Gaucin property: ref: MB1163
A beautiful cortijo, or farmhouse estate, has come up for sale near the desirable white village of Gaucin. It was run as a hotel for many years, attracting people from all over the world with its blend of rustic comfort and luxury and the best views in the valley to Gibraltar, the Straits and Africa beyond.
There are 37 hectares of land around the cortijo which include what can be the only infinity tennis court in the world, beautiful mature gardens, a walled orchard, swimming pool and a great deal of native oaks and untouched countryside. It is sublimely peaceful and secluded and yet only 10 minutes from the village and 45 minutes from Gibraltar airport.
As it was run as a hotel it is very well equipped with a large professional kitchen and in the lower floor, a laundry and linen store, large wine cellar, a billiard room which could be converted into a gym or cinema, an office and a large garage.
The ground floor comprises of a grand reception room with a sweeping staircase to the top floor, a large sitting room, large dining room, the kitchen and various terraces and shaded areas round the outside.
Upstairs there are 5 large bedrooms, all en suite. The main lager bedroom also has a sitting room and a dressing room. The views of the surrounding countryside and down to the sea are stunning from the top floor. The rooms are arranged around a glassed atrium that lets the light flood into the house below.
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to run it as a business or indeed as a sumptuous family home. It is a rare gem with lots of character that has been built with love and charm.
