Monumental frontline beach mansion is perfectly appointed on New Golden Mile, Estepona

This incredible piece of real estate sits majestically in a frontline beach position in the much heralded New Golden Mile of Estepona. Elegant, striking and quite frankly sensational, this mansion will take your breath away from the minute you enter. The double height entrance hall, spectacularly designed with wooden beams, pulls you in and draws you gaze upwards towards the vaulted ceiling and the exquisite artwork that dresses the walls, complementing the colossal chandelier that takes centre stage. A dual staircase gently curves its way up to the first floor. The hallway pulls you through towards the beachside of the property and down a few steps into one of two elegant living rooms. This first one, itself showcasing sleek wooden beams along the ceiling is a delight, incredibly illuminated by terrace doors opening out onto the covered terrace that runs the length of this part of the residence. Further swathes of natural light flood in through elegant arched windows. A second living room is on one side, on a slightly high-level, creating an eye catching addition for entertaining guests in. On the other side of the living room is a chic and imposing dining room which also boasts access to the terrace by way of terrace doors. The dining room is bright and airy and hosts a superb 8 seat dining table in the centre, perfect for hosting dinner parties. The kitchen is a sleek work of art, with a sublime vaulted ceiling that towers overhead. With a neat island unit in the centre, the kitchen work tops and cupboards are graceful and emit a certain flair, chic in crisp white to marry up with the clean whiteness of the room, creating an expanse of space all over. Also on the ground floor are two incredible bedrooms, all encompassing and sumptuous, boasting ensuite bathrooms dressed in finest marble and offering walk in showers and bathtubs. The perfectly manicured grounds open up on the other side of the bedroom terrace doors to allow guests to stroll out in a morning to enjoy the fresh sea air. There is also a pantry on the ground floor along with a guest bathroom and a fully equipped laundry room. On the first floor the sublime staircases meet at the top to reveal the immense vaulted ceiling framed with ubiquitous windows, where natural sunlight streams in and through which fronds of the palm trees add a shot of colour. The upper walkway draws you along and into each room on this floor, the showstopper being the master bedroom. This room has been designed as a haven of tranquility, with its vaulted ceiling decorated with whitewashed wooden beams and a mezzanine that could serve as a library. There are two separate dressing rooms and an out of this world seating area surrounded by balcony windows, revealing the unworldly panoramic views of the Mediterranean that literally sits at the end of the garden. A very private ensuite bathroom is captivating as it boasts a bathtub, walk in shower, a double sink and vanity unit and is finely dressed with a combination of clay and wood flooring. The appeal is exquisite. Further along on this floor there are 5 further double bedrooms, all furnished with an aristocratic flair and beautifully lit through balcony doors. There are a further 4 bathrooms, all with double sinks and vanity units and these are kept company by a guest toilet nearby. The property also plays host to an immense basement of 600 m2, expansive enough to offer housing for at least 10 cars. There is also a service bedroom and bathroom and, set back, two large water tanks. The exterior is protected and shielded by aluminium and includes double glazing and electric shutters for added security. Last but not least, the manicured gardens that surround the property are mature, beautifully maintained and a sheer delight to walk around. A myriad of colors springs forth from every corner, bringing bursts of floral delights at every turn. The swimming pool is Caribbean blue, matched by the plush mattresses on the sun loungers that languish around, and just on the other side of the hedgerows the beach stretches out for miles, kissed by the Mediterranean Sea. This is not just a property nor is it just a residence: this is a mansion of boundless proportions, looming overhead and enveloping you in its entirety. To own this magnificent property would be the crowning glory of any discerning property buyers portfolio. Don’t leave this one out! Once visited you’ll never want to leave….
