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.

Property in 3 hectares Jimena

Spacious and Secluded 2 bed 2 bath

For Sale. Beautiful property set in 3 hectares of land 3 km outside the village of Jimena de la Frontera. This 2 bed 2 bath property is spacious and secluded. There are ceiling beams throughout and wooden shutters complement the rustic style of the decor. The house nestles like a sparkling jewel in the natural landscape. It is a large property of approximately 280 m2 designed on two floors. With 2 double bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The ground floor has a very spacious sitting room with large fireplace and separate large kitchen; it is a modern design with central island and lots of window space. There is ample room for a large family sized table and chairs. There is also a bathroom on this floor.

Separate Guest Quarters

There is a self contained one bed studio property of approximately 60 m2 with shower room situated south of the main house. Ideal for guests. Between the two properties lies a 6 x 3 m swimming pool with roman steps.

Land, Water, Solar Power and Generator

The total amount of land is 3 hectares (30,000 m2). It borders the Los Alcornocales Natural Park and is a quite stunning location.

There is mains water pumped to the property. In addition, most of the power is solar – sufficient to operate the swimming pool pump, and heating and hot water requirements for one or two people. In addition, there is a diesel powered generator which has hardly been used. Part of the land, approximately 500 m2, is currently  fenced off as a quadrant / paddock for horses. There are many cork trees and it is a wonderful, peaceful location.

The land is relatively flat and offers views towards San Pablo de Buceite and Gaucin to the east, and west towards the hills of Jimena de la Frontera. It is possible to build a dew pond for irrigation and there is a natural dip in the land which would be ideal for this purpose. Access to the property is via a dirt track which runs alongside the border to the Los Alcornocales Natural Park. As such, it goes without saying that this is a wonderful area for rambling and bird watching.

Fully Legalised land and Property

All of the paperwork has been notarised and registered. IBI is approximately 600€ per year. We strongly recommend visiting this lovely location to fully appreciate what is on offer.

For Sale 2 Bed San Pablo de Buceite

2 x 1 bed properties on same title deeds

The heart of the countryside with all the creature comforts.  Two bungalows each with one bed one bath, sitting room and kitchen area. They share a beautiful garden and enjoy lovely views. Bungalow number one, the original property is built a little higher up and has an extended terrace which looks out onto the Los Alcornocales Natural Park. To the left of this property is a smaller patio area which would be an ideal place for a hot tub which could also be used in summer as a plunge pool. Bungalow number two is at the entrance to the property and is ideal as a guest property  or to rent out short or long term. We can help with getting the relevant licence for short term holiday makers (Vivienda Rural). Both properties are separated by the garden and have their own independent access. (Incidentally, technically these are both detached properties.)

Beautiful Garden

The garden is beautifully maintained with fruit trees and flowers. The present owners have created a pretty environment in which to live.

Pedestrianised Access

Access is via a pedestrianised road and private driveway without the worry of noisy traffic.

Location: San Pablo de Buceite

This is one of the traditional white villages that Andalusia is famous for. Although this particular village was no  more than a hamlet a 100 years ago and now has a population of maybe 1,500 inhabitants – including some of the outlying neighbourhoods. This whole area was originally owned by the famous gin making family the Larios in part and was in part common land for the grazing and rearing of cattle. Many families stem from either Gaucin or Jimena. The village has supermarkets a medical centre, sports centre with swimming pool and very popular yoga classes which people of all ages attend.

Bird Migration

This area is hugely popular with bird watchers as it forms part of the migratory route to and from Africa. This is a great opportunity to live in a small and friendly village and have a separate property to bring in a little extra cash. All for only 110,000€

Bargain 6 bed property for sale Jimena de la Frontera

6 bedroomed property Jimena

This is a wonderful opportunity to buy a six bedroomed property in the heart of Jimena de la Frontera and with wonderful views looking out over the Serrania up to Gaucin and down to Manilva. The property was inherited and the paperwork updated and notarised. Now they have decided to put this up for sale at a bargain price of only 120,000€.  We have properties listed that have been fully refurbished and are now for sale at around 276,000€ with the same or less to offer than this.

Access to the property is via an antique, wooden, double breasted door which opens out into a large hallway with stairs to the right that lead upstairs to three bedrooms – all doubles, and an attic room at the top of the building which spans the width and affords fantastic views. Back on the ground floor there is a further double bedroom facing the street and then from the hall there is a step down into the very large sitting room which again spans the width of the property. There is a wonderful fireplace commanding centre stage and opposite is a large Welsh Dresser which is actually two dressers placed together. But this gives you an idea of  the size. Through this room is the kitchen on the right and a further room which could also be a bedroom – which  would make 7. This leads out onto a terrace which looks south over part of the famous white village of Jimena de la Frontera. There is also a communal terrace shared by the neighbours. This ground floor has a bathroom and there is a further bathroom downstairs in the basement. There are two bedrooms down here and a patio area. This floor leads out onto a small lane and gives yet another opportunity. It is possible to split this family home up into two units. The downstairs with patio and bathroom can be converted into a 1 bed apartment, with independent access. This would also give extra storage downstairs where the (steep) staircase is currently.

Ready to Move In

All told, this is a phenomenal opportunity. The upstairs bedrooms and attic are ready to move into immediately, as is the ground floor area. the basement area would benefit from some light reforms but all can be done either whilst living there or before moving in. What is important is that you don’t lose this opportunity. . . a 6/7 bed property on three floors for only 120,000€ This cannot be bettered.
