This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Spanish history. The 18th Century San Juan Bautista farmhouse or Mas de Calces built in 1750 is one of the best examples of the ‘riurau’ which is a rural construction and its principal function was in the production of raisins and also in this particular case almonds. The farmhouse is situated on the banks of the Tossal de Calces and it is ideally situated in between the beautiful village of Altea la Vella and the famous town of Altea.
This is a very large property and it requires renovation. It has both mains water and electricity.
The main living space is on the first floor which is 200M2 and this currently is laid out into a large living space, large kitchen which could be extended even further to create a living dining area with very grand proportions, utility room, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. It has the original terracotta tiled floor which is in very good condition and lots of amazing original features. The upper level is open and requires full renovation.
The lower level is an annexe with a separate one bedroom apartment with a large kitchen. This requires full refurbishment. Everything in this building has been removed by a previous tenant.
It is on a large plot of land which has another separate finca which could be developed into a separate home and also another building which is currently a large toilet / bathroom block with wheelchair access.
The plot is split into two – the larger plot of 15,000M2 it is possible to get planning to build another home.
This property does back onto the motorway so if you don’t want to hear cars, then this is not the property for you. On the plus side, you are very close to the AP7 and easy walking distance into both Altea la Vella and Altea and set in a beautiful countryside location without being isolated.
