Property Description

As Churchill once said “I bought a view and the house came with it” check outthe website under property for sale for loads of pics

Encima del Mundo is a large cortijo that over the last 7 years has been refurbished and formed into living accommodation and rental units. No marble floors and double glazed windows here, we have stripped repaired and utilised original doors and windows where possible and have kept all the charm of a traditional Spanish farmhouse.
The property sits on the mountain above Fuente Del Conde, Iznajar and it has the most magnificent views that stretch to Iznajar and the lake.. Iznajar is central Andalucia perfect for cordoba,Granada. Malaga and a little further Seville.

The house (cortijo) and land is totally private, not over looked, and has 15,000 m2 surrounding the 429 m2 build, inc central courtyard, most of the land is mountain land that looks after itself, but directly surrounding the pool terracing etc area it has olive groves of about 80 trees.

The cortijo is entered via antique double doors into a double split level central courtyard the building around the courtyard has been split into 4, there are two self catering apartments, (we call them cottages as they are on two floors for extra character)r, that have given an income over the last 7 years with many return customers. Each cottage has two bedrooms with en-suite showers rooms, lounge with wood burner, kitchen, private terrace and BBQ. Each has its own private entrance (not via the courtyard), although, one has a locked door into the courtyard that can be used should you have family staying that you would like to have direct access. The cottages will be sold furnished equipped and ready for rental inc bookings, website and current advertising.

The living accommodation consists of an open plan modern but rustic Andalucian bespoke kitchen split level to the dining room, kitchen will include fridge freezer and range style cooker. From the dining room a further room, we use as an office, with a wood burner and door out to the terrace and pool, down a split level stair case there is a living room with open fire, double doors onto a terrace overlooking the pool and the fabulous view. Up the stairs is a very large bedroom with en-suite and an internal terrace, the view is spectacular its always shaded and is a great place for an afternoon siesta, it has built in seating, we have a wall mounted tv up there where we spend most summer evenings.
Back off the courtyard there is a further bedroom with dressing room and en-suite for guests or further family.

The fourth wing of the building is yet to be completed, this can be done for you on receipt of your ten percent but was planned as a further 1 bed cottage that could be linked with the guest room if two rooms were needed and it was not in use. However, because this may not be a requirement form a purchaser we thought we would leave it to choice. We can discuss completing the wing on payment of 10%.

Outside we have a shed (small room on the corner of the house) a garage / workshop a huge gravelled front area with willow ash and fruit trees. The ash offers natural shade and always offers a soft breeze away from the mid day sun. The pool 12x 6 meters is surrounded by lawn, and there is a small pool house for storage, separate from the pump housing. Round by the cottages there is a further shared seating area fab, place to watch the sun go down.
Various terraces around the house provide all day sunshine.
