Sitting within the desirable neighbourhood of Cap Martinet, this six-bedroom villa fuses earth-toned interiors with a contemporary aesthetic, all with the white-sands of Talamanca beach on its doorstep. Featuring rustic touches that pay homage to traditional Ibicencan design and echo the lush surroundings, it’s a home that has also been designed with the practicalities of 21st century living in mind, complete with a tourist rental license.
On the ground floor of the house, a spacious, open-plan kitchen and dining area. The kitchen, a contemporary yet pared-back space, where wooden accents add warmth to slick, black integrated cabinetry and marble worktops. It’s considerately zoned by a generous island-cum-breakfast-bar. The formal, light-flooded dining room is complete with polished floors and uplit storage. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open up the entire floor to the outside and lend access to a private terrace, where an infinity pool affords wraparound views of the historic Dalt Vila and rolling mountains. Around the corner, a comfortable reception room with log fire and a state-of-the-art sound system. Sharing the floor are two double bedrooms, one with its own contemporary en-suite bathroom. They’re restful spaces, with crisp, white walls and large windows. Outside, an al-fresco dining area with its own outdoor kitchen and bench seating.
Past an exposed stone wall which roots the villa in its natural surroundings, a cantilevered timber staircase leads upstairs, where three double bedrooms comprise the space. The master is a contemporary idyll; muted palettes, sleek floors and doors leading out to a fully decked rooftop terrace. It’s served by a modern en suite, with a large freestanding bath, twin rainfall showers and a muralled splashback that makes for a striking focal point. Along the corridor, two further bedrooms, both with an abundance of seamless integrated cabinetry and one with an en suite. Two floors down in the basement, a charming bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, ideal for visiting guests. Descend a set of stairs into the sunken floor cinema room, an atmospheric space with ambient uplighting, fitted-bench seating and woven panelled walls. Plus, a gallery-style mezzanine. Next door, a well-equipped home gym with its own bathroom.
