Benefits Of Living In Spanish Cave Houses

What Are The Benefits Of Living In Spanish Cave Houses

If you have never considered looking at Spanish cave houses, then after reading this, then you just might consider them. The reason for this is that they have a number of key benefits that far outweigh more conventional property. So let's take a look at some of these benefits.

Cheaper to buy

Spanish cave houses are cheaper to buy than their modern counterparts in that you can pick up a 3 bedroom cave dwelling that will require a little work for around 30- 40% less than you would pay for a modern house.

Uniqueness

The manner in which each cave dwelling has been crafted out of the rock, means that no cave house is the same. Therefore you are not in danger of ending up with the same layout as your neighbour unlike more conventional housing. So if uniqueness is what you're after, then it could be for you.

Practical

Practicality is one of the biggest benefits of Spanish cave houses in that because they are built into the rock, they maintain an all round temperature of between 16-19 degrees. This is great in the summer when the temperature gets very hot because you have no need for air conditioning, therefore, you will be saving money. Recently renovated cave dwellings can also come with cavity insulated walls, extra roof insulation and even double glazing, providing even further cost cuts. Another benefit is that they are extremely low maintenance, so if you are not into DIY, then cave dwellings are ideal.

All mod cons

You could be forgiven for thinking that living in Spanish cave houses are like stepping back the stone age. In fact, they can come with all mod cons such as electricity, water, sewerage, wood burning fires, even telephone, broadband and satellite TV. So although they have an old world charm, they enable the owner to have the best of both worlds.
