A Romantic Luxury Estate in Benahavis, Spain
Located just a few miles from the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Benahavis, Spain is a charming, mountain village. Like many towns in this region of Spain, Benahavis’ original residents were the Moors. Nods to its Arab heritage can be found throughout the town. Most notable are the ruins of Montemayor, an 11th century castle sitting atop a mountain that has some of the best views of the sea. Today, nearly one thousand years beyond its Moorish rule, Benahavis is a favorite of expatriates, thanks to its quaint atmosphere and abundance of boutiques, golf courses, and fine restaurants. And it is on the outskirts of this engaging town that we find this luxury estate.
A Hillside Luxury Estate
This regal dream home is one of a handful of luxury properties on Calle Ojén. Its south-facing, hillside perch allows for beautiful ocean and village views. The home itself is a magnificent example of the luxury Mediterranean style of architecture with its terra cotta-colored façade, arched windows, and metal elements. Lush greenery and stone surround the dream home providing privacy for homeowners.
And the grounds of this luxury estate offer more than seclusion. Built in a U-shape, the mansion surrounds the large patio that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Trees and a stone embankment enclose the tennis court. But the most eye-catching feature on the 1.25 acre parcel is the sparkling outdoor pool. Reflecting the blue of the coastal sky, a bright sun mosaic adorns the pool and beckons swimmers.
Spacious Luxury Living
Gleaming floors, a neutral color palette, and an abundance of natural light fill the three levels of this 16,404 square foot Benahavis home. The main floor of the mansion features a living room, TV room, dining room, three guest bedrooms with en suites, and the kitchen. The modern kitchen is a sleek SieMatic design with Neff appliances. This floor of the home accesses the patio, terrace, and outdoor pool.
On the upper floor, homeowners can enjoy the master retreat, complete with en suite, salon, and fireplace. Two additional bedrooms with en suites round out the upstairs. The garden level also has two guest quarters with en suites as well as a staff apartment. The laundry room, a second kitchen, home theater, game room, fitness room, sauna, steam room, and indoor saltwater pool are also located on this lower floor. Despite the wealth of amenities on this level, it also offers ample storage.
Notably, in addition to its 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, this Benahavis home has high ceilings, an elevator, air conditioning, and under floor heat. It also has solar power to help reduce its carbon footprint.
A Prestigious Golfing Community
This luxury estate lies within Los Arqueros Golf Resort. This exclusive community is home to the first golf course designed by world-famous Spanish golfer Severiano Ballesteros. The rolling course is challenging and ranks within the top 100 courses in Spain. In addition to the course, golfers can take part in the Golf Academy, private lessons, and clinics. The professionals also offer on-course support to improve your game. Have a little Tiger Woods on your hands? Los Arqueros has a special children’s golf class every summer!
As expected this luxury golf community also benefits from a restaurant. The perfect Hole 19, this cozy venue has a diverse international menu and beautiful outdoor seating.
