This Cortijo Andaluz is located within walking distance to the village of Coin and only a 25 minute car drive from Malaga airport, Marbella and Fuengirola. The Cortijo is set on a large flat plot of about 18.000m2, surrounded by mature walnut trees and a variety of fruit trees. The property is accessed by crossing a small bridge. There is a stream below that runs all year round, including during the dry summer months.
The house offers a lot of potential and endless possibilities. It preserves the authentic features of an old traditional property which was built more than 100 years ago.
It is distributed over two floors as follows:
Ground floor: large entrance hall with a staircase leading to the first floor. To the right is a cosy living room (which could be converted into a bedroom). There is also a kitchen and a bathroom with shower.
On the other side of the hall is a large lounge/dining room with an open fireplace.
First floor: 5 bedrooms, all with large windows offering lots of light. One of the bedrooms has a private lounge with a fireplace. There is also a fully refurbished bathroom on this floor.
Towards the back of the house is a storeroom which was previously used for animals, although it is in a slightly poorer condition and requires some refurbishment.
The swimming pool and garden area are located behind the house on the south side of the property. Here you will find another separate room which would be ideal for a summer kitchen.
The finca offers total privacy and is completely fenced. It has mains water and electricity.
The vibrant town of Coin is a beauty with plenty of history and sights. As you arrive, you will drive through fields of orchards, oranges, lemons, olives, almonds and forests such as Alpujata, La Fuente, El Charco del Infierno and La Albuquera. You will feel a world away from civilisation and indeed Coín is referred to as the town of three hundred orchards.
Coín has a rich history having been occupied by the Romans, when the town was known as Lacibis, then later as La Cobin, in the 1st century B.C.
There are many lovely squares, known as Plazas, where you can relax with a coffee, listen to the fountains and watch the world go by. Try Plaza de la Via or Plaza Alameda.
When occupied by the Moors, Coín was known as Dacuan and was an important town in the region. Although Coín’s economy has largely relied on agriculture, it also has been a producer of marble and ceramics, perhaps you have heard the term ‘green Coín’?
Coin is located 36km south-west of Málaga, at an altitude of 210 metres above sea level overlooking the stunning Guadalhorce Valle. The climate has mild winters and hot summers and more than a third of the days of the year are sunny. Its municipality has an area of 128.4 km2 and welcomes its almost 22,000 inhabitants, who receive the name of coineños or coínos
