The priciest piece of property in Alicante, the “Tower King Jaume 1,” a villa 5 kilometers from the town has just been placed on the market.
Boasting only two bedroom suites the price came as a bit of a surprise to us – €10,500,000 That is correct, over ten million euros for a two-bedroom villa.
Despite the small number of bedrooms, the villa is huge â€“ over 1,100 square meters built and a 4,200 plot. Also included is a heated pool, private library, private pub, gymnasium and an aviary, along with a guest house, staff quarters and spectacular gardens.
The website advertising the property entertainingly describes the villa as a “peculiar construction,” and the family that built it were of a “high spending power,”which more or less describes the villa accurately. It is certainly an interesting piece of property, despite the large price tag.
As a comparison, we thought it might be interesting to compare this property to other typical properties in the region.
So what does 10.5 million get you ?
