Bedrooms 6
Bathrooms 4
Build size 657m²
Private Pool
 

The charming property is an intriguing hybrid, with the outward appearance of a large local farmhouse, the inside space and style of a compact North European country house, and the contour hugging, traditional Mediterranean climate friendly layout & configuration that optimizes comfort from sun, shade and wind conditions.

It comprises 657m² constructed area (528m² net) before considering a 10 x 5m pool and a full-size tennis court. The accommodation provides 4 reception rooms plus a farmhouse kitchen and terrace on the upper entry level, 6 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms around a lower patio, and two more bathrooms in the pool, changing annex. This patio is planted, shaded and furnished under the arches in the Cordobes style derived from the Arab concept of a Patio being the meeting place for the residents, with separate units of living accommodation, accessed by separate doors leading off the patio. The sea breeze is channelled into the patio, and thence into the accommodation, where all rooms have cross ventilation, and little or no direct sun impact on windows—most of which are shielded.

The dining room has a large open fire, and is laid for a family group of six in the photo, but the main table can be extended to sit ten or twelve on one table, with an additional small table often used for 2/3 children. This room leads into an open terrace with 270 degree views, of Mojacar down to the sea, the Bedar village, and the tree covered hills behind. The terrace is presently arranged with a breakfast table for four which catches the morning sun and there is ample space for a larger table/dining setting.

The three other reception rooms are linked and create generous space for around 15 people in a traditional fireside drawing room, a spacious high ceiling ‘glazed’ terrace with ceiling fan and marble bar, plus a snug complete with a Chesterfield & antique wood-burning stove.

The six bedrooms are grouped into three suites of two, and each suite has a separate door to the Patio Cordobes. The largest suite has two bed/bath pairs totalling over 50m² has eastward shaded views over a vine covered area and a fragrant hedge. The second family suite has a large bedroom, walk in cupboard, and artist’s porch, with a Jacuzzi bathroom shared with a smaller bedroom suitable for two children. The third guest suite with two double bed and a spacious bathroom is under the dining room with private lower patio access and separate stairs to the dining room, kitchen & terrace.

A much-used feature of the property is the pool area, with covered barbecue & changing annex. There is a wide selection of sunbathing or shaded areas which are all invisible from the road with trees or shrubs. The established flower/shrub garden from the lower parking to the patio entrance also shelters the steps down to the full-sized tennis court; this is surrounded on two sides by walls/fences and two by trees.

Given that Bedar has over 330 fine, warm days in most years, eating outside is a key aspect of the property and the secret to comfort and convenience is availability of venues that suit temperature, sun, and wind conditions. This property has four built in al-fresco options… The barbecue area next to the pool, a traditional wood grille and sink; the marble table seats 6 for family use and trestle tables with sunshades can extend capacity to over 20.

The antique wooden table under the vine in the east garden seats six comfortably with ample room for four more in a second table. The area catches the sea breeze up the dry river bed at the east side of the property, is shaded by the vine and substantially out of most direct sun after midday, because of the alignment of the building.

The lower patio has a cushioned seat at one end in semi shade, and this combined with a rectangular table provide tapas/drinks room for 6/8 people. Particularly suited to light post tennis refreshment in the early evening, with the sea breeze and traditional fountain both augmenting the fresh, cooling sensation.

A stone table with antique tiles is located in the upper entrance close to both the main door and the back door of the kitchen. This catches the midday/afternoon sun in the winter, whilst being protected from the wind. The whole courtyard can be lit, so is also suitable for summer evening meals, with close proximity to the kitchen that facilitates the creation and serving of elaborate dishes.

Bedar village is only 15 mins easy walk (tarmac road) away. The village is well-equipped with four bar/restaurants, two food shops, bakery, bank/ATM, hairdresser, pharmacy, tobacconist and a clinic. Bedar gives easy access (less than 30 minutes drive) to the numerous beaches of Mojacar Playa and Vera, with their ancient town centres, the traditional, albeit more modern, Andalusian villages of Los Gallardos and Turre, complete with several golf courses in the vicinity. The port of Garucha has a famous fishing industry and a flourishing Marina to provide a good variety of amenities.
