Reduced from €185,000 to €180,000 - This modern 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom minimalist villa can be found in the heart of the Sierra Calderona National Park, just 5 minutes (3km) from Gilet village centre. Gilet is a popular amongst foreigners looking to purchase property in Spain, due to its proximity to acres of national park and being just 15 minutes from some of the region´s most unspoilt beaches. Gilet itself is home to a whole host of shops, schools and restaurants yet Valencia city centre, with its abundant attractions, can be found some 35 minutes (30km) drive away.
As we enter this unique property through the front door, we are immediately greeted with the open plan living come dining space with fitted kitchen to our right. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all necessary electrical appliances. In the corner of this living space, we have a log burner and chimney, which given the lofty nature of this property, manages to heat the whole house during the cooler winter months. Sliding patio doors from here open onto the L shaped outdoor terrace, which provides a great place to enjoy the wonderful views of the national park that surrounds this property. Leading off from the living space is the main bathroom, complete with a shower cubicle, toilet and sink. Just next to here, we have the smallest of the two bedrooms, which has stairs up to a separate mezzanine level, which could be used as another bedroom or living space, if required. A trap door from the main living room takes us down to the property´s basement, which is currently being used by the vendor as a wine cellar.
An impressive wrought iron staircase from the living room takes us up to the first floor, where we have the master bedroom, complete with build in wardrobes and a guest toilet. Stairs from the master bedroom, take us onto another mezzanine level, which is currently being used as a second living room. There are also stairs from the master bedroom, which lead up to a third mezzanine level, currently being used for storage.
Outside and we have a good-sized plot which has a long, gated driveway to the front, providing the property with off road and secured parking for several cars. There are two lawned areas with plants and trees and a separate outbuilding which is currently used as a workshop but as it has access to running water and electricity, could be converted into further accommodation, should the new owner wish to do so. To the rear of the property, we have the 7.5 x 3.5 m swimming pool with a cleaning and filtration kit stored in a pump house just next to the pool.
The owner loves – “As I constructed this property myself in 2008, I was sure to build a space that flowed and was in keeping with my minimalist taste. I wanted to create a space that flowed from room to room and that wasn´t bound by harsh walls, as property´s so often are constructed nowadays.”
We think – “This property is a great option for those looking for a modern house in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are several flights of stairs to contend with, which is something that one would have to bare in mind when considering this property. The plot is fully urban, meaning it has access to all services and that there would be no problem in the new owner converting the outbuilding currently used as a workshop into a separate guest house, if they so wished.”
