House of 101m2 all on one level to renovate, with outbuildings around an inner patio – plot of around 10,000m2 with productive avocado orchard
An interesting property with excellent access and a roadside location, with a productive avocado farm and own water.
Located close to the village of Benamocarra and the country town of Velez Malaga, within 10 minutes’ drive from the coast, Finca Pilar Luchena is an ideal for project for anyone wishing to run a small avocado production business.
The plot consists of around 10,000m2 with approximately 350 mature, productive avocado trees, on two flat levels. In amonst the avocados, the current owners have an above ground pool, for the family to enjoy in the summer.
There are 2 wells, one around 33m under ground, and the other around 80m, providing a reliable and steady supply of irrigation water. There is so much water that there is no need to pump the water into a water storage deposit: the owners pump the water directly from the wall to the trees.
The house, by the roadside, consists of a very large covered terrace area. From here, double doors lead into a hallway (3 x 2.5m). To either side is a bedroom (each around 4 x 2.5m) with windows to the front. An archway from the rear of the hallway leads into a living room (4 x 3.5m). A window immediately to the rear overlooking the courtyard to the back, could be replaced with double doors leading out to the courtyard. To the right is the kitchen (3 x 3m) and to the left of the living room is an additional room (4 x 3.5m) and double doors from this room to a bathroom (2 x 1.5m) and a store room (4 x 3m). Doors also lead out to the courtyard.
The house needs renovation, but has some lovely original features, such as beams and cane ceilings, and old walls, alcoves, etc.
The patio courtyard is around 6 x 9m, with a side door leading out to the front of the property. Around the far sides of the patio are semi open outbuildings, used once for animals, making a total of around 50m2 of covered areas, possibly convertible into extra living accommodation, or covered areas in the patio.
To the side of the property is a large parking area and a track leading up to the upper level of the plot. The currentl owners make around 20,000 Euros of income from the avocado crop annually.
