Tortosa- Coll d´Alba – Casita 2 bedrooms, ecological olive finca €77,000
Set in the hills of Coll dÁlba, Tortosa but really nearer to the popular market town of El Perellò and the seaside town of L’Ampolla we have this sympathetically restored and extended casita. The house sits in 1.6 hectares of certified ecological olive grove in 2 parcelas. There are also almond trees, a couple of cherry trees, a fig and ciruela (plum) tree around the house. It´s location on the side of a hill shelters it from the winter winds.
The casita has all wooden double glazing and the whole building has had a new tiled roof. You enter into the lounge / dining area which has lovely old wooden beams and high windows to let in lots of natural light. An antique, enameled cast iron wood burner heats this area. The floor has yet to be laid but this is an opportunity to make it your own style.
The kitchen is set in the corner, rustic style with a breakfast bar and a gas hot water boiler.
Some steps lead into the original ´casita´ with exposed original stone walls. This still has the original fireplace and currently houses the solar equipment but would make a great ´snug´or study or additional bedroom.
Off this is a shower room with plumbing for washing machine. These 2 rooms could be re designed into a bigger kitchen if required. Stone steps take you to the original mezzanine level where there is a double bedroom with an velux window for even more light.
There is also another mezzanine bedroom above the kitchen area, accessed by wooden stairs in the kitchen.
There is a ´cisterna´of 7.ooo litres for rainwater collection outside and a 12v small solar system which would need upgrading for permanent living but perfectly sufficient for a second home. There is an ecological septic tank.
Outside there is a level area shaded by an old olive tree – a perfect spot for a table and chairs to enjoy the countryside.
The land is laid to 3 long terraces above the house – with olives and almonds and the land extends to terraces below the access track. There are lovely mountain and pine forest views, houses can be seen in the distance but you are not directly overlooked.
All in all, this charming casita offers many possibilities. The house can easily be registered as a ´vivienda´ for year round living and the land which is green and has had no pesticides or herbicides used, comes with the’DUN’ – the yearly grant for olive farmers. The owner currently harvests around 800 litres of ecological certified olive oil.
Priced at just €77.000!
