Stunning and beautifully presented 5 bedroom villa, which was featured on 'A Place in the Sun', ideally located on a hilltop in Mojacar Playa, with stunning 360 degree views.
The villa's privacy and views are protected by its more than 18 acres of sloping mountain land.
Designed by a Californian architect, who studied the influence of nature's elements on the property and then incorporated his findings in a design true to the architectural history of Andalusia whilst caring for the comfort of a growing family. One of the remarkable details in the design is the positioning of the windows that let the villa benefit from the warmth of the sun in winter. In summer, when the sun is 18 degrees higher, they provide exactly the opposite effect and the pool area features a travertine terrace which is west facing and out of the sea wind. This makes it both a more enjoyable area and conserves the water temperature more efficiently.
It is an 'Andalusian house' and the architect incorporated historic materials such as antique, handmade roof tiles from Granada, similar to the ones used for the Alhambra.
The mountain on which the villa stands, was attained over 40 years ago by its current owner and his friend. They split up the mountain between them and each built a stunning villa.
The villa, which is accessed via a winding private asphalt road past the friends villa and is positioned higher, comprises of: entrance area which runs through a romantic arched passage which is completely covered by green vine plants; impressive double wooden door leading to the entrance hall; spacious living room with observatory and an authentic Andalusian tapas bar incorporated. This bar is hidden behind wooden doors and a few steps up from the living room and can double as a podium. The living room comes with a very high ceiling with Moresque curved corners and a marble fireplace. It is a stunning room, but it almost fades away when looking at that gorgeous scenery behind the windows.
The entrance hall also leads to an office, guest WC, the pool area and to the dining room which is bright and overlooks the 200m2 pool area via 3 French doors. From this room there is also access to a south facing porch that overlooks the Mediterranean and Playa Macenas.
Behind the dining room is a hall with storage space and a half open kitchen with sea views and access to the porch. The kitchen divides the properties' private quarters from the entertaining rooms. An arch opens to a breakfast bar in the spacious family room. This room has large windows and sea views. It is a spacious room divided into a dining area and a comfortable living room with large fireplace. From the family room there is access to a hall with large glass doors that open to the pool area. Opposite there is a corridor leading to the bedrooms and to the left, a few steps down to the master bedroom with living room area, walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite, marble bathroom with double sink unit, shower and hydromassage bath and a private south-east facing terrace.
Via the corridor, 3 further bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. At the end of the corridor is another access to the pool area. Each bedroom has a Juliette balcony with unique sea views. The bathrooms are opposite the bedrooms and 1 of the bathrooms has a sauna.
There is also a separate guest/staff apartment under the main house, with a south facing terrace and porch. It consists of a small kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room.
The villa has a double garage with direct access to the house, a 'water house' where they have a huge water deposit, from the time that they did not have tap water. This could easily be turned into a small guest house.
Behind the water house is a tennis court which needs some renovating.
It is a very solicited house by film crews, but its current owners only invited in two film crews: one was for the shooting of a video clip with the members of Queen and the other was the crew of 'A Place in The Sun'. The makers of the popular Channel Four TV programme decided to dedicate a special feature on this villa, now that it is for sale.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a hilltop with a stunning private villa and its surrounding land at Mojacar Playa's beautiful sea front.
