Situated on the edge of the National Park, not far from the mountain village of Gaucin. Set in its own 140.000m2 of beautiful Andalucian countryside, this ‘finca-style’ country home is the essence of sophisticated country living.
You arrive at the estate through large metal gates along a driveway of abundant greenery and olive groves. Parking at the entrance in a large gravel carport with ample parking space.
The house is accessed either via its large Andalucian courtyard - Which in itself is a wonderful resting place with a choice of seating areas, geraniums, Jazmin, running water, shade, sun, lemon trees with their fantastic lemon fragrance...The walls painted in traditional warm ochre, the floor laid in a herringbone brick pattern, water ponds and a broad covered terrace area. This is a wonderful introduction to what lies within – It is also a perfect place to enjoy breakfast and the morning sun.
Or, you can enter via a more direct entranceway which leads into a reception hall with doors through to the living room and to the master bedroom.
The English/Spanish owners build the family holiday home of their dreams - And a dream home it is! - The interior defined by a mixture of modern and traditional elements and influences. Beautiful original art pieces and collectors’ items make this as unique a place as you will find.
All on one floor, a magnificent living room with a double-height vaulted wooden ceiling is the centre of the house. Beautifully furnished and decorated with artefact and works of art collected from all over the world, this a remarkably colourful, inviting place to gather on cooler evenings around the fire.
Here ther is also a guest WC.
Along the front of the rooms, French windows open onto a terrace running the length of the house...And what a terrace – it is large enough to entertain any family gathering one could fancy. A very generous sized, square granite table, wicker sofas with welcoming white cushions, coffee tables, lanterns, potted flowers. Essentially everything here is very generous in size, colour and taste! The views, the space, the distance, the quiet...it is all amazing – And if the sun becomes too hot in the early afternoon you can roll down the cane blinds and enjoy the cool breeze. Then up again for the evenings sunset display.
Returning to the entrance hall, where one door leads to the living room – A second door takes you into the very spacious, elegant master bedroom. Twin fourposter beds, side by side and surrounded by impeccably chosen furniture: lovely armchairs, footrests, dressers, rugs in front of the open fireplace. Two doors lead off, one to HER ensuite bathroom and one to HIS! “Hers” is a walk-in shower, “His” is a shower over bath – Both are large, well-appointed and generally in keeping with the style of this outstanding home.
At the far end of the living room glass doors lead into a marvellous, very well equipped, modern kitchen with its own dining area. It is such a blast of bright colours, such contrasting and complementing styles, it is a kitchen that will make you want to create remarkable and wonderful meals! Or just enjoy whipping up a salad and drinks for an unforgettable evening on the adjoining terrace...access directly from the kitchen to the same west-facing covered terrace with a further dining areas, an impressively-sized semi-outdoor living space – And again, what a terrace – they do not often come like this: the size, the views, the seating, the tables...blissful!!!
From the kitchen through to an interior patio, with walls painted in white and ochre, terracotta floor tiles, the blue woodwork, the green of the potted plants, again an explosion of light and space...Complete with a lovely blue tiled water fountain and a couple of wicker chairs in case you need a moment.
From this patio three doors to three further twin bedrooms, each with its own immaculate style and taste, one decorated in light blues and pinks (with an extra childbed), one in light greens and white, one in pastel-paisley tones. All are so soothing, welcoming and inducing to long lazy mornings, it may be hard to drag yourself away. They all have equally well-appointed ensuite bathrooms(two with full baths and one with a walk in shower) and they all have lovely terraces and views.
The interior of this home is magnificent, extravagantly colourful and really a joy to the senses. But the grounds, if it is possible, are just as outstanding – Next to the house there’s a large landscaped garden area featuring a secluded, private swimming pool and a gazebo, brought all the way from Bali with this exact setting in mind, from here the views of the Andalucian countryside stretching into the distance are quite frankly awe inspiring. And of course you will find no better place from where to enjoy the full spectacle of the wonderful sunsets and night skies. There is a rose garden, fruit orchards, olive groves (some 650 arbequina olive trees), some vineyards and miles and miles of unspoilt countryside to explore.
Weather permitting, the swimming pool will be open throughout the year (although, because it's not heated, the normal swimming season is from late April to September, inclusive).
The grounds keeper, who lives on the grounds, takes care of the gardens and pool.
