A new, beautifully built villa in the top side of Sotogrande near the Almenara Hotel. Set in beautiful countryside and South facing with views to the Golfcourse, this property can easily be described as your dream home.
* In order to guarantee maximum interior comfort with minimum energy costs, thermal-acoustic insulation is applied to both sides of the interior brickwork. The exterior walls are double bricked, cement rendered and finished in masonry paint
* Finished in top quality Borja Spanish tiles providing the perfect finish in the best Andalusian Mediterranean style
* Under floor heating
* Marble floor tiling interlaid in some areas (entrance hall, bathrooms) with different colour marble to form elegant chequered patterns.
* kitchen finished in gres ceramic tiling
* The entrance door made of solid wood with security locks, al doors including entrances to bathrooms are larger than standard, 2300 m in height
PVC carpentry includes sliding windows, tilt or tilt & turn windows for god ventilation of the rooms. To darken rooms a system is used consisting of a set of PVC slats, activated by individual electrically operated control button. The entire house has been designed with thermal acoustic glass consisting of double jouning with transparent or matt butyral with air chamber to improve thermal insulation In other words the composition of the glass guarantees a high degree of safety and maximum interior comfort, while ensuring that energy losses from the house are kept to a minimum.
*In this section the house is fitted to the highest levels of quality.
To ensure maximum comfort, the air conditioning system uses an exterior plant easily accessible for maintenance but hidden from view and sufficiently far away for noise not to be a problem, hot or cold air is provided through a network of individual fan-coils located in each of the rooms in the house (bedrooms, living/dining room and kitchen), so that the temperature in each room can be controlled, using a thermostat.
Although this system produces hot air circulation, heating is also provided through under floor heating. This system gives a uniform temperature throughout the house in a natural and even manner. In a suitable location in each house, there is a diesel boiler with two 1,000 litre tanks. This system provides the energy required, for both the under floor heating, and the domestic hot water, which is stored in a 300 litre accumulator tank, thus allowing the use of a number of bathrooms at the same time without a loss in either flow rate or water pressure. To fully optimise the energy consumption of the house, we have also provided individual thermostats for the control of the under floor heating in each room.
*All the piping used is made of insulated copper which prevents losses in temperature with hot water and condensation with cold water. In addition, there is a secondary hot water return system, providing instant water at the desired temperature in every corner of the house. Top quality sanitary appliances are complemented in the bathrooms with large in-built showers and Grohtherm 3000 thermostatically controlled taps from Grohe. The remaining taps are Eurostyle mixer taps made by Grohe.
*This is tri-phase low voltage supply. To improve the control of the house, a principal control panel is fitted to control the entire house and the secondary control panels conveniently distributed, enables the different areas to be controlled independently. Certain functions including exterior lighting for the house and garden or the operation of the swimming pool can be controlled from different panels. The selected mechanism is Bticino Light series. All the rooms are fitted with TV and telephone points. A video-door entry system and the pre-installation of the satellite dish and loudspeaker sound system at the main entrance are included.
As a complement to the security installation built into the house, a security system has also been designed with human presence detectors and an alarm system connected to a security control centre operating in the area (Securitas-Direct).
*As a final complement to the house there is a magnificent garden fully equipped with lighting and an automatic irrigation system. Some of the existing plant species have been blended in the landscaping, while others have been transplanted to other areas of the garden as necessary.
Included in the unique design of the house is a comfortable fully automated swimming pool with recessed steps to avoid the discomfort of a vertical ladder.
