The lounge and one of the rooms also have a collapsed roof. This is a one level dwelling. The third house is the largest with four rooms and centre courtyard. Part of this house was used as a corral and house has some original stone features. The roof has not collapsed on this property. This dwelling could be reformed into a nice traditional village home with enough scope to have a real authentic Andalucain lifestyle. All three properties have their own private entrance and attached to one another. You could open them up so that the function as one home or keep them as separate dwellings with the potential of generating extra income by having one or two of the properties rented, or advertised on AIRBNB with the description of experiencing authentic rural Andalucian living.

The village is a 2-minute drive to a larger village, here you will find a small supermarket and other amenities including some nice bars/restaurants.

The village is friendly and the immediate neighbours are a Spanish family, retired Spanish gentleman and a British retired couple.
The house is also a short drive to the village of Chirivel where many amenities are available including doctors, chemist, supermarket, shops and restaurants and for all other amenities for example schools you would need to travel slightly further to the historical towns of Velez Rubio or Velez Blanco.
