Villa Alicia, tradition and privacy in Elviria 8 Sep, 2020 Manolo Alarcon
The charm of traditional Andalusian houses is one of the fascinating wonders in southern Spain. Their whitewashed walls and the earthy tones of their ceramic tiles are the perfect combination, together with the green of the lush vegetation.
Those elements bring up memories of the Arabic past and other cultures intertwined in our beautiful region. It is no coincidence that these are the colors of the Andalusian flag.
Traditional Andalusian architecture exhibits its splendor in old towns such as Marbella’s and Estepona’s, in country fincas and cortijos, and also in villas located in modern residential areas.
Villa Alicia, in the prestigious Cerrado de Elviria urbanization, in Marbella East, is a characteristic example of a house style that never goes out of fashion.
In fact, its demand is surging, in line with a growing trend favoring the natural and the traditional: a counterpoint to the accelerated technologization that marks our lives.
Villa Alicia could well represent what we feel and imagine when hearing the expression “cozy house”. The key is not only aesthetics, but also the quality and solidity of its materials: marble covering all floors and in bathroom walls, ceramic on roofs and on terraces floors…
Its original design is the opposite of monotony and evokes the charm of Andalusian villages, with their white houses and arched windows.
However, Villa Alicia offers a way of life that has nothing to do with the bustle of a traditional town. One of its great advantages is its absolute privacy.
The wise arrangement of its plot keeps us sheltered from any unwanted gaze, both inside the villa and in the garden, in the pool area or in the beautiful gazebo located next to it.
Birdsongs are the only sounds reaching us, despite the fact that Villa Alicia is just a few minutes walk from all kinds of services (Elviria Shopping Center, supermarkets, shops, restaurants …).
The relatively elevated position of the area, above the A-7 motorway, allows for spectacular panoramic views of the sea from the roof solarium.
On the other hand, Las Chapas beach, one of the best in Marbella, is less than 5 minutes drive away. If we are looking for more entertainment, the famous Nikki Beach Club is in the immediate vicinity.
In keeping with Andalusian traditions, Villa Alicia’s architecture will keep us cool inside, though it is extremely bright on all four sides.
A perfect family house
With its 5 double bedrooms and its large living room with fireplace, it is undoubtedly the ideal family home.
On top of it all, we highlight the meticulous details, which make a difference and can make us fall in love for good: the spacious and cozy traditional cellar, the beautiful tiles that decorate the bathrooms, the well-cared mature garden, with its grown trees (olive, lemon, jasmine…).
