Who would be attracted to purchase this property:
♦ Someone who wants to keep a couple of horses, ponies or maybe even alpacas etc. Hacking out on horseback is amazing with spectacular views. The selection of agricultural tracks to explore on horseback in the area are extensive.
♦ Perhaps, Alpujarran living is very attractive to you. However, with this property… having access off tarmac, a beautiful swimming pool, very fast Internet speed, plus mains water, makes living in the Alpujarras more comfortable and convenient than is common.
♦ Those who prefer to live off grid and use solar with battery storage who prefer to have modern day conveniences to complement the off-grid living!
♦ If you want a property of your own and independent accommodation for visiting friends and family.
♦ A small tourism business, by simply applying for a rural tourism licence to officially holiday let the lower ground floor apartment.
♦ Because of the size of the land and the recent changes to Andalucian Land Law, building an additional property is very viable and possibly a very attractive proposition.
♦ Apply for permission to build a tourism project of several holiday cottages on the land. Maybe a little eco tourism village? Andalucian Land Law would allow this and the local town hall would be very receptive to a project of this kind. Having access directly off tarmac makes this an easier proposition.
