Casa Carmen is peacefully located in the middle of the vibrant white village of Gaucin (close to the shops and restaurants) with stunning views across the mountains to Gibraltar and North Africa.
It is a traditional 3 storey character village property with architect-designed modern/original interior features. There are two main double bedrooms on the second floor, one en-suite with walk-in shower and the other served by a separate family bathroom with bath - all with modern suites and a contemporary polished cement finish. On the third floor is a double pull-out sofa bed for two further guests.
The ground floor comprises an open plan dining, lounge and stylish kitchen area leading through French doors and steps up to a two-tier terrace. On the first level is a delightfully planted terrace with sun loungers, Mexican chiminea, outdoor table with parasol seating six and an open shower. More steps lead up to a striking new plunge pool (10x8x5) with stunning views down the mountains to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and North Africa. The entire property has a mix of chic ceiling/floor lights and subtle tile-encased ambient lights. On the third floor the small sitting/sleeping area opens out, through French doors, on to a large terraced balcony with magnificent views of the Genal Valley down to the coast and across the red-tiled village roofs. This terrace provides another ideal outdoor dining area.
The lounge boasts a large fireplace and flat screen TV, DVD player and Bose speakers with smartphone link.
This delightful house is located in a quiet part of the village and yet on the doorstep of all amenities, including a small supermarket, countless classic Spanish tapas bars and fantastic restaurants offering modern and traditional cuisine.
To the north, the dramatic 15th century mountain top city of Ronda with Spain's oldest bullring, is only a memorable 40 minute drive away, while to the south, the Mediterranean coast/beaches including Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona are but 25-45 minutes away.
