Property Description

A unique 1000 Ha estate for sale with permission to develop into a tourist complex LA PUENTEZUELA Introduction This project offers you the possibility to develop an eye catching real estate plan at one of the most beautiful locations in the heart of Andalucía: the Serranía de Ronda, at a 5 minute drive from de medieval city of Ronda. Ronda is a "Pueblo Blanco" that, despite of its great attraction to tourísts, remained one of the best kept, and thanks to the preservation, has become one of the most renewed, medieval white villages in this region. Ronda has developed a perfect infra-structure and therefore can be easily reached by car, Bus and train. It only takes 45 minutes to reach the world-famous harbor of Marbella: Puerto Banus and the beaches of the Costa del Sol. Next to this it is only a one hour drive to the airports of Malaga, Seville as well as Gibraltar. The project, located in the valley south of Ronda, offers through its unique situation and differences in altitude, in fact at all locations within the project, spectacular and breathtaking views on the various surrounding villages. The topography secures a smooth integration of future buildings into the countryside. The site for the project is part of the communities of Ronda, Júzcar, Cartajima & Alpandeire and consists, according to the GPS measurement of a surface of approximately 1.000 hectares. At this moment it is legally owned by Spanish Ltd. which was founded in 1983 out of a legacy has managed to obtain a land re-classification and the necessary permits for a tourist project to be constructed on the site. The next step in the project is to submit a specific plan for such a tourist complex so that the building permit can be provided, such a plan needs to suit the specialist business objectives of the future owner and is beyond the scope . Unlimited possibilities The project offers you, as a buyer/developer, an endless range of possibilities. It is already allowed to construct 218.000 m2 (21,8 ha) of floor space on the 545,3 ha of the estate that is situated in the municipality of Ronda. This develop permission of the Ronda townhall comes with the designation of “Turístico y Social sobre Actuación Urbanística” and is demonstrated in the attached copies of communal papers and permits. Luxurious villas, a hotel, bungalows, studio's, a shopping mall with surrounding service centers such as a gas station, sport and health centre, wellness complex, hunting lodges and even a camping site, form all part of the alternative options for a tourist complex based on the municipal decision. It is to be expected that general purpose facilities such as swimming pool and tennis courts, but also a possible petrol station and alikes (as health care centre) can be constructed on top of the área mentioned in the permit, so that the allocated surface of 218.000 m2 can probably be fully dedicated to living quarters (bungalows, lodges, apartments and hotel accommodation). Ronda is an attractive, lively and well known tourist destination with pleasant surroundings; visitors come from all over the world. A new tourist complex could benefit from the existing exclusive Ronda "trademark" and appeal to local (escape the busy coast); national and international markets (do Ronda and surroundings like Arriate, Setenil, or famous Grazalema and relax at our resort). There are, to our knowtedge, no similar projects planned in the area so that the new resort gains a preferential market position. Samples of development options that are available to the new owner Bungalows, such as illustrated in the artist impression available in the same folder: As earlier mentioned, the use of such buildings, with an original spanish “Finca” lookalike would make the project interact discreetly with the natural surroundings. This development is scheduled to be constructed on the North westen half of the site as shown on the map, because the project is cut in two parts by the A-369 road from Ronda to Algeciras/Gibraltar. -Rural tourism through the (partial) reconstruction of the old "finca" (farmhouse) with the existing horseboxes and stables - The Finca has already obtained the municipal approval of the community of Ronda to develop and build a tourist-complex because there is a big demand in this región for that kind of activities. Such a complex could contain holiday houses from various categories, a shopptng mall, a sport and leisure complex for sports as volleyball, indoor football, tennis, fitness activities etc. and for example a nigh-end, tropical swimming pool. -Forestry: from the concept of environmental and sociological entrepreneurship in various parts of the estate's' forests and trees have already been planted. –Hunting. (Rabbits, pheasants and partridges, deer, mountain goats...). –Agricultural development fitting into the regional culture. and surroundings such as olives and vineyards. –Possibility to transform fíat pieces of land into camping sites (about 10 ha). –Possible development of a 9-hole golf course. Descriptíon of the estate The estate is located at about 5 kilometers south of Ronda, at a distance of 40 km land inwards from Marbella and about 100 km from Malaga in the heart of Andalucía, Spain. The estate is cut in two parts by the main road (A-369) that runs from Ronda to Algeciras (Gibraltar area) as illustrated on the amendment. The surface is mountainous with a difference in height from 800 to 1.450 meter above sea level, altitudes which obviously guarantee magnificent breathtaking views of the straít of Gibraltar. The slopes are covered with oíd, green oaks and the present owner has reforested several parts with new oaks and pines, again with changing success due to the various conditions throughout the estáte. The complete estate is fenced and several gravel tracks cross it, of which 4 gíve entrance to the road from Algeciras to Ronda. Each entrance is closed by steel fencing and the main entrance is closed by an electrically operated remote controlled gate. The little “Arroyo de Las Culebras” stream has its source within the boundaries of the estate and supplies running fresh water throughout the year, fed by20 natural springs. The existing farmhouse within the proberty contains approximately 10 hectares of flat fields with young olive trees on it. Description of the present buildings Turning off the road from Ronda to Algeciras, we arrive at the rnain entrance from where a fully paved road of about 700 mts leads to a coupleof buidíngs as shown in the pictures, being: A partially renovated typical spanish “Cortijo” with storage spaces, a stable for 10 horses and a garage for four cars, completely equipped with running water and electrics. A main house of about 440m2 with several bed and bathrooms, a big paved, tiled terrace and an outdoor solarheated pool, along with a separate guesthouse near the pool. Industrial complex based on concrete underground of aprox. 1.500 m2, of which 1.105m2 is built on. Equipped with running water and several powersupplies. A broken-down farmhouse of about 150m2 on a distance of 2kms away from the main road which is suitable for restoration or renovation with its own independent water supply. Also an 80m3 water reservoir with a submersible pump at a depth of 75 mts is present and is supplying of drinking water. This installation can supply irrigation for for 10ha of the flat meadows or other agricultuarl use. The next step in the approval process is to develop a concrete and precise construction plan; such a building plan will have to be dedicated for the intended use by the new owner. He has to decide whether the estate will be used for a luxury hunting resort, a 9 hole golfcourse or whatever else the business might be, provided it fits within the current land classification. It is therefore understandable that the current owner wants to sell the property at this stage, when the future owner still has full control over what he wants to be buildt and for what purpose he wants to use the land, operating a tourist complex is beyond the scope of business activities of the present owner. Based on the detailed plans the buiding permit can be obtained. Assuming that the new ownerhas a fair idea of what he wants, the building permits should be available in about 3 months from the start of the development plan. Taking control of the estate. The property is owned by a legal, Spanish entity of which all shares will be made available to the new owner, against payment of the purchase price. A reasonable time for the present owner to move from the estate should be agreed between both barties. Costs and levies/taxes of the transaction are for the account of purchaser. Due diligence It is suggested for seriuosly interested buyers, once it has been established that their development plans are in principle compatible with the existing permits, to undertake a due diligence to visit the estate.
