- INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY
- CENTRE OF A SMALL VILLAGE
- 30 MINUTES FROM THE AIRPORT
- LAND IN THE CENTER OF THE VILLAGE
- ALL PAPERWORK
Interesting investment opportunity located in centre of small village less than 30 minutes from airport and beach with excellent autovia access.
Land with basically a pile of stones, which used to be a property that had a build of (138 sq. mt ground floor) and additional outbuildings totaling 67 sq. mts. The Escritura registers a large, level 700 sq. mt plot of urbanisable land located directly behind what was the ruin. Electricity and water nearby.
The laws here in Spain have changed over the last few years as to whom and if an existing or partial ruin can be rebuilt. Spanish Property Choice have all relevant documentation on file, however we recommend that any potential purchaser employ an independent solicitor to check out the legalities of the land and any possibility of rebuilding in the future. If a property is on rustic land we would suggest because of what we know you will not be given any planning permissions, however with a part urban plot the town hall would more than likely be happy to see a house back there on the plot rather than a pile of old stones.
Possibility to purchase adjacent property (seen in photos as small two storey structure).
Close to Sorbas.
Like the nearby Desierto de Tabernas Natural Area, this is a dramatically eroded lunar landscape of semi-arid desert covering 2,375ha, designated a protected area in 1989. It is also Spain's most important karst landscape composed of gypsum (yeso), and one of the best examples of its kind in the world.
Its gypsophyte flora - plants that are gypsum-tolerant - are of exceptional botanical interest, with many of them endemic and rare or endangered. These species are under threat, however, mainly from mining activity, which, although prohibited within the protected area, is the economic mainstay of Sorbas. Almeria province provides the greatest amount of gypsum in Spain, while near Sorbas is Los Yesares, Europe's largest gypsum quarry.
Although a desert region, the area has some surprisingly lush corners, like stretches of the Aguas river that cuts through the desert creating sheer sided ravines. It's especially verdant around Los Molinos del Río Aguas, where natural springs have created a mini-oasis of great ecological importance in the midst of a desert. It's worth following the walk along this river, to enjoy the contrast of the dry desert with this magnificent green corridor.
The village of Sorbas is an unlikely conglomeration of Cubist architecture teetering on the edge of a chasm. The limestone labyrinth of caves are the area's main visitor attraction, but the village is also renowned for its pottery.
