A rare opportunity to purchase a private landmark property on an expansive plot of over 5,000 m2 in the heart of the prestigious Marbella Club Golf Resort. The 12 Century Moorish fort in the mountain behind the golf course, inspired the owner to build this home in the Morisco style but with all modern accouterments. This avant-garde home is immersed in nature itself, being set in a ‘birds view’ position and giving wonderful 360 degree views surrounded by the golf course, mountains behind and sea. This palatial property was originally built in 2008 with carefully selected materials, handcrafted by carpenters, metal forgers and tile-maker artisans from the Alpujarras at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains. As soon as you enter the sweeping cobbled driveway the impressive features of this property are clearly evident. The main entrance door leads immediately to a truly breath-taking Moorish-style atrium with handcrafted Alhambra plaster arches, overlooking a basement fountain. The automated sliding glass roof of the atrium allows all to enjoy a cool breeze drawn in and over the inside-outside pool. Built over 3 levels, each floor provides bright and spacious rooms and of course in addition the full length atrium is swathed in the Mediterranean sunlight. The ground floor has a particularly lovely living room with a double height bareled ceiling, scored with an emerald green Indian marble floor, a grand statement fireplace and floor to ceiling windows which let the light stream in and open onto the full length and partly covered terrace with its stunning golf and sea views. To one side of this room is an elegant study. The bespoke kitchen and adjoining family room give onto the outside dining area with a built in vented barbecue. The family cloakroom and 2 guest cloakrooms facilitate generous entertaining in this fully interconnected ground floor. Informal dining is facilitated with both table and counter seating in the kitchen which connects directly to the formal dining room. On the first floor there are 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms all with breath taking views from their private terraces. There is also a large roof terrace with a covered kitchenette and dining area which offers incredible 360-degree panoramic views. The lower level of this home is all about entertainment and relaxation. The large indoor-outdoor heated infinity pool is surrounded with luxurious Travertine marble and has an electrically operated solar panel pool cover. Owners and their guests will also enjoy a gym, cinema room, games room and adjoining shower-changing room. There are 2 completely independent guest, or staff apartments with separate access via a sunken courtyard with fountain. There is a generous double garage at the lower level with direct access to the house and a 2-vehicle covered carport at ground floor level, again with direct access to the ground floor. There is a 4 person lift from basement to roof, but the semi-circular stairwell with amber-tinted, star windows and cascading, antique lanterns may tempt you to exercise and enjoy the vista across the atrium. Other special features include: direct buggy access onto the golf course, grey water/rain recovery system with 2 x 2000 litre underground tanks for garden watering and 3000-litre freshwater storage tanks, complete domotics system for lighting, heating and air-conditioning, under-floor heating and a fully zoned security alarm with camera system. The Marbella Club Golf Resort is a ‘next to nature’ gated residential resort, with 24-hr security,18 hole golf course, an exclusive equestrian centre and a Balinese inspired clubhouse serving excellent cuisine. Within a 20-minute drive you are in Marbella. This is a statement but family dwelling. Always an experience, never dull or boring.
