Party pad or chill out zone? Or both? Whether it’s dancing with friends on the rooftop terrace, chilling in the bar lounge, relaxing while taking in the view of the Sierra Blancas or whittling away a leisurely afternoon in the pool, Villa Rosas can accommodate it all. And it can do it year round since Spain’s Costa del Sol has famously good weather whatever the season. Surrounded by fabulous golf courses, if that’s your thing, and a short hop to the beach, there’s also plenty to do off the property as well.
The 0.3-acre plot is on the large size for the area, and the ample villa measures in at a generous 9,000 square feet with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Both inside and out, everything is done to high standard, making for a carefree lifestyle wrapped in five-star boutique-hotel-style luxury. Represented by Solvilla in Spain, the asking price for Villa Rosas is about $5.8 million.
Vacations in southern Spain are all about soaking up the sun and this property has plenty of options for that. Mature tropical gardens soften the white-stucco exterior, while stone patios that surround the pool, with its integrated sun beds, offer a number of outdoor dining and chill-out zones. With its gorgeous views, the roof terrace might be the best part of the house; It boasts an outdoor kitchen, a dining area, an outdoor fireplace, and — best of all! — a bubbling spa encircled by a ribbon of light.
The house is done in a pretty typical, snazzily contemporary international-rich-folks-go-on-vacation taste with huge windows, dark wood floors, a jazzy lighting program, contemporary fireplaces and, basically, clean lines everywhere. The kitchen sports a large island with marble counters that waterfall off the ends, plus an extension for in-kitchen dining. The main-floor master suite benefits from direct access to the swimming pool area, while the tub, surrounded by glass panels, makes for a cozy, if not particularly private indulgence. Four more bedrooms are all en suite and all offer serene views over the pool or the gardens.
On the lower level are the entertaining and wellness areas. After a work-out in the gym and a spin through the steam shower or sauna, catch up with friends at the cocktail bar and then enjoy a movie in the TV lounge. After that, repair to the roof deck for more cocktails, snacks and a skinny dip in the jacuzzi. And with all that, the property is just minutes to the city center, including fabulous shopping, cultural amenities, and amazing restaurants.
Party? Chill out? Both.
