A great example of a Lakeview Mansions (Lo Rufete, San Miguel de Salinas) villa with private pool, solarium, garage and large underbuild with bar and full-size competition snooker table. The bedrooms and kitchen have been recently refurbished. Located in a quiet residential area which comprises approximately 80 villas and one bar-restaurant (the Black Bull), surrounded by beautiful countryside on the edge of the La Pedrera reservoir. Between Torremendo and San Miguel de Salinas, but within the municipality of San Miguel de Salinas, and with distant but clear views of the salt lake and Mediterranean from the kitchen, lounge and solarium!
This delightful villa is set on a good-sized plot measuring approximately 340 square metres, has a total build size of 168 m2 and was constructed in 2003. Comprising an upper floor (reached by a short flight of 3 steps from the pool and garden area) with porch, lounge-dining area with fireplace, 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one of which is en-suite) and separate, fully-fitted kitchen with rear door. A driveway to the side of the house leads to the garage which has access to the bar and snooker room. This room can also be accessed via an external door to the other side of the house. As you can see from the photos, it is like having your very own pub downstairs!
The tiles around the pool are modern and offer a large, low-maintenance area to lounge around, and there are no coping stones around the pool, in the modern style. The swimming pool has been recently re-grouted (August 2020) and therefore won´t need to be done again for several years. There is an external staircase which leads down to the snooker and bar room (great for when you´re thirsty round the pool!) and up to the solarium which offers fantastic views. The pool is west-facing and not shaded by any surrounding buildings, therefore receives plenty of sun throughout the day. The barbecue area is in a more shaded part of the garden, which is ideal so that the chef doesn´t overheat, and you can enjoy your hot steak in the cool.
There is open countryside to the side of the property, since the plot is located at the end of a short cul-de-sac.
To be sold fully-furnished, and ready to move into, with ceiling fans and air-conditioned for your comfort! This property is a great option if you´re looking for a touch of luxury in a quiet and peaceful environment, without being too far from the coast, and at a very affordable price. Because of the large area around the pool, the barbecue area and the snooker room with bar, this is also an ideal villa if you enjoy entertaining and having company around to enjoy your place in the sun with your friends.
On a technical note, both the garage and the snooker room are included in the description in the title deeds (escritura).

San Miguel de Salinas
San Miguel de Salinas is a very popular Spanish town just 15 minutes drive from the beaches of Mil Palmeras, Campoamor, Cabo Roig, La Zenia, Torrevieja, La Mata, Guardamar etc and surrounded by beautiful countryside which includes citrus and almond groves and the national park of Sierra Escalona right on our doorstep. You can walk and cycle for miles along the canal which runs right next to the town.
There are a great variety of bars and restaurants, both Spanish and international (almost 30 in the town centre alone, which means the annual tapas run event is very popular!!). If you are looking for a holiday destination or a place to live all year round, San Miguel is a great choice as it has all amenities (primary and secondary schools with excellent reputations, banks, health centre which never closes, 3 pharmacies, large outdoor swimming pool, football and athletics stadium, 5-a-side football pitch, tennis courts, padel courts, basketball courts, petanca, crown green bowls etc) and a healthy mix of Spanish and foreign neighbours.
The pace of life is gentle and relaxing, and prices in the bars tend to be more reasonable than the coast (a glass of good red wine from the barrel will set you back just 50 centimos in some of the bars). The weekly Wednesday street market is a great opportunity to stock up on locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, hams, cheeses, olives, clothes and shoes etc, before having a drink and tapas in one of our friendly tavernas!
There is a good local taxi service and buses run several times daily to Torrevieja, Orihuela and Murcia. Alicante and Murcia airport are both approx 40 mins drive away. San Miguel is a place where you can enjoy a taste of traditional Spanish life and culture, without foregoing the benefits of top-class facilities and amenities. It is a very friendly place too, which we think you will love!
