DESCRIPTION

Fabulous fully renovated villa nearing completion located in a private, tranquil cul de sac in Nueva Andalucía. Set in one of the finest locations of the Golf Valley, just a few minutes from Puerto Banús, its frontline position overlooks a broad sweep of fairway of arguably the best golf course on the Costa del Sol – Las Brisas – while also enjoying great views to La Concha mountain. This singular setting, combined with the comforts, style and sophistication of a contemporary home, is what differentiates this villa and sets it apart. When a property enjoys a location in an established area it means the gardens are mature, the trees tall and the surrounding plots all taken and built upon. In other words, an established area is one with no more room for construction, meaning that features such as tranquillity, privacy and views are safeguarded. Usually you will find older properties in such prime positions simply because the finest spots were built upon first. Yet despite occupying the best locations Marbella has to offer, the villas themselves are often not up to the standards demanded by today’s homebuyer in terms of comfort, style and technical sophistication.

The only way to have the best of both worlds – best location and modern sophistication – is to thoroughly renovate and restyle an existing home, which is what has been so skilfully and tastefully done with this property. New construction is not really an option, not only because of the short supply of comparable plots, but mainly because of the introduction of new planning regulations, which have considerably reduced the size of the houses that can now be built on a given plot. This villa, for example, has a built area of 622 m2 on a 1,625 m2 plot. If it had to be rebuilt anew on the same plot, the new property would be limited to a built area of 325 m2 under current regulations.

More than just another contemporary home, this house incorporates colonial elements into a clean, crisp modern style that results in a refined, comfortable home with lots of character in which the aesthetic and the practical – form and function – are beautifully balanced. A property for individualists, it stands out as probably the best updated villa in Las Brisas.

From concept to completion, this is a one-off villa made to measure with care and attention. Much detail has gone into the selection of materials, the layout including the open plan living/dining area and kitchen, and the creation of a home in which a wide range of decorative styles can successfully be applied to suit the owner’s furnishings and personal preferences. Providing such a wonderful canvas for decoration, where one can colour the setting for an enviable lifestyle, has taken a great deal of thought, preparation and above all, a labour of love.

The materials chosen in the construction are therefore not the most obvious, cheapest or most convenient from the constructor’s point of view, but rather selected with the end result – of living in this property – in mind. This applies to the quality stone of the driveway and the garden path, the honed travertine of the terracing and the handpicked grey Porcelanosa floor tiles of the interior, which will appeal to people with modern tastes, yet feature the texturing that gives it character while also providing a clean background for decoration.

As the modern gate opens the crisp lines of the property’s wall give way to a clean, uncluttered distribution in which the white of the villa and garage contrasts beautifully with the deep green tones of the garden. This aspect is perhaps even prettier when illuminated with ambient lighting in the evenings, making the driveway and entrance even more elegant. Inside, matt grey floor tiles combine with white walls and chrome and glass detailing to produce a sophisticated modern ambience where lighting again plays an important role. With LED lighting throughout and a home automation system that allows for control of the lighting, heating and cooling equipment, the Venetian blinds, security alarm and cameras, as well as the home entertainment system, this is a villa possessed of all the latest luxuries and technical features. The entrance hall leads past a cloakroom to a spacious open-plan living and dining room that enjoys magnificent views and connects with a modern kitchen with bar, breakfast area, separate laundry room and an impressively lit contemporary glass wine cellar that is a design feature in its own right. Its temperature and humidity settings provide the ideal microclimate for the keeping of fine wines, yet don’t interfere with the kitchen, which features a combination of the latest Siemens and Miele appliances. Also on this level is a spacious bedroom with en suite bathroom and its own study room, which could be turned into a cinema room. Natural light and views of the garden, the golf course and La Concha Mountain flow into all rooms, which connect to the embracing porches that lead straight down to a large pool area and flowing green garden.

On this lower level you will also find a covered pool patio with shower and changing rooms, a BBQ and full outdoor kitchen with relaxing and dining areas, as well as a beautiful infinity pool. Following the pool terraces towards the lawns is a lower porch that provides terracing for each of the four bedroom suites contained on this level, including an incredibly spacious master bedroom, offering in the process a great many private spots in which to relax and enjoy the sun. From its garden, the property offers direct access to the Las Brisas golf course and the wonderful pathways that flank it.

The list of state-of-the-art amenities is long, among it the latest Duravit sanitary ware with Sensowash seats – a pioneering innovation in the world of shower toilet seats that merges toilet and bidet functions in one single unit, elegant doors with concealed hinges and magnetic locks that allow for noiseless closing and a computer-controlled under floor heating/cooling system that works seamlessly with the air heating/cooling equipment. This is in addition to the home automation system that can be expanded to suit the needs and desires of the owner. High tech is of course not incompatible with artistic sensibility, a sensibility that is evident from the choice of materials and decorative elements, such as the special mosaics commissioned for the villa from renowned artist Mark Kennedy, the special marbles imported from around the world and the unique samurai armour acquired at auction.

Clean modern design merged with technological sophistication and refinement in an unequalled location with fantastic views, silence and absolute privacy.
