The area the village is located in, is a green landscape located on the North Eastern side of the Filabres mountain range and West of Albanchez is the Sierra de Baza Natural Park (not the barren landscape Almeria is mostly associated with). The route to Albanchez village has been marked on maps as, ‘a route of scenic beauty’. It is also an area loved by nature enthusiasts, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Albanchez pueblo has retained its traditional character with only the outskirts of the village expanding. Outside the village there are several urbanisations that comprise villas with swimming pools but living in the traditional part of the pueblo gives buyers (as it has the current owners) a chance to integrate into local village life.
Being a traditional village property, legal paperwork is not a problem
As the house has an historic ‘Urban’ classification, there is no need for buyers to have any concerns over paperwork… Almeria and the general area has seen a lot of ‘irregular’ construction but this does not apply to the old part of the village.
The owner offers all potential buyers a PDF document of all legal documentation relating to the property.
With recent changes to land laws, this property has been confirmed as being 100% legal by the town hall at Albanchez.
