Villa for Sale in Vera, Almería
This large and impressive home is located just 1.5km from the popular resort town of Vera.
Set in a quiet location and with great facilities on your doorstep, this stylish villa really does offer the best of both worlds. Privacy, seclusion and great views but with easy access to Vera and its facilities as well as the E15 motorway giving access to the rest of the Almeria coastline.
The great location is just the start of things… the villa itself does not disappoint!
Built in the Moorish Hacienda style, the villa has a first floor tower which allows views in all directions across the surrounding countryside and mountains. The villa is accessed directly from a tarmac road and the gated entrance leads into a long driveway flanked by olives trees and palms.
The driveway leads to a large parking area, a carport area offering shade and the garage with further access around the whole villa to the swimming pool area at the back of the property. This makes for easy maintenance when required and the low maintenance gardens ensure that you are not tied to the gardens!
There is a ramped access up to the property ideal for those with mobility issues and there are other steps up to the villa.
Accommodation and layout of the property…
The entrance to the villa leads into a large hallway with a guest cloakroom which also has a shower. Stairs lead down to a private garage and storage room.
The living room has dual aspect windows and a striking feature fireplace. The windows overlook the gardens and the surrounding countryside and doors lead out to the large terrace which is perfect for entertaining and with part of the terrace open and part of it covered, it is the perfect space to enjoy both night and day.
Outside space is always important in Spain and this property comes with areas to enjoy the sunshine or shade – perfect for sunbathing or an alfresco lunch in the shade.
A separate dining room is located between the living room and the kitchen and again has double doors leading out to the outside terracing.
The kitchen is often described as the “heart of the home” and this one is no different – fully fitted with a range of wall and base level units topped off with granite work surfaces. There is a central island unit adding to preparation space and space for a breakfast table. Built in appliances include an oven, hob and double fridge/freezer.
A utility room is separate from the kitchen and is home to the washing machine and further storage.
A study or home office is located on the ground floor with a feature fireplace.
Currently, on the ground floor there is a large double bedroom with a fully fitted bathroom and a further bedroom suite with an en-suite bathroom and a separate lounge area. This sitting room could easily be used as another bedroom but it works extremely well as the master bedroom suite.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find a double bedroom suite accessed by a beautiful ancient double wooden door.
The large suite has a separate seating area, an en-suite bathroom with a corner bath and shower column. There is also a separate dressing room. This master bedroom has a large private terrace and has air conditioning and underfloor heating.
The land and gardens…
As mentioned already, the villa comes with a number of terrace spaces to enjoy at different times of day and night – open or shaded and all of them with lovely views of the gardens and surrounding countryside.
At the rear of the villa is the spectacular swimming pool and sun terrace. The pool itself is large with an infinity end with stunning views across the countryside to the mountains in the distance.
The terrace areas are large with a terrific shaded area which can be used as an outside living space or to take shade when enjoying the pool.
