country houses for sale in alhama de murcia
Alhama De Murcia
We are delighted to offer for sale this FOUR BEDROOM, TWO BATHROOM striking country dwelling situated in the hamlet of La Costera, approximately 10km from the popular Spanish town of Alhama de Murcia. Approximately 10 minutes by car in the opposite direction you will find Librilla - both towns are fully equipped with all of the necessary amenities. The is a very popular cafe/bar a short distance from the property, and The Caverna restaurant a little further along the same road.The current owners have undertaken considerable work on the property including upgrading the plumbing and electrics, and the creation of a GYM and a SELF CONTAINED APARTMENT within the substantial walled/fenced/gated plot. You enter the grounds through double gates where you are greeted by the attractive detached home which has unique brick and stone featurework, where you MUST take a look at the carved stone chimney! Proudly nestled in the middle of the plot, the GARDENS wrap all around the house with the front being mainly laid to gravel with parking for several vehicles. In the right corner there is the DETACHED APARTMENT which we will come to later in the description.Before entering the property you have the tranquil front TERRACE which spans the full width of the house, and is the perfect place to sit with a cool drink on those hot Summer evenings. You will find bags of space for dining and lounging furniture where you can relax in total privacy.You enter the house into a large OPEN PLAN LIVING ROOM/DINING ROOM/KITCHEN on the ground floor, a lovely bright and airy space which makes great family living or a fantastic entertaining area. As well as the FULLY FITTED KITCHEN, the living area benefits from ceiling fans, air conditioning and a feature fireplace which houses the wood burner.Stairs lead upto the FIRST FLOOR, where off the landing you will find THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS, with ceiling fans and also a large FAMILY BATHROOM with a full size bath with shower over. Back onto the landing, double doors lead out onto a pretty BALCONY which overlooks the front garden area, and the countryside beyond.OUTSIDE, both sides of the property are gravelled with plants and shrubs, around to the REAR GARDEN which has been levelled and prepared to give the new owners a blank canvas on which to create their dream Spanish garden. All you need is your imagination - you could make a sun deck with artificial grass for low maintenance, or do you prefer a more Spanish style rustic garden, with swathes of vines and bougainvillea, citrus fruit, olive and almond trees? Perhaps a vegetable plot to live "The Good Life" - this plot really does give you so much scope to put your own mark on it.At the bottom of the garden you first have the POOL HOUSE which is perfect for storing garden tools and furniture and an ideal "man cave":). Next to it there is a BESPOKE GYM which is a self contained dwelling in itself with power and light and is currently kitted out with gym equipment, but could easily be made into additional accommodation or office.The private SWIMMING POOL is fully fenced with two gated accesses and terracing all around for sun beds and furniture, and a GAZEBO offering shade from the midday sun. The benefit of the swimming pool being privately accessed is that it can either be used solely by the main house, or if you intend to use the separate apartment as a small business venture then the apartment can be offered with a private pool (and therefore demand a higher weekly rent).The "piece de resistance" has to be the DETACHED CASITA which the current owners have thoughtfully transformed into a totally SELF CONTAINED ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT. Immaculately decorated throughout and benefitting from air conditioning and ceiling fans, this beautiful addition to the main house is situated far enough away from it to offer privacy for both homeowner and guest(s), and there is a cottage style fenced garden area to the front. Whether it is paying guests, friends or family coming to visit or additional accommodation for blended family living, whoever is lucky enough to stay here will be delighted with the spacious accommodation it offers. Situated all on one level and being open plan, it is also suitable for those with mobility issues. The LIVING ACCOMMODATION opens into the LIVING AREA and DINING AREA, with the FITTED KITCHEN equipped with everything you need. The BEDROOM is double in size and is a separate room as is the SHOWER ROOM with a large walk in shower.Country homes such as this which offer tranquility and privacy, yet only a few minutes away from two vibrant Spanish towns are rare to find, especially at this price so we urge you to view at your earliest convenience.
