A DUPLEX Apartment with separate Studio apartment below
Monte Halcones , Benahavis
We are proud to offer for sale an exceptional duplex, a property, arguably, affording some of the best views on the coast one could possibly have from a home of its kind.
This 4 bedroom DUPLEX apartment with beautiful private garden, is set in the most perfect position of the community. Nestled at the end of a cul- de -sac through an attractive square with fountain, is the entrance to the property.
A private gated entry onto a small attractive terrace with a rustic built-in water feature, leads to an attractive solid wooden door. On entering the property, a light square hallway, with an open- arch leading to:
The Dining room, which has the most spectacular views with triple aspect ‘floor to ceiling' windows. Whist seated at the dining table, the La Concha mountain with its surrounding countryside, feels like it can almost be touched. The south facing window offers the most stunning panoramic views across Marbella and surrounding areas to the sea. For winter evenings there is an attractive wall mounted marble heater.
A fully fitted substantial sized kitchen is set to the right of the entrance hall. A window to the east gives way to a private view of La Concha peak. All spaces have been well utilised within this room which includes a walk- in American style fridge freezer.
From the kitchen there is a large serving hatch out to a small hall way, leading to 3 bedrooms on the other side of the apartment. This is currently being made use of with ingenuity, as a mini bar.
There are 3 substantial bedroom suites on this level.
The Master Bedroom suite lies to the west of the apartment and has access to the terrace via patio doors, with afore mentioned views. Spacious and light, this room like all others, has a coved ceiling and fitted wardrobes. An en-suite shower room is home to twin sinks WC and bidet and has ample storage space throughout. It has a large wall mounted heated towel rail and inset ceiling lighting.
The 2nd Bedroom suite of substantial size, is currently used as rather luxurious study. This has its own en-suite bathroom, complete with wc and bidet. It has stunning views to the west and over the garden and private pool.
The 3rd bedroom suite is currently used as a reading room. Again, with an attractive coved ceiling, it has access to its own spacious en- suite bathroom with single vanity unit, wc and bidet.
A small hallway from the entrance hall, leads into the homely lounge, which has the ambience of being in a classic house. An attractive rectangular room, again offering spectacular south facing views across the Marbella countryside and out to the sea, are a main feature. And for those winter nights, an attractive open fireplace lays in waiting. Coved ceilings in all rooms are proof of the attention to detail that was made during the original design and build.
From the lounge, there sits a large delightful terrace which can only be described as an outside lounge. Floor to ceiling glass curtains make this an extremely, versatile room depending on the seasons. From this terrace there are the same spectacular views to the south and over to the west where, in clear weather, Gibraltar and Africa can be seen with ease. Here there is a dining table with seating areas to enjoy the stunning scenery which surrounds this lovely property.
From the terrace, steps lead to the pretty landscaped garden, where there is a Pagoda style covered area with seating and BBQ. A neatly designed garden houses a good sized private swimming pool, which is quite unexpected and a delightful surprise, for an apartment of this type. The garden is well cared for and laid to lawn around the pool with a variety of trees to include two majestic palms. A delightful and private area in which to relax or entertain.
STUDIO APARTMENT: From the garden level and directly under the property, there is a Studio Apartment with its own access. Unlike most annexes below the main property, this has the same delightful panoramic view as above, with windows extending the complete width of the lounge. There is a small galley style kitchen with sink and hob, and access to a well utilised large shower and laundry room. Here there is a shower, wc, washing machine and separate dryer.
At road level, there is a private garage with ‘up and over door' also access to extra parking.
