5 bedroom villa
Beautiful and spacious villa in El Reloj urbanisation, Fortuna, Murcia, that is south facing with stunning views of surrounding citrus plantations and mountains. The villa seamlessly blends modern and traditional features and was built in 2007 on a generous plot of appr. 800 square metres, offering much privacy.
The villa has a build area of 246 square metres and a living space of 200 square metres, offering 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 kitchens, divided over two levels that may be used separately, e.g. by two families. Rooms are all well-sized, fitted with fans/airconditioning, and finished in neutral/ soft colours. The upper level offers a six metres high entrance hallway (8 m2) with vaulted ceiling, kitchen (8 m2), two bedrooms with built-in closets (13 and 14 m2), two bathrooms (5 and 8 m2) and a lounge/dining room (25 m2) that leads to a balcony (10 m2) that leads to a solarium (40 m2). The lower level offers a lounge/study that may double as bedroom (30 m2), kitchen (15 m2), hallway (8 m2), two more bedrooms (each 13 m2), a bathroom (4 m2) and an open dining/family area (20 m2). This is a very comfortable house with lots of space for up to ten people!
One of the villa's unique features is its beautiful and well-maintained garden with mature trees, plenty of flowers and shrubs, real natural grass (with automatic sprinklers), and an orchard as a bonus. The orchard offers various fruiting trees, including figs (you can eat fresh figs straight from the tree all summer long), pomegranates (providing plenty of antioxidants in autumn), lemons (great for marmelade or as a twist to your water in winter) and, of course, olives. Amidst this garden is a fantastic 10x5 metres pool with a 5 metre sitting area with jets to relax you completely. The pool and garden are currently maintained by a friendly neighbour who resides permanently.
The villa is located in a quiet, secure and well-kept urbanisation of 250 predominantly detached houses. The urbanisation has a mixed population with Spanish, British, Scandinavian and Dutch inhabitants that use their villa either permanently or as a holiday home. From its location it takes only a 10 minute drive to the town of Fortuna with thermal baths and 4 supermarkets to choose from, 20 minutes to the fantastic shopping malls and historical centre of Murcia city, 45 minutes to the bustling coast of Costa Calida and Alicante airport and city centre. Nature lovers and those looking for physical activity are in for a treat too, with several areas of outstanding natural beauty nearby, including Embalse de Santomera (within walking or biking distance), Sierra Espuña and Sierra de la Pila (both great for hiking and biking).
