Down a quiet street in the village of Gaucin, lies the Casa Agapantha. This new addition to our portfolio has been rennovated by the owners of the Casa Blanca near Ronda. In similar fashion, this old house has been given a new lease of life with imagination and creative flair. Over several years it has been restored, gradually rebuilt and decorated. The garden, being in the village, is relatively small, but so well thought out and with a splendid view of the valley, mountains and the outline of Africa - on a clear day. The house does have an adjacent property with the terrace of the neighbour, clearly visible and vice versa. However the property is not inhabited and the owners come only rarely.
The terrace is in a good vantage point and has a reclaimed wooden table etched with character and six chairs. Steps lead down to the very pretty garden where there is a small, but beautiful swimming pool measuring 5 x 2.5 meters - with a depth of 1 metre to 1.8 metres, just big enough. Elgantly painted in white with four brass taps it is very inviting. Four good quality sunbeds are provided facing the view.The garden is planted with lavander, cypreses and agapanthas and wooden decking completes the well thought out design.
The interior of the house has a generous hallway that leads through to the large sitting/dining room that runs the width of the property.The furniture is ecelectic with leather sofas from the 1940s, unusally framed pieces, a huge modern painting and a good collection of Art Books.There is a flat screen television, DVD,CD and Wi-Fi provided. A wood burning stove has been installed for the cooler months,(10€ per day for logs payable locally) although there is also central heating.The dining area is imaginitive with different lighting for different moods. The oval table is accompanied by six chairs. The kitchen is immediatly off the dining area with fridge/freezer, hob, and microwave. The washing machine is in the basement.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms, all individually decorated and each with their own ambiance. One of the bedrooms has twin beds, one with singles placed together and one has a double bed. Two have air conditioning. There are cupboards and writing desks.
This is a delightful village house close to all amenities of shops and a variety of restaurants. It is also a good base to explore Andalucia with the white villages of Casares, Atajate and Benalauria a short drive away. Jerez, Gibrlaltar, Cadiz and the Costa del Sol beaches and golf courses are all accessable.
