This is a very well reformed village home located in the village of El Contador, close to Chirivel. El Contador is a pretty village with stunning mountain surroundings and the current owners chose this location because of the wide selection of outdoor pursuits, including walking & mountain biking. The owners, their friends & family have all used this property as a holiday home to enjoy both the weather and tranquilllity but also to enjoy the outdoor activities on offer. The Sierra Maria mountain ranges are both beautiful and exciting to explore. The village offers basic facilities with a general store & bar whilst the next town of Chirivel offers more facilities, including a Summer swimming pool open from June to September. The village is around 50 minutes inland from the coast of Aguilas with the airports of Almeria & Murcia San Javier around 1 hour 30 minutes away and Alicante airport reached within a 2 hour drive.
The property sits in the centre of the village and has been completely reformed internally. Inside you will find a large garage, currently used as a store and utility room which leads to a fitted kitchen with appliances. From the kitchen is a downstairs bathroom with full bath as well as a back door leading to the spacious rear terrace.
Outside is a large terrace with table tennis table, plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the sun, a log store and then moving through an archway, another large terrace with raised planter.
Back inside, leading from the kitchen is a formal dining area with a feature fireplace and log burner unit which is the source of the central heating for the house. From the dining room we then move into the lounge with the main front door, beamed ceilings and typical Andalucian shelving. The lounge flows into another room which can only be described as a ´chill out room´ as this includes a golf putting mat, football table and large wooden sauna, and at the end of this room is another open fireplace. Leading from this room is an ample double bedroom.
A set of stairs leads to the first floor with a large open landing area giving a great feeling of space. This area is like a room in itself with arm chairs and a window offering plenty of light. From here are two further double bedrooms. Moving along this hallway, you then find a door on the left out to an upstairs terrace overlooking the garden which is a good size with a table & chairs. Leading from this terrace is another set of steps up to a roof terrace with super panoramic views of the village and surrounding mountains. Back inside and further along the hallway the room opens up to make a large games room with a full-size pool table and TV area. Off this room is then a large family bathroom with full bath and the final huge double bedroom.
The home is very spacious and would make a great family home or holiday home, but could also be converted into a guest house, if required. Extras include the pool table, sauna, central heating and English & Spanish TV. Furniture can be included, subject to negotiation. Priced to sell, close offers will be considered.
