Designed in the 1950’s by the well known Spanish Architect Miguel Colomina to the owners exacting standards and requirements to provide what can only be described as one of the most stunning houses we have ever seen. The build itself for the main house is just under 2000m2 and is currently arranged to provide a mansion house and on the ground floor this comprises an impressive entrance hall with sweeping central marble staircase and bar area; a drawing room; formal dining room; breakfast room and a wood panelled study. On the first floor there is a galleried landing which leads to the master bedroom suite, with dressing room and en-suite shower room/WC; two bathrooms/WC; five double bedrooms; an additional dressing room and a first floor lounge, which was originally two further bedrooms which could easily be reinstated if required.
The accommodation does not stop there. There is an additional wing to the property which on the first floor provides a huge games room, with a lounge area and on the ground floor it provides guest accommodation offering two double bedrooms, one of which has en-suite facilities, a bathroom/WC and a lounge.
For staff, there is a self contained annex which has a bathroom/WC, double bedroom and store room that adjoins the main kitchen and service area to the house.
On the first floor, the floors have been finished in attractive parquet. Many of the rooms have fabric covered walls giving a feeling of opulence and splendour and this coupled with the size of rooms and the light that is let in by large windows throughout the property makes you realise that you are in a very special home.
The main house has many quality features, such as the unique sweeping stair case which leads to the galleried landing and the marble floors to the principle rooms on the first floor. Standing in grounds of some 9500m2 which are fully enclosed by red brick walls, which match those that the property has been constructed of, the house benefits from a large swimming pool area with surrounding terrace, gazebo, changing room and WC. Wide steps lead down in to the pool and the whole area is totally secluded.
The rear garden has a superb casita which was built featuring reclaimed 16th century timbers and
architectural features to create the most superb function room with kitchen area and WC. The focal point of this casita is the huge fireplace with BBQ and this building could be used to provide a self contained annexe or as a function room for Communions or Weddings. Also within the rear garden are two stables and a “mock” stream that meanders through the mature grounds.
To the front of the house is a carport for three cars and a garage/workshop which leads to a large pump
house, that houses two large water tanks and the pump for one of the two wells which provide the
property with its’ own water supply. There is ample parking for many cars and the area is approached via impressive electric gates with handsome gate posts topped with period lights, which match the exterior lighting and lamp posts.
Now this is not just a superb home, it also comes complete with a thriving business, which is totally separate from the main building. It is an Ibizan style “chill-out” bar and restaurant which is extremely popular with local residents. It can be found in what was once part of the extensive front garden and is accessed via identical gates to those that lead to the main house. The “chill-out” garden is arranged around a central water feature with external gazebo bar and individual seating areas. The whole area is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs and screened from the road by an ivy-topped brick wall.
The restaurant area can seat approximately one hundred and twenty to one hundred and fifty people under cover and what was once a gate house has been tastefully and lavishly extended to provide an internal bar area for the cooler months which leads to the dining room with impressive timber beams and ceiling and roller blinds, so that it can be open in the summer and enclosed in the winter months.
The bar and restaurant has a commercial stainless steel catering kitchen with storage rooms off and there are male and female toilet facilities.
This property not only provides a fantastic home and income with the way it is set up at the present time, but it could be used to create the most superb boutique hotel, restaurant and bar and offers a wealth of possibilities to any buyer.

Lounge. 7.9m x 4.8m
A bright and cosy lounge with a large and imposing Fireplace and a traditional Valencia vaulted ceiling. There are exposed beams and windows which overlook the rear gardens.
This lovely home is screened from the road by an Ivy topped red brick wall. Imposing double electric gates with large gate posts, topped by “antique” style lights lead to a large driveway which provides a wealth of parking for many cars. It leads to a carport for three vehicles and a garage/workshop. The front gardens are mature and planted with a wide variety of shrubs trees and plants. Dwarf evergreen hedges section off the individual grass and flower bed areas.
Approaching the house from the driveway, several steps lead down to the lawn area and entrance to the property. There is a covered seating area which leads through to the secluded swimming pool. The gardens to both the front and rear of the property are lit by “antique” style lamp posts and flood lights and the area is totally private and secluded.
The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn and there is a feature “mock” stream which meanders and makes its way through the mature trees. The rear garden, like the front, is enclosed by a high, red brick wall. There is a modern, double stable and a large storage building with pitched roof that houses the pumps for one of the two private wells that supply the water and irrigation for the property.
The swimming pool is an unusual shape and of a very good size. Wide steps lead down into it and the area is floodlit with a gazebo, WC and changing room. Again, this area is totally private.
Adjoining the swimming pool area and lawn is a delightful Casita 8m x 9.2, which was built by the owners out of 16th century reclaimed beams, timbers and architectural features that were saved from a property in Valencia.
This Casita is huge and is currently open plan. Its focal points being the 16th exposed beams and massive fireplace which has a BBQ grill and large canopy. There is also carved feature stonework and traditional Spanish door. There is also an air-conditioning Unit. The Casita is completely glazed on two sides and there is open plan access to the kitchen area which has fitted wall and floor mounted cupboards, marble worktops and a gas hob.
The Casita also has a Separate WC and could easily be used to provide a self contained annex for an elderly relative, or perhaps even accommodation for an owner/manager if the whole property were to be used as a boutique hotel.
Bar/Restaurant Jardin de Montemina
Jardin de Montemina was established approximately 5 years ago and now provides a very exclusive and stylish bar and restaurant that is popular with locals and people from the surrounding town.
Outside Bar Area
Set in what was once part of the front garden, with its mature palms, yuccas and attractive lawn area. It is approached via matching gates to that of the main house and path ways lead to the restaurant and a beautiful “chill-out” garden bar area which has been created with an Ibizan theme in mind.
Surrounding a central water feature there is a gazebo bar with fridges, sink and counter and individually grouped seating areas which are screened with muslin curtains have soft seating areas and day beds. The area has secluded lighting and there is a large crazy paved patio area with gazebo which provides additional seating area for the restaurant.
The restaurant has built an excellent reputation with local clientele. It has proved a popular venue for Communions and functions alike. It is able to cater for between one hundred and twenty and one hundred and fifty people.
The Main Bar Area 11.37m x 4.76m is air-conditioned and there is a sizable bar with ruby red marble counter with fridges and shelving. There are inset spot lights and double glazed windows and Off the bar is a small kitchen area with fitted cupboards and inset sink unit – ideal for the preparation of tapas. Within this building are toilet facilities for both ladies and gents and double glazed doors lead from the main bar area and the facilities area to the main.
The Restaurant is “L” shaped 15.8m x 5.5m
maximum and is an addition to the main bar area and the owners have carefully added it so that it naturally leads on to the outside bar area. Constructed of exposed timbers and beams, the side walls of the structure are roller blinds with UPVC windows. This means the area can be enclosed in the winter and open in the summer. The area benefits from air conditioning and it overlooks the garden and an attractive pond.
The Commercial Kitchen has been fitted with modern stainless steel appliances which comprises shelving, work surfaces and a six burner hob and To name just a few of the appliances, there is a double deep fat fryer and a hot plate. There is also a large stainless steel sink and extraction system. Beyond the kitchen are two long storage rooms which have fitted shelving and freezers. A private door also leads to the private front garden of the mansion house. Currently the only access from the bar to lead there.
If additional space was required to expand the bar further, this could be gained by utilising more of the front garden to the main house. The bar and restaurant arrangement is very well planned and for interested parties who can prove that they have the ability to purchase the property, accounts are available.
