Ideally located between the village and the beaches of Mojacar, lies villa El Rancho. This luxury villa with guest apartment is well maintained and located in Las Huertas. It offers the perfect balance between peaceful country living with its 20,000 sq meters of land and the buzzing summer beach activity at just 1,5 km from the property.
A sweeping drive through the orange grove leads you to the villa. At the entrance of the villa is a covered terrace with ample seating and panoramic views of the land and the beautiful white village of Mojacar.
The 150 square meter villa with over 56 square meters covered terraces is built over one floor with one small studio / guest bedroom on the first floor. Via a sunny entrance hall you reach a spacious lounge diner with an abundance of natural light that comes through five pairs of large French doors. Three double doors open up to the spacious porch in front of the pool. The two double doors on the opposite side have Juliet balconies and overlook the fruit trees and the surrounding countryside. A bespoke, three-sided, glass, log fire provides a focal point in the lounge. There is a spacious, newly-refurbished, white Italian-style kitchen with a central island and ample cupboard space next to the lounge. From the kitchen an outside staircase leads to the orange grove and the guest apartment.
Around the pool terrace and porch are three bedrooms. The main bedroom with en suite luxury bathroom covers one wing. It is a spacious room with large fitted wardrobes, natural light and french doors that open directly to the terrace.
A short hallway at the end of the lounge leads to two double bedrooms, one with patio doors to the swimming pool and gardens, and a family bathroom.
A small studio bedroom with lots of natural light is located at the top of a short flight of stairs; this room has easy access to an expansive roof terrace with 360 degree views. There is air conditioning throughout the main living areas of the villa.
The lower part of the house has been converted into a 70,68 square meter self-contained apartment with separate access. This accommodation has a double bedroom, a new large bathroom with shower and bath, and a lounge. In one corner of the lounge there is a pre- installation to fit a kitchenette.
In addition to the 57 square meter garage and its storage space, there is a separate building next to a reservoir, and ample parking next to the villa.
Most of the 20,000 sq meters of land of ‘El Rancho’ is used for the cultivation of mainly oranges, lemons and olives. The lawns around the villa could easily accommodate a tennis court. All these areas benefit from an irrigation system that is fed from a natural well on the land. The terrain leads to open, level countryside, that can be used to generate a substantial income when linked to agricultural and leisure activities. These may include an equestrian centre, donkey sanctuary or a glamping.
The original building license issued by the local authorities makes it possible to extend the size of the villa because the original allowance has yet to be fully utilised.
‘El Rancho’ is close to the Cabo de Gata natural park of outstanding beauty, an observatory, a water park, the caves of Sorbas, an outdoor activity centre, several sailing clubs, scuba diving centres and a natural desert, with theme park: Mini Hollywood, that has been used by several famous directors as a location for a number of popular movies. There are four golf courses within the local area.
The closest airport is Almeria, at 40 minutes. Via the tollroad, you can also reach the airport of Murcia San Javier in 1h15 and the airport of Corvera, Murcia that will open end of 2018. Alicante airport is a two hour drive.
