Town house in Sax
- Alicante, Sax, Costa Blanca
A very tastefully reformed townhouse in the cultural heart of Sax and as close as you can get to the iconic 13th Century Castle now reduced to only 45,000€
There are two ways to consider this beautiful townhouse, one is as a family home and the other as a marvellous opportunity for an Airbnb operation as the granting of a tourist license would be a formality and the location means that there is so much to do within walking distance and Sax is such a great base for a holiday, added to which with Sax being so successful as the home of blinds and canopies there is a real opportunity to attract business people coming for meetings. The hotel in Sax is almost permanently fully booked and charges 82€ per night. Bearing in mind that each bedroom in the townhouse has a bathroom and that one bedroom and bathroom are downstairs there is potential to rent out the upstairs only or the whole house.
So, onto the house itself, the lounge/diner is a lovely long room with air conditioning for both warm and cool air and a cosy television area. The kitchen is fitted out superbly with modern units and there is enough space for a breakfast table and a door out to a “smoking area” and steps up to the terrace. The double bedroom is in the old cave house part and there is a big bathroom on the same level.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms and two superbly fitted bathrooms. The main bedroom has an exterior door leading out onto the terrace with extraordinary views and a wonderful place to eat out and to put a BBQ.
One important note is that there is no car access to the road that the house is located on but there is parking within 70 metres and that house can be approached by steps (32) most directly or by a gentle slope.
It really has to be viewed to get a feel of the house and the photos, whilst offering an overview of the property, do not do justice to how lovely it is.
Sax is a very friendly "Castle" town with all the amenities you need. It has large Supermarkets: a new Consum with private parking, Spar, Hiperber as well as an indoor market and a weekly outdoor market on Mondays which is a popular social event for the town.
There is also a wide range of restaurants (20+) and lots of bars, a modern medical centre, 2 primary schools, a high school, a private school, an excellent English speaking veterinary, all sorts of shops including a popular local wine maker (bodega) San Blas. Sax has a very good hotel, Fuente el Cura and a train station to Alicante, Valencia and Madrid.
The castle which dominates the town dates back a thousand years and is lit up every evening to provide gorgeous views day and night.
Fiestas play a big part of local life, there are several throughout the year, the main one being the Moros y cristianos, which is a week long party with lots of dressing up, fireworks, music and community spirit and socialising.
The city Elda & Petrer is a short 10 minute drive, it has a large Hospital with English speaking doctors, a huge range of bars and restaurants, indoor shopping center, big international gym, Carrefour, Aldi, Lidl, Cinema with English movies shown weekly, bowling and fast food outlets.
Alicante airport, city and beaches is only 35 minutes drive away
