A large cortijo in need of complete renovation-rebuild, the property has wonderful views of the Sierra Nevada and Orgiva Valley and is located next to the river. The property currently has all mains services connected. There is a stable block with four or five stables for horses. This is a great opportunity as under current planning laws its difficult if not impossible to obtain permission to build 150m2. The land is flat, spread over three terraces, it is all fenced and gated. A great project to create your new home in the sun.
Mains water, electricity are connected. Acequia (irrigation) rights. Internet is available from several local suppliers.
It takes you 12 minutes by car to get to Orgiva, the nearest town. You’ll find banks, cash machines, post office, various supermarkets, numerous bars & restaurants, 3 health shops, a police station, all schools and 24 h medical services.
Orgiva has developed into a small centre of alternative culture, combining old Spanish tradition with the ecological lifestyle of a young foreign community.
Driving 45 minutes along a beautiful mountain road takes you to Salobreña, the nearest beach of the Costa Tropical.
Granada is a 60 minutes’ drive away. Another 30 minutes take you to the ski resort of Sierra Nevada. Skiing is possible between December and May. The highest lifts take you up to 3.400 metres and from there one enjoys unforgettable views of Granada and right across the Med to Africa.
The Moors lived until the end of the 16th century in the Alpujarras. We not only still use their water channels and water deposits, but their original arabic names too. A proposal has recently been submitted to declare the Alpujarras a UNESCO world heritage site.
Hiking is pure pleasure here. It takes a 20 minute car drive to reach the borders of the National Park of Sierra Nevada. You can watch eagles circle in the blue skies, see ibexes fearlessly cross the cliffs above you and feel part of the magnificence of untouched nature all around.
