484m2 original townhouse on four floors to renovate – ideal for conversion into a rural bed and breakfast or guest house – estimated 10 ensuite bedrooms possible – 80m2 garden and rear patio, space for a pool  UNDER OFFER

Located in the heart of the small country town of Jayena, close to beautiful Lake Bermejales and at the centre of some of the most spectacular countryside and natural parkland in the whole of Andalusia, this striking town house was once the home of the biggest local landlord in the area, used over many decades for processing and bottling the local olive oil, and now up for sale for an absolute bargain price!

This casona (large house) is in very good condition and was last recorded as having been restored in 1940.  It could be converted into a bed and breakfast, guesthouse or small hotel!  It consists of three floors of around 188m2 each, plus a basement, and a delightful look-out tower on the very top, which, if opened up, or glassed in, would make a wonderful place to contemplate the stunning views all around!

A large side front door leads into a hallway with a marble staircase with wooden bannister leading right up to the very top floor of the house, and located in the centre of the house.  At each floor, on either side of the hallway are doors to the other rooms.  To the front of the house is a walled garden or approximately 40m2, which, if converted into a guest house, would make a wonderful garden to offer tables and chairs for the guests to have their breakfast or meals in the warm months, and there is space here for a small pool.  To the rear of the house is a rear patio area, big enough for a jacuzzi or splash pool, or for further outside seating.  The patio could be enclosed with a glass or transparent roof if required too.

There are endless possibilities with this delightful house.  For example the ground floor could be converted into a communal living room/libary, with a dining room, kitchens, etc, with the following two floors consisting of ensuite bedrooms,a nd the top floor either more accommodation, or something different, such as a large function room, with access to the lookout tower.

This house needs complete renovation, and the roof is currently being repaired (cost around 20,000 Euros will be passed on as part of the renovation costs), but the structure and some of the original floors are in reasonable condition, and there are many features that are good condition, such as original double wooden doors and windows with shutters, stunning original floor tiling, and wooden beams.

The highly competitive price of this lovely old house makes it more affordable for someone with energy, imagination and enthusiasm to renovate and possibly convert into a hotel or tourist accommodation.  A good renovation budget is required.

This area is ideal for alternative tourism such as:

– art, painting and photography
– yoga and health retreats
– walking, trekking and rambling (national parkland all around)
– birdwatching and nature watching
– cycling and quad biking
