HOLIDAY HIDEAWAY NEAR GAUCIN
DELIGHTFUL CHALET-STYLE COTTAGE, IDYLLIC LOCATION, STUNNING VIEWS, EQUESTRIAN POSSIBILITIES
This charming country cottage offers the perfect ‘far from the madding crowd’ hideaway in an idyllic rural location surrounded by nature. The property is situated on a private estate 20 mins drive from Gaucin, 15 mins from Jimena de La Frontera, 30 mins from the famous golf courses & polo club at Sotogrande, and 50 mins from Gibraltar airport.
There are several large villas on the estate which is accessed by a private, gated track from the main Ronda-Algeciras road. The cottage is tucked away in a tranquil, elevated position with wonderful panoramic south-facing views across the countryside to the Mediterranean coastline and Gibraltar.
The finca comprises 7 acres of flat fertile land with pretty pathways through the woodland and many open areas that are ideal for picnics, or suitable for grazing livestock. The cottage is surrounded by lots of indigenous plants and trees, including olive, carob and almond.
Adjacent to the finca there is a large pond, which is the main water source for the estate and also a haven for wildlife such as deer, fox, otter, mongoose, kingfisher & heron. Water is available year-round and a pumping system supplies the natural water (non potable) to each of the properties on the estate.
The single-storey cottage has a simple open-plan layout and was constructed in 1990 from high quality Danish pine with a traditional tiled roof. It remains in good condition and was home to an English lady owner for many years.
The comfortable living accommodation comprises a spacious light & airy living room with a south-facing bay window and sliding doors leading to the covered terrace. There is also a dining area, a large kitchen, guest WC and store cupboard. The large master bedroom, with built-in wardrobes, also faces south with a bay window overlooking the garden and a glazed door out to the terrace. The double guest bedroom also has built-in wardrobes. There is a good-sized separate bathroom.
Double glazing keeps the cottage warm in winter and cool in summer. The wood-beamed ceilings add character and there are ceramic floor tiles throughout.
The covered south-facing terrace, accessed from the living room, has wonderful views across the garden and surrounding countryside and provides an ideal spot for al-fresco dining. There is ample parking space in front of the property.
