Ripe for Reform Jimena

Property Ripe for Reform

Property to Reform in Jimena Village

This property in Jimena de la Frontera is a gem. It is one of the few remaining old style homes and has an abundance of features that are so fashionable these days. It is a two storeyed residence. The front door leads straight into the sitting room which you walk through to reach the dining area and from there the kitchen and outhouse. There is a shower tray in a corner of the kitchen which could be reformed to incorporate part of the laundry area to make a second bathroom. The bathroom is at the front of the property and has a three quarter length bath. This room could be tiled to give a warmer feel. The staircase leads up to three bedrooms all with original flooring. Almost all the ceilings have wooden beams and downstairs there is a small patio with back door which leads into the back lane. There are also many windows which give the property a light airy feeling.

Bare Bones Reforms

The roof currently has some corrugated asbestos panels but the wooden beams and supporting joists appear of solid construction. There are wonderful views upstairs that could be amplified. The home to its right has added an extra floor which is some 2 metres taller. As the precedence is already set, it should be relatively straightforward to raise the current height of this second floor. The  walls have been partly revealed in the sitting room and they are a wonderful addition, peeling back the years to solid stones and cement. The wiring appears modern and the bare bones just need fleshing out.  At only 45,000 € this is a cheap property and an interesting project that will bring its own rewards.

First Land Registry Inscription

This house has been owned by the same family for at least forty years. However, it has never been registered at Land Registry. This means that any purchase would require the First Inscription for you to guarantee future sale with clean title in your turn. The law states that the first two years after first registration of land deeds is a special situation. If you sell during that two year period you would not do so with an absolute guarantee against third parties. Having said which, that is why this remains a great property for the price and seems a pretty safe ‘risk’.

original features townhouse Jimena

Original Features Town House Jimena

Town House Jimena with Original Features

Rare opportunity to buy property with original features. This townhouse in Jimena has large rooms, all with exterior light. Like many properties built on a hill, this home is accessed via an inner staircase from the front door to the large hall area. The property consists of 3 double bedrooms and 1 bathroom. There is ample unused surface area and it is possible to add another bedroom and additional bathroom without losing the sense of space that flows throughout this family home. The kitchen is a very generous size and a good shape making it easy to create island galley and put in a large family size kitchen table. There is also a bay window room currently used as a study. In addition, an old style pantry with original beams that can be reformed into a great chill zone. This leads us onto a charming patio with original well that is still used and up some steps into a garden. The outdoor area measures approximately 54 m2 and the built area is 179 m2.

The sitting room has a chimney breast and fireplace installed but is no longer used. Having said which, it would be easy to restore. The overall feel of this property is a little art deco and some of the floor tiles are originals. This could be an exciting project where you can stamp your own personality on the property whilst drawing out its real charm.

Secret Garden with Super Views

The rooftop garden has views out across the gently undulating foothills. There is a lemon tree, custard apple and herb garden. In addition there is a barbecue area. On the whole, the interior and exterior both need a little TLC to restore this home to its former glory, but that is reflected in the price. At only 110,000 € there is real value here. IBI is approximately 265 € per annum.

This cottage with independent guest annex is also priced at 110,000 € and may be of interest to you.

Jimena village House to Reform

Jimena Property to Reform

Jimena Village House to Reform

This traditional 3 bed village house is in need of a little TLC to transform it into a great property. It is already habitable and has a large fireplace but with one or two renovations it will yield a much more profitable return. The front door opens out into a small sitting room. Beyond that on the same floor is a windowless bedroom that receives natural light from the adjoining sitting room, another hallway / study, the kitchen and the bathroom. The back door leads out onto a small patio which leads also onto a raised terrace that connects with another room that leads nowhere and is currently wasted space. Coming back down and into the sitting room you find the staircase up to the first floor where there are 2 bedrooms with natural light and views. The second bedroom is the one potentially accessible from the room that is wasted on the upper patio. This area could be transformed into a master bedroom with terrace and ensuite.

Investment Opportunity

This is on the market for only 58,000€. Even after spending money on the reform you will still end up with an attractive investment property. Then you will have a myriad of choices: permanent home, holiday home, long term let or short term lets to holidaymakers.

Location: Jimena de la Frontera

Well situated near wonderful walking routes and with a local mini market almost on its doorstep. This is a golden opportunity to transform a tired dwelling into a vibrant and inviting holiday home. Jimena de la Frontera attracts thousands of holiday makers throughout the year. It is a famous white village steeped in history that goes back to neolithic times. The castle, majestically placed atop the foothills, has a rich heritage of occupancy from Pagans to Muslims to Christians. In addition, the village is on the bird migratory route connecting Africa to Europe.

J120 6 bed

Bargain 6 bed property for sale Jimena de la Frontera

Under Offer – Contracts Exchanged

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.
