Description

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’.
