SUBSTANTIAL HOUSE WITH A LARGE PATIO GARDEN, ROOF TERRACE & SPECTACULAR VIEWS
This rambling old village house is brimming with Andalusian charm and character and has lots of potential. The house presents an opportunity to refurbish and update the interior, and add value by installing a plunge pool in the patio garden.
The property is situated in the highest part of the village with wonderful views across a myriad of village rooftops to the Mediterranean, Straits of Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of Morocco. This is a prime location along a quiet residential street, a stroll away from the Castle of Eagles and a few minutes walk from village amenities, including a variety of shops, tapas bars and several high quality restaurants.
The house comprises three levels on a generous plot, with a sizeable roof terrace and a patio garden - the roof terrace makes the most of Gaucin’s stunning panoramic views!
Ground floor: (2 bed/2 bath)
The antique wood entrance door opens into an attractive hallway. There is a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom (bath with shower over), and a walk-in storage cupboard. This room has views to the south on one side and a window facing the street on the other.
A further double bedroom has lovely south facing views, and also overlooks the patio garden. From the hallway, a few steps lead down to a storage/utility area with an access door to another outside terrace.
There is a separate good-sized bathroom (bath & separate shower) with pretty decorative tiling.
Lower floor: (3 bed)
From the main entrance hall there are stairs down to the lower level. This comprises a small open area, currently used as a study.
There is a quirky bedroom ideal for children, with a raised bed area accessed by wooden steps. There is a further double bedroom that has a glazed door leading into the patio garden, and also a single bedroom.
On the other side of the entrance hall there are stairs leading to the upper floor. This comprises a large open-plan living room with a wood-burning stove and beamed ceiling. There is a dining area and a spacious ‘Andalusian’ style kitchen. The sizeable roof terrace is directly accessed from the living room. From this level of the property there are spectacular views to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and North Africa.
The spacious roof terrace (32m2), has stunning views of the Castle of Eagles (often illuminated at night) and across the village to the Crestallina mountain range, and beyond to the Mediterranean & Morocco.
The pretty patio garden, with separate side access gate to the street, is partially paved and is a lovely shady spot for alfresco dining. There is also a useful outdoor storage shed.
