      Saw this on Mark’s property guide. I would say it is a good price for the area. Of course impossible to say without seeing location but I do know the general area. Knock it down to 395,000 and I would say it is a steal 🙂

      It does look a lot nicer and well maintained than many for the money, something different to the standard white villas everywhere 😉 In the 2nd photo, do you think that’s another villa immediately behind this one or something belonging to it? 🙄

      Well, you never know. Seeing as some of posters say they are selling like hot cakes I may start up a kitchen sink business 😆 😆

      Well, if you’ve been grooming us it’s certainly worked. Must be a bargain if you say so 😉

      Talking of good deals, this is one in my opinion:

      It belongs to some friends of mine, and I’ve been to stay there many times. It’s high spec in excellent condition in a wonderful location, and I know there is some flexibility on the price.

      Not my style at all, more a traditionalist 😀 I think the pool area is an awful slab of concrete. Would be expensive to heat in winter. Location looks excellent.

      Love that sort of design but was it comfortable to live in?

      You lot have strange taste…looks like a Council building or health centre to me 😆 Doesn’t have the appearance of ever been lived in!

      Sorry Mark and your friends but I agree with Katy. I just see slabs of concrete. I like the older style cortijos.

      Is there something wrong with us because we think our next project might be to build a Spanish Cortijo style house? Are we cracking up, we’re serious too, can anyone help us? 😯 😕 🙄 8)

      Those designs are interesting to look at, but they are all about clean lines, geometry, etc. Unless you are able to stick to the minimalist lifestyle the effect is soon lost when you actually live there, and it’s not as if you can readily paint the place a different colour or change the furniture if you get bored of it.

      No point in arguing about tastes thank God, but what do you want, socks on the washing line and stains on the carpet? It has hardly ever been lived in, which is one of it’s selling points.

      Maybe you’re bipolar 😉

      When you say a Spanish Cortijo style house, do you mean in Spain?

      eg. I was thinking of some fancy oil/herbs/wine in the kitchen. Anything to make it not look like a computer mock-up 😆

      Up one minute down the next, manic depressive, am I, aren’t I, Spanish property up, Spanish property down? Not me Mark, I’m happy every day 😉 😛

      We’ve harboured this idea of building or converting a property, possibly single storey, into a cortijo style property, but in the UK, it’s more the shape and style rather than totally Spanish which might look out of place. Do like the thin Spanish bricks for end pillars etc. We like the idea of buying either a rectangular boring bungalow, or one with an L shape, so it ends up with an ‘L’ shape both ends to create a central courtyard effect, and probably glazing in the courtyard with vaulted glass ceiling. We could grow citrus fruits and other Med. type plants inside, maybe a water feature too. Ground floor heating with air/ground source heat pump, and only 2-3 solar hot water panels which we already use in the UK which work well.

      Trouble is finding the right plot, setting, views from proposed courtyard, or knockdown/conversion type in the South of England. It’s a bit of a dream but we’re looking 🙄

      Already have the stocks of Rioja, erbs, and oils katy 😉 😆
