Superb mountain-side villa built in a modern rustic, open-plan style, flooded with light and sunshine and with outstanding views. A quiet country track leads to the property, which is completely fenced and entry is through an electric gate. A south facing property providing stunning views from all three bedrooms and living spaces across to the Mediterranean, Northern Africa and the Rock of Gibraltar. The living spaces – kitchen, dining room and two sitting rooms – situated on the lower level and built as one long, continuous open and light-filled interior with spectacular views through sliding or shuttered window doors. Floors are traditional terracotta tiles. The kitchen has a breakfast counter, all appliances, and a spacious pantry. Next to the kitchen is a cosy sitting room with wood burner for the winter months, leading to a large dining area and to the main living room with open fireplace and huge sliding windows which can be opened up to create indoor-outdoor living space for most of the year. The living room opens on one side to the swimming pool and a terrace with ancient olive trees, and on the other side to a covered outdoor dining area, shaded with bougainvillea, wisteria and hibiscus. A small corridor leads from the living room to a guest cloakroom and a fully equipped laundry room. There are two main wings to the upper part of the villa. From the entrance hall, one wing has a large atrium which serves as a library/reading room, staircase leading to the master bedroom with a dressing room, sitting area, en-suite bathroom and large balcony views to mountains, sea and across to Africa and Gibraltar. The second wing of the house has two double, en-suite bedrooms and large built-in wardrobes. One bedroom has a balcony and the other has a Juliet balcony. A comfortable all year round home, with shutters and thick walls to keep cool during the summer months, and two wood fires (one wood burner, one open fireplace) plus gas-fired central heating for the short winter. The garden and grounds have lovely plants typical of the region – and a variety of trees, lime, ancient olive, figs, carobs, pines and cypresses. The whole property is secluded and private, and almost invisible from the road. Only 5 minutes’ drive from the village of Gaucin and 45 minutes to the coast or to the cultural centre of magnificent Ronda.
