Location: Monda, Costa del Sol, SpainUnique country house located on the outskirts of Monda, approximately 1.5km from the village. The road access is good, most of the road is paved except the last 150 metres which is a dirt track, but in good condition.
The property is distributed over one floor and has 3 bedrooms (all with large built-in wardrobes), 2 bathrooms, a good size kitchen and a spacious living room/diner with open fireplace and AC. The circular shape of the house and vaulted ceilings with a dome in the centre make it a very unique property!
The plot is fully fenced, is relatively flat, and therefore, very manageable. A garden separates the main house from an enclosed studio with large windows which is currently being used as a paint shop and storage but could be converted into an guest studio.
Next to this building is a pergola which is used throughout the year as an outdoor dining area. The rest of the plot is planted with olive trees and offers complete privacy. There is ample parking and two carports that can easily fit 5 cars.
The property requires modernization but offers a lot of potential. It is connected to mains electricity and town water.
Monda is a vibrant small town in the mountains just inland from the Costa del Sol.
Situated past Ojén, it lies in a valley at 365m above sea level and has a population of less than 2,000. It is well-linked by road with Marbella, just 15km away, as well as Coin and Cartama (for Malaga). Thanks to development on the nearby coast over the last few decades, the town has enjoyed new prosperity. It also hosts the famous Marbella Design Academy.
The village's dominant feature, which stands out for miles around, is the large stone building which stands atop the tree-covered hill above the village. Although this resembles a fortification, it is in fact a superbly-located and traditionally-styled modern hotel, Castillo de Monda, built on the site of the Moorish Castillo de Al-Mundat.
The town was originally occupied by an Ibero-Roman fortified enclosure established in the 3rd to 1st Centuries BC by the Romans. This was to protect the indigenous Iberian population and to defend the road leading to the more important town of Coín.
