Property Description

3 RUSTIC COTTAGES, POOL, VIEWS RARE OPPORTUNITY - IDYLLIC COUNTRY FINCA CLOSE TO GAUCIN - 3 RUSTIC COTTAGES, GREAT VIEWS & A SWIMMING POOL This is a rare opportunity to acquire an idyllic countryside finca a few minutes drive from Gaucín with THREE charming rustic cottages and a swimming pool - excellent value + good rental income. This picturesque south-facing hillside finca comprises 7 acres and has spectacular sweeping views across the surrounding countryside down to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and into North Africa. The cottages are 1.5 km west of the village and accessed along a short downhill track from the main road. The finca is low maintenance and contains a variety of mature trees such as palm, olive, almond, fig, eucalyptus, oak, cypress and carob, and lots of indigenous shrubs. STONE COTTAGE (3 bed/2 bath - 92 m²) Designed by its artist owner, this enchanting cottage was constructed in 1993 to a high standard and epitomises the rustic characterful style of Andalusia. The use of traditional building materials such as stone, oak, pine and chestnut, combined with the skill of local artisans, has resulted in a truly unique house with a quirky, colourful interior. With many interesting features and a lovely ambience, the house is in total harmony with its tranquil surroundings, and has wonderful views to the distant Mediterranean. Ground floor: The spacious open plan living area has a wood-beamed ceiling, ceramic floor tiles, wood-burning stove, built-in seating area and lovely arched windows (double glazed) facing south. There is a dining area, a large well fitted kitchen and bathroom. From this level there is access to a beautiful covered terrace with fantastic views - an ideal spot for ‘al-fresco’ dining. There is also a paved patio area for sunbathing. Upper floor: An unusual open staircase from the living room leads to two double bedrooms, one on each side of the house, each with a quirky window overlooking the living area & another small window overlooking the countryside. Annexe: Below the main house & terrace, down a few steps, there is a more recently built separate annexe comprising a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Exterior: The large covered terrace & patio areas face south with stunning views of the landscape, and there is also a BBQ area. A short path leads to the beautiful secluded swimming pool (8m x 3m) with a ‘Moorish’ style shade area with built-in seating – a lovely romantic spot. ARTIST’S COTTAGE (2 bed/1 bath - 67m²) In 2006 the original farmhouse was reconstructed to form a home for its current owner. The single storey dwelling is simple, rustic and comfortable with a homely ambience and takes full advantage of spectacular panoramic views to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Morocco. It comprises a spacious light & airy open plan living/dining room with a wood-burning stove and large double glazed windows and a kitchen area with wood beamed ceiling. There are glazed French doors onto a large covered veranda overlooking the wonderful views with a pretty patio at one end, perfect for a BBQ and al-fresco dining. The generous master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and French doors onto a veranda with wonderful south-facing views. There is also a small double bedroom (currently used as an art studio) and a walk-in shower room. CASITA (1 bed/1bath – 40m²) A few minutes walk away near the swimming pool there is a small self-contained ‘casita’. It is simple & rustic and would be a great hideaway for teenagers! It comprises an open-plan living area with kitchenette, a built-in raised bed, and a bathroom. FEATURES/FACILITIES: - Mains electricity - Mains water & a well - 3 Septic tanks - Broadband internet/TV - Part double glazed - Wood-burning stoves - Terraces (open & shaded) - Patios - Stunning views - Swimming pool (8m x 3m x 1.2m) - Very private - Parking space - 5 mins drive from Gaucín - Registered for rentals - Good rental income (Stone Cottage + Casita)
