Finca La Umbria – Off-Grid Smallholding – Ideal For Permaculture Project / Organic Gardening / Leisure Retreat Etc.
FOR SALE FOR THE THIRD TIME DUE TO TIMEWASTERS AND DREAMERS!
This land has so much potential for the right person / family or a few friends or families buying it together, for an off-grid smallholding / permaculture project / holiday / leisure / weekend retreat etc.
Due to other commitments we’re looking to sell Finca La Umbría – our secluded smallholding of almost 4 Acres / 15,000 M2 of rustic land, just one hour from Málaga airport, in the Axarquia region of Southern Spain.
An important feature is that the land has a reliable spring / water source, which provides ample water all year round and has never been known to dry up.
It is very secluded and during the last eighteen years, that I’ve owned it, I’ve lived there regularly, with my family, in campers, caravans and a yurt.
About 10 years ago I built a one room wooden cabin, (6m x 4.5m) with no formal planning permission.
The local town hall / ayuntamiento is aware of this and they have never had a problem with it.
The cabin has 2 X 200 Watt solar panels for power, a woodburning cooker and there is a simple exterior detached wooden bathroom, which is fed from water pumped up from the spring, it has a sink, shower and a compost toilet.
There is also a block built outside kitchen area, which needs finishing.
There is a great phone / 4G signal over the entire plot, and you could work remotely from here with no problems
Although mostly sloped and terraced – the land offers two large flat areas – one of which is surrounded by olive trees, is very private and has the cabin on it and the other that is bigger (approximately 120 m2) with amazing, panoramic mountain views.
On the remainder of the land, which is steep in places; there are many olive and almond trees as well as a couple of carob trees – one of them massive.
Below the cabin is the spring and a pair of old stone-built water tanks and an extensive irrigation piping system.
On either side of the spring there are several old stone-walled terraces where orange, lemon, tangerine and níspero trees flourish – alongside a couple of big old avocado trees.
There are numerous places, by the spring, where you can grow vegetables etc.
In the past two families fed themselves from produce grown on this plot.
Access is via a kilometre long track. Most of which is regularly well maintained. Although a little steep in places, a van /camper can get in and out with no problem.
Although there are friendly small communities close by there are no near neighbours and it’s pretty much surrounded by avocado and mango plantations, lemon orchards and olive and almond trees.
The nearest town, Comares, is 10 -15 minutes away and offers 4 bars, 2 hotels, a supermarket and a tobacconist. Whilst the coast and the much bigger market town of Velez Malaga is 30-40 minutes away.
I have registered deeds for the land and all the taxes have been paid.
I have recently had the land professionally surveyed and all the boundaries have been marked out and updated at the land registry.
