DescriptionLimited availability! Prices at time of listing are from 260,000 reduced from 610.000 euros for a Model: Buenaventura 3 bed country house on Oro Del Desierto I, Desert Springs.
The cottages are based on the precise shapes of the old individual cortijo houses, the traditional �casas del campo�of The Almanzora Valley.
Keeping in with history but with a modern twist was the logic behind the designs. There was a tremendous growth of these in the 19th century countryside to house the enormous increase field workers, working to feed the new mining communities. Sadly, many of these homes have now disappeared back into rubble and soil from which they were built, but if you look carefully you can see their ruins everywhere in the local landscape. They started with a simple rectangular construction, with thick walls, buttressed corners and a flat roof. As the family grew, a mono-pitch roofed bedroom was added above, where it was cooler, and, if the money continued to come in, then another room was added above, with a roof �a cuatro aguas�.
These modern Cortijo style houses are built with all mod cons, with large terraces and pergolas in their own private gardens, but in clusters sharing beautiful individually landscaped gardens and swimming pools in semi-closed communities, with all the cost benefits implied.
They are very tranquil and private. The rustic style is carried inside with natural �rollizo� beams and solid natural wood features, a cottage fireplace, traditional style joinery, terracotta floors and traditional tiling. They all have large terraces at first floor level and a separate garage parking.
