This charming, picturesque four-bedroom villa forms a tranquil country estate set at the foot of the Crestellina Mountains that surround the white village of Casares, just 5 minutes’ drive from the centre of the village, 12 minutes from the main coastal highway and 15 minutes from Costa del Sol beaches.
Access to the home is via a full tarmac road, which leads from the main highway right to the door of the house, allowing access to any type of vehicle.
The views from the house are simply spectacular and the sunsets are totally dreamy overlooking as they do the Genal Valley with the Alcornocales natural park in the background. From the rear, the views of the Sierra Crestellina cannot leave anyone unmoved. Here the silence is broken only by the flight of vultures that nest in gullies a few metres from the property.
The house features a fully equipped kitchen with direct access to a central dining room and charming living room, where a welcoming fireplace is perfect for keeping cosy on winter nights. Just to the left of the dining room another spacious living room offers direct access to a partially covered L-shaped porch, which surrounds the southwest façade of the property—an ideal location for pleasant lunches and outdoor dining.
Just off the dining room a corridor leads to three generously proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms, one is also used as the guest bathroom. The third bedroom has its own en suite bathroom and dressing area.
Taking the stairs, we reach the master bedroom on the upper floor, which encompasses the whole of the first level of the home. It features an elegant en suite bathroom, spacious dressing room, grand entrance hall and a large private terrace with breath-taking views over the Genal Valley. There is also a separate office/study on this floor.
The traditional style villa makes use of original noble wooden doors that date back to the majestic grandeur of Andalusian farmhouses, as well as exquisite antique furniture, beamed ceilings and bespoke fitted wardrobes.
Outside, the garage is right next to the house and the pool with a little washroom directly in front, although sufficiently separate from the property to allow the sun to shine in throughout the day.
Within the estate there are two very distinct areas. On the one hand, the property described above with its entertainment areas and surrounded by a charming garden of approximately 2,000m2 and on the other, the feature that brings great value to this home is its location and environment (or ‘large garden’). The full extent of the grounds covers approximately 48,000m2 with around 1,300 carob trees, 300 olive trees and 200 wild olive trees, all set in rows. The trees were planted around 20 years ago and have been perfectly maintained by the current owner to become a large orchard of native trees. The carob crop is currently used as food for the sheep that are kept by the owner some metres from the property. A 30m2 storage facility houses machinery and other products for use on the farm, which has a drinking water supply network, electricity and well water with unlimited flow.
Plot : 50.000 m2
Built surface : 326 m2
Porches : 106 m2
Storage : 60 m2
Across the road, with an area of approximately 240,000m2, is a completely independent plot of land with olive and mastic trees mixed with arable farmland. It is accessed via a well-kept gravel road, which runs from the main Gaucín-Casares highway. A substantial investment has been made to improve all internal roads and piping for river water channelling.
In the centre there is a farmhouse of approximately 300m2 with water and electricity that currently houses around 100 sheep. The whole of this second property is perfect for those looking to keep their own livestock, whether sheep as with the current owner or horses—another popular option in the area. There is also the option to expand the livestock facilities. As far as residential use is concerned, it is possible to build either a property linked to the farming activity or tourist accommodation/hotel.
