interior that makes the house one with the garden, swimming pool and natural surroundings. The cortijo has two entrances which would make it ideal to run as a bed and breakfast or to rent out as an airbnb to generate income as there are two separate living areas within the property as well as private terraces for each house. The entire plot (4,680m2) is fenced.

Riogordo is easily reached by car, bike and on foot. Málaga airport can be reached within 45 minutes and the beach at the seaside resort of Torre del Mar is also around 45 minutes by car. Thanks to its central location in the Axarquía on a flat plateau, the area around Riogordo is perfect for beautiful walks or tours by mountain bike. In the village you will find all the amenities you need for everyday life. There are also several good restaurants and cosy tapas bars. Originally, Riogordo was an old farming village focused on agriculture, so you can still feel the authentic Spanish relaxed atmosphere. The village is also known for its open-air theatre where various performances take place every year.

DESCRIPTION inside

You enter from the terrace at the front of the cortijo and immediately feel the special atmosphere of the house. This section houses a living room, bedroom, bathroom and the kitchen (total 45 m2). The modern kitchen is equipped with new appliances (dishwasher, oven, microwave); a  special feature is the "floating" Miele hood. The kitchen has a direct connection to the living room and dining area. Next to the living room is the first bedroom (9.65 m2) with the possibility of creating a 3rd bathroom en-suite. Opposite the bedroom is the family bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin.

In the spacious hall (10,65m2) between the old and new part is a storage room with connection for washing machine and dryer.
Through a large passageway (11.85m2) with a  spacious bathroom on the right hand  side, large wardrobe and separate toilet, you enter via a glass door  into the second living area which is currently used as a home office and living room. Through the large glass front, you have great views over the garden and meadow surroundings. Adjacent to the living room are two bedrooms (7,70m2 and 10,50m2).

There is air conditioning in both living areas (also for heating) and both living rooms also have a stove (a wood burner and a pellet stove). The property has a mains water supply from the municipality, hot water is generated via new solar panels with a solar boiler and is connected to the electricity grid. The windows are double-glazed. There is also a Wi-Fi network in the house. The property has a DAFO.

DESCRIPTION outside

There are numerous terraces around the house, and there are several spots from where you have impressive views over the meadow area; with clear weather you can even see the sea.

In the morning you can enjoy breakfast on the terrace in front of the house, either in the morning sun or under the electrically operated sunshade. In the afternoon and evening, the terrace at the side of the house under the old olive tree is a great place to relax and unwind and take in beautiful views of the surroundings.
