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.

A mutual opportunity in Galicia

I would like to find a few people who would be interested in beginning a project together in Galicia. Property there is cheap if people are prepared to put the work in. I would like to find some like minded people to share the cost and the work and to create something beautiful and profitable. The details of which can be discussed. People need to be prepared to invest equal amounts ranging from 20,000 euros upwards, this can be individuals or couples or families. Please contact me here if you're interested. Alex.

Houses and land in rural Galicia

I live in a tiny hamlet in Lugo Province, near Chantada. My 87-year old neighbour wants to sell his properties and I've agreed to publicise them a bit.
They're expensive for this part of the world, but one house is in excellent condition, having been built by five stonemasons over two and a half years about 20 years ago. It's quite large, with utilty space at ground level and living areas upstairs as is normal here, and there's a lot of space in the roof too. The second house is for thorough restoration but essentially sound. They come with about 2ha of Grade 1 farmland enclosed by another mason-built high wall and contianing fruit trees, vines and a lot of grass. There are also some ruinous outbildings.
Both houses are fairly large, I think about 150-200 square metres per floor and between them could accommodate quite a lot of people and workspace.
He's asking £250k for the new house and £150k for the older one, with the land split between them if sold separately. I suspect there may be a little wiggle room there, but bear in mind that taxes and fees will add about 12% if you're not a resident, and about 9% if you are.
This is a splendid and peaceful, fertile and beautiful place but not somewhere to look for jobs.
I'll provide more details if there's any interest, and would consider a part share in any interesting scheme. My own land adjoins one of the remote fields my neighbour owns, and I'm in the process of planting lots of nut and fruit trees.

2 Properties Portugal, 70,000 Sqm Land Nisa, 2000sq mtr Land with 2 houses

Hi Everyone, I have two properties for sale in Portugal.

Land of 7 hectors of close to Nisa, in the area of Castello Branco. The Land has 2 artisan Wells, one in perfect condition, the other needing a little repair.

There are wild boar, deer and game bird that populate, and move through the land. The land contains eucalyptus, pine and oak. Currently I allow a local bee keeper to use the land as it is perfect for producing honey there. There is the potential to ask for a rental income, or start your own apiculture business.

I am selling the land for 16,000 Euros. All documentation is correct on the land, and the new owner can move to it immediately after the paperwork is signed. This is defined as rustic land, so there are no land taxes. Property's with no foundations can be erected, wooden huts or yurts etc.

2nd Property Guarda, 2000sq mtr property with 2 houses.
1st house has 3 floors of 128sq mtr. Lower floor is a workshop, needs a little tidying but excellent space. 1st floor completely habitable, brand new double glazing windows and doors, with privacy glass. Open-plan kitchen, modern design, rewired, re-plumbed, modern wood-burning stove with feature fireplace. This is a beautiful property that can be moved into immediately and finished to your requirements. Great project for those who want to get on the property ladder.

If you're are interested then get in touch. The land is being advertised by ERA, I can send you the link to the ad. The house has not yet be put online, but I will accept 60,000 Euros. The sale will be processed by ERA to ensure everything is correct and all paperwork is complete.

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.

75,000 euros or best offer – sale can be completed in two days.

Full details, including lots of photographs/ videos/ even a tv interview, can be found on the pages of the website: (but first you will need to replace the two “*” with “.”)
https://elpocito*wordpress*com.

Very briefly, I have spent my entire life moving towards a simpler/ healthier/ sustainable existence. To that end in 2000 we sold all our possesions and set off in a converted van to find a truly wild and remote place. Nine years later, after exploring all the forgotten corners of Spain/ Portugal/ and Canada, we found the one place that fulfilled all our criteria, here in Almonaster la Real, SW Andalucia, Spain.

That was in 2009. Where we built our cosy off-grid “tiny” (42m2) hillside house. Using stone found on site, powered by solar panels, and with its own borehole for the purest of water. Set in six very private acres (25,000m2) of what will eventually become a “natural” food forest, surrounded by 183,000 hectares of even bigger forestry/ wilderness.

Sadly in 2013 my partner died. Then this year I married again, and we just moved to Shetland. So the house is ready for moving into immediately. All the paperwork is ready, totally legal, and could be yours in two days. There is no possibility of renting.

If you are interested, the original asking price was 130,000 euros, but now has been reduced to 75,000 euros, or best offer. A friend in Almonaster la Real is ready to show you around.

If you recommend this to the eventual buyer we will pay a 3% commission on the sale price.

Look forward to hearing from you. Phil (WhatsApp 0797 996 5876, or email: monkeyandsofia@yahoo.co.uk), please do not telephone.
