The architect Melvin Villarroel signs this villa on the Costa del Sol
The house is one of the legacies of award-winning Bolivian architect Melvin Villarroel, whose designs have had a profound influence on houses and hotels throughout the Costa del Sol. A defender of the architecture of emptiness, he believed that architectural space does not end with the envelope of the building. The villa, built in 2007, is located in the heart of Guadalmina Baja, one of the most sought-after residential areas on this coast. It is in San Pedro Alcántara, belonging to the municipality of Marbella, a few steps from the Guadalmina hotel and very close to the beach. Natural light floods the interior of the villa, which has a home automation and alarm system. It consists of five bedrooms with bathroom, dining room and kitchen equipped with appliances and breakfast bar.
The master bedroom has a dressing room, living room and terrace. Of the main living room, the ceilings with wooden beams, the fireplace and another terrace facing south stand out. The basement includes a games room, cinema, gym, sauna, separate guest or staff quarters and parking. In the tropical garden all eyes are directed to the pool with gazebo and the barbecue area. A path leads to the patio, which has another parking space.
