Property Description

CUTE & CHARMING COTTAGE This charming country cottage offers the perfect ‘far from the madding crowd’ hideaway in an idyllic, peaceful location surrounded by nature. The property is situated on an exclusive private estate only 20 mins drive from Gaucin, 15 mins from Jimena de La Frontera, 30 mins from the famous golf courses & polo club at Sotogrande, and 50 mins from Gibraltar airport. There are several large villas on the estate which is accessed by a private, gated track from the main Ronda-Algeciras road. The cottage is tucked away in a tranquil, elevated position with wonderful panoramic south-facing views across the countryside to the Mediterranean coastline and Gibraltar. The finca comprises 7 acres of flat fertile land with pretty pathways through the woodland and many open areas that are ideal for picnics, or suitable for grazing. The cottage is surrounded by lots of indigenous plants and trees, including olive, carob and almond. Adjacent to the finca there is a small ‘lake’ which is the main water source for the estate and a haven for wildlife such as deer, fox, otter, mongoose, kingfisher & heron. Water is available year-round and a pumping system supplies the natural water (non potable) to each of the properties on the estate. The Cottage: The single-storey cottage has a simple open-plan layout and was constructed in 1990 from high quality Danish pine with a traditional tiled roof. It remains in very good condition and has been home to its English lady owner for several years. The comfortable living accommodation comprises a spacious light & airy living room with a south-facing bay window and sliding doors leading to the covered terrace.

The large master bedroom, with built-in wardrobes, also faces south with a bay window overlooking the garden and a glazed door out to the terrace. The double guest bedroom also has built-in wardrobes. There is a good-sized separate bathroom. Double glazing keeps the cottage warm in winter and cool in summer. The wood-beamed ceilings add character and there are ceramic floor tiles throughout.
