A very desirable residence with 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large garage, private pool (10x5m) on an extremely large plot (1,454 m2) with spectacular, sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. Located in the exclusive Villasmaría urbanization just 2km south of the town of San Miguel de Salinas, and with the Sierra de Escalona pine forest as the backdrop, this is a truly magnificent home. Constructed in 2001 over two floors (with integral garage in large basement), the distribution of rooms is as follows.
The ground floor comprises a large lounge with dining area, with access via concertina patio doors to a very large covered terrace (verandah) with glass curtains and superb views of the gardens and beyond. This terrace in turn has access at each end to an open barbecue area on one side, and the swimming pool area at the other end. Also on the ground floor is a semi-independent kitchen with arched serving hatch which allows views to the lounge, verandah and gardens. 2 double bedrooms and a shared bathroom complete the ground floor.
Two internal staircases lead from the ground floor to the integral garage (with windows, power, water and room for 3-4 vehicles) on the floor below and to the upper floor respectively. There are an additional 4 bedrooms (2 of which are linked via an archway) and 2 bathrooms on the upper floor. The bedrooms allow access to a small and large sun terrace respectively. Both upper sun terraces are tiled, walled and with pergola beams, and of course breathtaking views, as you can see from the photographs! There is a brick-built storage shed to the rear of the property for storage of garden items.
The garage is connected via a driveway to a secure gated entrance on a different street (cul-de-sac) to the main property entrance. Although the area of Villasmaría (and also neighbouring Torrestrella and Las Comunicaciones) is renowned for offering a very high standard of villas with generally large-sized plots, this property is truly exceptional in terms of build size, plot size, quality of finish and views. The town centre of San Miguel de Salinas is only 2km away (approx 30 minutes walk through the countryside), where you will find a great selection of restaurants, bars and all other facilities. Closer to the property, there are 2 excellent bar/restaurants within walking distance.
For golf and beach lovers, there is a wide selection of both golf courses and fantastic beaches, all within short driving distance, eg Mil Palmeras beach is 15 minutes (11 km) away, and Las Colinas golf course is a mere 7 mins (5 km) drive away.
This fantastic home is offered for sale by Villas Fox, having been appointed directly by the owners. We have by far the best selection of properties in the San Miguel de Salinas area.

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. The local internet company provides reliable, high-speed (fibre-optic) internet connections. 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!
