Country property for sale Estacion Gaucin, Self sufficient Forest retreat.
Country property for sale Andalucia CF1
Situated in the middle of a cork oak forest near the villages of Colmenar and Cortes de la Frontera, this is a very special and charming property, the perfect off grid hideaway to get away from it all but with great communications and accessibility. The area itself is of outstanding natural beauty and tranquility, with a river to swim in nearby and plenty of bars and restaurants to go to. There is a train station 15 minutes from the property, it is an hour from Gibraltar airport and hour and a half from Malaga airport.
Set in its own clearing and comprising of around 1.5 hectares of land with myriad mature fruit trees and vines, the house is traditionally made with a timber frame and sand and lime walls. There are two stories, the one above being a mezzanine which is currently divided into three rooms. The ground floor is open plan with living and kitchen area, a beautiful large fireplace and a terrace to the side to take in the forest views. There is a shady cobbled patio at the front of the house and next to it is a large alberca made with smooth concrete, perfect for swimming in with a natural spring running through it. There is an outhouse that houses the loo and used to serve as bathroom.
It is a property that needs some work, in the house and grounds, as it hasn´t been lived in for a while. The foundations are there to create an oasis within the forest, completely private and surrounded by trees and nature, with an established orchard and own water supply.
