Just 38,500 EUROS will buy you this wonderfully located property, if you also take over the small existing mortgage for only 184 euros a month (payments reduce annually too!)

Costa del Sol. Malaga. Fully Renovated 2-bed cottage in pretty hamlet, near coast. 63 m2. 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, lounge and kitchen.
(Malaga has approx 325 days sunshine a year, up to 11 hours a day!) Costs of living are also extremely low, and its very cheap to eat out too!
Corner terrace Cottage in a lovely area – a pretty hamlet, near Cartama, bordering citrus groves, with extensive views across the valley and to the mountains. Situated on the far corner of a pretty, peaceful hamlet in the countryside, it has orange and lemon groves right outside the house on both sides, and views of these from all windows!
Unbeatable location in the picturesque countryside of the popular Lower Guadalhorce Valley, yet it is also very close to major roads and only 10-15 mins from the beaches of the Costa-del-sol, Golf, Malaga city, and the airport too! Additionally, Marbella is also only about 40 mins away!
It's also on an regular public transport route.
Situated away from all the crowds and noise of the coast but you can live in peace in the beautiful countryside, yet be only a short drive away from all the facilities of the Costa del Sol, so its very quick and easy to access all the facilities the coast offers, but is not too far inland, so does not suffer from the severe extremes of temperature that are encountered in villages further inland (-villages where you will find many cheap houses advertised for sale, as few people want to live in these temperatures!)
Unlike the purely beach tourist resorts, Malaga city, which is only a short distance away, offers a lot more than just sun, sea and sand! - and is well known for also being Picasso's birthplace, as well as for it's traditional culture, many fascinating historical monuments, dating back to Moorish and Roman times, and its wide variety of interesting museums, innovative restaurants,quirky old town streets etc..
Fully renovated to English standards, approx 5 years ago. It was fully re-wired, replumbed, English Sealed unit UPVC double-glazing fitted throughout with a Solid oak fitted English Hygena kitchen, Heating/Air Con.upstairs and down.
Importantly this neighourhood is SAFE, with zero crime, and although the windows have strong and good quality English standard double glazing, there is no need to live in a “prison” and have the metal prison type bars on your windows here! - which you see on so many Spanish houses!
And unlike many traditional Spanish cottages too, which are often dark and gloomy inside, this has plenty of good natural light in all rooms, and views from every room too!- so has a airy, spacious feel.
If you want to experience the true Spanish culture - away from all the noise, hustle and bustle of the coast without having to pay all the Community Fees and Service Charges payable on apartments or in new housing developments, this cottage is for you!
NO Community Fees or Service Charges are payable at all!
And in addition, it also has very low Council Tax (only approx 52 Euros a YEAR!) and is very cheap and easy to maintain.The property consists of:
12'4 x 11'3 (3.44m x3.77m) with powerful air conditioning/heating unit that heats all the ground floor, sealed unit UPVC windows with dual opening and countryside views.

Fully Legal, on Urban land, and with a full Escitura (Property Title Deed) and all paperwork in order (unlike many other properties in the countryside!)
All mains services connected. Ready to move in.
It's in a very quiet hamlet which is a cul-de-sac, so there is no passing traffic, so it's very safe for children and pets outside.
It's classified as an “Urban” property, so can legally be extended upwards another storey, plus a roof terrace added, if desired. (many of the neighbours do have roof terraces)
The views from this would be amazing, and of the whole valley!
There is also plenty of parking immediately outside the property.
If a garden/outdoor area is required, a small area (approx 100m2) of
land is available adjacent to the house for long-term/permanent rent, very cheaply,
just across the lane (like all the neighbours gardens). This was the original garden of the property and is owned by another English person. However, it has no Title Deed, so the land is not buildable or officially saleable, therefore the rent will be very low! It also has an old shed on it too.
The hamlet has tarmac roads, street lighting, all mains services and also a charming rustic Spanish flamenco bar/restaurant which is very popular, and also a kiosk which sells, crisps, beer etc. It is also served by mobile vans which sell a variety of fresh food and other products daily.
All the neighbours are very friendly and helpful.
It is only 2.5km from Cartama, which provides all the facilities of a town, Supermarkets (including Lidls) many shops, stores, bars (including an English Bar) a variety of restaurants, parks, gyms, public swimming pools, and a large new Sports city with a large football stadium, athletics track, tennis courts, large indoor Sports Hall etc.
There are also beautiful walks by the river amongst the orange and lemon groves, right in front of the house, ideal for dog walking, or just relaxing! And it is also a popular area for horse-riding and cycling,with mountain walks nearby too, on the other side of the house.
It is extremely cheap to eat out here too, the average cost of a 3 course meal (Menu of the day, available in most of the local bars/restaurants,with a variety of choices of freshly prepared food)
is only around 7.50 Euros, including a drink and usually bread too! Or
for a snack, a beer with a tapa, for around 2 Euros.
Malaga is also renowned for the quality and variety of it's wonderful and delicious fish dishes too!
Move in ready. All kitchen appliances are included, and most furniture etc is also available,if required.
Ideal as a holiday home, for permanent living, or just as a good investment, as property prices are rising on the Costa-del-sol and are predicted to continue doing so for the forseeable future!
Only approx.10-15 mins away from Malaga airport, which is served by lots of regular cheap flights to and from the Uk, often for as little as £30 return. (but is Not on the flight path!)
Good investment for the future as property prices are rising on the Costa del Sol and are predicted to continue rising..
Valued at 145,000 Euros a few years ago, but now hugely reduced for quick sale, due to job loss, hence Bargain price of only 73,500 Euros.
Note: sale price is in Euros, although the ad. States the current GBP equivalent at the time of placing the ad, note the amount in GBP may go up or down according to the exchange rate!
If you don't have sufficient funds to buy outright, you can pay 38,500 EUROS cash and take over the small mortgage on it, which is only approx 184 Euros (approx £135)
a month, (and decreasing annually), (This is very normal in Spain on a property sale, subject to the bank's agreement). The mortage term is until April 2034 when it should all be paid off, although you do also have the option of lump sum repayments to reduce the balance over the term, or paying it all off early.
(Taking over the mortgage would also save you the 5000 Euro+ fee the Spanish banks often charge to take out a new mortgage)
It is extremely cheap for a property in this popular area, and is Priced to SELL (due to job loss/relocation). However, all sensible, serious offers will be considered, but no silly offers please!
All genuine enquires welcomed.
Please don't hesitate to ask anything else at all that you'd like to know.. Many more pics also available on request.
But - timewasters, please refrain!
