Four years ago we bought a large plot of land, with spectacular views, above the pretty little village of Guajar Alto between Granada and the Mediterranean coast in Andalucia, Southern Spain. On the land was a small house of only 50 square metres. We extended the house, surrounded it with terraces, put in a swimming pool, built a garage/ workshed, revived the olive trees and made a vegetable garden.
Now, with regret, we need to sell our property and move on. The credit crunch has hit us badly and, although we have no mortgage, we have to raise some money to invest in our business to keep us going. We have put the property on the market at the very cheap price of 295,000 euros to encourage a quick sale. You will not find a comparable property at this price in the region.
This blog will follow our attempts to sell the property and our progress in finding our next home. We will still want to live in rural Granada and this property is likely to be a rural house in need of renovation or a piece of land.
