Spacious 2 bed village house with private walled garden in Competa with unobstructed mountain views.

Price: £90,000

Living Area:88 m²
Land:133 m²

PRICE REDUCTION..........SWAP/SELL my garden home in the very pretty 'Moorish' and traditional whitewashed Spanish mountain village/small town of Competa, on the Costa del Sol, Malaga. A corner that is still  'Hidden Spain'. This is real Spain but with all the modern facilities of a small town. A 5 minute stroll from my home brings you to the bustling and busy centre of the village with its shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants of all kinds,  Internet shops, hardware, English food shops and suppliers, Health Centre with emergency callouts at the weekend with ambulance service who are also english speaking, the Town Hall, schools, Dentist, Public swimming pool (undercover also)  banks. etc.  and buses to the coast and Malaga Airport. There is so much here to get involved, or not, in.   A historic, moorish design village  sympathetic to Spanish traditions,  friendly, with traditional fiestas in its Plazas where all nationalities mix well and freely with the Spanish locals in their daily activities and in their fun. There are lots of local activities set up by the Spanish Town Hall for their foreign residents including learning Spanish! There are many other activities organised by ex-pats, it is a very active small town  really...The noisy,  busy and more expensive Costas are just 20 mins. away, Torrox Costa the closest, with its beautiful beaches and with Nerja 10 minutes further with its wonderful international shops and also cove beaches. Malaga airport is a hour away from my home. 

My home was formerly a very large town house situated on the edge of Competa.  It is semi detached and a corner property with wonderful vistas all around from its circular balcony. I had the property renovated in 2004 into two large, spacious apartments with separate title deeds. I sold the upper apartment many years ago and  I lived happily in the spacious garden apartment until I returned to the UK to help with care of my elderly mother in late 2010  and now use the property as a rare holiday home. I have a maintenance team care for the interior and the garden.The walled garden has less shrubs now, but 2 lemon trees, hibiscus, geraniums, oleander and jasmine survive!  There is no house beyond or in front of mine.  It overlooks a small park below and there are just lovely countryside and village views.  The property itself has two double bedrooms (formerly three before renovation to open plan) separate Dining Room, Kitchen, full 4 piece bathroom and spacious Lounge.  It is bright, airy and sunny all day.  Metal white shutters cover the windows with outer security grills.  The living  space is 88 sq. metres.  There is good storage area running alongside the house which could provide a 2nd bathroom/shower room or 3rd bedroom. In 2012 a redecoration program was carried out internally. There is some double glazing.

This corner property has a walled and semi circular garden with full balcony, is 95 sq. metres and would accommodate a plunge pool.  It could also be totally terraced to hold sail covers and loungers for the all day sun.  There is parking, a landline and satellite tv.  It is being sold mainly unfurnished.    Full legal title deeds and all documentation are with my Spanish Lawyer, Land registry, rates, water, and electric are up to date for easy processing and the property is mortgage and debt free.  The mandatory Energy Certificate has also been completed.  This property is Freehold.  There are NO maintenance monthly charges involved whatsoever. The property can be mortgaged.


Price: £90,000

Looking to swap for: I WOULD SWAP/SELL my spanish home for any kind of small lock up and go holiday home, still in Spain,  preferably on the East coast from Malaga Airport.  Other locations also considered but close to an airport or with a good regular bus service there. If an apartment, low community charges! I am open to any offer including a small property in the south of the UK, near the sea. It could be a well maintained holiday park home/Lodge in a nice tranquil location with good recommended owners. I would also consider a residential park home also on the south coast of the UK.  I could add further finance for the right property and location.
