Cortijo Gloriana was built by its current owners and completed in 2006. Nestled in the mountains of the whitewashed village of Riogordo, Cortijo Gloriana boasts stunning views of the Axarquía region, with the Mediterranean Sea in the distance.
This beautiful villa is located around 5 kilometres (3 miles) outside of Riogordo. The gated plot is accessed via a Tarmac road from the village up to Cortijo Gloriana’s short, unpaved track. The home is also accessible coming from Periana and the coastal town of Vélez Málaga-Torre del Mar.
The large driveway can accommodate several cars, also boasting covered parking for two cars and a one-car garage.
The modern, Mediterranean home is accessed through large, wooden doors. Through the doors is a bright patio with a water fountain and glass walls looking into the home. Once inside the patio, there’s another wooden door to access the main house.
The downstairs of the home features a large, open plan living area with mahogany wooden floors. Through the living area’s large, sliding doors is a veranda overlooking the Axarquía and Mediterranean Sea in the distance. The veranda is the perfect place for enjoying Málaga’s spectacular sunsets or entertaining guests.
Just off the living/dining area is the kitchen, featuring a large cooking island with stainless steel worktop. The kitchen boasts Miele and Siemens appliances and a Gaggenau ceiling extractor. Adjacent to the kitchen is a pantry and a further storage room, with the latter offering access to the terrace.
Also on the home’s lower level are two bedrooms and a bathroom with stunning mountain views, a guest toilet and library/office.
Gloriana’s upper level is accessed through a stunning, floating, wooden staircase in the open-plan living area. When reaching the upstairs corridor, with laminate flooring, you are blown away by a glass wall, offering incredible mountain views.
From the corridor, you can access the terrace, bathroom and the four upstairs bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom and separate dressing area.
Cortijo Gloriana’s house is equipped with Daikin climate control and a state-of-the-art alarm system. Next to the house is a covered outdoor kitchen area with a built in barbecue, stone worktop and fridge.
Above the garage is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom annex with a kitchenette, perfect for staff or guest accommodation.
In total, this stunning country property covers 18,000 square metres (1.8 hectares; 4.5 acres) with 70 olive trees, 30 almond trees and other fruiting trees. Part of the land has been fenced.
If you’re looking for luxury country living with breathtaking views combined nearby amenities, friendly local neighbours and a village filled with passion and tradition, Cortijo Gloriana is the perfect home for you.
