Finca Badowa - is a stunning property that mixes Spanish charm with contemporary living and design, situated within the national park of Montgo.|
A large and spacious villa of some 400m2, set in a good sized plot of around 2000m2, the property has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and includes new bathrooms, kitchens, swimming pool and sun terrace.
Situated inland, near the charming small town of ‘Jesus Pobre', the area is a walkers’, and nature lovers’, paradise and has the added benefit of only being a short drive to the sandy beaches of the nearby resorts Javea & Denia.
For the active individual, as well as the walking and swimming, there is also an 18 hole golf course 5 minutes’ drive from the property, as well as horse riding and tennis in the locality.
The villa is accessed via an impressive set of old wooden studded gates, leading to a drive, which can accommodate one car, although there is plenty of parking outside the property. The property is on three levels, with internal stairs between the floors.
NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THERE ARE FIVE BEDROOMS THIS VILLA IS ONLY EQUIPPED FOR 8 PERSONS TO COMFORTABLY ENJOY THEIR HOLIDAY - SO NO EXTRA PERSONS PLEASE - AND DO ADVISE US WHICH BEDS TO BE MADE UP FOR YOUR PARTY.
Accommodation - A gate from the parking area leads straight onto the pool terrace, where you enter the villa from under the naya (covered terrace) into a very large living room, with a feature stone fireplace, double height ceilings, large beams and a stone staircase leading to upstairs. This room has a baby grand piano (very out of tune at the moment but looks amazing!), large wall-mounted satellite television* and a leather sofa suite. From this room you can access the kitchen, main master bedroom suite, dressing room and games room.
The kitchen is a high-tech quality German manufacture, with all the appliances you would expect including a steam oven, convection hob, dishwasher etc. There is a large table which seats 8 people. There are large wooden sliding doors that lead out onto a delightful outside terrace, furnished with a wooden dining suite, which is shaded by an ancient wisteria – much needed during the height of summer.
The dressing room and office area, with a large fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers, is accessed directly from the living room, via two sets of old wooden double doors, and a small set of stone steps lead to the large master bedroom, which has its own en-suite bathroom, with walk-in shower, a wall-mounted television and a DVD player. A feature of this room is a pair of French windows that leads to its own private terrace, and then a set of steps directly into the garden.
The games room is also accessed via the living room, through wooden sliding doors and a glass walkway. There is a second kitchen in this room, fitted with a large American fridge and dishwasher, as well as a table tennis table. There is access to the pool area from this room, via large sliding wooden doors.
First floor - is accessed via the internal stone staircase. There is a second master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom with a huge walk-in stone shower (2m long), and access to its own private terrace via French doors. There are two further twin bedrooms, and a family bathroom with a bath and shower above. All bedrooms are fitted with good sized wardrobes.
Second floor - accessed via a staircase by the family bathroom, there is another double bedroom with en-suite shower room (toilet, glass wash hand basin, walk in shower with glass doors, and heated towel rail) and French doors from the bathroom leading to a small Juliet balcony and a window, and a small door leading out onto two balconies with spectacular views of the Montgo mountain, and seating outside on the terraces - all of which can be opened for a through breeze.
The two twin bedrooms and double bedroom on the first floor have ceiling fans, whilst the master bedroom has a floor standing fan: all rooms are light and airy, with plenty of windows to enable air through. It should be noted that the majority of the house was built in the old style, with thick walls, which keep the villa cool in the summer, so air-conditioning is not required.
Outside - The pool and sun terrace have been totally renovated: the area is very private and a real sun trap, although there is plenty of shade under the covered terrace, where there is a sofa with two armchairs and table and 6 chairs. The larger than average 10x5m rectangular swimming pool, with Roman steps, has a surrounding sun terrace with 8 teak sun loungers.
There are steps from the pool terrace to a dining area with a built in barbecue and outside shower. A pathway leads to the master bedroom suite’s private terrace and then into the garden with its own old stone cassita (open garden house), shrubs and fruit trees.
The upper terraces at the rear of the property give spectacular views to the Montgo mountain, and a gate at the rear of the villa leads onto a path that takes you upto the top.
Within 1.5km is the pretty small town of 'Jesus Pobre' which has a traditional baker, chemist, bank, a few bars & restaurants, and a small supermarket. The nearest large supermarket is a 5 minute drive away, and there is a selection of good restaurants within a very short drive, on the main road towards Javea.
