Villa España - Freehold

USD 1,700,000

Description

Rare opportunity! A designer freehold villa for sale in Legian.

This stunning villa was beautifully designed and furnished by the lovely Austrian owner who has lived and worked in Bali for twelve years. When designing the house, the owner had in mind the Spanish colonial house, with the customary patio at its heart. The building is constructed in a U-shape, which embrace the patio.

From without, the house looks – and is – compact, but within the design reveals a modern exploration of space. The curve of the “sunset bridge”  is an interesting contrast against the taller angularity of the house. At the entrance, the sound of gently cascading water teasingly beckons one to the patio and it is at this open area that one feels a strong sensation of having reached an oasis of peace and privacy.

The main feature of the patio is a long swimming pool made from green unpolished stone and flanked by bottle palm trees. Certainly, the feel in the airy living areas is one of comfort and ease, but the private niches, beautiful patio and quaint pavilion in the garden also hearken to the old Moorish legacy and have an Arabian Nights quality about them.

The T-shaped swimming pool – the main focus of the patio – is designed to face the West so that the beauty of the Balinese sunset can be fully enjoyed. Here at the heart of the house, the feeling of having arrived at a private oasis is enhanced by the choice of colors and natural materials. The color of the palm fronds is reflected in the green of the pool and the natural tones of pebbles, white ivory stone and pebble-wash white finish of the sunset bridge complement the warm Bangkirai wood in the flooring perfectly.

The master bedroom has the same feel of intimate seclusion as the lounge in the main house. Elegant mosquito nets softly frame the coconut wood bed, harmonizing with the rich wooden flooring. Two royal cili statues symbolizing Dewi Sri, goddess of rice and prosperity, silently stand watch.

The living room extends the sense of space and light that characterizes the house. Set on Palimanan stone floor, the furnishings include two rattan sofas with fitted cushioning and a glass-topped table crafted from an Irian Jaya canoe. On the latter, a white stone horse and rider carving from Sumba is displayed. Standing in conspicuous isolation at a corner of the dining room, along single-block teak dining table, with Timorese motifs along its sides, dominates the area. Its two supports are anchored by a long horizontal base – a modern touch.

Withe Palimanan stone floors and pebble wash finishing for the walls set the scene for the bathroom, which combines the comfort of traditional facilities with the pleasures of open-air bathing. Warm teak is used in the wash table, which is decorated with an inlaid shell motif, while soft lighting illuminates the functional wall niches fitted mirrors.
