Country House, Gaucin
Situated within easy walking distance ( 800m) from the village of Gaucin, this villa sits in a privileged and private position that offers truly stunning panoramic views to the village with its Moorish castle, to mountains and over valleys to the Straits of Gibraltar and the Rif mountains and coast of Morocco. There are very few places in the world where the view includes another continent..... The land is fully fenced , an automated gate allows access to the paved drive that winds through a mature olive grove up to the house where a wisteria-covered courtyard complete with fish-pond and fountain awaits your arrival. The front door opens from the courtyard onto the main floor of the house with a large living area, a modern fully-fitted kitchen with terrace, a study and two large bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom. There is also a cloakroom, a small gym/yoga studio and a separate laundry room on this level. From the main living area a staircase leads down to a second sitting room with french windows opening to the swimming pool, and two smaller bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The swimming pool is L-shaped and features a 14.5m x 3m30 lap lane with depth from 1.2m to 1.6m while the foot of the "L" is especially shallow (0.7m) so little children can safely play. From the terrace around the pool there is a door to a second kitchen that caters for pool-side eating or drinking, and a raised terrace with outdoor fireplace/barbecue and seating in the shade of an olive tree.
