For sale direct from the owners!
This beautifully presented villa sits beside the Pedrera lake offering peace and tranquillity and a great deal of privacy and seclusion. Whilst the location is the perfect place to escape the stress of modern life, the house is far from isolated, located just off the road between Torremendo and San Miguel de Salinas.
The house is set very well back from the road yet benefits from the access to both centres for shopping, medical facilities, bars and restaurants.
The views are panoramic and the design of the property maximises this with great views from most of the rooms within the villa, especially the living rooms which connect really well with the terrace and gardens oriented to the lake.
The property is presented beautifully but it is the care and attention to detail of the finishes, the materials used and the design of the layout which make this property stand out against the “standard” villas available for sale.
The owners have created a walk through video of the property which can be seen here…
Layout of the villa
Set across one floor, the property flows beautifully and with no stairs, any future worries over access for elderly less mobile visitors can be dismissed.
The layout also makes the most of views and with lots of outside space, the connection between inside and outside is almost seamless.
You enter the property into a welcoming hallway with a guest W.C. shower room and storage. The hall opens into the living accommodation and you are immediately struck by the views across the lake and the open aspect you can enjoy from the property.
The living and dining space is open plan but is clearly defined to give a sense of separation to individual areas. The triple aspect creates a feeling of light and space and of course, you get to see the terrific views!
The fireplace creates a focal point in the living room with a feature stone wall. The living area and the dining space all have easy access to the terrace which is perfect for entertaining and maximising the use of the terrace and gardens.
The kitchen is tucked away around the corner but is open plan to the rest of the living space with a stylish breakfast bar to separate the spaces.
The kitchen is finished to perfection – contemporary styled units, granite work surfaces, an island unit as well as the breakfast bar, plenty of storage space and all the usual appliances including integrated 2 x ovens, microwave, double fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
A utility room off the kitchen is home to more storage and washing machine etc.
The layout and positioning of bedrooms has also been cleverly considered – the master bedroom suite and a 4th bedroom are located on one side of the villa and two guest bedrooms and a shower room are located on the other side of the villa. This gives owners and guests a degree of privacy.
The master bedroom opens onto the lakeside terrace and benefits from great views with a dual aspect.
The 4th bedroom is located next to the master bedroom suite. This room could easily be added to the master bedroom if a separate dressing room or private sitting room were desired.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both a good size and share a guest shower room.
Outside space and gardens
There are several terraces located around the house to provide sufficient options to catch some winter sun or to enjoy some summer shade.
The main terrace is located off the living spaces and the connection between inside and outside is a key to the success of this design – open the doors to the living room and the space available triples!
This is perfect for entertaining but it also makes for an easy life during the summer months – the difference between inside and outside merges and even in the cooler months, it creates more living space with a roof to escape any rain or dew.
The terraces lead to the gardens which are low maintenance with a number of indigenous plants including some well-established palm trees, grape vines and other mature plants and shrubs.
The gardens are simply presented to maximise the views across the protected land to the lake. This is a great source of wildlife and provides great walking access to the waterside itself and the surrounding countryside.
A wooden chalet is located within the garden and is ideal for accommodation extra guests or it can also work as the ideal adventure space for children and quiet space for teenagers.
In the lakeside garden is a full size Petanque court.
The views extend to the mountains in the distance which provide the backdrop for this beautiful part of the Alicante countryside.
An outdoor kitchen is a must in Spain and this house comes with a kitchen area, ideal for BBQ’s and it also has a built in Pizza oven!
The sunsets are a delight – the panorama changes colour from the azure blue waters of the lake to the rosy, pink tints to the surrounding mountains. Just enjoy the views, the sound of birds singing and the local wildlife enjoying the tranquillity.
The property is accessed via a gated entrance driveway from the tarmac road so no need for an expensive 4 x 4 or maintaining country tracks. As you approach the villa, there is plenty of space for parking several cars.
