Located in one of Europe’s most exclusive residential estates, Heaven 11 is a stunning villa extending over 2,000 square metres of built area on an exquisitely landscaped plot. The property is, in fact, one of the select few to sit on La Zagaleta’s highly desirable “top ridge”, thus affording magnificent panoramic views over the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and northern Africa.
The use of high ceilings, huge windows, clean lines, open spaces and contemporary design, combined with the finest materials and the villa’s elevated position, enables its occupants to “feel” the breathtaking views and be embraced by the naturally lit spaces – which extend seamlessly onto the terraces to provide a fully open indoor-outdoor living area. Modern and clean architectural lines further enhance this sense of timeless space, relaxation and calm.
The home has been designed to highlight the amplitude and lightness of the interior architecture structures. Everything can be appreciated as a whole, with no visual barriers and well-differentiated details outlining the rooms and doors and revealing the beauty of the views and garden.
The dining room is a bright and contemporary space, a natural extension to the living area that provides wonderful views over the coast in what truly is a memorable daily dining experience.
The state-of-the-art 55 square metre kitchen, fully equipped with the latest domotic home automation, is accessed from the living area and structured around the cooking area – which provides even more of a sensation of light and space. Directly in front of the kitchen, the dining-living room is furnished with ultra-comfortable sofas and chairs as well as an outside dining table – all undercover to provide protection from the sun.
The master bedroom extends over 33,25 square metres, with an en suite bathroom and dressing room, and sea and mountain views. The master bathroom is both spacious and refreshingly contemporary, with a double-ended bath, double sinks and a large walk-in double shower. Clean lines, contrasting stainless steel, the finest marble, hand-carved stone, and floor-to-ceiling windows combine to create a bathroom that helps get the day off to the best start possible.
There are also covered and open terraces outside all the bedrooms, the dining room, the kitchen, the ground floor bar and the entertainment areas.
An indoor pool features a raised infinity design, and an interior bar is the focal point of the entertainment and leisure area. Located next to the indoor pool is a state-of-the-art 75 square metre fitness centre equipped with a range of premier aerobics machines and free-weights, plus an exercise floor for dance, yoga, pilates, stretching and other exercises. Designed by a leading fitness expert, this area can easily be customised to suit specific requirements and preferences.
One of the most technologically advanced rooms within the villa is the sound and light room. The special shape and ceiling of the room has been designed to provide superior acoustics, ideal for friends and family to watch sporting events or movies. The room is also professionally sound-proofed and designed for use with either the latest super-sized 4k Ultra HD LCD TVs or cinema quality HD projectors.
A private wine cellar – placed midway between the ground and first floors – doubles as a place to store and maintain valuable wines as well as a visually attractive feature with its glass sides.
Another highlight of the villa is its parking facilities, with a dual entrance on the ground and first floors with ample space to house six cars. In addition, there is space for five more cars in front of the main entrance, plus four in a car port at the side of the villa.
Landscaping is an integral part of the whole design process. Heaven 11’s garden is a haven for peace and contemplation, and at the same time a space to enjoy the outdoors – a cosy area full of expressiveness and subtlety. The use of continuous green masses gives the garden an almost sculptural character, as if it were created of a single piece, in perfect union with the villa’s architecture – a garden with soul and a true oasis.
The latest home automation system will be used, programmed to the owner’s special tastes. It will be easy to use and will work both remotely and through an iPhone, iPad, Android or remote device. It will connect such home features as lighting, heating, air-conditioning, music, blinds and entrance gates – thus quickly connecting multiple areas of the villa.
Heaven 11 is currently under construction and is available for sale.
