Dream Home in La Zagaleta
MPDunne – Hamptons International is a specialist in La Zagaleta, thanks to the expertise of company principals Mary and Lawrence, who have the ability to list and sell the finest homes in this most exclusive of Marbella addresses. Among the very best La Zagaleta villas to reach the market in a long time is this beautifully styled seven-bedroom villa, set within a mostly flat, elevated plot with magnificent greenery and idyllic sea and mountain views.
The home offers 1,418m2 of built space, laid out over three well-integrated levels and surrounded by lush gardens on a 7,699m2 plot. Set on a quiet, private road, this villa offers a uniquely welcoming and ambient sense of arrival, as you approach the front door through an attractive car-free forecourt with an extended covered portico. Cool, shaded and rich in greenery, it provides a stylishly pleasant way to enter the home, while this area is also ideally suited to entertaining.
The entrance leads straight into a tasteful entrance hallway that blends classical and contemporary styling and detailing with rare aplomb. Harmony and balance are also evident in the dimensions and distribution of the villa, which has a flow to it that is at once impressive and homely – aesthetically pleasing and also very well thought out and functional. Stairs lead to the bedroom suites on the first floor, while the entrance hall also leads to the cloakroom and guest toilet, the expansive living room, a very private master suite, and the contemporary country kitchen and pantry.
The large, panoramic windows let in natural light and views of the lush garden and shimmering sea, and in just a few paces you step from the masterfully proportioned and detailed lounge, with its double seating areas, gorgeous wooden arches and pleasant little patio flanking the dining room, which overlooks magnificent country landscapes and mountain ranges within easy reach of the charming, top-spec kitchen. The latter comes complete with a delightful terrace, which forms one of the features that give this beautiful, sophisticated home such heart and charm.
No matter which room you walk into, it is accompanied by wonderful sea, mountain and garden views, and venture out onto the covered terrace, the covered dining area or the bar – all of which flank a large swimming pool surrounded by immaculate lawns and landscaped greenery. It is this ability to harness the wonderful natural surroundings and create such special spaces that sets the home apart as a sophisticated residence that is also a supremely comfortable family home. In short, it is the sort of property you feel lucky to spend time in.
The south wing of the ground floor houses the master suite, with its main bedroom, beautiful marble bathroom with sunken bathtub, lounge and private office. The bedrooms upstairs continue the trend of style and quality that is enhanced by the restored wooden arches on the main floor, recreating the sense of intimacy and good taste that is felt throughout the villa. A knowing eye has created this property, for the proportions are always pleasing to the senses; the colour tones and materials chosen a pleasure to the eye.
The villa’s lower floor features a stylish bodega wine bar and tasting area, several private, independent suites, a multi-car garage and immaculate laundry and machine rooms, as well as a reading room that lends itself to a variety of uses, and a section of very private garden complete with a pond and magnificent coastal vistas.
