New homes where eagles fly – €45,000 in Sierra Escalona

New homes where eagles fly – €45,000 in Spain’s Sierra Escalona :: Brand new apartments with communal pool for only €45,000 in a key Spanish location. Between golden beaches and verdant mountain forests where eagles fly and wildcats roam. Released by Spain’s Sareb bank for international buyers.

Fixed at one third of the original construction cost, the prices are designed to attract international buyers to Torremendo, a “Real Spain” town in Alicante province. It is 20 minutes south of historic Orihuela City and only five minutes longer to the sandy beach holiday resorts of Orihuela Costa. International airports at Alicante and Murcia are 30 minutes’ drive.

Torremendo is a timeless village where already 39% of dwellings are second homes and 18% of residents are ex-pats, mainly German and British. They have been attracted because of the tranquil location that includes large lakes and forests of the Sierra Escalona. They like the fishin’, huntin’ and relaxin’ outdoors ambiance.

International brokers, Walker Property Spain have a good selection of the 2-bed, 2-bath apartments, including penthouses with rooftop solarium, shower and barbeque. Prices from €45,000 to €52,500. Local property professionals say the prices are 70% lower than those intended by the original developers. They equate to €371 per square metre.

Spain’s latest nature park designation

The development, Residential Mirador 1, has been built high above the lush Vega Baja plains. Home owners share a gated communal area with swimming pools, an ideal base for outdoor activities in what is expected to become Spain’s latest national nature park.

 The area is acclaimed for its wildlife, including rare migrating birds and Spain’s greatest concentration of wild cats.

The Sierra de Escalona is considered one of the most valuable ecological spaces in the region of Valencia. It has had international recognition for the many different species of birds of prey. Among them are buzzards and Northern goshawks as well as over a hundred pairs of eagle owls – one of the biggest communities in the whole of Europe, providing many sightings. There are breeding pairs of Bonelli’s Eagle and Golden Eagle.
