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.

During this time, rentals have risen steadily.

Lower Montenegral is part of the municipality of Jimena de la Frontera and the town hall will not give planning permission for a permanent swimming pool. Having said which, portable pools come in a variety of models and sizes and conform with town hall guidelines.
