Remarkable 5 Bed 2 Bath Townhouse with Patio and Terrace in Sax 

This is one of those properties that, from the exterior, does not suggest how stunning the interior is going to be. 

Located in a much sought-after zone in the town, two minutes walk to Consum supermarket and a pharmacy and two minutes in another direction to the old church plaza and the shops on the High Street. It´s an area I know well as we have an apartment just 200 meters away and we love it. 

So, first the negatives:-

1. The exterior wants painting. 

Ok that´s it and we can move on to all the features:- 

1.       Superbly constructed with thick walls, you are never going to hear your neighbours.

2.       Loads of free on-street parking in a very safe are

3.       The property has been built using the highest quality materials

4.       This is a house for life, outgrowing it would be very difficult.

5.       The balance of interior and exterior space is exceptional. It is rare to find townhouses that have exterior space and this has a patio on the ground floor and a balcony terrace upstairs. If you have pets, you have no worries and loads of outside space for children to play and there is a children´s park just one minute away.

6.       It is in walk-in condition and modernising can take place whilst you are comfortably living there.

7.       A bathroom on each floor, both are newly installed and modern

8.       Two Bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs but the house can also be divided into two separate living areas rather easily.

9.       If you prefer to have only bedrooms upstairs then a completely separate dining room can be made, although the current lounge/diner is a big space, and the other bedroom downstairs could be an office or a den.

10.   The kitchen has modern units and is traditional Spanish style as in it is compact and the family used to cook the majority of their food outside on the patio as is the way things are done here.

11.   There is a stunning large lounge/diner area upstairs as well as downstairs. If you have children there are so many options available.

12.   Air conditioning in the two lounge/diners, however, due to the construction the house remains relatively cool even in the summer.

13.   The price of 145,000€ is 30,000€ less than our valuation and obtaining a mortgage would be a formality.

14.   Nearly all the windows have been replaced and there are some tilt and swivel but all are high-quality double-glazed to keep out the cold in winter and the heat in summer and all have blinds fitted.

15.   The price is amazing, I know I have already said that but it´s worth two mentions. 

16. Beautiful feature Log-Burning Fireplace and electric heaters.

17. 600MB Fibre Internet about to be upgraded to 1MB.

18. Two minutes walk to the market on a Monday for all your fresh fruit and vegetables locally grown.

Honestly, yes an honest Estate Agent, a rare thing indeed but remember I have an apartment just around the corner and it would be easy to find where it is so I would be a fool to even mislead anyone, this is a stunning property and should sell within the first few viewings.

Why Sax?

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

Sax is so popular because it is far enough inland to be “inland” and a traditional Spanish town yet it is only 30 minutes to Alicante Airport and 35 minutes to the beach and the nearest beach allows dogs.

Access is via the A31 Dual Carriageway Alicante to Madrid road which runs just outside of the town. Sax is superbly served by public transport and there are regular trains and buses to Alicante so you can go to the beach and not have to take your car, and now we are only eight 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 inexplicably we have one of them. After boarding you will be in Madrid in 2hrs 9mins for as little as 9€ or, there are other promotions from 23€.

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 in a variety of colour, and seemingly floating in the air, it 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 national and 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 a department store in the UK, 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 conversation.

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 12€ or less. For a special occasion, there is La Torreta but also there are great option such as La Braseria, Camila and La Senda. Coffee and toast for breakfast will cost no more than 2,50€ and the coffee is possibly the best in Europe. We have a Walking Group, two Golfing Societies, Ladies Who Lunch and lots more Social Activities to enjoy. Sax, it´s a great place to live.
