This building is unusually modern for a rural property in Andalucia – Built high on the ridge overlooking the valley of Gaucin, down to the Mediterranean sea and Morocco beyond, it is just over a kilometre from Gaucin itself. Modern or Postmodern, the architecture is a combination of styles, forms and spaces all brought together to create this comfortable, light-filled home. Everything has been designed to take full advantage of its wonderful setting.
Accessed through an electric gate and a short driveway up to the rear of the house. One enters into a small interior courtyard, a covered walkway to one side and a flowerbed overflowing with rosemary (and a small lemon tree), to the other. At the centre of the courtyard a table and chairs, this is a good place to enjoy a quiet moment.
An entrance hall/coatroom leads through impressive double wooden doors into an even more impressive light filled, open plan kitchen-dining and living room. A few steps down to the living room with its double-height ceiling and double-height windows flooding the room with light. The fireplace, hanging between the two levels, divides the areas and adds a unique, creative accent to the contemporary interior design.
The kitchen is a well equipped family kitchen, with a good sized larder, the centre kitchen island with a double ceramic sink adds plenty of work space and is a good place to drink your morning tea. On this level there is a light-wood dining table large enough to make this inside dining area fully functional to fit all the villa residents in one sitting.
The living room is furnished with a couple of comfy black leather armchairs, built-in window seats with cushions along the length of the wall. Light floods in through the many doors and windows, looking out to the remarkable pool that wraps itself around the front of the house like a veranda. Doors open onto the terrace with a covered BBQ dining area – looking out over the gorgeous blue infinity pool to the valley below or across to the village of Gaucin. And what a sensational infinity pools it is, its azure-blue waters running along the side of the house and merging into the glorious nature all around.
From the living room a door leads to the a small terrace and on to a double bedroom with ensuite shower room - Nicely tucked away from the rest of the house. Perfect for those who like to retreat to their own quiet place.
From the entrance hall stairs lead to another bright, light bedroom – this one a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room.
On the other side of the living room, the south wing, is split on two levels:
10 stairs down to a big double bedroom with a large open fireplace, cosy armchairs and direct access to the terraces and swimming pool. This room has no en suite facilities.
Stairs up to the master bedroom - A lovely, spacious double room, the bed facing the French doors leading onto a large private terrace. You can wake up to the sun rising over the marvellous sweep of majestic mountain terrain and glorious countryside or, at night, lie in bed and admire the explosion of stars in the sky. The bathroom is complete, with a good sized bath and a walk in shower unit.
This house is a delight, flooded with light - its contemporary design giving it a unique modern air – it really is a privileged setting.
From the pool area stairs will take you up to a roof terrace with views far and wide. 360º of richly forested hillsides and dramatic terrain, the Crestelina Ridge rising up proudly in the distance as if standing guard over the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol just beyond. Views from here up to the Gaucin’s Castillo del Àguila, high on the hillside beyond, are splendid.
A perfect base for anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet of real Andalusian countryside. Surrounded by forests, hills and river valleys, there are excellent walking tracks, spectacular views. Countryside glory and tranquillity is the order of the day here but you are not isolated. Just a short drive away (or a 15-20 minute energetic walk) is one of the prettiest Pueblos Blancos, Gaucin, with all amenities, bars, restaurants and shops and the walk is even more agreeable on the way home as it is mosly all downhill!
And from Gaucín, you can explore far and wide... the Costa del Sol, the Costa de la Luz, Ronda, Sevilla, if you are feeling adventurous even Morocco is not too far away!
Weather permitting, the swimming pool will be open from April to the end of October.
