Country House with guest accommodation, Gaucin
ALL ONE LEVEL, FANTASTIC VIEWS AN UNUSUAL SINGLE STOREY COUNTRY PROPERTY WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS AND A GUEST COTTAGE It is pretty rare to find a single storey property in Gaucín and this one is rather unique! The property has a distinctive, attractive design and comprises an ultra-modern main house, plus a charming characterful guest cottage. The property is a few minutes drive from the village (approx. 5 mins walk) in a great location on the south side, with access via a short track from the road to the entrance gates. It is situated in an elevated position with stunning panoramic views across the River Genal valley to the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar & North Africa. The property occupies a plot of just over an acre, including a flat garden area to the rear containing a variety of fruit trees. A covered terrace extends along the front of the property with a large open parking area in front. From here there are incredible south-facing views of the surrounding countryside and to the distant coastline. Main house (3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 shower room) A large extension to the original cottage was constructed in 2009 and provides the well presented main living accommodation. The entrance opens into a spacious, light & airy living room with porcelain flooring, concealed lighting and air-conditioning. There is plenty of space for a dining area next to the ultra-modern, well equipped kitchen with a centre island and glazed sliding door to the garden. The master bedroom has a walk-in dressing area, air conditioning, and glazed sliding doors to the front terrace. Adjacent there is a large modern, fully tiled bathroom with a corner Jacuzzi bath and separate shower. There are two double guest bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, and a separate walk-in shower room. Guest cottage (1 bedroom, 1 shower room) The original Andalusian cottage, attached to the west side of the property, was renovated some years ago and is cosy and characterful. It comprises open-plan light & airy living accommodation with air conditioning and wonderful views to the Mediterranean coast. The living area has a beamed ceiling, ‘terracotta’ tiled flooring and an open fireplace. There is a dining area next to an attractive kitchenette with pretty blue tiling. The double bedroom, with a beamed ceiling, is a good size with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite modern shower room with storage space. There are lovely countryside views from the bedroom, which also has air conditioning. Exterior The attractive entrance gates (electrically operated) open into a large open courtyard area with ample parking space and a covered carport. This area faces south with incredible views. The extensive south-facing tiled terrace along the front of the house provides a great spot for al-fresco dining, with a built-in barbecue at one end, and lovely views. The exterior façade of the property to the rear, which overlooks the garden, requires some cosmetic ‘finishing off’ work. There is a pretty garden at the rear containing a variety of young fruit trees, including lemon, orange, fig & apple. The remainder of the acre plot is low-maintenance with a variety of established indigenous shrubs and trees, such as olive, almond and oak. There is potential for a roof terrace to be added (subject to building licence), which would have incredible panoramic views.
