Country Villas for sale in Gaucin
This 9-bedroom country house enjoys a truly idyllic setting just outside the typically Andalucian ‘white washed’ mountain village of Gaucin, some 35 minutes drive inland from the beaches on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
Surrounded by Andalucian countryside at its very best and with frankly stunning elevated views of the Crestillina mountain range to the east and the Genal River Valley to the south, the house was built in 2000 to the highest of specifications by the current owners and features such elegant touches as parquet and Anticato marble flooring and Portuguese decorative tiles.
The property is accessed from the main coast-to-Gaucin road by an excellently maintained gravel country track that winds its way past some of the most beautiful countryside to be found in southern Spain.
A short private driveway leads up from the track to an ample parking area and a carport with space for 3 vehicles in front of the house.
Facing due south, the house is built across 3 storeys, with the main access on the ground floor, which features a reception hall which leads through to a grand living room with a fireplace.
This room provides direct access out to a wonderful and very spacious covered terrace with al fresco relax and dining areas and from there on out to the extensively lawned garden and pool area.
Back inside, a separate split-level dining room is located next to the living room, with its own access out to the terrace/garden/pool.
There’s also a fully-equipped modern kitchen with a pantry and access out to a broad east-facing terrace with a pergola and a BBQ that’s ideal for outdoor dining.
This ground floor level is completed by a library/TV/family room and a guest bedroom with its own fireplace, en suite bathroom and patio door access out to the garden and pool.
Upstairs on the 1st floor, there’s an impressive gallery area
which is currently used as an open-plan office space but could quite easily be used as an additional living room.
There’s also an elegant master bedroom with an eye-catchingly angled ceiling, a walk-in dressing room with a skylight and an en suite bathroom.
Thanks to 3 large sets of windows, this room enjoys both plenty of natural sunlight and quite extraordinary views south of the garden and the Andalucian countryside all around.
The 1st floor is completed by a study with smart built-in bookshelves.
The lower level of the house is home to staff/guest apartments, a cavernous storage room plus a large room currently used as an artist’s studio, a gymnasium and a wine cellar.
Outside, the rear of the property is blessed with an expansive lawn, a large swimming pool and BBQ area and an automatic irrigation system for the front garden.
At the front of the house, there’s a productive ecological vegetable and herb kitchen garden, plus a chicken coup which provides plenty of freshly laid eggs.
Other key features include a good Internet connection via satellite, solar panels and an ecological pellet heating system for the whole house.
