Property description

Rustic but contemporary, this spacious house has recently been refurbished to a high standard. It is stylishly designed and furnished offering traditional materials with care and attention to detail and all the necessary mod-cons. The property used to be the owner's residence for most of the year and as such a homely feel remains complete with books, board games and home comforts.

The traditional thick walls ensure that even on the hottest days of midsummer the house remains comfortably cool. There is a modern central heating system with radiators in all bedrooms ensuring it is equipped for winter months too. ( extra gas heating charge applies in winter )

Located on the peaceful outer edge of pretty rural Gaucin, and only thirty minutes from the sea, this spacious house is perched on a stunning mountain top location offering breathtaking views as far as the coast of Africa. A gorgeous terraced garden tumbles down past citrus trees and hammocks through shady pergolas to a beautiful private swimming pool.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a garden designer and my wife is a jewellery designer. We both love travel, art and interiors. We also have a deep passion for Spain and in particular Andalucia. It has been a dream of ours to build a house in an exciting foreign location. Gaucin is certainly that. This house of ours is a result of that dream. Our mountain top escape from the real world, a little paradise that refllects everything that we enjoy in life. We especially love the climate here and outdoor life . The garden and pool that we have created here is our version of a Mediterranean Eden.

Why the Owner Chose Gaucín, Málaga, Spain:
We have had a love affair with Spain and particularly Andalucia for a long time. When we discovered the gorgeous white village of Gaucin , we knew we had found our place. The village is very beautiful and friendly and although we are inland in the beauty of rural Spain , we are only 1/2 hour drive to the sea and all of the amenities of the coast. The best thing about the location however, is the views. From our terrace we can see unbroken views across the sea at the straits of Gibraltar all the way to The riff mountains in Morocco.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house is private and quiet in a pretty, tranquil part of the village. it is within only a short walk to the local tapas bars and restaurants. Up here in the mountains we can enjoy the peace and tranquility of a traditional mountain village and our private garden and swimming pool , but are in fact only a short drive of 1/2 hour to the sea and the beach. There are many places of interest within striking distance of Gaucin . The historic stunning town of Ronda is only 45 minutes away and we are only one and a half hours drive to the Jerez and the city of Malaga . The stunning historic cities of Seville , Cordoba and Granada , fascinating for their Moorish architecture, history and culture are within a daytrip away for sightseeing and excursions. There are also several daily ferries to Tangiers in Morocco (only a 30 minute crossing) from the port of Algeciras which is only a one hour drive away.
