Superb, Moorish Villa in Salobreña with Alhambra-style Garden & Pool House, overlooking the sea.

Situated on a terraced hilltop affording unsurpassed views of the Mediterranean Sea and the coastline, this exquisite villa successfully combines Spanish country and traditional Moorish architecture. It is truly one of the most exclusive properties on the Costa Tropical. This twelve-room villa is ideally suited for family living and/or vacation. Designed to combine out- and indoor living, it offers an attractive variety of rooms, patios, loggias and living spaces.

The property has over 9000 square meters of terraced land overlooking the sea with many citrus, avocado and fig trees, lush natural foliage, palms and brilliant bougainvillea, pounds, arched courtyard and a large pool. The gardens feature Moorish mosaic fountains, walkways and sitting areas just like La Alhambra in Granada.

Constructed in 1969 with well-known architects and artists and the best material of that epoch. This 12-room villa of 674 m2 in total, is built on two levels amid terraces, central courtyard with fountains, exceptional tile-work throughout, beamed ceilings, arched doorways, loggias, and surrounding decorative stone-paved pathways. The villa is built symmetrical and the courtyard, plus the east and west terraces connect every room to the exterior.

On the main level of the villa (310 m2), the lush, tiled patio with a central, star-shaped fountain opens onto the spectacular entrance hall with fireplace and double height ceilings. The living room features 5 sets of French doors opening to the terraces and gardens. The dining room – previously a covered porch – situated on the right side of the living room, has terracotta tile floors and a beamed, hand painted ceiling. Next to the dining area, you will find the traditional, vintage kitchen of the seventies which is large and fully equipped with a pantry and a wine cellar. The rooms previously used as staff bedrooms, are currently used as a laundry room and guest bedroom with bathroom. On the other side of the living room, there is a cozy study room, 2 double ensuite bedrooms with their own bathrooms and French doors opening onto the terraces, and a guest bathroom in the corridor. Also on this side of the living, there is a pleasant covered porch with beamed ceiling, just like the dining room. Next to the patio at the entrance of the villa, there is a “summer dining room” with barbecue, principally used as games and billiard room.

A decorative, hand painted staircase in the entrance hall takes you up to the upper level of the villa (156 m2). Here you find the master bedroom and 2 double bedrooms. The master bedroom opens onto a large, rooftop terrace with incredible views to the Mediterranean. The second bedroom has unique, hand painted wallpaper. There are 2 bathrooms, a dressing room, a French balcony, and two enclosed terraces overlooking the coastline, gardens and pool.

On the lowest level of the villa (166 m2), which can be accessed via the exterior, with the stairs from the entrance hall or with the elevator situated next to the kitchen, you will find the bodega (cellar), technical room, and what is currently used as the service accommodation. The accommodation has its own access and consists of a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. Previously, this space was designated as the garage and laundry room. The service accommodation could serve as a guest accommodation as well. On the driveway, there is a separate double garage for 2 big cars and additionally, there is a carport with space for several cars.

The gardens, with mature palm trees and cypresses, feature romantic mosaic walkways amongst lush foliage and flowers, and include a 14.5-meter by 5.5-meter swimming pool with a complete pool house (42 m2) containing a bar and barbecue, a covered terrace with a fireplace, and 2 complete dressing rooms with bathrooms, which could be used – and are actually used – as additional bedrooms.

This villa is a superb residence, ideally located on the unspoiled part of the Costa Tropical on the hillside of Salobreña. Thea area features beaches, restaurants and shopping, and nearby golf, tennis and (exclusive) yacht clubs in Marina del Este and Motril, and in the near future also in Almuñécar.

This spectacular Moorish villa can accommodate up to 14 people. The villa has 6 double bedrooms in the main house (3 on each floor) and 2 bedrooms in the guest accommodation, plus 2 rooms in the pool house that could serve as 2 bedrooms as well.

In case the new owners would like to, the option exists to divide this 9000 m2 plot into 2 individual plots. There is already a second pedestrian entrance on the lowest level of the garden and this area could easily be separated from the main plot and be used to construct another villa.
