This Mediterranean villa is located at the end of a cul de sac in a sought-after urbanization: La Galera de las Palmeras in Altea. The friendly facade with real Spanish character that greets you on the street side hides the true size of this property. The house is divided into two separate living areas located on top of each other.
The primary living area is on top. You can enter this via the main entrance that gives immediate access to the spacious covered terrace on the south side. In line with this terrace is also a piece of open terrace for the real sun lovers.
Since we mostly live outside in Spain 3/4th of the year, you will be able to enjoy many dinners on the covered terrace, as this immediately connects to the living room with open kitchen. The living room itself is spacious with a characterful real fireplace.
There are also 2 bedrooms and bathrooms in the upper living area, 1 of which can serve as a guest toilet. The master bedroom is of course on the north side, with an eye on the coolness. The bedrooms and bathrooms are accessible via a hallway to the right of the living room.
If you pass the main entrance of the house and walk past the house to the back, you can reach a large storage room via another large open terrace. There is also a wide staircase from this terrace down to the lower living area as well as the garden & swimming pool.
The lower living area has a separate entrance from the outside. This can function as a guest house or even for rental. It consists of a living room with a small kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and guest toilet.
The garden and large swimming pool (10m x 5m) are well landscaped and maintained. The very spacious terrace around the pool gives an open and free feeling. Next to the pool and under one of the terraces is a covered terrace at ground level. Ideal to enjoy a BBQ or Paella with a splash in the pool between dishes.
The practicalities have also been well thought out. A heated outdoor shower and a separate toilet separate from the house ensures that if the need arises, you do not have to enter the house with wet clothes.
You can easily park your car right at the main entrance. Here there is also garage at ground level. However, the lot also has a wide driveway further into the street. Several vehicles can easily be parked here for the times when you would receive several guests.
The large maintenance area of the swimming pool can be reached directly from the street via a closed door. This means that your pool man does not have to enter the house every time for maintenance. The space is so large that it can also be used as an extra storage room.
Furthermore, the house has all the necessary facilities in terms of comfort. In addition to the fireplace, there is also oil central heating in both parts of the house. For the hot summers, 3 air conditioning units have been installed in the living room and 2 master bedrooms.
What is characteristic of the Galera de Las Palmeras is that the autopista is audible. This house is therefore not an option for people who want 100% silence.
