A SUBSTANTIAL VILLAGE HOUSE WITH UNIQUE HAND-CRAFTED CARPENTRY & NATURAL STONE FEATURES - GREAT VIEWS FROM TWO TERRACES
This deceptively spacious three storey village house was beautifully renovated in 2005/2006. It has stacks of rustic Andalusian character and charm and retains many of its original features.
These are enhanced by a striking combination of hand-crafted natural woodwork (oak & chestnut) and some exposed natural stonework - a truly unique and very interesting property.
At the heart of the village, the house is a few minutes away from a variety of shops, tapas bars and high-quality restaurants. From the terraces there are super views of El Hacho mountain and across the village rooftops to the Mediterranean & Gibraltar. To the north west, there are distant views of the Sierra del Libar mountain range.
The antique entrance doors lead into a hallway featuring hand-crafted chestnut cupboards and a wood beamed ceiling. This extensive open-plan area is split-level and comprises a spacious dining area with attractive hand-made chestnut cupboards. There is a separate study room off the hallway and an attractive staircase with feature tiling leading to the first floor.
The rustic country-style kitchen, with exposed brick & whitewashed walls, is spacious and well fitted with chestnut units, black granite work surfaces, a centre island, a range cooker and the original fireplace with wood-burning stove. Flooring is a combination of natural stone, terracotta and decorative hydraulic tiles.
The kitchen leads to an internal patio with a covered utility area, a shower and a larder. There is an external staircase to the first floor from the patio.
The living room is very spacious with a high wood-beamed ceiling and solid oak flooring. An antique wood-burning stove provides a lovely focal point in this beautiful split-level room that also has a TV/snug area in one corner.
Antique doors open into a charming light & airy double bedroom with French doors/Juliet balcony with views along the village street. There is a separate well presented bathroom with shower.
From the living room a partially glazed passageway leads to a small single bedroom. From here there are stairs leading to the partially shaded terrace with north-westerly views across the village rooftops to the mountains beyond.
An attractive wood staircase from the living room leads to an attractive ‘minstrel’s’ gallery overlooking the living area below and is a charming feature. The Master bedroom, with beamed ceiling and exposed brickwork on one wall, is large and airy with a French door/Juliet balcony with interesting views along the the street below.
There is a further double bedroom, and a good-sized modern bathroom with quality fittings and feature Moorish-style arched window openings. Flooring on this level is a combination of terracotta and decorative hydraulic tiling.
A staircase leads to the large roof terrace with spectacular south-westerly views across the village rooftops to El Hacho mountain, the Mediterranean and Gibraltar.
