Villa in GaucinAn enchanting country house situated on an exclusive private estate in an elevated position with stunning views to the Mediterranean coast, Gibraltar and North Africa. Only 30 minutes drive from Sotogrande, 50 minutes from Gibraltar airport and 15 minutes from the pretty white village of Gaucín. The estate is accessed via a private, gated track and is in a very tranquil, picturesque and private location.
The house is of an attractive, traditional design; is very well presented and decorated using vibrant Moorish colours. It was Architect designed and constructed 12 years ago and also incorporates self-contained guest accommodation.

The roof has antique roof tiles, there are terra-cotta floors throughout, some hand-made tiles in bathrooms, and most rooms have antique doors and beamed ceilings.
The house has shaded and sunny terraces that wrap round the front of the house and overlook the garden and the breathtaking views. The well established gardens, with a lawn area, contain many exotic Mediterranean plants and shrubs. There is a magnificent, very private swimming pool (designed with the Caribbean in mind!) accessed via feature stone steps leading from the garden. r.The pool is surrounded by terraces and palm trees and at one end there is an 'Out of Africa' style thatched poolside casita complete with dining/seating area, small kitchen and a WC.
The main entrance hall, with staircase, leads into the large open-plan split-level living areas. The first level comprises a well-fitted kitchen with a separate utility room and the dining area with French patio doors leading to the exterior dining terrace which wraps round the front of the house and overlooks the breathtaking views.
