The first property has been tastefully restored to maintain the traditional features (wood, tiles and stone).The street entrance leads towards a spacious kitchen (range cooker included) and contains two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Stairs lead to a middle floor living space with beautiful wooden floors with feature staircase which leads to the master bedroom suite and a sublime terrace with BBQ overlooking the village and out to the hills on the upper levels. The rear terraced garden has ample space to incorporate a swimming pool.
The second property is an adjoining traditional terraced house that needs some renovation: a) full kitchen where a centre isle can easily be accommodated; b) wood floor for the upper level; c) some damp-proofing and maybe a bathroom refit. Three bedrooms, ample living space and terraced garden.
The third property is a plot located at the highest point of the populated town.

The original (lapsed) plans provided for a basement (den / work area / huge garage) plus two floors each comprising 2 beds / bath / living kitchen area or a family home, both with roof terrace. Similarly lapsed planning permission was obtained for the two constructed properties which include a pool and additional floors for living quarters and roof terrace.

Comments on the location:
Cortes de la Frontera is an historical & traditional Andalucian white village (pueblo blanco) perched on a ridge between the Alcornocales natural park and Sierra de Grazalema natural park in western Malaga province. The villagers fought off the moors in the 15th Century and Napoleon in the 18th Century to maintain their heritage much to the acclaim of the authorities. This is without doubt one of the most beautiful areas of Andalucia. Cortes is perfect for those looking for a relaxing, rural break with guaranteed good weather in the summer. In the cooler months it often attracts walkers, bikers, and bird watchers who come to this part of Andalucia for its unique wildlife.
