The house has been in the family for many generations and sadly has been closed up for the past 7 years so slowly but surely it has deteriorated but now offers a discerning buyer an amazing opportunity.
Set in a pedestrianized street, this corner house is but a few meters away from the beautiful Plaza Mayor and church of the center of the old market town of Albox. The façade of the house is a bit jaded and flaky but look up and you will see it’s large shuttered windows with their fancy rejas are all in good condition.
To one side is an entrance to what was once a small shop, this could be kept for a small business perhaps (it even has a little washroom/loo) but could be incorporated quite easily back into the main house too by knocking down a wall. The large tall double wooden main entrance door opens up into a tall but wide passage way off which on both sides you have rooms of varying sizes. To the right are two rooms, one that has an amazing set of shelves set in, full of books, through this room you go into another where there is plenty of space for a double bed. Both of these rooms have tall shuttered windows allowing as much or as little light in as you need.
To the left of the entrance hall, again you have two rooms. The first has been used as a sitting room with a doorway that will take you through to the kitchen area, the further room again is a large double bedroom at the moment, these could certainly be knocked into one to make an enormous lounge or dining room if you wanted. The tiles on the floors are original and although work is needed to level in certain areas are not too damaged and could easily be reused.
At the end of the entrance hall is an inner hallway which leads off to a kitchen and bathroom and the staircase up to the top floor. There is also a doorway through to a small external patio, a little overgrown now but perfect in the summer apparently as it is cool and shady….
To the left is an area perfect for a dining table (the current layout) and this leads into the kitchen area where you have access out into another small courtyard, cool in the mornings and sunny in the afternoons if you want.
Just before the kitchen they have installed the only bathroom in the house. It is quite serviceable and includes a shower, loo and hand basin. The kitchen area is not the best but there is a working chimney stack where they currently have their gas hob installed under and you could easily install a wood burner or cooking range there. Off the kitchen is a larder cupboard (called a dispensar by the Spanish) and also there is access through to the front lounge too.
Going back into the hall and up the stairs will take you to at least 2 more habitable bedrooms both with Juliet balconies and shuttered windows. They are charming with original tiles on the floors and there is a stunning tiled floor on the landing. There is also a doorway going through to an enormous but undeveloped space which could easily be turned into 2 or 3 bedrooms probably with ensuites or an ensuite and family bathroom. There is also access out to the back of the house and could easily benefit from having a properly installed terrace…. The possibilities are endless with this house….
Overall, this house gives an ideal opportunity for someone who wants something a little different and spacious or for a home with an income.
