On the southern Spanish coast, just outside of the picturesque village of Benahavís, there sits the villa of your dreams. A private estate, El Cipres was built from stone and wood — and its top-of-the-line architecture combines modern aesthetics with innovative technologies.
Just imagine strolling out across your 8,000 square metres of land with your morning Café Manchado, taking in panoramic coastal views that stretch out across the Mediterranean towards Gibraltar and the African Atlas Mountains.
An elegant driveway leads you up to the villa, through the lush Mediterranean gardens and water features. And, when you park up and make your way into the entranceway, you’ll be greeted by a dramatic foyer boasting soaring ceilings and a fireplace.
Further inside the Tobal Arquitectos-designed property, thoughtfully planned spaces include large open plan living areas, staff accommodation, and an interior pool with stunning mountain views. To stay in shape, you can enjoy the use of a gymnasium, sauna and steam room — and, in warmer months, head out to the exterior pool and al fresco entertaining areas.
Other amenities include a cloakroom, a guest toilet, a fully fitted kitchen with dining area, wrap around terraces with sea views and walls of windows. In the eastern wing alone, there are four bedrooms — affording you enough space to entertain. There’s even a guest apartment with private kitchenette and separate entrance.
The villa is also hugely energy efficient — with underfloor heating flooding the marble and high quality stone flooring with retained warmth. Solar panels, too, power much of the house.
But the most impressive feature of this property is surely what you get included in the €13.9m asking price. 24-hour security and maintenance of your private gated estate comes with that hefty price tag, as does access to the La Zagaleta Golf & Country Club.
Along with this comes access to a variety of sporting facilities as well as helipad, equestrian centre, two 18-hole golf courses, and red carpet services such as helicopter transfers. Coupled with those views, what more could you possibly want?
