Town House, Gaucin

Property Description

UNIQUE STYLE & CHARM WONDERFUL VILLAGE HOME WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS FROM TWO ROOFTOP TERRACES This deceptively spacious 3-storey village house is beautifully presented and stylishly renovated with lots of Andalusian character and artistic Moorish features. A combination of natural elements, attention to detail, and exceptional hand-crafted carpentry in chestnut & oak throughout the house, make this a truly unique and very interesting property. The house is located at the heart of the village a few minutes away from all amenities such as shops, bars and restaurants. From the roof terraces there are spectacular views to the south west across the myriad of village rooftops to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and into North Africa. To the north west, the village of Cortes and the Sierra del Libar mountain range are visible in the distance. The property was reformed in 2005/2006 and retains many of its original features, including the thick well-insulated walls, ensuring the house stays cool in summer and cosy and warm winter. Ground floor: The antique wooden entrance doors lead into a hallway featuring hand-crafted chestnut storage cupboards and a wood beamed ceiling. This extensive open-plan floor is split-level and comprises a spacious dining area with a wall of built-in cupboards in chestnut with glazed doors. There is a separate study to the right of the hallway, and stairs to the first floor. The rustic country-style kitchen, with exposed brick & whitewashed walls, is very spacious and well fitted with chestnut units, black granite work surfaces, a centre island, a range cooker and the original fireplace (now enclosed). The flooring is a combination of natural stone, terracotta and decorative hydraulic tiles. The kitchen leads to the patio with a shower and a covered utility area with a larder. From here there are steps to the first floor. First floor: An open staircase leads to the huge, comfortable living room with high wood-beamed ceiling and solid oak flooring. An antique wood-burning stove provides a lovely focal point in this beautiful split-level room with a TV/snug area and a separate well-fitted shower room. Antique wood doors lead into a charming double bedroom with French doors and a Juliet balcony overlooking the street below. A second double bedroom with French doors and Juliet balcony overlooks the central patio, which can be accessed from this floor. There is a good-sized bathroom with shower.

The attractive ‘minstrel’s’ gallery overlooking the living room below is a lovely feature.
