The south facing property has its own private tarmac drive. The entrance area is dry stone walled with a fine old wood garden door entrance and parking for 3 cars.
The property is an old converted farmhouse built of stone, probably over 200 years old with traditional Spanish terracotta floor and roof tiles in grounds of 3,478 sq metres on its hillside looking towards the coast.
The house has 3 bedrooms: 2 large bedrooms with built in wardrobes on the right side of the house (one ensuite bathroom), a good sized fully fitted kitchen dining room (with double doors to the outside patio) and a small room with a toilet and washbasin; a large reception room (with double glazed doors from the naya) and a second reception room/3rd bedroom currently used as a second reception room/games room, with double glazed doors onto another small patio), plus a walk in utility room with washbasin. . On the upper floor, a very large 4th bedroom with extensive wardrobes (with French windows onto a small balcony) and ensuite fully tiled bathroom. All floors are traditionally tiled. All rooms have extensive beams and doors and windows have wrought iron security fittings.
At the south front of the house, there is a large covered veranda (naya) and outside the kitchen/dining area a good sized grape vine covered patio for dining. All these external areas are floor tiled in traditional Spanish style. To the rear of the house, there is a small bougainvillea shaded patio
with tiled seating and access to a small outhouse where the gas heating/hotwater boiler is located. To the right of the naya there is a tiled barbecue, next to an old traditional bread oven.
The easy managed garden is terraced from the old farming days and Moorish influence and sunk into the terracing is a large swimming pool that is beautifully landscaped and located so as to be out of sight from the house. The pool is fully tiled with a filtered waterfall, surrounded by palms, oleanders and bougainvillea etc. The garden has tiled seating areas, three ponds with goldfish and water lilies and a restored wooden bridge.
There is a large outhouse with laundry facilities, workbenches and shelving for garden tools and pool equipment, storage etc. Behind the outhouse there is an old well.
The terraced garden has a good variety of mediterranean flowering bushes (jasmine, jacaranda, habiscus, oleander, mimosa, malvaviscus, brunfelsia, bougainvilia etc), orange and lemon trees, some nispero fruit trees, figs, an apricot and a small walnut tree.
The property is a rural location with mountain views, not overlooked and only two or three minutes from the excellent village of Jesus Pobre, with its famed weekly Sunday market; and 20 minutes from Javea and Denia for their beaches and shopping. Along the coast there are many quiet coves for swimming and surfing with sailing in Javea and Denia. Gata de Gorgos, renowned for its basket work, is 5 minutes away. There is a golf club 5 minutes away and another also with tennis courts in Javea.
