Alicante is known above all for its beaches, but this time it is the mountains that take centre stage, which can be reached via a convenient motorway in forty minutes and where you will find a variety of spectacular landscapes, such as the almond groves, which are beautiful when in bloom; the large pine forests criss-crossed by signposted paths to enjoy walking through them and where small water springs spring up; and if you like snowy landscapes, wait until winter arrives. It is in these beautiful surroundings that we find this magnificent home.
You will be pleased to know that it is a house located in the Barranc de Horta de Torremanzanas area, on a 23-hectare estate, renovated in 1987, just 6 kilometres from the village of Torremanzanas (Alicante).
The Finca is totally self-sufficient as it has its own water well and solar panels with wind turbine.
The property is distributed over two floors with a total built area of 435 m² distributed between living area, porch and garage. On the ground floor there is a large hall and distributor that gives access to the house, the garage with the engine room and connects to the back terrace. In the house we find a laundry area and pantry, a toilet with shower, an office with a small naya, open kitchen with office, living room with fireplace and access to a glazed terrace facing west and stairs leading to the first floor. On the first floor we find 1 bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom with bathtub, 3 double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, 1 bathroom with shower and a single bedroom with access to an east facing terrace.
From the ground floor living room there is access to the glazed terrace and from there to an open terrace with a barbecue and a wood-burning oven. From here there is also access to the automatically irrigated vegetable garden, the mini-golf course, the playground, the swimming pool with an easily accessible outdoor purifier and heating blanket, the chicken coop and fruit trees with cherry, apple, apricot, peach, pear, loquat, orange, mandarin and persimmon trees. In different points of the plot we can find some benches strategically placed to enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the surroundings.
General flooring of stoneware imitation clay, smooth walls, exterior carpentry of aluminium with Climalit and mosquito nets, interior carpentry in wood. The hot water, as well as the kitchen, works with butane gas bottles.
The heating is by means of pellet cookers and has 4 units distributed throughout the house. It also has heat accumulators and towel heaters that work thanks to the energy provided by the solar panels.
The property has its own approved and legalised well with a piping system equipped with filters to the pools, which by means of a hydraulic pump transfers the water to the water tank of the property. It also has a system for collecting rainwater from the roofs in 8 jars of 500 litres each.
Electricity is provided by solar panels with wind turbine and batteries, all of which are automated, although it is also connected to the mains.
The 23 hectare estate is made up of several plots of different sizes with a variety of trees such as almond trees, olive trees, pine trees and scrubland. The farm is in full production and harvests both olives (an average of 4,000 kg per year with an average yield of 800 litres of oil) and almonds of the Marcona and Mollar varieties.
Torremanzanas is a peaceful village in the interior of Alicante, about 40 minutes from Campello and its beaches. Its surroundings are mid-mountain (800 metres above sea level), very wooded, agricultural and incredibly natural. Ideal for nature lovers. It has all the necessary basic services (bakeries, bars, restaurants, bank, health centre, butcher, supermarket, market, etc...) and about 800 inhabitants. It is easily accessible from the regional road to Jijona.
