This ultra modern ‘Cortijo-style’ country villa is situated on a 50,000m2 plot between the picturesque villages of Casares and Gaucin on Spain’s Costa del Sol and comes with the potential to construct siginifcant equestrian facilities and the option to purchase an additional 30.000m2 of land.
Designed on 2 levels around a quaint courtyard with orange trees and a fountain and blending traditional Andalucian architecture with ultra modern design, the property is sold with all its paper work/licences in order. In fact, it’s the only newly built house available anywhere in the area following the introduction of the Junta de Andalucia’s new rustic land laws (?Ley del Suelo?) which prohibits the construction of new properties in rural areas. This alone guarantees its future investment potential. Thanks to its elevated position, the property offers buyers frankly spectacular views of the Genal River Valley and the surrounding mountains (almost worth the asking price of the property alone) and yet is very private and secluded.
Just 15 minutes drive inland from the coast and with easy access via a private driveway that leads up from the Casares to Gaucin road, the entance to the property features a charming hand-laid stone driveway leading around the side of the house towards the main entrance, where a roundabout provides easy turning space for vehicles and a covered carport area has space for 2 cars.* The ground floor of the property opens on to a spacious double-height hallway, with a beautiful circular hard wood-clad turret. Immediately to the right, there’s a large study and a separate fully-appointed guest WC. This entrance hall provides access to the entire house, which is blessed with marble floors throughout. To the left is a long passageway leading to 3 sizeable bedrooms, each with ample built-in cupboard space and private en suite bathroom facilities. Just beyond the entrance hall and through a set of full-height glass doors is the property’s kitchen and an independent dining room.
The spacious kitchen comes fully-fitted and equipped with stainless steel hi-tech appliances, including a unique extractor fan designed to rise up out of the central work island to extract air downwards and out of the property underground. The dining room is large enough to seat up to 12 guests comfortably and overlooks both the rural countryside though large pane windows, and the property’s charming orange blossom courtyard. Another of the most stylishly eye-catching features of this house is a long narrow corridor with a vaulted ceiling leading from the entrance hall ? past the kitchen and dining room ? to the main living room area which is flanked by impressive, classical-style stone columns and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard.
The living room is just a couple of broad steps down from the dining room and also overlooks the orange blossom courtyard through large French windows. It also has stunning panoramic views of the valley below and the white village of Gaucín perched on the cliff tops in the distance. An elegant staircase finished in aged Italian Travertine marble with a dark hardwood and glass banister leads to the upper floor, which comprises of a main bedroom with its walk-through dressing area and impressive marble bathroom suite. This bedroom enjoys views of the dramatic backdrop of Sierra Crestellina mountain behind the house. A second main guest suite shares the upper floor, complete with a built-in hardwood wardrobe space and private bathroom suite.
Lovely landscaped Mediterranean gardens replete with a large salt water swimming pool complete this superb property. The property also comes with its own water well, air conditioning and oil-fired underfloor heating throughout. This incredible property represents a real investment opportunity, especially given that in more bouyant times, the asking price of the property could easily be around the 3,000.000 Euro mark.
