Silva Navis (Ship of the Forest) is probably the most unique property in Spain… It is built in the style of a 1960’s cruise liner, but is situated 500m above sea level in the La Llacuna plateau, near Villalonga, Valencia. The plateau, part of a National park, is a peaceful location and usually 4 degrees cooler than the coast. The property is set in 4,800sqm of garden, pine forest, fruit trees and a collection of unusual trees and shrubs.
The house/ship has 3 levels with a total area of 230sqm living space, and is surrounded by a moat, with one section having koi and goldfish. The house/ship has huge potential and flexibility for a variety of hospitality set-ups:
An events venue for weddings, boat parties, and special occasions.
Bed and breakfast.
Restaurant, cafe or afternoon teas.
Or, just a unique family home.
It is easily adaptable for each use.
The fore and aft decks make ideal terraces and there is also a large dining room for the cooler months.
There is a new solar electric system with 12 panels, located on the top deck, and 24 batteries and automatic generator (15HP, 6KW) in separate buildings. A water pump is installed to ensure constant pressure throughout the building and gardens. The house has internal security shutters on the ground floor, and roller shutters on the first floor, for all windows and doors, and so is secure if left for any length of time.
Parking for 8 cars.
Internet and telephone.
