small country estate Jimena

10 hectare estate Jimena de la Frontera

Small Country Estate, Jimena de la Frontera

Property with land Jimena de la Frontera. Set atop gently undulating foothills. Views from this south west facing property are truly fantastic. The estate consists of foothills, copses and meadows of 10 hectares. They include a natural water source – from one of the last uncaptured  and unpolluted rivers, the Hozgarganta, plus man-made dew ponds. The main property, on 2 floors, has 7 bedrooms, 6 of them en-suite. The large entrance hall connects to the drawing / sitting room, large TV room, utility/laundry room, formal dining room and spacious country style fully-fitted kitchen. Central heating and air conditioning throughout, fitted wardrobes, marble floors, marble mantelpieces around the fireplaces and over 100 m2 of loggia and terraces around the exterior of the property.

Guest / Staff Accommodation

In addition, there is a lodge house of 2 bedrooms, sitting room and bathroom. Currently this is where the Estate Keeper / Groundsman lives but can also be used as guest accommodation. As expected, the property boasts a large swimming pool surrounded by loggia, terraces, pergola and pool house complete with 2 changing rooms. Naturally, there is also a storage area for garden equipment and for the water tank housing.

Stables

The stable block has 5 boxes and a 2 bedroomed ostlers / grooms apartment. This section has not been used for some time and, metaphorically speaking, needs the cobwebs brushed away. Importantly, like the rest of the buildings, this is structurally sound.

Location – Estacion de Jimena

Situated just outside Estacion de Jimena, also known as Los Angeles, it is nestled on the fringes of Los Alcornocales Natural Park with a small off-shoot of the river Hozgarganta running through the land. The source of the river Hozgarganta is La Sauceda, with an altitude of 160 meters. The river meanders along 35 kilometers, mostly through the beautiful Los Alcornocales Natural Park. Technically, a large tributary of the river Guadiaro, this river is one of the least polluted in Western Europe, being at the moment the only Andalusian river that does not have reservoirs set up along its basin.

The river travels through an ecological backdrop that nurtures and attracts many species. This estate also falls directly within the migratory path for birds coming from and going to Africa. You see storks, kites, honey buzzards, booted and short-toed eagles and Egyptian vultures to name but a few. The land is well maintained and has eucalyptus, carob, cork and even gall oak trees as well as orange and avocado orchards. There is a lot of wood that can be harvested as part of the forestry management – a resource that has been overlooked as yet. The property and land look east towards the famous white village and castle of Jimena de la Frontera, west towards Gibraltar and south towards the Costa del Sol.

In summary

Almost 10 hectares of land, (9,850m2), a 7 bed main house (563m2), 2 bedroomed guest house (86 m2), stables with 2 bed studio (157m2), garage for 2 cars and 2 storage rooms (83m2) including large water tank facility. Outdoor amenities are; pool house with dressing rooms; showers and toilet (56m2); swimming pool (16m x 5,5m); and more than 100m2 of covered terraces topped off with well manicured and landscaped gardens. Supplied with the following finishes: marble floors and fireplaces, satellite TV, Telephone, Internet. Fitted wardrobes, Air conditioning and Central heating. There is also a separate irrigation system plus river source and dew ponds for the land. Estate reduced by 500,000 €. Terrific value.

IBI (Council Tax) approx 2,400 € per annum.

Priced to Sell Estacion de Jimena

Priced to Sell 3 bed 1 bath

Great value 3 bed 1 bath village house in Estacion de Jimena. This is on the market for only 75,000 € keenly priced by a motivated seller.

The layout of the house is as follows: The front door opens out into the sitting room which has been extended to incorporate the ground floor bedroom as if it were a wing. There is also a wood burning stove.  It is a delightfully spacious area and the kitchen leads on from this, behind which is the bath room and staircase to the left. The staircase forms a ‘y’ shape with the left side leading to a first floor inner patio and 2 further bedrooms plus walk-in dressing room. The other side of the staircase leads to the old kitchen which could easily be converted into a second bathroom. After light reforms the property’s value will increase by approximately 40%.

Possible Light Reforms

The bathroom currently has a half bath and the water is heated by an electric immersion heater. The half bath can be easily removed and replaced by a walk in shower to maximise space.

The property has original tile-work on the ground floor which is a great feature. The upstairs is partly re-tiled. The walk-in dressing room can be converted to a sitting room which takes advantage of the views over the hillside. Other property owners in this street have extended this area out into a bay window as the balcony is long and about a half metre wide.

The second bedroom looks out onto the inner patio. This is a first floor patio, large enough for a table and chairs for al fresco dining. You could also consider using it to the extend the second bedroom making it a more generous size whilst at the same time preserving the natural light by using a roof window or skylight.

There is plenty of outdoor parking and close to shops and the train station.

Fantastic opportunity to own this independent property in the gated community of San Roque Club. A four bed, four bath townhouse with a front and back garden. Set on 3 floors with the top floor having a walk around terrace, half with pergola covered with heather thatch. The other half unprotected from the sun. The views from this roof terrace are gorgeous. This is a spacious house in a beautiful backdrop. It is on the market at only 259,000 €. The surface area of the house is 240 m2, the porch is 44 m2 and the plot of land, inc garden is approximately 525 m2. The garden curves around the side of the house to the back and has beautiful mature trees and hedges along its border.

Back in the property, the hall way leads into the kitchen on the left that also has its own door into the garden. On this level, is also a lovely large sitting room with fireplace, guest bathroom and one bedroom next to the sitting room. All the downstair rooms have French Windows or back door out to the garden. The stairs up to the first floor have natural light coming in from the solarium. On this first floor are 3 double bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own ensuite and terrace, although one terrace is just ½ metre wide although it is long. The floor above has the solarium / roof terrace. This extends over the whole surface area.

100% Finance Option Available

This 4 bed 4 bath distressed sale is a bank repossession and also offers up to a 100% mortgage for the price of the property. (You would have to make a down payment of 10% of the total amount lent and it is of course dependent on an individual’s financial circumstances).

This first month (17 December until 16th January, 2  p.m.), the bank runs a private auction for all offers at or above asking price. After this month if no enquiries are received, the property stays at the asking price or above for a further 6 months. When that time period lapses, offers below asking price would be considered – but do not even think about waiting that long. This property is already attracting interest.

Some Light Reforms

The blinds to the property are damaged and all need fixing. It should be possible to do this quite easily without replacing them. This house has been closed up for quite a while and paint is peeling from above the skirting boards in some rooms. The kitchen requires an oven and hob plus white goods. The partition wall between car port and garden is cracked and needs rendering work done. In our opinion, the low asking price easily covers the inconvenience of attending to these items.

Old Golf Course

The old Golf Course is 6.508 metres, and a Par 72. It is reserved for members only except for the daily public periods when the general public can make use of these wonderful fairways for a premium rate of 160€ per green fee.

Situated at the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja, where the mountains meet the sea, it is a legendary home for European golf Created in 1990. Designed by Dave Thomas with bunkers redesigned by Seve ballesteros, The Old Course is rated amongst the finest in Europe.

Art and Culture Lectures

The San Roque Club also hosts lectures organised by The Arts Society De La Frontera where experts entertain with anecdotes and images on a wide range of subjects, from famous artists to Andalusia and its Golden Age. Lectures last for about an hour and the entrance price includes an after lecture glass of wine and opportunity to get to know fellow attendees.

This property is about 2 km from the beach area, situated in the upper part of the town known as Barrio Alto.

Location – Sanlucar  de Barrameda

All tourist sites mention Sanlucar. It has a rich history that stretches back to Roman times. It was also popular with Royals and the town hall is a must-see; a nineteenth century palace with beautiful craftsmanship and a fabulous garden. There is a real abundance of things to do here. Part of the Sherry triangle, it is famous for its Manzanilla sherries and guided tours of the wine cellars are de rigueur. It is also on the hugely important bird migratory route and very popular with birders. Many restaurateurs also come here from all along the coast to buy the famous Sanlucar de Barrameda prawns fresh off the boats. Another name dropping example: Columbus’ third voyage in 1498 set off from here. In short, a town with rich tourism potential.

Preferential Financial terms

As you would expect, this bank repossession can be offered with up to a 100% mortgage – depending on your personal circumstances. The amount lent will never include taxes and other purchase expenses so always allow an extra 10 – 12% on top.

Summer Rentals

There is an all year round rentals market. There tend to be three main offerings: long term rentals; nine month lets then lucrative lets in the summer season; and finally short term lets all year round. You can have this as a second home and let it out when not using it, for example. Either way, why not visit this 3 bed apartment now when you still have the chance?
