Properties might suit Communities

This noticeboard is intended for notices about properties that might be suitable for communal living. Perhaps some kind of community was resident there in the past or you're an existing group who all want to leave at the same time, thereby vacating a property.
If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

SPAIN: ANDALUCIA – a simple house with forest garden, off-grid, in a vast natural landscape.

SPAIN: ANDALUCIA – a simple house with forest garden, off-grid, in a vast natural landscape. 85,000 euros. 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 nature. Rejoicing that we had found the impossible. This journey is chronicled in two books by Maureen: TREAD SOFTLY BECAUSE YOU TREAD ON MY DREAMS (, and MUSINGS ON A MORE SIMPLE LIFE (, both free to download in pdf format. 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 came into my life and helped me back on the path again. The only problem is she lives in Shetland, so very reluctantly I am going there to join her. If you are interested in taking EL POCITO on, the asking price was 130,000 euros but is now reduced to 85,000 euros for a sale by the end of September at the latest. I would also consider a straight swap for a property in Shetland. Plus if you recommend this property to the eventual buyer we will pay a 3% commission on the sale price. Look forward to hearing from you. Phil (WhatsApp +34 633 731 906).

Aquatic plant nursery for sale in Cornwall

Hello fellow diggers and dreamers, Want to post about this place, as it's beautiful, but needs some TLC. It's the Lanjeth Aquatic Plant Nursery in Cornwall near to St Austell. 13.5 acres of nursery, woodland, ponds, lake, field. Currently has 2 park homes on site and numerous greenhouses in need of TLC. John is the man to speak to. Here's the website: Too much work for me, but could be a perfect place for eco pods/yurts/retreats/holidays/aquatic plant centre. John said to me that this was the only aquatic plant centre now left in Cornwall. He and his wife have lots of plants still, plus loads in the ponds or on the land. Plus fish - goldfish and coy. The land is boundaried by streams. Natural springs on site. Well worth a look if you have the physical strength, vision, team who could revitalise this beautiful space and give it some loving. John and his wife would love for the site to remain as a natural space, not concreted over for development. All good wishes, Zelly
