Villa Mariposa is located in the most desirable part of Sotogrande Costa, offering plenty of space for extended families and staff – with all the modern conveniences of a luxury estate. The owners have just completed extensive renovations, including a brand new gourmet kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, new mosaic tiled swimming pool, sophisticated home cinema, and decoratively painted walls.
You arrive to this magnificent property through a silver gate, which opens to a long private drive leading to the villa. Next to the gate you pass by the guest house, which can also be used for a guard or staff and it also has its own private parking.
You enter the villa through a traditional Andalusian courtyard, adorned with orange trees and the fresh smell of roses. The grand entrance greets you with decorative Moroccan vases and a large wooden door with wrought iron features and glass inserts to allow the light into the house while giving us a glimpse of the courtyard from within. As you step inside the foyer, you are met by an elegant staircase, vaulted ceilings and a view to the magical garden through the welcoming living room with fireplace.
The living room, dining room and kitchen all offer an open concept where the energy simply flows from one room to the next, combining elegance, grace and the comfort of feeling right at home. All three rooms grant direct access to the incredible gardens, outdoor sitting areas and swimming pool. The garden offers complete privacy and makes you feel like you’re on holidays on a tropical island, overlooking the crystal clear waters.
Every inch of the stylish kitchen was designed and built by the famous designer/carpenter Zoltan Banki. The appliances are all top-of-the-line and the owners worked hard to design a kitchen which is the heart of the home, the meeting place for the whole family. Behind the kitchen we find an additional service kitchen with plenty of storage space and a large pantry/wine cellar, which is kept cool all year long.
Unlike in most houses, the cinema is not hidden away in the basement but is an important part of the living quarters, found conveniently just a few steps from the kitchen. Comes in very handy when you want a drink or a quick snack.
Next to the cinema we find a modern office with a full bathroom, with views over the courtyard. This room could also be used as an additional bedroom.
Past the living room we find a door dividing 2 guest apartments (one can be accessed from outside as well) and another bedroom, which is currently used as a Spa Room with a sauna and solarium.
As you reach the 1st floor of the villa through the imposing staircase you can’t help but gaze at the enormous silver chandelier ornamenting the entrance hall. Upstairs we find three further bedrooms, four bathrooms and a large office, which can serve as a 4th bedroom on this level. The current layout consists of two very large Master Suites, with large bathrooms and endless closet space. One of the bedrooms actually boasts three separate walk-in closets. Every woman’s dream! Each bedroom has direct access to the large, sunny terraces, which overlook the pool and the impeccably landscaped garden.
Some further features of this property consist of a two car garage, another guest apartment above the garage, two carports, large gym, a laundry room (discreetly placed away from the villa in a separate building), incredible BBQ area, which is perfect for entertaining, several shaded and sunny lounging areas and dining and sitting options, which can easily accommodate large parties. The property has a security system and cameras have been installed all over the property as additional security.
