Exceptional Villa on the beach
200 m² - Pozzallo (rg), 97016
The villa overlooks the cliff that precedes the long sandy beach of Maganuco, right on the border between Pozzallo and Modica. It is an old rural building that has been renovated with care and attention to details. Surrounded by a large garden (about 3,000 square meters), complete with a magnificent, large veranda equipped for conversation and dining area overlooking the sea, the house is on two levels: a ground floor and a basement. On the ground floor there is a living room with a fireplace fitted with a sliding glass door, two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a large kitchen-dining area with a lava-stone barbecue fireplace. The roof of the kitchen-dining area is in glass, shielded by a motorized retractable awning: if it is sunny you can close it. In the evening, or on winter days, you can open it to admire the stars or enjoy all the light of the Sicilian sky. From the kitchen you can go out directly on the back courtyard and, from there, access the outdoor kitchen, fully equipped including a lava stone barbecue, and the pool area. Downstairs, closed by an automated double glazed door, an indoor heated pool with jacuzzi. On the left, the home theater, equipped with a large television and a closet, secluded by an ancient oriental door, that hides everything necessary for a drink in the pool: fridge, sink, glasses etc. Also: an alcove with two beds and a bathroom with a step in shower. Outside, the pool area is served by two large gazebos, which respectively host a dining area and a relaxation area. Still in the garden: a wooden shed with bathroom for the staff. At the bottom of the garden, a sand pit for children’s games and a large area for parking and car handling. Two centuries-old olive trees (about 700 years old) dominate the outdoor kitchen area and the sand pit area. Still in the garden, fruit trees and young olive trees. The property is completely enclosed by dry walls, with fake windows that light up in the evening. Dry walls define every drop in the garden, creating an effect of ancient movement and, at the same time, design. The lighting of the well-kept garden deserves a special mention. Which can be changed at will with a simple button: from full light for a party in the garden, up to the light of charm: only led that brush the palms and the drywall, to enjoy the spectacle of the starry sky. The whole house, from the bathrooms to the garden, passing through the indoor pool, is served by a music system. Air conditioning is everywhere, bathrooms included. The heating is underfloor. A photovoltaic system is placed on the roof of the veranda, completely invisible. All the systems (boiler, electrical panels, air conditioning machines, reverse osmosis machine that ensures perfectly clean and limescale water to the whole house) are located in a small building in its own right facing the courtyard back. Access to the property is through a large electric gate and a pedestrian gate, both in wrought iron. The immediate surroundings are quiet and silent. At nightfall, from the seafront veranda you can enjoy beautiful sunsets and take an aperitif cradled only by the rustle of the waves.
