Beautiful Andalusian Cortijo with super views in Gaucin, Malaga, Andalusia. This unique country property is set in the most amazing finca, with views over the Ronda mountains and the village el Colmenar on one side and the rolling hills on the other, with in the distance the Rock of Gibraltar. A mesmerizing location! The cortijo was built in 2005, and styled with Andalusian details. There are 2 courtyards, rustic marble floors, high beamed ceilings and many stone walls to border off areas in the garden. It meets the qualifications for the comfort of a luxury home, with ample living quarters and bedrooms, luxury bathrooms, central heating and air conditioning. Here you can enjoy Andalusian charm in luxury! And combine is with hobby farming if you wish. There is already a large vegetable garden, an olive grove and paddocks/grazing land for sheep or horses.
Easy access from the main road through a private driveway. Ample parking and 4 car garage. An nicely pebbled entrance patio with fountain leads to the main door. Spacious entrance hall, with guest toilet, continues into a large living with high beamed ceiling, chimney and build in woodburner. This part of the house has underfloor heating. Living open to a large covered terrace with views towards the pool, the rolling hills and in the distance Gibraltar. There is a separate dining room that easily seats 12 people, also opens to the covered terrace and is directly connected to the spacious and well equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a breakfast corner, a large pantry and the washing room with ample storage cupboards. This is also the ‘boots-room’ and has its own access through a small courtyard, directly from the outside.
Apart from the large living, there is a separate library or TV-room. Through the second courtyard with fountain, an arched corridor leads to the guest quarters, three ample bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, one with a private lounge. On the first floor you will find the master bedroom with a private terrace facing South and breathtaking views. It connects to an ample bathroom, a dressing area and a private office- mezzanine. Further on this floor another bedroom, with bathroom en suite and a private terrace on the East. All bedrooms are fitted with radiators and air conditioning.
The basement holds the large 4 car garage, a store room, the machine room and a gym with sauna and shower room. There is also a staff apartment, with its own entrance, containing a kitchen/living, a double bedroom and a bathroom.
It’s rare to find such a beautiful well finished quality Cortijo on an amazing plot of land. The outside is just as impressive as the inside. You can decide to just wander around the house and enjoy the covered terrace or the shade of the grand old cork oak which marks the garden. The good sized pool measures approximately 14×5m. There are sunbathing terraces and relax areas spreaded out in the garden or on the different courtyards. Yet the finca has so much more to offer! There are a few well defined paddocks, now in use for sheeps, but could be perfect for horses. There are no stables but it could be quite easy to put up some horse shelters and the garage store room would be an ideal tack room. There is also an olive grove that starts producing and provides the finca with its own extra virgen olive oil. Furthermore a well set up vegetable garden that can provide organic vegetables all year round. And the finca has a chicken pen as well.
