Garzopo - A new Holiday Home in OrgivaIn August 2014, after a very long search,we finally found a big house in Orgiva, directly in the centre by the church. It must have been among the first houses in Orgiva. The groundfloor used to be a carpentry, we found some tools still and other carpenter materials. It seemed in a good state and had lots of windows and therefore was very bright and airy.
The negotiations went slow and bumpy, since there were 12 different owners, but we managed and bought it.
The house faces south, overlooking the church and the Sierra Lujar in the distance. It also looked down into a rather neglected garden. We tried to find the owners to find out if we could buy that as well. It came to more negotiations and waiting, but finally we were lucky and could buy it in December.
The carpenter from times gone by was called Jose and had the nickname of “El Garzopo“, so the house was known and still is(!) as “ Joseico El Garzopo”. So now it´s name will be “El Garzopo“. When we told the granddaughter (also an old lady now) of Jose, that we will call the house that name, she nearly started to cry out of happiness!
El Garzopo is going to be a fantastic house! Downstairs will be a garage, the two upper stories living quarters and outside a big garden with pool. It will have 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so that 6 – 7 people will be able to find ample space. We will heat the water with solar panels, the livingroom will have a big chimney and we also install floorheating for the cooler months. All the woodwork will be done by a local carpenter and the windows will have doubleglazing, which is not usual for here.
When we started building in January no one realized in how bad a state the house was, but soon it turned out, that it was very bad and the more we ripped away, the more we realized just how bad the state of it was.
So little by little we actually pulled the whole house down inside , now, only the roof, the walls to the neighbours and the façade,( frontwall to the road) are left. The whole house and most of all the pillars have been given a steelgurdle , so that some neighbours now call it the “Eiffeltower”!
Have a look at the pictures, and from the second half of 2016 onwards you will be able to rent El Galsopo and we can tell you how this nickname came about.
