Mexican style contemporary villa in La Reserva, Sotogrande
Unique luxury Mexican style “Louis Barragan” mansion in the south of Spain, Sotogrande, Andalusia.
The concept of this mansion is inspired on the great Mexican architect Louis Barragan and the Californian architect Ricardo Legoretta, but effectively designed and fully decorated by “Femont-Galvan designers” from Marbella. The villa is set on a south facing plot with splendid views to the sea and the African border and surrounded by the famous 18 holes golf course “La Reserva de Sotogrande” and neighbouring the “Valderrama” championship golf course.
The outside blends perfectly with the inside, and the light and the shadows play like an artist canvas. The most dramatic part of this mansion is the spacious outdoor living area with glass roof and electric sculptured lattice shutters which play with ever changing quality of light/shade.
A massive entrance door gives the sense of proportion that is kept throughout this mansion. The ground floor comprises two wings and the main living areas with top range “Georgetti” furniture, the formal kitchen with top-of-the-line equipment and a stainless-steel wet kitchen, a walk-in freezer, larder room and a separate laundry room.
The upper floor consists of all the 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms each properly designed with refreshing ideas and little surprises. The east wing reserved for the master quarter consist of the bedroom with panoramic window to the sea, rising TV screen in front of the bed, ensuite bathroom with terrace and outside shower. The walk-in closet is custom designed with wood cabinets. The lower floor includes comprehensive housekeeping quarters, a 5 to 6 cars garage, a hobby room, cinema room, massage room, wine cellar, pool/bar room as well as a gym area with in/outside Jacuzzi and a “Klafs” sauna.
Bright walls accent the space on the terraces near the ”Koï “pond and the sun protected outside BBQ area which connects to a split level garden with fountain, the infinity swimming pool with stunning “SICCIS” mosaic, IPE wooden terrace and Mexican style hut.
