Fantastic finca (farming house) harmoniously restored for sale in Benissa on the heights of Calpe on the Costa Blanca. This large countryside house in which charm and character are mixed is not isolated, it has some neighbours. It is located on a large plot of land, all in length, surrounded by a few vineyards and almond groves. Its dominant position almost at the top of a small hill endows it with superb panoramic views of the countryside down to the Mediterranean.
The house is in the heart of a garden a little bit left “in its natural state”, lined with a few hundred-year-old olive trees, lemon trees, cacti, a hive and a well.
The property also has a recently built swimming pool, with shower, a large covered terrace, a few garden sheds with unspecified function and a roofed barbecue. The house is on the edge of a quiet road, truly in the middle of the countryside quietness. Past the gate, you can park about ten cars on a large terrace next to the house.
Let us enter through the covered terrace. You will arrive in a large independent kitchen, offering a large dining area. To your left, a storage and laundry room. And on the right, the access to a dining room, followed by a first sitting room, with fireplace, then by a second sitting room. A large bathroom completes this level. Actually, everything is large in this house: the covered terrace is large, the kitchen is large, the sitting rooms are large, the bathroom is large and the bedrooms are large, but one.
And on the top floor, accessible by an indoors staircase, you will find four more bedrooms, one of which is small. Finally, a large two floors storage room could be converted into a guests apartment.
The house is south facing. Hot water is provided by an electric heater, while the pool is heated by solar energy, using a system that is a little craft, but works.
Most windows of the top floor have shutters and / or bars, whereas on the ground floor, the mostly tilt and turn windows have double glazing and blinds. An electrical heating is provided, though seldom needed in these latitudes. A phone line is connected, with fast internet capacity.
At your feet, large flat steps of land sometimes covered with almonds, vines or olive trees, spread out under your gaze, descending gently, always smaller, until they melt into the sea, in the morning sometimes caressed by a shawl of mist. Not far from the village, your day will marked be the rhythm of the crickets and nightingales song, and in the evening, on your terrace, the breeze will bring you the time from a bell tower, traversing the night gradually spreading below you, while on the Mediterranean, a reflection of the moon will glitter on the crest of the waves.
