Happy Tuesday, Escapists! A modest facade opens into vast hidden paradise in the picturesque castle town of Xátiva, Valencia, Spain!
The interior design of this property is impeccable! I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I discovered it a few days ago, so I decided I must share. This property would be an ideal bed and breakfast located in one of the most beautiful areas of Spain!
Tucked away in the heart of the famous city of Xativa is a hidden treasure, disguised from the outside, with its petite façade as a rather simple looking “casa de pueblo” but…. upon opening the door unto the reception one is instantly transported to another world somewhere betwixt Ibiza and NYC. With further exploration one discovers a spectacular home with exquisite, detailed craft work and ornamentation from over 100 years ago seamlessly blended with modern decor and conveniences.
This surprisingly large house boats, 1 library, 2 kitchens, 3 full baths, 3 salons and 5 large bedrooms all positioned with access or views onto a large, light filled and enchanting interior patio bursting with a refined jungle of broad green leaved plants and delicate flowers. A covered open-air dining area looks onto the patio as do the formal dining space and the first of the two kitchens, with completely modern appliances in a sleek minimalist style. Also downstairs we have a delightful den and a full bathroom.
On the first floor we first reach the second of the 3 salons, a large space decorated in a contemporary design, with a charming writing desk overlooking the street below and substantial library which could also be used for a bedroom. Next on to the Master bedroom suite with built in closets, a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bath room with shower, as well as a solarium/mini-gym. A traditional style kitchen with generous central dining area, a pantry and finally a balcony looking on to the patio below complete the scene.
On the 2nd floor, we reach 3 double bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, and a large salon with chimney. An antique wooden spiral staircase leads to the rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the mountain top with its majestic Castle and fortified ramparts.
