About this Country House
This is a large rustic country house with mature garden, located in a small hamlet about 15 minutes drive from the towns of Pinoso and Monovar.
The property is a south facing detached house with a bodega located in a peaceful setting as part of a small hamlet. This traditional house has thick stone walls and beamed ceilings throughout, yet has been brought up to date with oil central heating & a wood burning stove, mains electric, pressurised water, water softener, septic tank and Internet.
Of the total 360m² of useable space, the house has 200 m² living area plus 160m² currently used as storage and a workshop. There are 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a downstairs and upstairs lounge, a dining room, kitchen and scullery. There are 3 more rooms under restoration that would make a kitchen-dining room, a lounge with extra wood burner, and an under stairs cloakroom.
The property has a walled garden of 50m² with a lemon tree, vine & wood storage. A well storing a reserve of 30,000 litres of water. The large south facing roof, newly insulated & retiled, is perfect for a solar panel array.
The layout of the house is essentially 2 houses side by side, so it is ideal if family are visiting or even to turn into holiday rental if more work is done.
The bodega forms the rear one third of the house and is the oldest part of the building. The ground floor is currently used as storage and as a garage, the upper floor is empty offering potential for development.
The garden of 650m2 is level and planted with pine, pepper trees, mulberries, cypress, a palm, acacia and an olive tree. It provides a shady retreat in the summer, but also a sunny haven in winter. There are stunning views to the hills and olive groves to the east from its elevated position, making this a special place.
(There are two adjacent terraces for sale if more land is required. Together they add up to 3,000m²- these are separate from the house sale)
This is a superb area for walking, rock climbing, road & mountain biking. Only 15 minutes from either of the market towns of Monóvar or Pinoso and 45 minutes from Alicante airport.
