Off Grid Colmenar Cortes

Colmenar Cortes 3 bed finca

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€

Istan 3 bed

Istan Townhouse 3 bed

Property now Sold

Istan 3 bed 2 bath and WC

Great opportunity to buy a family home in beautiful Istan. This terraced town house, built 2001, is in an urbanisation which has communal areas and pool. The property is built on 2 floors with family living area, dining room, sitting room and kitchen / laundry area plus guest WC on the ground floor. 3 double bedrooms are on the first floor with 2 full bathrooms and terrace with lovely views..  This is an ideal property for young families as the patio and private garden leads straight out via your own private door to the communal pool and play areas.

Bank Repossession

This is a bank repossession which means depending on your personal circumstances you could get up to 100% mortgage. Please remember you will always need to put down approximately 10 – 12% in cash for taxes, land registry, notary and legal fees. The result will be ownership of a beautiful family home. For the first few months the bank is looking for bids above asking price which could mean the final price is above listed price. On the other hand, if they don’t get those bids they may accept bids lower than asking price. But be prepared!

Light Reforms recommended

The property is a little tired and could benefit from a light makeover but you can definitely live in the property while doing this.

Location Istan

Situated at the lower end of Istan near the Concepcion Reservoir, this family home is ideally located to feel both connected with the buzz of the coast and to be close to the beautiful fauna and flora of El Coto. Surrounded by mountain views and rambling and cycling routes, Istan attracts walkers, bird watchers and those seeking to disconnect from the pleasures and pursuits of the beaches and clubs around Puerto Banus and Marbella. The beaches are 15 minutes away by car.

Estacion Gaucin Casa Rural

Estacion Gaucin Ideal Retreats Casa Rural

Reforms Done – Price Correction. 325,000€

Three separate properties located on a plot of land of approximately 1100 m2. There are two houses, both with wonderful sitting rooms and kitchens and a third, smaller, property which can be used for a couple or a single person. In total there are 6 bedrooms and five bathrooms, 2 with baths. There is also an area dedicated to workshops where you can hold yoga or writing retreats and courses, for example. It is a large room with many possibilities.

As you can see from the photos, it has a beautiful eclectic style slightly reminiscent of Gaudi, with the artisan walls and slightly fairy-tale feel. Built in 2004, and currently operating as a rural tourism business. The properties are already registered as a ‘Casa Rural’ which is a requirement in Andalusia when rural accommodation is rented out short term.

Investment Opportunity

If you run activities, from kayaking to bird watching, to dedicated retreats, this is worth viewing. Visitors can land in Gibraltar, get a taxi to the train station in San Roque – La Linea and then be at the property in ten minutes. True, there are very few trains, between two and four per day depending on season, but ideal for travellers and explorers.

Location: Estación Gaucín

Situated five minutes from Gaucín train station in the Guadiaro Valley below the famous hill-top white village of Gaucín. Known correctly as Colmenar de Cortes de la Frontera, but informally as Estacion de Gaucin. This is a wonderful area, bordering the Campo de Gibraltar and Serrania de Ronda and close to many wonderful walks.  The location lends itself quite perfectly to writing or yoga retreats for example. The plot is a stone’s throw from the wonderful Guadiaro river. Even in the height of summer there is a good flow of water, coming as it does from the impressive Vulture Canyon, 2 km higher up towards Ronda, which has waterfalls of around 100m deep.

At only 325,000€ why not take a whirl and see if this is the rural setting and business opportunity that you have been looking for?
