This is a home that provides joy as you wander through it, the stunning scenery is a prime reason for living here and provides a magic to life in this hillside village.
Warm Mediterranean air, scented with pine, envelops you in its gentle embrace, the majestic peaks of the Parpalló-Borrell national park beckon; just below you, through the trees sunlight glints off the surface of your swimming pool and, with the beaches of Gandia just twenty minutes away, this haven in the hills feels like heaven personified.
19 years ago the current owners bought this distinctive house, moving from not far away in the village, "it's such a great place to live, once we came to La Drova for the first time we realised we wouldn't want to be anywhere else' and for the last seventeen years this has been a fabulous permanent home, one that has created wonderful memories for family and friends.
There's a sense we get from our conversation that La Drova is not only a great community, it is quite a traditional one, still very Spanish rather than diluted too much by outside influences.
The area is well known for walking and cycling and some of you may have discovered it from those pursuits. For others this is a delightful discovery whether you are coming from Valencia, Benidorm, Alicante or one of many other popular destinations. In fact La Drova and Barx seem to be wonderfully situated to enjoy and discover so many things, so many places. It is a lovely retreat from the hubbub.
The house has a striking appearance, individual, and you can tell whoever built this home cared about it. The delightfully shaped step in the hallway has a softness to it that draws you to the beautiful staircase.
This hall feels like a room in itself, a great welcome and prepares you for the lovely living space that provides two complementary but individual seating areas, the dining area beyond. One of the terraces laps around the rear of the home and you can't help but be drawn through the doors and onto it to enjoy that stunning view. You'll be forgiven for not wanting to leave this space and see the rest of the home but do make sure to continue, there's the kitchen to see too and if you want a truly super view, just wait till you step out onto the terrace above!
That staircase we mentioned leads to the first floor, to double bedrooms and the study/fourth bedroom, to that upper terrace!
This is a home that you will want to make some changes to and, once you have ‘made it you’, the joy of living here will hopefully keep you in its awe for a similar length of time to our clients' ownership.Get in touch if you like this home.
