We are pleased to present el Figueral, a set of 2 old natural stone buildings to be renovated. Please note that each of the buildings can be purchased separately: the farmhouse on the upper part of the property sells for 143,000 euros, and the lower one for 67,000 euros. The whole property sells for 199.500€.
El Figueral is located near the small village of Tarbena, a village in the mountains of the province of Alicante, near the Coll de Rates, which delivers absolutely magnificent views of the surrounding peaks and, in the distance, the sea. This pretty little village consists of some 800 inhabitants and has small shops, bars and restaurants. The small town of Callosa d'En Sarria is about 15 minutes away by car and has all the necessary shops and supermarkets. And add another 20 minutes to find yourself on the beaches of the Costa Blanca. The airport is approximately 1 hour away.
The road from the coast to the property is a real treat for the eyes.
El Figueral is located on the edge of a small tarmac road, on a steep slope made up of a series of terraces. The farmhouse is located a few terraces under the road, the path that descends to it has been stabilised, but the access is still steep. You will arrive on the terrace where the building is located. The views are simply breathtaking and unremovable. The farmhouse is of good size and retains all its charm of past time. There are several entrances: the main one on the south façade and one on each of the east and west façades. The back of the building, on its east side, has a beautiful covered terrace leading to the kitchen. An old stone portico faces you with, on its side, access to the old rainwater tank. Upstairs, you will discover 2 rooms that can be used as an en-suite bedrooms. On the ground floor and in its centre, a large living room opens-up on the 2 levels and on its west side, another room with its bread oven and its separate entrance. Make no mistake, the farmhouse needs to be completely renovated: installations (water and electricity), internal distribution, window frames, etc... everything needs to be reviewed and updated. The immediate advantage of this old farmhouse: it is of course connected to the water and electricity distribution network.
Further below from this farmhouse, you will discover a second construction in local natural stones, the casita of El Figueral (which can also be bought separately), which offers you the choice of making it as a guest house for your friends and family. Also in need of complete renovation. Access to the casita is via a separate path, with its entrance at a lower point on the road. The path needs to be improved to allow vehicle access. If you like the El Figueral ensemble, it would be advisable to create a footpath to connect the two buildings.
There are not many properties for sale in their "juice" that offer you that special charm and absolutely magnificent views. If you are looking for the tranquillity and typical life of an inland village in the province of Alicante, and are passionate about renovation, this property is an exception.
We believe that the price is completely negotiable.
