Villa for sale in Benahavis
Situated on an idyllic elevated plateau and surrounded by the greenery of the hills and its beautiful gardens, this traditional style mansion with magnificent panoramic views along the coast from Gibraltar to Morocco up to Marbella was completed in 2001 and totally refurbished in 2014. It is accessed via a gated private lane from the main road and is approximately 8 km away from the beach and from the town of San Pedro de Alcantara with a good variety of professional and commercial services. This unique estate, built in the Andalusian-Arabic tradition, includes various tranquil courtyards, spacious patios, fountains, porches and galleries which create substantial interconnected living areas with services adjacent.
Upon arrival, a large double wooden entrance door leads into a lovely entrance driveway with ancient olive tree and plenty of parking space. A stucco painted large entrance foyer with a fireplace and wooden beamed ceilings welcomes visitors to this stunning villa that leads to either the eastern or western wings surrounded by fountains and indoor courtyards.
In the eastern wing we can find an elegant two-storey library and the spacious owners suite with a fireplace, two bathrooms, dressing area and its own terrace with a view on to the rose gardens. An additional bedroom suite completes the main accommodation. Adjacent to the principal accommodation and within the main building there is a beautiful guest wing with imposing vaulted ceilings with wooden beams and an independent entrance which comprises three bedroom suites, two on the ground floor and a third one on the first floor which also enjoys a private lounge.
Straight ahead off the entrance hall, passing open courtyards on each side, a beautiful arched hallway leads to the large main reception room with fire place, doors to the covered terrace and open sea views, doors on one side lead to a formal dining area with an exit to the wide covered terrace. A light informal dining room with panoramic views of the Mediteranean coast is set next to the chef’s classic kitchen with fully fitted central island, large refrigerated cold store and Smeg and Miele electric appliances.
The entrance hall has a lift which leads up to a substantial room currently used as a board room with adjacent office space upstairs and down to a wine cellar in the basement, both of which can also be accessed via staircases.
