Walls with history and 300 tiles by Salvador Dalí

The history of this house is as unique as its walls, built more than 100 years ago. The house, known as La Campanera and located in the Alicante town of Dénia, was acquired by the famous Spanish tenor Antonio Cortis in 1928, who later expanded it, turning it into a centre for numerous musical evenings and artistic and cultural gatherings. Its current owners have been restoring the house for a decade, preserving its original charm and adapting it to contemporary needs (there are solar panels, underfloor heating, a well…). In addition, they have recovered 300 tiles signed and designed by the painter Salvador Dalí. On one side, there is the main house, which includes three bedrooms, a living room and dining room, a greenhouse, a kitchen and a wine cellar. Then there is the summer house, which houses an entertainment space with a kitchen, dining room and bathroom. The guest house includes two independent apartments and the exterior is occupied by an orchard, gardens and a swimming pool. The property, marketed by Lucas Fox and with views of the Montgó mountain, is within walking distance of the town centre and the beaches of Dénia.Location: Dénia (Alicante)Area: Plot of 5,932 square metres and 956 builtCondition: GoodPrice: 5.99 million eurosTelephone: 965 79 33 63
