This two bedroom detached villa is located just on the outskirts of the sleepy Spanish village of Gaianes in the province of Alicante. It is approximately ten minutes drive from Muro de Alcoy, making it an ideal location for someone looking for a quiet way of life, yet within close proximity of a town and its’ facilities.
The vendors have owned the property for some nine years and in that time they have installed aluminium framed double glazed windows which are finished in a natural wood grain effect. They have fly screens and roller shutters too.
The accommodation is arranged to provide two double bedrooms, a large lounge with attractive corner fireplace with wood burning stove, a shower room and WC and a fitted kitchen with dining room off. If a third bedroom was required for guests, what is presently used as a garage/store has a bathroom at one end and although it needs renovation, the whole building could be made to offer a guest annex.
The villa stands on a good sized plot which we have been advised by the owners is some 2500m2 and it is on two levels with only a few steps difference in height. The lower level is laid to lawn and screened by shrubs, whilst the upper level where the villa sits is easily maintained with gravelled area and a pool terrace, the pool being 9m x 4m. There are shrubs, climbers and roses and all this is topped off by stunning views to the mountains and the countryside.
Gaianes, as we have said, is a ten minute drive to Muro de Alcoy. You will find everything you need from shops, banks, bars and restaurants and it also allows easy access to the motorway that runs to Alicante, approximately forty minutes away and Valencia, which is around an hour away.
The countryside is stunning and it is a great location for walkers and mountain bikers alike.

This property is set on a plot that the owners tell us is around 2500m2. There is also an additional piece of land across the road that could be used as a vegetable plot.
The main plot is arranged on two levels just a few steps difference in height. The lower level is very private and screened by shrubs and laid mainly to lawn and the satellite dish for English TV is also located there.
The level where the villa sits is very easily maintained having been laid to gravel and terrace. It is approached via double gates to a parking area that would easily accommodate eight cars. The garden has been planted with roses and shrubs and there is a large 9m x 4m filtered pool with terracing and a BBQ area. To the side of it is a garage/workshop 5.5m x 3.6m which has glass doors. It houses the pool filter and to the rear there is a bathroom, shower and WC with electric water heater. Whilst the whole building does require upgrading, it could be turned in to a fabulous guest annex.
The plot is fenced and enclosed and there is an additional pedestrian access to the rear boundary to allow quicker access to Gaianes.
