Large old Valencian farmhouse, Sierra de Bernia, Benissa - Costa Blanca
Buying a farm in Valencia: This truly fantastic and idyllic 300 year old farmhouse in ruins lies like an eagle's nest high above all human activity. Close to the Costa Blanca (25 minutes by car) and within the municipal boundaries of Jalon or Xalo Here you can still experience what total tranquillity is, you literally only hear nature here. The Finca is flanked on the right side by the Sierra de Bernia, and at the back protected by a ridge and is so sheltered. But to the front the house has an enormous panoramic view over the mountains up to the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. Who wouldn't want to wake up to such a view!
This finca is a very attractive and historically interesting place that offers many opportunities for someone who likes a challenge and is looking for peace and quiet. For generations a Valencian farming family from the municipality of Jalon lived and worked here. It is a unique project because of its extraordinary size. The farm, built of natural stone, consists of two houses with different extensions, stables and Corrales. The built area is +/- 500 m2. The size of the land is 200.000 m2 (20 hectares) which guarantees lasting peace and quiet. This is one of the few old farmhouses of which the land size is still original. Often these large finca's are crumbled by inheritance, something that did not take place here.
This is not a place for bargain hunters, but for people who appreciate the special and love peace and quiet and space.
Buying a farmhouse in Valencia: Because of the vacancy for decades, this finca is in need of a major restoration. Once restored to its former glory, it will be a truly unique object that knows no equal on the Costa Blanca. House and stables are built in natural stone and also has its old Bodega and grinding rooms, in short it has never been modernised and that can be an advantage. Many of these converted buildings have been totally ruined and stripped of all their character. Part of the land is protected land and therefore this building cannot be extended. However, this protection also ensures that something cannot suddenly be built next to or in front of it. If this project is too big for you look at the page of this Finca Mestre farmhouse or this much more modest project also a small Spanish farmhouse in ruins with a building plan approved by the municipality.
