Fabulous opportunity to own this two hundred year old former Inn. Situated in this historic location close to the shore of lake Bermejales ‘la Posada de la Colonia’ is a traditionally constructed country property which has been providing accommodation, drinks and local fayre for two centuries. It currently has a local bar/restaurant with a separate access on the ground floor along with a huge patio/courtyard and swimming pool wrapped with original living accommodation, animal stalls and workshops on the ground floor and modern additional living accommodation and letting rooms on the first floor. Fabulous views, realistically priced to create your own rural resting place among the olive groves and horse trekking routes of the ‘Poniente Granadino’ in Andalusia.
‘La Colonia’ is a pretty hamlet overlooking lake Bermejales just one kilometre from the town of Fornes. It is also just a 40 minute drive to either the city or airport of Granada. The area is famous for cycling, horse trekking, hiking and triathlon training around this beautiful lake,
Occupying a large corner plot the ‘Posada’ (historic accommodation for travellers and forest workers) is currently run by the local owners to provide accommodation and refreshments for tourists and local farm workers. Visitors are attracted here by the natural parks and the lake which is well noted for wind surfing and the neighbouring riding stables jus a few metres away.
On the ground floor is of course the bar which has the original fireplace, modern serving bar and kitchen plus toilet fascilities. The bar can also lead directly out into the courtyard and pool area. There is traditional living accommodation on this floor with open plan living/kitchen area with original beamed ceilings and fireplace in the lounge, two bedrooms and a bathroom all wrapped around the very pretty courtyard. On one half of the first floor there is a second lounge, two large double bedrooms and a study leading to a terrace with open country views over the courtyard.
On the other side of the first floor is a more modern wing which includes another lounge with its own fieplace, country kitchen and three further modern double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Around the courtyard are several original animal stores and a large workshop/garage which could all be developed into further accommodation to create smart courtyard suites by the outdoor dining areas and modern swimming pool and BBQ area.
At this great price a new owner could create something very special here adding their own stamp on two hundred years of local history.
Viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate this special location.
