Detached finca for sale in Benissa. Located in highly desirable Benissa, this completely renovated finca offers very spacious accommodation with fabulous open countryside views and in excess of 11.000m2 of land, including extensive vineyards.
As you arrive at this finca from the winding country lane between Benissa and the coast, a broad gravelled forecourt, dominated by a ancient carob tree, provides parking for several vehicles.
Adjacent to the parking area is a large detached garage, which was once used for pressing grapes and storing several barrels of wine!
From the forecourt, vehicular and pedestrian gates open into an elongated courtyard terrace and the main entrance to this truly stunning reformed finca.
Heavy ornate arched wrought-iron doors with double glazing open into an entrance hallway with pitched and beamed ceiling, marble twin basins and Spanish-tiled murals adding to the abundant character. To the right, part-glazed French doors open into the extended lounge and dining room with pitched and beamed ceiling, arched windows which run the entire length of the room, beneath which are low-level storage units with ornate tiled tops, ideal for seating. To one end of the room an exposed stone wall, marble sink and built-in brick BBQ add to the existing charm.
From here, an original heavy wooden door opens into a particularly large kitchen/diner with open fireplace and a fabulous new fitted kitchen with dark wood-effect base units beneath granite worktops, integrated fridge-freezer, washing-machine, dishwasher and twin marble sinks. There are attractive ingresses in the walls, with original ornate Spanish tiles.
A broad opening from the kitchen leads into a lobby area, accessing a storage room and a shower room with large walk-in, mosaic tiled shower, basin set into a marble-topped vanity unit with illuminated mirror above, and WC. Stairs from here lead up to a hallway which provides access to double bedroom 2 with built-in wardrobes; the spacious master bedroom with pitched and beamed ceiling, several charming small windows with wooden shutters, built-in wardrobes, a sofa area and en-suite shower room with particularly large walk-in shower, twin basins set into marble-topped vanity unit with large illuminated mirror above and built-in cupboard; the guest shower room; and the unusual family suite, which includes double bedroom 3 leading on into double bedroom 4 with built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room.
Back on the lower level, from the dining area a door opens into a beautiful courtyard with half-tiled walls, stone floors, corner butlers sink, and open roof taking advantage of the Mediterranean blue skies and wonderful climate. A door from here leads into double bedroom 5 with barrelled and beamed ceiling, built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room with walk-in shower with glass screen and contemporary basin and WC.
From the entrance hallway, large wooden panelled doors lead to a second lounge area with pitched and beamed ceiling, corner marble basin, ornate tiled wall features and a small glass briquette wall. From here a door opens into a modern shower room with large walk-in shower.
Ornate wrought-iron balustraded stairs lead down to double bedroom 6 with characterful brick floors and exposed brick walls, with built-in wardrobes and brick seating feature. A further door from here leads into the stunning double bedroom 7 with original wine press and elevated bed, accessed via five brick steps to either side of the bed. Built-in cupboards and a charming window flank this unique bed area. Arched wooden doors lead out to a charming courtyard and covered naya with pitched and beamed ceiling, two storage rooms and a further modern shower room.
Outside, and across from the entrance hallway, is the detached BBQ/games house, accessed through original wrought-iron and glazed doors. This very large room has high pitched and beamed ceilings, tiled floors with a corner BBQ with original chimney, brick worktops with paella grill, twin marble sinks set into marble worktops and a separate marble basin with brass taps. Four double ornate wrought-iron and glazed French doors and a separate window dominate and flood the room with light, tiled murals enhancing the original charm and character. The private L shaped pool is adjacent to the BBQ house, surrounded by spacious terracotta tiled sunbathing terrace and separate pool-side casita housing a shower, twin basins set into marble worktops, WC and storage cupboards, as well as an outside shower.
The pool and BBQ house are enclosed by rendered walls and wrought-iron balustrading, presenting a beautiful courtyard ambience, with dwarf walls beside the balustrading providing additional seating areas. A broad wrought-iron gate from here leads through to a covered naya with pitched and beamed ceiling and arched cut out wall features peer through to the gravelled gardens with various fruit trees and the extensive vineyards beyond. To the right of here is a separate paddock area and stable, ideal for keeping one or more horses.
Adjacent to the pool, a wrought-iron gate opens into a landscaped garden area with English roses, jasmine, date palms and grapevines, and terracotta and gravelled pathways leading through.
The very large detached garage provides additional space for parking or has the potential to be converted into an indoor gymnasium or spa area.
This finca provides exceptional and spacious accommodation. The original features and charm have been retained and its characteristics include everything you would want and expect from a quality reformation. There are three natural wells on the land, thick original beams, terracotta and porcelain tiled floors, window shutters, ornate Spanish tiled murals, etc. However, there is mains water, contemporary bathrooms, and the internal electrics have been upgraded to a very high standard and capacity. The vineyards are mature and healthy and could provide a very good income, should this be your choice, and the finca could very easily be managed as a Bed and Breakfast, Casa Rural or Luxury Retreat.
The property truly needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
