This charming traditional cottage is located within a small residential hamlet, surrounded by beautiful countryside but is less than 5mins drive from the bustling town of Los Montesinos. In addition, there are a couple of bar/restaurants within walking distance of this cottage which makes it the ideal way to enjoy the semi-rural life without feeling isolated or cut off from facilities.
This hamlet of homes is located on urban land and gives you the security of being within a small community of neighbours (Spanish, French and English) so this makes it ideal if the house is to be used as a permanent home (integrate into the community) or as a holiday home (you have neighbours who can look after the house in your absence).
Because this house is not on an urbanization you don’t have to pay for expensive community services, communal pools etc.
Los Montesinos is a bustling town with plenty of bars and restaurants from which to choose as well as all the usual facilities such as schools, banks, shops and sporting options. The town has a very traditional Spanish feel but the locals are welcoming and friendly. The town is well placed to enjoy the best of the local Blue Flag beaches at Guadamar, la Mata and Torrevieja.
Equally, international travel is easy with both Alicante and Murcia airports within 30mins.
The property itself represents great value for money and would make the ideal permanent or holiday home.
The main home has an entrance driveway with off road parking and gates. There is a front terrace area with a table and chairs and a covered area ideal for the hotter months. The front door opens into a large entrance hall which is a great space to use as an office or as a separate living space.
The hall leads into a spacious living room with a wood burning stove. This is a light and bright room with double doors into the kitchen/dining room.
The kitchen and dining room is beautifully fitted with plenty of storage and the dining area leads onto the rear patio terrace.
The main house has two double bedrooms and they share a bathroom which is large with a full size bath and a walk in shower.
The rear courtyard is a great place to relax and enjoy the complete privacy – space for dining, space for sunbathing and there is even space for a small swimming pool or a hot tub or Jacuzzi.
Guest Apartment – at the end of the courtyard is a self-contained apartment with a large double bedroom on the first floor. An en-suite bathroom is well fitted and gives any visitors the privacy and separation which helps guest and hosts!
On the ground floor of the apartment is a large space which is very flexible – it currently has a range of kitchen units and a WC so it can be adapted to create a kitchen/dining/living space for guests or it can also be used as further accommodation for the main house. If you have extended family, it can also be a great way to provide space and privacy for a teenager or other relatives.
