A word from the realtor to the reader:
I have to say to all interested clients of this property, this is the dream location. It’s beautiful, private and rural. The old cortijos still maintain authentic, Andalusian details. Looking through the valley to Gibraltar and Africa, an opportunity to live and enjoy Casares. However, we must advise there are a few things one must know beforehand. The house is priced at 735.000€ non-negotiable. It needs reform, there are some minor structural issues, and the last leg of the legal path of the DAFO is at the cost of the new owner. As the property is located in the Natural Park of Casares, camping and extending buildings is prohibited.
This said this country house is the romantic dream of living in Andalusia! Please call us so we may expand on this information.
