EXCEPTIONAL COUNTRY HOUSE

MAGNIFICENT COUNTRY HOUSE ON A PRIVATE ESTATE WITH A GORGEOUS INFINITY POOL

This magnificent country property is within a privately owned country estate just 25 minutes inland from the Western Costa del Sol. There are only two other properties within this family owned estate, so it is a very rare opportunity to purchase a property in this privileged location.

The estate is located midway between the villages of Gaucín and Casares and it’s unique position, protected by spectacular mountain ranges, means it usually enjoys a micro-climate of year-round warm weather. The villa was constructed by the family some 15 years ago and complies with all legal requirements. This spectacular property has many unique features, which showcase the wonderful craftsmanship, style and materials typical of 18th century Andalusian country Cortijos.

The villa has four wings forming a cross with an octagonal tower at its core, permitting 360 degree views of the mountains and protected Genal River valley. Constructed with painstaking care, the villa’s floors are in tropical timbers, baked-clay tiles and river pebbles; its walls are lime-washed; reclaimed Moorish tiles form the roof; and huge antique wooden doors have been rescued and renovated from the ruins of old estates. The house exudes warmth, comfort and charm and is clearly a much loved family home.

Entering the house through the traditionally designed enclosed Andalusian patio into a glorious entrance hall with a small guest WC off to the left. A magnificent hand-painted ‘t’rompe l'oeil’ ceiling is the first thing to catch one’s eye! There is large sitting room complete with hand-crafted stone fireplace and wood beamed ceiling, a similarly traditional dining room, and a wonderful rustic-style farmhouse breakfast kitchen with double marble sinks and a ‘La Cancha’ range oven with 6 gas burners. Off the kitchen is a large and very practical utility/laundry room with a large American style fridge freezer, 2 large drinks fridges, washer and dryer, and ample storage cupboards. There is a rear door access to the exterior of the house from this room. A beautifully proportioned guest bedroom with an elegant, spacious en-suite bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

Even the staircase to the first floor is a little masterpiece. Each riser has been inlaid with some exquisite hand-painted Andalusian tiles. The landing repeats the unique octagonal design feature of the ground floor, but at this level features a stunning vaulted ceiling.

The Master bedroom suite occupies one wing of the upper floor with spectacular panoramic views, a hand-crafted four poster iron double bed and a fabulous feature open fireplace. The large dressing room with built-in wardrobes, leads to a beautifully tiled luxury bathroom, which also has a walk-in shower. There are two further double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom on this floor.

Further guest accommodation is accessed from the internal patio. The large self-contained guest suite, with its own entrance, comprises a super size bedroom with open fireplace and a large en-suite bathroom. There is also a staff bedroom with bathroom with private entrance from the patio.

Each room in the house has been painstakingly designed and furnished to an extremely high standard. There is underfloor heating throughout the house. All windows are high quality double glazed and have retractable mosquito net frames, allowing windows to be left open on balmy summer nights. Every bedroom has a ‘Casablanca’ style ceiling fan. Surrounding the south side of the house are delightful, large covered terraces furnished for lounging and dining and overlooking the extensive gardens of lawns and trees. A free-form 12m x 6m ‘infinity’ pool is set a little further down the garden with a paved terrace and poolside gazebo bar equipped with a fridge, sink and preparation area.
There is also a W.C.

Within the 32,730m2 (8 acres) of fenced grounds there is a cultivated vegetable garden, small orchard, some picturesque nature trails. There is also a large hay barn, with chicken house to the rear, and a covered paddock area complete with water and power, purpose-built to keep up to 5 horses.
Access to the property is via a well maintained track 5 mins drive from the main road and only 15 mins drive from Gaucín. The nearest beach and golf courses on the Costa del Sol are 35 mins away and the International Polo Club at Sotogrande 40 mins. Málaga airport is approx. 80 minutes drive; Gibraltar airport is approx. 50 mins drive.
