This shabby-chic, rustic Farmhouse is a newly built home, ready to be lived in!
It can be found hidden away, in a quiet, secluded part of The Gambia.
This property is a perfect opportunity for a self-sufficient smallholding, 2nd home or anyone who likes the idea of practically COST FREE LIVING!
It has 1 large bedroom with built-in bed, tables and shelving; a storage room; sitting room area with built-in prayer/sunset viewing chair and additional yoga space. An African style partial wall divides bedroom and seating area and there is a wash room with self operated flushing toilet and shower drain, plumbed into a 2mX2m sq underground septic tank. Basic solar power is installed.
Gambian houses rarely have a 'kitchen', as food is either cooked on a gas cylinder or over open fire. Gas cylinder is included and the solar power there could operate a hot plate or oven if you like.
There are Royal Blue mosquito nets fitted to each window and door, which serve to keep pests out, without reducing light inside the property.
It comes complete with a pulley-operated drinking/ washing water well that meets European safety standards. (There is no running water to the property. A borehole may be added for around £1000.)
The farmhouse sits within 30m by 30m sq of garden, amidst farmland. There is a verandah to the front that points at a wavering palmtree and a cashew nut tree- which plays host to many small, colourful birds.
The views are rural to all sides with just a couple of unoccupied farm buildings in sight. The garden is currently fenced with barbed wire.
There is plenty of space for a vegetable patch; small livestock; creating a flower garden or extending the house. Even a pool is pos!
Its location is tucked inland about 5km, adjacent to the coastline area of Tujering in the tiny village of Kunkajung Mariama. It is roughly 6km from the nearest white sandy beach and the busy fish landing market village of Tanji.
Lovely deserted beaches are also just a stones throw away.
It is not JUST property that's for sale here, its a whole new, relaxed lifestyle! If "The simple life" appeals, this place is for you!
The home is designed for 1-2 people, to be extremely low cost and economical, with Building Maintenance (new build so won't be any), Residency fee (aprox £50 per yr) and occasional septic tank emptying (aprox every 5yrs for 2 people), being the only real and noticable costs in living here.
Land tax is nominal. Mine comes to D100 per year (aprox £2.30).
Water is free in Gambia and no heating is required due to the reliable climate. The temperatures here average around 28C annually.
Gambia is an affordable, paradyllic, sub-tropical location that is drastically cheaper to live in than the UK, USA, Carribean and Europe. Offering endless beaches'; warm seas'; slower pace of life and stable weather, Gambia has no immigration bureaucracy and no hurricanes either!
There are NO RESTRICTIONS on foreigners buying or owning land here and the land can be used for ANYTHING you like. Gaining RESIDENCY is also no problem for anyone and your financial status isn't required to be disclosed.
I am the sole owner of the land and hold the official 'Transfer of Property' document. A sale in Gambia can happen the same day that you view the property if time is of the essence. However, if you prefer to hire a lawyer and go that route, you will have my full co-operation.
No land surrounding the farmhouse is lived on at present, making this a haven for peace and quiet. Mostly just the breeze and the birds and to hear. And the odd donkey!
A small hamlet with 6 shops to cover your very basic food needs is nearby and there's also a tiny market 2km away with fresh goods.
The people here are warm and friendly to foreigners.
I am a British ex-pat living here, happy to help with your re-location if you are an overseas buyer.
For any questions, please contact me at or WhatsApp message me on 02203364966.
This is a unique chance to get on the overseas property ladder with a quality new build, that's affordable to low earners or those who just don't like to spend more than they need to!
