An oasis in La Zagaleta, Benahavís

Share Diana Morales | Apr 6 2010

Imagine an impressive villa in la Zagaleta gated community with 24 hour security, two 18-hole golf courses, helipad, equestrian centre, various sporting facilities and red-carpet services. Moreover, image the property is absolutely private, with designer gardens, and is not only a frontline golf property but is actually surrounded by golf course on three sides.

Set on an elevated position offering beautiful golf and coast views, this property, located in La Zagaleta Golf & Country Club, is now available and is definitely one of our favourites. The house was designed by Helge Sypereck (award wining Berlin architect) and built in 1998 in cooperation with well-known local architect Miguel Tobal. The entrance to the property is beautiful, as you enter into a courtyard, with roofed gallery, a fountain and a variety of plants and flowers.

To one side there is the main house with 2 bedrooms on the upper floor with adjoining covered terraces, 2 bathrooms, a dressing area and a study. On the ground floor there is a living room, a dining room, a roofed terrace, a kitchen, a guest toilet plus several terraces with views to the south and west. To the other side of the courtyard there is a magnificent guest wing, with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 kitchenette and a terrace with views to the west.

The main house has been built as a comfortable holiday home for a couple and temporary guests but bearing in mind that properties are usually quite substantial in La Zagaleta, the current owners had their architect plan an optional expansion in accordance with the local building code. The current owners spend a few months in the house every year, so the property has had very little use since its construction. The gardens were magnificently designed by landscape artist Gerald Huggan (designer of Marbella Club Hotel gardens, Royal Las Brisas Golf Course and Finca Cortesin among others) and offer a variety of mature plants and trees, making the property a great private and tranquil retreat.
