San Pablo Large Property to Reform
This is a big house with large bedrooms and kitchen. It has an outdoor bathroom which can easily be incorporated into the main part of the house by extending out. One of the most exciting parts of this property are the outhouses left untouched for decades. Also, the upstairs has had an asbestos roof slapped on to make it water tight – which it is – but this whole floor can be completely overhauled. It needs a bathroom and more clearly defined rooms up here, being largely a blank canvas. The property is on the market for 120,000€ and will need at least 45,000€ added for reform. Even so, you should end up with a handsome profit.
Potential for 2 Properties
It’s a substantial property with some two thirds undeveloped. The key word for this residential property, without doubt, is ‘potential’. There is a solid foundation in place and a habitable living area. But much work is needed to create what could be a hacienda type property. Spectacular views over the Serrania de Ronda, visible from the large terrace at the back of the house.
You come into a large passage with stairwell and bedrooms left and right. Then there is a sitting room area which you walk through to get to the kitchen and pantry. There is an expansive feel to these rooms and it would require very little to make them comfortable and habitable whilst reforming the rest of the property and garden area.
This includes the bathroom and various buildings from old stable, to antiquated kitchen complete with fireplace, to chicken coop, to pigeon loft. It is quite a large space for an urban property in San Pablo and as it is all roofed it should technically be possible to apply for minor reform work whilst adding real value. There is independent access from the back to another road. A feasibility study should determine the viability of dividing this home into 2 properties or creating an inner courtyard with rooms coming off it designed for the Air BnB / booking.com short term rentals. There is also an outdoor stairway leading to the first floor and its extravagant terrace.
As mentioned, it has a large terrace which takes up about a third of the upstairs. If the inner courtyard theme is developed, this could extend and wrap around the generous border of the garden space. The indoors has partitioned rooms but little else and can be transformed with very little imagination into something quite charming. There is a Berber style kitchen with two circles for charcoal which can be adapted or reformed as you think best.
