SPAIN: ANDALUCIA – a simple house with forest garden, off-grid, in a vast natural landscape.
95,000 euros, less for a sale by August. Full details, including photographs/ videos/ and tv interview on the pages of our website:
I have spent my entire life moving towards a simpler/ healthier/ sustainable existence, bit-by-bit edging away from what was considered “normal.” In 2000 my partner and I finally made the last big step, sold everything and set off in a van, to find a truly wild and remote place. Nine years later, after searching all the forgotten corners of Spain/ Portugal/ and Canada, we found the one place that fulfilled all those dreams, in SW Andalucia/ Portugal, where we built our cosy off-grid “tiny” house amidst its six acres of what will eventually become a “natural” forest garden, surrounded by 183,000 hectares of wilderness. Rejoicing that we had found the impossible.
Sadly, after 35 wonderful years together, Maureen died. This was a setback that proved tougher to deal with than anything else we’d been through. But then someone new came into my life and helped me back on the path again. She lives in Shetland and after four years we have just got married and heading north to live there, so El Pocito is for sale.
If you are interested in taking EL POCITO on, the asking price was 130,000 euros but is now reduced to 95,000 euros for a quick sale (with the buyer responsible for the transfer of title), or any reasonable offer. We would also consider a straight swap for a property in Shetland. Or if you recommend this property to the eventual buyer we will pay a 3% commission on the sale price.
Hi Aleka Briley
Sorry, I have no idea what the residency requirements are for US citizens. The people I met in Spain from the US lived very simply, none had a full-time job, most taught English a couple of hours a day.
