Molino Cerradura was in a sorry state when we bought in 2000, now it is a beautiful home sitting in its own land in the countryside surrounded by natural beauty in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It is in very good condition and well maintained and is a very comfortable home all year round.

It is situated 1 km up a reasonable track out of the village of Yator 5 kms from the town of Cadiar and 5 kms from Ugijar . A car can manage the track ok . Both Cadiar and Ugijar have Drs and 24 hour medical care, banks and post offices, pharmacies, schools. , a range of shops that you can get most things required without having to travel further afield.

The property 275 m2 comprises of the main house and attached a single story one bedroom apartment . The one bedroom apartment could be used for guests or holiday rental . The house has 4 bedrooms one is ensuite plus family bathroom and downstairs a shower room . One bedroom is on the ground floor, we currently use it as an office . All bedrooms in the main house have fitted wardrobes and 2 have terraces plus one other terrace with beautiful views down the valley to the Sierra Contraviesa.

The house and casita has gas central heating , a large wood burning stove in the main house and a cute stove in the casita and the bedrooms have air conditioning.

Outside there is a patio area and pool , the pool measures 3.5 x 10 meters . Outside the apartment is a jacuzzi . There are storage buildings and ample parking.

On the land of a 1000 m2 there are olives trees , almond trees fig trees orange and lemon trees and vines , areas closet to the house and casita have been made into a garden with roses lavender jasmine geraniums and more.

We have mains electricity ,telephone , good internet connection , TV.

Airports Almeria and Malaga are 1hr 30 and 2 hr 30 driving time on a good run.

The area is of outstanding natural beauty , the wildlife plentiful and an abundance of wild flowers . Walking or mountain biking opportunities are incredible and suitable for all levels . I love to see the shepherd walking the countryside with sheep and goats all day stopping whilst they graze . There are still some people who on horseback , mule or donkey go to the fields to tend to their crops . It is a tranquil way of life here.

And for wine lovers the Sierra Contraviesa is a vine growing area producing some acceptable wine.

To the nearest beach la Rabita is only a 30 minute drive where there are fish restaurants.

The paper work for Molino Cerradura is in order with everything legal , ready to go with no delays.

We love it all ! However age and health are regrettably telling us to down size!
