Jimena 3 bed 3 bath plus 1 bed 1 bath 38,000 m2 plot
A private driveway takes us to the remote controlled front gate with a manicured lawn area leading to a beautiful courtyard shared by both properties. There is also a lovely fountain to cool and calm on hot days. Both properties are single storey, bungalow style and surrounded by greenery. There is a private pool and bbq area, paddock for horses and large open fronted storage area which can house approximately 8 cars or be converted into whatever you want, a workshop for example.
The main villa’s double breasted front door opens into a large open plan sitting room which forms the heart of this modern yet rustic property. It is subdivided into dining area, reading zone, and TV zone with beautiful big fireplace. Large kitchen with windows that open out onto the great outdoors and laundry area leading off from it. The sitting room and kitchen as well as two of the three bedrooms have windows fronting onto the pool and barbecue area and all rooms look down and out onto the most beautiful, gently rolling, Andalusian foothills.
The main property is a pleasure to behold. Ranch style walls and wooden balustrades line the drive and combine with reclaimed roof tiles to add that extra touch of rusticity. All rooms are large and airy with natural light coming in. 3 beds, 3 baths, 2 ensuite and one with communal access for use by house guests when entertaining. Air conditioning, fitted wardrobes and beamed ceilings throughout. (Including the guest house.) Talking of which, this has a sitting room with charming wood burning stove in the corner near large windows from which to enjoy the majestic views. The bedroom has full bathroom ensuite with shower incorporated – as per the main house’s bathrooms. The American style kitchen and sitting room space is open plan, maximising opportunities to socialise whilst preparing food etc. Having stated the main property is a joy to behold, the same holds true of these comfortable guest quarters. All rooms are large and airy. These 2 houses -property and guest quarters – are set in almost 4 hectares. (38,000 m2), both above and below the properties. Fantastic views all around. There is a barbecue zone near the swimming pool and the overall feeling is of privacy and tranquillity. Situated in the ‘La Barca de Moreno’ sector of Jimena de la Frontera. 35 minutes from Gibraltar. All the paperwork is in order. Suffice to say these modern, well-designed properties and grounds really are terrific value. By the way, the nearest neighbours are some 500 metres away at the drive entrance . . . rustic but not isolated.
