This time, we would like to feature a variety of Cortijos for sale in Andalucia. This typical Cortijo-style still is an inspiration for our clients. Some are closer to the beach, some are reformed, old farmhouses. Others still have the stables in one of the wings, and again, others converted those to the guest accommodation.
When clients are looking for typical Andalucian style houses, they are often looking for Cortijos for sale in Andalucia. The architecture of the original Cortijos counts with four wings, built around a traditional courtyard. One of the wings was dedicated to a stately “Casas Señorial”, the owner’s residence. The other wings, of simpler finishings, contained accommodation for the workers, stables and sheds. If the owners were very well off, there was even more than one courtyard, keeping the Casa Señorial completely private.
In new built as well as in reforms, they ask for a pebbled courtyard, the fountains and the old, antique wooden doors. Antique stone animal feeders are used as planters and the large “tinajas”, jars in which the olive oil was stored are added in the garden for decoration. And of course, inside, the floors are finished with either the traditional clay tiles, marble or the typical “Baldosas hidraúlicas”, the mosaic floors that remind us of the Moorish times.
