Finca in a rural setting for sale in Benissa.


Just a few minutes drive from the centre of Benissa, on a very large south-facing plot, this wonderful old finca of mellow stone construction enjoys commanding views across the valley to the Sierra Bernia Mountains, Calpe's Ifach Rock and the sea beyond. A long gravel driveway leads to a car port and a vast parking area and a circular turning area. There are two paved terraces in front of the arched 'Riu-Rau' and raised circular patio leading to the entrance into the lounge. A gate leads into the huge enclosed pool area which includes a built-in barbeque, a dining gazebo and a Jacuzzi/hot tub; all enclosed within stone walls with decorative metal balustrades.

Arched French doors lead into the split-level lounge which has pitched and beamed ceilings and two wood-burning stoves, double arched doors lead into the charming dining room, again with pitched and beamed ceiling and a feature stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove. From here is access to the large, fully fitted kitchen of white hi-gloss units and dark blue speckled quartz granite worktops and a comprehensive range of quality appliances. A large antique, studded timber door leads out onto an enchanting, paved courtyard with raised stone planters, a metal-framed pergola with a sun awning, and a fountain water feature; the whole being beautifully planted and fully enclosed by mellow stone walls. Within the courtyard, a heavy antique door opens into a stone built guest casita consisting of two bedrooms and a shower room. Also accessed from the courtyard is a large storeroom and further guest accommodation consisting of: a fitted kitchen, lounge/diner, 'Riu-Rau' arch and French doors onto a patio facing the driveway, a door from the diner into a lobby, shower room, door and steps down to a bed/sitting room with a fitted kitchen and arch & French doors, as above.

The whole accommodation oozes traditional Spanish charm, and includes many special features such as beamed ceilings throughout and antique joinery etc. Outside the large flat plot slopes gently towards the south and is planted with many mature Mediterranean species of trees and shrubs.
