House For Sale

Situated in the very popular village of Marinaleda which is equidistant from Malaga and Seville Airports just over 1 hour away, Marinaleda boasts facilities you would only expect in a large town, medical center, schools for all ages, outdoor swimming pool complex, sports center and gym and parks in addition to local shops, bars and restaurants. Transport links are good with nearby motorway networks to all the major cities. A short drive to the new AVE (high speed rail link) to major cities bringing them all to within a 30 minute journey.The modernised frontage of a traditional village house in a quiet street disguises the size of the more than ample living space that is inside. The house has been sensitively reformed to offer modern living whilst retaining the traditional Andalucian charm and character.

The house is 106m build 122m plot, 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and situated in a quiet residential area. It was renovated prior to our purchase 5 years ago and has both new electrics and plumbing.

Entering the house directly into the Lounge you are greeted by the view through the open plan layout. Wooden beams and traditional fittings blend well with the modern décor and paint schemes . The Lounge area is of an ample size to accommodate all the furnishings of a modern home. A log burning stove adds a focal point to the room and efficient heating throughout. To the rear of the lounge you pass through the dining area into the open plan Kitchen which is fully fitted to a good standard. The dining area offers adequate space for family dining.

A small passageway incorporating the laundry utility facilities leads to the large ground floor family bathroom which is fully fitted including a bath and a massage shower cubicle. A rear door leads from the Kitchen Diner out to a fully tiled patio area. This has been tastefully presented with a gazebo and mature potted patio plants and bamboos .It is fully walled and large enough for a plunge pool or jacuzzi spa bath and perfect for barbecuing on the warm nights.

From the dining room an enclosed staircase leads to the upper floor. To the front of the house is the master bedroom with air-conditioning this is a large room currently with a king-sized bed still leaving plenty of room to spare. There are a further 2 bedrooms off the passageway one a single room and the other a double room. There is also a second bathroom with shower, w.c and hand-wash facilities. This is a book not to be judged by its cover and internal viewing is highly recommended. It is a property that satisfies many uses be it as a permanent home holiday retreat or investment/rental property.

IBI Urbana 39 euros per year!!! Summer pass for pool 3.50 Euros for the whole summer!!! Free WiFi Internet to all homes!!! This is a cheap place to live within a proud strong and welcoming community.

Marinaleda has a huge demand for rental with very little property offered for the purpose predominantly due to the high ’employment’ within the village despite the crisis. See here

On another page is some information I put together relating to Marinaleda though much more is available across the net and on you tube. Our Mayor is loved and hated (a little like Marmite) across Spain but is greatly respected within our village where he has remained in power for over 30 years. Love him or not he leads a strong and peaceful community that exists without the need for a police force!
