A modern and truly exceptional villa set within nearly 4 hectares of private grounds with spectacular elevated sea and countryside views; perfect for enjoying those wonderful Ibizan sunsets year-round.
Designed to the highest specifications in a superb location, Villa Galera is undoubtedly one of the finest on the island and the interiors reflect the owners love for modern art and design. Comprising 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms over ground and first floor levels, the property, which has a built area of around 634 sqm (1,305 sqm including terraces, patio and pool), includes a fully fitted kitchen, an expansive living area and dining room, a study, service area, gym, Jacuzzi, Hammam steam room and a magnificent swimming pool (17 x 5 metres) surrounded by a sun terrace with chill out area.
Villa Galera is situated on former agricultural land in the middle of a pine forest. The outdoor space is equally impressive with many areas to lounge and relax in the beautifully landscaped grounds, lined with olive trees and fragrant citrus trees. This is a villa designed for year-round use. Deliberate Zen design features (green glass walls, flooring and dining table made of Spanish “Paloma Blanca” stone) create a sense of unity. The property also boasts almond trees, vineyards and a total of 66 olive trees which produce an exquisite range of organic oil.
This two-storey building, accessed is swathed in floor to ceiling glass panels to maximise views and to allow natural light to flood the rooms. A large glass entrance hall leads to the double height living and dining room area with sliding glass panels on either side which open onto a natural stone patio on one side and the pool and terrace area on the other. A second, sunken living room with fireplace is located off the main living area with direct access to the immaculate garden.
Off the main living area is a beautiful, fully fitted kitchen which includes an island shaped to replicate the design of the villa.
The interior design successfully showcases and pays homage to the work of many of the greatest names in design and contemporary art, such as Panton, Mies van der Rohe, Jacobsen and Eames.
The house is distributed as follows:
Ground Floor (361 sqm + 215 sqm of terraces)
First Floor (144 sqm + 150 sqm of terraces)
Basement (131 sqm + 75 sqm of terraces)
All bedrooms have been beautifully designed with floating beds and ample storage. All bedrooms are fully air conditioned.
A separate, self-contained apartment with a small open plan kitchen and one double bedroom with bathroom is located next to the gym. There's also a wooden bungalow in the forest (20 sqm) with its own terrace of 20 sqm.
There’s parking for up to eight cars and other features include a solar energy powered hot water and water purification system and air conditioning and underfloor heating throughout.
A planning application has been submitted (and paid for) to develop a separate residential project within the grounds (18,600 sqm plot). Plans, by the same architect for Vila Galera, Belgian Bruno Erpicum, would allow for a villa of around 450 sqm to be constructed, designed to also be totally private with equally spectacular views.
Situated in a very private and elevated location, Villa Galera faces due west towards the headland of Cap Negret and the islands s’Espertas. The property has easy access to several wonderful bays and beaches including Punta Galera, Cala Salada and Cala Gració (around 5 minutes by car or 15 to 20 minutes on foot).
By road, the property is located 18 km northwest of Ibiza historic town centre and port and 23 km from the Ibiza Airport (approximately 20 minutes by car) which receives direct flights from various mainland Spanish cities as well as London and a host of European centres.
Spain is Western Europe’s second largest country with over 4,000 kilometres of coastline, soaring mountains and cosmopolitan cities and a perennial second home favourite. Its charm extends from yachting in the beautiful Balearics to feasting on tapas in Barcelona, from prestigious golf courses shaded by umbrella pines to the regular fiestas that bring everyone out to party.
Spain’s wonderfully varied architecture includes Roman ruins and Pueblos Blancos, the dazzling white Andalucía villages that hark back to Spain’s Moorish history. This is the country that produced Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso and where Gaudi’s wondrous legacy lights up Barcelona and Catalonia.
Easily accessible from around the world with numerous monumental airports and an excellent EU-funded road network, Spain also has the world’s second biggest high-speed train network. There are international schools and good healthcare too and the combination of this impressive modern infrastructure with its well-preserved national identity is yet another reason to love España.
The Balearic Islands in general and Mallorca and Ibiza in particular have held the winning cards for property investors in recent years. These two islands in the Mediterranean have seen substantial investment from international buyers who love the laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle that caters for people used to the very finest in life.
Traditionally golfers, sailors and cyclists headed to Mallorca while Ibiza attracted a party-loving crowd yet today these differences are blurred. Both islands offer a family-friendly base with sophisticated facilities and a modern infrastructure and property choices are largely down to personal taste.
Glamorous Ibiza is known as The White Isle, a former hippy hangout turned global music centre with undeveloped countryside in the north and gleaming yachts packed into star-studded marinas in the south.
Ibiza has some of Europe’s best clubs and several exclusive beach clubs but all with an understated and bohemian vibe that consistently wins it new fans of all ages. Ibiza has expertly managed to become both a celebrity hideaway and the most sought after see-and-be-seen body-beautiful holiday destination.
The sale of the property will be effected through the sale of the totality of the shares of two Spanish companies (accounting and taxes run by Unidad). First company: 18,103 sqm plot of land with Villa Galera. Second company: 18,600 sqm plot of unbuilt land, adjacent to the Villa Galera plot, sold with an architectural project by Bruno Erpicum. This should open the possibility to apply for a building permit for a c. 450 sqm villa within the next two to three years.
Most of the furniture is included (except some furniture which we are committed and all art works).
The rental yield is excellent and fixed costs are low:
Note: The property has a tourist license (ET) 2014 and offers very good rental return.
