A wonderful country house for sale just 4km from Banyeres de Mariola, which is in the Alicante province of Spain. The house is down a track which is only 500m from the road, and the track has 6 houses on it so its nice and peaceful. Located just a 50 minutes drive from Alicante airport, and the same distance from the beaches and just 70-80 minutes from Valencia airport. There are also some fresh water pools " Pou Clar" a 20 minute drive away, just before you reach Ontinyent, great for sunbathing and swimming. The house is around 96m2, and is set in 2800m2 of fully fenced land ( chain link) and has stunning views out of all the windows. The house is all on one level, and was fully renovated in 2011, comprising of a new kitchen, bathroom, new tiled floor throughout and totally rewired with plenty of plug sockets. The property is powered by solar, (no electric bills!!) 10m2 of panels on a tracker (to catch the sun all day) 'outback' inverter and 'Rolls' batteries, there is also a generator for back up if needed. There is mains water to the house, and also a well. The house has 2 double bedrooms, large lounge with semi-open kitchen, and an arch way to the dining area, there is also a pantry leading off the kitchen, the bathroom is large and has shower, full sized bath, toilet and sink, there is an outside kitchen, which I use as a tack room. All windows are fitted with shutters and fly screens. Outside is a small private pool ( 2.50m x 3.50m) a seating area with concrete table and a gravelled area next to the pool for sunbathing. The rooms measurements are: Lounge 5.20m x 5.50m Dining room 3.65m x 3.20m Kitchen 2.20m x 4.20m Pantry 2.25m x 1.70m Bathroom 3.00m x 2.80m Bedroom '1' 4.40m x 4.20m Bedroom '2' 2.80m x 4.10m Tackroom 3.80m x 3.80m (possibly convert into anther bedroom?)

Outside there are raised beds, ideal for growing your own veg or planting flowers, and also seedless grape vines and fruit trees which were planted in 2014. The land is fully fenced, and divided into 2 paddocks, and there is also a schooling area, around 25m x 13m in size, although you don't need to have horse to live here. Access to both the front and rear of the property is by double gates.
