(NEW LISTING) - *WOW FACTOR ALERT*- This grand Spanish mansion (VILLA EDEN) is located on an elite urbanization 5 mins from Gandia city, it is not a large urbanization, it has a handful of other large properties on large plots on the urbanization, but all of them private and well placed for fantastic views and good sun placement summer or winter time. The garden is full of mature Mediterranean plants and trees and is fully fenced and gated. What a bonus to be just a 13-minute drive to the golden, sandy beaches of Gandia playa and 5 mins drive to all amenities that Historic Gandia city has to offer along with the out of town shopping malls!
You enter the property via a wrought iron electric gate, up the long driveway with pretty stone walls with an abundance of bright pink bourganvilla that takes you to the huge garage space which can park at 3/4 cars, there is an internal staircase from the garage up to the main ground floor living level, or externally up some beautiful stone steps bordered by mature colourful plants and trees.
There are so many different places with benches to sit and take in the views around the plot, as you enter the pool area there is a magnificent dragon tree, an ancient olive tree, and the borders of the garden that surround the pool have sub-tropical mature species planted in abundance making the pool area very beautiful. The garden is irrigated and there are many dry-stone walls around, with external lighting within the garden and by the pool for evening swims! There is also a traditional BBQ and Paella cooking area.
There is a pool house with pump and filter, the pool itself is very large and measures 10m x 5m, it is tiled and has a deep end for diving with a springboard. The pool area is surrounded by an irrigated lawn. Overlooking the pool area are various arched Naias’ that give shade to sit or dine, or play table tennis under, you can watch the children or family enjoying the pool making a wonderful social area to enjoy your family and friends having a good time.
To the other side of the property is a large lawned garden with a stone seating area in the middle and various pretty stone pathways to the edge of the garden, again from the mansion are arched Naias overlooking this part of the garden too, giving valuable shade to sit under and dine under during the hotter summer months.
On entering the main living level, you are greeted by an entrance hall that takes you to a huge open plan lounge / dining area with central marble staircase. The large windows all have traditional Spanish wooden shutters, there is a fabulous large marble fireplace in the lounge too.
On this level there is a bathroom and an access door that takes you down to the garage. There is another separate room with a lounge area and traditional fireplace with an open fire that benefits from double doors out to the garden (this could be the 6th bedroom if required) this room also has fitted wardrobes / storage.
From the formal dining area, up a few steps to the large fully fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces, it is such a large space it boasts a breakfast area and a very useful pantry and storage room too, plus a large utility room with washing machine and large marble laundry sink with a door out to a patio area and traditional old stone water feature (not currently in use) which overlooks the formal lawn.
To the left-hand side of the entrance hall you find an arched doorway that takes you to a huge home office space with built in book cases, the wow factor continues through the property! There is an open galleried landing above the office space and another lounge space within this room too, the office and 3rd lounge (could be another bedroom if required) also has the bonus of double doors opening up on to the pretty naia and out to the pool terrace!

From this terrace you have wonderful views of the orange groves, mountains and a distant sea view. There is a large guest bathroom with double sinks off the landing space also, for the use of the other 4 bedrooms.
Annual costs: - €2000 which is €500 a quarter for the communal urbanization fee, the urbanization has a large swimming pool and tennis court solely for the use of the residents. The annual IBI tax (rates) is €1,700.
As this property is so close to the historic city of Gandia, there is some intermittent distant road noise, but when you are inside the house you cannot hear it. If you are living, there with the pool pump going, music or TVs on and normal everyday noise then it wouldn´t be noticeable.
This gorgeous property benefits from hot and cold centralized aircon throughout the house, on the ground floor water is heated via a gas boiler and on the 1st floor the water is heated via an electric water heater. The mansion has a large water deposit, mains electric, electric entrance gate and electric garage door, wow factor staircase and marble floors, traditional windows with wooden shutters and most having mosquito blinds too. There is a fabulous mature garden and wonderful views from terraces that surround the mansion!
