For sale direct from the owners! This superb 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached villa is located in one of the best possible locations within this popular urbanization – a larger than average corner plot of 680M2 gives plenty of room to enjoy the climate, protected pine forest to the rear ensures complete privacy and a slightly elevated position provides great views. The property would make the ideal permanent home to enjoy life in the heart of beautiful Murcia but it would also be perfect for those wanting to enjoy a holiday home which is easy to “lock and leave”. The property itself is beautifully presented and has been updated and modernised by the current owners – many improvements set this villa apart from many others available for sale in the area. An enclosed veranda works perfectly as a formal dining room and with two sides of glazing, the views from this room are glorious. The living room is a good size with two sets of double doors connecting to the dining room. This ensures the living room is light and bright and for those cooler months, a very effective pellet burner has been installed. The kitchen is accessed from the living room (separated by a proper door) and is well fitted with plenty of wall and base units, topped off by granite work surfaces. There are the usual inbuilt appliances including an oven, hob, extractor, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. There is also a door to a covered outdoor terrace, which was added by the present owners, as more outdoor living space. From the living room you have access to two ground floor bedrooms, both of which come with built in storage and serving both these bedrooms is a large bathroom and a large storage cupboard. Stairs rise up to the first floor which is where we find the master bedroom suite – a good sized double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a patio window with Juliet balcony and terrific views. The first floor landing also provides access to an amazing 44M2 roof terrace giving you panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and complete privacy for sunbathing.

The gardens have been cleverly landscaped to create a lovely environment without creating too much work. The Property backs onto a protected pine forest with great walking routes available – it has the effect of extending the gardens without the work! The pool area is not overlooked by neighbours and with a great poolside BBQ/bar area, which catches all of the afternoon sun, it is the perfect space to make the most of the weather – cloudless, blue skies, more than 300 days of sun a year and a yearly rainfall of less than 12 inches. La Canada and Calasparra… The property is located just a 5min drive to Calasparra which offers a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants and a wealth of history. The location and history of this area make it especially appealing. The variety of activities are numerous here (canyoning, rafting, kayaking etc.) The amazing natural landscape is stunning for exploring, walking and cycling. Calasparra has more than six hundred years of existence and the history is absolutely amazing. There are caves with rupestrian paintings, declared World Heritage by the unesco, and archaeological sites ranging from Palaeolithic to Hispano-Muslim, with artefacts housed in the Archaeological Museum (former Encomienda building). The Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, or Our Lady of Hope, the patron saint of Calasparra, who’s Shrine excavated in the rock face forms part of a beautiful spot on the banks of the River Segura. All this is a 30 min walk or a 5 min drive. However, you don’t even need to reach town to benefit from local amenities as the development includes two bars with the restaurant, Titanium, specialising in delicious Murcian food. Just a 5-10min walk means you don’t even have to get in the car. On the social front, you have a huge amount to choose from – Zumba classes, Line dancing, MABS and mara charity events, a quiz once a month, Bingo every Thursday evening, card making classes, two gyms in town, road and mountain bike paradise, a canoe club on River Segura (10 min drive), a walking club and the area is a beautiful place for hiking and walking. Literally, what more could you ask for? Airports – the new Corvera airport is less than an hour’s drive and Alicante airport is 1 hour 20m. Friday is market day and the streets are filled with the aroma of sun-ripened fresh fruit and vegetables, and traditional Spanish fayre such as variety of typical chorizo sausage and other Spanish delicacies. There are clothes, linen and many other stalls including leather goods. The nearest golf course, Altorreal, is an 18-hole, par 72 championship course which was designed by Dave Thomas. The course has a combination of hilly and flat holes surrounded by more than 20,000 olive, carob and pine trees with spectacular mountain views.
