A unique property that is celebrating its first birthday, practically a new build, and of the highest quality imaginable. There are a few finishing touches to be made such as the exterior needing to be painted, which means you can choose the colour, the BBQ area has the foundations and utilities connected ready for the one of your choice and it is plumbed for a water fountain. Finally, the landscaping of the land and the planting of an orchard if required and/or vegetable gardens, whatever you choose. Following advice from local tradesmen, we estimate that less than 20,000€ would be sufficient for everything to be done to match the quality of the property.
To give you an idea of the size of the Villa, the original plans were for a 4 Bed 4 Bath and now it is a 2 Bed 2 Bath a quite massive 2 Bed 2 Bath. The distribution can easily be changed to create one or two more bedrooms, it would be a shame but it can be done. It would be a shame because when you open the front door and enter this Villa you immediately know it is something incredibly special, something that you would normally see in the centre pages of a property magazine or featured as a design award winner.
Everything is exciting to discover from the massive island in the kitchen to the stunning Master Suite, everything looks worthy of a design award.
Check out the video which probably explains the villa far better than I can other than to say I absolutely love it, the stuff of dreams.
Salinas is a lovely small town near Sax in inland Alicante and just 35 minutes’ drive to Alicante Airport and five minutes more to the beaches. Like Sax, Salinas has almost no unemployment and this means that both towns have very low crime rates, a far cry from when I lived in the UK and we had to lock everything a million times, here the life is tranquil and very safe, neighbours are like family members in these towns and they are always on hand to
There are two banks, Sabadell and La Caixa which are two of the biggest banks in Spain. A Doctor´s surgery, a Butcher, a Baker but, sadly, no candlestick maker, however there is a minimarket, a Public Swimming and Sports Arena and a Pharmacy along with a host of bars, cafes and restaurants and a lovely Public Park and magnificent views of the four mountain ranges in which the town settles.
Consum supermarket in Sax, an equivalent to Waitrose in the UK, will deliver to Salinas along with Mercadona Supermarket in Elda as will one of the Kebab shops and also a Pizza delivery service is available. The superb Hospital in Elda is 15 minutes away.
Parque La Rana (Park La Rana) is a small but very beautiful park where a Medieval Market is held once a year and also it is the home of the restaurant La Rana Salinas which currently has a massive 4.7 rating and where people come from miles around for their rice dishes and superb quality meats.
My favourite Café is Trivial and there is now a lovely Conservatory built next to the small park where you can sit in the warmth of the winter sunshine or, in summer, all the glass is drawn back to allow the mountain breeze to flow through.
My second favourite has to be the Petrol Station that has a tiny café in the rear, it used to be famous as the “unofficial smoking” bar but those days have gone and it is now a place where many of the factory workers go for a coffee and a tot of brandy or rum. There is something about it that tells you this couldn´t happen in the UK.
Whilst Sax has seen massive increases on property values due to the number of itinerant workers looking to rent Monday to Friday – the Spanish don´t do commuting, even 20 minutes in the car is seen as commuting – Salinas I snow catching up and is proving a great town for investment as there are still affordable townhouses and apartments.
My son has recently taken advantage of the lower prices to make his first investment in Salinas and we are excited to see a the makes of it. Meanwhile we have some excellent options starting at 25,000€ needing reform and some around the 35-40k needing less work and all are capable of long term rentals bringing in around 350€ per month, a great ROI.
