I am selling my house in Spain, which is located in the pretty white washed village of Castillo de Locubin, in the province of Jaen, Andalucía, Southern Spain; just 90 minutes from Malaga airport and 45 minutes from Granada airport. The house is in a condition to move in straight away and is offered chain free.
I am selling this property considerably lower than market value for a quick sale. Hence, only very close offers will be considered. In a bouyant property market this property would be worth more than double the advertised price, making it a good long term investment.
If you are looking for tranquility within a rural setting, with sunny skies coupled with a mountain backdrop and the chance to discover inland/rural Spain, then this property will be of interest to you.
The house is a 3 storey property which has been renovated to a high standard and comprises, 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 singles), 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite to master with walk-in shower, 1 family sized bathroom with bath and shower over), modern fitted kitchen with integrated oven and digital hobs, storage cupboard, decked patio, outhouse which can be used as a study, utility room or for further storage space, wooden floors and original wood beams.
You can fit a small table and chair set on the patio to enjoy alfresco dining or sitting out reading/relaxing in the sun.
Please note that the garage in the photo does not belong to the property. There is ample street parking available in front of/outside the property.
I have attached a floor plan (own created) to give an idea of the layout and have detailed approximate room measurements below. The property is seemingly small on the outside, but offers ample amount of space on the inside.
Living area – 2.6m x 2.9m
Dining room – 2.5m x 3.5m
Kitchen – 1.4m x 3.5m
Master bedroom – 2.5m x 4.2m
Bedroom 2 – 2.5m x 3.8m
Bedroom 3 – 2.5m x 3.8m
En-suite bathroom – 1.4m x 1.9m
Main bathroom – 2.6m x 3.5m
Patio – 1.2m x 2.6m
Outhouse/storage – 2.5m x 2.8m
The house is situated on one of the most sought after streets in the village with all amenities within walking distance of the property, such as supermarkets, banks, schools, newsagent, cafes, chemist, doctor, optician, mechanic etc. You do not need a car to get around the village however you will need a car to get to the property from either Granada airport which is about 45 minutes away or Malaga airport which is about 90 minutes away. It is also located at just 10 minutes drive from Alcala la Real, which is a larger town with all amenities including English owned establishments.
Castillo de Locubin is a very friendly village with mostly Spanish residents. It is famous for olives and is host to the annual cherry fair in June, which brings a number of tourists to the area. There is a pretty square in the centre of the village where there is a children’s playground, an open-air restaurant during the summer and regular market. There is also an open-air swimming pool in the village (open during summer).
The house offers a great opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of city living, to perfect your Spanish and is also ideally located for exploring the neighbouring provinces of Cordoba and Granada (ski slopes).

This property has been paid for outright, so there is no outstanding mortgage.
There are currently no outstanding bills against the property. Any outstanding bills (council tax, water, community fees etc) will be cleared before transferred to new owner.
All property documentation (including renovation licence) is in my possession.
You will need to arrange to have the water and electricity reconnected/switched on (all piping/wiring is already in place).
In terms of taxes you can expect to pay no more than 200 EUR a year (approximate).
Community fees include charges for water and rubbish collection. Billed every trimester. Charges will depend on usage.
As I am selling the property directly, you will not be liable for any estate agency fees. You will however be responsible for your solicitor fees and Notary fees.
To my current knowledge there is no major work required to be done on the property. There may be some minor work (e.g. replacing some roof tiles). Any minor work is to be carried out by the buyer.
How long have I owned the property? – Since 2007
When was the property built? – Unknown
Does the property have rental potential? – The property is more suited to long-term rentals rather than the holiday rental market. There are a number of local estate agents (in Alcala la Real) who can assist in this area.
Is the property furnished? – The property is unfurnished
Is the property close to the beach? – The nearest beaches are in the coastal areas of Granada and Malaga (approx. 90 minutes from the property).
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that have not been answered in this listing.
Viewings can be arranged 7 days a week with prior notice. The keys are being held by a friend who runs a hotel/hostel in the area. The electricity has been disconnected/ switched off, so it will only be possible to do viewings during the daytime.
I have endeavoured to provide as full and accurate details as possible. However, buyers are advised to view/inspect the property for themselves and to instruct a solicitor to carry out the property sale on their behalf, as I will not take responsibility for any inaccuracies in the listing.
Serious enquiries/ buyers only please.
