For sale: Cueva Rosa is an off-grid rare-to-find, paradoxical paradise of a cave home set in the Altiplano countryside, in the Roman town of Baza, in Granada, Spain.
Cueva Rosa is remote yet only 10 minutes from Baza and its sizeable hospital, 4 large supermarkets, plentiful shops, and cultural and sports facilities: Baza's a seemingly quiet, historical town, but also host to the Internationally recognised and slightly bonkers fiesta, Cascamorras (as well as numerous other fiestas).
A private property with no passing traffic, but with neighbours at 800m. A stunning and unusual cave home, charming and cosy, but with large rooms, high ceilings and ample natural light. Fully reformed to an excellent standard, but with 9 unreformed rooms to do with as you wish. Currently 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, but lock a dividing door and it becomes a 2 bed home with a separate 1 bed accommodation ready to rent. Or reform those additional 9 interlinked rooms to create a wonderful tourism opportunity.
Fully off-grid solar/wind hybrid system and a plentiful borehole well, but with the option to connect to electricity at 500m and water 50m away. With a large fenced garden, but acres of workable, potentially profitable land too (vineyard, glamping, camping, trees or crops – the possibilities are numerous). Ideal for a back to basics self sufficient lifestyle, but with high speed internet and satellite beamed line of site from Mount Jabalcon, and excellent 3/4G phone coverage for all networks, it's perfect for remote working.
Located in the heart of real Spain with charming traditions, a rural lifestyle and free tapas, but with a sociable thriving expat community at your doorstep should you desire. With dry heat, plentiful blue sky days and clear balmy summer nights, yet with snow capped mountains visible from the kitchen window in the Winter. With easy access to the A92N travel to the coast, the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada, two main airports (Granada and Almeria), or the stunning city of Granada all within 1h30 – or, just a stone's throw from the cave, explore beaches on the 33km stunning lake Negratin, natural thermal baths, waterfalls, wooded forests, roman archeological sites and some of the best Paleolithic discoveries in Europe, as well as endless picturesque villages.
South facing, 100% fully legal and registered with all documents in place. Total completed liveable area is 164m2, with an additional 150m2 of living space to reform. Building licenses are existing to renovate those additional caves, and we have an OCA license (for farm animals) to keep equine, ovine and poultry. Secure fenced garden of approximately 2500m2, including a 60m2 beautiful covered porch and 86m2 of outbuildings currently utilised as a double garage, a stable and chicken corral, with concrete floors and tethering points. Double width gates at either end of the garden open to 25,000m2 of registered land with a productive organic fruit and vegetable garden, and with additional 25,000m2 just 1km away along an adjacent track. The property and land is surrounded by organic fields of Thyme and Rosemary. All of this for just 199,950€ (approx. £170,000 depending on exchange rate at point of sale).
Quick sale needed as one of us has regrettably developed photosensitivity from a pre-exisiting condition: if we could pick our beautiful home up and move it elsewhere, we would. It is the perfect property and/or business for the eco conscious, for rural tourism, horticulturists or equine enthusiasts: Cueva Rosa is a wonderful haven of a natural abode, ready for the next privileged owner to fulfill the property's fullest potential.
