In a superb location with just one neighbour and outstanding views this is a fabulous house at an equally fabulous price of under 200,000€ and it is loaded with features. 

To begin, this is a very spacious property with perfect distribution, the sleeping areas and the living areas are separated by a long hallway. 

The terrace at the entrance to the house is lovely with great views and plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and there are a number of other areas around the property to do exactly the same thing. 

On entering the front door, you are immediately struck by the sheer size of the pellet fire that throws out an absolutely ridiculous amount of heat. The Pellet fire is state of the art and was installed recently at a cost of 3,000€ and can be used as a central heating system if you want to install radiators. 

To the right is a kitchen/diner, a quite rare thing in Spain as this really is a kitchen/diner not just a kitchen with space for a small table and maybe two chairs. The dining area is more or less a dining room. 

A long hallway off the lounge takes you to the three double bedrooms, the master has its own en-suite with a corner bath and each room is full of natural light. The family bathroom has a power shower and is just lovely. 

Now the surprise part. As you exit the property at the rear you enter a covered patio area which is large and is being used as a utility room but there is a passageway to the right that leads to a massive BBQ. The whole space has bags of potential but I love it as it is. 

From the covered patio, there is a rear door out into the gardens which is where, on the right-hand side is a Guest House. The Guest house wants a bit of love, the doors need replacing, a splash of paint, etc but it has plenty of space for guests with its own kitchen/lounge/diner with a log burner for heating. 

The grounds are special, there are plenty of naturally shaded areas, some stone furniture, a child´s play area and, of course, the 10 x 5 Swimming Pool with a terrace from where the views are spectacular. 

At the front of the property is a good-sized garage which has been used as a workshop and there are kennels and plenty of parking spaces. 

I doubt there is anything quite like this property at the price. 

Why Sax?

There are no traffic lights, it has a 13th-century castle and there are no traffic wardens but there are streets full of restaurants, bars and cafes. What? That isn´t enough?

Sax is so popular because it is far enough inland to be “inland” yet it is only 30 minutes to Alicante Airport and 35 minutes to the beach.  Access is by the A31 Dual Carriageway Alicante to Madrid road which runs just outside of the town, by rail and coach from Alicante so you can go to the beach and not have to take your car, and now we are only five minutes away from the AVE station at Villena. The AVE is the high-speed train from Alicante to Madrid which has only four stops and we are five minutes away from a station that onboarding will you have you in Madrid in 2hrs 9mins for as little as 25€.

Let us stick with the town of Sax for now rather than escaping to the beach or the capital city of Spain. Sax is dominated by its 13th-century castle known as the Headlight and Guardian of The Border a landscape of history and rock. When driving back home to Sax after daylight the sight of the castle, fully lit, and seemingly floating in the air is one of the most welcoming sights I have ever experienced.

Commercially, Sax was only affected in a minor way by the economic crash as it is the home of three major international businesses selling “persianas y toldos”, window blinds and sun canopies and a shoe industry that means if you recently bought a pair of shoes in Debenhams, for example, the chances are they could have been made in Sax or nearby Elda.  Recently we have seen the opening of a Consum supermarket, the equivalent of a Waitrose or Marks & Spencer Food Hall whilst there has been a Hiperber and Mas y Mas, both excellent supermarkets for as long as I can remember, and if that isn´t enough there is a Carrefour (Think Tesco) eight minutes’ drive away within a shopping mall complex that has two cinemas one of which is showing films in English with Spanish subtitles.

Sax is served wonderfully well with schools, our son was eight when we moved here and reluctantly, we put him into a state school, he always went to a private school in Manchester, and within six months he was fluent in two languages and following five years in a secondary school went on to study Pharmacy at Complutense in Madrid one of Spain´s most famous and prestigious universities.

Crime rate; Sax has full employment and subsequently a very low crime rate. It is a small town where everyone knows each other and a Spanish family would normally feel shamed if a member was in trouble with the police. Their modern values are the ones we experienced growing up in the UK 50-60 years ago. I parked rather stupidly recently on the Hight Street (Gran Via) even by Spanish standards I was naughty as I popped into the bank. I received a phone call within 90 seconds from the Local Police who called me a “dickhead”, well the Spanish equivalent, no ticket no fine just a little humiliation.

For health, Sax and Spain, in general, is far superior to the UK. In the town, we have a brand-new Health Centre with eight doctors, two nurses, diabetes clinics and a 24/7 Emergency Walk/In Centre. Ten minutes away in Elda is the remarkable award-winning University Hospital El Virgen De Salud where the surgeons are second to none and the food is atrocious, well it can’t all be good!! Newly opened is the Fibromyalgia centre offering support and therapies for those suffering from acute pain.

There are now four Language Schools in the town and the town hall ran a scheme for language swapping that well may be run again. Learning Spanish is a lot less difficult than it may seem and there are new ways of learning that concentrate on Spanish.

There are restaurants and bars aplenty with prices that are at first beyond belief and a three or four-course lunch of good quality can easily be found for 10€ or less. For a special occasion, there is Casa Mami and La Torreta which are a little more expensive but great food experiences can be had. Coffee and toast for breakfast will cost no more than 2€ and the coffee is possibly the best in Europe. We have a Walking Group, two Golfing Societies, Ladies Who Lunch and probably lots more Social Activities to enjoy. Sax, it´s a great place to live.
