Luxury castle arabesque style mansion in Marbella with beautifuls sea and mountain views, incredible decoration, cinema, indoor pool…fantastic design…A unique chance to buy a private property, which is a landmark in itself, situated on an expansive plot of more than 5,000 m2 in the prestigious Club Golf Resort. The inspiration behind the construction of this home, named Casa Morisca, was the 12th century Moorish fort located on the mountain behind the golf course. It has been built in the Morisco style with modern amenities. The avant-garde design of this home is surrounded by nature and offers stunning 360-degree views of the golf course, mountains, and sea, as it is located in a “bird’s view” position. The grand property was originally built in 2008 with carefully selected materials handcrafted by artisans such as carpenters, metal forgers, and tile-makers from the Alpujarras located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Upon entering the property through the sweeping cobbled driveway, you are immediately struck by its impressive features. The main entrance leads to a breathtaking Moorish-style atrium with handcrafted Alhambra plaster arches, overlooking a fountain in the basement. The automated sliding glass roof of the atrium allows for a cool breeze to pass through and over the inside-outside pool. The property is spread over three levels, with each floor offering bright and spacious rooms and a full-length atrium that is bathed in Mediterranean sunlight.
The ground floor features a living room with a double-height barrelled ceiling, an emerald green Indian marble floor, a grand statement fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light and open onto a full-length and partly covered terrace with stunning golf and sea views. There is also an elegant study located on one side of the living room. The bespoke kitchen and adjoining family room lead to an outside dining area with a built-in vented barbecue. The ground floor also includes a family cloakroom and two guest cloakrooms for generous entertaining. Informal dining is facilitated with both table and counter seating in the kitchen which connects directly to the formal dining room.
The first floor houses five spacious en-suite bedrooms, all with breathtaking views from their private terraces. There is also a large roof terrace with a covered kitchenette and dining area that offers incredible 360-degree panoramic views. The lower level of the property is dedicated to entertainment and relaxation, featuring a large indoor-outdoor heated infinity pool surrounded by luxurious Travertine marble, a gym, a cinema room, a games room, and an adjoining shower-changing room.
Two completely independent guest or staff apartments with separate access via a sunken courtyard with a fountain are also available. The lower level also features a generous double garage with direct access to the house and a two-vehicle covered carport at ground floor level with direct access to the ground floor. There is a 4-person lift from the basement to the roof, but the semi-circular stairwell with amber-tinted star windows and cascading antique lanterns is an option to enjoy the vista across the atrium. Other special features of the property include direct buggy access onto the golf course, grey water/rain recovery system with 2 x 2000 litre underground tanks for garden watering, and 3000-litre freshwater storage tanks. The property also has a complete domotics system for lighting, heating, and air conditioning, under-floor heating, and a fully zoned security alarm with a camera system.
Resort is a gated residential resort surrounded by nature, with 24-hour security, an 18-hole golf course, an exclusive equestrian centre, and a Balinese inspired clubhouse serving excellent cuisine. The property, Casa Morisca, is not just a statement but a family dwelling. It is always an experience and never dull.
