Casa De Brisas Frescas: Property for sale in Vera
When this luxury villa featured in a recent British reality TV series, the narrator described it as “stunning”. Sitting on a plot measuring just under 10,000 square metres, with beautiful, landscaped gardens to the front and with a natural landscape to the rear, this imposing property offers spacious accommodation, including a self-contained, one bedroom apartment annexe.
During these challenging times, when Europe is experiencing an unprecedented energy crisis, the villa benefits from a large solar installation which not only produces hot water and heats the swimming pool but will potentially produce electricity bills of around €20 per month.
Casa de Brisas Frescas is distributed over three levels with a basement garage, ground floor and first floor measuring a total of 421m2. The main house offers three double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms and one with a “Jack and Jill” door to the family bathroom.
In addition, the property includes a spacious, self-contained apartment annexe, with a large double bedroom, bathroom and substantial, open plan living area which provides direct access to the pool terrace. The property is, therefore, ideal for a multi-generational family and offers exciting potential as a bed and breakfast.
Measuring 260m2, the ground floor comprises a large hall with stairs leading to the first floor and access to the basement garage.
To the front of the property the spacious study is ideal for remote working, with double aspect windows and doors leading to the front balcony. Alternatively, this room would make an ideal fifth bedroom, with potential to easily add an en-suite bathroom.
Through double doors, the hall leads to the dining room with access to the lounge, kitchen-diner, ground floor bedroom and family bathroom.
The lounge benefits from an Extraflame automatic pellet burner and triple aspect windows with doors opening onto the front and rear terraces. The super large kitchen-diner, with another lounge area, is equipped with modern, bespoke units by Santos, a dedicated bar area and a round breakfast bar. High-quality appliances include a Neff induction hob and extractor; Siemens fan oven, microwave and warming drawer; Bosch integrated dishwasher; Whirlpool integrated fridge freezer and a Cata wine cooler. Next to the kitchen is the utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a fridge freezer and tumble dryer. The kitchen opens onto the outdoor dining area and pool terrace.
The bedroom on this floor has a “Jack and Jill” door to the main bathroom with sink, wc, bidet and shower.
The adjoining guest apartment is accessed via the kitchen of the main house and also has its own independent entrance from the pool terrace. There is one large, double bedroom and a bathroom with corner bath and overhead shower, wc, and bidet. The large lounge-dining room and open plan kitchen is fitted to high standard with a fridge freezer, dishwasher, integrated fan oven and microwave, wine cooler, induction hob and patio doors out to pool terrace.
Measuring 105m2, the first floor features a spacious landing and two ensuite bedrooms. The master bedroom features electric underfloor heating, a three-metre, feature tower which aids cooling in the summer months, a walk-in dressing room with large, fitted wardrobes, and patio doors opening onto the large, south-facing roof terrace with extensive views to the sea and mountains. The sizeable ensuite bathroom includes a rain shower, built-in furniture, wc, bidet, and wall heaters. The spacious second bedroom has double aspect windows with distant sea views and an ensuite bathroom with shower, sink and wc.
Stairs from the hall lead to the basement garage measuring 53m2 with space for one car, ample storage and workspace, and the gasoil central heating boiler. The electric up-and-over door incorporates pedestrian access.
To the side of the villa there is a large, double car port.
The kitchen opens onto a covered dining area with glass curtains and electric fly screens. This in turns leads to the south-facing pool terrace which offers a high degree of privacy. The saltwater pool is warmed by a solar heating system with a supplementary air-source heat pump and has an in-pool electric cover; in the summer months the pool is typically heated above 32°C. A separate jacuzzi spa accommodates six persons, and there is an outdoor WC, outdoor shower and pool shed.
The outdoor kitchen with sink, built-in barbeque and paella burner is adjacent to the raised seating area with views to mountains. The terrace leads to the north side of the property, via a balcony overlooking the rear garden. There is ample secure parking on this side of the property and a further storage shed. Gates on the pool terrace also lead to the side and front terraces, the car port and the rear garden.
Measuring approximately one hectare, the grounds are approached through the electric double front gates opening onto the landscaped front garden with a large reservoir behind the front wall. This is fed using agricultural water which irrigates the extensive planting using an automatic system via six individual zones. In total there are some 25 palm trees; over 80 olive trees which typically produce around 400 kilos of olives per annum; 20 orange trees and other citrus including lime and grapefruit; a mango tree, a pomegranate tree, four fig trees, almond trees and a grape vine. There are two chicken sheds in a secure run with automatic doors.
A large timber shed, close to front gates, provides storage for two motorcycles. To the rear of the property a large, underbuilt pool shed houses pumps and heating controls for the pool.
There is secure fencing around entire property and remote-controlled electric gates to front. Further double gates provide secure access to the side parking area. The property is protected by an 8-camera CCTV system, security floodlights and a monitored alarm. All accessible windows are protected by ornamental rejas.
As mentioned above the property benefits from a large solar installation to provide hot water, heat the swimming pool and provide electricity which, with the recently introduced feed-in tariff, should produce bills no higher than €20 per month. All rooms are cooled and heated by inverter aircon units, whilst gasoil fired central heating provides backup throughout in the cooler months. Power has recently been upgraded to 9.2 kwh potencia.
Whilst the villa enjoys a peaceful rural location and offers total privacy, it is just 3kms to the centre of Vera and a 12-minute drive to the beach at Vera Playa. Mojacar is around 15kms away. Almeria airport is a 45 minutes’ drive, Murcia airport is 1 hour 20 minutes, Alicante airport is 2 hours and Malaga airport is 2 hours 45 minutes.
