Full Description

Villa Aurora is a beautiful energy efficient home designed for Mediterranean living. It is currently available to buy off plan. It is located in the prestigious up-market residential area of El Madroñal, a gated community, on the doorstep of Marbella.

Surrounded by nature, the sweeping views across Marbella and the Mediterranean, face South East.

The thoughtful design is modern and designed for comfortable living. It is a contemporary lifestyle villa. There is extensive use of natural materials and texture. High quality finishes are specified throughout.

A key feature is the roof terrace, accessible by lift from all floors, where there is a pergola for deep shade, an outside kitchen, and a Jacuzzi so you can enjoy the fabulous views out to sea, close to the pine trees and enjoy a cool drink in the shade.

An infinity pool reflects the colours of the sky and the sea and “drops into” the Mediterranean

The design is by Eco Vida Homes who have a reputation for impeccable client service and who are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in London. Eco Vida Homes help people build villas in southern Spain and in this case their client has decided to sell the villa off plan. Work begins on site in the summer of 2018 and if it doesn’t sell off plan it will be available to buy as built. The details are available on the Eco Vida Homes website.

The home will be carbon zero with an air source heat pump providing power to the underfloor heating and cooling system and powered by a photovoltaic array and a Tesla Powerwall battery. The villa is on grid so there are no problems with hot water with the sudden arrival of many guests.

The villa is embraced by the ancient oak tree and the pines trees that have been on the site for hundreds of years. In the early morning you can hear the sounds of the trees and smell the pine. From its nest the house looks out to the Mediterranean in the distance. In the evening scented plants perfume the air. The views are fabulous.

The building is orientated South East for the best views and to keep it cool in the summer.

Aurora is the Goddess of dawn in Roman mythology, an entirely appropriate name given the orientation facing South East.

As you sit in the heart of the house looking out you will see the colours of the sky and the sea reflected in the infinity pool in front of the Mediterranean.

An open plan kitchen / living room, beside a glass wall that opens up to the terrace, provides a place for friends and family to gather round. When the glass wall is folded back the terrace and the open plan living become one space. Even when closed in the winter the inside feels connected to the terrace and the pool the views and the trees.

Three of the four upper floor bedrooms, including the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and private dressing room, face the sea views and have an outside terrace.

There are two rooms on the ground floor for a study or library or extra bedroom.
In the basement are two rooms for a gym, cinema, or party room (or all three) as well as an machinery room.

Natural stone softens the clean white exterior. The interior is deftly fitted out in natural wood, stone and stucco. We are aiming for timeless good taste.

On the roof, accessible by a lift, is a pergola, outside kitchen, Jacuzzi, and some of the best views on the coast. You can almost touch the pine trees around you.

This is where you sit in the shade in a comfortable chair in front of the view and enjoy a cool drink.

Energy efficiency comes as standard with Eco Vida Homes: extra insulation, cavity walls, e-coated windows. An air source heat pump provides heating in winter and cooling in summer and hot water for kitchen and bathroom. Photovoltaic panels provide the energy, a gift from nature.
