A unique 5 or 6 bedroom Finca located both in the countryside and the town.
Here you can have the best of both worlds, with stunning views across the national park of Alcornocales, access to beautiful unspoilt and protected countryside, but still be within walking distance of the shops, bars, restaurants, and amenities of the busy town of Los Barrios.
Los Barrios is a thriving Spanish town, with supermarkets, schools, health centres, banks, lawyers, and even a big shopping and cinema complex near enough to be convenient but far enough away not to be seen or heard. In short, everything required for full time living, and with a beach at Los Palmones, only a few minutes’ drive away. Tarifa is only 35 minutes by car and Estepona and Marbella are easily accessible along the coastal highway to the east.
The Finca is of rustic style, set back from the road up a short private drive to the main gate, giving a sense of peace and tranquillity. The large plot wraps around the property, with natural garden areas dropping down the hillside at the rear, to the private pool and sunbathing area.
This property offers opportunity for further development, as there is space at the front of the plot with adequate area to construct another residence, of up to 200m2 on 2 levels, that would also have direct independent access from the main road.
The Finca is on 2 levels, with a spacious lounge, with open fireplace, and doors out to the terrace, with stunning views across the mountains. On this level, there is also a separate dining room, a traditional style kitchen, with adjoining laundry room and breakfast area, the large master bedroom, with en-suite and two further bedrooms that share a bathroom. The master bedroom has access to the rear terrace, and one of the other bedrooms has access to the garden at the front of the property. There is also a study, which could be utilised as another bedroom.
Also on this level, at the front of the property is an outside kitchen, with BBQ and covered dining area, a garage and car port, with further paved areas for parking as well asa grassed area planted with mature shrubs and trees.
There is an internal stairway down to the lower level of the property, which is a self-contained guest apartment, offering 2 further en-suite bedrooms, a spacious lounge, dining area, another traditional style kitchen, and access out to the lower terrace and garden. There is also a large storage room on this level
Finca La Rana – translated as Frog Farm – also has historical interest, as a previous owner was the famous botanist, Betty Molesworth, who has a park in the town centre named after her. The Finca retains many of the traditional features, and has benefitted from some modernisation by the present owners, but still has many possibilities for further development.
Located on a hill, on the edge of the town, it offers peace and quiet, but easy access to everything you need. For visitors, it is only 15 minutes from Gibraltar airport, 60 minutes from Jerez airport and 90 minutes from both Malaga and Seville, making it an ideal rental property for holidays, or a permanent tranquil family home with easy access to the outside world.
