We are offering for sale a three-storey country house with views of the mountains, valleys and the town. The house has an elevated position looking over Cocentaina, in the middle of an ancient pine grove and with an easy access from the tarmac road. It is walking distance to els Algars, the district of Cocentaina, only minutes- drive from Alcoy and about 40 minutes from Alicante and the Costa. The plot is 8000ms with mature pines, olives, almonds and fruit trees. The immediate area of the house would look beautiful if landscaped – it is a private, tranquil space with far reaching views and grand ancient pines as centerpieces. The house has 350 m2 over three floors. The construction is solid with thick stone antique walls in perfect condition. There are well preserved traditional wooden beams as well as newer concrete girders which are one of the tokens of continuous maintenance work done by the family. The main living space has a tall beamed ceiling , a large open fire, an antique bread oven and exposed stonework on some of the walls. There are some excellent examples of original carpentry throughout the house, definitely worth restoring. The house has currently eight bedrooms – of course the internal layout can be easily adapted to the needs of the new owner. The plumbing is in place for the new bathroom downstairs and upstairs. The staircase has a fabulous design and all the antique flooring is intact. The current owners have done well to preserve this atmospheric house which means that the new owners’ job of restoration will be much easier. The property would make a grand family home, but for those looking to make their home a place of business as well, this would be a great choice. The proximity to town, the views, the privacy and the quick access to natural parks (the property sits at the foot of Sierra de la Mariola) highly valued by hikers and cyclist make the house an ideal place for rural tourism. The house is connected to the electric grid and the running water.
