2 Small Spanish Terraced Cottages in Good Location 15 mins Beach, Malaga City

Price: 75,950€

Living Area:63 m²
Land:30 m²

UNBEATABLE LOCATION!- only one property available now -the 2 bed cottage. BARGAIN. JUST REDUCED to sell fast! Buy for just approx 44,000 Euros! - if you take over the small mortgage of just 181 Euros a month, or buy outright for only 75,950 Euros.  COSTA DEL SOL. Nr. Cartama.

Escape the grey Uk skies and endless rain! Move here to the Sunny South of Spain! -With endless blue Skies, warm climate all year round, and almost continual sunshine! (Over 325 days a year, and up to 11 hours sun a day!). Where costs of living are also extremely low, and its very cheap to eat out too.

2 bed Fully renovated cottage situated in the desirable area  of the Lower Guadalhorce Valley, near Malaga (known as valley of the sun and orange blossom!) Very near and accessible to the coast, but away from the crowds and noise!  And as it is so near the coast it does not suffer the excessive extremes of temperature that you will experience further inland!

Idea holiday home, permanent living, or just a good investment! - as the price of Costa del Sol properties is rising and and is predicted to rise again substantially, so this property in this amazing location, should be a really good investment for the future!

It is end -corner terraced on the edge of the hamlet in peaceful countryside with orange and lemon groves right outside on both sides of the house. It is fully renovated to English standards. In an excellent location with lovely country and mountain views and river walks.

63m2 Built. 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, lounge and kitchen. bordering citrus groves, with lovely views across the valley. Situated in pretty, peaceful hamlet in the countryside, near Cartama, but is also very close to major roads and only 10-15 mins from the airport, Malaga city, beaches and all the facilities of the Costa del Sol.

Fully renovated to English standards, approx 5 years ago. It was fully re-wired, re-plumbed, English Sealed unit UPVC double-glazing fitted throughout with a Solid oak fitted English Hygena kitchen, Heating/Air Con.upstairs and down.

Very cheap to maintain. Property taxes approx 50 euros Annually, and unlike apartments on the coast or in new urbanisations, there are NO COMMUNITY CHARGES  or Maintenance fees are payable here ! 

All mains services connected. Built on URBAN land. Fully Registered in both Property Registries. Fully Legal and Ready to move in.All property deeds are available.

Valued at 145,000 Euros a few years ago, but now hugely reduced due to job loss and relocation, for quick sale, only 75,950 Euros

The property has a small mortgage on it which can be taken over by the new owner (agreed in principle with the bank ), The mortgage outstanding is currently approx 32,000 Euros total outstanding,  approx 180 Euros a month,(It is a repayment mortgage so the repayments go down every year). so if you were to take over the mortgage(subject to the bank's agreement),  then you can buy this property for just approx 44,000 Euros

or would consider swopping for a property of similar value to the balance of 44,000 in Ireland.

It's located in a very quiet hamlet which is a cul-de-sac, so there is no passing traffic, so it's very safe for children and pets outside and there are lovely walks through the orange and lemon groves in front of the property with views of the mountains and river.

As it's a registered Urban property, it can legally be extended upwards another storey, plus a roof terrace added, if desired. The views from this would be amazing, and of the whole valley! There is also plenty of space to park cars immediately outside the property, either on the road, or on adjacent land (unlike many Spanish village properties where parking is often a problem!)

Note, although the property has no land of its own, if a garden area is required, there is a small area of approx 100m2 of land adjacent to the property, that was originally the garden, and is available to use without charge, or if a contract is required, can be rented for a nomianal amount long term/permanently from the previous owner, as it unfortunately cannot be sold -as it has no legal title deeds! It has an old block built shed on it too.

The hamlet has a charming rustic Spanish flamenco bar/restaurant which is very popular, and also a kiosk which sells, crisps, beer etc. It is also served by mobile vans which sell a variety of fresh food products daily. It is also on a bus route. and school buses also come daily. All the neighbours are very friendly and helpful.

It is only 2.5km, approx 1.5 miles, from Cartama which provides all the facilities of a town, Supermarkets (including Lidls) many shops, stores, bars (including an English Bar) a great medical centre, plus a Brand new hospital, variety of restaurants, parks, gyms, public swimming pools, and a large new Sports city with a large football stadium, athletics track, tennis courts, large indoor Sports Hall etc. There are also beautiful walks in the lemon groves by river, in front of the house, and also mountain walks and horse-riding facilities nearby. It is also a very popular area for cycling too.

Low cost of living, and very cheap to eat out, the average cost of a 3 course meal (Menu of the day, with a variety of choices of freshly prepared food) is only around 7.50 Euros, including a drink and usually bread too! Or for a snack, a beer with a tapa, for around 2 Euros. Malaga is also renowned for the quality and variety of it's wonderful and delicious fish dishes too!

Move in ready. All genuine enquiries welcomed, please dont hesitate to contact me..

Please note: Buyer / or swapper will be responsible for paying the costs of the Transfer of Title of the property and all associated costs,as is the normal procedure. 

Price: 75,950€

Looking to swap for: Any type of property considered, in Ireland (as long as it's not a caravan or mobile home!) But would prefer similar type of cottagey property if possible!  Any  any part of Ireland considered.  House or cottage preferred, but might consider a flat as long as it's Freehold, depending on location.  I don't mind something that is in need of some renovation or modernisation.

ONLY IRELAND CONSIDERED, or Northern Ireland or possibly the Uk,  so please NO offers of property anywhere else!

 Costa del Sol prices are rising, and are predicted to rise again substantially, so this property should be a good investment for the future.  I'd keep it if I had the money and sell when the prices have gone back up again...

Look forward to hearing from you...

This property is for sale or permanent swap through the owner.
