Salinas is just eight minutes away from the town of Sax which has become incredibly popular and, in turn, has sent prices in the town to rise extraordinarily. Salinas is basically the next postcode and the nearest town and prices are already beginning to rise so this is the perfect time to look seriously at Salinas.
We are proud to present a lovely traditional 3 Bed townhouse all on one level that also has the highly sought after exterior space.
Structurally the property is superb and a new roof was put in less than five years ago meaning that the property is completely dry even after the almost biblical rain we have recently experienced.
The property is being offered with a new electrical and water connection as no one has lived in it for many years and it is in need of modernisation and a lick of paint.
The hallway has three decent sized double bedrooms to the left and right and leads to the lounge/diner where a door leads to the kitchen and then out to the bathroom which is on the patio.
On the other side of the patio, there is a large storage area. There is an option to resite the bathroom with a dressing room instead of one of the three bedrooms. The patio is a good sized exterior space and exterior space is always difficult to find in traditional Spanish townhouses as the Spanish tend to use public spaces and Salinas has three parks along with a host of bars and restaurants.
There is a very small number of properties available in the town that have not already seen price increases so this adds to the value here.
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 life is tranquil and very safe, neighbours are like family members in these towns and they are always on hand to help newcomers.
There are two banks, Sabadell and La Caixa which are two of the biggest banks in Spain. A Doctor´s surgery, a Butcher, and 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.
My son has recently taken advantage of the lower prices to make his first investment in Salinas and we are excited to see what he makes of it.
