The stylish luxury villa is located in Alto-Alentejo Portugal and sitting on top of a hill and overlooking extensive olive groves it does offer a panoramic view to sore eyes bored with the concrete jungles of modern cities.
The 800 square meter residence is a chic amalgamation of the characteristic form of old manor houses of the Alentejo along with sleek and well defined lines of contemporary structures. The resultant creation is a gorgeous two level villa that largely employs soothing neutral shades is predominantly clad in white and employs graceful use of glass and stone.
A giant hanging chandelier a large faux fur rug a stylized bronze lion perched upon a table and an ornate chaise lounge perfectly arranged for a graceful fainting scene – all of these items would look out of place alone. However together they create the sort of dramatic effect cultivated best by old Hollywood.
It is truly amazing the way most modern home owners are now as much concerned about the views that their home offers as they are of the interiors and the décor. That definitely seems to be the growing trend as designers and architect houses are being asked to create structures that specifically take into account the surroundings and ensure that the blend into the natural setting seamlessly while offering unabated view of the natural habitat. The owners of this have in fact waited several years to obtain the right piece of land that will offer them stunning views of Mt. Asama.
The top floor is pretty much cantilevered and wrapped up in a black zinc cladding and the use of extravagant floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that there is a wonderful 270 degree view of the Bay area. The interiors are truly spacious simple in their constitution and completely uncluttered.
