FOR SALE €395,000 - BUNGALOW CHALET, RESIDENTIAL, RURAL HOUSE
La Escalona Canarian farmhouse with several dwellings for sale in the lovely hillside village of La Escalona, Tenerife
This La Escalona Canarian farmhouse was for sale at €650k a few years ago, now it is only €395k…BARGAIN!
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a traditional Canarian farmhouse with additional guest apartments.
This interesting property, just 20 minutes drive from Los Cristianos or Las Chafiras, is the ideal purchase for those seeking a multi-family home or for those looking for a home that also provides them an income. At the present time the owners have two paying tenants both prepared to stay or go, according to the needs of the new owner.
Situated on a very quiet lane with beautiful views down to the sea and up to the mountains, it is in the heart of rural tourism territory, being just five minutes away from Vilaflor and the beginning of the pine forests that lead up to the El Teide National Park.
The Canarian house is over 200 years old, with the original wooden beams throughout. It is a 140 square metre, 2 bedroom home, with separate kitchen, dining room, and two WC shower rooms, plus a central, sunny and bright covered in lounge.
Leading from the back of the main house, stable style doors from the kitchen lead to a small terrace, with utility room including a washing machine, a tumble dryer and large, chest freezer. This area also provides a large, underground water tank that is pump driven and designed to kick-in should local water pressure fall. Leading from the terrace are stairs up to a roof terrace and separate area with clothes lines.
A door from the patio in the main house leads into a self-contained one-bedroom, 70 square metre apartment, with its own front door. This apartment has a spacious bedroom with fully built-in, roomy wardrobes. The living room/kitchen is typical ‘American style’ and there is a shower room. The front door leads out to a small terrace at street level, ideal for al fresco dining. The back door leads to the stairs up to the sun terrace and clothes drying areas.
Adjacent to the main house is a fully self-contained 50 square metre studio apartment. This dwelling has its own gate which enters into a beautiful, well established garden. Outside the front door is ample space for a table and chairs. Inside the apartment, double ‘French doors’ lead to a charming solarium, filled with plants and completely fly screened.
From the solarium one has access to a roof terrace of 100 square metres, with lots of potential.
On the lower level of land is a one car garage and workshop. Next door is an 85 square metre, one bedroom apartment. Beautifully tiled, this open plan flat is airy and spacious. The living room, kitchen, dining room is one big, open area, with an archway leading to the bedroom, which has a compact, walk-in wardrobe space. The bathroom is modern, with wet-room style shower unit.
Paperwork for this part of the La Escalona Canarian farmhouse can be easily obtained from the Vilaflor Town Hall. The owners have lived in it for 10 years. Costs to finalise are minimal.
The final space is a half-finished studio apartment that would take minimal funds to complete and thus provide further income. It is presently being used for storage. There are a few other unfinished projects underway.
On the lower level, directly outside of the one bedroom, is currently being used for growing vegetables. It could easily be used for a BBQ area, with table and chairs. At the far end of the property is outdoor parking for 4 cars, and this space could easily accommodate a swimming pool too. A tier of agricultural land, approximately 85 square meters, is also at the far end, which could be landscaped to provide a lovely sitting area to spend some quiet time or soak up the sun.
The entire property is surrounded with gardens, mature and well kept. Fruit trees include tangerines, figs, oranges, nesperas, olives and almonds. There are also prickly pear cactus and grape vines with sufficient yield for a small supply of wine. The owners currently give the grapes to a local wine maker in return for a supply of vino!
This La Escalona Canarian farmhouse has so much potential, although still needs the finishing touches. Ideal for a rural rental for the many hikers that stay in the area, providing an income as well as a home. Long term rentals are also an option. The current owners have lived there for almost two decades, and plan to buy a smaller place in the area, due to ill-health making it impossible to complete their project.
A separate lot, with urban zoning and directly opposite the main house, could also be available. Currently used for dog runs, this plot has fabulous views down to the sea and up to the mountains and is approximately 900 metres squared.
This is definitely a fascinating La Escalona Canarian farmhouse and perfect for those with imagination who are looking for something special, different and a place where they can ‘leave their mark’.
