Ibiza living: Altavista – The view from the top
Set on the very highest plot of land in Ibiza’s most exclusive south coast secure urbanisation, Vista Alegre, new luxury property development Altavista presides over 2,286.26 metres squared of lush, green land and boasts uninterrupted views across the Mediterranean Sea. Developed by The Prestige Properties Group – a real estate developer with over 30 years of experience in established markets such as Verbier, Miami, Dubai, Mauritius and St Tropez – it is set to become a one-of-a-kind property here in Ibiza.
Altavista is an estate comprised of an enormous main villa and large guesthouse, with ten spacious bedroom suites (over 40m2 each), an internal lift, multiple dining spaces, four swimming pools, two roof terraces, each featuring a Jacuzzi, a professional grade kitchen, spa-like bathrooms, a home cinema, a direct private access to the beach Es Torrent, two separate entrances and a two-level garage big enough for 10 vehicles, complete with a car elevator. But that’s just the stats – let us give you a guided tour.
The actual property is 2286 metres squared – one of the last remaining new developments in Ibiza with a license to build a private residence to 1016 metres squared. Recent laws passed in Ibiza now prohibit new properties to be built over 300m2, making Altavista completely unique to the 2017 market. Not only that – it’s also built one of the few last remaining vacant plot of land in the secure Vista Alegre urbanisation (which just so happens to be the highest), adding another element of desirability.
The views are simply breathtaking, with nothing but blue skies and the azure Mediterranean Sea as far as the eye can see. Water has played a big part in the inspiration for the design of Altavista, with four swimming pools perfectly placed to be reflected in the reflective glass of the villa’s façade, meaning whether you are looking from above or below, you get the feeling of being completely enveloped in the big blue. The pools are set directly in front of both the main house and guesthouse, with a separate children’s pool below the main surrounded by sand and palm trees for a tropical oasis effect.
Every bedroom in the villa is designed to take advantage of the spectacular views and features direct access to the swimming pools. Sunbathe on your own terrace, or take your pick between the glamorous roof terraces and man-made beach options. Alfresco dining is a must, with a variety of entertaining areas ideal for sun-drenched breakfasts, lazy lunches, sunset cocktails and decadent dinners beneath the stars.
By night, Atavista is every bit as spectacular as it is in Ibiza’s glorious sunshine, as each area is illuminated with elegant soft lighting – from the swimming pools, landscaped gardens and gorgeous terraces to the stylish interiors and roof terraces. It’s easy to imagine long summer days seguing into sultry nights – when home is this glamorous, it could be hard to leave the property, even when Ibiza’s famous nightlife beckons…
An exceptional example of contemporary Mediterranean architecture – designed by DOMO DESIGN Miami – Altavista is the very epitome of luxury Ibiza living. The highest quality finishes are featured throughout the estate, which will also be equipped with the world’s best brands when it comes to mod cons closer to completion. Just ten minutes from the airport and a short drive to the island’s most iconic beaches and hippest restaurants and beach clubs, Altavista is both convenient and an extremely private hideaway for its owners.
Nothing exists like this on the market, and due to the new development laws, it is assured that nothing like this will ever come onto the market again. Here in Ibiza, experienced luxury estate agent Martin Chedler (visit http://www.martinchedler.com/ or email [email protected] for more information) represents The Prestige Properties Group (www.theprestigeproperties.com) and the Altavista development. Work began on the property around 12 months ago and it is expected to be complete in June 2018. Until then, it remains an incredible work in progress.
