Superb detached 4 bedroom country villa with workshop, hobby room, above ground dip pool and a jacuzzi hot tub, situated near to the village of Las Pocicas and around 8km from the popular market town of Albox where all amenities can be found. With a build size of 158m2, this two-storey villa is set in a huge plot of just under 18.000m2 with magnificent far-reaching views.
The entrance gates open onto a graveled driveway leading to a brick-built carport with twin arches providing two parking bays. The graveled area offers plenty of space for additional parking including a bay large enough for a camper van. From here a wooden gate leads through to a beautiful 90m2 tiled courtyard garden with raised beds planted with native shrubs & flowering plants, and a feature water fountain. The 6-person jacuzzi is set under a pergola with a retractable awning for shade, and there is a brick-built barbecue and a seating area which is also shaded by a retractable awning for the summer months.
The courtyard gives access to an outbuilding that houses the 12.95m2 workshop and adjoining 12.95m2 hobby/craft room. The workshop is fitted with workbenches, and the hobby room is fitted with low-level storage cupboards with plenty of worktop space, a double sink, a washing machine, and a window overlooking the garden. A pathway leads around the outbuilding to a kennel and storage shed and continues through the garden which is planted with mature trees, flowering shrubs, cacti, and grasses, all watered via an irrigation system. To the front of the villa is a fish pond shaded by a large yucca, and to the end of the garden is a pretty pergola with outstanding views over open countryside to the mountains beyond. The land to the rear of the villa is a hillside, and part of the land from the front of the villa down to the road is planted with pine trees.
To the front of the villa is a large part-glazed covered porch that stretches the full width of the house offering a lovely area to sit and relax. A door opens into a spacious lounge with a built-in fan-assisted wood burner and custom-built storage/display cupboard. Large windows create a lovely bright room with great views over the garden. Part glazed doors lead through to a dual aspect dining room with patio doors leading out to the courtyard garden. An archway leads through to an Italian design kitchen which is fitted with modern units, a 5 ring stainless steel gas hob with extractor, a Smeg electric oven, fridge freezer, ceiling fan, and down-lighters over the work surfaces.
From the lounge, a glazed door leads out to a hallway that gives access to three bedrooms and a shower room comprising a tiled shower cubicle with glazed doors, WC, and basin set in a marble-topped vanity unit. Bedroom 1 is a single room with a wall of wardrobes/storage units – this room is currently used as a study. Bedroom 2 is a large double room with a ceiling fan, fitted wardrobes, and an electric wall-mounted radiator. Bedroom 3 is a large double room currently set up as a twin room with fitted wardrobes, an under-stairs storage area, an electric radiator, and a ceiling fan.
From the hall, a wide marble staircase leads past a feature stained glass window to the master suite which comprises a very spacious bedroom with air conditioning, a wall of built-in wardrobes, and an ensuite shower room with a large shower cubicle with sliding glazed doors, WC, basin set in a marble-topped vanity unit with mirror above, matching storage unit and an electric heated towel radiator. Patio doors lead out to a balcony terrace with stunning views.
