The very attractive house is situated in the pretty corner of the picturesque ‘Pueblo Blanco’ of El Colmenar (Estacíon Gaucín).  El Colmenar nestles in a valley 15 mins drive from the popular village of Gaucín, and is flanked by the majestic ‘Los Alcornocales Parque Natural’ and the Guadiaro River.  The river is in a stunning natural environment and offers wild water swimming, canyoning, canoeing, etc., and there are numerous hiking trails in the area with breathtaking scenery.

The village is also known as Estación Gaucín, due to having a station on the Algeciras-Ronda railway line with connections to several major towns & cities. Village amenities include grocery shops, bakery, pharmacy, health centre, school, bars & restaurants.  It is 1hr drive from Gibraltar & Sotogrande, 1hr from the Costa del Sol (Marbella, Estepona), and with nearest airports at Malaga & Gibraltar.


The interior of the property includes a wealth of authentic features. These include an ancient stone well, original ceramic tiling & wood beamed ceilings. Even the old stone wash basin has been retained, adding real charm & character to the already lovely internal patio.

The gorgeous internal patio is at the heart of this characterful property - a large enclosed walled area that to connects the two elements of the house. It is partially covered with the remainder is mostly open the skies, allowing sunshine in throughout the year. There is ample space for sunbeds, garden furniture, and even room for a Jacuzzi hot-tub! There is also a built-in wood store, stone wash basin, and a wooden access door opening directly onto the street – very useful for deliveries etc.

Main house:

Entry from the street leads into a large open plan room, comprising a very charming farmhouse/cottage style kitchen with wood fronted cupboards and stainless-steel appliances (electric oven, 4 ring gas hob, large fridge/freezer & washing machine). The kitchen is divided from the living room by a semi-island.

The living room is a lovely, spacious yet cosy room with a wood burning stove. An eye-catching feature are the gorgeous ceramic floor tiles dating from the 1940’s - a rare find these days! Full length double glazed doors open into the patio, which is partly covered with a solid roof, making it ideal for indoor/outdoor dining that an be used year round.

The first floor of the main house comprises the Master bedroom (7.5m x 4.5m) and ensuite bathroom. The lovely bedroom is spacious, light & airy and overlooks the pretty street below.

Guest suite:

The current owners’ have converted the original outbuildings into an attractive guest suite. A really special feature is to be found in the entrance hall – the original stone-built water well - which even today has a good supply of water! This is not currently used, but certainly could be if needed! On the ground floor there is a shower room, and a circular staircase leads up to a spacious room currently used as an office, but was originally designed as the guest bedroom. Off the bedroom there is a small galley service kitchen, equipped with a fridge, sink and work surface. From here there is access to a very pretty terrace with panoramic views towards Los Alcornocales Natural Park.

Just outside the property there are several parking spaces – although not private, they are generally only used by the owners.

This is an exceptional home of considerable charm, is in pristine condition and ready to move into!
