PROPERTY DETAILS This is a property of a quite special kind, exquisite, grandiose and of significant sophistication. The wide driveway of the imposing property is like a cultural tour through time and space into the paradise of today, bordered on the one side, by unspoilt almond tree fields and on the other by expansive green spaces, inclusive of tennis court and boules green.
The unusual architecture of the white villa could be by Picasso, extraordinarily modern with elegant curves and pleasantly in harmony with nature. A near artistically formed sun terrace, which perfectly matches the curves of the villa, surrounds the pool area, glorious in its diversity and perfection and with a dreamlike view of the entire coastline and the ever-fascinating Mediterranean Sea. Numerous picturesque seating areas are scattered around the pool on the expansive lawn-covered “Panorama Plateau” under the palm trees and immediately next to an opulently fitted summer-sun and siesta exterior kitchen, which in itself is a rare gem and somehow has a certain magic about it. The same also applies to the numerous rooms throughout the villa with superior floor coverings of uncut marble, countless ceiling lights and a magnificent colour range, emphasize the magical appeal.
Exquisite furnishings and décor reveal the hand of a master craftsman in the case of the interior fittings and the noble country house kitchen is not only a dream for a chef, while dear guests, not to mention poets and thinkers would also gladly make a rendezvous here, especially on winter evenings with some high-quality Jeréz! Everything about this property is the most superior of quality, the wood applied to the windows and doors, the artistically laid, hand-cut slabs and glazed tiles in the bathrooms and on the floors, the magnificent installations and the sumptuous furnishings. And everything is impeccably maintained, like new and with the charm of the authentic and simply beautiful. A fabulous property in a premium location.
