Getting a foothold in Spain at present is not easy, things have changed from when you could pick up country properties at a bargain unless you want to live in the middle of nowhere and run everything off a generator and wait for the water to be delivered. You will probably also need a very good friend who has a building company.
This is an opportunity to own a really cute property that is for the most part a traditional cave house. Cave houses I think are fabulous because they have the advantage of staying cool in the summer and heat up easily in the winter months and because they can easily look like a boutique hotel accommodation with some elbow grease and a trip to Ikea.
What this property has that very few Cave houses do are mains electricity and water and really good internet strength is available for 25€ per month, also, this property is in Jumilla one of the finest wine regions in Spain, Jumilla wine is very popular with the Americans who rate it highly against their Californian equivalents, high praise indeed.
This quaint little cave house is only 5 minutes drive from the prosperous town of Pinoso. The house has 3 bedrooms, one of which is a double bedroom, a small kitchen with a gas stove,1 bathroom, a lounge/dining room with a log burner for the winter and a small pantry. The property has just been rewired and represents great value. When I say "small kitchen" I suggest you don´t bring a cat to swing because in typical Spanish fashion the cooking is mainly done outside on the BBQ whilst the house fills with the gorgeous aromas of the meats sizzling away.
Outside there is a really good sized patio area that so much more can be made of and a garage that has been converted into another room which is being used as a storage/laundry room at this present time but could be converted into another bedroom.
The property includes a small piece of land to the side of the house as well with a few almond trees, imagine relaxing on the terrace with a chilled glass of wine from one of the many local bodegas whilst cracking open your own almonds waiting for the food on the BBQ to be ready.
