This contemporary villa, surrounded by abundant nature, beautiful woodland, and mountain streams is nestled in an exclusive urbanisation, considered one of the top resorts in Europe. With two golf courses and an equestrian club, the urbanisation stands out for its privacy and security, as well as for its service. Stunning views of the mountains and of the sea can be enjoyed, and Puerto Banus and Marbella are only 20 minutes away. The house is built on three levels, following the inclination of the plot, and most of the rooms face south so that sea views and the sun can be enjoyed. The north façade concurs with the pedestrian access that goes around the house from the street and has a sober but vigorous architectonical approach, with a series of walls covered in stone. A wooden walkway crosses a beautiful water feature and leads to the main access door to the house. The entrance door leads to a bright, double-height hall, where a wooden footbridge hanging on the first floor leads to the bedrooms. A spacious area with greenery and water, covered by a large skylight, unfolds the path connecting the hall to the living room, where a further double-height space reveals itself. A wine bottle rack gives privacy to the dining area. A bar area connects the dining room with the generously-sized kitchen. The central island with its cooking station is perfect for organising dinners and events. Two bedrooms en suite, with full bathrooms and large dressing rooms benefiting from natural light, are located in the opposite wing of this floor, next to a TV lounge with a double-sided fireplace that faces the living room. A spiral staircase leads from the hall to the first floor. The first floor consists of two wings, one for the master bedroom, with dressing room, double bathroom, and a central patio, and the other with two en suite bedrooms and dressing rooms, connected through a living room and a study. A walkway with a reading area and library connects both wings through a large, double-height space. An external staircase leads to the solarium, where a minigolf area, a chill out zone with a spa and a seating area, and a barbecue with a pergola all offer spectacular views of the sea and the mountains. In the basement, a 4-car garage gives access to a guest apartment, with an independent entrance from the ground floor, a cinema room and a large open plan meeting room. An indoor pool with sauna and hammam is also located on this floor. The gym gives access to this area of relaxation and enjoyment, which can be viewed through a huge window. A vehicle display lift and a cellar area are also housed here. The service area is detached from this zone, and is reached via the laundry area. An independent staircase gives access to all levels of the house. The entire basement opens through enormous windows to a very spacious terrace with play areas and to the garden, bringing brightness and freshness and connecting the inside with the outside. The vertical fusion of the indoors with the outdoors is enhanced by the over-sized windows and the interior patios that are revealed as you move around the house. The special emphasis on details brings uniqueness. This is enhanced by using a variety of materials and by the light screening effect, the reflection and the sound of water, the peace and natural aromas that the green areas provide, and the interior patios inspired by Japanese courtyards.
