The current owners have enjoyed many beautiful summers here and have decided to let another family benefit from its peaceful location and well tended lawns. The stonework is impeccable, as is the barbecue area. It is a wonderful and safe setting for families with children who wish to explore. There is even a tree house. Sitting areas extend all around the outside of the house and the views are panoramic. Thwre is irrigation water from its own well and mains drinking water.

This area was ring-fenced and planning permission given by the authorities at the Town Hall for this small urbanisation. The neighbourhood is a small hamlet of properties, each with around a half hectare of urban land.

San Felipe La Linea

San Felipe La Linea 3 bed 2 bath

Price Reduced from 150,000 € to 129,950 €

La Linea San Felipe 3 bed 2 bath Close to Border

A great opportunity to buy a well located apartment with parking. This 3 bed 2 bath was once a 4 bed but the previous owners changed a bedroom into a dining room making it a much more comfortable property. The sitting room has an area with a bureau used as a study zone and it also benefits from Sevilla tiles in a bay window area and views straight across to Gibraltar and beyond.

Layout of the Apartment

The front door opens into a passage way with kitchen, 2 bedrooms, full bathroom and dining room to the right and third bedroom, shower room and sitting room straight ahead. Imagine a horse shoe shape and it is easier to visualise. All rooms are exterior with natural light except for the bathrooms. One of the 3 bedrooms is currently used as a store room, This room is a double, as is the one next to it, both of which share the full bathroom adjacent to them. The third bedroom could take a 110 cm bed but is best described as a single.

Location

It is literally a stone’s throw from the border with Gibraltar. As such, it is ideal for those of you who work there or have business there which necessitates frequent visits. It is in such a fine location that it may also interest you as an investment for your Rentals Portfolio. Naturally, being so near the airport it will always attract people looking to stay overnight or a few days, tops. AirBnB, Booking.com and Trip Adviser are still buoyant despite the pandemic. In truth, business sets its own pulse. Equally and for the same business pragmatism, it is attractive as a long term let option for your portfolio. Take a look at hotels in La Linea close to Gibraltar to see their popularity. This property is attractive to let either on a shared house basis or the whole apartment. In addition, the communal areas are well maintained. The town centre is ten minutes away, the bus station 5 minutes away, post office and banks are all close by.

Right to Parking Bay in Garage

This property has a parking bay in the basement area of the building. It is bay No. 41. All car owners who live here are not lucky enough to have dedicated parking. A lottery was held and owners allocated bays if their number was chosen. This is a private contract with the community of owners which is assigned on sale of the property. The cost is 45 EUR per month. This is such a great feature.

Costs

The Council Tax is around 450 EUR per year and community of owners fees are low. This is a singular opportunity. Contact us to view now. Oh and did we mention the owner bought it for much more?

Plus, planning permission granted for up to 9 terraced properties within 2,000 m2. New builds are more popular than ever since the pandemic. So a real investment is on offer here.

Professional Kitchen

Well Maintained Grounds with Loggia

The stunning, manicured and mature gardens are a valuable feature with ‘Casita’ bar, an outside kitchen and dining area, the swimming pool, which has a unique kidney shape and the covered loggia and gazebo. The historic wishing well is also located here.

Separate Staff Quarters

Additional separate staff cottage with one bedroom, kitchen, open plan sitting and dining area, bathroom and covered private terrace to the rear.

3 bed 2 bath & pool

Jimena D L F Detached 3 bed 1 bath & pool

Jimena D L F Detached 3 bed 1 bath.

This delightful two floor property is set on a plot of land of some 1,200 – 1,400 m2 – exact size to be confirmed. The front door leads to a charming sitting room with fireplace. The kitchen is also in a rustic style with great views looking out onto the pool and garden. The bedrooms, 2 doubles and a single, are upstairs. Double Glazing throughout and air conditioning in some rooms. On the ground floor, leading off from the kitchen, is a dining room and leading out into the garden, a laundry area. The bathroom is a walk in shower situated off from the dining area. The house and garden offer a lot of potential. One of the upstairs bedrooms, for example, could be converted into a second bathroom and the garage next to the sitting room could become a third bedroom, built adjoining the shower room. It may also be possible to put decking on top of this room to afford sweeping views of the castle and river.

Priced to Sell.

One of the garages is currently an outhouse divided into stable and storage – the stable is used to home the owners’ pet Shetland Pony, Lola, but, equally, this feature could be converted to a hen coop or reformed in some way. It faces out towards the hills of Jimena and although not really suitable as a stable for a full sized pony or horse, is a wonderful extra addition with thick brick walls.

The town hall has expanded the parameters of urban land and now almost the whole plot of land is included as urban. The stable and the other side, however, is not. This means that whilst you could build up to the stable, you could not convert the current building into something for residential use.

Pool with 2 independent garages.

Built late 1990’s, in a rustic style, this 3 bed 1 bath has the rare added bonuses of a wonderful swimming pool and 2 separate garages, – unusual to find in a Jimena de la Frontera property. The property has a paved drive and stone wall fencing constructed in an artisanal style with rustic stone work built to last by master craftsmen.  The pool is at the back of the property, facing open fields, giving privacy from the road. As you may expect, there is also a barbecue area on a raised porch area between kitchen and pool; a wonderful shaded area for entertaining al fresco for family and friends.

Location Near River

This detached home, located near the river, famous hill side walks and the historic castle of Jimena de la Frontera, is priced to sell. Located in a peaceful part of Jimena old town, near the river offering beautiful country walks and the castle can be seen from the street. This property is nestled in the beautiful Andalusian foothills.  Another positive to be factored in is that it is built on only a slight incline, which by Jimena standard’s can be considered a mere hop, skip and jump away. At only 200,000 € it really is a good deal and one that could be snapped up as a short to medium term investment. You can almost guarantee this is a safe investment with positive equity yield of a minimum 50,000 €- 75,000 € gross in 5 – 7 years. We do not think there is another property on the market at this price with pool and 2 garages in this beautiful white village of Jimena de la Frontera. It is an ideal family home either to live in all year round or as a second home to get away from the stresses and strains of working life. Situated 30 minutes from La Linea/Gibraltar, it is possible to commute to work from here. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. You owe it to yourself to at least view this property.
