Undoubtedly one of the more special homes on the northern costa Blanca. This award winning home oozes character with its stone feature walls, wood beamed ceilings and concealed lighting.
Situated less than 1km from the bustling village of Murla, this property welcomes you through its arched driveway into a tree lined and paved parking are large enough for four cars. A short flight of stairs takes you up to the covered entrance porch with its terracotta floor tiles, pot plants and beamed ceiling. Solid wood doors take you into a large entrance hall from which you can access all areas of the house. To the right are three double bedrooms all with central heating, air-conditioning, built in cupboards and wood beamed ceilings. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a bathroom with shower, toilet and basin, whilst the large main bedroom is en-suite and has its own wood burner, walk-in cupboard and recess currently used to house a desk but which is large enough to fit a lounge suite. Stairs take you up to the very large and unusual fourth bedroom with a store that could easily be converted into a third bathroom. Further down the passage is the large kitchen with its cream units, utility room and walk-in larder. The kitchen benefits from an electric oven, gas hob and space for a dining room table. The kitchen also leads out to a covered naya behind the house, perfect to escape the summer sun. At the end of the entrance hall is a large and bright lounge with wood burner, central heating, air-conditioning and views over the valley. Leading off from the lounge is a large conservatory that is used as the dining room as well as a second lounge. Large sliding doors lead out onto the patio and to the rustic pool. A covered naya with built in BBQ and kitchen overlooks the pool and provides cover outdoors for a dining table and garden furniture. The garden surrounding the house and pool is beautifully laid out and maintained with a number of quiet corners, grand staircases and a good variety of plants and trees.
The remainder of the property is home to a big variety of fruit trees including olives, apricots, apples and avocados. Water for irrigation is provided by two natural deep wells. The extra large garage under the house provides parking for at least three cars but can also be used as a storeroom, office or arts and crafts room.
This home has to be seen to be appreciated, specifically in terms of its warmth and character. It has also been designed to be eco-friendly and has been featured on TV programmes, as well as winning awards for its design that maintains a constant temperature within the home without having to use the central heating or air-conditioning. I n addition to the wells, the property also has solar heating to keep electric bills down and to keep the home energy efficient.
Viewing is highly recommended, the property is very accessible yet within walking distance of the village and only a short driver from the towns of Orba and Jalon.
