New to the market, this detached villa in Villaricos maximises its frontage to the front and sides but keeps the charm and security with wrought iron wreckers. A perimeter wall adds privacy and encloses a courtyard, that invites alfresco dining and entertaining.
Villaricos is a charming water-side village, with 2 Kilometres of sandy coves and beaches and a thriving fishing community. With a supermarket, shops and plenty of local bars, you will have variety and convenience on your doorstep. Other attractions include a bustling farmer’s market on a Sunday and waterside restaurants specialising in ‘catch of the day’
Whether you come to Villaricos for its diving spots, kayaking, sailing or beach-walks – this villa would be perfect for a growing family.
Villaricos is getting more and more popular with people that want to live near the beach but away from crowded coastal towns.
It is situated within easy reach of Mojacar, Vera, Valle Del Este Golf Resort and San Juan De Los Torreros. Spain’s Motorway network is just a ten-minute drive away.
On approaching the villa from the main square of Villaricos, you will immediately be impressed by the natural stone façade. Sourced from local quarries, the golden stone retains its natural texture so that it will continue to mellow over the course of time. This quality also means the stone walls are maintenance-free; which is a major factor to consider with a second home.
Three dramatic balconies and a ground-floor terrace are sympathetically enclosed with unfinished marble balustrades; again, sourced from the region, and these blend into the exterior perfectly.
The left-hand façade borders a small access road, which serves only two houses and provides ample parking for a family and visitors. To the right, the enclosed courtyard has an additional, separate access to the side street.
On entering the entrance hall, you will notice the quality of natural, maintenance free materials. These have been selected to eliminate maintenance but keep the Andalucian feel.
This is echoed by the tiling to both floor and stairs. All doors and architraving are high density MDF, which will resist warping in the heat and, again, require no maintenance. The property benefits from Air Conditioning, and a separate central heating system to radiators.
To the left, double doors open onto a large, typically Spanish-styled living room which extends the length of the property and is bathed in natural light from both the Southern and Western aspects.
The living room opens on to a good-sized terrace to the South, providing an additional seating and dining area. This terrace benefits from the shade of the balcony above during the harshest mid-day sun, promoting a cooler atmosphere inside the house without compromising on light.
In one corner is a wood burner for those rare days when you need to take the chill off. The décor is neutral and tasteful, incorporating plaster coving and recessed lighting.
On the left of the hall is the kitchen-diner. The fully fitted kitchen is furnished in solid wood and incorporates every convenience you would expect in a family home, including a built-in dishwasher, microwave, mid-height oven, and five-burner hob with extractor fan. There is room for a very large dining table which could seat up to 12 people comfortably. The décor is Spanish-style with an exposed brick feature wall. There is a walk-in pantry which provides ample storage and has natural light.
Beyond the dining area, double doors open onto a snug courtyard and utility area which has a power supply and plumbing, and an element of shade from the mid-day sun. This area is secure and extends the living space to provide private, alfresco dining. The Andalucían feel continues with half-height tiling and feature stone furniture.
Taking the stairs to the first floor, you will notice the textured finish to the walls – using local sand within the render. The interior balustrades are of polished marble.
Bedroom one has a window to the right and French Doors to the first balcony. There is space for a bistro-style table and chairs to enjoy the morning sun. Fitted wardrobes line one wall.
There are two bathrooms for convenience, both finished to a very high standard, with half-height tiling and feature dado tiling with raised detail. Both contain white suites and neutral decor.
The family bathroom has the luxury of a whirlpool bath, overhead shower and fitted vanity unit with storage. The lighting is recessed into a ceiling that is edged with plaster coving.
Bedroom two is decorated in cool colours and has a window t the side aspect, overlooking the mountains. There are wardrobes to one wall, and recessed lights.
From the landing, a walk-in closet provides even more storage, and keeps everyday items out of view.
Bedroom three also has French doors to a large terrace, and a casement door to a further balcony. From here, you have a view across rooftops to the sea beyond.
This is a fantastic opportunity to own a luxury, maintenance-free, detached property 40 metres from the sea, set in the heart of Villaricos.
