For Sale in the highly desirable Gaucin village, Serrania de Ronda
CHARMING OLD HOUSE - LARGE PATIO GARDEN, GUEST ANNEX, PLUNGE POOL, UPPER TERRACE WITH STUNNING VIEWS
This enchanting village property with its distinctive ‘cobbled’ façade, is located in a pretty tree-lined street leading up to the church and castle. This is one of the oldest houses in Gaucín and is brimming with authentic Andalusian character, old world charm and quirkiness.
The property is in the heart of the village, a short walk away from a selection of shops, tapas bars and several high-quality restaurants. On-street parking is available nearby.
The house has been stylishly renovated by its English owners over the last decade, who have created a very desirable home with a welcoming homely ambience and a unique blend of Andalusian and Moorish features, nooks & crannies! Most rooms have oak beamed ceilings & terracotta floor tiles. The accommodation surrounds the delightful patio garden with several terraces and a plunge pool. As well as the main house, there is a separate guest annex and a roof terrace with spectacular views.
The beautiful antique entrance doors open to reveal a small vestibule area with glazed doors. The living accommodation is open-plan/split-level and comprises a good-sized comfortable sitting room with an enclosed wood burner and a built-in seating area; a raised dining area, and a fitted kitchen with adjacent pantry, utility room and guest cloakroom. From the dining area there are glazed French doors into the pretty patio garden.
The delightful Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (bath/shower), has glazed doors leading to a spacious terrace overlooking the street below. There is a double guest bedroom, and another guest bedroom with a sofa bed (currently used as an artist's studio), with an external spiral staircase down into the patio garden. A separate shower room serves both guest rooms.
Steps leading up through the patio garden provide access to the separate guest annex at the rear of the property. The annex comprises a large ensuite guest bedroom, with a covered terrace overlooking the patio garden. The adjacent external staircase leads up to the roof terrace with great views. There is also a rear entrance door to the upper street.
The focal point of this impressive property is the stunning patio garden, providing shade in the heat of summer and a lovely cool spot for alfresco dining! Tucked away in a corner is the mosaic-tiled plunge pool. The garden area comprises several levels and terraces, and is filled with an abundance of exotic Mediterranean pot plants, flowering shrubs and pretty planters full of succulents. There are several fruit trees too, including fig, lemon, avocado, and a grape vine. There is also a covered storage area for logs, garden tools etc.
Adjacent to the upper guest annex, a staircase leads up to the fabulous roof terrace with spectacular views of the village, Castle of Eagles, and to the distant Mediterranean coastline and Rock of Gibraltar.
Furniture is available by separate negotiation.
This is an exceptionally desirable property with excellent rental potential.
