Wonderful country property with stunning sea views and separate guest house in Gaucin, Malaga, Andalusia. This country house has been renovated with love and care and turned it into a very comfortable home. The house is located very private, in the middle of nature yet at a close distance of the village Gaucin. 3 minutes by car or 15 minutes on foot. And the views are to die for!
Double gates open on to the ample drive, with enough parking for 3-4 cars. There are a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom main house and a separate 1 bedroom guest cottage. Both have been renovated with high-quality fixtures and fittings, polished concrete floors, windows with double-glazing and where possible, the original farmhouse details are kept.
The main house entrance door opens into the dining room with a built-in bench. The dining is directly connected to a half-open stunning modern kitchen with cooking island, American fridge, Indian-polished granite worktop, all with top quality finishings, modern, but with a rustic touch. From here a hallway leads to the living quarters. The cosy living room with wood burner and built-in shelves and desk has stunning views towards Gaucin’s castle. Adjacent to this, a very light sitting room with beamed ceilings and double-glazed doors opening onto the terraced dining area, ideal for wining and dining al-fresco, enjoying the tranquillity and stunning natural setting this property has to offer! From the hallway, polished concrete stairs lead to the first floor. The floor to ceiling picture window is an eye catcher here, harmonious and elegant, accentuating the views and overlooking a large cork oak tree. The staircase has a beautiful, stained glass feature, which fills the stairs with colour! These lead to the main, double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. This room has many windows, but the most special are two small windows, preserved from the original farmhouse. It also has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The second double bedroom with bathroom is to be found on the ground floor, in the other wing, connected to the dining room. It also has fitted wardrobes, and en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a bath.
The enticing pool area is set away from the property, and is a true delight! With ample sunbathing areas and a barbecue. The pool with jet-stream is approximately 7m x 4m, and 1.2m deep; looking out over the ornamental landscape as far as the eye can see, the Sierra Crestellina mountains, valley, and the Mediterranean coastline. Something quite spectacular!
The guest cottage is private and a bit away from the main house, with an individual track and parking area. It has been named “La Casita Tranquila” the tranquil cottage, and it really does live up to its name! The main door opens to an open-plan kitchen and living room. The sitting area has a wood-burning stove, and access through a double-glazed sliding door to the romantic L-shaped terrace. Also, a bathroom with shower and a storage area. A beautiful, wooden staircase leads to the mezzanine-style bedroom with beamed ceiling and an attractive feature stained-glass window. This cottage follows the same design as the main house, with airy, light spaces and concrete floors. At the entrance, there is a small utility and store room to the side.
