Contemporary MANSION curated by a top designer and situated in Malta`s most affluent hilltop neighbourhood being sold in SHELL form. Evoking height and depth at every corner, the property is spread across four distinct levels – all immersed in natural sunlight. Bordered by mature trees and lush green hedges. The property has a deliberately ascetic facade contrasting with the cool opulence inside. From the road, visitors are guided along a lengthy pathway which cuts through the fresh grass of an expansive front lawn. The focal point upon entry is a triple-height glass wall which frames the pool outside, breathes light into the entire building and connects to two main wings of the house. A floating staircase at the centre of the property guides visitors to various spacious landings and palatial lounges. The imposing structure helps to circulate air and illuminate the levels below, while enjoying a backdrop of the pool`s waterfall, itself bathing in a distant view of the Mediterranean horizon. Intuitively designed this property hosts a large variety of lavish entertainment spaces and cosy hideouts. The north wing is dedicated to family life, where a luxurious lounge extends into an elongated kitchen overlooking the pool deck. The kitchen is adjacent to a private multi-purpose room including guest bathroom, study and pantry which can be hidden seamlessly away behind a sliding timber wall, enabling a clean and harmonious atmosphere at all times. The south wing begins with a majestic dining room designed for 18 people. Like all the other rooms it is warmed by a marble peninsula fireplace and surrounded by luscious lounge space. Just behind the dining room is a cigar terrace surrounded by mature foliage from the evergreen trees planted below. Boldly juxtaposed with the endless vastness of the house, a secluded study hidden behind the living space. Accessible through hinged translucent bookshelves, the private library exudes tranquillity. The 1st floor hosts four immense bedroom suites. The master suite, spread across 97sqm, has a nursery suite nestled alongside it for maximum flexibility. If the nursery is not needed, the master suite can be customised to 130 sqm, allowing for his and hers en suites, walk-in wardrobes and terraces. The 2 junior suites make up the rest of the 1st floor, each with their own en suites, walk-in wardrobes and terraces. Spread across 77 and 65 sqm respectively, the stately junior suite link to a reading lounge and a 70 sqm viewing circulation lounge.
