Villa in La Zagaleta, Benahavis
Beautiful classic Italian-style frontline golf villa in the privileged La Zagaleta Golf and Country Club in Benahavís. Situated on one of the better plots in the estate it offers open golf and sea views to Gibraltar and Africa. Southwest facing, it enjoys all day sun and spectacular sunsets.
The house is all on one level with the master suite and one guest suite in the main house, plus two individual pavilions with three large guest suites and a staff cottage, the basement is dedicated to the garages, laundry and storage areas.
The home has a stunning entrance via landscaped gardens with water fountains, with a grand courtyard and parking area for several cars.
The Entrance hall leads to the large living room, and onto the formal dining room and to the exterior terraces. From the hall, we have a guest cloakroom and one double bedroom suite.
The kitchen is a large open plan family Clive Christian kitchen with a central island and informal tv sitting and dining areas.
The family wing has a covered Conservatory, TV room, a library and an office that leads to the grand master suite which has sitting areas, dressing rooms, and a bathroom.
All the living and kitchen areas lead directly to the beautiful covered and open Terraces with several sitting, dining and relaxing areas. Summer kitchen and sit up bar and BBQ make this one of the best areas of the house.
One of the outstanding features of this property are the gardens and orchards – it has extensive gardens with water fountains and ponds and has many fruit and avocado trees for the “good” life and has a kitchen garden that provides a continuous supply of organic vegetables and fruit.
The house has a previous project to add a floor and has not utilised the available building volume of 15% in Benahavís so it has great potential to be upgraded to an amazing home in the best location.
