Located on a large elevated plot of some 39,233m² this villa benefits from its majestic position with 360° views overlooking the olive & almond groves of the surrounding valley with a stunning mountain backdrop. The local village of Albanchez is less than 3 kilometres away and has long since been associated with the beautiful Roman aquaduct which is steeped in history and which is located just across the valley from this magnificent family home.
The village of Albanchez, is a very pretty & typically Spanish village with a lovely atmosphere and the architectural wealth of the town is clearly visible, with monuments such as the parish church of Nuestra Señora de la Anunciación, built in the 17th century, the church of Encarnación, the San Roque chapel from the 15th Century and the chapel of San Mateo, from the 14th Century.. The village has numerous restaurants bars and shops along with, a school, a 24 hour medical centre and petrol station.
The villa is distributed over two levels and is made up of 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and it is instantly clear that the house has been constructed to a high quality level using only the best materials throughout especially in the bathrooms where many of the tiles are hand crafted specifically for this property by local craftsmen. The current owners have continued to make further improvements to the this large home by adding a state of the art designer log burning fireplace which you will find in the spacious lounge room which also benefits from doors that lead out to the rear terraces and gardens.
There are two dining areas the first of which is the breakfast room which has the open plan style kitchen adjacent with quality granite worktops, high grade built in appliances, ample wall and floor storage cupboards and there is a separate walk in larder room. From this area there is an archway leading through into the “formal” dining room which has to the one side a huge hand built marble staircase leading to the upper level of the villa and to the other side there are large patio doors which take you out to the covered terrace which has three large arches that look out over the courtyard gardens which are filled with pretty plants, shrubs and trees.
Again on the ground floor there are three large guest bedrooms the one having its own en suite with a spa bath tub, the next again being of an excellent size and having a lovely spacious en suite and finally on this level the third bedroom, which is set up as a twin to help you cope with all of the visiting family and friends so along with the further two independent stunning bathrooms and the study area just on this ground floor alone you get that lovely feeling of space and opulence that continues on through the upstairs of the villa.
The upper level of the house is made up of a further guest room which has a private en suite with a corner bath and patio doors which lead out to an elevated terrace which gives spectacular views over the surrounding countryside, plus we then come to the master bedroom which can only be described as huge. The en suite bathroom that is just off the main master bedroom is lovely and bright and features a large corner bath and once again the design and tiling to this room is stunning from the gold leaf inlays right through to the attention to detail in the craftsmanship it is really something to see.
The main entrance drive is accessed by a private driveway that sweeps down to the a double set of electrically operated ornate gates that have a built in intercom system leading up towards the property with the frontage of the house being mostly paved plus alongside this space there is a large barbecue area with seating and there is even your very own personal helicopter pad to the right of the property there is an additional driveway that leads down to a huge double garage and below this are two storeroom one which houses the oil fired central heating system for the house and the second that has all of the garden irrigation equipment .
To the rear of the property is a set of wide wooden steps from the rear courtyard leading down to the pool and terrace area where you will find a large bespoke metal gazebo with ample seating and there is also a built in bar. The kidney shaped pool is solar heated so as to extend the swimming season and both the pool and the bar areas boast stunning scenic views of the landscape and for anyone who is less mobile the pool area can also be accessed via two separate ramps giving no problems in that respect.
This is a truly stunning executive villa, which really does need to be seen to be believed and which has been constructed and maintained to the highest level by both the original and current owners using only the highest quality materials throughout.
