Pretty 4 bedroom townhouse in the idyllic peaceful hamlet of La Carroja.La Carroja is one of the villages that make up the famous “ Ruta de los 8 pueblos “ ( the route of the 8 villages ) belonging to the totally unspoilt Vall de Gallinera. A mountainous area that gives you a feeling of having gone back in time.History is rich in these parts and dates back to times of the conquest of the Moorish leader Al Azraq, battles, expulsions, and hideaways in many castles that were built in this area.La Carroja is made up of one long narrow street and three town squares. From the Church square there is a path leading down to the municipal swimming pool belonging to this village offering cool bathing on hot summer days and a bar restaurant.The village is extremely quiet but has not been left in the dark ages, as there is fibre optics internet connection available, making working at home a very interesting proposition as any one of the four bedrooms can be easily turned into a study / office area / work space.The over 200 year old building has been built using local stone, which can be appreciated on the façade of the house and also on parts of the interior of these thick authentic walls.The ground floor consists of : The living room, with decorate stone fireplace, bathroom and a scullery which leads out to an open interior courtyard with BBQ and decorative pergola covered with jasmine.The kitchen lays to the front of the house with views to the street and is next to the ground floor bedroom, with views to the opposite street.The upper floor of the house, accessed by an original interior staircase , holds the remaining three bedrooms. Of which two look out on to opposite streets, and the third leads out onto a small interior balcony area looking out towards the interior courtyard. A large attic over the third bedroom is accessible by ladder and is currently used for storage.The property has a new roof, mains electricity, mains water and fully functional plumbing and can be lived in straight away with room enough room to refurbish as desired.Vall de La Gallinera is made up of several small villages each with their own bars and restaurants and although being in the heart of the Spanish countryside with no urbanizations to be seen, bigger towns such as Pego, Ondara and Gandia are easily accessed in less than 35 minutes, where large supermarkets, petrol stations, motorway access and highways can be found.The area of Vall de Gallinera is famous for it’s produce of cherries, and the frothy white blossom can be seen in March. A great time to go hiking on the numerous hiking and cycling routes in this valley.The mountain of the Foradada looks down over the eight little villages and in Spring and Autumn there is a solar alignment through the large hole at the top of the mountain, casting light on the remains of the old 17th century Franciscan convent.Don’t wait to discover the charming heritage of the Vall de Gallinera and it’s inhabitants.Useful links :https://www.pressreader.com/spain/costa-blanca-news-south-edition/20180216/282647507990574Cherry blossom :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKbcIUylcJMDocumentary :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxEjgZvXSfQ
