If you are looking for peace and quiet in stunning surroundings then this restored 200 year old farmhouse in the heart of the Benifassa national park near Vallibona in the region of Castellon (Costa Azahar).
While this is a secluded property, it is just a few hundred metres from a the CV-111 road giving access to Vallibona to the west and the slightly larger town of Rossel to the East. Castellon Airport (served by Bristol and London) is about 1 hour away and the coast is a similar distance.
While the farm house is legally registered, it is “off grid” with no access to mains water or electricity, however it has two 15,o00 litre water deposits and a generator and is prepared for the fitting of solar power or a wind turbine. It would also be possible to drill a well.
With 300m2 of built area consisting of 6 bedrooms and large living areas spread over 2 floors this is a substantial property. It comes with almost 8 hectares of farmland (about the equivalent of 8 football pitches) with olive trees and a hunting licence. There are uninterrupted views of the countryside. The owner tells us that as there is no light pollution the night sky is breathtaking.
There is a wood fired oven in the kitchen.
The property has been owned by one family since 2009 who under took a great deal of restoration including replacing the entire roof, remodelling the interior repairing the exterior and interior walls, replacing the waste system and landscaping the area surrounding the property. To complete the restoration they recommend installing the solar energy or turbine and heating for the winter months.
Make no mistake, this is a truly rural property however if you are looking to enjoy the stunning surroundings and live a off grid, sustainable lifestyle or are looking for somewhere to enjoy exceptionally peaceful holidays then this may be the perfect property.
