Fantastic home and business opportunity! 3 bed main house, two 2 bedroom self-contained rental properties and a property management business. A glorious location, peaceful and with panoramic views, this is the ideal property to enjoy the Andalucian lifestyle whilst still generating an income. For sale direct from the owners! This attractive home offers the ideal blend to allow new owners to integrate into the local community, enjoy the peaceful lifestyle so appreciated in this area of Granada and at the same time, generate income from two established businesses – holiday rentals and property management. The area is less well known than many but offers a glorious mix of traditional villages, stunning countryside, beautiful lakes and whilst tranquil and undeveloped, it is not isolated. The area is known as the Altiplano de Granada and incorporates the Geoparque de Granada, an area rich in history, diversity and amazing landscapes. The main/owner’s house and two rentals… The owner’s property comprises three bedrooms and one full bathroom plus a utility room with toilet and comfortable living accommodation including a charming living room, a home office (ideal for running the business) and a large kitchen and dining room. This property has glorious views across the open countryside to the front of the property. The two rental houses are both self-contained which means guests can look after themselves and makes for a much lower level of involvement from the owners. Both of these houses are cave houses which have been updated to create comfortable, year-round holiday rentals. Cueva Geco This 2 bedroom self-contained property has a light and bright living room/dining room/kitchen space which opens onto the front terrace, garden and pool area. There are two double bedrooms – one set as a double and the other as a twin room. The property has a shower room and separate toilet. Cueva Lince This 2 bedroom self-contained property has a generous living room with very effective pellet stove for the cooler months. A separate kitchen gives complete independence and again, there is direct access to the front gardens and pool area. The larger bedroom is a very generous double room with wardrobe and the second bedroom is a bunk room. The property has a shower room. Across the three properties, there is a total of 7 bedrooms and 3/4 bathrooms and this creates a huge amount of flexibility in terms of how the whole property is used – if the owners wanted to move into one of the cave houses during peak season, the main house could be rented for a very healthy amount. The rentals business and property management business… If you are looking for an investment or business opportunity whilst enjoying a more relaxed lifestyle in this beautiful part of the Granada region, this property really does have the best of both worlds. The rentals business has been trading for 7 years and has regular repeat visitors. There is also scope for further income – it just depends to what extent you want to develop things and what your preferred lifestyle decisions are… additional income is possible from all manner of activities – walking and cycling tours and accompanied visits to local sights and places of interest. As part of the property sale, the current owners are happy to pass across all business information, the existing website and client base to allow new owners to take over this successful and well-run business. Rental license number VTAR/GR01191 In addition to the rentals business, the owners also run an established property management business which looks after vacant properties in the local area. Also, the business offers “meet and greet” for rentals, welcome packs for guests, cleaning services and general property maintenance which can be a lifesaver for property owners who aren’t in Spain. If the property management side of the business is of no interest, it is no issue as this can easily be sold on to other interested locals. The combined income from both businesses averages around €16,000 per year however given the 2 years affected by Covid, the potential for more income is enormous. It really depends how much new owners want to do.
