|Address||El Pocito, Oficina de Correos, Almonaster la Real, 21350, Huelva, Spain|
|El Pocito is a well-built insulated property in good condition, completely off-grid. With reliable borehole for drinking-quality water, solar panels for electricity. The internal space is 42 m2 (with possibility for extending) and currently arranged as one large, open-plan, light and airy room (with windows on all sides, including the roof). A wood-burning stove for heating, with plenty of firewood available on the land. Stretching along the entire front of the house is a covered patio, plus there is an attached tool shed.
Access is by forestry track, by two seperate routes. 2km from the road, no need for a 4 x 4.
The land is SW facing, forested, and shaped like an amphitheatre, the highest point being around 600m. Always bright and sunny, and with panoramic views looking out across countryside as far as the border with Portugal and the coast. Many trees, including over a hundred olive, various types of oak, young fruit trees, arbutus unedo, and pine. Good potential for self-sufficiency, olive oil products, suitable for planting a vineyard, making aguardiente, and processing the wild lavender and cistus ladanifer.
Within ten minutes drive/cycling lies the beautiful Moorish village of Almonaster La Real, that attracts tourists all year round with its original narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses, topped off by handmade terracotta tiles. There are several good shops here, builders merchants, a school, medical centre, leisure centre, bank, and bars. The famous home of flamenco, Sevilla, with airport, is 90 minutes by car or bus. The regional centre Huelva and beaches a similar distance. Portugal, 45km.
The current owner is the environmentalist/forest gardener/author & infamous blogger, Phil Rooksby. Most recently featured in Lloyd Kahn’s (of Shelter fame) latest book: Small Houses.
