About this Country House
Country properties that are true walking distance from a town are hard to find. This Finca is a few minutes’ walk away from the lovely town of Sax but for that small distance there is a caveat, the property is close to the A31 Alicante to Madrid Autovia as can be seen from the photo section.
So, a finca where you don´t need a car, a rarity, the local supermarkets deliver so there is never a need to carry anything heavy and you can spend evenings in the town at one of the many bars and restaurants without having to worry about getting home safely.
The land is approximately 2,500m2 which is easily manageable, and it is fully fenced, so safe for dogs to run around to their hearts content. There are two entrances, one for vehicles and the other for pedestrians.
On the land are olive trees and other fruit trees and plenty of space for a vegetable garden, don´t worry, if you don´t fancy maintaining the land and crops there are plenty of farmers who will come and do it for you and split the profit.
Entering via the pedestrian way there is immediately a large, covered terrace with plenty of seating areas and large pine trees to create areas of natural shade for the two hottest months of the year.
To the right-hand side is a pergola with a large table and chairs that the family use regularly for comfortable outdoor dining, two hammocks, perfect for sleeping off the meal and enjoying the views and there is also a BBQ. A carport is also near here.
To the rear of the house is another large terrace, perfect as a solarium if you like to sunbathe and there is also enough space to put in a temporary swimming pool, so it is perfect to store it in the winter months and not having to maintain it.
There is a large storage room, where the batteries of the solar panels are located as this is the no-bills electricity supply. The thermos is self-sufficient, that is, it recharges itself to have hot water.
A wooden cabin with large windows has been built to the side of the property that is currently being used as an outdoor lounge, but could be used as a workshop.
The property's water is for irrigation, but it is treated so it is perfectly safe to drink straight from the tap.
At the front of the house, where the outdoor dining table is, there is a larger storage room and another smaller one, one of which is being used as a woodshed.
The house has two bedrooms, the main one and a smaller one, a spacious living-dining room with a wood-burning stove, an open kitchen and a complete bathroom with a shower. It is a small, but is a very cosy house with delightful outside space.
