Probably the most exclusive property available on the island of La Palma.
An impressive villa set in 11,000 sq m of private land, commanding panoramic views of the ocean, mountains & valley. Borders a national park area with beautiful walks & scenery.
If you are looking for the most exclusive and impressive property available on the island of La Palma - possibly in the whole of the Canaries - you’ll find it in Quinta Valencia.
This impressive villa is set in around 11,000 square metres of private land, at an altitude of about 840 metres above sea level. This quiet situation is in probably the most desirable position on La Palma, with commanding, dramatic panoramic views of the ocean, mountains and valley. It is on the border of a national park area with beautiful walks and scenery.
But seclusion and privacy doesn’t mean isolation. The villa is conveniently located just 10 minutes or less drive away from the picturesque and historical town of El Paso. The beaches, airport and capital city of Santa Cruz are less than half an hour away.
Villa Valencia itself is a luxurious 500 square metre, marble floored, five bedroom, three bathroom villa. Built in a traditional Canarian Manor House style, this is surely the largest and most impressive house available on La Palma.
The main reception room has vaulted wooden ceiling with large fireplace. There is a large kitchen, dining room and library. The lower ground floor includes a study, bar and games room with billiard table, Finnish sauna, plunge pool and toilet. The property has full central heating and there is a c. 8 x 8 metre heated swimming pool.
The house was built in 1986, and since then planning restrictions have been tightened. That means today there is no chance of any other building in the locality (apart from further development on your land if you wish), which secures both your privacy and the amazing view.
The property is entered via electrically operated gates along a sweeping, palm tree lined driveway and the whole estate is walled and fenced. The total built area (including swimming pool area, barbecue terrace and other terraces) totals c800 m². Numerous gardens, both natural and themed, have been created around the house, providing crops of fresh avocados, oranges, olives, peaches, pomegranate, plums, guavas, figs and many more fruits in season. Recently the rest of the estate has been replanted as an organically cultivated avocado orchard.
This is a rare opportunity to buy a property of this size and scope. For sale is the c 500 sq metre manor house, plus a separate c60 sq metre self-contained guest / staff house, in c 11,000 sq metres of private land in a position which is possibly the best on the island. Apart from the Villas' use as a private residence, the estate that comes with it has potential for tourism development, such as a boutique eco resort to tap in to the popularity of La Palma with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. Or the house would make an excellent base for a Recording Studio, a Wellness Retreat or Health Spa, or a boutique Bed & Breakfast destination.
