Detached Village House La Barca
3 bed 1 bath detached village house in La Barca del Moreno district of Jimena de la Frontera. Approximately 80 m2 constructed, including garage, built on a plot of 1,180 m2.
Currently used as a weekend home it has been adapted with ramps and wide doors and as such is wheel chair friendly. This includes the swimming pool which has a hoist chair to facilitate getting in and out of the water. There is also an external bath room for use in summer to save having to go indoors.
As you come into the property by the front gate the swimming pool is to your left, facing the house, with the garage in between. There are also a couple of trees here, one of which is walnut. On the other side, to the right of the home, is a shipping container converted into a shed for gardening equipment.
The other side of the house has a lovely loggia along the whole length of the property. This is a wonderful covered terrace, slightly raised above the slightly sloping plot. The west of the garden has a fenced off area for hens and their lovely free range eggs. At present there are ducks, geese, hens and turkeys. Although these don’t come with the house, the fenced off area and coop do, and are a nice addition to this property.
The loggia looks out over the house’s small orchard of avocados, oranges, lemons and a wonderful array of herbs from mint to rosemary.
Potential to Reform
There is great potential here. The house is a bungalow type with sitting room complete with fully working fireplace. The bathroom has a full bath and 2 of the 3 bedrooms are big enough to be doubles. The kitchen is fully tiled and easy to maintain. The structure is solid and depending on how much you wanted to do, with just minor reforms you would have a nice home for yourself to use as a permanent dwelling or as relaxing holiday home. This area has been designated as a zone where further major planning permission will not be given. This is because of its location on the dehesa – woodlands and pasture.
Location La Barca, Jimena.
Situated about 10 minutes outside Estacion de Jimena. It is in the countryside, yet near to the station, shops and schools so that you would not feel cut off. A tranquil hamlet where you can unwind and recharge batteries.
