Country Estates for sale in Gaucin
This large, extremely private and elegant country estate is located in the midst of some of the most beautiful countryside to be found anywhere in southern Spain.
Just 7kms outside the picturesque mountain village of Gaucín and 45 mins by car inland from the sandy beaches, airports and other amenities of the coast, the property is sold with 24 acres of fully-fenced in land populated by mature oak, carob and olives trees and is absolutely ideal for those seeking an idyllic, blissfully private retreat blessed with a great deal of peace and tranquillity.
With spectacular views south across the surrounding landscape to the Mediterranean coastline, the estate is accessed via a winding country track, which leads past a gatekeeper’s cottage into the estate itself.
Various low-lying buildings built up the hillside make up the property.
The main house is accessed via a set of antique, double doors which open on to a grand L-shaped split-level entrance hall.
The interior living spaces are immaculately decorated in cream, taupe and gold tones with high-beamed ceilings, rustic terracotta tiled floors and modern art adorning the walls.
The hallway leads through to an impressive living room with a double height beamed ceiling, a log burning fire and access out to a large dining terrace.
A few steps lead from the main seating area in the living room to an elevated dining area and from there in to a rustic-style fully-fitted kitchen equipped with modern appliances, including a La Canche range.
There’s also a separate larder and a large utility area just off the kitchen containing the laundry room, an ironing room, a boot room, 2 wine stores, plus a small office and a storage area.
Just off the dining area is a Library/TV room.
All 4 bedrooms in the property come with en suite bathrooms and access to outside balconies or terraces.
The master bedroom, meanwhile, features a beamed apex ceiling, a fireplace and a dedicated dressing room with antique courtyard doors concealing the fitted wardrobe space.
It also has an en-suite bathroom with a sizeable shower, twin sinks and a jacuzzi bath.
One of the most impressive of all the property’s features, however, is its indoor Spa, which consists of a heated swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a sauna and a shower.
Joined to the main house is a gorgeous self contained staff/guest cottage, which is built and decorated to the same impeccably high standard as the main house.
This area of the property has an open plan layout with a sitting area, a kitchen, plus a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom featuring a Morroccan style bath with a shower and his n’ her sinks, toilet and bidet.
There’s also a TV, wi-fi connection, a log burner, a breakfast bar, double sinks, a fridge/freezer, a micro wave, an oven, a gas hob, a washer/dryer and a lot of charm.
A delightful, walled-in patio area creates an ideal fresco dining area for the warmer months.
Outside, there’s a grand dining terrace with a fabulous glass pyramid ceiling, plus a swimming pool built around a room created especially as a Mirador – a room in which to enjoy the spectacular views.
The pool also features a poolside bar with a log burner.
The estate also has a 3-car garage with a large parking area for up to 10+ vehicles.
This estate is a truly unique property combining the finest elements of rustic Spain with the latest home comforts.
Additionaly Finca de Palmero has an extra feature, the finca has an established holiday rental business that has a 3% return from the 7 months we book rental holidays.
This leaves plenty of opportunity to increase this rental income from the remaining 5 months of the year with our indoor spa and heated swimming pool ( 13 metres x 3 metres ) – a major source of attracting bookings for the winter months – whatever the weather, the clients can enjoy a refreshing swim, a relaxing jacuzzi or a soothing sauna.
