Designed and built by ARK Architects, the location of The Hill is unique and only 1.5 km from the sea.

In addition to sea views from the basement, ground floor and first floor, the rooftop chill-out area is an explosion of unique views.

An architecture that seeks to live in nature, with a style between modern and classic. The owner did not want a very modern villa but he wanted something unique with unique materials, such as natural stone in particular formats.

This architecture which combines white with the skin of Travertine marble manages to be unique with panoramic views of Marbella, Sierra Nevada, Africa, Gibraltar and the Mediterranean Sea.

The villa plays with its surroundings with a garden of cork oak trees that embrace the project and merge into different interior gardens. From any point of the villa, the garden has a relevant presence. Playing with olive and cork oak trees, the space is experienced in a different way.

The infinity pool sought a light blue colour typical of the Carib.

An architectural project that is designed to enjoy a different lifestyle, in addition to the nine en-suite bedrooms, the project has a spa with an indoor pool, gym connected to the garden, massage room, sauna, steam room, relaxation area, jacuzzi overlooking the garden and spa bar.

Adding to the fun and enjoyment is a personalized wine cellar, garage with car show area, cinema room, and a private guest flat.

On the ground floor, a double-height lounge dominates the space reaching 7 meters in height. In a Mediterranean lifestyle, the kitchen takes a leading role connected with dining rooms and a private TV area as well as a kitchen area for service staff.

When you move out onto the terrace, the barbecue area, outdoor kitchen and cocktail bar is the ideal place while enjoying the pool.

The visual connection, the luminosity, the garden, the light and the textures of the materials are part of the identity of the Villa.

Of course, it is a sustainable home with aero-electric energy, solar panels, underfloor heating and 100% automation with home automation.
