ENCHANTING COUNTRY HOUSE - GORGEOUS SWIMMING POOL, GUEST COTTAGE AND SEA VIEWS

This beautifully renovated old farmhouse is absolutely enchanting, with an abundance of character and charm. It is tucked away in a private, tranquil location just below the village of Gaucίn in an area of outstanding natural beauty – a real hidden gem! There is also a quaint separate guest house in the woodland a short walk from the main house.

There are very special views across the lush valley to an ancient Moorish castle (often illuminated at night), and beyond to the majestic Sierra de Crestallina mountains, the Mediterranean Sea and Rif mountains of Morocco. In particular, views from the swimming pool and terraces are absolutely stunning.

This delightful property is in a very desirable location just 3 mins drive, or 15 mins walk, along a rural track to the edge of the village, making it convenient for shops, bars and a variety of top quality restaurants in Gaucίn.

The property was stylishly renovated in 2013 using high quality fixtures and fittings, but retains its Moorish ambience and some original features from the old farmhouse.

The romantic guest cottage (‘Casita Tranquila’) is located amongst the ancient cork oak trees a short walk from the main house along a grassy track. It provides simple, rustic and charming accommodation for guests.

MAIN HOUSE (157 m2 - 2 BED/2 BATH)

Ground floor:
The main entrance opens into an attractive dining area with built-in seating, adjacent to the spacious very modern kitchen with high quality fixtures & fittings. The feature centre island has an Indian polished granite worktop, whilst other work surfaces are of polished marble. There is lots of storage space and there are views to the Moorish castle.

A part-glazed door opens into the spacious, light and airy Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, fitted wardrobes and ceiling fan. The bathroom has a bath, walk-in shower, heated towel rail and polished concrete floors and surfaces. This bathroom can also be accessed from the dining area for use by guests.

In the hallway, a spectacular floor-to-ceiling window takes full advantage of stunning views across the patio terrace to the Crestallina mountains and Mediterranean coastline beyond – a real ‘wow’ factor. Beside the attractive open staircase, there is a lovely stained-glass window preserved from the original farmhouse.

The cosy, comfortable sitting room (TV/snug) with three windows, has an enclosed wood-burning stove, built-in shelving, and views across the valley to the Moorish castle.

The light and airy garden room has a chestnut beamed ceiling, radiator, and three small windows creating a lovely cosy ambience. The double-glazed sliding doors across one end open onto the large paved terrace, a fabulous spot for al-fresco dining or entertaining with wonderful views and shade provided by an ancient cork oak tree.

Upper floor:
This comprises a generous double guest bedroom with fitted wardrobes, ceiling fan, and a modern, attractive en-suite shower room with heated towel rail. It is light and airy with several windows, including 2 tiny original windows preserved from the old farmhouse.

LA CASITA TRANQUILA (84 m2 - 1 BED/1 BATH)

The charming guest cottage is located in woodland 75m along a grassy track from the main house and has space for parking. The cottage is very private, peaceful and perfect for guests (or for summer rentals) and provides simple, quirky self-contained living accommodation in a lovely romantic setting.

The small gated courtyard has a built-in seat and leads to an L-shaped dining terrace with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. There is a small utility room & store to the side of the courtyard.

The open-plan ground floor is light, airy and attractively presented with a painted concrete floor and sliding double-glazed doors opening onto the terrace. There is a sitting area with a wood-burning stove, a small fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, a shower-room with heated towel rail, and a storage area. An open wooden staircase leads to the mezzanine-style open-plan double bedroom with chestnut beamed ceiling and an old stained-glass window.

EXTERIOR:

The property is situated within an ancient chestnut grove of some 10 acres, offering privacy & tranquillity. The land comprises mainly low maintenance woodland with a variety of mature trees and shrubs, including chestnut, cork oak, pine, carob, olive and wild strawberry, providing a lovely natural habitat for birds and wildlife. Around the immediate vicinity of the house there are flowerbeds and areas of garden with wild flowers.

A short drive from the gated entrance, the main house has ample parking space for 3-4 cars. To the side of the house there is a large storage area with built-in cupboards for heating equipment, tools, logs etc.

A short walk from the house down a few steps brings you to the irresistible 7m x 5m swimming pool (with jet-stream) with adjacent sunbathing terraces and BBQ area.
