The Main Residence
Imposing entrance and exit gates which are linked through a U shaped driveway. A colourful wind mobile designed by Manrique sits proudly at the entrance.
The main residence totals approximately 850 sq. metres (9,150 sq. feet). There are four en-suite bedrooms (2 doubles, 2 singles). The master bathroom provides for a jacuzzi and separate shower, while two bathrooms, including the master bathroom, offer a tropical garden. The living room/dining area encompasses 90 sq. metres (970 sq. feet) and has a lava fire place. In addition, the residence has a study, a state-of-the-art Italian kitchen, a pantry and a recreation room. The house is wired for stereo sound, the study has high speed internet & fax access and the recreation area offers a pool table and cinema dolby surround system. A huge covered terrace area is accessed from the living room, the master bedroom and the kitchen. A true swimmers delight is found with the 10 x 5 metre (32 x 16 feet) heated swimming pool. Additional amenities include a pool bathroom, barbeque grill, table tennis, outdoor dining & seating areas as well as sunloungers.
The property also provides for an attached staff apartment.
The interior design of the house successfully combines the contemporary with the classical. For example, original floor tiles from an Italian church sit comfortably with a modern timber ceiling with sky lights, or the state-of-the-art Italian kitchen is contained within original lava walls and possesses amazing stone arches across the entire ceiling, and traditional terracotta floors blend with modern recessed or suspended lighting.
Externally there is a double garage, two double carports and two detached guest houses with striking artistic features.
The property features two guest houses that have been converted from unearthed 150 year old water storage tanks and provide for 150m² of living space. Its spectacular stone roof arches and a lava grotto remain intact. The guest houses exemplify the unique use of volcanic rock, which personifies the natural environment of the Island. Each guest house forms a separate and completely self-contained unit with its own terrace space and is equipped with the latest modern conveniences.
Guest house 1 provides for two double bedrooms and an alcove capable of sleeping two extra persons. The main bedroom has a shower en-suite with tropical garden. Another bathroom has full suite.
Guest house 2 has one double bedroom with separate shower room. From its living area one looks onto a tropical garden amidst an original lava grotto.
Each house is furnished with style and flair and provides for a living room, including TV, DVD player and Hi-Fi unit, dining area and a small open plan kitchenette.
The guest houses also exhibit the influence of the late artist Cesar Manrique, in particular the use of natural lava and interesting combinations of colour. The eclectic mix of natural materials and antique Canarian furniture have been combined with quirky modern artwork and unique touches such as tiles from an ancient Italian church.
Both guest houses share a large cactus garden and each has its own terrace space with patio teak furniture, sunloungers and king-size parasol. The garden and terrace are reminiscent of a giant grotto as both have been carved out of the volcanic rock and are surrounded by walled lava terraces. Each terrace has been planted with tropical palms creating a lovely backdrop to the pool and garden. The circular shaped heated swimming pool features a waterfall. The unusual design forms a sheltered sun trap, which is totally secluded and unoverlooked. Other facilities include a barbeque grill and poolside shower.
