For sale directly from the owners! This charming 3 bedroom village home is located within a quiet position in the heart of this beautiful “pueblo blanco” – one of the most attractive villages in the whole of the Axarquia region of Malaga. The house has been reformed to a high standard (during 2011 and 2012) to ensure a comfortable life but the house also retains many of the original features of a traditional village home – the charm of the old with the benefits of a contemporary renovation. The property benefits from three separate outside spaces – a traditional “patio Andaluz” on the ground floor, an open roof terrace with amazing views and a wonderful covered terrace which is an ideal space for relaxing, dining and entertaining. With so much outside space, the house is well suited to being a permanent home – the current owners live in the property all year round and they enjoy all of the amenities that are available within a short stroll. They also enjoy all of the festivities that a village such as this celebrates throughout the year. Equally, the house would make an ideal holiday home – easy to “lock and leave” as the property has no work to do, just turn up, pop the key in the door and relax in comfort. The house is set across three levels – the main level is accessed off the street and opens into a large kitchen and dining room. There is an archway through to a utility room and the kitchen also leads through to a private Andalusian patio. On this level, there is also a large living room with a wood burning stove. Off the living room is a guest bedroom. From the utility room, a short flight of 5 stairs leads to a small landing, the second bathroom and a further flight of stairs leads to bedroom 3. Stairs lead down to a lower level which is home to the master bedroom and master bathroom. The top floor is reached from stairs within the living room and leads to a study/office and opens into the summer terrace (covered and ideal for relaxing and dining) and the open roof terrace which has some terrific views across the village.

The house is also within easy reach of the world famous sights of Andalusia, such as Seville, Granada and Cordoba via an excellent network of motorways and high speed railway routes. Sedella is a traditional white village of 600 inhabitants on the edge of a Parque Natural. It was founded by the Romans and developed by the Moors. There are a number of bars that serve tapas, two restaurants, two local shops and a small Monday market. The Axarquia is a relatively undeveloped region of the Costa del Sol. It mixes tourism, with agriculture and extensive wild areas. Expect to see spectacular sub-tropical flowers and lots a wildlife, and because the climate is so mild, fruit trees such as Avocado and Mango grow in the area. The Axarquia is a very Spanish region East of Malaga and less developed than the area to the West of the city. You can walk in the mountains in the morning and swim in the Mediterranean in the afternoon. It has all the usual supermarkets, shopping, medical and transport facilities that you would expect and are easily reached from Sedella.
