A unique residence typical of the world famous American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright
Viñas Viejas dominates, whilst quietly nestling in a fold of the intimate and very exclusive “Rancho Domingo” estate, ten minutes west of Málaga airport.
The 600 m2 house set upon an elevated 4,250 m2 site on the edge of the picturesque village of Benalmádena, provides a splendid stage for enjoying the dramatic views of the Costa del Sol. The Mediterranean Sea to North Africa presents a blue backcloth to the magnificent panorama, which it commands.
An electronic automatic bronze gateway stands vigil over the entrance expanding to a spectacular vista over a romantic winding driveway, flanked by flower gardens bestowing a panoply of colour.
The house and gardens have been completely reformed and modernised, preserving the original special architectural characteristics. Only the finest of first class materials manipulated by selected artisans were utilised in the reconstruction. The finished result is a home of tremendous beauty and warmth.
An imposing hand crafted teak door permits entrance to the central living area, laid in Portuguese beige/ pink marble with teak inlay. A masonry fireplace adds majestic aura to this bright spacious area illuminated by the Lloyd Wright signature of clerestory windows, a bay window adds further natural brightness providing a portrait vista.
Three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms; two of which are set in hand selected Onyx, embrace the central living area consisting of drawing and dining rooms, a den with a double pull out sofa bed, a teak laid library and a magnificent fully equipped kitchen.
