7 bedroom estate
Follow in the footsteps of Hollywood VIP's in this characterful 7-bedroomed estate above Marbella.
The timeless atmosphere of this 'private castle' once captivated owner Madeleine Carroll, and now plays host to the world's glitterati wanting a private escape with stunning views of the coast. 7 bedrooms sleeping 15 with staff on site providing a daily service.
A timelessly elegant villa with traditional Andaulcian features set in a unforgettable situation in Marbella. Surrounded by woodland, its exceptional grounds are landscaped for privacy and seclusion. The serenity of the orange tree filled central patio and stately steps leading to the pool area are design touches that are characteristic of a luxury Spanish villa.
Situated in seven thousand square metres of gardens overlooking the Mediterranean, the enviable location of this private residence is only the beginning of its story.
Hollywood Actress Madeleine Carroll was instantly captivated by this whitewashed estate nestled in the hills above Marbella. She fell in love with Andalucia, as did the villa’s subsequent owner, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Glenn Tipton.
Love and care have seen this stately country home transformed into a fabulous villa reminiscent of a private castle, full of airy spaces, six individually designed bedrooms and a separate casita for the caretakers.
The atmosphere inside is classically stylish, yet warm and welcoming. Old antiques are preserved as a nod to the villa’s past, such as the vintage typewriter that one can imagine being used to tap out old movie scripts in days gone by.
It’s hard to draw your eyes away from the magnificent panoramic views that illuminate almost every space with tall French doors and windows.
The living area, library and classic games corner are finished with sumptuous furnishings, perfect for quiet Summer afternoons or jovial Winter evenings around a huge roaring fire.
A balcony looks down over the gothic style dining space, with its antique stone fireplace, a chandelier and bespoke dining table with seating for 12.
The Andalucian style kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for preparation of delicious meals that can be taken indoors or out, and staff can be called upon to assist with the service of light snacks, laying the BBQ or serving breakfast on the terrace.
