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.

Est Jimena 3 bed 1 bath

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.

There are 2 bedrooms, one bathroom and an open planned kitchen/sitting room. The neighbours are quiet and the street is central to everywhere.

Location – Centre of Estacion de Jimena

The cultural centre offers evening classes in a wide variety of subjects and the train station is within walking distance – as are the butcher’s, the baker’s and the candle stick makers. (OK we made the last one up, but there is a grocery store nearby too.) In fact it is close to all amenities and no need to get into the car – all can be reached on foot. the train station is also within easy walking distance and you can commute to Algeciras or Ronda with ease. If working in Gibraltar, it is better to go by car as the La Linea / San Roque train station is not conveniently placed for the border crossing. It is possible to switch from train to bus in Algeciras as an alternative if you wish, for example, to go to Gibraltar airport. You are also spoilt for choice for amenities, there’s a zoo/animal reserve, an exotic birds aviary, several cafes and restaurants and it is also near a petrol station. The main town of Jimena de la Frontera is 3 km away. Also a great location for bird watching and exploring the Andalusian foothills – situated at the edge of Los Alcornocales Natural Park witha host of walking routes. Jimena dela Frontera also has a rich history from Roaman and Arabic times and a castle that has been restored to reveal a wonderful history of conquest and archaeological techniques.

Est Jimena Restaurante

Estacion de Jimena Restaurant and 2 apartments

Estación de Jimena Restaurant & 2 apartments – 407,000€

Rare opportunity to purchase prime location restaurant and accommodation. Two separate apartments. All 3 properties interconnect if required.

The lower apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The front door leads into a huge, open plan kitchen and living area with the bedrooms leading off from it. There is also a good sized patio which looks out to the hills of the Serrania Ronda and Los Alcornocales natural park. The patio also has a wishing well which can be reopened.

Back inside the home, the biggest bedroom used to be connected to the upstairs apartment via a spiral metal staircase. The owners have this safely stored and is included in the sale of the property. Reconnecting both properties is largely a cosmetic job; easy to implement if required. The downstairs apartment is connected to the restaurant by a staircase which can be used or closed up as required. There is also a decent sized storage area.

The upstairs apartment benefits from the original stone work exterior and looks like a quaint cottage or converted barn. It consists of one bed and one bath with good sized kitchen and living area.

Restaurant Recent Going Concern.

The restaurant was trading until recently and with the licence still being current it is easy to reflect new details. The sitting area indoors is sufficient for a small to medium size business – around 10 tables and space outside for about 6 more. There are customer bathrooms and easy access for wheel chair users.

The restaurant kitchen is fully tiled for easy cleaning and has stainless steel counters. As expected it has a large, professional, extractor fan above the professional range and double oven. There is also a dedicated bar area in the restaurant to prepare drinks and for the waiting staff to collect plates to take to tables.

Another great feature is that it is already set up as a Spanish Limited Company to ring-fence any profits.

Located near the train station.

This business benefits from footfall to and from the railway station. It is situated in an important tourist region. Jimena de la Frontera is famous for the Arabic-Roman heritage, Los Alcornocales natural park, bird migratory route, flamenco and rambling, to name but a few.

All paperwork and Company Filing requirements are up to date. This is a streamlined opportunity with a great all year tourist and residential catchment area. Ideal Italian restaurant for example.
