ENCHANTING  COUNTRY HOUSE - BEAUTIFUL SETTING WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS

An absolutely charming country house and swimming pool in an idyllic, tranquil location surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, pastureland and forest (17 acres). This large property is very secluded and nestles on a hillside and boasts far-reaching views across open countryside to the distant Mediterranean coastline and tip of Gibraltar!

The property is located on the exclusive private estate of La Almuña ~ 10 mins drive from Gaucín, 15 mins from Jimena de la Frontera, 40 mins from Sotogrande, and 50 mins from Ronda. There are 3 airports within easy driving distance at Gibraltar (45 mins), Malaga (90 mins) and Jerez (90 mins).

Constructed in the early 1990’s, the two-storey house is accessed via a private driveway leading to a gated cobbled courtyard with a carport and parking for several vehicles.  The house has an abundance of classical Andalusian charm and character with spacious light & airy living accommodation, but would benefit from some updating.

A charming haven of tranquillity in a perfect location to explore
the many delights of Andalucía and beyond!

Ground floor:

The main entrance opens into a spacious, comfortable living room with a homely rustic ambience, enhanced by a traditional open fireplace. Two glazed French doors open onto an extensive covered terrace along the south side of the house, overlooking the lawned garden and with spectacular far-reaching views from three sitting areas.  An attractive archway from the living room leads into the large light & airy, country style kitchen with a separate dining area. A glazed door from the kitchen also opens onto to the covered terrace.

Just off the living room, there is a storage area and a small hallway leading to a generous guest bedroom with fitted wardrobes, ceiling fan, and French doors opening onto a small lawned area with sunbeds.  There is a further guest bedroom with a French door leading into the cobbled courtyard, also with fitted wardrobes, ceiling fan. Alongside the bedrooms, there is a pretty bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, and marble flooring.

Upper floor:

An attractive open staircase from the living room leads up to the huge Master bedroom suite with fitted wardrobes. There are two French doors, one opening onto a large south-facing terrace with stunning views across the garden & pool area to the distant Mediterranean, where the tip of Gibraltar and mountains of Morocco can be seen on a clear day! The other French door opens onto a small patio at the side of the house.  The generous ensuite is well presented with a bath, walk-in shower, decorative tiling and marble flooring.

Annex:

From the courtyard, steps lead down to the lower level of the house. This comprises an ensuite guest bedroom, adjacent to the west-facing terrace that overlooks the garden and pool area.  There is also a laundry/utility room.

Exterior:

The charming south-facing terrace is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the incredible views and tranquillity of the gardens. The west-facing terrace is part shaded with lovely views and a BBQ area, making this an ideal spot for alfresco dining and entertaining.

A short path through the garden meanders down to the unusual ‘freestyle’ 12m swimming pool (heated by heat pump).  The pool is surrounded by sunbathing terraces with a shade area, providing a superb leisure area with spectacular sweeping views across the countryside.

The beautifully maintained mature gardens (2 acres) are fully fenced and comprise tiered lawned areas, flower beds, many exotic Mediterranean plants and indigenous trees, as well as palms, cypress, cactus, carob, oak, olive and a variety of fruit trees.  The remainder of the plot is farmland (14 acres) suitable for grazing horses, sheep etc.

‘La Almuña’

This exclusive country estate is privately owned and comprises some 300 acres of farmland and forest, which is shared by twelve properties.  Each property comprises a large private garden surrounded by an area of farmland, ensuring total privacy. This unique concept offers owners the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of owning a luxury Andalusian country house, together with an adjacent area of farmland without the burden of maintaining the land and access road.  The farm estate is managed by the ‘community’ of La Almuña, with each owner making an annual contribution to the running costs.

A private tennis court is available for use by owners and their guests, and there is a working farm with a kitchen garden where organic produce is freely available to owners year-round! The large areas of community grazing land are suitable for sheep and horses, with many riding trails around the area.
