Located in a unique location this property will revive new owners inviting you to stop take a deep breath and listen to the sounds of the Mediterranean, to enjoy views where the sea touches the sky and the eyes meet the infinity, where the Mediterranean scent radiates notes of local herbs, cool breezes, hot sun and starry nights in a somewhat unspoilt area where you can live and enjoy the charm, history, local fiestas and traditions yet have all the required amenities and facilities nearby to provide you with a luxurious lifestyle if desired thereby giving you the best of both worlds.
For golf lovers there is the Ifach golf course situated nearby on a country estate, a challenging nine-hole course with magnificent views of the sea and mountains.
PROPERTY DETAILS With a generous accommodation that includes 5 bedroom and 4 bathrooms the property has been sympathetically renovated. The exterior areas alone, arranged as nature intended with glorious, ancient tree stock and rustic terraces are a Garden of Eden with dreamlike sea view. An experience in itself are the covered terraces, which count among the most important living spaces in Spain, and here reveal their full diversity and Mediterranean zest for life.
Built in 1918, the imposing walls, hand cut floor coverings, open fireplaces and striking woodwork, this Spanish country house gem is presented with picture book flair.
An almost historical opulence in the fittings and furnishings lend the idyllically extravagant rooms an additional aura and ambience, while open-plan, split-level living areas convey spaciousness and timeless class. Contemporary comfort, such as central heating, spotlights and an American barbecue successfully complement the magical idyll, of which a mystical grotto, a charming guest house and a putting range for golf enthusiasts also form a part.
This property unites everything; glorious nature, fascinating culture, original architecture, lasting values and the dream of a lifetime.
