Barquilla de Pinares
€ 258,000

Originally the local school and the church but now converted into a large country house (complete with the original church bell) in a beautiful rural location a few minutes south of Villanueva de la Vera on the southern slopes of the Sierra de Gredos mountains. The house which is more than 250 sq m has a large covered front veranda, an entrance hall, large living room with good views of the mountains, high wooden ceilings and a large fireplace, a large kitchen/dining room, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The property also has mains electricity and oil fired central heating. It sits in just under 19,000 sq m (nearly 5 acres) of flat, fenced land with excellent access and has oaks, elms, willows and pines and a variety of fruit trees and bushes and there is also a swimming pool and a garage. The house is perfectly habitable now but would certainly benefit from some small amount of modernisation and TLC.

About Us

ExtremaCasa is the only estate agency specialising in overseas buyers with properties for sale all over Extremadura. Established in 2006, it is owned by Martyn Swan who opened the first British estate agents office on the Costa de la Luz, but moved to the peace and quiet of Extremadura when the Costa de la Luz showed worrying signs of becoming too popular!

After living for 12 years in Trujillo, Martyn recently moved back to the U.K.; not because he fell out of love with Extremadura but simply to be able spend more time with his grandchildren (five at present). He now lives in St Leonards-on-Sea on the south coast but makes regular trips back to Extremadura (although not normally when Brighton and Hove Albion FC are at home!). Click here to email Martyn.

John Whitehouse is from Oxford, England. He worked in the transport industry until he and his wife Janet, who is half-Spanish, decided to pursue their long-held dream and relocate to Spain, opting for the beauty and tranquillity of rural Extremadura. They bought a little house with a huge garden in the hills near the village of Alange, and now spend their spare time renovating and gardening, exploring the surrounding area, and improving their Spanish. They’ve been made very welcome by their Spanish neighbours and are delighted that their dream has finally been realised. Click here to email John.
