Casa Cabritos

Casa Cabritos is a detached barn conversion set in 4000 square meters (about 1.25 acres) of freehold land.  There are 4 terraces all with olive trees, 3 of which have various fruit trees overlooking the valley and is about 150 meters from the centre of the village of Hinojares.   There are no immediate neighbours so it is nice and peaceful.

The barn was fully renovated to an extremely high standard 9 years ago by local professional builders and tradesmen.  Therefore all items such as windows, woodwork, electrics, plumbing, toilets, baths etc. are no more than 9 years old.   All of the doors and windows are double glazed with integral shutters and fly screens with metal Rejas (typical Andalucían window bars).

The external walls are some 20ins (50cm) thick with 5 cm of cavity wall insulation. The roof is fully insulated.   This allows for a cool feeling in the summer and warm in the winter.

This luxurious building is 65.5ft (20m) long and 29.5ft (9m) wide, not including the 2 x covered terraces and the boiler room.

It boasts an American style kitchen, massive entrance hall and landing, separate lounge, study, 6/7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a cloakroom, air conditioning, a sauna, 6 x person spa set in its own secluded area. It also has a designated boules court with seating and table and a 6 x 3.75 mt pool with massive shaded area and a pump/changing room.   There is a car port for the car and a wood shed.

The sale will also include a Suzuki 4×4 soft top car to enable you to go right into the heart of the beautiful mountains behind the house.

The lower floor has almost 10ft (3mt) ceiling height and the upper floor almost 9ft (2.7m) which gives the feeling of airy space.

It is fully centrally heated with 2 additional wood burners.  Hot water is supplied by 2 large immersion tanks which are heated either by the oil fired central heating or electricity.  Water softener and reverse osmosis.

There are 2 satellite dishes, one of which is Sky, ADSL and WiFi on line and surround sound in 3 rooms.

The house is a spacious, opulent area for our family to live in but it has also been designed so it can be easily converted into 3 apartments with communal rooms and spaces to allow for bed and breakfast rentals if so required.

It would also make a fantastic holiday home away from the stress and high speed life style of modern living in the UK.  It could therefore be rented out as a holiday let when not in use.  Local people would be able to look after the house and gardens etc. as the infrastructure is all in place in the village.

There is a real market for teaching English here as a second language to the local Spanish and it would not be difficult to easily earn a decent wage teaching from the house for just a few hours a week at your convenience. For example, only teaching 4 days a week for 16 hrs will achieve 1,264 Euros per month.  However there are lots of opportunities to easily expand on this. Clare has just secured a short term contract with the Town Hall for teaching English.  She will be teaching twice a week for an hour and a half for 3 months.  For this she will earn 1,500 Euros.

We are also offering a Suzuki Santana 4×4 soft top car within the price of the house which is not only great fun to go up into the mountains with but is very handy collecting wood and taking olives to the factory.  We have had this car since 2004 and have had some fantastic times in it.
