4 Bed with Pool & 5,000m2 in Caudete Only 89995€ (Ref. PV8002)
4 Bed Country House with Pool & 5,000m2 of Land Only 89,995€
The house has no electricity supply and is currently being serviced by a generator. A solar system equivalent to an electric supply would cost in the region of 5,000€, however, this would mean a future without electricity bills. The owners have reduced the price from 110,000€ to 99,995€ to accommodate a solar system and now it has been reduced further to a crazy price of 89,995€
Big country house with 4 large bedrooms in a great location between Villena and Caudete with great access.
There is a large covered terrace at the front of the property which offers shade from the heat of the hot summer months and provides an excellent area for outside dining and there are more exterior dining areas in the gardens.
The swimming pool needs attention as it was originally a water deposit. It can be tiled or simply painted with the appropriate paint that is available in every hardware store.
Inside the property is a large lounge/diner with a big feature log burning fireplace. A decent kitchen with fitted units, four bedrooms and a bathroom.
At the side of the house are steps leading up to a massive roof terrace which is not overlooked and affords superb views across the countryside. Also, in the land is a "trastero" or storage house which is just about large enough to make into extra accommodation but is perfect to use in the same way as you would a shed in the UK. There is also an outdoor BBQ area with a sink and good sized kennels.
The immediate area around the house and gardens are fenced and there is a further 4,000m2 of land suitable for olive or almond trees. There is a neighbour in the land behind the house but he is usually only there at weekends, he is a really lovely guy who keeps an eye on the house although it is in a very safe and tranquil area.
Solar systems are much more affordable than ever before and no electricity bills. There are two randomly chosen from a Spanish online store in the photos section of the property details that would be perfect and both have six panels that can be roof mounted. There is an option for installation if you don´t feel up to the job. It used to be that Solar cost around 10,000€ for a system sufficient to run a property but those days have changed and now you can be looking at around half of that price. The beauty is that a consideration of around 10,000 is prenegotiated with the vendors and reflected in the price of the property
The first Brits to settle in the town date back to 1707 when it was home to the troops.

The old town has a beautiful network of streets of Muslim and Christian origin that lead up to the remains of the castle. Next to the Castle is the Parochial Church of Santa Catalina, a mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles.
