For sale direct from the owners!

Excellent opportunity for rural B&B, country retreat or large family home.  The large main house was built around 1900 and was a working farm.  It was completely renovated by previous owners in 2004.  The house and land is classed as ‘rustica’ and therefore no further building work can be added to the property.

Here is a video created to give you a better idea of the property…

The house has seven bedrooms.  Two bedrooms are downstairs with one currently used as a storeroom.  Work is being undertaken to add a further doorway from the outside fly free area to the store room, enabling further guest accommodation of 5 bedrooms upstairs to be completely

separate from the owner’s accommodation when needed.  This could increase the guest capacity up to 18.

The centre piece of the house is the impressive lounge area and beautiful fireplace and arches which make a stunning feature.    The lovely red tiles are perfect in the summer months when temperatures can hit 40 degrees.   Two ceiling fans have recently been added making this a wonderfully cool room.    The room is so large it can have dual purposes as lounge and diner and is perfect for entertaining.

Off of the lounge area is the family bathroom with shower, bath, bidet, sink and toilet and excellent water pressure.   Upstairs is a further smaller bathroom with bath and shower.  Each bathroom has their own separate water heater with excellent pressure.

Work will be taking place replace the old windows with new double glazed windows, with flyscreen’s.  A new fire is also being added along with heaters for those chilly nights during the winter months, plus a new double glazed kitchen door.

The large kitchen is used for personal use and for catering when guests stay on half board basis.   There is an electric oven and gas hob.   There is plenty of space for extra units to be installed as well as a double fridge freezer if required.    The kitchen window enjoys beautiful views onto the rambla and the village of Urcal down to the coast at San Juan.

Outside of the front door is a private garden area with a couple of orange trees and other shrubs and laid to gravel with a tiled pathway and terrace and steps down to the lower level.   This area is fenced for privacy and securing the owner’s dogs away from guests.  Access to the new car port can be reached via separate stairs.

On this lower level are the two independent apartments.  One apartment can sleep up to 5 people with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, a kitchenette and lounge area.   Cookers were in place but removed but these could easily be replaced again to make great self-catering apartments.   The other one bedroom apartment can sleep up to 3.  Each apartment has a sofa bed in the lounge area.   (The apartment furniture is not part of the sale but there is room for negotiation).  Both apartments have their own Wi-Fi that enable the TV’s to work showing English and Spanish channels.   The apartments also have a separate water and electricity meters, enabling longer term rentals, which previous owners have used them for.  The apartments have been let via AirBnb and HomeAway, which is very popular with the Spanish.

Underneath the house, below the kitchen, is a large workshop with lights and electricity that currently houses 7 scooters plus tools.

Leading out from the kitchen you will find a brand new fly-screened area with a solid roof (installed January 2017) perfect for dining al fresco. Beyond the fly-screen is the plunge pool, perfect for cooling down when temperatures soar in June and July. The area is totally private and looks out onto panoramic views.    The cost to increase the pool size would be from 14,000 to 16,000 euros and will need planning permission.

The main house and apartments are totally secured by a large wall and electric gate (installed by owners December 2016).  The house is semi-detached but not that you would know there were any neighbours as there is a large wall making it completely private.

Beyond the main house is further land, currently unfenced with many almond, olive, pomegranate and orange trees.  Previous owners have installed irrigation to the fruit trees and the area is perfect for a vegetable patch.  The Spanish neighbour has an impressive olive orchard and grows an abundance of vegetables.

The village of Urcal is a 5 minute walk or 2 minute drive.  It has 2 bars/restaurants run by Spanish owners who are very welcoming.  There is also a mini supermarket, a doctors, pharmacy and primary school

The local town of Huercal-Overa is just a 12 minute drive where you will find the thriving Monday and Thursday morning markets full of fresh local produce, the regional hospital of La Inmacualda, plus many banks, supermarkets, DIY, vets etc.

The location is perfect as it is just a 5 minute drive to the A7/E15 motorway where you can be in the large town of Lorca, perfect for shopping or taking in a movie, in 20 minutes. The airports of Almeria and Murcia (Corvera – new 2018) are an hour away and Alicante is 1 hour and 45 minutes. The beaches of the popular resort of Mojacar is under an hour away and San Juan de los Terreros is 35 minutes drive which has some beautiful little coves and sandy beaches.
