In the Costa del Sol’s most enviable location we find this beautiful Istan villa with stunning panoramic sea and lake views. Perched high above the world famous Puerto Banus and yet just minutes by car to the glamorous marina, is the village of Cerros de Lago in which the gorgeous Istan villa is situated. If you are looking for stunning views and a privileged location then look no further.
Built at the top of the village this villa occupies the very best location, being part of the lovely community and yet with the highest and most private position. The plot sits on the apex of the hill and is designed to maximise the area on which it is built. Laid out with absolute attention to the surrounding panorama, every window from this stunning villa in Istan frames a view of unbelievable beauty. The villa is accessed from the rear with room for cars within the gated parking area. Open the large front doors and we enter a magnificent high-ceiling hallway with windows set high into the wall. Here is a well-lit stairway which features an imposing chandelier light. As you would expect, the eye is drawn straight through to the living area, a large room with massive stone fireplace and immense refectory table gives a grand dining and sitting area, and with the front wall fitted completely with floor to ceiling windows, your senses are immediately seduced by the stunning views over the woods and the lake of Istan. Outside of this room is a large covered terrace. From here just a few steps take us down to the private swimming pool which shimmers turquoise in contrast to the dark green of the forests. To the left we find a very well laid out covered bar and kitchen area. With thatched pergola protecting the main social area from sunshine and rain, there is no reason not to enjoy regular al fresco dining and social occasions whilst enjoying the views of the villa in Istan.
Back inside the house on this level is a wonderful kitchen perfectly designed for cooking, family time and socialising. With the very best in high-end appliances, there is nothing forgotten here, with the central cooking island situated so that light and views from the surrounding windows are once again highlighted. A bright red kitchen finish contrasts well with the wooden fitted units and tiled floors. Through the living area we come to two beautiful bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. These also enjoy the panoramic views that are the main feature of this stunning Istan villa. Downstairs there is plenty of space. From here you access the huge garage with space for several cars and this can be entered directly from the street outside. There is a large second living room and a brilliant games room with pool table, functioning drinks bar and social area. A further utility space is found here along with great storage rooms and other areas which can be adapted to suit the owner’s needs. A very generous bedroom and en suite bathroom is essentially a separate living area of it’s own and with access from this level could reasonably be such.
Upstairs again the fabulous sea and lake views from this Istan villa are what dominate. The master bedroom and bathroom both look out across the gardens and pool and over to the coast below. A complete wrap-around balcony provides private space for a more relaxed and tranquil sun experience.
The Costa del Sol has so much to offer with it’s thriving seaside communities, marinas and traditional town centres. With an international population living here, the infrastructure of the coast is ever-developing making it more and more attractive. This unique Istan villa is a home that will give you the very best of tranquillity and beauty in luxurious surroundings whilst just a few minutes drive will bring you to the bustling coast of Marbella.
