Incredible value for money: 374M2 of living accommodation which is astonishingly good value for money at just €262 per square meter (priced to encourage a quick sale)! There is also a good size courtyard and a 3rd level roof terrace that takes in an impressive view of the magnificent stone walls of the historic church the property adjoins.
Conveniently located in the heart of the old quarter of Loja without being amongst the steepest streets approaching the castle on the top of the hill, this property has everything needed for comfortable living within walking distance… bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, sporting facilities, parks, municipal swimming pool and the list goes on.
The accommodation: is over 4 floors with stairs and a lift that whisks a maximum of 4 people at a time up and down to each floor (except for the roof terrace). There are 5 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms in total.
A lot of the work has been done for you… New double glazing is fitted throughout, new white bathroom suites installed, a modern fully fitted kitchen installed to include granite work surfaces, beautiful ornate original floor tiles have been retained, a wood burning stove installed plus an electric stove effect heater and since the photos were taken, the property has been freshly painted white to the front of the property.
A private garage in the old quarter of Loja is a real advantage and this house has a good size garage with integral access into the entrance hallway of the house, making urban living easy.
The fabulous location of the property being in the old quarter of Loja lends the property to many uses… It could easily be turned into a boutique guest house, a B&B, a holiday rental or enjoyed as a large family home.
The very large outdoor municipal swimming pool & sports centre is walking or driving distance from the house across the Genil river (over the bridge). The sports complex is next to Loja’s hospital.
The large and impressive town of Loja is virtually on the crossroads of Andalucia so it is therefore the perfect location for visiting the major cities of Andalucia by car… Antequera 40 mins, Granada 45 mins, Malaga 1 hour, Cordoba 2 hours and Sevilla 2 hours 15 mins.
In brief, the house is laid out as follows:
Ground floor – entrance hallway, large cloakroom, integral garage, kitchen/dining room opening to the courtyard garden and a wine cellar.
First floor – there is a large landing area, access to 2 bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a large living room.
Second floor – the master bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom plus a dressing room, a landing area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Third floor – is a large open terrace with views over the adjacent church and a large store room.
The addition of a lift to avoid climbing the stairs if you do not wish to really separates this house from the majority of town houses set across many floors. No longer is it an issue for carrying shopping plus the elderly and disabled have comfortable access to all parts of house (except the roof terrace) without struggling up and down the stairs. The lift must equally make running a guest house or B&B over 4 floors much easier.
The layout of the house has a degree of flexibility to enable future owners to arrange the accommodation to suit – at the moment there are 5 bedrooms but this could be added to with the conversion of the top floor storage room. Equally, if bedrooms are not needed, these rooms could be used as a study/office, a snug, reading room or hobby room.
The town of Loja has a long and colourful history – it is the most westerly geographical area of the Granada Province. It has for many centuries been an important staging post on the main routes through Andalucía. Being located just off the A92 motorway, the access to Granada airport, and the cities of Granada, Malaga, Antequera, Sevilla, and Cordoba.
Occupied by the Moors for many centuries and retaken by the Christians during the re-conquest, there are many important sites to see around the town. Many of the churches date from the 16th Century and there are some real architectural gems to see in the centre.
The Sierra Nevada (skiing available from December through to April) can be reached in approximately 1.5hrs.
