Marbella’s first luxury avant-garde villa in Alcuzcuz, Benahavis.
Designed and built under Passive House Regulations and Standards, this property is walking distance to La Heredia, a picturesque pueblo in true Andalusian style. Here one can find an authentic Italian restaurant, a Dutch bakery and delicatessen, a local bar (famous for their large gin and tonics) and a butcher’s and bodega that host regular wine tasting and tapas events.
In front of the villa is Los Arqueros Golf & Country Club where there is a bar & restaurant, padel & tennis courts and a fully equipped fitness center offering cardio, spinning and cross training classes.
The villa was designed to maximize the views, and all rooms in the villa take advantage of the views down the valley towards the sea, especially the five principal living areas which directly face the coast.
A perfectly symmetrical room with the ceiling lights redefining the sky and two warriors inviting us to look outwards - this is designer opulence at its best.
The high ceiling running into two floors, the lighting an imposing design element in itself and the large mural on the wall – it all adds to the splendour of this space.
The magnificent terrace has a sunbathing area, a fire pit with comfy sofas and a terrace area for each living space – the formal lounge, the family TV room and the kitchen/dining area.
This space also has stunning views, which is not surprising, given that the house was designed to maximize the views from every single room.
The floor-to-ceiling window in the kitchen slides open at the touch of a button and brings you to the kitchen garden and mini orchard where you can pick herbs and fruit all year round.
The open plan design of the villa allows you to watch television without losing sight of the outside views, while also providing a line of sight across the formal lounge towards the kitchen.
With only a wall of glass separating the TV room from the terrace, the inside and outside spaces simply merge into one.
Glass walls provide more than 180-degree views with natural light entering from almost every angle.
This luxury suite includes a workspace and walk-in wardrobe with custom-built cupboards covering 20 linear meters allowing for a clutter-free environment.
The bathroom comprises a bath, double shower and double hand basin units - all set off against beautiful back-lit porcelain tiles.
