Converted Olive Mill
Olive Mill, Colmenar

Unique Properties

Spain has approximately 1,5 million empty properties and in total over 20 million properties in habitable condition and the one thing that never ceases to amaze me is the uniqueness of these buildings. Obviously, there are thousands, nay, hundreds of thousands of apartments in tower blocks and other faceless construction projects BUT there are equally hundreds of thousands of unique properties. Here I spotlight five such unique properties which are scattered across Spain. The one thing they have in common is that they are currently available for sale at hugely attractive prices. If you have the money, there are bargains to be had with discounts in some cases above 500,000 euros!

Property of the Week

Each week I highlight one property that offers something exceptional. It will always offer great value for money but it might be focused because of its location, price, gardens, accommodation or a host of other reasons. The one thing I can guarantee is that it will go fast. So, if you are interested do not hesitate to make your initial contact TODAY!

A Palace in the City

This is just an amazing bargain to buy in the historical centre of Valencia near to the Torres Serranos. It is right in the heart of the Carmen but on a pedestrianised square. The whole building is for sale with over 800m2 available in four floors. There is even an extra part that is partially finished to the rear which offers a brilliant opportunity to have amazing glassed in terraces with views of the old Arabic wall that used to surround Valencia.

The entrance leads us to an open plan lobby with potential to be a great common area for a hotel as there is a hotel quality kitchen on the first floor. Each floor is totally open plan with around 200m2 per floor and there whole building has been fully modernised recently. To the rear the extra unfinished part of the building stands ready to make this property extremely special.

The building has plenty of possibilities and also boasts a large roof terrace and even an observatory. The potential for development is huge and the potential for eventual capital gain must also be considered if developed in the right way. This will be a brilliant hotel or it could also suit a group of friends wanting to have a flat each as each floor has a door leading from the stairwell and they are independent. There is also space to put in a lift if required.

The best value building currently for sale in central Valencia in my opinion.

Asturias, Stylish Country House Hotel

Beautifully renovated with a stylish eye for detail, this fully operational country house hotel has a total of 8 en-suite bedrooms spread over 3 floors and a build size of 500m2. Nestled in grounds of 3,800m2 the property has stunning views to the Picos de Europa mountains.

This Indiano-style mansion was renovated in 2006 by a Madrileña fleeing the stresses of big city life. It was her dream project and she poured her heart and soul (as well as her excellent taste and considerable sums of money) into the renovations and established an idyllic country retreat. But sometimes life has other plans for us. When her mother fell ill she was required to scale back the business and instead devote herself to being a carer. At the same time, the economic crisis struck – bad news for anyone with a million euro property to sell. She hung on, juggling the business and family commitments, closing for months at a time and rejecting the handful of offers that came in. Now the day has come when she won’t wait any longer. She’s just slashed more than 50% off the initial asking price, putting this dream property within easy reach of the latest generation of big city escapees. A one million euro property marketed for urgent sale at just 450,000 euros
