Villa, Gaucin

Property Description

FOR SALE IN GAUCIN VILLAGE LARGE DETACHED VILLA IN AN ELEVATED POSITION, GARDEN, POOL, GARAGE & WONDERFUL VIEWS This charming, stylish property is in one of the best locations in the village. From its prominent position the villa commands spectacular panoramic views to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of Morocco. It’s very rare to find a detached property in the village, and this villa has the bonus of a garage, plunge pool and a garden! The villa is situated in a quiet area below the Castle, adjacent to a small park and only a few minutes walk from all village amenities such as shops, restaurants and bars. Ground floor: A few steps lead up to the attractive main entrance that opens directly into the spacious open-plan ground floor. The light & airy living room has a high ceiling and an open fireplace at one end. Along the south side of the room there are two glazed French doors with stunning views across the pretty patchwork of village rooftops and river valley to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and North Africa. A door in the corner of the living room leads to a small terrace and stairs down to the patio garden & pool area. The spacious fully-fitted kitchen, with a dining area, is also very light with windows on two sides. The high quality kitchen units and centre island are complimented by stylish ‘Silestone’ black marble-effect worktops. From the kitchen there is internal access to the good-sized garage with a utility area. There is also a guest cloakroom on this floor. Upper floor: From the living room there is an open staircase leading to the upper floor comprising the Master bedroom, two double guest bedrooms, a shower room and a separate bathroom. The colourful Master bedroom has high-quality built-in wardrobes and glazed French doors leading to a fabulous covered terrace with stunning panoramic views across the countryside to the Mediterranean coastline. This is a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast! To the east there are super views of the Castle (often illuminated at night ) and to the west El Hacho mountain dominates the skyline. One guest bedroom, with a view of the Castle, is rather unusual with a ‘boudoir’ style raised double bed and a separate dressing area with built-in wardrobes. The second double guest bedroom has French doors with a small balcony overlooking the patio garden & pool. It has also south-facing views across the river valley to the Mediterranean. The luxury modern bathroom has porcelain tiled walls and a raised ‘Jacuzzi’ bath and windows on two sides overlooking the fabulous views. There is also a separate fully-tiled shower-room. Lower level: Below the main house, at garden level, there is a large open area ('sotano') which could be reformed to create further living accommodation, such as an extra bedroom, garden room, summer kitchen, or children's playroom etc. (subject to building licence). The 'sotano' currently provides a pretty mosaic-tiled ‘cool’ room, a perfect spot for relaxing out of the midday sun or enjoying a barbecue, and an adjacent covered storage area. Exterior: There is an ‘al fresco’ dining area within the garden. Although quite small, the south-facing garden contains a variety of exotic trees & shrubs, including a lemon tree, jacaranda, palm, nispero, bamboo, pampas grass etc. The garden is watered by a natural underground spring, even in summer months! There is also a beautiful Japanese Melia tree adjacent to the main entrance, often admired by passers-by! The good-sized plunge pool at the end of the garden is approx. 5m x 4m x 2m deep and is very private. There is also an outside shower.
