ENCHANTING COUNTRY VILLA - SPECTACULAR FAR-REACHING VIEWS TO MEDITERRANEAN & GIBRALTAR - HEATED SWIMMING POOL

An absolutely enchanting country property with a large heated swimming pool and incredible far-reaching views across rolling hills and valleys to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and the distant coastline of North Africa.

The villa was constructed in 1988 within an exclusive farmland estate of some 300 hectares shared by 12 properties, and only 10 mins drive from Gaucín with its variety of shops, bars and up-market restaurants.

1.5km drive along a well-maintained track (formerly an ancient smugglers trail!) from the main road, the villa perches on a hillside in an idyllic secluded location surrounded by a beautiful 2 acre Mediterranean garden on a total plot size of approx. 17 acres.

The property oozes classic Andalusian charm with an abundance of traditional rustic character. The attractive façade features French-style shutters and arched windows, whilst the substantial living accommodation offers stylish, comfortable living with a welcoming homely ambience.

Ground floor:

The entrance hall with staircase and guest WC, leads to a bright and spacious living room at the heart of the house. It has a high pitched ceiling with oak beams and feature open fireplace. The two sets of glazed French windows open onto a large covered terrace adjacent to the lawned garden with amazing views.

The large rustic country-style kitchen is bright & airy, providing ample workspace with a centre-island, a large dining area, a separate utility room. Two glazed French doors open onto the long covered terrace, a perfect place for al-fresco dining and entertaining.

There is a good-sized guest bedroom with lovely views, a large en-suite bathroom and a French door to the terrace. The second double guest bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a French door to the terrace, whilst the third double bedroom overlooks the courtyard. These two bedrooms share a separate bathroom.

Upper floor:

This comprises the attractive Master bedroom suite with fitted wardrobes, a pitched roof, beamed ceiling, and two glazed French doors opening onto a large private terrace with absolutely breathtakiing views. The spacious en-suite bathroom has marble surfaces and a walk-in shower. A separate small room provides useful storage space, or could be used as a study.

Exterior:
The villa occupies a substantial plot of approx. 17 acres, which is very private and tranquil. There is an extensive well-maintained lawn adjacent to the main terrace and the attractive gardens contain a variety of Mediterranean plants and trees, such as palms, cypress, cactus, carob, oak, olive, orange, lemon and fig. Most of the land contains well-established indigenous shrubs and trees, requiring low maintenance, and private woodland areas.

A charming Andalusian feature is the delightful flower-filled cobbled courtyard with an old brass bell above the entrance, and the ubiquitous lemon tree! The is a lovely peaceful haven for relaxing in sun or shade.

The huge covered terrace across the front of the house has ample space for al-fresco dining and comes with a built-in barbecue. Across the lawn, steps lead down to the large swimming pool (heated) with terraces and a covered shade area.
