Off Grid Colmenar Cortes

Colmenar Cortes 3 bed finca

Reduced to 465,000,00€

Off-grid home seeks new custodian.

Turnkey fully furnished property in Colmenar forest. This is a 3 bed, 3 bath finca of 1.1 hectares (11,000 m2) with space for non-permanent structures such as Yurts or Tepees. The main house is a single storey, raised roof bungalow of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 open planned living room-kitchens. Each half connects to the large outdoor terrace via its own front door. If 2 independent living quarters were preferred, there is a connecting door.

A large terrace looks out due south to the mountains opposite and between them lie vistas of Africa. At night, look up, the sky is a vast expanse of stars unveiled and sparkling. To the right of the terrace is a pool and a 15 m2 covered chill zone/tea room that has a Moroccan feel to it.

In addition, at the bottom of the grounds is a separate studio with storage, living and sleeping area plus kitchen and bathroom of approximately 50 m2.

Very near to this little house is an imitation First Nations Medicine Wheel and an amazing stone sculpture of an iguana built from two large boulders to form the head and other stones of various sizes placed to create steps representing the flanks and legs.

Eco Culture Lifestyle Choice

During 23 years, the owners have transformed this estate into a permaculture of exceptional beauty. The finca is self-sufficient in many aspects. Apart from an annual run, to stock up on staples such as pulses and grains, the owners can stay here for months on end. An overall tropical feel, with frangipani flowers, tamarind trees and over 20 varieties of palm trees. There is an organic cornucopia of herbs, spices, fruit and vegetables all grown here: smoky cherry-tomatoes, elderberry, macadamias, mangos, mulberries and the amazing San Pedro cactus, to name but a few. Absolutely remarkable. Water is abundant. In summer they use around 10,000 litres daily of fresh spring water which is pumped from a bore hole and from an ancient spring used over millennia. Living off grid, they have 2 x 10,000 litre storage tanks for water and 12 solar panels which power 230 volts for day time usage and 12 watts for night time to disconnect from the hum. In addition they have a back-up petrol generator that they have almost never used. ADSL internet is via radio waves and both homes have washing machines and all necessary mod cons for 21st century living.

Colmenar Cork Oak Forest

This is a very special property located in the heart of the Los Alcornocales Forest in Colmenar, Cortes. It would suit those who like being away from the madding crowd and have hidden depths of resources to call upon. You do not need to be a recluse or a hermit to live here, but the land must be maintained all year round. Naturally, it is such an exceptional place that it requires exceptional owners who in turn attract exceptional friends. The degree of separation depends on what you need and want. The village of Colmenar is within walking distance and there are lovely restaurants and a river beach there. Twenty minutes by car from there is the famous white village of Gaucín and if the coast calls you, it is a further 40 minutes’ drive.

Needs Permanent Presence

If it all sounds like bliss, arrange to view. If you would love to live there for a few months at a time, but your business does not allow you to disconnect for longer, consider employing permanent staff, and fly in when time allows. You need an off-grid / permaculture mentality for this to be a good fit. This will suit very few people, but may well be exactly what you have been waiting for. Only 550,000€ 465,000€

1 bed San Pablo

One Bed Cottage San Pablo

Now Sold

Small Cottage San Pablo de Buceite

Reduced to 99,950.00€! From 115,000.00€ Pretty, one bed single storey property with a plot of 470 m2 in a quiet country lane east of the River Guadiaro in the Los Alcornocales natural park. The lane is surrounded by avocado fields and gently undulating hills. There is access to the river by walking along the lane for 20 minutes and cutting through the fields. A very privileged zone and when properties come up for sale here, they go fast.

Work on Roof Needed

Built area totals 133 m2. It is possible to build a total of 150 m2 and maximum of 2 storeys in this area. An en suite could be added where the back patio is and the bathroom could form another en suite for a second bedroom. Originally, this was a 2 bed but the current owners made the sitting room bigger and changed access to the bathroom. The shape can be kept as it is or reconfigured according to your wishes so long as you keep within the permitted metreage.  The kitchen was originally an extension and they used corrugated roofing called ‘uralite’. This needs removing and replaced by tiles. Planning permission will not be a problem. There is some flexibility on price to take into account the need to fix the roof. Basically, get a quote and subtract it from asking price.

Space for a Swimming Pool

There is a garden with orange and lemon trees and also a back patio. Outdoor space is 337 m2 – this includes a storage area which was used as a dark room and has electricity connected. There is also a shed for tools etc.

Location San Pablo de Buceite, Cadiz

This country lane is like a small hamlet or urbanisation in its own right. It is about 3 km from San Pablo de Buceite Village where you will find all amenities from doctor’s to chemist’s to primary school and supermarkets. The lane sits east of the river Guadiaro, separated by avocado fields which you can walk through to get to the weir. There are some great tapas bars and ventas nearby, too. The village is part of the municipality of Jimena de la Frontera.

Impeccable Paperwork all Fully Legal

The agency holds a copy of the Nota Simple and IBI and we confirm that the paperwork is fully updated and correct. IBI (council tax) is 298 euros per year.

The Little Things

Buy free range eggs, honey and vegetables from the neighbours. You can pick up kindling in winter time from the local area and wood can be delivered to your door. It’s also a popular birdwatching, rambling and cycling area. Ah. The Good Life.

3 bed 2 bath San Pablo

3 bed 2 bath with Pool San Pablo

3 bed 2 bath & pool San Pablo

This well built 3 bed 2 bath property requires the finishing touches. At present the pool is pre-installed, and the new dining room and kitchen on the ground floor plus the large bedroom upstairs all need cementing over the brickwork and paint applied. All of this reform work is at the back of the property and not visible to passers by. The owner’s intention was to add another staircase in the middle of the house to lead to the large bedroom and the original passageway. Also, to open out the back wall to lead into the swimming pool area. This will add considerable value to the property.

Ready to Live in the Property

At the front is a large porch and small garden area with beautiful pine tree. The house is built on 2 floors. The sleeping area is on the first floor where there is a shared bathroom. On the ground floor is the open plan living area with cosy fireplace and sitting room which leads to the dining area and gallery style kitchen. Beyond which is the downstairs shower room; this is fairly basic and could benefit from a reform.

Finishing Touches

The asking price is 148,000 € and a further 25,000 – 40,000€ is necessary to tile pool and add pool fixtures and fittings and to finish off the dining/kitchen area and large bedroom upstairs. Meanwhile, however, you can live in this property and enjoy all the benefits of country living.

First Registration of Title Deeds

The property has Private Contract Title Deeds. This means it has never been registered at Land Registry but this can be done at the time of signing. However, on first registration the property takes 2 years to become fully registered and as such it is not suitable for people looking to buy with a mortgage.

Location Heart of Countryside

San Pablo de Buceite is a lively but small village, with full amenities, that comes under the municipality of Jimena de la Frontera. The village has everything you could need: shops, chemist’s, primary school, health centre, public swimming pool / sports facilities and restaurants. This property is situated in a sleepy cul de sac close to the east banks of the river Guadiaro. It is possible to walk through the avocado fields to the river and is an ideal location for walks both long and short. It is at the foot of the Los Alcornocales Natural Park.

Opportunity for Cash Buyers

If you have the means to buy this in cash and welcome an opportunity to finish a project and end up with a beautiful 3 bed 2 bath with pool in a wonderful location, then this is the property for you! Once finished the property could go back on to the market at around 285,000€
