A Little Piece of Heaven.
currently advertised at €339,000
Just 200 metres from the Mediterranean shore line and about 150 metres above it is where you will find this beautiful modern open-plan detached villa with amazing panoramic views to both the sea and a nearby mountain range. (Tsunami-safe)!
The sea looks so close you could almost touch it!
It is situated on an upmarket urbanisation on the beautiful mountain of Cumbre Del Sol near Moraira and where the 2015 La Vuelta Tour d'España took place in August 2015.

The three bedrooms each enjoy having their own sea and mountain views, bathroom and separate terrace thereby providing added privacy for mixed generation families or frequent visitors.

THE LAYOUT OF THE VILLA IS AS FOLLOWS: -
The front door and entrance vestibule (1.5 m2) lead into a large, bright open plan lounge (6.27 x 3.53 m) with real feature Stone Fireplace having gas-log insert and a Hot/Cold Airco unit and double sliding glass doors to the main terrace and pool. There is a cupboard off the living room which houses the washing machine and some useful storage shelves.
The dining room (3.9 x 3.4) is off to one side through a typical Spanish arch and has a serving hatchway to the American style kitchen ( 3.14 x 2.09 m), with electric ceramic hob and electric oven. A double stainless sink unit, stone worktops, fitted fridge-freezer and ample storage cupboard space completes the kitchen.
To the other side of the living room is the first double bedroom (bedroom 1) (3.06 x 3.6 m) which has a fitted wardrobe and double glass doors to the main terrace. This room is pre-installed for airco.
Next door to this bedroom is bathroom 1(3.00 x 1.45 m) which is fitted with enclosed shower, WC. Hand washbasin with mirror and some marble shelves for toiletries, towels, etc. The double-actioned window looks out onto the garden. The bathroom also doubles up for daytime use from the living area.
A feature circular staircase leads up to the first floor.
This floor houses the double master bedroom and bathroom.
The master bedroom (bedroom 2) (3.33 x 3.14 m) has fitted wardrobes and double glass doors which lead out onto a semi-circular private terrace (15 m2) with quite remarkable and beautiful panoramic views. Airco is also pre-installed here but not fitted.
The bathroom (bathroom 2) (5 m2) has an enclosed shower unit, douche, WC and hand washbasin with mirror. The double actioned window looks down onto the garden below.
This has an area of circa 35 m2 in addition to the 8m x 4m kidney shaped pool with lights. The pool is maintained by the owners and routinely cleaned and checked for chemical balances. The owners can also recommend a most trusted, skilled and reliable Pool man who will carry out this work for around €800 a year including chemicals – a great deal! This includes the pool being cleaned around 70 times a year.
Lower Ground Floor:
A pleasant stroll from the front door along a path through the kitchen garden and its fig, mango, pomegranate, orange, lemon and mandarin trees leads to the apartment and its 50m2 terrace. The apartment is suitable for renting to bring in additional income or used as a Granny Flat or for adult teenagers, or visitors.
The door opens into a large bed-sitting room (bedroom 3) (3.6 x 3.6 m) currently housing twin beds, fitted wardrobe, fold down table and two chairs.
A small but functional kitchen (kitchen 2) (5.26 m2) fitted with Gas hob, electric oven, fitted fridge, work tops and storage cupboards makes, the apartment self-sufficient or can be used as a garden kitchen.
A very large luxurious bathroom (bathroom 3) (3.75 x 2.5 m) houses a corner bath with shower attachment, WC and hand washbasin.
At the end of this bathroom are 3 steps leading through a door into a two room storage area which the current owners use as a playroom and library (7.1 x 3.2 m) with masses of storage space (5.5 x 3.25 m).
Both these rooms are plastered, painted and with tiled floors, wall lighting and power sockets.
This area is not classed as habitational and cannot be sold or rented out as such but any owner can use it in any manner himself as we do. This area can be accessed via a different door outside of the apartment.
The large terrace is ideal for BBQ’s and parties because of its space and also a play area for some age-groups. (The area is over 50 m2).
There is a large detached garage (6.6 x 4.03 m internal) to the side of the villa adjoining the road which is fitted out with electrical lights, power and a remote-controlled up and over door. This room also has a great deal of storage space which the current owners have managed to half fill!
*Please note that the garage, as almost a 1000 more on Cumbre Del Sol, does not have a licence because when it had been constructed in 2004 the builder failed to secure a licence. The Town Hall has stated quite clearly that since it was not objected to by neighbours within the first 4 years it can stay in place. It is 12 years since it was built and no complaint has ever been received. We have no concerns about this whatsoever, However this building does not appear on the Escritura although its space for parking does.*
On the opposite side of the villa to the apartment there is a pump room (12.46 m2) with the controls for running the private pool and storing cleaning materials and equipment. The current owners have built a small but most convenient workshop area with a long sturdy workbench to store tools and carry out maintenance/repair work for the villa or other things whenever needed.
The villa is surrounded by garden on all sides. Some of it is flat but most is sloping. There are no grassed areas although it is possible to introduce some.
There are 4 independent watering systems with timers which the owners have not used for some time so some updating is needed but this would not be a major expense.
The owners have planted a great number of ornamental and fruit bearing trees such as: -
Jacaranda, Eucalyptus, Yellow-Mimosa, Pine, Fir, Palms, Yucca, Mandarin, Orange, Lemon, Fig, Kiwi, Mangos, Pomegranate, Grapes.
It is also possible to grow bananas in this garden.
The villa has recues (ornate wrought iron metal bars) on all windows and doors except the apartment and is very secure. There is a lockable metal gate between the garage and the house wall and the entrance vestibule has a similar metal gate followed by a thick and solid wooden door.
The pool terrace has a lockable solid-wood separate access door which can be used for any pool maintenance people and for added privacy. The Ground floor bedroom and living room doors to the terrace have lockable metal gates. The bedroom also has a Persian as (roll down shutter).
There is an alarm installed with 24/7 remote monitoring and the service from this company is excellent. Monthly service charge is around €33.There are also some security lights which operated on infra-red sensors at night-time.
The villa is on an upmarket urbanisation with Neighbourhood Watch and so security is very good all round. The current owners sleep very soundly in their bed at night so apart from the usual concerns of today regardless of where you live in this world – this villa is very secure and not isolated.
The villa is supplied with a Wi-Max symmetrical Broadband facility of 10Mbs upload and download received by a small aerial. This also incorporates a landline telephone operated over the internet and the owner is also able to use SKYPE for those extra-low-cost international calls through the computer.
There is a 2.4 metre satellite dish in the garden which still receives most UK channels despite major attempts and successes in starving many British Expats from receiving UK TV. Local companies do offer a variety of ways in which you can choose to receive your favourite channels wherever you come from – quite possibly without the need of the 2.4 metre dish.
House Tax (Rates)
The Spanish Inland Revenue imposes a tax on houses which compared to the UK is small. Currently we pay about €480 a year which by prior arrangement can be paid over 6 months with an interest charge of just €2.40 in total!!!
Car Tax Rates:
This has doubled over the last couple of years but is €120 a year or €20 a month over 6 months.
Rubbish has to be taken to any of the very many rubbish bins dotted around the mountain or general locality – but NOT garden waste!
This is subsequently collected by the usual rubbish-lorries. The annual cost for this is €120 or €20 per month for 6 months.
This is the two items added together and is collected from your bank as a lump sum of €240 p.a. or as €40 per month for 6 months.
There are a number of re-cycling stations in the area where you can take your garden waste, old electrical appliance, etc for free. There are heavy fines for anyone either dumping such items or mixing them up with domestic waste.
Water usage is measured at a metering box on the edge of the plot and billed every 3 months. It is no longer cheap here and the price per cubic metre (1,000 litres) goes from €0.10 to anything like €4.00 or more and so measured usage is not a bad way to start out.
The biggest user of water is the pool cleaning process where considerable amounts of dirty water need to be expelled on a regular basis and also the garden.
Average Monthly Cost €30 - €50.
Electricity is quite expensive if you have a limited income or savings. Whilst cost per unit is not a million miles off other European countries charges, there are a number of add-in charges which tend to raise the bar somewhat. Some of these charges have IVA (VAT) on them and then when they are added into the running total they are charged 21% IVA all over again.
Limiting the pool pump motor running period to 4-6 hours a day can make a great difference to the electricity bill.
The current owners try to mitigate some of these high costs of electricity by using the DAY/NIGHT tariffs which are currently available.
Average monthly costs are €150.
Cumbre Del Sol:
I have always felt very proud when writing to people from this special address “Cumbre Del Sol”.
Of course you may already know this area and I have no wish to bore you but if you don’t you should know that this ‘small’ mountain overlooking the beautiful seaport of Moraira to the South and Javea to the north is pretty magnificent! It is part of a peninsula that faces the East and of course the Mediterranean and looks across to Ibiza and Formentera which can be viewed most clearly from many parts of the mountain. To one side of Cumbre, there is a beautiful cove like beach which is just 5 minutes, drive from the villa. There are a number of footpaths with an abundance of fauna and flora that reach out over the top and provide stunning sea views.
There is a supermarket and pharmacy and some restaurants and the promise of more to come.
This cosmopolitan village includes many European nationalities and others from China, America, Russia and Japan. International relations are excellent and a far cry from what we see reported on TV about the world in general.
Were we to win the Lottery tonight, we would take our property off the market and extend it to enable us to keep our magnificent views of a lifetime!
Cumbre Del Sol is neatly positioned on the outskirts of Moraira a very romantic seaport town with beautiful beaches and a maze of restaurants catering for every conceivable nationality. Five to ten minutes by car takes you safely there. Parking is not free but it is cheap!
There is a costal road from Moraira which runs to Calpe and Calpe Rock. This road has circa 105 bends but always with a beautiful sea view so take your time and be safe. There are a number of small beach bars hidden away down side roads along the way just waiting for you to discover them!
Javea and Denia are two large seaports with beautiful beaches and masses of restaurants and only 20 minutes or so away. Benidorm is less than 30 minutes away with Alicante airport 60 minutes away and Valencia Airport 90 minutes.
There is always a great deal going on and according to the World Health Authority this area is one of the healthiest going.
The property is currently advertised with Agents at €350,000. Selling it privately enables us to offer a serious discount.
Agents here charge 5% of the selling price plus 21% IVA (tax). But we have stripped more than this out of our selling price – indeed 10% in total.
