For those potential ex-pats out there, I found two candidates for fixer upper this year. Both are in the white villages, the first in Grazalema. As they say, location, location, location. Here is a “comp” house in the same neighborhood.
And here’s the candidate. (Bear in mind, it is a fixer-upper.)
As you can see, it needs a bit of TLC. However, after closer inspection, I eliminated it as a candidate. Peeking through an opening in the facade, it seems there’s little left but the facade.
I was sad to lose such a promising piece of real estate, but I soon found another in the charming town of Ubrique.
Notice how it mimics the classic lines of the flatiron in Times Square.
The foundation seems to need a bit of work.
But it has the character and patina of a fine antique.
So, any takers? My advice? This one won’t be on the market long. Grab it while you can…
