This romantic country house above Mojacar is perched on a hill overlooking the white Moorish village of Mojacar, the Mediterranean Sea, and backed by the Sierra Cabrera. The current owners came across this partly destroyed cottage and immediately fell in love with its unique location. The renovation took them four years and the result is a charming villa with quality finishes that is tastefully decorated in Moorish style, true to the history of the village. The house is set on a 2720 sq.m rural plot.
It is conveniently located 2 minutes by car (a pleasant 5 to 10 minute walk) outside Mojacar village, and is only a 10 minute drive to the beaches of Mojacar. A large municipal pool is available in the village, just 5 minutes from the property.
The villa is set behind a garden of fruit and olive trees. The house has a built area of 157 sq.m. on one floor and has terraces all around the property. One terrace with porch faces east-southeast down the valley, to the village and the sea. It is a remarkable place to sit and to take in the views, the sunrises and moonrises.
The roof terrace provides 360 degrees of incredible views. The west facing terrace is perfect for sun bathing and has an open air shower. There is a south facing terrace at the entrance of the cottage with three mature trees that provide plenty of natural shade. It sets the tone for the romantic atmosphere throughout the property.
From this terrace you enter into a small hall that opens to the kitchen. This is a huge, fully equipped kitchen with Moorish tiles, a fireplace and large island that would make every chef happy. At either side of the kitchen is a guest suite, with ensuite bathroom. Each of the guest bedrooms are delicately decorated and have access to one or more of the terraces.
Some steps up from the kitchen is a large area where you find a formal dining area, and two lounges. One of the lounges is an inviting chill out room with sea and village views.
Off the lounge, and a few steps up, is the master bedroom with study area and access to the eastern terraces. There is a seating area and there are wall to wall fitted wardrobes, as well as a comfortable en suite bathroom.
This country house combines a peaceful and romantic ambiance with easy access to the village and to wonderful walks in the sierra that backs the property. The views from each corner of the terraces are just breathtaking. Perched on the hill as it is, the starry night skies are a wonder to behold.
The cottage has running water, electricity, internet and satellite TV. The property has also the right to install an open air water deposit, if the future owner would like a pool with the house. There are many good restaurants in the village, as are boutiques, shops and bars of which some offer live concerts. More entertainment and large supermarkets can be found at the beach area just ten minutes from the property.
This is an exceptional property in an even more extraordinary location.
