An absolutely unique and naturally beautiful Off-grid smallholding near to Comares, Málaga in Southern Spain, with unlimited water, from an all year round spring, and a one room rustic wooden cabin.
Due to family commitments in the UK we're looking to sell our secluded, completely off-grid finca set in 4 acres of land, just one hour from Málaga airport, in the Axarquia region of Southern Spain.
The finca consists of 3 parcels of land, each with it's own Escritura / Deeds. The taxes have all been paid.
The land is classified as 'Rústica', which means that, at the moment, you can't build a concrete/brick type permanent structure on it.
6 years ago I built, quite legally, a one room wooden cabin (6m x 4.5m) and an adjoining covered outside living area / terrace and a detached bathroom / shower room with compost toilet.
It's all set up for instant 'off-grid' living. There's a water deposit by the spring and a pump and the pipework set up to transfer the water from the spring to the tank above the cabin.
There are no utility bills to pay. It has its own water and electricity is generated by solar panels.
We've lived 'off-grid' on this land for over 10 years now, in a camper, a caravan, a yurt and in the cabin itself.
Within the 4 Acres / 16000 square metres of grounds, which are steep in places, there are various different areas:
The main plot with the cabin etc on it.
100 metres away, along the track, there's a big open flat area with incredible mountain views.
An area below the cabin with the spring and several old stone terraces, extensive allotment areas and an orange and lemon orchard. A magical little Shangri-la with an enormous carob tree!
There are some vines, almond, olive, orange, lemon, níspero and avocado trees and plenty of terraced vegetable growing areas with unlimited irrigation water. The surrounding views are absolutely stunning.
We've left a lot of the land natural / wild. Finca La Umbría has a real back to the land feel to the place.
Access is via a mile long track, with beautiful sea and mountain views. It's mostly regularly well maintained and although it is possible to get in or out with a normal vehicle it would be more reliable to have the use of a 4 x 4.
Although there are friendly small communities close by, there are no near neighbours and it's pretty much surrounded by avocado and mango plantations and olive and almond trees.
The nearest town, Comares, which is 10 minutes away, offers 4 bars, 2 hotels, a supermarket and a tobacconist /estanco. Whilst the coast and a much bigger market town is 30-40 minutes away.
Finca La Umbria would be perfect for an organic / permaculture based smallholding, an awesome cosy family homestead or it could be developed as an off grid retreat, an "under the radar" glamping / wild camping scene or venue for workshops / yoga etc or just somewhere fabulous to live.
Even though we've done so much around the place already there's unlimited potential to create something truly unique.
There's a great phone signal and as well as high speed Internet, which is available from a nearby 'line of sight' antenna.
We would be happy to receive informal enquiries initially - feel free to contact us.
We're planning on being out there for most of October for viewings. You really need to see it for yourself!
