A delightful and charming finca (farmhouse) completely rebuilt to the highest standards, just over 12 years ago, on the site of the original property which was some 150 years old. It offers the peace of rural life (without being remote) together with proximity to Benissa’s amenities, with the shops, restaurants, beaches, golf courses and marinas of Moraira, Calpe and Altea only a few minutes drive away.
There are hand-made terracotta floor tiles throughout and under floor heating downstairs and central heating upstairs - 2 totally separate systems which can be run together or independently. Most of the windows are double glazed and there are wooden beams and barrel ceilings throughout the house.
Electric gates lead into the extensive grounds and entry to the house itself is through impressive double doors within a large open naya - into the hallway, which is large enough to be used as an office.
The living room with its wooden beams, barrel ceiling and Tosca stone feature fireplace, (which houses a large wood-burning stove) is made bright and airy by the large wooden frame French doors, leading straight out into the grounds and on to the pool terrace. A large archway leads through to the dining room, complete with an original feature stone wall.
The bespoke fitted kitchen can be accessed from the hall and has masses of cupboard space, a breakfast bar and an informal dining area, as well as access to the garage, which offers enough space to be also used as a storage area. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and sizeable ensuite bathroom with bath and shower cubicle.
A beautiful open feature staircase leads to a galleried landing from which a further 3 double bedrooms and bathrooms can be accessed.
The smallest of the bedrooms has fitted wardrobes and adjacent bathroom and linen cupboard. Bedroom 2, which is double aspect and also has a balcony, has fitted wardrobes and a full ensuite bathroom complete with corner bath and shower.
Back along the landing, a door leads into the huge master bedroom suite which includes a lounge area, spacious walk-in dressing room and large ensuite shower room with twin sinks and double shower cubicle. This master bedroom is light and airy having 3 windows, one looking out over the pool area, the other 2 look towards the tree-lined drive and surrounding countryside.
The house is surrounded by its own grounds (approx. 5,000m2) and offers complete privacy within an easily maintained garden. There is a beautiful kidney shaped pool (with lights) an eating area & several sunbathing & relaxing areas. The rear of the house has an outside dining area, overlooked by the kitchen and steps leading down to more terraces.
