The location of this Villa in Santa Clara is also worthy of mention, with the hills above the town of Altea having one of the most prestigious postcodes in the south of Spain. This location is home to many of Europe's rich and famous and they love the area because it gives them the privacy and security of an exclusive resort, yet it is still close to local facilities and well-connected by a main arterial road network to the airports of Alicante and Valencia, both of which are under an hour away by car. There are several coastal towns within a 5-10 minute drive, all of which have their own marinas, weekly markets and fiestas, so you needn't do without a regular injection of the fantastic Spanish culture we all know and love. The area also offers a great choice of quality restaurants and bars and there are other facilities such as supermarkets and medical centres within easy reach, making it an ideal location for both extended holidays or permanent living, as you might expect from a property of this size and quality.
Approaching the property from the road, there are metal security gates which open via a car remote control, or from inside the property on request. this opens to a long drive way leading to the garage and hard standing in front of the house. The design's Moorish influences can be seen throughout the property, but is no more evident than at the main entrance, where arches protrude from above the doorway and coloured glass inserts catch the sun's rays. This is an impressive entrance and once inside, it is obvious that this is a substantial house. It should be noted that, although the structure is one, large villa, it is a property split into several different areas and there are 2 main living areas of the house. The ground floor and the basement level. There are 7 bedrooms in total, with 4 on this level of the house, complemented by 4 feature bathrooms, a beautiful, fully fitted oak kitchen and a very spacious living and dining area which opens to the gardens and poolside. There are also storage rooms, a laundry area and a large garage on this level.
Outside, the views are impressive, turning 360 degrees from the dramatic mountain range behind the property, over the forest at the base of the mountains and out over the resort and the coastal towns towards the sea. As we turn south, the distant skyscrapers of Benidorm city can be seen and finally the mountain range again comes into view. It is quite a scene and as you can see from the photographs of this property, it is a view which you could never tire of and which constantly gives new and changing interesting scenery as the days pass. The views over the swimming pool area are just as impressive, with a large infinity pool surrounded by a low maintenance deck and lush gardens. There is also a specialised self-cleaning system built into the pool, helping it maintain a clean and healthy environment for you and your family to enjoy the cooling waters on a hot day and when the temperatures drops during the winter months, there is a heating system to keep the water at a comfortable and usable level.
Under the swimming pool is the basement level and it is here that we find another part of the house, with its own entrance and which is currently being used as a guest apartment. This area has a further 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, another kitchen and a living area, as well as private gardens and access to the lower parking area, suitable for 3 more vehicles.
